A long good analysis of what has happened in the US of A. Trump beat both Clintons, and both parties.
The political gamble that will be the Trump presidency traces back to the desperation of Americans who lost out in the social experiment of neoliberalism — and the Democrats’ candidate who personified those economic inequities, says Greg Maybury.
Whether on broad economic, social, national security, or foreign policy issues, both parties have demonstrated a recidivistic, palpable indifference to the concerns and needs of average working- and middle-class Americans, with both repeatedly showing themselves prone to elitism, corruption, cronyism, manipulation, greed, deception, bribery, hypocrisy, opportunism, self-interest, contempt, cynicism and arrogance.
Phi Beta Iota: Trump still does not “get” that he is a 27% “fringe” president who must take urgent radical measures to unite the country by demonstrating — tangibly — to the 73% who did not vote for him, that he is unrigging the system, reconnecting Members of Congress to the Constituents, and beginning the process of establishing evidence-based governance focused on the peace and prosperity of the 99%. An Electoral Reform Act — a Unity Act — combined with a public Grand Strategy Summit that is the ultimate Reality Show — and a diversification of the presidential appointee process to include candidates from all parties as well as Independents, will lock him in and teflonize him….if he can hear.
