As the 100th day of the Trump Presidency approaches, it strikes me at just how openly partisan our mainstream media has become, and how foolish at least 50% of our electorate is for believing so much of what is broadcast.
"President Trump has Record Low Approval after 100 Days" crows the media; as if the 9:1 ration of negative articles vs. positive articles did not have anything to do with it.
To the non-critical thinkers out there, I invoke the spirit of Andy Rooney by asking "You ever wonder why the mainstream media opposition of President Trump is so fierce"?
What's wrong with putting America first, I ask you? If you have locks on your doors, why are you against putting a lock on the door of our country? If you have a job, what's wrong with protecting that job by not allowing it to be outsourced? Are you seriously going to place unproven acts of misogyny or racism against President above the interests of our country?
Granted, over the past twenty years the average American family has saved about $10,000.00 per year by ignoring our Trade Deficit while making the top 1% even wealthier in the process......Duh, what, you didn't think that could go on forever without consequences did you? National deficits, factories closing, reduced & stagnant wages and rampant underemployment are the bill coming due for our savings from Chinese child labor. Oh and by the way, congratulations to us all on the creation of a new world superpower in Communist China at the price of saving a few bucks on our stuff.
So I'm thinking that Nero guy that fiddled while Rome burned is no different that at least 50% of the American electorate. My guess is that about another 5% on the extreme left and 5% extreme right representing the disproportionately loud party base divide the rest of us by controlling their party on key social issues. This leaves about 40% in the center comprised of both parties that still give a damn about their future and the future of the Country.
It is time for the President to stop trying to play the game the way it has been stacked by crocodile politicians that are fat & happy in their Washington DC swamp. We need a third party to drain the proverbial swamp and by shaking up the nature of two-party political corruption. A third party focused on America First. A third party that refuses to engage in the war of social issues, whether LGTB bathrooms or Abortion. A third party of the People that our forefathers would recognize and be proud of.
