    But, let's be careful not to get this wrong and throw the bath water out with the baby. Because we're speaking to American politics and its' very democratic institutions. It's our actual Representatives, Judges, and Deep State executives who are corrupt, they are the babies in my analogy who need to be drained. Flushed and thrown out. That dirty bath water is the American system itself, our democracy not designed to be pretty.

    This is the system that can send an AOC to the House of Representatives. This is the system that can elect a Donald Trump. Primaries are wide open, the opinion of the American People....is the hand that is forced here. Ocasio Cortez can come in and create media and political upheaval and that is the beauty in the American political system. This woman is going to influence policy sooner or later, Donald Trump has absolutely changed the political game in America. Our politics are dictated by We the People. That is the hand that is forced. Thus, I hope we're all realizing...AOC....Trump....our primaries...our electoral processes.....they work, the dirty bath water needs to stay. We the People are the final decision, like it or not. We're the bath water....the swamp are the babies. And you start throwing babies out, you get attention. AOC indeed became a star when she defeated the entrenched Democrat in her Primary. She didn't win in a GOP district, her district is liberal, the baby she threw out was what's his face, they all sound the same to me. Some babies just cry all the time.

    People who enter the US without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the US legally

    Both Trump and AOC are outside of the system. That is why they are causing so many waves. AOC was making fun of Bernie's age yesterday. I smiled.
