Trump’s rise and fall

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I am accepting last night in Arizona as the moment Trump drove passed his final turn that might get him in the White House, but he chose a feel-good speech overflowing with the words and imagery that got him the Republican nomination. It’s relatively easy to unite people who are angry, but converting unity of angry people to a meaningful political movement is difficult. MLK did it; Occupy Wall Street did not, and last night has the potential to be remembered as the final turn along Trump’s rise and fall as a Presidential candidate. Outward support of Trump is unfashionable, which adds credence to the claim voters will choose Trump at a rate higher than the polls indicate, so I’ve had trace amounts of anxiety that Trump would be elected even though polls and remaining time to November was indicating a Trump win was nearly impossible. Last night was his final opportunity to pivot, and he didn’t. GOP started with Lincoln, and may be ending with it’s association with the Alt Right — ciao Trump — ciao the GOP as we knew it. »» about me 302-990-2346 nearlincoln@hotmail.com contact us
