Still, I don’t think any of us thought the cucking would come so swiftly. Not even a hundred days in office — not even eighty — and our man, our best hope, has gone D.C. native.That's what the bubble is designed to do and why what candidates say on the campaign trail is meaningless babbling.
Does that mean that "democracy" is a waste of time? Of course, under the present configuration where Washington is a bubble.
Donald Trump knew that, promised to change it by not getting trapped in the bubble, and he got flipped in the three months anyway. "Draining the swamp" was a promise to change the system. Instead, the swamp drained him in record time.
But it would likely happen to anyone eventually, given the way the system is configured.
