115. Those with the gold, rule.
Those with little brains, let them.
The press has been replaced with mouthpieces.
But we have the Constitution. This IS a Democracy.
Long term appointments are our biggest threat, I think.

I saw a show on Brazil, and couldn't help but think that we are on our spiral downward, in this country. Shoot first, steal elections through fraud, censure, and a whole array of things really brought me down. This all congeals when I think that Fitzgerald might, and probably won't, be able to continue his work.

But there is hope. I know it's around here somewhere. Just give me a light.

I love your post. There are absolutes that this country was built upon, and they still stand, or it's not America.
