As strange as it may seem, Donald Trump’s candidacy seems to have contributed to personal hygiene in the United States. A number of people feel that they have to shower after listening to one of his speeches. I have been seriously struggling with the question of what does his candidacy means for politics in the United States. Have we reached such a low point that we can go no lower or is he just a fluke in the system? In the past I wrote a blog every day, but I have stopped because I realized I was becoming repetitive. One of the few repeated themes had to do with debunking the message I kept hearing; the government is bad and all politicians are liars. In fact, that is the campaign mantra of one political party. At face value, it made no sense because candidates from that party were fighting mightily to be elected . . . why would they want to be identified as a liar and become part of something that was so bad? I wrote a number of times that their objective seemed to be to destroy government then went on to explain that as well made no sense because even small children know we need government. Suddenly, there was Trump spouting his debauchery and nonsense. That was not the bad part. The bad part was that people were voting for him. Why would people expend the effort go to his rallies and to vote for him when they will not vote for serious candidates. Are they so filled with hate for their own government that they not only not want the government but actively want work to destroy it. Is it that they no longer understand that it is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. As I repeatedly said in my blogs, they act as if want a plutocracy, an economic dictator. That makes even less sense than for them to want to be politicians or to live without a government. The only thing that makes sense to me is that all their advertisements have convinced us to buy the half empty package with the bright yellow top without caring what is in it.
