Thread Name: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
Subject: RE: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
To be honest, Stilly seems like the only one here who understands that US Founding fathers and Constituton writers recognized that 'reason' had to have an equal chance to counter/balance 'passion' for the nation to endure. Now we are dealing with an overflowing river of misinformation and mistrust from Facebook tributaries. Wall St. helped flood the nation with the 2008 home foreclosure crises. Mistrust is a natural outcome. Misinformation from the KKK segment of society enticed moderate whites who felt victimized. They are NOT the majority except in guns. With a President who parrots people's suspicions, the misinformation has hardened. We even have our own Joe O who puruses neo nazi history revisionist websites and posts their viewpoint as in the This land thread. Since he is still in a denial mode there is still hope for reason to return, his pm's not withstanding. Growing up I read The Minority of One. Today I feel like I am one.
Trump in this light is a symptom and not a cause but believe me he has caused alot along with his advisor Steve Bannon.
Yes I can prove I have warned of a risk of civil war insurrection for several decades and now I find others may take this too lightly. That is my worry and insecurity and not an accusation. Perhaps I am not a minority of one. BUT IT IS THE BEST OF TIMES AND THE WORST OF TIMES.
