Political Change Coming But Likely After #Sanders and #Trump

News
The twilight of big government, a philosophy of governance based on the minority's spending of the majority's money or other people's money (OPM), is what Sanders and Trump likely believe is a political revolution (see below). Real political change, historically driven by economic crises rather than voters, comes after the rise of Sanders and Trump. This means big government, the force that's driving OPM, the favoring of 'pet projects' while critical infrastructure such as roads, bridges, sewer and water systems reach or approach catastrophic failure, will likely continue at the local, state, and federal level until its socially unacceptable to support them.

Obviously, we have not reached that point. Until then, the majority bitches while the status quo or establishment generally ignores them. This only stokes the fire of anger for the next political cycle.

Headline: Michigan Says It Wants a Revolution

Bernie Sanders promises a political revolution, and on Tuesday he dramatically upended expectations, beating Hillary Clinton in Michigan.

Sanders’s tight victory surprised nearly everyone—including the Sanders campaign. The candidate spoke early in the night, then reemerged for a hastily arranged statement as the late returns suggested he was headed to victory. By the time the race was called, after 11 p.m., he had gone to bed. Nate Silver described the win as “among the greatest polling errors in primary history.” In practice, the win won’t provide a huge cache of delegates to Sanders, who trails Clinton, thanks to proportional representation rules.
