Trumpoline ,  this is what is really happening now everyone is bouncing up and down for or against Donald Trump but is it really worth it ?

Protests have been all over USA against Trump , but Trump was the result of Democracy the majority of people chose him to be their president which means that the majority of the american people believe in everything Trump presents and honors. The protests should not be against Donald Trump or against the people who voted for him it should be against the system that created Trump and his supporters The system that was created by people who disagree with Trump!!! isn’t that sad ?!

What we need to be against is the culture that caused and led to what we are facing today , the culture that made it OK for this to happen , the culture that used freedom to do…

  1. Technical correction. Trump was chosen by a majority of states, not by a majority of the popular vote. He lost that. The system, as this post calls it, was set up to prevent the majority from always winning. That’s why some people question his legitimacy. And no, the people who dislike Trump didn’t create this system; it was set up long before anyone now alive was born.

    As a researcher, I’m mildly amused at the irony that the people who supported Trump are going to lose badly economically over the next two years. We are looking at a 15-20% increase in health insurance for 2018, and inflation in the cost of food and gasoline that may be comparable. Plus every family in the US will be paying $120 for the wall, if it is built. (I think the popular phrase for this is “getting screwed”. By the poster’s logic, the people who voted for him can’t complain when this happens.)

    The great president, Theodore Roosevelt, had this to say:

    ““Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else.”

  2. Yes, it’s a sad situation. I thought Trump would settle down a bit after the election but he seems to be as volatile and useless as ever, totally unsuited for a position like president of the US. He took our prime minister in Australia to task over a refugee swap deal put together under Obama and it became world headlines. He’s threatening to send troops into Mexico and he’s causing problems for European leaders. Putin and Russia, despite all their atrocities, may become his only friend. Trump may well become the world’s biggest problem, if he’s not that already.

    The majority of people didn’t actually choose him. He got well over 2 million votes fewer than Clinton, but the electoral college system got him there. The east and west voted for Clinton. The middle states voted for Trump, especially uneducated white males. These people used to leave school at 15 and get a job at the local factory at $20 an hour, but the factory is now in China because it’s a whole lot cheaper.

    So I guess a lot of these people are desperate and are willing to vote for someone who appears to have the answers. But I think the opposite will occur. I don’t think Trump has the answers to anything, including the economy, the budget, the environment, terrorism, refugees, international relations, or much else. Waving a big stick at everyone will probably make things considerably worse.

    If there was an election tomorrow, I’m sure he would be voted out. But that doesn’t help us in the meantime. Perhaps the lawyers will get him on constitutional matters. Perhaps the women he assaulted will take him to court and get a favourable result. It’s hard to see this thing lasting four years. For the sake of the US and the world, let’s hope it doesn’t.
