On opposing sides of a political dynamic, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump reflect cultures of feeling, belief, outrage, stifled political direction which have been silently exploding in the hearts and minds of millions of people in this country.
Trump won’t win the Republican nomination unless he becomes a complete candidate. Sanders can win the Democratic nomination.
"At night, devoid of any appreciation of the concept of civil rights, the Toms and Tomettes would crouch down behind fences and bushes just outside of a victim’s window and take notes about deeply private and personal things in a Dullsville shorthand that evolved over the years into an unbreakable and complex code. Today, Army Special Ops Teams use Dullsville Code Talkers in places like Iran and Piccadilly Circus, and even Palm Springs, so the enemy and Congress can’t figure out what’s going on.
"Each Code Talker is accompanied by a bodyguard whose job it is to protect the Code Talker, or to kill the Code Talker if he or she appears about to be captured by the enemy, or Congress. But, one of the recurring drawbacks with using Dullsville Code Talkers is that, after awhile, many of the bodyguards want to kill the Code Talkers even when they are not in peril of being captured."
