With the Kaine Choice, Sanders Already Has Been Marginalized... and the Repubs Have Given Up
The Democrats now have two Corporatists in the top slots, Clinton and Kaine. The Sanders' contingent now is marginalized almost completely. I suspect that some, perhaps many or most, Democrats think that the supposed demise of the DLC---and the return of the DNC---as the Head Honcho of the Democratic Party meant that the Dem Corporatist days were over. The DNC may be running things, but the strategies, the policies, and the tactics are pure DLC...and, of course, Hillary and Bill were key figures in the DLC. The Corporatists and the War Hawks win again. C'est la vie.
The Republicans finalized their plans to split their Party and throw the November election. Let's see, who didn't even show up at the Convention?--- all three Bush Boys (perhaps Poppy Bush is incapacitated, I don't know), McCain, Kasich, Rand Paul, Rubio, Romney, Graham, Toomey, and a few others whose names escape me at the moment. So much for unity. The Republican Hierarchy has decided to give the election to Wall Street's number one choice---Hillary.
Barring any extreme unforeseen circumstances, the November election essentially is over. The Financial Sector and the War Hawks are the winners. About 99% of the rest of us are the losers. Even if by some miracle Trump & Pence win, the previous statements still stand. Don't vote at the national level in November, or if you must, vote for a worthy alternative to the Corporatists. There are several of them from which to choose...no matter what makes up your political beliefs.
Not only my opinion. Be Well
