As far as I’m concerned they could remove everyone in Washington and I wouldn’t care. Only a handful care about us. Trump vows to represent the average Joe and to rise up against the establishment elite. And I applaud that!
There was an obscure website called “The Journal of American Greatness,” where Trump was lauded. This site, no longer in existence, called for the political system to be overthrown by a man like Trump who represents the people’s will. (No coincidence that Trump is yelling about a fixed election). One of the writers suggests that Trump would effectively quieten the influence of Washington, while taking on power much like Caesar. And he would reinstall the people’s right to govern themselves. While such a task has some merit---in my opinion Congress is a failed institution that doesn’t come close to representing anyone but the elite---Trump doesn’t seem the one for the job. He is far too egotistical to effectively carry such power and he brings too much baggage to unite the people behind his revolution. I wrote months ago that if I were president I would isolate those in Congress who have no concern except for their own little causes, who have no desire to govern, so diminishing congressional influence is a good thing. I mean where were these leaders when we went to needless wars, during the financial crisis, and on and on? Someone needs to shut them up!! And unless things change, it will happen. But not with Trump. He is going to lose. If another person, say a Colin Powell, had come forth with the same passion and desire to destroy the establishment, things would be different. But the seeds of dissent have been sown and my hope is that someone with greatness will step forth to see them to fruition.
