The Sins of HRC; The Ascension of Trump

authoritarian

Interesting and bizarre results are forming on the political arena as this race to the White House chugs along. Bernie Sanders supporters are continuing to wager large assaults against Hillary Clinton (in more recent primaries) but superdelegates are snatching away support of the Democrats ticket for Sanders. It’s a heartbreaking thing for Sanders people to witness because they are just now seeing the possibilities with this man in charge of our country. Trump’s recent tweet said Sanders was being treated terrible by the Democrats and should run Independent.The possibilities from such a statement make for an interesting fare to watch here in the latter stages of the race. It all seemed so cut and defined early on; people assumed Trump would be out of this race by now and one of the remaining stump heads that ran for the Republican ticket would be out there as there front runner boy. That’s not how it happened for the Republicans though. Influence from what have been termed ‘Authoritarian’ Republicans are the reason Don is the man the party has been given.

More thoughts on Authoritarians later…my mind is humming going over all the news stories popping up about Hillary Rodham Clinton. She recently told the people of Ft. Mitchell, Ky., that if elected she would have to have her husband (Bill Clinton, yeah….that Bill Clinton) come out of retirement to help her get people back to work in the coal country and inner cities.That image certainly had to send chills down the back of ex-Bill haters. More questions rise up about allotments of money surrounding the Clinton’s foundation. Her recurring issues on email tampering. A bombardment of negative stories against Hillary Clinton are picking away at her electability, but still Sanders seems a long way off from getting the nod from the Democrat’s Powers-That-Be.She won’t give up without a fight and I can only imagine the pandering involved on that level to keep afloat as a White House potential. I’m not saying she’s any worse than a huge number of our current elected officials. Clinton seems to be the only true Old School party politician in the bunch. Sanders is the Lone Wolf out there and has done a tremendous job raising funds to keep in the race from the common people-and a few firms along the way. Trump tries to give the appearance of paying for his campaign from his own wallet but that will probably work into another bankruptcy thing or a monster write-off of some kind. Hillary has been bathed and trained in the ways of politicians as a First Wife, Senator and Secretary of State. She knows how to raise cash. She knows how to rally support from power players all over the globe and that may very well be the thing that seals her candidacy to the Democrats. Whatever sins Clinton may have to commit to grab the ticket, she is ready for. She is so close to being the first female President of the United States and now being this close, she has put the expenditures on full throttle. Whistle stops and closed door dealings with secluded cronies. To be so close to the throne-yet this is where it can really get chaotic-and this election certainly has had it’s chaos.

Recent studies show a large percentage of support for Trump has come from those who display characteristics of Authoritarianism.Surveys were given with trigger questions to verify that there is, in fact, a growth of Authoritarian support (with regards to voting choices) in America. There has been a noticed increase in fear brought about by social changes in our society and this has added to a split in the Republican party voters. Old Republican views on policy aimed at national economics have been overrun by those aimed at fears brought about by change in a growing diversity in America. Some have suggested I watch the implosion-or rebirth-of the Republican party and see if there isn’t a split between old Conservative Republicans and a New Age Authoritarian Republican. The splintering of that faction started when the Tea Party managed to give the House to Republicans back in 2010 and this was the first step for creating the monster I have come to refer to as Frankentrump….or Trumpenstein, whichever you like better. Trump was the by-product of a growing fear among Republican voters brought on by a focused stream of fear and loathing reports via Fox News. People like Rush Limbaugh and Shawn Hannity fed the social phobias those with Authoritarian tendencies held inside. They were brought to the surface by continual news coverage that wanted to point the finger at some indication of change in America. This was becoming a different nation and that scared a lot of people. Trump is not the last who will come along to appease and feed off the superstitions our changing global presence creates, but he was the first, big iconic example; the poster boy for all that is shameful in America.

So here we are at this leg in the race and the scorecard stands with Clinton and Trump running neck and neck and Sanders keeping pace…but for how long? Who will give out first-Clinton or Sanders? Should Bernie do as Trump suggested and go third party? Will news moguls launch enough propaganda and mud smear on Hillary to knock her out of the race for 2016? Do you think you’ve experienced the scariest part of this ride yet? Wait until we see what’s up ahead.
