I love Biden to death and he's one of my favorite political figures (you can check my post history) but the dude is creepy af and I am still surprised no news came up of him harassing anybody.

Well, given Trump mowed over multiple allegations of sexual harassment and shady business dealings (including fraud) without even anyone really looking into it, and a former Director of the CIA who had been the national spymaster during the dirtiest and most vile period activities, domestically and abroad was elected U.S. President in 1988 (which Karl Jung called the "very stupidest level of human thinking")  I suppose sensationalism and mob thinking don't care about morals or decency at all. We also saw this phenomenon, although in a MUCH more disastrous form, in Germany 1933. The very Achilles heel of democratic, electoral representative governmental systems. But, I guess, no government style in existence is perfect - but all could use, and consider, improvement - though many get instinctively, irrationally resistant to improvement and reform.

There are a lot of people heavily invested in the current power structure.  That will make it difficult to make major changes.

Vladimir Lenin had a way - not one I'd personally advocate, except as a very last resort (and hopefully the results would be a bit better if such drastic measures were needed)...

Your confusing list,which is imo a bunch of politicians would would be terrible as politicians,and Sherrod Brown is younger than Sanders? And you said he’s to old? I do howver like Sanders,Biden,Duckworth,Brown,and Ryan. However that’s it the rest in my honest opinion suck.
