While I understand your frustration, his election year really is different for the simple reason that Trump had plans to be the last president. He prepped America for a third term and more by flirting with the idea of staying longer than two terms and cozying up to dictators. Previous presidents, say what you will about policy disagreements, hadn’t entrapped the establishment into hijacking America so as to end our democratic process.

I think you can expect parties to come together under the Democratic ticket this fall, and once they are free from entrapment, power bases will realign. The aftermath of the election is where it will get interesting. It might even produce good policy.

With that said, I concur that Biden is not the right choice to lead the nation. We can and should take this opportunity to nominate a candidate with a platform to address the issues of the day in a comprehensive manner, recognizing that real change starts with changing the ownership structure of the Federal Reserve from a bank to a credit union.

Whoever has the money makes the rules. Fighting over the rules when we have no influence over them because someone else has the money makes no sense. Therefore our focus should be on this singular issue. Once our money system is restructured, we’ll have another revenue source with which we may tap into for progressive policies such as a healthcare for all plan.

It’s not too late to nominate a candidate who truly represents America rather than America’s corporate interests. It’s up to the people to pressure the delegates to act.
