I thought your article was pretty good, saying why Trump's financial plans won't work. I hope you are wrong, but still, I thought the article was fair. Not like most of the liberal writers totally demonizing him and his followers. So, thanks.
I'll tell you one thing that surprised me about Trump. It was when he said, "I love the under-educated."
When I read that, I unexpectedly got tears in my eyes.
Why? Because I had never heard anyone say that. In fact, the under-educated are almost universally despised. Trailer trash, white trash, ignorant slobs, etc. etc, are terms that are usually reserved for them.
I am under-educated. I earned a full scholarship to the Michigan State School of Journalism in 1967. But, I quit my senior year of high school, married a draft resistor and went to Canada. A few months later, he betrayed me and joined the Army with his friends. Two years later, we got divorced. It took me four years to get an associate degree while working. After that I met my second husband and figured I could go back to school. But, then his son (13 at the time) got cancer and I got pregnant. No time or money to return to school. We worked 3 jobs for 5 years to get out from under the $250,000 dollars we owed for our son's cancer treatment.
Every job I have had since then (sixteen years as a psychiatric child care worker and seven years at a newspaper) has required a 4 year degree or "equivalent experience." But, my salary was capped at @7.25 per hour at both jobs.
In addition to being kept dirt poor, nothing but scorn has been heaped our way as we working class "slobs" have worked our collected asses off and suffered poverty the whole time. The working class is always portrayed as dumb fucks, crude and ridiculous. But, I find that most of them have interests that enrich our culture - hobbies after work like quilting, painting, building stuff that is useful, or some other activity other than taking selfies and talking on the phone.
So, when Trump said that he "loves the under-educated," it hit a nerve that I didn't know I had.
The Liberals have drunk the MSM kool-aid and now they think they are going to die. This is bullshit.
The working class listened to what Trump was saying and think they heard someone who actually gives a rat's ass for them. I hope we are not wrong.
I used to be a big Liberal and still retain the values of John and Robert Kennedy as well as Martin Luther King - all of whom were assassinated. I am actually praying (to Ganesh, as I am not a Christian) that The Donald will not be killed as well. Personally, I believe that I have a case of PTSD since the assassinations of my heroes. If Trump gets killed, I think I may literally go mad.
So, please ask your leftist com-padres to lay off the demonizing of Trump, and wait to see if they are as wrong now as they were about everything else. Also, start reading, whatreallyhappened.com, the daily sheeple, The Drudge Report, and Government Slaves, for openers, in addition to the lamestream.
