When I see what's going on in this country I must shake my head and wonder where is everybody's head at? As far as I am concerned, the left his bed is the right. This of session with Russia has gotten completely out of hand. I'm not saying that the investigation by the special counsel Robert Mueller shouldn't go on, but I am tired of people like Rachel Maddow constantly saying Russia this and Russia that entreating that nation like it's the worst enemy on earth.

As far as the right is concerned, it is unbelievable that people still support a president that does nothing but lie to the American people and cover things up like his affairs in all his financial dealings. It is my belief that this president will be impeached very soon and I dread the thought of the president Pence.

Senator Elizabeth Warren introduced a bill in Congress that would force corporations to become more democratic. You should see her address to the center for American progress. She says that democracy in United States is "crumbling". I believe that democracy in United States never existed. It didn't exist when the Declaration of Independence was written, it didn't exist when the pioneers exterminated the Indians, and it never existed during both world wars.

It's amazing how some people believe that they live in a democracy. We have 350 million people in United States and only two major political parties. The truth of the matter is that both political parties the Democrats and Republicans are controlled by corporations and the military-industrial complex. Americans do not have a voice and haven't had a voice for very long time.

Senator Elizabeth Warren may talk a good game which is worth over $6 million dollars. Senator Bernie Sanders talks about game but he always votes to fund weapons for Israel and Saudi Arabia and falls in line to put sanctions on Russia. He also voted to fund the Iraq war even though he voted against it.

When are people going to wake up and understand that it is the people that have the power to change not only our country, but the whole world. When people understand that passive resistance and violent insistence on a grand scale will totally rocked the corporate and military-industrial complex.

I don't know if I'll see a change in my lifetime, but people must understand that these two political parties do not have the People's best interests in mind. They are all bought like puppies at a puppy farm by lobbyists and super Pac's and all the other people that finance their political campaigns and give them jobs if they lose their elected seats in the revolving door of Washington lobbyists.

We can upend the system by voting for progresses in midterm elections and give Trump a resounding defeat by electing enough Democrats in the house and the Senate to impeach him. Vice President Mike Pence should be put on notice that he too will be under scrutiny by the American people. The American people need to stop putting people in politics on a pedestal. These people in these two major political parties are corrupt to the core and that includes some so-called "progressives". I went to a Bernie Sanders rally here in South Carolina in 2016 and tried to ask why 55% of our budget goes to the military. The speaker, the one who wrote a book on Bernie Sanders, knew I was going to answer that question because he overheard me talking with my wife. Even though I was at the front of the gathering sitting in the first row raising my hand to ask a question he completely ignored me. Senator Bernie Sanders doesn't like to talk about how much money goes into the military-industrial complex.
