(OK get a coffee...I feel a litany coming on...)
Some have asked why a Canuck would be so interested in American politics.
1. When the US sneazes, Canada gets a cold.
2. The US political scene is the classic political battle. Two parties, with 'supposedly' opposing views. Liberal Vs. Conservative. And what makes it all so amusing to me...at least...is that, for all the hot-air blowing that goes on, almost ZERO people actually realise that the two sides NEED each other in order to run the nation well. Instead, the vast majority are simple partisan hacks.
It is outrageously obvious, to even the common onlooker, that all American politicians are bought and paid for. It is also painfully obvious that the political and powerful of the USA...don't really care a whole lot about anything but...maintaining their wealth and power. This is the world Donald J Trump lived in. Remember the 2016 debates? How Hillary was so comfortable with being on a first name basis with Trump? That's because she was. They know each other well. Their daughters were/are still?? good friends. They live at the same social plateau.
So this guy, changes parties, attacks Obama and makes a spectacle of himself, then runs for POTUS. Then he comes out and announces his open opposition to the very thing that had been generating immense wealth for all of his friends and associates. GLOBALISM.
Why do you think politicians do allot of talking, and talking, and talking...but accomplish little to nothing?
Its hard to maneuver the public through a basic "gleep" of everything they hold dear;
potential for advancement
All being actively and silently...eroded. When old man Sanders tell you that the top 1% own everything...he's absolutely right.
Is Washington a "swamp"? You bet your ass it is. Has been for...well, for over a generation now...and everyone knows it.
Trump comes on like he just doesn't care about this power structure, and declares war on it.
At first...he's treated like a public joke. But the anger of the American people is at a feverish pitch, and this odd fellow begins actually winning.
It gets to the point that, no matter how abrasive or 'suggestive' he is...the friggin' public eat it up. And why shouldn't they?
FINALLY someone who, unlike Sanders, wants to turn it all upside down, and promote capitalism instead of socialism.
The rest is 'window dressing' to Trump supporters. In fact, the more he can piss them off, the better.
The Democrats see this and are shocked. Hell everyone was shocked. And what do they do? Well...they do what they do best. They proceed to try to destroy Trump in every and any way possible. The media lines up against him, and in what I figure was the best thing Roger Ailes ever did, FOX sides with him. Now I know Ailes was a dick...lets just ignore that for now as its rather irrelevant.
We all know the results. America was and is being dragged through the mud, all in order to destroy this self-ascribed...NATIONALIST.'
All the investigations...all the innuendo...the infamous race card...everything INCLUDING the kitchen sink, has been heaved at this guy. Granted, he doesn't help much with some of the things he tweets and says, but he has set about...alone for the most part...to get results with his agenda. He actually proceeds to tear down that which the powerful have spent so many decades carefully building. Its unthinkable! eh?
