Thanks for the response, agreed establishment politics is folding fast. For me, the face of establishment politics is B. Clinton and the lifetime politician approach.

Berny is a wolf in sheep's clothing, he is a lifetime politician who is just mimicking the Trump extremism by promising socialist populism.

If Sanders does what he says he will do I will more than gladly feel the Bern, but if he does nothing and we get burnt, then I will be upset.



And I won't blame you for being upset.

But just remember, this is not up to Bernie, it's up to us and it's us who are to blame if we don't get it done.

Bernie is just the one willing to carry the torch, without our continued involvement that torch will burn out, regardless of who is in office.

None of them can do what they say they will without our demanding it every step of the way.

It's going to take a sustained political revolution.

Trump because he is actually a super liberal narcissist

Might as well be. We have had one of those in office for 7 years. Why not another round ?

Well if you want to go down that road…

Bush vs Clinton?

Bush. At least he's not as psychotic. He's also fairly progressive for a Republican.


If there aren't riots in the street when we end up with a Clinton vs bush primary then all hope is lost for America.

I know, it'll be epic for sure.

Meanwhile in NYC, birds are chirping, lattes are being sipped and viewing Picasso sculptures at Gagosian makes for a nice extended lunch break...

I guess we both agree that a political revolution will come from the people, not a presidential candidate.

The question is are the people ready to deal with tough political ideas, or is this really just a bunch of talk and no action?

Are we free thinkers, or are Americans just a nation of Marco-bots ready to say whatever 25-second phrase that sounds fancy?

I hope we are ready for the future.

Old man Bush is losing all his pull as his generation dies off, the likelihood he can move to have his other son shoot past a front runner(Trump) is small, although it be a possibility.

I think both parties are toast and good riddance. They are both corrupt as hell. How bout no parties? How about just real people running for office?
