The Coming Crack Up of America’s Political Parties

Should victory visit Hillary Clinton’s door
it shall not come bearing a mandate for a grand new vision or bold new policy
direction. History will simply note that voters found
her less objectionable than her opponent. Having stuck with her, the Bernie Sanders
wing of the democratic party will want its due. And it will be difficult for Mrs. Clinton
to make them happy. They are
a populist bunch, hell bent on massive redistribution of wealth, and not interested
in fighting new wars in the middle east, or another cold war with Russia. Clinton cannot please the Sanders wing without
alienating those on Wall Street that helped pay her bills. She cannot pay for the Sanders wing wish list
without breaking her no-new-taxes promise to the middle class. The Republican Party has already cracked. The evangelical wing has lost its moral compass
and shed its credibility as the arbiter of the good and the holy. The establishment Wing and their neocon allies
are already exiting the Republican tent. The blue collar, working class wing that has
been a reliable Republican voting block may soon be looking for looking
for a new tent. The wings of the Republican coalition are
so deeply divided on entitlements, trade, immigration, when and where to fight
wars that even a Trump victory will not again unite them. This election has laid raw the stark divisions
inside the American Political parties. A change and a realignment is inevitable. What has not, and will not change is this: An entire generation of Americans have been
left behind by our current political parties; their piece of the American dream
denied. They will soon be looking for someone willing
to speak for them. Have questions? Hit the comment button. Or email me at [email protected] Be sure to visit to get your

  1. Great video, succinctly beautiful. Hopefully one day I will be able to pick your mind and pick up some advice should I pursue my passion for political or social office. Have a marvelous day Mr. Townsend.

  2. Hello Jay, I am Peter Crawford–Valentino, and I am running for governor of California. I appreciate all your videos and I especially appreciate that you are an honest and true American. As I see it, America's current problem stems from the fact that we are ruled from without. We must take into account that the UN is pushing vigorously for world government which would destroy our own constitutional republic.

    It is my feeling that this can only be stopped at the level of state government, by adhering strongly to the state constitution. I see the coming years as a purging, and a re-assertion of the American values contained within our constitution.
    I look forward to working with you on my campaign and I will contact you as soon as I am in a position to do so financially.

  3. When you point a finger at someone, there's 3 fingers coming back at you, staring you in the face. When you play the blame game, you blame everyone except yourself. There's been too much of the blame game being played for the last couple of decades without really looking at the problems that ail America and the rest of the Western world have been facing. Free markets disappointed us. Government regulation didn't protect us. And trashing everything that's been built up isn't going to solve it (the image of this scenario that comes to mind is the bombed out buildings of Berlin after WWII).

    There has to be a concensus of opinion as to how to solve the problems that face us. Unfortunately, I'm not too sure that one can be found. The next 2 years are going to be very interesting for Republicans and Democrats alike. I only hope the outcomes will be positive for the country. But I have my doubts.

  4. "The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." Edmund Burke.   While many of them may be rude, crude, and/or self serving, I do not necessarily believe any of our political leaders are truly evil. However,  I really wish some good men and women would step up and run for office.  Then, maybe, the spirit of compromise and working for the common good could be revived.    It seems that in the Information Age,  the voice of reason is often drowned out by shouts of panic. I think this presidential election is an example of this. There were much better choices available in the primaries but they were all overwhelmed by the resources of the current candidates.

  5. Jay, looking forward to hearing your analysis on what took place yesterday. I was hoping you were wrong about what we were seeing but you were spot on. Politics I tell you!
