The Real Problem

The latest Harvard/Harris Poll has President Trump with a 48% approval rating. In other words, about half of the population of this country approves of him as President. And if the margin of error is 3%, there is the possibility that the majority of Americans now approve of him. The problem with this, of course, is that Donald Trump is about as perfect an example of the worst kind of human being that any civilization could produce. The fact that half of the country not only sees no real issue here, but actually approves of this type of individual as Chief of State, Commander-in-Chief, Chief Executive, Chief Diplomat and Chief Legislator etc, indicates a fundamental problem that neither impeachment nor even removal from office meaningfully addresses or resolves.

As long as our culture continues to create a population of so corrupt and debased a sensibility, that it is no longer capable of moral discrimination on even so basic a level, the underlying issues will continue to erode the very essence of what it means to be an American.

Thank God for President Trump

Half of the people in the USA are stupid idiots and not much can be done about that. This country will be a dead door nail by 2030. Now if by chance a pole was made including people under 40 years old there may be hope left, I HOPE!

Progressives can't seem to grasp the idea that almost half the country voted for Trump, not because they liked the guy or because they thought he was a paragon of virtue. It was because Trump was the only candidate that said he would protect the American worker from having their job sent to China and being replaced at home by cheap labor from some low wage Third World country. He also said we screwed up in Iraq, Libya and Syria and we should reduce our military presence overseas. These were all core issues with Joe Sixpack. Since the election two things have become evident: the radical Left has taken control of the Democratic Party, abandoning the working taxpayer and turned them into the party representing the interests of illegal aliens. Trump is obviously owned by Sheldon Adelson representing the interests of Benjamín Netanyahu and the Israeli colonizers. This explains his 180 degree turn on Middle-East policy and the presence of Bolton and his Likud son-in-law in the White House. Progressives need to stop assuming that people who disagree with them do so because of ignorance and realize that many people what a government that works for the national interest, not Globalism.

Al is correct, but he offers no analysis why people still like Trump or what we can do to remedy the problem.

Trump made all sorts of promises about jobs, national interest, and ending militarism. They were almost all lies.
