If people keep electing Democrats; i,e, Socialist, Marxist, NAZIs (National Socialist), Communist, etc.; then everyone will continue to suffer. The Democrats want to be rulers and not servants. Remember, elected individuals are elected to SERVE the public not be rulers. A elected official is basically a waiter.
