It has been a long, long time since this observer considered how badly the American electoral process could be taken advantage of; that in more than fifty years, every election prior had its good and bad, yet there seemed to be a cyclical process where any perceived advantage taken by either the leftist or conservative stance could be shifted as long as the people were able to retain the Constitutional balances once thought sacred. In the last thirty plus years, since the presidency of Reagan, those balances have been set aside and false regard for true governance is the norm.
Here is irony: Trump's fortunes were set in the backdrop of Clinton the First's economical policies; and in spite of the cooked books of American legislative mismanagement of the taxpayer's involuntary role in pay for play, people like Trump, Clinton, Buffet, Soros and the silent moneyed interests of the Federal Reserve System took the taxpayer for all they could get.
True American patriotism never stood a chance: the logic that the government would protect the assets of the people was sold out long before the current fiscal cataclysm and no amount of sound financial management would be able to soothe the hurt and betrayal of the American Middle Class. That is what is at stake here: how does the betrayal of the American Middle Class get resolution when there is no logical course or recourse being presented (Trump's positions notwithstanding).

The Clinton II camps offers even less sensible proffering's: more taxes are all that the leftists are willing to promote while they believe there is not enough left of the middle class to oppose them, even as they look to remove any residual middle class influences. Leftists do not offer logic either.
So this election is not about logic; it is about the broken heart of a people of a country that was supposed to be based upon protections of freedoms, liberties and pursuits of happiness; yet all is sold out, stolen by the avarice of so few who have no regard for the welfare of the electorate at large, depending instead on the darkened heartless mindset that lives in the smoke filled rooms of illicit power.
