Two things about the entertaining time spent watching the American election activities:

1) the way in which candidates tell blatant lies that are designed to either elevate them or diminish their competitors.

2) The way followers and supporters of the lying candidate accept and cheer the lies is difficult to understand.

We all know that they’re lies. The press, the internet, fact checkers of all kinds are correcting and revealing the real facts. What kind of people are they that they so blindly overlook reality and accept the fantasy? Are there that many American people who are that immature?

Admittedly, Bernie Sanders dream is unlikely to come about. But it’s not a crazy dream, because we’ve had it like that in the past. I grew up in the forties and fifties, when every family had a comfortable income.

If Bernie had his way, life would be rich for everyone again.
