We have had major issues in this country for at least the past five decades. Globalization, endless wars of empire, the full takeover of our government and airwaves by corporate interests, the decline in workers rights and labor unions, deregulation, environmental degradation, the destruction of civic society, stagnant wages, the decline in our standard of living, exploding medical costs, and the decimation of American education are what elected Trump.
Trump is a symptom of a broken economic and political system. Merely replacing trump with another corporate public relations crafted politician will not solve the any of the above stated issues, the issues that allowed Trump to be elected. Until we solve the systemic problems with our society, country, and government, we will be doomed to a fate even worse than Trump. Because the next right wing phony populist will most likely be intelligent, crafty, charismatic, and lethal for our country. Think of a charming version of Trump who is eloquent and knows how to operate the political machinery, that’s who we get next if we don’t fix the underlying problems.
