Letter to the Editor: Blame the Two Political Parties

Popular political movements on both left (Sanders) and right (Trump) are totally understandable. To call Trump a fascist is misplaced. Fascism, defined by Mussolini, a real fascist, is corporatism, a collusion between the corporate-financial world and government. The binding factor is money.

It has bought the government with big bucks and, in turn, has received any favors it wants.

The masses have been totally sidelined, yes deliberately, making even voting difficult, and the masses are not happy with their lot.

Sanders would like to bring back democracy, whereas Trump promises singlehandedly to make the discouraged and dissatisfied strong again.

If you want to talk fascism, let’s place the blame where it belongs. The existing political parties, both Democratic and Republican, along with those who have financed them, are the true culprits. We have met the enemy who is unwilling to face up to their role in this current political mess, and it is definitely not the people of this country.
