“We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.” – Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. August 28, 1963
And before you say anything, I know what you're thinking, and I agree, totally, those 7 words do NOT belong together, and even now as I read them back, 'click-bait' is the word that springs to mind. But, if I can ask you to hold off from unleashing vitriol of biblical proportions in the comments section below and hear me out.
The basis of my conclusion comes from the same question that the 57.9% of eligible American voters who turned out faced on November 8th 2016. Which was "who is the lesser evil"?
Despite this feeling I have deep down in my balls that anybody who can't beat a thin-skinned, sexist, racist, war crime advocate, disabled journalist mocking, pussy grabbing, 6 time bankruptee doesn't deserve to win, I have to admit there's a tiny part of me that agrees Hillary would (at least in the short term) be the lesser evil. However, the perverse irony here is that Trump's 'negatives' are in fact the reasons I was secretly rooting for him to beat dear ol' Hills.
“I know he'll fuck it up” – Me. October, 2016
I think it's time I cut to the chase. And let me just say, I have tremendous faith in Donald Trump, he's such an obvious fraud with a record of running nickel and dime scams like Trump University, (what billionaire needs to scam members of the public out of a few grand anyways?) he has at least 6 failed businesses under his belt (a belt that was probably made in China) and he's universally hated to boot. Add all that up and it means he'll be scrutinised 'up the wazoo', blocked at every opportunity (from both sides), meaning, as in business, he'll accomplish very little.
But the real cherry on the cake here is that we're just 3 months into the Trump regime (I doubt he'll see 2 years) and already the 'left' are organising in a way they NEVER would have if Hillary had gotten the nod. Bernie Sanders is still the most popular politician in America, there's grass roots movements sprouting up from coast to coast such as 'Draft Bernie', 'Run Tulsi' there's the Justice Democrats who are taking on the 'corporate democrats' in the forthcoming primaries. the same corporate democrats who are being booed whenever they appear in public.
Trump has awoken the revolution, Hillary would have kissed it on the cheek and sent it back to sleep.
