The ‘Two Party System’ is a terribly rigged system that help keep the political elite and ruling class in this modern oligarchy we call the United States in power. It has for the last 163 years at least. In fact the last president that wasn’t a Democrat or Republican was Millard Fillmore (1850-1853) who was a member of the Whig party. Control seems to switch back and forth at semi regular intervals but in the end we are stuck in a two party paradigm with no real light at the end of the tunnel.
Hillary Clinton is by far the most dishonest and corrupt politician we have seen in America, not to mention one of the most disliked. She has been in the public eye for decades and the public is sick of her. We have had plenty of time to see her true colors, the American people have had enough, and she knows it. After 8 years of a Democrat in office the winds of change are strong in America, we saw this in 2012 when the Republicans swept the house and senate. Hillary Clinton is not a stupid person, quite the contrary she is extremely intelligent, conniving and power hungry to boot and she sees the writing on the wall. If she is to capture what she believes is owed to her, the presidency, she has to do something drastic. Don’t get me wrong, she will lie, cheat and steal to get elected but that alone may not be enough to secure her place in history.
Understanding the power shifts that occur in this country and how the public opinion weighs on them can be a political advantage. Hillary knows she can never win the presidency on her merit, the only way for her to secure her legacy is to have a candidate on the other side that is more hated than her, but where do you find someone that the public hates more than Hillary? Up till now there really was no one in the political sphere that fit that bill, at least no one that would be willing to commit political suicide anyway. Instead she needed someone that was outside the political world, someone that was comfortable being in the spotlight but didn’t care if they shot themselves in the proverbial foot, politically speaking. Because no one that fits this mold exists in today’s America, someone would have to be manufactured. She would need someone who could say the most outrageous things ever and convince, at least a plurality of people, that they are not being trolled.
Enter Donald Trump, a boisterous, arrogant windbag that for some reason has gained popularity in recent months. As we move closer to November we start to see what a pompous ass Donald Trump truly is, but is that by design? Whether you know it or not, Trump and Clinton are friends and have been for years.
In fact Hillary Clinton sat front row at Donald Trump’s wedding in 2005.  According to state and federal disclosure records, while Hillary Clinton was a New York Senator both Trump and his son made donations to her in 2002, 2005, 2006 and 2007. Additionally Trump himself has donated at least $100,000 to the corrupt, money laundering scheme known as the Clinton Foundation.
Fortunately for her, and unfortunately for us Donald Trump is filling the role of ‘hated more than Hillary’ perfectly. He is used to being in the public eye, he is used to saying outrageous and ridiculous things on TV and he has no political career to speak of. When this is all over he will go back to being a New York elite millionaire and making annoying television reality shows. No harm no foul, except the country is now saddled with Hillary Clinton at the helm, for better or for worse… This strategy is playing out right in front of us and many people don’t even know, or are choosing to turn a blind eye to the obviousness of the situation. It has become more obvious in recent days with headlines like “Donald Trump Is the Gift to Hillary Clinton That Keeps On Giving”  or “Young voters flee Trump in what may be historic trouncing”. 
Every time Trump opens his mouth Hillary gets another convert. Many people, despite not liking Hillary Clinton, deciding to vote against Donald Trump because she is the perceived ‘lesser of two evils’ which is a terrible reason to vote for anyone. You shouldn’t be voting for any evil, and far too often in modern American politics we find ourselves holding our nose and pulling the handle for a candidate we don’t fully endorse be cause ‘we gotta stop the other guy’. We find ourselves far too often voting against someone instead of voting for someone, and I believe the 2016 election will be no different. Either way the American people are being led around by the nose, and the path unfortunately leads to corruption and loss of liberty for the rest of us that aren’t politically connected.
