UPDATE: HE WON, I WAS WRONG. STILL A GOOD ARTICLE!
We never discuss politics on my blog, but hey... you can only talk about sound fx, compressors and reverb so much right? The rise of Donald Trump and his powerful grassroots following makes me feel obligated to share my most unbiased, honest opinion on the man and the future of the Presidency of the United States in general. I'm growing tired of Anderson Cooper and the lackeys at Fox News having all the fun while not stating the obvious. I gotta say this and then I'm not gonna talk about Donald Trump anymore, deal? Okay, you ready?
DONALD J. TRUMP IS NEVER GOING TO BE PRESIDENT.
I know some of you are fearful of a Trump Presidency, and some of you support him to the core, but I promise you, unequivocally, 100% certain, in my opinion, he is not running to win the Presidency.
Firstly, it's all a very well executed, Machiavellian plan actually. I'm also pretty sure the mastermind of this plan is within the Clinton camp or connected in some way in my opinion. Cause a class division and warfare within the republican party led by a billionaire? Oh the irony! You can't make up a more bizarre scenario if you were writing a script for a made-for-television movie. Seriously.
He's running as a "plant" so that the person who the kingmakers want to win is guaranteed to win and also to destroy the Republican party in the process in my opinion. It's a 2-for-1-deal. When it's all over Trump will be rewarded with more lucrative book deals, outrageous speaking fees, and a continued rogue, yet powerless political voice and influence to divide and make the now numerous right-wing factions eat each other alive.
Secondly, the foreign and domestic policy ideas he has put forth would NEVER be allowed to happen by the agencies that are actually more powerful than the President himself.
EXAMPLE: Implementing the tariffs he wants to impose on other countries to combat trade deficits were one of the main causes of the great depression in the early 1900's, the Federal Reserve and every other executive-powered, bureaucratically controlled agency not bound by the constitution or controlled by congress would never let him or congress do it. It's kinda like when a candidate says "I'm going to audit the Federal Reserve once elected!" Yeah right, never gonna happen.
Building a wall on the Mexican border? Never going to happen, if you want to know why that's something you need to research, but I assure you there isn't a wall for lots of obvious reasons.
Removing military from the Korean peninsula? Never will happen in your lifetime or your children's lifetime. There are geopolitical reasons we are there in that region of the world in a semi-permanent- capacity that will not be dismantled by a single Presidency regardless of who it is.
Replacing Obamacare with "something better"? The affordable care act is not without it's critics but it's also not without it's supporters. Presenting a vague plan to remove a law that covers millions of people to replace it with "something much better" is scary prospect for not only a multitude of people currently covered but also a cloud of uncertainty for an industry worth billions upon billions in revenue. Big pharma and the medical industry (and it's lobbyist) aren't into a guessing game as far as their potential revenue or a "simon says" style overhaul of the industry they spent so much time gaming and manipulating the American people to get the ACA/Obamacare passed in the first place. Follow the money and you begin to understand more why candidates are hand-picked and not rogue billionaires who can't be bought running for office.
Lastly, the media coverage and over-scrutiny of Mr. Trump given that he is running against candidates with sketchy records at best and criminal records at worst, gives the true reveal that he is not the media-ordained, pre-selected 2016 Presidential candidate. It's pretty obvious in my opinion who has this election in the bag, but I'm trying to stay neutral here.
It's all a show with real results that will negatively affect or destroy the two-party system forever. It's all part of the plan. People's insecurities, biases, and phobias are being used against them in the form of extreme, rogue candidates (on BOTH sides) who are only in place to tilt the scales towards the "bought-and-paid-for" candidate. Take a screenshot and on Nov. 4th, 2016 come back and tell me I'm wrong.
