The problem with America is we have dumbed ourselves down; we have left too many in dire straits for too long; that we have a populace that is not educated but in a lot of pain. The drudgery of poverty and the worry of how are we going to pay the bills has overwhelmed their synapses. So they settle for inane reality television, the Fox News of simple thinking, or talk radio of easy righteous indignation: let me know what is right and wrong we have no energy to deal with nuances.
The lack of good education means we have not been trained to make solid verbal arguments. So we give the simple thinking of Fox News with a combination of easy righteous indignation and use it as evidence of brainpower. If this does not work we threaten to resort to force. Open carry laws, militias, masks, skinheads is all a threat of force. When you have not been trained to think through what are the problems you have and how to cure them you naturally result to violence.
Now violence is not only physical it is also political. Donald Trump is the violence of a poor and uneducated populace wanting to destroy everything because they are in pain and do not know how to get out of it. Now they do not necessarily know this about themselves. So instead they proclaim Hillary and other liberals are destroying America not me. I am a patriot. After all I did not create the bad education choices and low paying or no jobs at all environment.
The Left offers Obamacare but it is half a solution therefore it must be more of the same.
Think who Trump is. Trump the violator does not, despite what he says, have a big vocabulary. He is only able to give out guttural utterances that are off the cuff. They may not make sense but at least it is spoken in the language they can understand and the emotions of “I do not give a damn,” they feel. He does not know how Washington works but he knows how to fend for himself. Too much debt? Declare bankruptcy. A project costs more than you expected? Do not pay the contractor and claim they did not do adequate work. If people verbally attack, you strike forty times as hard back. Never apologize because the bottom line is that the world is dealing you a bad hand and ultimately the world here is in the wrong.
They have plenty of room to rationalize boorish and bigoted behavior. They did not create the divide between the rich and poor, the healthcare problem, terrorists or what other issues they may have. This unjust divide between the rich and poor allows them space for whatever faux pas they make along the way. After all the divide doesn’t even measure up to how they know the world is treating them. So grace is given to the Violator because he is striking out and that is what they feel.
So what if he makes threats he may or may not be able to or intend to carry out. So what if he sounds bigoted when dealing with the terrorist threats as long as he does something. So what if he pals around with the swamp creatures he denounced as long as he gets things done. So what if he is too friendly with Russia as long as he makes the world less threatening. So what if he is making money off his position as long as the economy is good. So what if he uses sexist and vulgar language as long as he appoints a Supreme Court justice against abortion. So what if he ruffles a few European feathers as long as he brings more money home. As long as he makes these things better, they will be there at his side. Of course if the economy stops growing and the divide between rich and poor increases, healthcare worsens, more soldiers are killed over seas and no end to the war on terror is within sight and so forth they will silently drift away from him. So in a year’s time Trump will be left all alone and we will be left to build back what he has managed to destroy. The Left needs to be sure they are pursuing policies that change the character of the life of our people or the Bride of Trump will soon be seen at your nearest multi-plex Capitol and White House.
