Like Mr. Trump and Mr. Obama, Ms. Warren will be beset by opposing political forces to stall her mission if she becomes president. She is no political messiah. If we think she is a messiah, we will be disappointed.

The solution lies in a total reform of our electoral system. We need to set up mechanisms where voters actually know something about the people they are voting for — other than the party that proffered them on the ballot. In fact, we need to rid ourselves of political parties altogether.

Umair, please consider Tiered Democratic Governance. This system is FOR THE PEOPLE. And it will be built BY THE PEOPLE. There is no messiah. Ordinary people will be responsible for its rise and success.

And the TDG only needs 1% of the population to start building it. It need not get approval from Mr. Trump or Ms. Warren. Don’t wait for a messiah! Just get to work!
