Kirk Gallaway Posted August 24, 2020 Share Posted August 24, 2020 Some good points.Actually the parties use to have much more control than they do now, and nominees were often settled with horse trading in smoke filled rooms. Things have gotten worse, the power of money is everywhere.The political system is corrupt to the core. That was once a matter of greater agreement of both political parties, before Trump. But Trump is so overt, hes brought it out in the open and dared his party to take a stand against it, and they won't. "Were Obama’s people surveilling Trumps 2016 campaign?" The FBI was, with good reason. So you can snarkily say, the whole system is so corrupt why pick on Trump? Trump is a complete loose canon. The spectacle of the current week is Trump hiring a Postal inspector with ties to the USPS's competitors to sabotage the mail in voting necessary in the current pandemic in the coming election because it's well known that the greater the voter turnout, the more likely Trump will lose. So in essence,tampering with the election. As lax as it may seem rightly seem, that the American public would allow great corruption in the political process, there are still people who uphold a cherished right to vote. On the positive side, you can point out Trump's corruptions are just part of the natural outgrowth of a corrupt system and maybe lead to a movement when we finally get the money out of politics. I'm not holding my breathe, but that's more a possibility than it was 4 years ago.. Another silver lining from the Trump experience is those of us who rail against massive amounts of taxpayer going to fund the American War machine, to the point that we concoct huge narratives of hopelessness before the almighty "deep state" should be encouraged by Trump's election, that we can simply throw these people out. There was the stubbornly held view by Trump supporters that Trump was a peacenik. Now most of those die hards concede he's been co opted by the system. But historic statements from Trump reaffirm he was never a peacenik anyway. Nobody says it's going to be easy. People should take heart now that it is possible to overthrow the system , but with a person with some geopolitical knowledge, some underlying philosophy rather than being lead around by the nose by a news organization in a time of national crisis, some knowledge of political philosophy in part utilized by reading as to assess the proper people to have around him to initiate policy,some threadbare knowledge the world around him, and the concerns of others, whose not quite so inept and corrupt, blah blah blah.
