For a while now, I’ve seen the Trump phenomena as being primarily about economics. Building a wall, insults, all that other crap … who cares? As a middle class American, I want to know what candidates are going to do about my economic future.
Trump seems to be the only one talking about trade and economics.
But no one else even noticed. Racism! Stupidity! He’s a phony and a fraud!
I was beginning to think I was seeing something that wasn’t there. Now, the Guardian is backing me up (Thanks, Guardian!).
Okay, the reasonable part of this post is over. I’m putting on my tinfoil hat – I can’t help but ask, “Why is the Republican establishment so vehemently anti-Trump?”
Seriously, they’d rather Ted Cruz over the guy. Rationally, you have to see Trump as a deal maker. Why not simply have a sit down with him and try to have him tamp down on the crazy?
But if the establishment is as completely in the pocket of big business as I think they are, they’re stance makes a lot more sense. Reasonable opinion or not, I’m just sayin’ …
