There has never been presidential elections in the history of United States like this year. No candidate has ever bragged “I will shot someone on the street and still win elections.” Remember Donald Trump said this few weeks ago in front of the cameras? And that was not the only gape from him, he also said, “Mexico is sending rapists across the border,” “John McCain is a war hero because he was captured,” and to Fox anchor Megyn Kelly ” you can see blood coming out of her eyes.” One should think this is enough to run him out the race, but his populate moves up a notch with every badmouthing. Why?
It is obvious something extraordinary is happening, perhaps the gods of the little people who survived the Great Floods are coming back to cheerlead the GOP flummoxed electorates….. “From the squats gods of Mexico and Peru to the fairy kingdom of Europe to the blond pygmies of Madagascar, on every continent of the world they are remembered as the masters of the stone carving, agriculture, navigation, writing, and shamanic healing, and known as ‘hobbit’ people (The Lost History of the Little People: Their Spiritually Advanced Civilizations around the world) . Yes, they are coming back to participate in the titanic tremors of 2016 elections; to witness the unexpected unfold throwing the elite political establishment off board. And political pundits life jackets cannot safe them, and they are about run out of options.
Among those pulling away from political center and business as usual are the millennials worried of school loans and not guaranteed jobs after college; people who have lost jobs and small businesses that was once a vibrant fabric of the middle class; and those who worked hard throughout their lives to save for retirement only to lose everything to Ponzi schemes manufactured in Wall Street. As if this was not enough shock, the Supreme Court cracked open a canyon of cash to purchase elections. This tilted the scale, political elite swindled their way to the top with help of well oiled bourgeois pushing the common man out of the way.
Phrases commonly used by the political elite and their super PACs sponsors, such as, “the American people have a small memory, we can hand pick the nominee and by the time elections comes around they will rally behind the stooge.” Unfortunately they underestimated the American people’s anger this time around. The anger has been simmering in every election cycle without either party giving a feasible solution to the stressed economy, instead they embarked on election campaign right from 2008 and 2012 after titanic upset to Mitt Romney by President Obama. Remember the slogan “President Obama is one term president?” The GOP never recovered and as the result sixteen candidates threw in their fishnets, including Donald Trump, greatest tormentor of the “establishment” with unconventional barbs and tit bits. Basically saying, “the hell with politically correct scripts.” What was considered a laughing-stock is biting deep into the jugular with suffocating jugular GOP (vein) thrombosis. They have no medicine for the malady, in fact crude intervention is in cards; “GOP has to be stop Trump by all means,” Trump cannot be the president,” “rather a democrat instead of Trump.” The mega-donors have their tails between their legs after a well funded super establishment candidate bowed out in humiliation, Jeb Bush. The tied has taken a reverse course and political elite have no answer to the titanic turbulences of the people and for the people. The political trend point clearly to the unknowns and November will be a mother of all election shocks. No career politician candidates can say with validity ‘they are safe’, political terrain is fuliginous and catastrophic in nature. Therefore this year’s elections no pollsters can precisionly predict the out come, try the candidates who have dropped out (maybe?).
What is the end game? Allow ‘the people’ to elect candidates who are for the people and compassionate enough to fight against perennialism politics.
