by system failure
After Bernie Sanders lost the Democratic primary race from Hillary Clinton, it seemed for a moment that the whole process was about to return to the well-known bi-partisan political show, run by the establishment for decades.
Things got worse when Bernie decided to endorse Hillary, sending waves of disappointment to thousands of supporters. Yet, this move made things more clear, as showed that most of the former 'Berniebros' are completely determined not to support Hillary.
In previous article it has been estimated that “Perhaps Bernie wants to make sure that Hillary will stay to the left. He may become an extra pair of strict political eyes on her. Hillary would find even more difficult to escape and follow the neocon/neoliberal agenda, especially when she knows that millions of Americans who are got sick of the establishment will be watching her closely.” As Bernie decided to leave the Democratic Party, he actually sent the message that the job must be done by the people, who have the real power.
That's perfectly normal because people are not politicians, they are not acting on a basis of political tactics. The American people, and especially the American youth, showed that they want straight, radical change because they had enough of the neoliberal establishment that dominated for about four decades and brought instability, inequality, poverty, unemployment.
Bernie's absence created, for a moment, a significant vacuum in the political process, as millions of US voters are not willing to compromise with the "lesser of two evils" logic in the oncoming presidential elections.
However, millions of Americans showed remarkable determination in not giving up, and therefore, turned immediately to the Green Party and Jill Stein. We are actually witnessing an amazingly unique situation in the United States. At the moment where the establishment thought that managed to "normalize" things, turning the political process to "business as usual", the momentum of Sanders' movement boosted Jill Stein's perspective out of nowhere.
Polls show that Stein has still little power, but inside this situation, with that momentum, no one can actually predict what will happen until November elections. Furthermore, Jill Stein has a few advantages compared to Bernie Sanders:
1 - She has been always faithful to the Green Party. This fact alone gives her extra credits, as she has clearly chosen to stay out of the US bi-partisanism, in every level.
2 - She can get instant power from the quite mature Sanders movement, which means that despite that she has little time until the day of the national elections, she can turn this short time into an advantage. The establishment, at this point, doesn't have enough time to organize effective propaganda operations against her through the corporate media.
3 - Remaining faithfully out of the bi-partisan establishment, she can attract millions of disappointed voters who have chosen to stay out of the political process. That fact alone brings further anxiety to the establishment mechanisms, as it is extremely difficult to measure this hidden potential.
Whether Jill Stein will manage to participate in the "theatrical" debates or not, people have plenty of ways now to hear her positions. In fact, her exclusion from the debates by the mainstream media would give her extra points, as this would be another proof that the establishment is really frightened by the momentum of Sanders' heritage. The alternative media already give Stein a chance to communicate with the American people, as they did with Bernie Sanders.
It has been pointed that “No matter who will be elected eventually, the final countdown for the demolition of this brutal system has already started and it's irreversible. The question now is not if, but when it will collapse, and what this collapse will bring the day after. In any case, if people are truly united, they have nothing to fear.”
Now, Jill Stein and the Greens, may become the alternative tool with which this demolition may come much faster. Everything will depend on the degree of mobilization of the American people.
