From Tim Allen:
“I think it’s funny because Donald Trump is kind of in the spirit of old Greek tyrants where they used to vote in a guy that had no encumbrances. So the smartest thing about him, which is probably most overlooked, to me, is that he doesn’t owe anybody anything and if he would just stick to fixing the bridges, roads and infrastructures that’s what he knows how to do…just keep him doing that.”In 73 words, Allen explained Trump's appeal -- and why the Establishment hates him.
Trump won't be bought.
That is why he opposes the invasion of America by people from banana republics. He does not want America to become a banana republic.
That is why he opposes regulations. He does not want to give big companies the protection from competition that regulation provides. If the FCC controlled the Internet in 1995, there would be no Google, no Facebook, and no Twitter.
Which is why Google, Facebook, and Twitter back Hillary. They want protection.
Big banks and stock brokers laughed off Occupy Wall Street, knowing Democrats and the rest of Washington had their backs. Presidents Bush 43 and Obama rewarded with $700 billion the people who blew up the economy in 2008. No one went to jail. A few companies were "fined" -- that is told to donate to Democratic Party "charities."
The unions were right about NAFTA. The pact gutted American manufacturing. Apple makes stuff in China, not the USA. And yet Apple enjoys all the privileges and benefits of an American company.
Michael Moore told Salon: “Donald Trump came to the Detroit Economic Club and stood there in front of Ford Motor executives and said, ‘If you close these factories as you’re planning to do in Detroit and build them in Mexico, I’m going to put a 35 percent tariff on those cars when you send them back and nobody’s going to buy them.’ It was an amazing thing to see. No politician, Republican or Democrat, had ever said anything like that to these executives, and it was music to the ears of people in Michigan and Ohio and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — the Brexit states.”
In his new documentary, Moore said:
“Whether Trump means [what he says] or not is kind of irrelevant because he’s saying the things to people who are hurting. It’s why every beaten down, worthless, forgotten working stiff who used to be part of what was called the middle class loves Trump.”Moore called Trump a human Molotov cocktail:
[Trump is] “t he human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them. They’ve lost their jobs, although they’ve been foreclosed on by the bank, next came the divorce, the kids are gone, the car has been repo’ed. They haven’t had a real vacation in years. They’re stuck with the shitty Obamacare Bronze Plan, and they can’t even get a f*****g Percocet.”The vitriol against Trump reflects the disdain for the working class.
Our leaders have turned fascist. Mitt Romney foamed like a rabid dog over Trump this spring. Why? Despite his great wealth, Romney turned out to be a yapping lap dog, just like Hillary.
The system is not broke. It works quite well for Bil Gates, Carlos Slim, Warren Buffett, and every other billionaire. They buy off the politicians for a few million and rake in billions. Fake environmental concerns over Keystone have helped Obama block out the competition to Buffett's monopoly on oil coming out of North Dakota.
And the welfare state is good for pharmaceutical companies, who discovered OxyContin is a legal way to sell heroin. Best of all, Medicaid pays for it.
But for the rest of us, this no longer is Reagan Country.
The fix is in.
Vote it out.
