Trump is just the symptom, not the problem.
Trump did not create the discontent out there.

And efforts to dismiss Trump supporters as entirely racist mouth-breathing bigots are misguided.

I fear Hillary having won over Bernie will ignore as best she can that side. Also a mistake.

There is a huge multi-generational base either already screwed over, or anticipating being screwed over out there. Ignoring the headline dogwhistles they are both essentially saying the same thing: the system is not serving us.

If the System wishes to continue, they better listen.

Trump is fanning the flames.

I’m going back to basics. We need the monied interests out of the Beltway. Tout de suite.

But that isn’t happening.

So that leaves putting the fear of pitchforks in ‘em.

Seriously, if the headshed doesn’t waken before 2016 we’ll either end up with Trump plus or someone (Joe Hill?) the Trump and Bernie supporters can agree on.

Discontent has barely flexed muscle yet.
