The “pendulum” diagram below summarizes the direction in which this nation has been heading for about the last 100 years; inexorably drifting leftwards. It also suggests the hope for a potential Trump presidency; would it, could it, halt the slide? Not simply slow the rate of it, as one might argue has happened intermittently over the last century, but actually STOP it? Why might he be able to do it? Because he can bypass and destroy media narratives and expose and tear down the Washington D.C. elitist cabal; at least this is the hope and I believe this is what drives a lot of his support. This is the potential opportunity here but there is a lot of work to be done to undo the various power grabs of the federal government (my list is here). With the right selection for a VP that is, a conservative, we could then seriously begin to start moving the pendulum to the right.
M1: Mr. Sanders, great crowds, a resonating message out there. You seem to be leading a movement.
B: Why, yes; thank you.
M1: You won New Hampshire and some how received less delegates than Mrs. Clinton.
B: Yes, those are the rules.
M1: Do you miss the irony here, Sir?
B: What? What do you mean?
M1: The socialism you preach…
B: Right, right, from those who have to those who haven’t! Absolutely!
M1: There you go, that’s exactly what’s happening with your votes. See, you win the votes but your opponent receives the benefits. It’s like seizing stuff from someone who works and handing it over, at no cost, to someone who won’t…love it, right?
B: That’s right! I look at Sweden, Norway, Denmark; those are my models!
M1: Really? What do you say to Sean Penn, Michael Moore and others in your party who’d prefer the Cuba and Venezuela models?
B: Exercise patience! We’ll get there!
M1: So, why are you still in the race?
B: I’ve got a great message! See my crowds? I can still win this thing!
M1: Sir, are you too dumb to understand that you’re never going to win? You are a designated loser!
B: Of course I can! What kind of question is that?
M1: Let me put it this way, dumbass, if delegates were dollars, you are being taxed at one of those rates you advocate and you know where those “tax dollars” are going?
M1: You think you can now explain why you’ll be a loser to the countless morons who follow you?
B: I am being mugged! I am feeling the burn!
B: Yes but don’t tell them that…
