Unfortunately, I did know about the Overstock guy. I didn't know all the details of his crazy. Frankly, I spend too much time on the internet. That is why I know too much about our failing democracy.

If the Democrats in power don't do something about the voter suppression - and it is more that, it is control of the election process - then this country is doomed. If they don't do something about the corruption, grift and complete annihilation of our supposed checks and balances in government, we are doomed.

I live in Georgia, one of the states leading the way for voter suppression and control of election decisions (overturn the results if necessary) by the GOP.

I really don't have much hope for this country.

And one more thing. People tend to attack other countries for their problems. I think any American who does that really hasn't taken a close look at our failing system.
