Could It Be That Both Parties Are Doomed?



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

Thanks to Donald Trump, the GOP is no longer that of the Establishment—and they admit it!

From Politico, “Neither of the two Republican former presidents voted for Mr. Trump — the father voted for Hillary Clinton and the son voted for ‘none of the above,’ as he told Mr. Updegrove. Indeed, at one point during the 2016 presidential campaign, the younger Mr. Bush confided to the author, ‘I’m worried that I will be the last Republican president.’ “

Bernie Sanders, now with the honesty of Donna Brazille, has killed off the Clinton owned and operated political operation called the “Democratic National Committee”. Democrat leaders Pelosi and Schumer no longer pretend to hold office to govern, but in their own words, “to resist”.  Political parties in the U.S. are legal fictions for the movement of money, not for policy or protecting citizens.  The Democrat and Republican Party, the official parties, are about special interests and protecting the Deep State and the Establishment. When you have one President Bush admit to voting for Clinton and the other admitting to vote for “none of the above, when you have Brazille expose the SALE of the DNC—political parties are dead.

“It’s widely known that Barack Obama left the Democratic Party in shambles. On his watch, the party lost more than 1,000 elective offices at the federal, state and local level. One underreported reason for this is that Obama opted to create a parallel institution out of his 2012 campaign outfit, Organizing for America. The renamed Organizing for Action siphoned money and the president’s energies from the DNC.”  Even Obama has no use for the DNC—he used it, abused it, then threw it aside.

“But the important point is that dysfunction isn’t zero-sum. Right now, the best argument Republicans have is “we’re not Democrats,” and the best argument Democrats have is “we’re not Republicans.” Like two punch-drunk pugilists leaning on each other in the 12th round, if one falls, the other may well fall too.

Everywhere else in America today, disrupters — Uber, Amazon, etc. — are dismantling established institutions. Perhaps both political parties are the next institutions to crumble under creative destruction. Or maybe not. But if it happens, no one can say they didn’t have it coming.”

Principles over Party?

    We have so many “Decline to state” registrants; it makes you wonder if people are figuring out that the parties are serving only the party and could care less about the people.

    As we know them now, my guess is that you will see a new republican and democrat party. Will it be more towards the “new world order” or return to a Constitutional Republic, is the question.
