One reason Trump and Bernie are getting a hearing

Plainfield Today reader Tom Crownover posted a finny bit on his Facebook page (see here) that perfectly illustrates one reason Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are getting a serious look-and-listen from American voters in the presidential primary campaigns.

Here it is --
 
 
 
Though both Trump and Bernie have tapped into American anger and frustration with their government, they have quite different agendas.

The Donald is preaching a message of exclusion, fear and bigotry.

Bernie is hopeful and offers a plan for the 99% to get the 1% under control.

Scorn for both houses of Congress is almost universal -- with the exception that voters may give a break to "their" congressional rep.

The question isn't whether America will move forward -- it will -- but in which direction?
