NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

Donald Trump spoke to thousands at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck, North Dakota yesterday after clinching the GOP nomination for President of the United States.

Whatever else you think about him, he talked a lot of sense when it came to energy policy.

    From the Telegraph report (link above):

    ‘Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump unveiled an “America first” energy plan he said would unleash unfettered production of oil, coal, natural gas and other energy sources to push the United States toward energy independence.’

    That should stoke up a bit of ‘discussion’😉

    Now if he’ll just follow through with those concepts. Of course, there’s the little issue of actually being elected.

    If this goes down right, it’ll be literal chaos on the streets in major US cities.

    On what is written, I cannot fault him. If he only can….

    “Now if he’ll just follow through with those concepts. Of course, there’s the little issue of actually being elected.”

    The USA has one of the lowest voter turnouts for a (nominally) democratic country. We are down to about 40% in presidential elections. It is easy to understand why this is so. The candidates are selected by the two “Major” political parties and it makes very little difference who gets elected. All candidates have been bought and paid for by the “Donor Class” which means nothing significant is going to change no matter who wins. Given that, why bother to vote?

    In 2012 the “Choice” was Romney/Obama; in 2008 McCain/Obama and in 2004 Kerry/Bush. Not one of these candidates offered anything I cared about so my vote went to “Write In” candidate Boris Johnson (I am from Wales) while my wife voted for Salvador Uribe (she is from Colombia). This year Boris won’t be getting my vote.

    In 2016, I will be voting for Donald Trump because he has pledged to do something I care about. Even if he fails it is enough that he will try. Trump proposes to return the control of K-12 education to the local community and to kill “Common Core”. I helped to create eight charter schools and the main point of that effort was to cut the control wires emanating from Washington. Common Core was an attempt to re-centralize control.

    Then I noticed that Trump’s campaign offers ideas that will improve the prospects of people who produce wealth (aka workers). They have seen their earnings stagnate while the people who re-distribute wealth (bankers, lawyers and politicians) have prospered. These ideas will enable Trump to win the support of many Democrat voters just as Ronald Reagan did.

    The only way to stop Trump now is assassination. Failing that he will win in a 45+ state “Landslide”. He might even win California and Illinois. He won’t win because Hillary Clinton is a flawed candidate or because Bernie Sanders is a crazy socialist. Trump will win because his ideas make sense to “Ordinary Americans”. Donald Trump already has more primary voters than any GOP candidate in history. Expect him to set records in the general election on November 8 owing to the enthusiasm he has created. Voter turnout may reach 60%.

    In the longer term I hope that Trump will change the Republican party. At the very least the selection of presidential candidates should be taken away from the corrupt party elite and the “Donor Class”. Votes should matter.

    Even that he is saying such things without the sky falling will encourage other less courageous doubting politicians to fight back against “Climate” stupidity.

    Am I the only one old enough to remember when Ronald Reagan was going to be a disaster and a cause of immediate nuclear war or economic collapse? Of course, it must have been all those huge temperature rises (as predicted) which has altered my memory.

    I think Trump and Bernie have changed the selection process.
    With Trump he thought it would cost about 50 million or less to get to South Carolina and he spent
    about 9 million of his own money. And Bernie got huge amount from small donations and didn’t start with a lot of money. So if rich enough one repeat what Trump did, or if follow Bernie way of doing it, one doesn’t need a lot money. One could argue that Bernie was helped a lot because he was running against a Clinton who has high unfavorable in her own party- but it should still give some hope, that one doesn’t need start with huge pile of cash to have chance win the primary.

    I had a conversation with a young fearful lefty who’s terrified. I said to secure power, clever politicians need to know what to theatrically project and say, but then with power comes responsibility and what politician ever does everything they promise?? …which prompted genuine relief & laughter.
