Are the Natives Restless?

This story about voters in mid-Michigan is backed up by a message I received from my Aunt here in California:

I attended a Foothill-sponsored current events discussion yesterday and was astonished at the comments – when asked what they were there for, every single participant said things like, “because I’m scared – angry – disillusioned – about what the administration is doing”. A woman with a very heavy French accent said this is going to be an “a – pok -o leepse.” A Japanese American woman who grew up in Japan in the 30’s said she could see the similarities between the US now and Japan then – loss of civil liberties, imperialism. Even a Texan participant was angry. The moderator said he thought we were on the verge of a breakdown of civilization!

This is vox populi – why isn’t anyone in Congress or the administration listening?
