Apologia

I guess this is an apology to Donald Trump. I felt sick when Trump was elected president. As a liberal, I despised everything about Trump, everything he stood for, everything he said, everything he was, every policy he was likely to enact. In 2019, I have to face a stark fact. It was necessary for America to elect Trump in 2016, and it’s necessary for America to re-elect him in 2020.

Trump has been fantastic for America for one very simple reason: he has been nothing like a conventional politician. What Trump has achieved – an incredibly significant accomplishment – is the death of political business as usual. The age of lazy, complacent politicos feathering their own nests and doing nothing for the people is over. You would never believe that the people are the true masters of politicians, those that elect them to their positions to represent the people’s interests, not anyone else’s. Instead, politicians seem interested in anyone other than the people. They are especially interested in the rich donors that fund them. These are deemed of far high priority than the piffling people, too poor to give the politicians the lifestyle to which they aspire.

What is now apparent is that the entire political class is morally bankrupt and pointless. Politicians are useless. They are mindless bureaucrats, functionaries and groveling sycophants to their rich donors, the true puppetmasters.

Trump was the necessary corrective. He has shown how things can be done entirely differently.

Russian author Yevgeny Zamyatin wrote, True literature can exist only when it is created, not by diligent and reliable officials, but by madmen, hermits, heretics, dreamers, rebels and skeptics. What about true politics? Can true politics exist when it is created by lazy, unreliable, deceitful, politically correct, self-serving careerists with no principles, no expertise, no honor, no integrity, and no clue? Professional politicians always have an eye to the main opportunity – for them personally, the one that offers them the biggest financial return. They don’t care about the people, which is why nothing is ever done for the people.

The conventional political class cannot get anything done. They are just talkers and pointless debaters, droning on and on and avoiding the issue. Their time is over.

What Trump has done is break the glass ceiling of tedious clones and robots, mindless drones reciting rehearsed lines over and over again, never answering any questions, and always dancing on the head of a pin.

Thanks to Trump – an incendiary meteor that blazed through the political stratosphere – a whole new type of politician is now possible, from any background. Trump is the first president never to have held any public office or any military position. AOC, an exceptionally promising Democrat, owes Trump everything. She would never have come
