Troubles with Trump

You see, I wanted to write out my own analysis of the Trouble with Trump. But it is too late for that now, and all I have for you is a shell of a theme post: the links. Awesome links. But, I will give you a few mini-thoughts, which I would have expanded upon, if I had my druthers.

I meant to tell you, way, way before anybody ever caught on: Trump does not know what he is talking about. He reads other people like they are an encyclopaedia. Then, he spits them out as his own political platform. The big sources for Donald Trump have been Alex Jones, Roger Stone, and his family. He figures that because so many people are crazy for Alex Jones, then this means that, e.g., the Alex Jones claim that there is no (man0made) global warming is REAL. It is something to plug into the Trump platform. Clubs and gangs may work that way, but science does not - reality does not - and, eventually, society does not.

Trump is riding half of the great rise of the new, populist middle. The other half was Bernie Sanders. Bernie went away to support the establishment DNC candidate. Trump went on as the representative of the movement, sans the Bernie/Clinton deserters. Trump became the FIGHT leader of the movement, while the FLIGHT phalanx, well, it ran away, with hopeful delusions. Either arm of the movement, alone, was not strong or tasteful enough for the old middle establishment, of both parties.

Even with that, Trump could have gone on and represented the greater part of the movement, inviting in old Bernie supporters. Instead, he was saddled by the GOP, and all its old game-plan. He went through a time of personal confusion because of this, and he sank in the polls. Then, he thought he threw off the establishment Paul Ryan chains, and he got back into rough-and-tumble fighting. But, he didn't know what he was up against. Trump would now be nowhere if it were not for Wikileaks. However, there are some who believe that Wikileaks is a function of the NSA. And, the corporate media is insistent upon a somewhat 50%-vs-50% horse-race, so they can make their profits.

Well, that's all I'll do for now. I certainly have a lot more to say about all this, but not now. I am sure I'll be posting election stuff for a while, because I am not out to influence votes, so much. I am far more concerned with conveying what I think to be the truth to you's all's. What I cannot say here, maybe the links will say somewhat.
