More Trump (and Other) Politics
Q. I have been thinking lately about the state of the nation. The things that I see going on in our national politics, i.e., the race for the presidency, suggest to me that things may be much more serious than most of us believe. I think that the Trump Phenomenon is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of people rejecting the status quo. The phenomenon has made Trump, not the other way around, in my view. The question that arises is where is all this going? It came to me that it may be going toward something like the collapse of the Soviet Union that happened back in the 1989-1991 timeframe.
Trump… People are so tired of traditional politics that even as outspoken as he may be at times, a good majority can overlook it. In previous elections, I get that if the “standard” politicians, such as Romney or McCain were to say a tenth of the things that Trump has said, they would have never been supported by the people.
Another thing I see is that many people like being entertained, and Trump used that fact to help propel his campaign. He did what no one has done before, and created a “reality show” effect (another reason he was so outspoken- free media coverage). He drew people in to see what he would be doing next, got tons of media coverage, and gained popularity.
I also see a shift in how the people view the government. People have lost faith in officials helping and supporting them. There has been so much double speak, that they at least feel like what Trump says, he means, even it is not politically correct.
Trump has a huge ego, and that ego is what would inspire him to want to make America great, because it is a reflection of him. He would treat the country as a business, and focus hard on the economic system. He will have a hard time getting respect at first, but see him working aggressively at it. Obama feels a little passive at getting bipartisan support, but Trump feel very “loud and aggressive” at getting both sides to work together. I also get that if he were in office he will not tolerate “time wasting” and will resort to using his executive order to get things that he feels are in the greater good of the country to move forward.
Trump looks to engage the middle and lower class working people more so than the upper class. The upper class tries to “check out” and not support Trump, and look for any work around they can find. The lower class looks to embrace some infrastructure projects and a better overall economic system. I see that in the timeline that Trump makes it, the PTB will work hard at taking him “out” and that will be a HUGE new story.. Trump will not be bought, and that scares the PTB. I cannot see things getting to how they were in the USSR, but things are definitely changing..
Hillary… She is very much affiliated with the PTB group. I get she has already been bought and influenced to work with those that are in power. They want her in office to help push through agendas that are already in force. The PTB are doing what they can to see her succeed, and the most dominate timeline has her projected to win the election. I get the PTB have already crossed the line, and are working with the Republican side to try to discredit Trump and get people to have an overall perception that he isn’t presidential.
I get the real reason some of the “Republicans” such as Bush and Romney are not supporting a fellow Republican is because the fellow Republican party member doesn’t support the PTB. The real issue going on in the Republican party is who is with the PTB, and who is against.
Sanders.. His energy is sincere and he has a passion to help the younger generations. He has a genuine concern for the youth, and realizes the future of the country relies on them (education, drive, morals). He feels that focusing energy on them and ensuring jobs are on our soil will help the overall picture.
He also realizes that people have been beat down with false promises and taken advantage of by bank usury and the ease of loans. We have become a society of instant gratification rather than delayed gratification. If people could eliminate stress of financially straining issues (like health and college debt), they have a better chance at being able to save for their future and do things the “old fashioned” way.
And that is all I have for this reading. Thank you. Love and light-
