Draining the Swamp is not a new concept, but never more needed. In 1964 Ronald Reagan gave the "A time of choosing" speech campaigning for Barry Goldwater as President of the United States. The numbers have gotten bigger, the names are all changed, except Biden, and the need is real. A government causing problems instead of allowing the people to l…
