Having thoughts, feelings, or motives that are easily perceived. What I like about both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump is that they are both mostly transparent. Hillary Clinton was anything but transparent! In order for Democracy to work well for the people, politicians need to be honest and upfront with them. Trumps call to drain the swamp very likely works for Sanders but for different reasons. When Hillary says that nobody likes Bernie (and Trump for that matter) she is talking about the professional career politicians who are being rejected by both of them and wishing to keep it business as usual.

As America’s fortunes continue to decline the call for transparency will increase and that can only be good for democracy in the long term! However we will need to de-weaponize the political system by limiting the amount of dollars that can be expended here. Both businesses and unions need to be banned from making political campaign contributions as a start. We should allow only individual voters to only make contributions to political campaigns!

And that is all I’m going to say about that!
