I believe that historians will look back at 2016 as the year that the Republic died. This year the FBI and Attorney General showed the hypocrisy of not prosecuting gross mishandling of sensitive information by not prosecuting Hillary Clinton.
But also the Democratic party destroyed the two party system by having so many voters cross over in states with open primaries to give the Democrats the perfect Republican opponent for Hillary to run against, Donald Trump.
The naked truth is that politics in the US are no longer democratic, but oligarchic. And the common people aren’t part of the oligarchy, which has given itself different rules to play by than the rest of the little people.
Russia isn’t even really trying to influence the election by releasing DNC internal emails, they are just exposing the hypocrisy of Western governance and laughing as the world turns their attention away from Ukraine and Syria.
We had a good run, didn’t we?
