  1. This happened in the 18th Century NOT the 19th Century ,why do they always say 100yrs in the future then it really happened. They say we are in the 21st Century witch we are NOT we are in the 20th Century.

  2. There's no debate anymore. The American people aren't involved in these decisions anymore. Teddy was bi-polar. In his way he was worse than Trump. Many of us voted for Trump hoping he would stop the empirial path.
