How to deal with Trump

What a lot of Americans — Republican and Democrat alike — have been dreading, has arrived. After yesterday’s primary, Donald Trump is now within only a few votes of being the Republican candidate for President this coming November.

For the first time — with but one exception — a total outsider to politics has stormed the scene. Unlike Eisenhower, though, whose diplomacy was learned in wartime and who became a wise and perceptive president, Trump — a property developer only — brings little except for simplistic solutions to complex problems in fast-changing times and a capacity for personal invective.

He’s exactly the sort of candidate the Founding Fathers wanted to protect America from when they wrote the Constitution — but didn’t succeed in this case.

Could Trump become president? Yes, of course he could, if he quickly gets expert advisers around him as soon as possible before the election campaign itself gets under way. And if he wins, he could be a dangerous president internationally. Some way would then have to be found of impeaching him, I guess.

  1. I think Trump will be good for the US. The system needs a bit of shaking up. The Republicans and the Democrats — Tweeledum and Tweeledee — have messed it up with their shadow boxing. A disruption will dislodge the status quo and perhaps push the moribund system to a different (and likely better) equilibrium. Granted that Trump is no visionary leader with wisdom oozing out of him. But he is the mild heart attack that jolts a person to take a serious look at his life and turn things around.

  2. Tweedledum and Tweedledee
    Agreed to have a battle;
    For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
    Had spoiled his nice new rattle.

    Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
    As black as a tar-barrel;
    Which frightened both the heroes so,
    They quite forgot their quarrel.

    Trump is the monstrous crow.

  3. I agree. Worry about Trump is overstated. The entrenched, encrusted establishments of both parties should worry. Deals, pay offs, contracts, lobbyists are all up for grabs if Trump takes over. But it is time to re-shuffle the deck. Give Trump at least a one term chance. The alternative is to have the Clintons back in the WH. Yes Bill C as well. So vote for change and hope. Or vote for more of the same with liar enabler Hillary, sexual bully Bill and their simple minded daughter Chelsea. I hate this term but for me its a “no brainer”.
