For a brief moment, it appeared that the Sanders' so-called "Revolution" was the Democratic Party's antidote to Trump's Anti-Establishment Movement.  Without explaining to his followers why they must now vote for someone he had criticized as unworthy of their party's nomination, Sanders simply contradicted himself in broad daylight (or rather under the limelight of the Democratic Party Convention) and asked his supporters to vote for Clinton.  "Shocked" would be too mild a word to describe the confusion amongst his most devoted followers.  

The fact that the Establishment media does not mention the silent defection of the Anti-Establishment crowd from Sanders' to Trump's campaign shows how serious this is.

Despite a dearth of billionaire donors, Trump raised as much money as Clinton in July.  This speaks tomes about the sheer NUMBER of small donors now flocking to his campaign.  The game has just begun.

A quiet revolution is under way.... the public has at long last caught on to the theatre played by the elite. It was inevitable that even those stupid Muricans would one day wake up to reality. Sanders has proved himself to be part of that same establishment that he feigned to protest against.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

WHILE THE DIRTY DOZEN OF MAINSTREAM MEDIA CAST TRUMP AS A THREAT, THE MAJORITY OF THE VOTERS BACK UP HIS DARING TO REJECT ANOTHER PC FARCE.

Quite an astute observation of a classic example of what they call "the controlled opposition".  When a true opposition arises, they call it every bad -ism they could think of.  

Does every parent of every soldier who died for America have the right to demand that all their kinsfolk from their country of origin be allowed to immigrate without proper screening, as otherwise their son would not have served their country and sacrificed their lives?  During WWII, did the US allow immigrants from Germany and Japan to enter without extra precautions, simply because many war heroes' parents or grandparents were from Germany or Japan?  Should it not?   

Is there a new right to interpret the US constitution as one sees fit, without being appointed to the SC?  Most American families with sons who died for their country will show more respect for their constitution than what the American public are treated to at the DNC, where the constitution their sons and daughters died to protect can be lightly interpreted to mean unrestricted immigration of some of whom they sacrificed to keep away from their homes.  

We should honor those who sacrificed their lives for their country.  But to make their sacrifices meaningful, we should also respect the country's constitution through due process of thoughtful deliberation for which they sacrificed their lives.

While the Establishment mouthpieces dominate the Internet and cable news, with practically 95% domination of the press and airwaves, all denouncing or insulting Mr. Trump, day in and day out, ceaselessly, they themselves admit that the gap of popularity between Clinton and Trump is no more than a 10% difference, i.e., if the press reflected the public opinion, one should expect 55% of articles to favor Clinton and disfavor Trump, and 45% the other way around.  Instead, you see or read 95% of the news articles out there are Anti-Trump.  

Let us apply a simple test of proportions, with the question, what is the probability by chance that a population support for Trump of 45% should be reflected in the mainstream media as a mere 5% support, at a 0.05 level of significance?  Welll, it is practically ZERO.  In short, the mainstream media does not reflect the public opinion at a 0.05 level of significance.

If so, isn't this a RIGGED election, when one candidate is selectively being attacked by 95% of the media outlets, when in the actual population, only 55% at most would disapprove of his candidacy?

Of course, it is rigged.

"... a quiet revolution..."? Did you write "a quiet..."???

Well I hope it does not get much louder.... but as long as it is only words and screams... it's OK.
