    R.I.P.. Sure coulda used him in 2016.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    The notion that a president has the potential to ride in like the cavalryman in shining armor to save the day and make us free, happy, and prosperous runs away with absurd. Fighting the overwhelming tide that has been set up by whatever virtue is nothing that can be put to good effect by a president or any other political figure or organization without vast popular support. Theye have managed to set the population at its own throat with such perfection that achieving a critical mass against Themme is just this side of impossible. Whether this is all the result of a vast and deep conspiracy of "globalists" (or whomever), or simply that of the logical progression to be realized by successive generations of men seeking by their nature the same things (re-election, wield of power, profiting through office or other position, etc.) is irrelevant to the fact that the political status quo is nearly impossible to defeat.

    The state of the common man, intellectually, morally, and so forth now keeps the population in a sufficiently fractious state of mutually conflicting interests, distrust, and hatred through manipulation. Until that is overcome, which likely will not be happening any time soon, there is no way to break the apparent grip on the political nation. Just look at the large support Trump enjoys, and then look at the seismic wave of opposition that is building with the clear collusion of the established network media. The bull$#@! and outright lies are so thick, nobody with a shred of intelligence and integrity can deny them. Compare with the large support Obama had, at least for the first two years, and the swooningly unstinting media support he enjoys to this day, despite his behaviors that smacked of treason and other blatant corruptions. But of course, there's nothing to see here.
    Through lives and lives shalt thou pay, O' king.

    Perhaps so Osan but if people actually got to keep their own money then Lord knows the improvements that could be had. I like the argument, regardless of how much of a puppet POTUS is.
