Mr. Daley raises a very significant issue but few are addressing it. In the recent past, after hearing him interviewed on NPR, I posted the link to an article relating the findings of his book on this subject.
For years I have debated the posters who push the idea that America's problems are the voters' fault. However, what represents the public's vote is mostly manipulated with all sorts of graft and various elaborate forms of fraud.
The way Republicans have redrawn voting districts gives them an unfair share of the votes along with the power and influence to set policy.
So while the old white guys' club is busy redesigning the voting districts to give themselves undue, unfair (should be illegal!) advantages, on the Dem. side of the aisle, quite a few preliminary vote counts and vote contests have also relied upon graft and corruption to ensure that Mrs. Clinton would be "the choice."
When I lived in Singapore in 2004, quite loudly (at a vegetarian café) I mocked the idea of that nation's elections. After all, they only had ONE candidate! People looked at me with horror--as if it was the self-evident truth that need never be uttered.
However, when (as is the case in the U.S.) both candidates MUST show homage to the MIC (War Department) and Big Capital (the corporate oligarchic plunderers), the net effect is precisely the same thing.
In real time citizens are witnessing just how far The Powers will go to eliminate any TRUE opponents of the status quo.
C.D. has an article about Jeremy Corbyn and his pie-in-the-sky policies. These have as much chance being put into law as does the agenda initially espoused by Bernie Sanders (or Jill Stein).
There is a difference between what is aspirational and what is likely.
My bet is on full systems' collapse... after the carcass falls, THEN comes the opportune moment for a new template to be set, and a new paradigm to come into being.
