Reader comment on item: A Conservative in the Age of Trump

Submitted by Anne Julienne (Australia), Jan 17, 2017 at 11:38

A great summing up as the point of transition approaches.

Trump is indeed a dangerous but also hopeful choice. We live in times where a massive change is needed and Trump has the personality to effect this. He is, nevertheless, greatly flawed and worry is well advised.

The liberal Democrat supporting side of the US is hurting badly. It wasn't a good outcome that Clinton should win a majority of votes but lose the electoral college. Half of the US will find it hard to accept Trump's leadership.

You predict chaos, perhaps even war, in Europe as the electorate leans Right and tensions rise.

Something similar could happen in the US. I hope it won't lead to bloodshed but it might.

For now, we must just hope that a new balance can be found after eight years of Far Left ideology prevailing.

Thank you for your wise take on events as they unfold.
