"By showing so much, Ocasio-Cortez is completely demystifying the process....

She's bringing everyone in, which, in a representative democracy, is exactly what should be happening, especially at a time when we have the ability to be more transparent than ever before. It's also what's necessary to get young people interested and involved in politics. We don't need to be making the process seem any more complicated than it actually is, and we don't need to scare away perfectly eligible candidates from running because they don't know what they're getting themselves into. What we do need is the Ocasio-Cortezs of the world to continue being open and honest about what it means to serve their communities, and then we need even more history-making young people to join her."

"Remember, Remember, the 5th of November, The Gunpowder Treason and plot. I know of no reason why Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot." Guy Fawkes by EndlessSunflowers in quotes

I like this excerpt from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Fawkes_Night

Gathering wood for the bonfire increasingly became the province of working-class children, who solicited combustible materials, money, food and drink from wealthier neighbours, often with the aid of songs. Most opened with the familiar "Remember, remember, the fifth of November, Gunpowder Treason and Plot". The earliest recorded rhyme, from 1742, is reproduced below alongside one bearing similarities to most Guy Fawkes Night ditties, recorded in 1903 at Charlton on Otmoor:

Don't you Remember, The Fifth of November, 'Twas Gunpowder Treason Day,

I let off my gun, And made'em all run. And Stole all their Bonfire away. (1742)

I agree with you completely and in my more extreme moments I go so far as to think that the alcohol haze and football worship are by design to keep people too miserable and dumb so that they don't even care what's really going on, they just dismiss it all as crazy conspiracy theories. They don't even know which way is up. Damn. Those poor fools : ) Thanks again for saidit, it's been going well
