      I respectfully disagree with the idea that government is what people make of it. Discussions about the fitness of the general population to elect officials began with the first Continental Congress. We may be able to vote but our choices are limited to those who will support the bureaucracy that perpetuates all corrupt governments like ours.

      A good example of how this works is ready to serve processed meals. We are given the choice between Marie Callender, Banquet, Bertolli, Healthy Choice and P.F. Changs. But few people realize they are all produced by the same company. It may seem strange that a company would produce products to compete with itself but they have actually eliminated competition. We are given the illusion of choice but in reality are supporting a single entity.

      With the 2 party system and even most Independents, we are given the illusion of choice but are voting to maintain the bureaucracy that maintains our inept government by rendering the vote useless. I hope you are right about a new leaf.

      I do not think that what's happening in the current American political atmosphere is new, but I do think that it will turn a new leaf on the way many systems are run in America, not so much because of the newness of the political atmosphere, but more so how the people of today react to it. The government is what the people make of it despite the rules and laws etc.

      What we are seeing now is nothing new. It is being presented as new by news readers who's memories are limited to their last teleprompter reading. You should read about the brutal political exchanges between Hamilton, Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Jackson and others in the early days of our Republic. The power allotted to the new Federal Government was a polarizing issue that lead to the creation of our 2-party system. Again in the early 19th century, Slavery and Federal Supremacy lead to a shift in party alignment which created another hostile political atmosphere. We see it again during the suffrage movement.

      This current political cycle reflects a probable shift is party alliances. The issue is the same one since this Nation was founded. Although the Federal Government has established it's supremacy, the debate is do we give them still more or take away some of what they have: Nothing new here.
