THE ZERO-SUM WORLDVIEW OF DONALD

The American economy is unpredictable. Multi-millions of transactions executed by millions of Americans create subtleties, crescendos, diminuendos, and abrupt market variations; unpredictability is an intrinsic dynamic of ‘the market.’ The market instinctively vets and weans the winners from the losers. Winners and losers are the essence of an economy founded on capitalism.

The ideal of capitalism is in fact a principle of natural selection, adaptations, variations, and compromises, diminishes the ideal of capitalism and corrupts its meaningfulness. Mercantilism (as espoused by Trump) and socialism (promoted by Sanders) are varied forms of protectionism, a sort of statutorily compliant cronyism. Our present tax code is a perfect example of a corrupt perversion of capitalism.

The last one hundred and twenty years of Democratic and Republican administrations (with rare exceptions) have a distinctive commonality: they have all perverted and corrupted the meaningfulness of capitalism’s ideal. More significantly, prompted and fueled by the outlanders of capitalism and in direct proportion to egregious governmental incursion into the economic marketplace, cronyism propagates and overtly contributes to the diminution of liberty. A democratic republic cannot sustain its classic merits within a less than capitalistic economic system.

Donald is going to make this country great again. He is going to build a wall and have Mexico pay for it. Donald is an extraordinary man in possession of a great brain; Donald consults with himself… Does anyone really believe this nonsense?

Donald Trump does not understand… Bernie Sanders believes one’s birthright contains inclusive and exclusive surety… and Hillary Clinton is an amoral being, meriting (within her own mind) the authority and prestige therein.

Some Trump supporters are simply daft. Many are blatant opportunist. A few have just given up on the traditional politician. However, respective of the differing, most of the Trump supporters simply want what is best for America. There certainly is justification for their disgruntlement. The political class has not served this nation in the manner and form mandated by the constitution or good sense. Nonetheless, such justification does not warrant electing an ignorant demigod to the highest office in the land.

Donald is a prime example of cronyism. Of statutorily compliant corruptions, of buying influence, and valuing the result over the means he conclusively decides that NATO is no longer relevant. That our military outpost all over the world is just too costly, he argues that he is a harbinger. Did he foresee his four bankruptcies? Voting for Obama was puzzling, but Donald Trump as the leader of the free world, President of the United States! is an enigma beyond comprehension.

A vote for Trump is a vote for Hillary’s presidency…
