What I have learned from spending an evening in a room filled and evenly shared by supporters of Trump and Sanders is that there is a consensus between the two. The bulk of the new blood in this year's campaign for President is motivated by people saying what they honestly believe, over the pandering of those who merely say things to curry the favor of a reluctant electorate.
There is a revolt against the puppet show that the masters behind the curtains must fear. Our political system is corrupted by big money. It does not serve the vast majority. Its vanguard is an endless stream of politicians who take money to spread their hollow words far and wide in exchange for influence that renders whatever they promise the rest of us irrelevant. The quid pro quo is thinly veiled. The people are registering their discontent.
