Buyer’s Remorse? A Brief Reflection on Year One of the Trump Presidency:

Trump Hillary

I may not be recognized for it, but I do believe that I played an important role in the election of Donald Trump. Not in terms of views or publicity, but in terms of influence and impact. And if that statement stands to be true, then it also kind of makes me responsible for the results. Although Donald Trump wasn’t technically my first choice (Rand Paul), I was more than happy to ‘Jump on the Trump Bandwagon’ when it became the right time to do so. In fact I actually ended up enjoying every minute of it. The historic 2016 election lived up to every bit of the hype and beyond.

But now it’s 2018, and the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency is officially in the books. Was I sick of winning yet? Or was I suffering from a bad case of ‘buyer’s remorse?’

Things have certainly changed, and one of the most obvious post-election observations I’ve noticed is the difference between the previous establishment administrations and their alliance with the media.

  • The Republican/Democrat machines are carefully controlled environments with everyone pretty much on the same page.
  • The Trump machine is overloaded with alphas and egos. Sometimes indispensable heroes, sometimes jerks and narcissists that suck as a team.

Of course the status quo is the smoother system, but not necessarily superior. In other words, is it better to have:

  • A completely controlled coalition with gratuitous groupthink?
  • Unpredictability & public provocativeness? Social-media shit-storms and egomaniacs eating each other?

I suppose there is no right answer, but it’s all just for fun. Now let’s get to the big, burning question:

If we could all do the election over, which future would we rather live in?

We already know what we would get with Trump. His world involves inflammatory Twitter feuds, a Sean Spicer parody, this guy Scaramucci, a never ending Russian investigation, a crackdown on human trafficking, ‘Q-Anon,’ and a bombshell book from a wolf in the White House!

Hillary’s world would be kept quite secret. Without Bernie or Trump in her way, she could be congratulating her good friend Harvey Weinstein on his latest movie award! Matt Lauer could be interviewing first husband Bill on Jeffrey Epstein’s Island. The Podesta brothers could be celebrating at Comet Ping-Pong Pizza. Wikileaks would no longer exist, and no one would know about Seth Rich. And after Hillary’s term was over, get ready for longtime DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to coronate future president Anthony Weiner! Believe it, and welcome to Huma & Hillary’s greatest dream come true!

Call me crazy, but if I had to vote all over again; I’d still pass on the creepy Clinton Cult. And I don’t care what kind of fire or fury flows out of the Trump White House, because it only makes this presidential reality show even better.

At this point, I don’t care if the Donald turns out to be a little dirty. Or even a little crazy. I just want him to do his best to destroy the dishonest media and drain the swamp like he said he would. Shine some light on the treachery, shake down the traitors, and purge all the pedophiles and predators.

I certainly don’t agree or endorse everything that Donald Trump says, does, or tweets. But I do believe he has been the most exciting thing to happen to politics ever. And like Donald’s frequent theme song from the ‘Rolling Stones’ goes; you can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, well you just might find you get what you need. In this case, a powerful reality star to battle against the dreaded deep-state and the phony political elite. Now why would we want to change that?

No remorse here, looking forward to year two!

Further Proof that the Establishment is Afraid of Ron Paul:

So I recently expressed both my anger and skepticism at Fox News over the “honest mistake” regarding the CPAC response to Ron Paul, when another huge media whitewash occurred the other day; only this time, it was much more personal to me.

In case you missed it, the Daily Show had a bit the other day on all the new presidential hopefuls to run against Obama in 2012, only Ron Paul’s name is never mentioned! This clip is over seven minutes long, and mentions eight presidential hopefuls*, and Ron Paul’s name is mysteriously omitted? Didn’t the guy just win the frickin CPAC? Can someone please explain how it’s possible to write a piece of news on the noteworthy candidates of 2012 and somehow just completely forget to include the one that many consider to be the biggest threat to the establishment? How’s that for blatant media corruption? Say it ain’t so Jon!

I mention that I take this personal as I am a big fan of Jon Stewart and the Daily Show. However, I can’t possibly ignore or make excuses for something this unexplainable. Not only is this omission totally unacceptable, the “honest mistake” excuse has already been played, and since it didn’t work on me the first time…

Another question I have to ponder is; how many more hopefuls would it have taken before the Daily Show staff were forced to acknowledge Ron Paul as a candidate? Was he edited out as a close #9? Or is it far more likely that it didn’t really matter? I’d say the smart money is on the latter…

The clip runs from about 1:00-8-55:

*the eight presidential hopefuls featured in the bit are Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Haley Barbour, Tim Pawlenty, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, and Mitch Daniels.

Want to know why this is so significant? The recent CPAC straw poll results have Ron Paul claiming 31% of the votes! That means that if you exclude Mitt Romney with 22%, and give Donald Trump 100% of the “other” votes (5%), Ron Paul still outscores all seven of the other candidates featured in the Daily Show bit combined, 31% to 29%! What an audacious whitewash!
