Symptom of a broken system. The bipartisan consensus that's had us stuck in half a dozen wars in the Middle East and North Africa for 15 years and no end in sight. The permanent welfare/warfare state living on borrowed and printed money. It's gotten so bad that even the public is catching on.

Trump is a symptom. As was Hillary, one of the principal architects of the failed foreign policy.

The corruption is so bad that the system is seizing up. The wars continue on autopilot, the debt keeps piling up, the money printing keeps on going, the wealthy global elite suck up the wealth of the middle class, and a few deluded fools think this is going to all come in for a soft landing someday.

Please, explain to me how this ends well. Spin up a scenario where this situation doesn't end in disaster.

President Trump is a rookie Swamp drainer.
He's accustomed to surrounding himself with beauty, not Swamp critters.

He should have hired Gingrich and called him Swamp Fox.

Not too late.

He is fake in that he is not what he is - I mean, he presides over you in a fake way - he's more crass (gobshite) businessman than politician, which is ok and fits well with the times, America is a company and him its first (openly) real CEO. A corporate coup d'état where...
