No Republicans and Democrats

In the movie, “The Shooter,” a corrupt United States Senator Charles Meachum, played wonderfully by Ned Beatty, has a soliloquy in which he says, “there are no sides; there’s no Sunnis or Shiites; no Republicans and Democrats; there’s only haves and have nots.”

Recent revelations that big money Republicans are now backing Hillary Clinton shows the truth of the senator’s comments. Bernie Sanders understood that a political revolution is necessary to address the inequalities in our country. Regardless of whether or not you “like” Donald Trump, he also proposes drastic changes. Neither are acceptable to the elite investor class for whom status quo provides the stability for them to continue exploiting the world.

For them, the Clintons themselves members of the elite investor class, are the only acceptable candidates.
