    With all the security, presidents normally live in bubbles.  Unless they make the effort, they are only going to hear from a small group of advisors.  I wonder if part of the current President’s problem is that he is just not hearing about the seriousness of current problems.

    Biden doesn’t think they are problems. He thinks we are all deluded.

    Or he thinks they are the fault of Republicans.

    I think the best compromise might have been to have one U.S. senator from each state elected and one chosen by the state.  The other idea would be to allow states to determine if they want their senators popularly-elected or not.

    Having some senators determined by their states could really help protect some freedoms and avoid some spending, but perhaps it would be different and manipulated by things like social media today.
