This will be my last couple of days to post on trying to explain the Trump victory….the American people have spoken…well the electoral college has spoken….I will focus on my forte…international relations and conflict management……that is unless something spectacular comes to light and then I will have to weigh in……after all I am an opinionated SOB.
The dream is DEAD! This was the closest a woman will get to the White House in my lifetime…..of course I reserve the right to contradict myself…..it is the American way…..
There are millions of people waking up this day and scratching their heads at the loss of the election by Clinton and many are asking one simple question……what happened?
Complicated? Americans just elected to the presidency a candidate who the vast majority don’t like and consider dishonest, lacking the temperament and the experience to lead the country. They chose him even as broad majorities oppose his signature policies from building a wall to mass deportations to tax cuts for the rich and corporations. Complicated doesn’t begin to describe it. Here are some common-sense reflections on this political tsunami.

Personally, I seldom underestimate the capable voter to demand change…..but the change they demand is seldom real change….just change at the top…..as far as society goes it is never about that…..
The Dems have to an “autopsy” on party politics…apparently what they are doing now is not working……I mean they have lost all control in the states….if they have an agenda then it is not what the American people want….time to buck up and do the right thing……ask the people what is important…..not Wall Street.
Another thing to watch is the GOP…..will they fall in-line with the Trump vision or will they work against him…..my guess is they are cowards and will forgo their principles for the cushy crap offered by Trump.
My major concern is Pence……as a VP he has some power…he is a theocratic politician and I see some religious rights being stepped on…..
