I just had a mental vision from StarTrek TOS where Harcourt Fenton “Harry” Mudd in ‘I, Mudd’ is confronted by 500 android copies of his wife Stella! <shudder!!!> Reminds me of an ex-wife…
The way it looks from my perspective is… State and National representatives are selected through the people’s vote. The presidential selection is determined by the electoral process, which is… those already elected to office and part of the system.
Why do I keep envisioning these two gangsters in pinstriped suits visiting neighborhood retailers offering protection insurance, and if they turn it down, some disaster befalls the proprietor or his business. Well, they tried to warn him.

All these stories about Atlantis, super-advanced technologies, Crystal energy, etc… Plato was the first to “remember” a story which he said he had a manuscript given to him from his grand-father and told to him by Solon, a priest who heard of them from the Egyptians; including a war between the Athenians and Atlanteans which the Athenians won some 900 years earlier. Plato’s version never mentioned any crystal power or telepathic abilities. Perhaps that was part of the story that was “lost”.

If that were so, it’s because the non-partisan comments do not reflect the bigoted perspectives of those with severe tunnel vision who only parrot the vitriolic toxins of the politically incompetent; although possibly misaligned, they can, at least, string together their own views, opinions and observations in a cohesive thought pattern about the individual without being fed regurgitated partisan bigotry.
People who feel the need to associate themselves with one group so they can accuse and condemn another group rather than point out their groups accomplishments are pathetic and not worth listening to. Sadly, I wouldn’t want to associate myself with either.
