Both Cruz and Kasich have dropped out, finally realizing they never stood a chance. Why did they stay in so long, trying to stop Trump?
As far as I know it was Caroll Quiqley who created the concept of the Deep State, in his seminal book, Tragedy and Hope. The Deep State is that collection of bureaucrats, bankers, the military/industrial complex and Big Business, that actually runs the country. Politicians are mostly their puppets.
These are the people, who live on the coasts, who consider everyone in Flyover Land to be cannon fodder ("Soldiers are stupid animals," as the Jew war criminal Henry Kissinger said).
Some politicians want to be part of the Deep State. Barry Soetero, for example, never had a job in his life but has been a puppet of the Deep State and certainly wants to be part of it. That's why such people end up getting paid a zillion dollars for a speech.
Bill Clinton was actually a student of Quigley's and I'm sure he certainly understands what Quiqley taught.
Cruz and Kasich certainly support the Deep State.
Trump appears to be a traitor to his own class which means he is a patriot. I think he really does love this country.
It reminds me of a song by the Kinks called "Victoria," which was about England's Queen Victoria. "I am poor but I am free...for this land I would die." They remind me of Trump's blue collar/working class supporters.
Cruz and Kasich wanted business as usual - all that Deep State destructiveness. People see through the problem even they've never heard of the Deep State. That's why they've been voting for Trump and Sanders.
The next ten years are going to be interesting. The American Empire is finally collapsing. If we have any sense we'll jump ahead of the game and bring it home before it collapses and save a lot of blood and treasure. Out with the Third World vermin investing this country. Get the economy back online.
These are not hard things to do. The people want it. Apparently Trump wants it. The Establishment does not, but the Establishment always falls.
And thank God for that.
