7. He is expressing the desperation of many -- including me

I fucking hate the fact that once again we are going to hand the keys over to Wall Street and Big Corporations. WE are sewing the seeds of our own destruction -- or rather fertilizing those voracious Weeds that are already overgrown and choking out life for the rest of the garden.

I am not some naive millennial. I'm 63, have seen all the warnings that people like Bernie were giving in the 80's and 90's come true, and now we're once again ignoring the handwriting on the wall. We're paving the path to a dystopia.

Even if Clinton ekes out a win, the Big Money Big Power crowd will still have the thumbs on the scale.

I guess that makes you happy. It pisses the hell out of me.
