@ashu001, it started way longer than a few decades ago. The original plan was for states to have more power than the fed, that was the first power grab. Once that happened, it's all been downhill from there. That's kind of what I was alluding to saying all our systems are broken.
I'm not exactly sure where in history the government decided they needed to protect us from ourselves. Power corrupts, only leads to wanting to consolidate more power by any means necessary.
Only thing I'm not in agreement with you on is your statement Bernie and Trump are same thing. Whether you agree with Bernie on his policies, he is coming from position of really wanting to help the majority (read non rich) of Americans. Trump wants to help Trump. I don't think you'll go into Bernie's office and see pictures of himself posted all over the walls. You seen what Trump's office looks like in Trump Tower?
I'm guessing you didn't really mean it that way, just that you consider him way too left for your taste and Trump way too (fill in direction, crazy maybe?) something else. If so, pretty much how I feel also. But if push comes to shove, I'm giving Bernie a shot before Trump. It will end up being more gridlock if Bernie gets in anyway, nothing will really happen. I just hope he has a good VP because that job will kill the poor old guy. :-)
