Following a week that saw the Republican president wholeheartedly tethering his brand to neo-Nazi white supremacists — resulting in near universal condemnation and tens of thousands of people taking to American streets to denounce bigotry and hatred — Democrats were in a better position than ever to capitalize on opposition momentum and present themselves as the party of integrity, racial unity, and tolerance. Instead they decided to send out an email condemning the president’s “empty promises” to build a wall along the Mexican border and make them pay for it.
I think it's pretty clear that at this point both parties are nothing more than corporate puppets.

I've never understood to build a physical wall. It would be ugly since no one really wants to put money on it. Why not a digital one. Posts with inferred cameras. Drones fling around like patrols. Ground radar to find the countless tunnels which if the wall is built won't stop them. Stupid. All of this. Just stupid.

In one of Jim Marrs's books (apologies, I can't remember which one, offhand), he points out that in Nazi Germany, the state took over the corporations. In America, the corporations have taken over the state. And the result is pretty much the same.
