3. I like her ideas...

 

and we could TRY something workable and different because what we have now is clearly working well only for vested interests and those who have. They have been having a "great economy" and we hear about it booming in the Two Americas, (remember that?)

My concern for any candidate who does win the Presidency with a platform that finally bucks the system, (and I mean that in contrast to the trumpian debacle) is the MIC. Oh, it never went away, but you rarely here the term used anymore. The Military Industrial Complex is about acquiring and holding enough of our total economic and other forms of resources to capture and retain power over the entire system. This is not a conspiracy "theory", it is just a rather clandestine machine that functions as a collaborative, vested interest that works above and even beyond our surface politics and economy.

When you do some research into it, not only is it clear, but it even makes sense in regards to the overall goals and effects we see. Where there is a surface or superficial view, there is also an underlying depth.

What will be interesting then is the dynamic, considering what's at stake and the ruthless, play for keeps that that inspires, is how much push will come to shove should we get a candidate in office who is actually for the people and not in the faux and trumpian, dictatorial, populist sense.

Note: I look forward to the word trumpian to become a dictionary word. I have some definitions in mind already, but it should have several, all derogatory, of course. Just getting the ball rolling. Coin it, use it.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
