Why Aren’t We Talking About a Four-Candidate Race for the Presidency: Two Party Hacks and Trump and Sanders as Independents?

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

The American public deserves the opportunity to vote for Sanders, Trump, and whatever hacks the two elitist war parties select.

If the Republican Party chooses a candidate other than Donald Trump at its convention, the possibility that Trump would declare a third-party/ independent candidacy is already mainstream. This would create a three-candidate race for the presidency in which the independent actually has a chance to win, given the monumental disgust of the voting public with the corrupt, elitist and profoundly venal parties.

So what’s to keep Bernie Sanders from declaring as an independent candidate for the presidency? While Sanders has mouthed the expected platitudes about supporting Democratic Party hack Hillary Clinton, his ardent supporters–who almost by definition have zero loyalty to the elitist, permanent-war-is-wonderful Democratic party–might insist Bernie hold true to his independent roots and run as an independent.

That this has never happened before doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen.Granted, the American system is rigged in favor of the two parties; independents would face major hurdles in getting on the ballot.

The American system has essentially no room for the will of the people: after the party machinery filters out everything but support for elites, vested interests, war and some hot-button social issues to distract the masses from their servitude, there is nothing left of the people’s will but a fetid trickle of raw sewage.

    They are 4 HACKS NOT 2.
    Even if all 4 candidates are “allowed” to run against one another, they’ve each been picked by the controllers of this country. So each of us believes our favorite candidate is different, the only one not manipulated by the controllers? Voting for Trump or Sanders is an “opportunity” to fall in the same trap voting for the controllers’ candidate. It makes no difference who runs or how many candidates run because the controllers run the vote count so they decide. It’s a proven fact American elections are manipulated and have been for years.

    None of these candidates will admit 9/11 was an inside job. So what we tell ourselves is that our favorite candidate knows it’s an inside job but won’t say anything until after he or she is elected. The same faulty logic got Obama elected – investing your vote in a lie yields a liar president. People so easily fall into the controllers trap every time, and they make it so obvious.

    Sounds to me that a Trump–Sanders independent ticket might scare the f**k out of the two party system. The scariest part is if Trump dies in office.
