This election isn’t bringing out the best in politics. It appears trolls are taking over the planet. Some are warning about the “Trump Apocalypse”; some are marching with banners saying “Putin & Trump will save the world.” Some are beating the drums furiously for Clinton, certain she will usher in an era of annihilation in Syria under the banner of a No Fly Zone.

Such credulity makes fools of the most credentialed. When we wake up in January after Clinton or Trump takes office, the same think tanks, special advisors, generals, CIA officials, bankers, & corporate chiefs will be determining US policies. The US capitalist system is a massive, complicated enterprise & those who run & own it don’t take chances on who administers it for them & don’t take orders from the president.
