I still hear TV commentators allude to the “fact” that Donald Trump won the election because he is a fear monger and people listened to him and were scared out of their wits and voted for him. Nothing could be farther from the truth. He won because of money!
Yup, MONEY! Look at the US voting map, and you can see those with jobs and enough income to live voted to keep the same old politicians in office. Those that are suffering financially voted for someone who addressed their issues. Hillary feels none of the pain American’s that can’t pay their bills feel. Even now she is totally oblivious to the millions who are afraid of their future. The only politician in the Dem’s Party is Bernie Sanders, who sort on understands, when he talked about people and money and stated, correctly, 50% of Americans near retirement age have NO significant savings. That fact scares the hell out of millions of people.
The Dem’s talk about problems, state they will fix them, get angry and emotional – and blame the other guys = = = and then it’s business as usual. Do nothing, wait until the press get’s tired of reporting the problem and then move onto the next big issue.
Dem’s state facts: the middle class is not keeping up with inflation; the middle class is shrinking; the middle class needs to be reeducated; the middle class needs more government assistance – – – – on and on; but we just had eight years of FAILURE.
- People see that the Obama Presidency didn’t help them.
- People see that Hillary didn’t even know they existed and offered nothing
- Donald Trump talked about their financial pain and offered solutions
- Even if Prez Trump is wrong, at least he will try
What did people do: I think they said to themselves: “If I can’t feed my family, put a roof over their heads and clothes on their backs – I’ll make a deal with the Devil himself if I have to”
