This is crazy. So earlier this weekend Donald Trumps supporters have gotten rowdy. Now we have Bernie Sanders supporters going in and disrupting Trump rallies. We have Trump shooting back that he’s going to send his supporters into Bernie’s rally!
You know what this is don’t you? This is the age old argument of the modern world. Socialism Vs. Right-wing National Socialists. It’s so classic. This could be straight out of 1920! What a thrill this election is.
You know what neither party is arguing for right? So called ‘Free Trade Economics’ – what you have in both popular movements a realization that the old system is rotten to a core and has to go. These movements have begun, and even if Hillary Clinton manages to somehow get the vote this selection (which I argue isn’t going to happen) then these two movements have already been born.
I don’t mean to down play this election, but the long term view of this is a whole new political affront. To me, what has already occurred, and what will further cement, is the death of the Two Party System. Because now besides all the old issues, there are new issues: trade policies. This has already divided the parties so that there are essentially four parties running right now.
The elite have bled the country too much, and now the revolt begin. There are things both Trump supporters and Socialists agree on, our trade policies are running this country to the ground and this revolt needs to begin. Alas, it has begun. Let us hope it will stay within the political realm and not spill over into actual violence. Im guessing it won’t. The oligarchs will choose to remain quiet and plot their come back.. Let’s hope. We will all find out together.
