Back in August I wrote the following blog on the Trump Effect: https://jpierro21blog.wordpress.com/2015/08/22/the-trump-effect/?iframe=true&theme_preview=true. I mention this because it is the main reason for the result of the presidential election. Donald Trump didn’t necessarily win the election based on specific policies or stances on certain issues, he won the presidency because he is not a politician and that is the message that came across loud and clear last night.
Politicians are lying, greedy, corrupt, hypocritical scumbags that use their power and the government to exploit the people for their own personal gain. That is simply a straight up fact. How can you possibly blame anyone for being disgusted with the current system? Donald Trump has hammered home this point over and over again. He’s called out politicians for being liars. He’s called them out for being corrupt criminals. He’s called them out for achieving nothing in Washington while being bought out by Wall Street and big corporations. Trump is a billionaire who will be in his 70s for most of his presidency. He could live out his life in retirement however he wanted, yet he chose to take on the most difficult job in the world because he, like many Americans, are sick of the government and needed a change.
Has Donald Trump always spoken like and acted like a great leader? Not necessarily, but that doesn’t matter. In fact, you could easily make the case that anti-Trump people are far more deplorable than Trump supporters. This entire election cycle has featured hatred and judgment from Democrats and supporters of Hillary Clinton. Being told that you are automatically a racist and sexist because you support Trump is extremely unfair and fueled the fire. Those supporting Trump gave a giant “Fuck you” to politicians, “Fuck you” to the media, “Fuck you” to all the hatred and judgment coming at them, and “Fuck you” to the PC liberal culture that is without a doubt ruining our country.
Whether you are happy with the election result or not, what happened last night is without a doubt a great thing for our country. If you were on the winning end, you know that a great opportunity for change awaits and all you can ask for is opportunity. If you were on the losing end, this should be a giant wakeup call and message from the people that American politics will not be tolerated in its current state. People would rather elect someone accused of sexual assault and discrimination than hear the same old bullshit lies and be taken advantage of by a corrupt government. If you are crying or protesting today, it is only reassuring those who voted for Trump that they made the right decision, because they don’t want to live in a world of crying sore loser babies who get offended by everything and protest anything that doesn’t benefit them personally.
In my personal opinion, not much will really change over the next four years. I am fortunate to be one of the few people that understands and realizes it, and I look forward to writing the blog about how I have been 100% correct on everything relating to politics this entire time.
