The Oligarchy doesn't care who wins the presidency as long as it is a Republican or Clinton...

The American Oligarchy Establishment simply want to rule all of America. With a republican or Clinton as president, their goals will be fulfilled.

Taking control over America is a process that takes time. It started with President Bill Clinton. Yes he did a few good things, but he also set up America for the Oligarchy. NAFTA, repealing Glass-Steagal, and the telecommunications act were kingpins to ending the American democracy.

Then the Supreme Court appointed G.W. Bush and we all know what happened. Obama, like Bill Clinton, did a few good things, but carried on the goals of the Oligarchy as well.

This election is the pivot point where we go from our democracy to full on oligarchy. It will still take a few years to accomplish, but the course has been laid and it's full speed ahead for them. Consider what happens if/when the TPP passes...

A relatively few people want to rule America and they want to dictate what American pleb and middleclass (what remains) can and cannot have. And they are not on the side of 99% of Americans.

We have a chance, America, to stop them in their tracks and it will come in the form of a statesperson that is a President Sanders along with millions of people demanding that the people's agenda be enacted.

Good luck everyone, this might be our last chance.

1. Yep. Those Oligarchs know how to cover their bets: heads they win, tails we lose.

 

All one needs to do is follow the money, as usual.

6. No, they very much want a Clinton.

If a Republican tries to, say, kill Social Security, they will face lock-step opposition from the Democrats and some opposition from Republicans. And it goes nowhere.

If a Democrat tries to do that, they face split opposition from Democrats, and lock-step support from Republicans.

To dismantle the New Deal and similar programs, they need a Republican Congress, and a Democrat in the White House who will support it with false claims (ie. "Dignity of Work".

7. Yes, you are absolutely correct...

 

This is exactly why we need someone like Senator Sanders as President.

Thank you for your keen insight.
