‘Most Americans dislike both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

But due to the corporate media, the two-sided one political class party, and the marginalization of third party (actually second party) candidates, the lesser of two evils paradigm rules.

Both favor endless war and the dominance of the corporate-bankster economic system, albeit with stylistic differences.’
