Donald Trump being elected President is right up there with 9/11 and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It’s shocking and baffling and a concentrated act of pure evil. Or maybe it’s more like the attack of Fort Sumter. The first shot in a new American Civil War. The media, for the most part, are talking about Trump’s plans and how difficult it would be for him to go through with them. They are still thinking of Donald Trump as a normal person, a normal President that will play by the rules. Donald Trump doesn’t have to play by the rules. He’s proved that over and over again.
Let’s start with deporting around ten million people. The rational media says it would be far too expensive to do. Not so. All Trump has to do is hand out the brown shirts and ask them to report anyone they think is in America illegally. Sixty Million plus American Citizens would freely jump on that bandwagon. Are you now or have you ever been? We are entering a new era of Americans hating other Americans and doing everything they can to harm them.
I’ve said for the past couple of years that Trump supporters don’t want a President, they want a Dictator. They want a Ceasar or a Napoleon or a Hitler to take charge and kick ass. But most of them don’t know enough about history to know what happened to those leaders and their followers.
Common sense would say that Trump and his redneck revolution aren’t going to do anything. No wall, no mass deportations, no bombing the shit out of anyone, no reshaping of the Supreme Court or rewriting of the US Constitution. But common sense has nothing to do with Trump and his bring back the 1950s revolution.
In the worst case scenario, this is the end of the United States of America. There will be no more elections. We will start killing each other in earnest. The rednecks have every reason to think they will win this war. They have all the guns. And President Trump will have all those lovely Cold War era Nukes. End of the world, anyone? This Civil War will leave no one behind to start over. And the rednecks will be fine with that as well.
So what will really happen? That’s what makes this election so damned scary. No one knows what will happen. Trump might just twiddle his thumbs for four years and tweet about how mean everyone is in Washington. Someone might shoot him before he can do anything. Maybe he will do something to bring jobs back to America. Maybe he’ll repair the roads and make the trains run on time. Maybe he’ll sell America on the open market and make Hawaii his own private resort. Anything could happen. And that’s not a good thing.
But Trump is just a symptom, not the disease. The cancer is the sixty million people who voted him into power. I didn’t like Nixon or Reagan or Bush. But I never felt like the people who voted for them were traitors plotting for the destruction of America. I feel like Trump supporters are.
