The BREXIT surprise resulted from a broken political system burdened by an austerity driven, neoliberal, economic system under the EU that drove angry voters to the polls.
Is this a precursor for a surprise in the US presidential election? Aren’t American voters likewise burdened with a broken, dysfunctional, political system that can’t fix the injustices caused by extreme economic, social, racial, and environmental inequality? Aren’t they being subjected to the same austerity driven, neoliberal, economic solutions pushed by the same corporate leaders who drive the EU economic system and the trade agreements like TPP and TTIP? Won’t we have angry voters on the right who select a property magnate for their presidential candidate and angry voters on the left who refuse to vote for an establishment candidate?
