An election should be a debate of ideas, and it was: Trump raged against global plutocratization: Clinton saw the risk, she made a 180 degrees AGAINST globalization and condemned the TPP she had negotiated.
Trump was against Obamacare. Sure enough, Bill Clinton condemned Obamacare as the “craziest thing in the world”. That’s a debate: Trump persuading Clinton to change from black, to white.
Another positive: herds of bleating sheep who never cared about politics, suddenly had fire in their bellies. Indeed, today is the day when millions of hypnotized losers will vote for their torturer, Goldman Sachs. No wonder, they are so enraged.
In all states, the election was much more than just a presidential choice: there were votes for Senators, Congressmen, local state officials. In California, the election was much more than Trump versus Clinton: there were three other candidates, including an ecologist (Dr. Jill Stein) and a libertarian. One could “write in” anybody else (including Bernie Sanders). More importantly, California had 17 statewide “propositions”. If they pass, those have force of law. One proposition outlawed the death penalty. Another Californian proposition extended a supplementary tax on the rich by no less than 12 years.
To add to these statewide California propositions were region wide, county-wide, and city-wide propositions. In the SF Bay Area, one proposition proposed to raise 3.5 billion dollars for the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART, a sort of fast, and noisy metro). It was alone in the back of a page, I nearly missed it.
I was called all sorts of names by individuals who claim to care about the causes Hillary Clinton loudly embrace (and which I approve of). The hysteria was often total. A guy called Jim Herson, who has never bothered to reciprocate the salutations I addressed to him when I came across him, in the last few decades, called me a liar. Said he:”You lied about the supermajority, and you lied when you said Obama was president in 2006”.
Of course, I never said Obama was president when he was Senator. But hysteria is hysteria! Alleluia!, and the Dems had indeed a supermajority in 2009, so they could have passed all the American Dreams they could dream of. But in truth all the dreams of the Demoncratic elite were about seducing all the plutocrats.
Pseudo-leftist posers who confuse reflection and insults need to learn that being excited, although necessary, is not enough to have cogent opinions.
Obama census bureau showed, a month the median income is lower today, by more than 5% than 17 years ago, while inflation is through the roof in non CPI elements such as health care and education. Obama was a nullity. Except for the elite pulling his strings. Trump may show him how one governs for We The People, instead. Lots of garbage to move.
Wall Street indices have collapsed and have been halted. The Wall Street candidate, Hillary the hilarious Clinton, its candidate is threatened, so Wall Street is collapsing.
