I have a very bad feeling, with no supporting evidence, that the nature of the politicians who took over the Republican Party and much of the Democratic Party may mean the majority have been bought. The complete failure to act or even comment strongly makes no sense. Russia is involved, the NRA is involved but there is too much of this. I refuse to think that rational people committed to the well being of a nation would make the decisions that they seem to make. Some, yes, but all?
