Why Not Trump?

January 5, 2016

And I’m not talking about bridge or pinochle, I’m talking about Donald Trump, who I fear will be the Republican candidate for our next President. His bigotry, stupidity and crudeness aside, I would never vote for him because he is Big Business personified. So what’s wrong with Big Business? Big Business seeks to rule the world without regard for merit or moral principles. It’s bottom line and cherished goal is simply profit, at anyone’s and everyone’s cost. Much of Big Business today is simply Capitalism run amok. When unrestrained by law it can be as vicious and virulent as the other end of the political spectrum, Communism.
A case is point is the rule of Pol Pot, the communist ruler of Vietnam who slaughtered millions of his own people for Communism’s bottom line. As stated above, the focus of Big Business is profit by any means, no matter how perverted and unjust. Take, for example, the CEO of a drug company who very recently raised the cost of a life-saving drug by five hundred percent, putting it out of reach of any but the very wealthy. I agree with the assessment of one psychiatrist who said that the great majority of Big Business CEOs are sociopathic in nature. That is, they have no conscience, no compassion, no empathy, and worse, no knowledge of the 98%, the “others”, i.e., us, humanity.
If you want to know what the world will be like if Trump becomes president, read Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. If you want to know what the world will be like if Kruz wins, read her book The Handmaid’s Tale.
So, should we hope that Hillary wins? It’s high time a woman became the U.S. President, but unfortunately, Hillary is owned by Big Business due to their massive contributions to her political campaign. God help us all.

  • We like trump because he knows how to rebuild the USA. The country is in a downward spiiiral presently. My brother who owned a brokerage business for a living likes the Ohio governor because he balanced the budget for the state. We need someone who is dynamic. Time will tell. Thoughts from Pris andAl

    • I apologize for late reply. So, he won. I think people who voted for him believed all his lies. Maybe he does have the ability to rebuilt the USA. I think he has the ability to use the government to make himself and so many other millionaires richer. We will see. Thanks for your comment.
