The Democrats, especially the leadership have really backed off and are offering little or no resistants to the President’s initiatives. They are giving up on the superficial issues like the border wall and his enforcement of federal immigration statutes. It appears that there will be no meaningful opposition to Trump by the Democrats in 2020. They will have a candidate but it will be understood from the outset that the candidate has no chance.
Why the change? Donald Trump has basically become a Democrat. The same moneyed interest control both parties. In fantasy free thinking people, like institutions, are defined according to how they function, and not according to how they are defined.
Trump now has multitudes of supporters. All but a few are fixated on superficial issues left over from his campaign and first year in office. These early impressions are deeply cemented in their minds. Don’t expect that to change. Politics from the top down is always focused on training the lower portion of the food chain to promote their own poverty. Try to exchange ideas with this crowd an see what you get. It will be sound bite after sound bite presented as sound reasoning. Many to most will be laced with profanity directed towards anyone who offers criticism of their esteemed leader. Minds are closed and all new information is rejected.
As this mindset continues, Trump is moving ahead with Keynesian deficit spending initiatives which are really income transferring engines which transfer wealth from the bottom of the food chain to the top. The benefits go to all who successfully lobby to create feeding frenzies which result in government spending going into new programs. The tariffs, of course, will create enough inflation to pass the burden of the federal debt onto the backs of ordinary citizens. These are things that any Democrat would do. The elite are now pleased enough with Trump, so the Democrats are backing off. You can now expect Hollywood and the rest of the entertainment industry to start backing off of him also. All who are used to feeding off of government initiatives know that the flow of food in their troughs will not be interrupted.
Trump has not betrayed you. Trump is doing what presidents do. Representation goes to the highest bidder. You have just been outbid.
