Death to Super Heroes, Democracy Now

I read a lot of articles online, many of them about politics lately.  It seems that there are a lot of people trying to cope with the reality of a candidate with a 93% chance of winning somehow losing in a blowout.  On top of that, I’m seeing a lot of people talking about how bad life is outside of the cities and how their way of life is gone.  I read a lot of questions and complaints online, but never answers.  It’s baffling; are we venting or do we really not know how to resolve our own problems?  If we don’t know how to solve our hometown problems, how can we expect someone living in an ivory tower 2,000 miles away to know what is best for us?
