The establishment tried to shove another Bush or Clinton down our throats and they got Trumped.
I doubt that the Donald will be a very effective president. I am under no illusion that he’s going to usher in some great era of limited government or general contentment among the masses. But I still feel America dodged the Hillary bullet and for that I’m thankful. Simply by winning the election, Trump accomplished some good things whether he even realizes it himself.
- The media have been exposed for the establishment shills they are. No one outside of hardcore partisan Democrats can possibly ever believe anything they “report” from now on.
- The GOP as we’ve known it for the last three decades is dead. The neocons have been rebuked by the masses. Running on an Israel first warmongering platform is no longer going to win elections.
- Globalism has suffered a huge defeat. The general conceit emanating from the imperial capital of Washington D.C. that the global “order” in place since World War II must never end is no longer accepted by the average Joe. Americans no longer feel the need to accept unlimited subsidized immigration while supporting wars against any “rogue” state that resists the US government’s will.
- Political correctness has suffered a major blow. The latest left wing dogma is not accepted by everyone, and people no longer cower in fear at being called racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, etc. etc.
It’s a good day in America. Let’s hope the actual reality of the Trump presidency doesn’t ruin it completely.
