I have a daughter that is a member of the elite that lives in NYC. She asked me last week who I was going to vote for. I gave her the same answer I have given to a number of people previously that cared to know what my intentions were and that was if forced to vote I would vote for Trump. She was quite disappointed, to say the least, in my answer. She lives in a world that, at least publicly, proclaims to be voting for Hillary. She knew my history of anti-war activism and progressive issues. Her profound disappointment in my answer and subsequent scolding I received, made me reevaluate my answer to see if it was inappropriate and why someone so bright could be that tenacious in their support of Hillary Clinton.
I looked again at the past and current landscape with Trump. I asked myself a few simple questions (I'm a simple man). Why would EVERY single main stream news outlet conduct a smear campaign on Donald Trump? They have not even tried to disguise their intentions. Even the perennial right wing corporate shill Fox is in on the attack on the DON.
My daughter knew that I considered Donald Trump to be a rube and a blowhard with a limited intellect and historical knowledge base necessary to understand the complexities of a dangerous world. Only the uneducated, curmudgeon class was voting for the pompous blond pompadour populist she probably thought. Mentally, I wandered back to the same thought….WHY are every shill media hack jobs trying to destroy Donald J Trump? Never in my long history of following politics had I witnessed such a vicious, coordinated attack on one individual. What was he
I listened to the last debate and cringed at some of his stupid antics and answers, but I also duly noted his direct accusations that we are being threatened by a global order. No one does that on main stream media and lives to tell about it. I then thought about WHO was contributing to his opponent's campaign coffers. Who gave her millions and millions for her speeches. WHY are our borders now open? WHO wants millions of workers to cross into this country and Europe and for what purpose.
Will Donald J Trump really do something about a system that is so corrupt that a new word needs to be invented to describe its disgusting rotting smell? I don't know, but I keep going back to the same question. WHY does every single mainstream media attack him relentlessly? What do they know that makes them afraid of him? Maybe I just might have to vote for the guy. He sure has scared the hell out of “the system”.
