Dear Mr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: Why I'm Voting for Trump

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Oct 24, 2020 at 00:28

I also agree with your choice of Trump for this US election but for some completely different reasons.

My reasons are as follows :
1. Trump is responsible for the death of 200K+ Americans due to COVID-19 which for me is the greatest achievement against global worming. The Americans are world's greatest polluters and the more these people die the better it is for the planet. Trump with his COVID-19 policies has singlehandedly gotten rid of a lot of World polluters and for me this is his biggest achievement to date.

2. Trump has seriously exposed the risks of having an unipolar world. In a world where the US is the World's sole policeman is the most unjust and most dangerous. Trump has completely bared the true face of Western hegemony over the rest of us and how that destroys life on this planet.

3. Trump has not only seriously polarized the Whites and non-Whites but he has clearly done his best polarize between those who still believe in a Western-led global hegemony and those who want multi-polarity.

4. Trump has destroyed the myth that Western-style democratic systems work best. If the global hegemonic West cannot prevent so many deaths from a microscopic being then we should be able to question whether Western-style democratic systems are actually suitable for even large Western societies let aside complex societies like China, Russia, Iran or Turkey.

5. Most importantly Trump has shown with his actions why it is important to have multiple poles of power and systems of governance in not only West Asia but in rest of the World. Trumpian politics is the biggest advertisements for strong counterbalancing powers like Iran, Turkey, North Korea, Russia and China.

These are precise reasons that I would love a Trump victory.

Having said that I believe that Joe Biden will win simply because the election game was rigged many months before. I also believe that GW Bush Junior winning the election in 2000 against Al Gore was the first serious case of election fraud and election stealing in the US history and this did not turn out good for either the West or for that matter the rest of the World. But the Military-Industrial-Israel-Financial lobby simply wants more war for maximizing its profits and thus they will make sure that Trump losses and Biden wins.

I would love your views on the same.

Thanks and regards with best wishes
Debanjan
