who apparently has not even a dim awareness of the proper role of the fourth estate in a working representative republic. Or knows and is actively working against maintaining it in favor of the stranglehold of Democrat/Republican. His circular reasoning is breathtaking in its ignorance: We can't show independent candidates because people don't support independent candidates (because no one knows they are there!) We like our brands big and funded and well-known. Pay no mind to the large numbers of unaffiliated voters. Let's keep the stage play rolling! The past will predict the future because we will make sure the only choices are the ones already known and sanctioned by us.
No wonder Europeans are laughing at us.
