In America today, our democracy has lost all credibility.
In 2004, for example, more people voted for Al Gore than for G.W. Bush, yet Bush still became president. A link to that info can be found on another site of mine.
On my other blog, bnibley.blogspot.com, I explained in a recent post how Hillary Clinton has already won the 2016 Presidential Election by default. She has won due to the way the electoral college system functions. No other outcome appears to be possible.
All that aside, there remains little difference between any candidate in either of the two major parties. Yes, they all talk nice, depending on who you worship and admire. Yet in the end, does anyone expect that a Republican or Democrat will enact change that previous R & D’s have not?
The climate has turned ripe for the burgeoning of new political movements. Look at Europe, for example. Populist parties have become very, well… popular. They propose breaks from established traditions that have led entire populations into stagnation, poverty, despair. This resonates with people who find themselves coping with such a reality.
Likewise, the rise of “outsider” candidates (funny, considering anyone within the two major parties cannot be an outsider) in America reflects similar frustrations. In America, the only legitimate third-party option today remains the Libertarians. John Mcafee, creator of Mcafee anti-virus software, will be their candidate for this year’s election.
In the near-future, other parties will rise to legitimacy. Among them include Twelve Visions Party, one which proposes a new paradigm of government altogether – one that pushes government into the marketplace, thereby eliminating its coercive power through initiatory force. The free-market competition created by such a political paradigm will drive prices down in an instant, through rapidly advancing new technology, raising standards of living for all.
No matter one’s political orientation, it seems clear that a break from tradition will be in the cards in the new future. And as of the last few decades, a distinctive trend of totalitarianism, social, and tyranny has taken hold of American politics. Many have become aware of this, and outraged.
Soon opportunities will prevent themselves to alter the established power structure. The establishment understands this, and continues to wreak havoc around the world in one last futile attempt to maintain control. They will ultimately fail.
