Well, that rather depends on whether people can even drag themselves out of the confinement of mind that is a two party choice for long enough to
consider a third way. Even very smart people have trouble with this sometimes, unless they make a habit of never being confined by or confused by the
dipole madness of the whole situation.
The real problem is that Americans have been so thoroughly propagandised, that they believe that Hillary Clinton is the leftist option. They appear
to be so caught up in the flawed ideals behind their current system of government (no, not the government as the founding fathers thought of it, which
was a noble and grand idea, but the moronic, over simplified, obfuscatory clusterbang that it is today), that they conflate "more left than the
alternative" with "actually left". The two things are not the same thing at all, and if folk realised that you a person can be left wing, own a gun,
be proud of their nation, and still hate the living bejesus out of the power weilded over them by its leadership enough to make positive differences
to the way things are done, the lies that are told them by genocidal supremacists in their government and intelligence infrastructure being a prime
A more left wing government would have such oversight involved with it that the intelligence community could not FART without the people being aware
of it and able to step in to defend their rights. But because the left are looked at by many as pariah because of the false notion that going any
further left than Clinton is equal to Stalinist communism, that approachable, accountable, obedient government, the servant government rather than the
masterful one, does not seem likely to come about. Whose fault is that?
Well, an awful lot of money is spent in an awful lot of places, to ensure this false view of the left wing is maintained, but ultimately it is the
fault of the weak minded. Accepting any programming you did not give yourself is always an error, because it leaves you open to being controlled, to
having your life used for ends you will never understand or even be able to grasp at the edges of. It may be time for America to throw off its
programming, because if it's people remain as cussed and determined to hold to the right (including so called moderately left groups like the
Democrats, who are in fact more right wing than would be healthy for the people of their country) as they have been, the result will always be less
power for the individual, less oversight by the people of the structures which are erected to support them and protect them, and more extension of the
corporate take over of their nation from under them.
That's how I see it anyway.
