43. fortunately it is 47 years later

and the political landscape has changed quite a bit. In 1972, the country was still riding on the good policies of the New Deal, banking regulations, money didn't equal speech.

Now after 5 decades of bad supreme court decisions that opened the floodgates for corporate takeover of our government, unregulated fraud legalized in the financial sector, and environmental blight creeping back from the gutting of our environmental protections, the public is quite literally crying out for a change, and a return to FDR-like policies that made our country a better place to live, work, raise a family, and die.
