A storm is brewing

“Anyone who thinks my story is anywhere near over is sadly mistaken.”

Donald J. Trump


Unfortunately I believe Mr. Trump is right. It looks like there is only one man/woman standing between him and presidency. That alone is a dire sign of American politics. Not being satisfied with the current crop of politicians and their actions has led to this strange situation, where not being like the current establishment of party politicians appears to be sufficient to qualify as president of the United States.

Mr. Trump’s controversial remarks on aliens, Muslims, women, and the lack of specific policies have not deterred his supporters. What does that tell us?

“Make America Great Again” is the slogan of his campaign. I think America is already great, if you value things other than just money.

Maybe not just our leaders need to change, but also us, the people.

Hopefully we will end up with a candidate that genuinely cares about the well being of people more than profit, growth, and revenues. America is not a corporation. Life is not a business.

  1. Ditto to that!
    (and the same applies in most countries).
    While public figures (aka Donald Trump) continue to make highly inflammatory and controversial remarks, civil unrest and bigotry will continue to divide the country.

    Tolerance towards other peoples of differing religion, culture and gender can only result in a genuine move towards a positive and more caring society. How can man create a sustainable future if he can’t respect those who are different to him/her and live in a sustainable society.

    Ultimately all people what to be happy. Happiness is formed through positive action and positive thought, not negative action and prejudice.

    Until Donald Trump leans how to recognise a great nation, how can he possibly lead it.

      • Yea, me too. I had thought about putting up a “Please don’t spam me with political posts” on Facebook, but this guy is makes it tempting if not necessary to call him out.
