    THe left has come up with their answer to the upset in the 2016 election.

    ANd it is to focus on the politics of personal destruction is an attempt to distract from the real issues where they have no answers at all.

    This is what this election was really about, as opposed to the nonsense the left is spouting.

    For most workers, real wages have barely budged for decades

    Send jobs overseas, increase imports, high immigration, all policies that in hindsight seem designed to screw the working and middle classes.


    Trump is committed to reversing all three of those. That is what drove him through the primaries despite all the Political Class and their jackals in the media could throw at him.

    What the election was about was a total repudiation of 0bama, his legacy, the left in general, and Hillary Clinton.

    It's bigger than that.

    NOte the similarity of the outsider leading a rebellion in the party, in both parties.

    This election was a repudiation of the bi partisan consensus on a number of issues, such as Trade, Immigration and Foreign policy.

    To many it was about survival, economically. The income gap widens, the jobs are leaving. The one or two truck, trucking company is getting more and more paperwork to deal with. The small fish boat owner is regulated as to when, where, why and how he fishes. The guy that worked at a production company was laid off and now he works at a mini-mart or landscapes for low wages. The small business owner is using the small electricity that you and I are using and paying triple the costs, same goes for the sewer, the natural gas, the internet access and so on.

    in other words no one is looking out for the guy that gets up everyday, goes to work, owns a job or has to take a lower paying job because the economy dictates it. That is who was heard on election day and whether you like it or not, they won a voice.

    So when the liberals were worried about gay rights, about transgenders using a bathroom, that occupy wall st kids were wanting freebies, they went to work, they went and bought food, clothing and housing and wanted to make sure their future was going to allow them to keep money and their jobs, so they can work until they retire.

    Now, do I think Trump is the answer? No, but he was better than the same old song and dance that has been in office for the last 16 years, four more under Clinton meant nothing.

    if Trump doesn't do it, no one will.

    The dems will keep bringing in Third World voters till that voice that got heard is drowned out and is never heard from again.
