Why I think Trump winning could be good:
First, I think “President Trump” sounds pretty goddamn scary. The guy’s clearly unfit for duty. Putting him in charge of the mighty American military is like giving gasoline to a pyromaniac. He’s going to use it, irresponsibly. He bullied his way to wealth in real estate. Having read several of his “books,” I understand his views: Screw everyone. They made the deal and it’s on them that they lost everything. I’m getting mine. They should be smarter.
Never mind the fact that he preys on the unsuspecting and the ill-informed.
Second, Trump knows that he’s just an entertainer. The guy’s a clown; a pompous ass. Reagan was a cowboy; a shoot-from-the-hip type, sure. Both actors, but vastly different. Reagan served as California’s governor, exposing him to the political realm before jumping onto the national stage. All of Trump’s experience is from bribing politicians, greasing palms, and backroom dealing. Conservatives hold Reagan up like a saint; remembering him for telling Mr. Gorbachev to “tear down’ a wall. Trump wants a fence erected between the United States and Mexico.
Trump’s message about immigration and militant Islam are ignorant. Simply put, he says what the dopey masses say about these topics and more behind closed doors. He’s our drunk uncle at Thanksgiving dinner. He’s the raving lunatic sitting by himself on the bus. He’s the tin foil helmet-wearing nutter in his mom’s attic, listening to shortwave radio for government secrets.
Third, Trump is scaring his own “party” into backing off their long-held stances on issuers. Shepard Smith of Fox News called him a carnival huckster. Fox News is even distancing themselves from his rhetoric. Fox. News. They put the con in conservative. Yet the shit he spews is too much for even them. Party stalwarts are doing that slow, back away thing you’ve done when a friend started talking religion or politics with your opinionated neighbor at a block party. Anyone who sticks with him – you’re on your own.
By now, you can see where I’m going with that line of reasoning. Now, however, I’ll tell you why I think it’s good that Donald Trump is getting so much attention.
Because he’s getting so much attention.
Americans are waking up. They’re starting to realize that the reality we’ve been force fed for decades is not real reality.
The political system is broken and needs a dramatic overhaul. Career politicians need to be thrown out on their ears. They’ve steered the American ship into jetty after rocky jetty, ignoring the beacons of light, truth, and hope which the American citizens have been holding up and waving for a long time now. Yet we keep handing over the keys.
If Trump were to win the GOP nomination or worse, the Presidency, the United States would get exactly what it deserves. If he manages to dupe enough people into playing his game, we all deserve to have him lift up the shell and see no pea. He is a three card monte dealer, bending his cards in such a way that’s hard to catch if distracted.
What Trump is doing, however, is shedding a blinding light on this broken system; demonstrating how easily led astray the public can be. We love our shiny objects, and nothing shines like national pride. We all want to belong, and who doesn’t want to belong to the biggest, baddest nation on Earth? It’s the reason so many people are rushing to get inside. And while he says he doesn’t care about parties, Trump clearly wants to be accepted into the GOP bosom. His very presence at a debate podium testifies to that point.
Whether he knows it or not, Trump is forcing the citizens to take heed and acknowledge that Republicans and Democrats are all the same. Unrest and displeasure are nothing new to the populace, but technology has allowed this generation to do what previous generations could not: share information—and plan its next moves—in real time.
The acceleration is accelerating and Trump is the greasiest grease we’ve had in a long time. Those who agree stand beside the Donald, shouting isolation and might! Those who oppose shout inclusion and care. What they’re failing to see, however, is that they agree on the central point: the need for change. The change we didn’t get from this most-recent presidency. The long-in-arriving change that must take place in order to secure the futures of both the United States and humanity. Not human beings, humanity. Decency. Respect for others’ rights as an individual.
We have discarded our decency for the illusion of security. It’s a frightful trade that I’m afraid has gone horribly wrong for humanity. We have no privacy, no dignity; no boundaries. Trump’s rhetoric is the ranting of a child who learned to read a big word and now uses it in every sentence. He’s found something that makes people scream “yes!” and pump their fists in agreement. What we need is to open our hands, be grateful for our place in this world, and agree to export that sense of security to the rest of the world.
Look, I know war is at times inevitable. I also know it’s avoidable. We fight if we must, and if the threat is as grave as it feels, then we fight. But if we don’t have to close the doors to humanity, then we need not do so.
Trump is slamming shut that door and opening one on the other side of which is destruction. While I’m no fan, the election of our current “leader” shows that the United States wants something different; something promised yet not delivered. The reality stood firm and we’re still stuck in partisan shit that gets little done but pats itself on its back and pays itself for a job well-done. We need to take the next step, and discard the democrats, repeal the republicans. Shit-can the entire system and build a new one—stronger and better, more representative of the people it represents. At every level.
It’s always darkest before the dawn, though I’ve never measured daylight before sunrise, so I can’t say for certain. Things can get really bad before they get better. Trump bad. If they do, hold on tight. We’re in for a dark, bumpy road with no headlights. Things get Trump bad, we deserve the darkness that comes. But the Sun will rise. It always does.
It has to.
It’s time we pay attention to the man behind the curtain. To rip the globalist-elite from their hiding places and demand they step down. Beyond the political, the economic system is broken. Too long have we been enslaved by imaginary debts and interest created out of thin air. Money is worthless. Cash is being phased out. Shit, I pay for my $4.00 coffee with my cell phone. If my great-grandfather(pick one) were to read that, he’d probably put me in a headlock and make me call him pappy.
Anyway, I have to go do something else. Thank you for reading. Open your mind and stop accepting official stories and ask why? It’s the human thing to do.
