    As far a jobs and labor goes, I tend to be capitalist and favor innovation in the workplace, I believe on some level that individuals who fear "losing their jobs" are often unable to innovate, adapt and add more value to their workplace, settling instead for boring, repetitive work or labor which is easily automated, regardless of industry (whether a job at a grocery store or a "technical" job, such as translation work, a so-called "corporate" job, or otherwise).

    In spite of mythos of "puritanical" work ethic, and archaic ideas such as "working hours" being a measure of productivity, I view most workers as lazy and immoral, unconcerned with adding any value to their company, so much as only putting in the bare minimum required effort hoping for something in return.

    Despite the romance of "Puritan" work ethic, the average member of Puritan England, was not likely a John Buyan, but rather an average man or woman, with much of the same lazy or immoral behavior as we see in the so called "working class" today, or the average sycophant of the wealthy, given that an actual "hard and intelligent" worker would be too busy so settle for sycophantly.

    If some workers lose their jobs, "Trump supporters" or otherwise, this may be in part because they deserved it, or are replaced by more earnest individuals.

    I say this as a failed entrepreneur and published author - most of what many degenerate Americans call "work" is so easy that a more intelligent individual could do it in their sleep - the "torture" is due to the self-induced boredom and moral apathy, not due to any "back breaking labor" like we might have heard of in North Korea, or the days of slavery.

    If may of these selfish degenerates kept their penis in their pants, and didn't have unplanned children which they can't support on their meager income, they wouldn't be in the situation they are today, the poverty trap is in part their own creation, and a result of their debauched and materialistic lifestyles. Self-discipline being a foreign notion to them.

    This is one of the major campaign selling points which Trump is known for if you haven't been living in a cave.

    If wastrels who are too lazy or unambitious to pursue any line of work other than pushing shopping carts or waiting tables lose their jobs to foreigners, that's just capitalism, and perhaps a bit of Darwinism in action.

    They'll eventually drift into outright communism, and start to believe that they're "entitled" to jobs by the virtue of being "white" or something, at the expense of more qualified others.

    I don't have a link, but are you seriously denying that dissuading fear of losing jobs hasn't been one of the Trump campaign's major selling points?

    So Trump runs on bringing factory / manufacturing jobs back to the US and closing our border down and you morph that into "Trump voters fear losing their jobs"?
    Am I understanding you correctly?

    That's an absurd idea of capitalism.

    "If it was socialism, wouldn't putting the 1% on the guillotine be better"?

    Is that the same 1% that creates all the jobs and pays all the taxes?
