LOL, in today's modern political era, I'm not surprised. Most Americans don't trust their government.

Public trust in government remains low. Only about one-quarter of Americans say they can trust the government in Washington to do what is right “just about always” (2%) or “most of the time” (22%).

If you go down a bit further in the poll, you'll find only 36% of Democrats and independents lean Democratic trust their government with Biden as president and the Democrats in control of congress. Much more information in the link dealing with Trust in Government.

Trust in government hasn't been there since Watergate. Even though we elect our government, we still don't trust them. Perhaps this is the reason we don't elect presidents from the same party back to back since FDR/Truman with the lone exception of Reagan/G.H.W. Bush and Bush was gone after one term. Perhaps it lack of trust when we elect a Democratic president, we turn around and give him a Republican House as with Bill Clinton and Obama. Why we elect a Republican president and turn around and give him a Democratic controlled house in the case of G.W. Bush and Trump. Perhaps we just plain don't trust those who we elect?

Okay, Trump. I do think he's an ever present danger. A danger that has succeeded slipping into the shadows. I don't like the trends I'm seeing, especially among independents who seem to have assigned Trump into the dust bin of ancient history.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
