    Citizens United, yes or no? Roe v. Wade, yes or no? Alito, or Sotomayor?

    Of course it matters.

    as a Canadian, who watches your political theatre with some objectivity, having no dog in the fight, I am simply amazed at how much effort goes into the drama of presidential elections, and then how very, very little that the president actually does different than the previous guy. It strikes me as a huge distraction, a ruse to let the public think they are having a say matters of governance. It is rather sad to watch, and sad to think that we are no better here in Canada…….we (our leaders) have all been sold to the highest corporate bidders.
