Dr. C. Wright Mills published “The Power Elite“, who asserted that the US politics is controlled not by politicians, but by the power elite who are working behind the scene and are pulling the strings.
In the past history of electoral system of the US, politicians made promises to their constituencies, and they really never fulfill their promises. As a result, people stop voting during electoral process, and during election time voting turn over became less. This has impact on legitimacy of government to rule the US.
Once, this became clear that there is a problem with the electoral system of the US, and there was a public outcry for diversity of the US political system, the power elite elected Mr. Obama as the US president with golden promises of changes that he really did not deliver them.
Now, the power elite have Trump and Hillary Clinton at their show case for the public. This time the slogan of the parties are we will make America great again. The interesting point is here that Mr. Trump is making clear cut comments that how he is going to build walls around the US to prevent rotten applies to enter the US, if he is elected to the President’s office. Clinton is promising pragmatic approach to the issues. She means that she will build invisible walls around the US to prevent rotten applies to gain access to the US soil.
The matter of fact is, Mr. Trump and Ms. Clinton will not bring any changes to the US. in fact, they will follow the core essence policy of the power elite. Maintaining the war policy and entrenching further libertarian political economy in the US.
Now, the choice is yours, do you want Coke or Pepsi?
