I thought I would try something new here on IST…..I will give a short summation of what I observed for the day….if it don’t work then I will move on……
I have writing this blog for about 10 years and in 2008 I observed that Obama was not the “change and hope” that voters were looking for (check the archives if you doubt my word) and I feel the same about a Donald Trump president.
So far he is backing off some of his campaign promises and NO one on the Right is concerned that they were lied to for their vote. Instead most are fixated on the protests…as if nothing matters when it comes to Trump.
It is beginning to look like the main driver of the election was hate…..turn Americans against Americans….there is NO push back on his re-nigging on campaign promises….hate is still being spouted wrapped in the American flag…..but now it is aimed at protesters.
So far nothing I have seen coming out of the Trump transition would lead me to believe anything else.
I will agree that we need to move on……Trump was elected just like Obama was….do not slip into the hateful crap that the Right spewed for 8 years.
If Trump is a pragmatic person then we must give him a chance…..with that said….we MUST STAY vigilant.
On a closing note–I am thinking about bringing back the Assie Award, an award that I gave up in 2012 for there was little interest in it….but this election has proved that it could be a popular post for IST.
