    Can I just say that my dad, who is a retired history professor, recently said to me that he really believes "the system is broken" and that there is no real political representation of the people anymore.

    This is someone who is liberal politically, but far from extreme or radical in his beliefs--who has always been a dependable Democratic vote in every election since the early 1960s.  I've never heard him so pessimistic about our political system, even in the 1980s.  One thing he pointed out is that even the Supreme Court now seems to be on the side of protecting corporate interests.

    As he said to me, "It's another Gilded Age." Enough is enough.
