It's called populism, it ebbs and flows in history.

See: La Follette, Wallace, Bryan

Oh, Hollywood, what damage you have done. Even those who should know better believe life is just like one of your scripts: there must always be danger on the horizon; there must always be a villain, and ultimately a hero.

Oh, Hollywood, what damage you have done.

I still believe he would make a good President. America definitely needs something different than what we have gotten since Reagan.
And they need a complete overhaul of their political system. Without that they will go the way of glorious Rome.

Please, expound why the political system needs an overhaul

Because you really only have 2 parties.
If I am not mistaken, the only elected independent President was George Washington, as in not a member of Democrats or Republicans.

It is a dream for those organizations who like to control the political system. Controlling one candidate gives them a 50/50% chance to be in good standing with the President of the USA. Donations go a long way and you have a whole lobbying system in place that enables such a system to thrive.
It needs to be reformed, allowing a system less manipulated by the industry and those who gain certain things.

When I vote for president there are eight or nine candidates on the ballot. I can vote for a presidential candidate from the Republicans, Democrats, Constitution Party, Green Party, Independent Party, Communist Party,Socialist Workers' Party, etc. The fact those candidates never win says something about the general good sense of the American electorate.

I think it says more about your political system than the American electorate.

With all that supporting evidence it is hard to disagree
