How to Protect the Two Party System

How to Protect the Two Party System

Step 1 ~ Run as an anti-establishment candidate in a meaningless primary against a shoe-in establishment candidate in a broken two party system.

Step 2 ~ Rally anti-establishment voters, especially the young and not yet jaded. (Not jaded but still anti-establishment? Yup.)

Step 3 ~ Endorse establishment candidate.

Bonus Tip: Run making your focus issue one that has very little affect on actual poor people who cannot afford to donate to campaigns, such as health care costs. (Poor people already get free medicaid, but are hurt by the fact they do have to pay taxes.) It helps if this is an issue that matters to labor unions–a labor union being just another type of corporation and source of vast campaign contributions.

There’s nothing new about promising #hope and #change. They promise to give you what you want so you don’t go looking elsewhere for it and actually get it.

Voting Democrat or Republican is partisan foolishness, in my opinion. There are no anti-establishment Democrats. The problem isn’t half of partisans; the problem is everyone and the whole system.

Disagree? Totally fine. I respect your opinion. Please leave a comment. Give me some food for thought. I’m hungry for it. 🙂

In any case, I’m calling it now: Bernie Sanders will endorse Hillary Clinton. Sanders is the gateway drug to Clinton.

  1. I think you are right the whole system is very broken and they spend so much time piting everyone against each other. Everyone is so distracted by what party they vote for and what candidate fits their ideal that they don’t see the bigger picture. None of the candidates are really looking out for us and what is best for everyone as a whole. At the end of the day it is like giving a starving person a piece of bread, they have eaten but they are still starving. The whole thing is very sad, to be honest. I also agree that Bernie is Hilary’s scapegoat. Which makes me even less of a fan of her’s.
