Election year blues

Written as Biden overtakes Bernie in the delegate count…I’m sad that so many voters — understandably in view of misleading corporate media and poor education — don’t realize which Democratic candidate will best serve their real, as opposed to emotional, needs. By poor education, I mean that most social studies (history) taught in US public schools is boring and geared more toward developing unthinking patriotism than encouraging critical thinking and highlighting class and other key issues. If Biden can beat Trump, which I doubt, he’ll be a figurehead for behind-the-scenes manipulation by Wall Street, corporations that profit from war, the NRA, and all the other usual elite 1% suspects. Same old, same old, taking us for sure over the climate change/economic breakdown cliff. I’m sad, but not surprised. What a rotten system; ironically, one most Americans are proud of. We need to, but apparently are not going to, grow up.
