This sort of **** is how civil wars start.
Amen to that ... it is generally accepted that all politicians are liars, but when they cannot even keep even one campaign promise or follow the platforms they ran on, it undermines democracy to the point where people will eventually wake up and start voting by other means.
Obama pulled this garbage as well, running as a "progressive" yet when it came right down to it, he did nothing progressive at all. His healthcare law was a bailout of private healthcare monopolies, as we know well from Karl's writings on the subject. He did nothing to restrain the banks, in fact he put Tim Geithner as head of Treasury despite his having been discovered to be a tax cheat during the nomination process.
And when it comes to foreign policy, we can all see how they love to feed the war machine.
The "red team/blue team" crap is nothing but an attempt to distract the voters from the fact that there are no substantive differences between either major party. They are both part of a criminal racket whose objective is to sell the government off to the highest bidder.
The latest is that Trump apparently put some guy in the US Trade Representatives office who helped negotiate the TPP:
A lot of people probably voted for Trump "for grins and giggles" but are now finding out that the joke is on them.
