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.
