Fearing a Trump presidency is like fearing what color sign lights will be used in the next big Las Vegas Casino. While money and labor is involved,
and certainly illegal activities behind the scenes intended to change economic revenues, very little changes about how people live out their day to
day lives, unless you happen to be a lighting electrician for casinos, or own the reservation land that is being confiscated to build one.
Trump is most like the behind the scenes Russian oligarchs that led Russia out of the rubble of the end of the cold war. While he has enemies and
friends in the international community, and certainly has an impact, he is not the kind of person who desires unpleasant war, or likes to stir up
trouble that won't improve his bottom line. Trump is the most consistent candidate in the Republican party, and possibly the most consistent of them
all. His presentation is virtually identical to the hypothetical presentation to Oprah Winfrey in the 1980s, available for viewing on youtube. The
main difference is brown hair and less wrinkles. Politically, Trump hasn't changed very much since his independent party support during the rise and
fall of Ross Perot. It was called the reform party.
Examine the tenets of that party:
1. Maintaining a balanced budget, ensured by passing a Balanced Budget Amendment and changing budgeting practices, and paying down the federal
2. Campaign finance reform, including strict limits on campaign contributions and the outlawing of the Political action committee
3. Enforcement of existing immigration laws and opposition to illegal immigration
4. Opposition to free trade agreements like the North American Free Trade Agreement and Central America Free Trade Agreement, and a call for
withdrawal from the World Trade Organization
5. Term limits on U.S. Representatives and Senators
6. Direct election of the United States President by popular vote
7. Federal elections held on weekends
Tenet 3: Illegal immigration. That's Trump's Wall.
Tenet 4: Opposition to Trade Agreements that benefit foreigners at the expense of American workers. There's your Carrier Air Conditioning Union
Tenet 6: The idea that popular votes should have real impact on elections. Case in point, Colorado Caucus. You probably noticed Bernie Sanders also
stands to gain from this point.
Tenet 2: Notice how Trump likes to be mostly self funding, and lambasts candidates that appear to be puppets and the existence of superpacs?
What people have the most to gain from this analysis is the complete lack of opinion on subjects such as abortion, gender issues, race, religion, and
education. If you think Trump has strong Democrat or Republican feelings on these other issues, you would be misreading the political ideology that is
Trump does have concerns not listed here, but they are reactionary, and frankly human. His experience in Europe told him the immigration and Islamic
problem there was going to be bad, and it was. That's not a political opinion, it's a personal anecdote. His notion of wanting a restoration of
Christian values isn't because he's an Evangelical Christian, but because he reads stories about the war on Christmas, sees the familiar statues and
monuments torn down, and is accosted by those who demand he change familiar patterns of traditions. A person does not have to be Buddhist to be
disturbed to see Islamic terrorists using explosives to destroy a giant Buddhist statue traditionally considered a world heritage site.
Trump became a billionaire during the cold war. Now he is running for president and sees a communist North Korea firing missiles and detonating atomic
bombs. He sees the middle eastern terrorists making a strong effort at forming a caliphate state, and he sees a trade deal by the current president
that is enabling a nuclear Iran. This is where Trump's belief in the Nuclear Threat comes from. It is not because he is a warmonger or hawk. Likewise,
growing rich during the 1980s, he looks to the example of Ronald Reagan for solutions, and remembers the Berlin Wall coming down, remembers the strong
American military with it's extremely expensive space aged technology, and believes that is probably what will work once more.
Trump sees Bruce Jenner, and a South Carolina Governor, and being far passed retirement age has little opinion on the matter. But when he sees the 40%
drop in the manufacturing, the shutdown of power plants and mines, the reduction of production of steel, documentaries on places like Flint Michigan,
etc., with each issue, he is simply doing what anyone who reads several news articles each day would do. He draws his own conclusions and formulates
If it's not part of the subjects listed in the above tenets, or things he said he would probably do while talking to Oprah, you can be sure that his
opinion on the matter is not political, it is reactionary to all the reports on the issue, the media, and the letters and conversations he receives
personally. In this way, on these issues, like gender, war, ISIS, common core, gun control, and health care, Trump is just like the Tay Artificial
Whatever you, the people tell him to worry about, he's going to exemplify those thoughts, not because he has an agenda, but because that's just the
opinion of either the masses, or the logical conclusion one might expect from skimming dozens of news articles on the topic. Many people are reading
way too deeply into these issues. Trump would not bother trying to fix these other issues unless it was blatantly obvious that any intelligent person
would do something about it if they could. They are not native to his Reform Party Agenda.
