Nothing surprising in the Presidential debates.

I cannot believe why anyone would be surprised at how retrograde and awful the American Presidential debates are. What are people expecting? Do they they think that these two shills for the oligarchy will suddenly say “I will bring to justice the bankers responsible for the financial meltdown. ” or ” I will make sure that military spending is cut by half across the board” or “I promise that I will actually be interested in doing something for people with a net worth less than $100,000”. or “I guarantee that just as many white folks will go to jail as black, brown and red folks.” or “I will make sure that the medical system will not bankrupt anyone unlucky enough to get sick.” Get a grip. These candidates are of the same class and have been bought and paid for by corporations. They are not interested in anything democratic because there is no democracy. They and their ilk have made sure that there will never be democracy except in name for the naive.
