What's Up Next For The 2017 Presidential Campaign?
Well both candidates are of to fast start. Actually a rock heavy start.
Neither Republican Candidate Donald Trump, nor Democrat Candidate Hillary Clinton have a clear shot a the presidency, reason being because both are facing the wrath of enemies within and without.
The problem here is that so many GOP traditionalists hate Trump and Clinton, and so many Democratic traditionalists hate Clinton and Trump, both sides won't know which direction the arrows will be flying from. Clinton and Trump will have to be watching their backs every step of the way. It would be insanity for both to attack one another on character grounds or it would turn into a pile of a steamer that no one would want to crawl out from under. That's the rub right there. If Clinton attacks Trump on character values then Trump's people will do likewise, thus filling the air with all sorts of accusations, poisonous in nature.
There's a hair trigger on all of this and if things don't move smoothly, we're all in for some of the nastiest political fireworks ever seen.
What's so valuable, what's so at stake for the opposing sides to be so on the teetering rock for? Well, let's take a look at issues far too many are terrorized to face.
First of all, there's money, lots of money. Trillions of dollars are in the coffers of both Republicans and Democrats and their are itchy fingers waiting to spend it all and the only way they'll do so is with the authority of either Clinton or Trump.
The only way to get the authority is to make one of them president. Well, there's only one way to do that.
Clinton's got access to war money. The GOP wants their hands on that war money like they had their hands on the warchests after 9/11. The GOP has the military-industrial complex sewed up. It's the only way they can feed their young and protect themselves. The Dems need the money for their social programs by which they feed their young and protect themselves. See, this is how the game is played, the GOP has to pay off all those people their present and past ancestors attacked. They've got to make sure these victims get paid on the down-low or the victims will get riled up and demand reparations. The same goes for the people the Democratic hierarchy has offended. They need that money to pay off their victims and everyone wants a piece of the pie.
If a panic ensues, expect both sides to contribute to it. The GOP wants war and the Dems want total control. It's not going to happen and with luck this time, the people will finally have a say in government as the curtains get peeled off from both parties and the public gets a real glimpse at whose behind the throne.Posted by GregB at July 29, 2016 12:32 PM
