With Super Tuesday occurring yesterday and Bernie Sanders taking 2nd place to HRC and Donald Trump keeping his commanding lead over both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio I am having to face the facts that my politically ideology is not shared by the majority of my fellow American Citizens.
I really was convinced that Trump would fizzle out months ago, that his campaign would run its natural course and he would be the proverbial “flash in the pan”. Unfortunately as the weeks and months have ticked by his campaign has gained momentum and his hate has grown even stronger. He has said more outlandish and revolting things and yet his numbers have increased and his crowds have grown.
There is a great quote that is often bastardized but I have included the original here. “No one in this world as far as I know—and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. ” H. L. Mencken In my thinking that quote sums up his campaign in a nutshell. The American people are buying his crap hook line and sinker, and he is a true embarrassment to the Republican Party. That is saying a lot, they don’t usually need any help to be embarrassed they do fine on their own, but somehow they found him to do it for them this time.
Now on the Democratic side HRC, well I seem to be in the minority from the votes, but I don’t really want another Clinton in the White House. After all the flip flopping she has done and the Benghazi scandal she still walks around like she is heir apparent. I am really at a loss.
Somehow we have lost our way, and I don’t know how to get the voting public to understand that.
