This couldn’t be any more correct as the left-right paradigm nowadays is a complete sham, as both candidates are the same. They will tell you whatever you want to hear and masqurade as whatever you want to see during the campaign while knowing 99% of the public doesn’t research the track record that concludes what will happen when elected.

The fog of the false Left/Right paradigm is starting to lift, and all that lay in its wake is a hoard of lost wide-eyed flabbergasted followers without a coattail or a talking point to cling to.
