I hope you know what you’re doing. I get the part about voting for him. What I don’t get is being fooled by him. And I’m not sure who’s getting fooled. Is he what he appears to be, or is it all just an act?
He’s a real estate salesman. He doesn’t design buildings. He doesn’t actually build them. He just puts his name on them. He “gets it done” but what about how he gets it done?
What is his word worth? Is he an honorable man? A decent one? A kind one? Do we have any fucking idea who this guy really is?
There is a saying: “The elites take Donald Trump literally, but not seriously. His supporters take him seriously, but not literally.” Our future may depend on them having the clearer view.
This election shows the split between yesterday and tomorrow. “Make America Great Again” … like it used to be.
It is a rejection of the elite modern globalists. Those comfortable with — and who do well with — the global economy. The inevitable America of tomorrow is their world.
This election sought to make it less inevitable — break us away from the modern global economy that stole the jobs that made America great. The split is global versus local. It’s all too big; it doesn’t work.
An implication: Even the modern USA — and more so, the USA of tomorrow — is too big. It doesn’t work. Yesterday was smaller. You could wrap your head around it.
But who gets to be in that smaller USA?
What, exactly, is Donald Trump’s Great America?
And how will he get us there?
I’m shocked, dismayed, dumbfounded,… but not very surprised. It’s exactly what I feared, what’s been keeping me up at nights, what’s made me sick at heart.
This election cycle showed entropy in action. The barrel of wine and the barrel of sewage. Okay, maybe it was a barrel of vinegar, but the point stands.
Add a teaspoon of sewage to a barrel of vinegar, and you no longer have anything like a barrel of vinegar.
But add a teaspoon of vinegar to a barrel of sewage, and you pretty much still have a barrel of sewage.
Simply put: Shit wins.
I hope this works out the way you think it will.
And to all you Third Party “protest” voters… Thanks a heap. This is “why not.” I hope you’re happy.
I hope Chris Matthews is right (he’s a really smart guy). Is the appalling clown who slam-dunked an election in the most startling way possible what he seems or a savvy operator who put on one hell of a show?
And if, against all apparent odds, it turns out to be the latter, does that same savvy make him a better President than we expected?
Or is he just an opportunistic bystander to a greater desire to step back from the fast-paced modern global village.
Will the Real Donald Trump please stand up?
