Raj, he didn't know Fck all about running an election campaign but he apparently does know something about reading the ground more accurately than Killary and all the political pundits in NYC and Washington DC did. He did know just how angry the ground was. DC & Killary didn't have a clue.

Its the lawyers, media, lobbyists who thrive with the big gov demoncrats who couldn't take it this time. Bleeding liberals and unfortunately general public too fell for the hyped up mass hysteria. Trump won fair and square on this one

Trump has blasted the Republican hierarchy from day 1 as well.

Hardly anything he said tallied with anything the mainstream Republican candidates said.

Maybe Trump gonna be Independent of everyone. :mrgreen:

I understand where you are coming from , but can you tell me how the "Demoncrats" as you call it are any different to the Republicans when it comes to "Pork barrel" politics and filling the pockets of Lawyers/Media/Lobbyists?

I am feeling very hopeful for America. Trump was gracious and reconciliatory in his speech yesterday. He wanted to reach out to every citizen . I encourage everyone and the world to give him a chance. After all it is only 4 years right? Vote him out if he proves himself to be unworthy. Peaceful transition of power showcasing the strength and resilience of American democracy. I welcome and wish our new president all the best come January 2017.

Peace :love:

Trump endorsement by the American public is just the beginning.............

The oldest and most important conflict in human societies is the battle over the concentration of wealth and power. The folks like us at the top have always told those at the bottom that our respective positions are righteous and good for all. Historically, we called that divine right. Today we have trickle-down economics.

What nonsense this is. Am I really such a superior person? Do I belong at the center of the moral as well as economic universe? Do you?

When the system propagates pork barrel cronyism and nepotism both sides will indulge in it. But the trend of recent decades is for the blue party to support big government and its supporting actors like lobbyists and lawyers, plus the media that feeds off them. And this is particularly amplified in the current case. I am surprised by the extent to which seemingly well informed people get taken in the mainstream media rhetoric and scream themselves hoarse, but then again maybe we shouldn't be surprised. Anyway he is now President elect and it would be hypocritical of his critics to not give him a chance.
