Election offered poor choices

With the election over, the DNC is on a crusade of political spin to distract people from why Hillary Clinton lost. The fact is Clinton is just more of the empty promises that we got from the Obama administration and how it governed to favor the already privileged. The Democrats and Republicans are both just as corrupted by private interests against the will of the people.

America didn’t really want Clinton or Trump, but because of malfeasance from the DNC, we didn’t get the populist that we wanted. The Republicans have a populist, albeit a hateful one, but the populist promises he spoke of garnered Trump enough support for a win when Clinton couldn’t get people to come out to vote for her.

Clinton relied upon the monstrosity of her opponent. She could have embraced Bernie Sander’s populism, which is what many citizens want now, not the usual neo-liberal rot.

If the media blames anyone but Clinton and the DNC for her loss, they are lying to you. People don’t want the corrupt, establishment-favoring policies that was Clinton and judging from what Trump’s cabinet will be, he’s no better. What poor choices we had available.
