Politics, as well as, religion & economics have a direct relation to one's everyday life. For instance, it now takes 2 heads of household's income to support a family instead of 1 income. This is due to the Federal Reserve Bank taking us off the Gold Standard, slowly at 1st since 1913 & suddenly in 1971, as well as, the CIA propagated feminist women's liberation & free love movements of the 1960s. This created more revenue for the federal government, since men & women now both have to work at full time jobs & are both paying taxes. Women use to be homemakers & involved in taking care of children after school. They were also involved in local community organizations like churches. Before this money maintained or gained value over time, now it loses value over time. The U.S. dollar has lost @ 95% of its value since 1971, increasing the ongoing wealth gap between the rich & poor. In accordance with the U.S. constitution, congress is supposed to regulate/maintain the weights & measures of money (gold & silver). Congress has not upheld its responsibility since 1913 when the Federal Reserve Bank was established, which is not federal & has no reserves.
Abortion & birth control also play a significant role in one's everyday life. Women who became pregnant & who were without husband were once shunned by society & their families. That's no longer a stigma. Now irresponsible women are rewarded for their bad behaviors. Abortion is now seen as a form of birth control by many men & women. Most women also now choose to have sex with irresponsible men (con-artists a.k.a. confidence artists), leaving responsible men in the shadows. When women choose to procreate with con-artists, more con-artists are created, creating more people like Obama or Trump.
Women are also now rewarded for their bad behaviors though family courts & the welfare system. Women now have the option for goverment to be the new male/father figure to them and their children. So now while single mothers are working at their full time job, government is indoctrinating their children through the public school system & MSM programming. Imo, this is why there are so many school shootings by young people, because they have no father figure in their lives & never learned how to control their aggression properly. This in conjunction with psychotropic drugs is a recipe to create school shooters.
My daily life is pretty good. I've got a higher net worth than 90% of people my age, I own a condo without a mortgage, with a dock slip 5 minutes away from the ocean & I have a great job. All that being said, there are many disenfranchised men & cat women being created by current politics & economics. Religion is being ignored by most.

So I'm wondering what do real everyday people think about the current state of political affairs here in the USA and other countries.
