Members of the party in congress are more than willing to give any president of their party all the power he wants and will defend any president's power grabs, actions and executive orders because he is a member of their party. This is what I mean that those in congress of the presidents party stop being members of congress and become members of the administration. They view congress's job as giving the president everything he wants and more. Only the party out of power tries to be members of congress, but a lot of that is show as they just want to make the president look bad. Once their party enters the White House they will very quickly become part of the administration.

    I am old enough to remember Sam Rayburn, Mike McCormick and Carl Albert as Speakers of the House. All three would work with any president as long as the president didn't try to infringe on congress's authority. The same be said when LBJ and Mike Mansfield were the Majority leaders of the Senate, both would work with any president, but both wouldn't let any president, even of their own party grab power away from them. All respected congress the institution, the co-equal branch of government. Not so anymore.

    Also back in those days our representatives and senators were Americans first and Republicans and Democrats second. Again not so today. Nonchalant, I suppose so. I see no change or even a willingness to change on the horizon. I see the president getting more and more powerful as future presidents utilize the precedence this president has set. I see members of the party of the president going along with everything he want and everything he does.

    I grew up in the 1950's, Washington D.C. might as well been on Mars for all the influence they had over our daily lives. Today you can't go to the bathroom without government playing some role in it. But this is what most Americans have chosen. They want big and powerful government, NSA spying, no big deal as long as I get healthcare, unemployment benefits, welfare payments. IRS targeting people and organizations, no big deal as long as I have social security, Medicare, Medicaid, SNAP, EIC's, tax breaks, subsidies etc. Government dictating what a citizen has to buy, regulations governing a citizens daily life, no big deal as long as the government takes care of my daily wants regardless of the decisions I have made in life, what actions I did wrong. This is what we want today. Get use to it.

    There is no changing it. Switch parties and presidents, it is still business as usual. Government will continue to grow and become Omni powerful. The people will be here to serve the state, government, not vice versa. Think about it, isn't that exactly what is happening today.
    Great post! ...

    Greetings, Pero.

    Have you ever lived within mountain ranges and then watched wind-mill farms go up and destroy your view and serenity?
    With locales at the bottom getting the money for schools and such.
    Which never had a view to lose.
    While other locales get no offset.

    And think of the National Forest .
    Sanders has been bought off? Ok, sure

    I do get long winded at times. But at times there is no short way to say what I want to say.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    It isn't my view.
    I learn a lot passing through VT each time to Maine.
    I have worked there before and know how the people feel.
    Donald Trump is a poor excuse for a deflection.

    Sanders has POTUS ambitions and is trying to make a name for himself on NSA, as Nader would.
    Sanders' no-compromise attitude on Labor and Social Security has hurt the DEM. party.
    He is as dangerous as Nader, who gave us Bush in 2000.

    We in Illinois are also blessed with the unsightly wind-farms, built after locals settle and build their homes.
    We have no studies yet on long-term exposure to the frequency and intensity of the EMPs from these wind-farms.
    Our solar farm does a much nicer job.

    So you know how people feel? You would know he is the 3rd most popular senator in America... You would also know he accepts no corporate donations to his campaign. And i have no idea what your talking about with wind farms.

    You do realize the Senator Leahy has also been a huge supporter of this wind energy project as well correct?

    And about this "foreign companies" Senator Sanders is a "puppet" of can you name them?
