All That Political Jazz

It strikes me that the Trump and Sanders movements are both fueled by the same sentiments, just manifesting themselves on different sides of the political spectrum:

  • The government is being run for the benefit of well-connected individuals.
  • The government is surely not being run for my benefit.
  • The other candidates have some severe flaws.
  • Dear God, not another Clinton or Bush!

    Personally, I agree with at least 3.5 of the statements above. (That would include all of the fourth one, just for reference.) I don't believe that either Trump or Sanders is the solution, but I certainly sympathize with people who have had quite enough of this, thank you very much...
