New Hampshire, or, the undoing of America's Potemkin Village

Glad to see Sanders and Trump come out on top in New Hampshire. Why would Americans turn out in record numbers against establishment candidates like Bush and Clinton if things are going well? Things aren't going well. Maybe people aren't actually thinking that government statisticians are purposely lying to them, but maybe that the statistics simply don't measure reality. That the Dow at 16,000 is reflection on the overall state of the American economy.

At any rate, nice to see the establishment Wall Street backed warmongers get their teeth kicked in for once. I don't particularly like Sanders or Trump, but unlike everyone else except for maybe Kasich, they don't ooze craven opportunism. So there's that.
