Well, that sounds like quite a republican mindset to me. Freedom, not tyranny/dominion of the 51%?! You should be happy bro.
I’m not saying I like Trump, but a talking turd would be better than Hillary imo (luckily). The media machine was clearly on Clinton’s bench despite her appalling history and reputation, which should set off alarm bells when looking at the mainstream media message.
I despised Trump at first, I still think he’s a tool. But looking closer at some of the ‘terrible quotes and comments’ and seeing them in context is revealing; I found myself quickly realising why he’s popular and agreeing that he is the better option.
I don’t think Trump voters are racist isolationists any more than Brexit voters were - although we were called the same and of course racist people did vote for their agenda. That’s why the polls were wrong. Media bias put normal people off being honest about how they would vote for fear of being tarred a racist bigot even though their reasons were very different.
At the end of the day I feel like King of the Gungans beat out Emperor Palpatine. I don’t believe in the need for a political class, but I know which figurehead I’d rather see up there, despite/because some of the stupid things he has said and done already.
There is no right or left, there is only dominion or freedom, centralisation power or decentralised accountability. Political ideology is just theatre attempting to play on your emotions to manipulate you. Who cares if it’s Stalin or Hitler, nationalist pride or communist sensibility?! The problem is always the same; some people are able to project their unfettered bias into the lives of others, and all people are stupid/limited and make mistakes, so there needs to be a decentralised and incorruptible feedback loop of accountability to stop power from being exerted where it causes harm. Law doesn’t work because it has been co-opted from inception (lobbying/corruption) to enforcement (richest people buy the best lawyers and rarely end up in court, even more rarely in jail).
Trump is much better for the anarchist agenda, we need our leaders to look a bit stupid. And change is better than the status quo imo… at least we’re moving somewhere new
