Dear Limey Assholes...
The British flagship financial magazine The Economist, considered one of the preeminent voices of the global financial, business and political elite, has waded boldly into U.S. politics, publicly calling for a Trump ouster from the race for Republican nominee with a cover story blasting the GOP front-runner.
In an email to subscribers, Economist editor-in chief Zanny Minton Beddoes writes that Donald Trump “is dangerously close to winning the Republican nomination for the presidency.”
Beddoes goes on to say that “Mr Trump is unfit to lead one of the world’s great political parties, let alone America. Republicans should tell him ‘You’re fired’ and rally behindSen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), the candidate with the best chance of beating him.”
The cover story, titled “Time to Fire Him” enumerates a list of reasons why the British mag feels that Trump is “unfit to lead a great political party.”
Constructing a scenario where Trump beats Hillary Clinton in a general election, the Economist calls a Trump victory “an appalling prospect.” [Only for the whiny public-school-educated jackasses who think themselves superior to Americans in every way and work at The Economist.]
“The things Mr Trump has said in this campaign make him unworthy of leading one of the world’s great political parties, let alone America,” the piece continues. “Mr Trump has prospered by inciting hatred and violence. He is so unpredictable that the thought of him anywhere near high office is terrifying.”
“He must be stopped,” the writers demand.
They warn that Americans are becoming “desensitized” to Trump’s “outbursts.”
Trump is no more a socialist than the self-styled "Houston Mafia" that surrounded Bush the Elder were; he doesn't have any more ideological bones in his body than did Bush '41 or Bush '43. Sarah talks about Trump's connections to the Clintons, but what she doesn't grasp is that the entire corporate-political elite is connected. Bill Clinton is closer to the Bush family than he is to Trump; in fact, it's entirely possible that Trump's connection to both Clintons is through the Bush family.
Is Trump going to govern like Obama? Or like the Bushes? Perhaps in many ways, but unlike the other Republican candidates, that is unlikely in regards to the only issue that matters at the moment: immigration. Trump is the only one talking about a wall, talking about stopping Muslim immigration, and even talking about deportations. And that, I strongly suspect, is the real fear of Trump opponents like Sarah. It's not that they think he will govern like Obama on immigration and the American national interest, but they fear that he won't.
That is why Trump is the only candidate who is worth supporting in 2016, despite being a member of the corporate-political elite, because he is an unpredictable rogue member of it and the only one that might - MIGHT - make a positive difference in the near future in the American national interest. Of course, he also may well not, but we already know beyond any shadow of a doubt that none of the other candidates are worth a damn.
He isn't an ideal candidate, he probably isn't even a good candidate, and he certainly isn't a trustworthy candidate, but nevertheless, at this point, he is the only possible candidate.
