He's leading polls in New York and in California. I don't see how he can be stopped on the way to the Republican nomination. The Trump momentum is real, and serious and really serious. This is no joke.
Why do people support Donald Trump?
I have my own theory. I had an insight during the administration of George W. Bush, post 9/11, when I realized that the ideal person perps would want, to steer idiots wrong through a complicated situation, was another idiot.
It became clear to me that the oligarchy had finally succeeded in "dumbing down" the American population to the point where a majority of them would believe any cockamamy story, no matter how ludicrous, as long as it was explained to them by someone on their level.
It was a chilling moment. I realized that the "truth movement" was doomed by the downward shift of the middle of the statistical bell curve of the national I.Q.
Decades of TV, football, on line porn, drugs, dance clubs and daytime televangelism had finally payed off.
The looting of the American economy by banks and the military industrial complex drove increasing numbers of people out of the work force completely or into very marginal jobs or term employment. More and more money migrated to the "oners", many of whom, shipped it offshore and out of the economy.
All very ominous.
However, I didn't see what was coming next, although there was a hint of it during the Obama administration, when there was some attempt to form a "national youth organization" reminiscent of Germany's "Hitler Youth" or the "Young Pioneers" of the Soviet Union.
The advent of Donald Trump clarified things for me. He put the spotlight on the fact that just as Germany, in the economically desperate 1920s, had reached a critical mass of people ready to rally around a dictatorial crackpot, America's population of the desperate and dumbed down, heading into the 2016 presidential election, has reached the critical mass required to make a gaudy, egomaniacal casino owner into a serious and very demagogic contender for president.
Webster Tarpley, of World Crisis Radio and tarpley.net, draws the parallels with fascism on the rise much more lucidly and in more detail than I do in an article at the following link.
Fascism – The Organized Violence and Terrorism of the 1% Against the People; Carried Out by Demagogues and Goons in the Service of Wall Street; To Understand Trump, Study the Mussolini Of 1921-22 and the Hitler of 1923 – Not Fascism in Power, but Fascism Struggling to Seize Power
