A conservative writer named Alex CAntellanos explained the appeal of Donald Trump.
We have the largest government we’ve ever had, and yet it governs nearly nothing. Not our economy, which is stagnant. Not our place in the world, where we have lost respect. Not our fiscal affairs, where we have been rendered destitute. Not our borders, made of smoke. Not our health care, rendered increasingly unaffordable by a cynically named “Affordable Care Act.”
The list of big, old, factory-like government’s broken promises is unending. Everything Washington’s elite said they would deliver, from better race relations and peace in our inner cities, to stability abroad, ends up both a larger challenge and more expensive.
We have been scammed — and we know it.
Our ruling class cannot see that their forest of quixotic promises has been stripped bare, but the American people can see nothing else. These woods are leafless now, barren of accomplishment.
Given a forced choice, I would pick either Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. He advocates policies that only a military dictator could implement.
But it is precisely the failed policies that Bush and Clinton represent, and would continue, that cause people to turn to Donald Trump.
Trump is the strongman we don’t need by Alex Castellanos for CNN. I don’t think any actual socialist considers what we have in the USA today as “socialism”. I’d call it “corporatism.” Otherwise I pretty much agree with this article.
