last selection show just how much the Democrats are out of touch with the people of this country. The anointing of Hillary Clinton by means of subterfuge and dirty tricks against the Bernie Sanders campaign made most young people in this country just walk away from the election.

The reason Donald Trump won the election is because people are just fed up their government and its practices. They are tired of the wealth going to the top 1% and they tired of corporations extracting wealth in this country like it was some sort of piggy bank. People are tired of working two jobs just to get by and living on minimum wage.

Donald Trump seized on this issue by declaring he would " make America great again ". He also used race to sway many people who were secretly racist. Again I want to stress to the Democratic Party that they lost this election because they alienated the middle class and also the millennial's. Not only did they lose the millennial's they also lost my vote and I'm 66 years old. Progressives do not want a corporate candidate like Hillary Clinton. The American people know what the Clintons were all about and they've known this for years. Why they put such a failed candidate with such low approval numbers up for election was acatastrophic for the Democratic Party.

It would've been nice to see progressives vote for Jill Stein but they didn't because they think is we only two parties you can vote for. They say voting for a third-party is a protest vote. While it is a protest vote as long as people think this way.

I've been r writing for years about this two-party system. I think people are waking up to the fact that the Republicans and the Democrats don't represent the average working person. This is a dangerous time because in the future I predict that Donald Trump through the things he will do will alienate all the people voted for change in the Republican Party. They will see the same type of corporatism and the same type of pay for play and putting lobbyists in the cabinet and all the other things that Americans are sick of seeing.

The American people are really pretty angry at the present system. I also wrote that discontent is cumulative, unless people's needs are met people only become more discontented and eventually that discontentment will lead to revolution. I know nobody likes to talk about but this, but when the people see the wealth being extracted from the middle class getting poor, and it's harder to make ends meet, people will not react well. The neo-liberal policies that are being practiced by corporations extracting wealth in this nation needs to stop.

One case in point is Walmart. They pay their people such low wages and key people part-time employees so they don't have to pay them benefits. These same workers are then brcome eligible for food stamps and Medicaid because are not making enough money and they are classified as poor. Now, who ends up paying for these benefits that we have to give to the workers of the richest family in America? We the American taxpayer end up subsidizing Walmart when the one of the largest biggest corporations in United States because this is why this politicians want it. Thier donor money is tirt biggest concern.

So goodbye Hillary it's been good to know you but I'm glad you're gone. You ruined a perfect opportunity to change his country from a corporatist oligarchy to a populace run country and you should be ashamed of yourself. I was glad when you lost.
