This has been my point for the past 4 years. Trump is a symptom and not a cause. Micheal Moore said it best about Trump being the middle finger that middle America voted with.\n\nAnd the provocative aspect that (I believe it was) Mayor Pete pointed out is that the votes for Bernie were in the same vein (the political system is broke and needs to be overhauled).\nIt would have been interesting to see how Bernie would have played out, but after 4 years of the "Trump experiment" (especially during a health crisis), I'm down for traditional gubberment for a few more years of stability before trying something quite so radical.\nHopefully a lesson has been learned about selecting a president without honor and integrity! I have been shocked at the extent to which an unscrupulous president can commandeer power. Much of his base supports his actions, but I don't think they have honestly evaluated whether they believe it is appropriate to allow any president to engage in the types of manipulations that Trump routinely does.\nIt is also interesting to see how effectively he has been able to weaponize his base against republican politicians who do not suck up to him!
