If Donald Trump is elected President, and he could easily pull it off because the Clinton campaign is in total disarray and Johnson’s campaign just doesn’t have the steam, there will be a revolution in the streets of the United States that will make the February and October Russian Revolutions of 1917/1918 look like popping into a chalk pavement picture in Mary Poppins.
Don’t think so? Look at what Anonymous has been able to pull off in recent years. One would hope the american people would take to the streets prior to the damage being done, but that’s not going to happen in any significant numbers.
The people voting for Trump believe that America should be the international schoolyard bully. That America has the right to go into any country, pillage their resources to maintain a slothful way of life and murder a few thousand people along the way – including our own sons and daughters.
I am certain there are a significant number of people voting for Trump ONLY because of Hillary (and Bill) Clinton’s shenanigans going all the way back to Whitewater. I’m not pushing Hillary, god knows, but that will be a large block of people.
The people voting for Trump believe America can be made great again – what that really means is that they believe America can have the clock turned back to early 20th century white male dominance in all matters, and that women and minorities should be “put back into their place” as chattel.
The people voting for Trump have no qualms whatsoever about using nuclear arms. Anywhere. Against anyone. Including the US or any allies (if we have any left after November).
Neither candidate carries anything close to the moral compass needed to be the head of state.
It is true that the moral consciousness of the world must recognize the importance of removing injustices and well-founded grievances; but at the same time it must be aroused to the cardinal necessity of honoring sanctity of treaties, of respecting the rights and liberties of others, and of putting an end to acts of international aggression. – FDR
FDR’s words speak to the need of ending terrorism, but they also speak to ANY nation who plays the aggressor. Our glass houses will not withstand much scrutiny.
Wisdom, compassion, and courage are the three universally recognized moral qualities of men. – Confucius
Haven’t seen much of any of those qualities in our candidates.
The battle has yet to begin. The race to November is the preamble.
