When the people are ignored, and the media, establishment, specialist interests and career politicians set the tone for things unrelated to “the will of people” it’s going to cause problems. And the citizens of this country have been ignored for a very long time. So their way of making a political statement, is by voting for someone like Trump in the primaries or Bernie Sanders. It’s their way of letting their voices be heard, whether it’s through protesting or voting for someone that shares their outrage, disgust, views or concerns. It might look bad and as much as someone may disagree with Trump, Sanders, Cruz or Hillary. It’s good, and healthy for the country and needs to take place. Our country was founded on three parties, I would like to have no parties, but a third party isn’t the alternative, it’s the solution to Washington and Party gridlock. But a third party isn’t going to spring up overnight. Plus, Kasich has been a Republican for far too long and people are loyal to the tarnished conservative / republican brand. I don’t see him disavowing the party to start a new, independent one. But then again it seems like anything goes this campaign cycle, so what do I know.
