How do you like us Now? The Trump supporters.

Two Parties representing themselves

How do you like us now?

You and your two organizations of far-left and far-right gangs of manipulators calling yourselves Democrats snd Republicans.

You managed to split yourselves into two parties of egotistical “representatives of the people”. But you were no longer our representative, were you?

You were a collection of local groups who had eventually put themselves into their own little cliques, and then you pushed the common man away and out your doors.

You had your cocktail parties and patted each other on your backs for all having the same opinions and goals.

There's a Storm Coming!

There's a Storm Coming, and it's US the working people of America, pushing for change to our political system.

What the Party wants and not what the people want

One party wants abortions, the other wants abortions to stop.

And to Hell with those of us who have mixed emotions and opinions, on such a serious subject.

One party wants to own guns ad the other wants to have no one with guns.

And to hell with those of us who are sitting in the middle, with other more moderate ideas.

One party wants to ban and eliminate ALL social services and benefits for ALL Americans, while the other wants to support every American and every immigrant who can jump a fence or crawl through a tunnel, turning the US into a new Socialist experiment.

And to Hell with those of us who want to help their fellow Americans first, and at the same time manage a more sensible national budget.

One party wants ……

OK, you get my point.

What do the people want? Someone who represents them.

We have turned into two-party system where each party is so alienated from the other, that they are impossibly deadlocked on these and other issues that should be negotiated and resolved, at least partially and logically, like we want them to do.

And we want them to do this by reducing our budget, that presently feeds the “favored and the select” and ignores those of us who are out of favor, or just don’t have enough money to donate to each party’s favorites.

Well, How do you like us now?

We found this crazy Billionaire who is financing his own election campaign.

He says things that piss off people like you, the radically opinionated journalists, and the election experts ….. on purpose.

He say what he thinks, and sometimes he is wrong. But he's big enough to admit he’s wrong. Just like we would do.

He doesn’t blow smoke up our Asses, when asked a question about a national problem. He just says WHAT HE THINKS. Right or wrong, it’s what he thinks.

He calls a liar a liar, and doesn’t say crap like “there must be some error in what ………”

He just makes us, the common man, so damned Happy that we are actually beginning to feel we might be able to elect someone that we want to look at our nations problems.

Not someone who is going to jump on his party’s boat and ride away into their special sunset drinking their cocktails and toasting their success in tearing another little piece of America down.

Doing this while totally ignoring us, the working Americans who go to our jobs each day, and come home and worry about our kids future and just, you know, still CARE about America.

DO I want a philanderers wife running my America?

Do I want an avowed Socialist running my country? D

o I want an extremist conservative who wants to eliminate every little benefit I worked for my whole life, to go away?

UH, How do I say this ….. HELL NO!

Yeah! How do you like us now!

Um, hes not in the middle, hes "pro life". Translation:anti abortion. Glad you can celebrate him, hes not going after your autonomy.

I wont give up my life for any so called religion. Particularly since its a man, who can never get pregnant, telling me so.

I will only vote pro choice, pro Palestine. Sick of paying for genocide, too.

Trump, like Snowden, only goes so far.

Well, i actually find myself cheering Trump at times. Sometimes i luv that he puts it to the a** holes.

I just wish he didnt ferl the need to use me as punching bag, like all Republicans do. Every time these phony holy rollers act like they give a crap about women or babies OR god...

I wish i had a punching bag.

Yeah man, im a real holy roller, now bang bang bend over, i drive.

The truth is that another one term or two term President who will continue with "business as usual" will destroy what is left of this once great country. Trump has at least identified many of the problems we face today.

I believe he is feared by many incumbents because he knows the one's who are bought and paid for. How does he know? Because he bought them.

Great take on Trump.

The root cause of the continued decline of the US can be put squarely on the two parties, and ther divergent goals for the country. Neither party as evidenced by historical facts has had any real solutions when they were in control.

The parties make the country go up and down, but not forward. Gridlock is their favorite position. Loyal party voters keep giving their power to the party, and the party doesn't serve the people or even their supporters.

People should also discount any of the social issues like Abortion, as the government cannot solve these types of problems. That is a fact, and one example is Roe v Wade is still being argued 41 years later.

Thanks

I agree with both you and LovemyChris. In fact, I don’t think much of any of the candidates. I’m not going to stand for a bunch of misled holyrollers and Catholics taking health care away from women, but I don’t like the Demo’s open-door policy toward aliens either. However, I think Trump is a big blow-hard, and if he gets in, he will ultimately be pro-big business. Oh wurra, wurra, what’s a body to do?

Shades of 1850! The only difference between then and now is that nobody has shot or knifed a candidate or challenged one to a duel. And the soap box is now behind a podium in front of cameras instead of standing on a cut tree root shouting to a crowd.

Old Poolman- You're right, and he admitted that's what he did, because it was legal, and oh so easy, to do so; buy politicians. They sit in their cocktail parties and accept Condo's and lifetime memberships in Clubs, and other subtle bribes and laugh at the rest of us working our asses off in this country. Yep! Tie for change, and most of don't give a damn who it will be, as long as they're different that the rank and file.

Thanks for the comment,

Don, I am scared to death that his antics, if president, could destabilize what little we have going on now. It appears to be all about him. The whole deal about having a fundraiser for veterans while the debate goes on is bully cookies. How much did he support wounded warriors and disabled vets before he started his campaign. This man is a self aggrandizing narcissist who could get us in a whole lot more trouble than we are in now.


Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 8 months ago from Rural Arizona

Don - The one thing Trump really has going for him is he is a Washington outsider and not a member of the good-ole boy club. He has plenty of dirt on them, but they have little or none on him. He might just be exactly what we need for at least one term. However if he implodes, there are some other good choices to fall back on.

BradmasterOCcal - I will agree whole-heartedly on one thing, our two party system once worked when politicians could be a conservative Democrat or a Libera Republican.

Today? These free-thinkers are not allowed in the parties. Each must toe the party line or be ostracized.

And the majority opinions of each party are not a reflection of what the working people of our country want.

THAT's our problem today.

Mizbejabbers - Thanks so much for your comment.

Your words reflect what I was saying. We, the people have lost our respect and confidence in our two-party system.

We just don't trust either group any longer, not to be crooked and unresponsive to the people's needs and desires.

Old Poolman - You have probably hit the reason for his popularity on the head.

He is definitely an Outsider. And the people of America are not the uneducated and simple people we once were.

We are members of an age of communication with exposure to information unprecedented in our history.

Our politicians, on the other hand, are still operating as if we can be bamboozled into anything.

BUT, it seems that a very large number of the voting public has had enough and are ready to listen to anyone not attached to their system of "perks and favors".

DON


Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 8 months ago from Rural Arizona

Very true Don, but as evidenced by some of the man-in-the-street interviews not all of our citizens are exactly up to speed on current events.

Bernie Sanders throws around the word "Free" in almost every speech he gives. For many, "Free" is the only word they need to hear to pick a candidate.

It would be interesting to know how many know that Congress just puts on a show for us to make us believe they are earning their pay. Most decisions are made in backroom deals and over cocktails at the club. Regardless of the political party, they are in it together and their main motivation is more power and more money for themselves.

As you point out, many of us are now wise to this and have had it with this bunch of do nothing crooks. I just hope we can get someone in that chair that actually gives a damn about this country and we the people.

Don...Thank you for your honesty.. and bringing truth to your write. Stating facts, not assumptions.

Finally a well written " tongue in cheek " HP article..

AMEN...now maybe we should play the TRUMP card ..

I actually heard a comment the other day...stopped me in my tracks... listening to a conversation, regarding society and paranoia where someone said..." at least in America, we don't have to fear anything like what happened in Paris " ( like many others Sept 11... the LA shooting... bombing of Marathon ... are already forgotten..hmm makes one wonder...thanks again for the share..will forward..

lovemychris 8 months ago from Cape Cod, USA

Yes, i hear that a lot. But a lot of Democrats who i consider "normal", "good people"are behind her. Sanders is saying if people come out to vote, he will win.

And there is NO WAY to elect soneone who will do what "we" want, as we are different as night and day.

Another one over there who says Obama is the anti-Christ. Personally, i dont see anything their way and wouldnt want to in a million years.

Eventually, with his rump swabbing, Trump is going to have to address these people.

At least Hillary has same enemies as me. And doesnt mind calling them out. Trump is busy promising them the moon.

MsDora - Actually, I wrote this article as a Satirical View of the state of our two-party political system.

To be honest, as I wrote on my personal Blog, I consider Trump to be an Ass! But, at the same time, I and so many of my fellow citizens have become incensed by the two party's selected candidates and their lack of respect for the working man and his/her vote.

Thanks for the comment,

MizBejabbers 8 months ago from Arkansas

Don, something that scares me: People keep saying that we need a president who will do want WE want, but who are "we"? Since this is such a diverse country, what with all the splinter groups with special interests. We have ultra conservatives, conservatives, middle-of-the-roaders, liberals and ultra liberals. We have white folks, black folks, Asians, and Latinos, all who have been here for 100 to 300+ years, and Native Americans who've been here thousands of years. Now we are getting immigrants of every color, ethnicity and Language. Who are WE, and how can we say that the president, any president, isn't representing US?

It seems to me that every time somebody doesn't get his way, he starts a howl on social media and sends out multiples of emails saying the president isn't representing US, when he means the president isn't representing HIS way. This has been going on since Jimmy Carter was president or maybe before.

But, having traveled the worked and spent some time, in several nations with interesting ideas on freedom, support systems and individual rights, I can say, give me our nation filled with the craziest groups of people standing and arguing with the most sane over those that prefer to shoot first.

You have probably heard of " Fifty shades of Grey " and" Fifty shades of black "...I' m working on my next write titled " Fifteen various shades of Whites with Gray Hair " the title alone send chills down my spine...

talk about duplication..just change a few words and you can have a best seller..it's the way of society today...

While everyone is howling about Donald's event for the veterans during the Republican debate I am chuckling at his manipulation of the whole RNC and the media. Nothing short of brilliant. The rest of the candidates should have joined him. What happened to the days when college professors and people with credentials moderated debates instead of media figure heads?

tirelesstraveler - You hit the nail on the head.

Trump is doing what is good for Trump, not what some consortium tells him to do.

Its the same as with us, the people. If looking at new acrs is something that we need to do, then we look at them. Otherwise, they can keep their new cars.

The die-hard GOP party's candidates, on the other hand, do as they are told by the party leadership (and the PACs) and literally fear not toeing the line.

It's refreshing to watch.

Thanks for the comment,

Funny, i though Megan Kelly was a beast! No wonder Trump is afraid of her.

And everyone says hes not beholden to anyone. Really? Who got him out of bankruptcy?

I think he and his buddies are salivating at the bit....just think of all the real estate opportunities in the ME and once oil barons take all our public lands for personal use...you know--kind of like gvr did in Michigan....you see how that ended up.

Profits over people. Boooooo

It will be interesting to see if Trump shot himself in the foot or earned some more followers by not attending the debate.

To me, this action shows he is not under the control of the powers to be in the party and the media.

Change. That is what has made this country what it is today. The need for change, the desire for change, the necessity for change...

Who is the right candidate to lead this country? It is hard to tell since they are all so concerned with beating each other out it is hard to tell who can run the country!

I admit I favor Trump because of his frankness, but have no idea where it will go and of course who the parties will pick as their candidate.

Really, just who do we think we are, we members of the slovenly masses, not listening to their canned commentaries.

Do Americans realise how much he’s hated in Europe because of hate speeches and his blatant lies targeted at London, Britain, Scotland, Germany, France and Belgium. In Britain in particular, where over half a million UK citizens signed a petition to ban Trump from entry to the UK (making him the most hated person by Britons), he would not be welcome here by the British people; which would make any diplomatic relationship between America and Britain rather strained in the event of him becoming the next President of the USA.

Remember "Brewster's Millions"? "Vote For None Of The Above"? That's about where we are. That being said, Trump is something we've never had before and a part of me wants someone like him in office to say what needs said. Imagine him telling China to go suck an egg and stop poisoning our country with all their chemicals added to products. Priceless! Can you imagine he and Putin in a shouting match?

Bottom line is we need someone who is not an insider and Trump, although he knows how to play the game, is different. I'll take different this time, thank you.


Don Bobbitt profile image

Don Bobbitt 7 months ago from Ruskin Florida Author

Mr.Archer - You're right, and watching the news it's so obvious that the news media and the other politicians are still sticking their heads in the sand.

The American working class is Tired! Tired of being lied to, tired of being laden with more and more taxes, tired of paying for a subculture of people who are in their second and third generation of blood-sucking indigents who don't even try to better themselves.

Yep. There is a storm coming, and I have my boots on already!

We now have living proof that we-the-people are just plain fed up with our business as usual government. The popularity of Trump and Sanders sends a clear message to the establishment of just how fed up we are.

You can bet that many of them are scared to death that one of these guys will win the election. They would have to hold up a sign declaring "The party is over."

Many out there still believe we have a two party system that is part of a check and balance system. In truth, it is a single party system and they all work together to achieve more personal wealth and power.

Trump already knows many of them who can be bought because he bought them. Conversely, he knows those who can't be bought because he tried to buy them and they refused his offer.

It is Trump or someone like him who can get this train back on the tracks again.

SO, Let's look here for the moment!

The ABC Club = believe in Anybody But Cruz!

Cuomo? = "i want to be the Boss someday! And to Hell with my constituency in Florida!

Sanders? = A Lame Duck Socialist who will get nothing done. Shades of Carter?

Hillary? = Too many lies and too much BS. The same old school who have put the country in the state its in now.

So, then there's Trump! = Not really a part of any political system. A major BullShitter! Talks to people like you and I do. Does not talk down to the American Public as if we were some necessary pain they have to put up with to get elected.

Wonder who I might vote for?

When trying to make my decision I picture the candidate sitting across the table from Putin negotiating a deal that works in our favor.

The only one who shows up in my picture is Trump.

We have seen how it goes with establishment negotiating a deal with Iran in the form of John Kerry.
