I had to stop blaming Trump supporters/voters, once I realized I was turning my anger to the wrong party. After all, this vote accounted for HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of the people in this country. People like you and me, who were tired of being dicked around and neglected by its leaders and establishment. Yes, it may be very easy for some of us to see thru the reality show character’s lies but obviously for many others it wasn’t and I had to think, why is that? Maybe because we have a public education system funded and founded by men like J.D. Rockefeller who said, “In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present education conventions of intellectual and character education fade from their minds and unhampered by tradition we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into men of learning or philosophers, or men of science. We have not to raise up from them authors, educators, poets or men of letters, great artists, painters, musicians, nor lawyers, doctors, statesmen, politicians, creatures of whom we have ample supply. The task is simple. We will organize children and teach them in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.
~ First mission statement of the J.D. Rockefeller-endowed General Education Board in 1906
The Trump effect is just that, an EFFECT, due to the root problem; our government (the DNC to be specific in this case) and its greedy, small minded, manipulative ways. And in some twisted, ass backwards way, this really is a victory to the People by the People because they were able to defy odds, come together, and overthrow the whole damn establishment. Unfortunately, it was the wrong anti-establishment candidate.
We could have had Bernie Sanders, a man who truly was and still is for the People and has spent most of his life doing so, without managing to get involved in lawsuits and reality show worthy drama. But the DNC made damn sure that wasn’t gonna happen and now they’re reaping what they sow. Sadly, the rest of this country is also gonna have to pay the price for their colossal error. This is what greed is and does.
Still, I choose love and unity, because it’s the only thing that will get us all out of this, together. And as horrible as this all appears to be, and as bad as it most likely will get, I see hope, and this lesson; never give up, because it can ALWAYS GET much, MUCH WORSE. This is one big reality check, served, ironically, by a reality show star. It’s now up to us to choose whether we will learn and grow from this lesson for the sake of our future, or repeat our mistakes over and over. Choose Love.
“Love will keep us together”
