Search the entire country and try to find a single Trump supporter who is trying to repeal a single law. Find one who is trying to close a single government agency. Find one who is trying to put a stop to the practice of war for profit. You can’t find one, not one in the entire country. The conservative movement in this country has degenerated down to a bunch of insecure ignorant, stupid people searching for messiahs. There are none.
Self government requires citizens to think with the larger part of their brains. It isn’t happening. These are nothing but a bunch of lost animals looking for a bigger more powerful animal to protect them from what the perceived other side will do to them. This is not at all different than a huge herd of sheep seeking the biggest ram to square off against danger while they all run to the center of the herd.
What a bunch of hypocrites. These are the socialists who won’t look at themselves. They get more in government benefits than folks who are on regular welfare. All a person has to do to accomplish that is buy a new home and take advantage the huge discounted mortgage rate government provides them. Such a benefit is made possible by monetary policy which cheats grandmother out of the rightful return on her savings and gives it to Goldman Sachs and the rest of the international banking community.
These are folks who thrive on big government, want fewer benefits for others, and want to personally protect themselves from free market competition. They want free market competition for everyone in the country besides themselves.
Don’t think of Trump supporters as friends of the free market system. They are nothing of the kind. Their interest is in protecting their own government benefits while taking them away from everyone else. The system of socialism they are currently embracing is destroying wealth faster than it can be created. They worry about AOC, Bernie and other classic socialist crowding in on their hoggins. Admitted socialists will get nowhere. Modern socialism, the kind that unapologetically takes from the poor and gives to the rich, is so entrenched, the classic kind will never be seen in a prosperous country.
A Trump supporter is a modern socialist. Make no mistake. Conservatives do conservative things. Trump supporters do not do conservative things. I study what actually happens in real life. Institutions are what they are after they have been transformed by the manifestations of self interest. An institution is what it is and not what it was intended to be.
