As a followup to my last post, I want to share this post by Plain Ol’ Vic. I totally agree that this election is a culmination of the failure of the two party system, with NEITHER party having the best interests of the people as a priority–but rather, their own needs. Both parties are so out of touch with the needs and desires of the American people. Another reason the two party political system is so terrible is because both parties and their nominees are funded by the corporate elite, so the “little guy” (independent candidates) who speaks for the majority never has a chance. I think we need to switch to a parliamentarian system similar to what most of Europe has. Iknow that’s not perfect either, but it beats what we’ve wound up with.
Back in the days when the American people were more unified and homogenous, I suppose the two party system worked well. But today, with so much diversity and differing opinions on so many sensitive subjects, we need something else that can keep up with that.
Yes, I voted, but not for who I wanted. I voted for what I perceive to be the “lesser of two evils.” If I wasn’t so terrified of Trump winning, I would have cast a write in vote for Sanders instead.
With Hillary as president, we’ll just get more of the same, which means the descent into complete chaos and the polarization of this once-great country into a hellhole of the haves and have-nots will take a slower path. With Trump, we’ll get WWIII. So I voted for “more of the same.” Ugh–there should be a better option.
