The die is cast for the 2020 election. Democratic Party sheepdogs like Sanders can offer up all the usual platitudes and they’ll have exactly the same impact they’ve had before - none of real consequence. Bottom line - neither party is genuinely interested in providing or even trying for responsible government, even with November looming and the huge issues hanging in the balance, for that would mean acting meaningfully on behalf of the people in their time of crisis. Not a chance. Both parties are dug in for the duration, fully committed to their respective sellouts. The Republicans are committed to their despicable and destructive policy because they are corrupt and bat-shit crazy. The Democrats are committed to their despicable, do nothing policy because they are corrupt and only interested in maintaining their status quo of serving big money at the expense of the rest of America.
Killer pandemic, looming economic depression, planet destroying climate change, never ending war, rampant political corruption, obscene income inequality, ever-growing housing crisis and more, and neither party genuinely gives a damn who’s hurt, as long as the wealthy and the big corporations get more. And, of course, they keep their phony baloney jobs.
Those who can’t see the truth of all that just don’t want to know the truth. If we don’t find a way to effectively oppose the duopoly, the promise of the American dream is over for the large majority of us. Let’s say that again. If we don’t find a way to effectively oppose the duopoly, the promise of the American dream is over. And the key word, there, is “effectively”. The only way to effectively oppose these two irrevocably corrupted political parties is with another political party, one genuinely committed to serving the masses and that has its representatives placed in the legislative bodies of the nation.
There’s one and only one way to achieve political and social justice for the masses today, given the extent of corruption in our government. And that is by the wielding of raw political power, that is, the use of the vote by our representatives, in the legislatures of the nation. There can be no other way. That’s been proven over and over by the duopoly. And it will never be achieved though the inconsequential ramblings of the men and women posing as progressives within the corrupt Democratic Party. Proving that truth is the one and only thing Bernie Sanders has accomplished with his faux campaigns for the presidency.
