FINALLY… The ‘Fundamental Change’ the REST of us have been waiting for.
Michael Walsh made an excellent point:
‘If Trump has slain the Clintons, embarrassed Obama and humiliated the Bush family, he already deserves the thanks of a grateful nation.’
America was an experiment that REJECTED the notion of Oligarchy… of bloodlines… of insider politics.
America was to be an exercise in direct involvement by the citizens in rewarding and punishing those who have been sent to represent us.
Those who were faithful are rewarded, and those who were not expected to pay a price for their unfaithfulness.
Somewhere along the line we’ve reverted to old habits of the nations we’ve left behind.
Even if NOTHING else were to come of Trump being elected, the breaking of these bloodlines and insider hand-offs gives us a window of opportunty to restore ‘of the people, by the people, for the people’ to its proper place in the American political fabric.
That… by itself… is one HELL of a positive legacy.
We’ll drink to that!
(What, too soon?)
