Drain the Swamp!

That’s Trump’s excellent campaign slogan these days, added to his older Make America Great Again. More like Make American Normal Again, as gay Pay Pal co-founder, Silicon Valley billionaire, and Trump supporter Peter Thiel puts it.

Normal as in no more half trillion dollar trade deficit. No more NAFTA and other free trade putting 94 million American adults—almost half the adult population—out of work. And no more fighting five undeclared, simultaneous wars with no victory in sight. Fix those things and closing the southern border to cheap, unskilled illegals and ceasing the flow of cheap, unskilled Muslim refugees from the Middle East would be a piece of cake.

Well, I mixed some Rush Limbaugh in there with what Thiel says on this video which Limbaugh has on his site. Thiel’s trying to educate the Ruling Class. It’s well worth a listen. How many Silicon  Valley billionaires are backing Trump? Just Thiel as far as I know. And he’s angry. But very measured in his anger. He wants to drain the swamp before it’s too late. Too late to stop something worse than a controversial presidential election.

And here’s Trump’s latest summation of a speech on his issues: ObamaCare, Nafta, Common Core, high taxes and cuts in defense spending.

“I am not a politician,” he said. “My only special interest is you, the American people. The guiding rule of the political class in Washington, D.C., is that they are looking out only for themselves. They will say anything, and do anything, to cling to their power and prestige at your expense. I’m running to change and reverse decades of failure, and to work with the American people to create generations of success.”

Works for me. I’m more than ready for an outsider president. Drain the Swamp!

  1. I know pols like Hillary rely on this, but I’m wore out on the election. I can’t sit and watch/read/listen to much more.

  2. The really bad thing is, after it’s over, another series of shitstorms will begin, no matter who is elected.

    • Of course. Thing is, I figure if she’s elected we’ll see her’s and Obama’s version of Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre, in which this time, the FBI rather than the DOJ, is purged, starting with Comey’s firing. If Trump’s elected, the leftists, the folks who demonstrate for everything they want, will likely starting rioting and pot-shoting cops. And Obama will work on leaving Mr. T. an even bigger mess than he has to contend with already. We’re lucky, though. We’ve got front-row seats far enough away not to fear either outcome. Pass the popcorn.
