Overwhelming Majority of Americans Believe that Both Parties Are Too Corrupt to Change Anything … “This, In Fact, Is A Revolution”

Why Americans Are Backing Trump and Sanders Over the Mainstream Candidates Backed By the Political Machines

We’ve previously noted that polls show that Americans are in a “pre-revolutionary” mood, that less than 1 in 5 Americans think that the government has the “consent of the governed”, that government corruption tops the list of Americans’ fears (gee, we wonder why), and that 3 times as many Americans supported King George during the Revolutionary War than support our OWN Congress today.

You might assume that such statements are over-the-top … or that the results come from partisan pollsters.

But a  group of Republican and Democratic pollsters and political strategists reviewed polling data last week, and revealed some stunning results:

  • 84% of all Americans believe political leaders are more interested in protecting their power and privilege than doing what is right
  • 81% percent believe the power of ordinary people to control our country is getting weaker every day as politicians of both parties fight to protect their own power and privilege
  • 80% believe the federal government is its own special interest primarily looking out for itself
  • 79% of all voters believe we need to recruit and support more candidates for office, at all levels of government, who are ordinary citizens, rather than professional politicians and lawyers
  • 78% believe that the Democratic and Republican Parties are essentially useless in changing anything, because both political parties are too beholden to special interests to create any meaningful change
  • 76% of Americans agree with the statement that America cannot succeed unless we take on and defeat the corruption and crony capitalism in our government
  • 75% believe that the US government is NOT working for the people’s best interest
  • 75% believe that powerful interests have used campaign and lobbying money to rig the system for themselves
  • 74% see the biased and slanted coverage of the media as part of the problem
  • 72% of Americans believe the U.S. has a two-track economy, where most Americans struggle every day, where good jobs are hard to find, and where huge corporations get all the rewards
  • 72% believe that the reason families in our middle class have not seen their economic condition improve for decades and economic growth is stalled is because of corruption and crony capitalism in Washington
  • 71% believe our government is not only dysfunctional, it is collapsing right before our eyes
  • 70% believe the government in Washington does not govern with the consent of the people
  • The majority – 56% – say they wish there were a third party with a chance of success to fight for their interests
  • Only 15% say the “values and principals of my political party are so important that I strongly prefer to vote for the candidates of my party…”

They concluded:

The country [is] in a prerevolutionary moment.

***

This election could mark the beginning of the end of two-party duopoly in the United States.

***

The people believe the real struggle for America is not between Democrats and Republicans, but between mainstream America and the ruling political elites of incumbent politicians, lobbyists, big business, big unions, big banks, big special interests and the big media. [The people are correct.]

***

The power elite asks, “When will this be over?” Although this is seen as a chaotic and temporary situation by most of the political and media establishment, our research shows a strong, evolving tidal wave of discontent and growing pressure for real and dramatic change.

***

Real change is what that the establishment fears most and fights hardest against. It is ultimately a losing battle.

***

This, in fact, is a revolution.

        Sticks and stones may break my bones

        Meaning: A response to an insult, implying that “You might be hurt able to hurt me by physical force but not by insults”.

        Origin: ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me’ is a stock response to verbal bullying in school playgrounds throughout the English-speaking world. It sounds a little antiquated these days and has no doubt been superseded by more streetwise comebacks.

        The earliest citation of it that I can find is from an American periodical with a largely black audience, The Christian Recorder, March 1862: Remember the old adage, ‘Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me’. True courage consists in doing what is right, despite the jeers and sneers of our companions. That reference to the expression as an ‘old adage’ in 1862 suggests and earlier coinage.

Trump’s problem is he does not understand the issues. Trump has learned that forceful statements are appreciated by voters. Therefore, he doesn’t differentiate intelligent forceful statements from insane statements. As long as his statements are forceful, Trump thinks that they work.

        I think my point was in regard to tipping points, the results suggest that with a fulcrum point of 75% – the mass required on the other side of the balance is beyond them.

        That is until those government checks stop coming. $21T in debt (when Obama leaves office) and that is only the funded liabilities. We are currently seeing the market unwind in front of our very eyes. We are living on borrowed time. The reason you don’t see any urgency at the federal level to deal with the debt is because it is mathematically impossible to pay it back. They know it and they are trying to cusion the fall. There is only so much they can do and once the well runs dry, which will be soon, relatively speaking (a year two maybe more if they continue printing money effectively for a little longer). The inner cities and areas with the most reliance on government for survival will start the civil unrest. In the end it will be many of us middle classers that will end it sand put it all back together again. We are fast approaching our very own Dec. 26, 1991 moment.

    Trump wants to bring back waterboarding by “reclassifying it”. I think that provides us with a lot of insight into his character. Want another Dick Cheney? Vote for Trump.

    • kimyo

      sanders doesn’t even remotely ‘get it’. while he fiddled about, 300,000 veterans died, waiting for healthcare. if he couldn’t see the obvious and horrific corruption going on in the v.a., why would anyone think his plans to audit the fed/dod are going to amount to anything?

      Faith in Agency Clouded Bernie Sanders’s V.A. Response

      But a review of his record in the job also shows that in a moment of crisis, his deep-seated faith in the fundamental goodness of government blinded him, at least at first, to a dangerous breakdown in the one corner of it he was supposed to police. Despite inspector general reports dating back a decade that documented a growing problem with wait times, Mr. Sanders, who had served on the committee for six years before he became its head, was quick to defend the agency and slow to aggressively question V.A. officials and demand accountability.

      IG report: 300,000 vets died while waiting for health care at VA

      More than 300,000 American military veterans likely died while waiting for health care — and nearly twice as many are still waiting — according to a new Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general report.

      But the findings would appear to confirm reports that first surfaced last year that many veterans died while awaiting care, as their applications got stuck in a system that the VA has struggled to overhaul. Some applications, the IG report says, go back nearly two decades.

        Most plebs that see “Green” party on the ballot don’t even know anything about the person, even in today’s easily accessible information on the Internet either at Home, on mobile, or a Library – and feel an overwhelming need to vote for a Democrat or Republican instead, because that is what is drilled into their heads day after day by the corrupt, establishment media.

        Time after time I see the same fallacies that prevent the two party system from collapsing, “But If I don’t vote for Dem/Pub, and vote Third Party, my vote is wasted.” “But Politician X is the lesser evil than Politician Y.”

      Trump is obviously a fascist.

      Web Tarpley on Trump: plus comment that explains briefly why Trump is a fascist:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xljtUWPEXMI
      Gustavo Molvert 1 week ago (edited)
      +NwoDispatcher I will explain it to you. He is a fascist because he is a soldier of big capital AGAINST the overall interest of the Nation state. He promotes racism, instead of national cohesion. Nationalism is a healthy doctrine, as long as it is moderate. Fascism is a reactionary movement deployed by the rich elite against the conquests and advance of working masses. It uses national symbols and myths (above all, myths, since fascists like to create a history of their country and the world wich is false). But its whole purpose is to rescue the collapsing capital structures of the wealthy, and doing it by stripping the low mass of their benefits and rights (increase working hours, reduce wages, etc.) In other words, the difference between fascism and nationalism is that the first is essentially a mercenary movement to serve wealthy oligarchs (especially financiers) and the second is a legitimate political movement born out of the nation state and the traditions and culture of the people of a given geographical area. One is a money making movement… the other is a manifestation of the psyche of the community. VERY BIG DIFFERENCE.

  • MyWikiDisQus

    I’m one of 320 million Americans of which 206 million are eligible to vote in America’s presidential election on November 8. I am only one person but I can personally stop these monsters in Washington, DC. cold. I can do it very easily without violence, without armed conflict, without performing Herculean feats of political hoopla
    or through the use of previously unknown secrets of spiritual incantation to command at my will.

    At first blush my one action will be criticized as insignificant, impractical to achieve any meaningful results and even condemned as laughable. But I am undeterred for I know the real power my act can accomplish if only others would do as I will do on that fateful day, that is those of us who know the congress, the presidency and the federal judiciary are completely and utterly corrupt and cannot be changed by conventional means.

    Gravity is said to be a weak force in nature and that is true. However in relation to a large massive body it keeps man grounded and spaceships from ascending into the heavens without the use of powerful chemical rockets to break free of earth’s gravitational pull. How easy is it though, for man to pick up his foot and put it down ahead of himself foot by foot, yard by yard, mile by mile until he walks across a great distance. He turns and looks back and says, “Look how far I’ve traveled, for I started with one small step.”

    One simple act is all I need to do to stop these evil men, to do my part to end the murder of innocent people who have never threatened me, my family, friends, neighbors and most likely have not harmed you as well for they do not know you as you do not know them, face to face. On that Tuesday when the polls open across our great country I will act. It will be swift yet appear not to be anything at all. Like gravity its real power can only be realized when it is part of a large mass. In this case a mass of people is needed to have the desired effect. Will you join me
    and become part of the mass to multiply the power to stop the killing wars? It won’t be hard to do, require any special skill, equipment, the expenditure of monies or even time. All you have to do is this one simple act:

    Don’t vote on November 8.

    That’s it, that’s all we have to do. I said it was simple and I was true to my word. No matter how powerful the government becomes they need our consent to legitimize their authority. Don’t give it to them. Let the
    system die an ignominious death. We will save the lives of countless Arabs, Persians, Russians as well as America’s youth if we shut off the elitist’s power. We accomplish this by not participating in the electoral system they abuse to continue their reign of terror around the planet. Like gravity weak to begin but grows exponentially in strength as more mass is added, so must we act by not acting, to save the world from Washington’s tyranny and despotism.

      on nov 8, we’ll need footage documenting empty polling stations from coast to coast to prove that the diebold counts are fiction.

      Voting one way or the other is simply giving your consent to the system. I don’t consent to anything they’re doing so I quit voting some years ago although I do vote in local “pocketbook issues” especially when those effect MY pocketbook. Otherwise voting accomplishes nothing whereas not voting says everything I want it to say. It’s not the act of voting that changes things. It’s the ones who count the votes that are changing things because like the economy this is a rigged system. And you participate to your own detriment because YOU sure ain’t going to…get ahead. Not the way these govt gangsters in DC are running things. They want your guns AND your cash and I’m betting they won’t get either…

Are own people on the streets yet we going to take in 250 k non vetted people and no resources we know how that’s going to work we have Europe as the perfect example. Thrid of our people are unemployed yeah 100k maybe building the wall it a good start to a New Deal. If the elite see someone they know trying to something to turn this nation around who has experience as a CEO who can building things and it can put thousands to work so those who want to be proud to be part of rebuilding this nation earning a paycheck rather than just sitting around waiting for welfare. Maybe other CEO,s willuse their resources. This could be the era of if you can’t do anything for your country stay out of Washington. That what the American people are saying this election.

        You wrote, “If you sit on the side line (sic) nothing will change.”

        I assume your meaning is that people should vote for Mr. Trump because he is a successful businessman and has the leadership qualities to turn the nation around. I would agree with you except for the fact he has not stated anything specific as to how he would accomplish the gargantuan task of putting America back to work, to return the country to the land of opportunity and not entitlement as it is today.

        Read his 5 step platform here (see: https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions ). He stated very clearly his support for the second amendment, change the tax code, revise immigration policy, international trade with China and reform the Veterans Administration, He talks about implementing a policy of fair trade verses free trade with China to reduce the advantage of the lower cost of labor which is the biggest expense to any business. China provides government export subsidies and has virtually no environmental or employee safety standards as well. But in order to make fair trade happen, he will have to create some sort of importation tax to force
        China to comply and that requires congressional approval. He also mentions reducing the corporate income tax rate which is good but high taxes are only one reason why Bill Clinton sold
        out the country via NAFTA. It was all the other regulatory compliance burdens of OSHA, EPA, HHS, etc. that motivated business to search for lower cost labor markets. Trump has said nothing about reigning in the agencies under his control and jobs will not return to American shores until he (if elected) gets Congress to reduce the cost of federal compliance.

        Trump has said nothing about laying a foundation for creating jobs to spur the national economy, nothing about reducing military spending (currently 600+ billion dollars), nothing about the federal cost of healthcare and education and nothing about the monopoly of the central banking system. All of these categories will require the U.S. Congress to pass legislation to enact reforms. If you know anything about how Congress works, you know the corrupt political parties will attach special provisions that serve their major campaign contributors, in other words, “political repayment”. That’s what is wrong with Washington, today. Even though Mr. Trump himself will not be obligated to any person or PAC because he is spending his personal wealth to campaign, it is the Congress that will use its power to thwart Trump’s plans if it conflicts with their own self-serving interests.

        The Office of the President of the United States has national authority over federal agencies under its branch of government but such control is limited and can’t usurp the Congress or the federal judiciary. When a scheme is devised such as issuing executive orders or signing statements to circumvent the U.S. Constitution as is often done, then nothing will change.

        The only way to restore the republic is to let Washington, DC collapse completely and start over without national political parties, without corporations being allowed to fund campaigns, etc. and reclaim the separation of powers as was envisioned by the Founding Fathers.

      That won’t work because you won’t get the critical mass necessary. I wish you could have gotten to the point more quickly, it was like reading a piece trying to sell health supplements, painful and boring, another reason you won’t get the followers you need.

      • MyWikiDisQus

        Mr. Gresham, what are you personally, going to do if I may ask? Vote for the “lesser of two evils” like so many other Americans who rush over the political cliff like a swarm of lemmings? What that accomplishes is to prolong the pain of a failed system of central government regardless of who is appointed or “elected” as the people foolishly believe..

        As far as being unable to persuade a significant number of the population to not vote as you wrote that’s true, as long as people don’t realize that disengagement is more powerful than participation which is what the elitists want the country to do.

        Participation = compliance = continuance of tyranny. Abstinence = a reset = a new government without the same entrenchment of established corruption. As I originally wrote, gravity is a weak force when the mass is small but very powerful when it is large. I and many others like myself choose to bring a peaceful end to the vileness of Washington, DC. Please consider joining the conscience movement to rebuild America from the ground up. Stay home on November 8, don’t grant your consent and legitimize a political system that no longer serves the people.

          The system didn’t fail; it was undermined by corruption and an ignorant populace working hand in hand. Thanks to public education. Thanks to people voting for laws that deprive people of natural rights. And, most of all, thanks to the huge scam of private law enforced by a private corporation designed to run in bankruptcy, namely “UNITED STATES”, and all its many corporate subsidiaries like STATE OF OKLAHEE, et cetera, against the corporate entities represented by the names of people in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, which, according to EVERY style manual for the English language, denotes a dead corporate entity, and possibly a trust. This government CANNOT interact with living men lawfully or legally; it cannot “see” them. If people had the attention span (and here I invoke as an example of the Mr. Gresham) to hold more than one idea in their head at a time, we could go back to the now vacant Constitutional government that the founders designed, and was stolen when its Congress was ended in 1860 when the representatives of the Southern States walked out, ending the quorem, and adjourning Congress sine die (meaning without a voted on day to re-convene) which, under their operational rules (They had chosen “Robert’s Rules of Order”.) dissolved that organization, and with it, the de jure (lawful) government. Lincoln then gave us a military government to operate in the state of emergency that he’d declared and have to this day. It’s only a de facto government, having all the basis in law of a conquering army. Meanwhile, the de jure government’s offices stand vacant and all the states abandoned their original government when they incorporate UNDER the PRIVATE CORPORATE government incorporated in 1871 called UNITED STATES, which is just the District of Columbia and has no constitutionally backed land outside that besides ports and forts. We don’t need a new government less than we need a stupid population. You cannot be both ignorant and free, and EVERYTHING written these days about America and its government these days SCREAMS that sad fact. All thanks to the manipulation of special interests of the public education system.

    It is encouraging to think that so many Americans may be beginning to wake up to the corrupt fraud that has replaced our constitutional government, partly by means of the ridiculous corrupt charade of “two party politics.” But recognizing this and finding a practical and effective way forward to restoring our democracy and creating an America that IS AMERICA for all of us, instead of a plutocracy for the 160,000 families that own a controling interest in our country of 330 million — THIS IS THE CHALLENGE THAT CONFRONTS US. Its solution demands adult reflection and knowledge of America’s history of efforts to solve this problem. Both are very hard to come by (not accidentally).

  • DebL.

    So if the American people want a revolution, why are they not starting one? What a load of crap! What the American people (you know, the “I-am-oppressed-so-should-you-be” and “I-pay-taxes-so-should-you” crowd!) really want is just a better dog-and-pony-show than the ones they’ve witnessed in previous elections. In fact, most Americans are too damned cowardly to resist even if they are being raped by TSA. Remember that some Oregon ranchers were seeing their cattle burned up by BLM and did NOTHING to save their animals because BLM told them to stand down…. Revolution? Don’t hold your breath waiting for the “3 percenters” like LaVoy Finicum to show up and be murdered…

    • Tom

      LaVoy Finicum was not a member of the III Percenters. He was specifically singled out for assassination from all the other people in the ambushed vehicles because he was considered the most dangerous of them all: He actually had considerable expertise in the Constitution and was calmly and peacefully doing all he could to teach others about it! The government was never worried about the guns these people had — nobody does violence as well as the government — but the teaching moment presented to all Americans by the Hammond Ranch affair scared the hell out of them. Teaching and truth can spread across the land much faster and more powerfully than any bullets — that’s why LaVoy Finicum had to be murdered.

        I agree. The American Revolution was mostly won by teachings. The *shot* heard around the world is a prime example.

          People who did wrong were loudly called on it.

          Now the 60s generation onwards know less and less of right and wrong and feel that due to evolution we will just evolve. We don’t need right and wrong. We will always evolve and do right.

          Today’s generation is totally braindead and run the big corporations today that is ruining everything.

          A revolution will fall apart and people will just kill each other leaving things wide open for a martial law take down.

          Unlike the American Revolution you will today have a dozen different factions/groups all fighting for their own agenda when the revolution happens.

          It will be a mess. Think Occupy Wall Street on steroids. It will just give TPTB the excuse they needed to fully enforce martial law where now we have martial law *lite* edition.

        You, as a ‘Voter’ are factually, disenfranchised…if the powers thought it would make any difference, voting would be outlawed.
        In closing…even the Chinese are ‘allowed’ to vote.

    Do folks really want a revolution or is it all just talk. Backing Trump and Sanders is no indication of a revolution. Sanders is part of the establishment, but they want the war criminal and murder clinton instead. Trump agenda may be similar to the cabal’s and could be allowed to hold office. Time will tell whether or not they will tolerate Trump. The president is selected by the cabal … not elected by the people. Wake up.

    Some revolution. Both of these guys are anything but revolutionary. They’re mainstream political candidates products of the establishment, who will bring you more of the same their predecessors brought you- war, torture, impoverishment, corruption, lies and tyranny

      February 21, 2013 Scorecard: How Many Rights Have Americans REALLY Lost? How Many Constitutional Freedoms Do We Still Have?

      Preface: While a lot of people talk about the loss of our Constitutional liberties, people usually speak in a vague, generalized manner … or focus on only one issue and ignore the rest. This post explains the liberties guaranteed in the Bill of Rights – the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution – and provides a scorecard on the extent of the loss of each right.

    Polls show that a majority of Americans say that both the Republicans and Democrats are doing such a poor job representing the people that a new, third party is needed.

    The gang in the Capitol jumped the shark when they put a gun to the taxpayer’s heads in 2008 and demanded billions “or else.” It was a wake-up call for anyone paying attention. Unfortunately, there are still the under educated masses in the US that believe whatever talking head that agrees with them or their preacher. Yes, we have greedy oligarchs running things and many felons inhabit Congress, but only the educated see that we’ve become the United States of Wall Street.

  • Americans don’t know what has happened to them. They can’t understand the disconnect from their elementary school education of American mythology — “I can’t tell a lie; Freedom of speech; Lincoln freed the slaves, etc.” and the reality they experience.

    Americans can’t explain their sentiment and no pundit has done so. I alone can show you why in graphic details:

    THE BIGGEST LIE ALMOST ALL AMERICANS BELIEVE: AMERICANS HAVE A REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY. BERNIE, HILLARY AND ALL OF THE CANDIDATES LOVE THE BIGGEST LIE.

    As well, Americans have been indoctrinated into false beliefs about themselves. This too has them experiencing cognitive dissonance.

    THE FOUNDERS OF THE USA WERE RADICALS. THEY WERE NEVER CONSERVATIVES NOR TRIBALISTS. AND YOU MIGHT BE A RESTORATIONIST BUT LIKELY YOU ARE NOT A CONSERVATIVE.

    And who owns these corporations? The 0.1% of Americans who own 28% of America, that’s who — 160,000 families, total, among 330 million. The same people who own “both” parties and the entire controlling core of American financial-corporate-industrial-commercial monopoly “enterprise.”

    All of these findings can surely be found to be objectively true. Recent studies showed that hardly any of the wishes of ordinary Americans feature in legislation passed, but lots which suits the top very rich and powerful. Look at the laws and their implementation, and see the people incarcerated and those swanning around giving speeches. Who has committed more crimes??

    We saw it back in Clinton era when they forced banks to give housing loans to people even if they have crappy jobs or in some cases NO jobs at all. If banks didn’t comply they would be sued which lead to the housing bubble.

    Traditionally it has been you had to have 30,000$ in down payments for a 30 year payment plan to get a house and even though we had steady jobs we only had to have 5,000$ for a small house as a down payment due to the new rules.

    The left media TOTALLY ignored it and the right wing media sometimes mentioned it but refused to really address it.
