I grew up on PP&M. I voted for Obama, twice.... but I can totally understand how this happened. We deserved this. We allowed Hillary to strongarm the primary with unethical means, and big money. She stole that from Bernie and we just let it happen because we were told to "get in line and shape up" because they wanted "most" of the same things. That by itself... not so bad. |
Add the Black Lives matter movement. On its own, harmless. But then the President, whom was voted in by a majority of Americans, black and while, starts shaking his finger at us "white middle class people" and telling us we are racist, and shame on us. That by itself, kinda Un-Presidental. He should be a uniter, not an instigator.
Obamacare. Every middle class person I know is bleeding dry of money from paying Healthcare. Them, and The ones that have jobs with private insurance are paying higher taxes to support "20 Million" (or whatever) people who would not have insurance otherwise. Of the people who ARE getting substitutes that I know, they are still paying HUGE monthly rates and premium that make it so even if they DO have a life threatening cancer or require surgery, wont be able to afford squat. Thats a HUGE deal, for a LOT of people.
Then there is Hillary. She should have been putting the interests she claimed to believe in and her Party ahead of her own ambition and need to break the glass ceiling. She surrounded herself with liars and rewarded a white woman DNC Chair who colluded with a job and abandoned a Black DNC chair replacement who colluded. Nobody called Most people I know are ok with a woman president. They watch TV shows and movie with Women presidents! for goodness sakes. She unethical, and thanks to Wikileaks we have PROOF she deals under the table and went against her Ethics agreement. Forget Benghazi. She is "crooked" to the core. Perhaps all politicians are, but there is more on her in those emails then any reasonable Republican could ever try get away with.
On top of that you have the Media, who APPEARED to be on hillary's side, but we never quite knew it for sure. We were suspicious, but they deny it. Other places it was quite clear who they were rooting for. THEN we find out CNN was wheeling and dealing.
Then in the last couple weeks everyone is saying "unless you vote for Hillary, you are a racist, bigot" People do not respond well to that kind of talk, least of all from our President. So yes, I can see people keeping their mouth shut and not saying who they are voting for and causing a huge "surprise" election.
Corruption, deception, lies, broken promises, more lies, emails, back stabbing, murders, suspicious deaths. Yup. Just like House of Cards.
If we don't like Trump we have 3 years to come up with someone BETTER.We have to tear down the system and rebuild it and fix it from the ground up. The system that put Hillary in power and allowed this to happen Obama's legacy needs to be hung from the rafters.
