Being from Canada I was never really into politics, never leaned a certain way, never really cared to be honest. Being an avid lurker here for well
over a decade I've never felt compelled enough to sign up let alone start a thread.
But here I am, after being merely a spectator for so long watching the back and forth between the left and right and everything in between. The only
thing I know for certain is there is a definite divide and either side only grows more stubborn the further they are.
Both sides are hyprocrits, both sides are biased and both sides have clearly made up their minds regardless of what is in front of their face. This is
Having said that, coming into this with a completely unbias view I noticed the more I looked into this, the more my common sense pushed me towards the
right. Now what that entails I couldnt even tell you but what I do know is that the democratic party and the elitist left conglomerate
(news,media,entertainment,etc) has made it very easy to lean the other way.
While here on ATS it was the same back and forth rhetoric all day long, that when you really step back and look at it all you will see is "me me, you
you, him this him that, she this she that" really its like 2 children arguing, but you get the point.
Now the point of this thread was I wanted to present a view that I haven't seen expressed yet. Trumps Legacy
A constant rhetoric expressed here from the left is he is ultimately conning us, in it for his brand, money etc etc. But I thought about it..
Does trump need money? Of course not
Does trump need to increase his brand? Nope
Does trump need more power? Don't think so
Now you could have easily answered yes to all of those but when you take his legacy into consideration its hard not to think he is actually
Here is an incredibly successful man reaching the last quarter of his life that doesnt need to do anything only to want to become president so he can
con the world and become the most hated american in history? Destroying his legacy?
Sure he has an ego and is a narcissist, and that's why he cares about his legacy. He knows he has a chance to do something great and along the way
become great himself. Let's be honest here, considering all the odds against him, if he really is an outsider fighting the establishment for the
people and he is successful, how does he not go down as the greatest president in history? Imagine what this does for his legacy? And you better
believe he cares about his legacy..
Now I'm aware this is the mud-pit..
So I brought a bucket in my left hand and a handful of mud in my right. *hides behind bush*
