I was being sarcastic, of course he's like the others. No candidate with any chance to win is on the ballot unless they are 100% on board with the elite agenda. The first hurdle is amassing millions of dollars with which to compete, the second is gaining support of the very people you're standing in opposition to, getting media coverage, getting on State ballots. No, it is fixed in dozens of ways to filter any serious threat to the organism. This is an oligarchy, a Triple-Amazon river of cash is driving the Empire. If some miracle were to happen and a true independent populist gained sufficient support and threatened to win the vote (it would need to be an "unfixable" landslide), he/she would simply be removed. There would not be one second of hesitation on this, it is serious business.
Obama was so charismatic and such a bright spot that almost everyone I know was full of hope for real change. I hated to be the wet blanket, but I've been saying this for decades and never miss a chance to remind everyone that they're repeating the same actions expecting a different result. It's like that Star Trek episode where they keep making the seemingly rational choice only to be sent back in time to repeat the same drama over and over and over. War, Health, Environment, Israel, Education, Taxes...not a single policy of significance is being done with popular support. (for decades)
