58 percent of Americans say they “don’t identify with what America has become,” according to a recent Reuters survey. 53 percent of Americans say that they “feel like a stranger” in their own country. The majority of these folks are white and members of the working class who both party’s establishments view as little more than lepers. These folks don’t care for Obamacare, and they do not want their culture swept away forever by an ever swelling tsunami of illegal immigrants. They respect the Founders, the Constitution and revere the First and Second Amendments. They know that the number of Americans on permanent disability is at an all-time high, the number of Americans not in the labor force is at an all-time high and that the number of Americans on food stamps is at an all-time high…as is the national debt. They also know that her military is a shell of what it was only a few short years ago.
This leads to entirely understandable hatred of the establishment elites, which is the single most important driving force in this election cycle.
And to the phenomenal rise of Donald Trump. Many of us thought that a Trump presidential nomination was improbable at best. Yet, due to the breathtaking cravenness and irrationality of the Republican establishment, it is extremely likely that- one week from today- the Donald will be a fait accompli.
