What does Donald Trump’s election mean and why ALL Americans must be self sufficient!

Hi Peeps,

The “Trump Stump Brigade” will strive to fell the diversity pool that makes America great. This country was built by immigrants and will continue to be defined by them long after he is gone.

While President-elect Trump managed to reach out to many disenfranchised Americans in the rust belt, he also completely alienated a whole sector of the populace he called “Rapists, Drug dealers and Terrorists”; even so far as accusing President Obama of being the founder of ISIS.

Indeed this was an historic election. One for the ages. No doubt this election and results will be studied for years to come. Despite the fact that a percentage between 20% to 36% felt concerned and scared about the future and; even a higher percentage at 63% did not like or trust him, Trump still managed to win the highest office in the land with no political background or understanding of the three branches of government. He stated, “I will ask Congress to convene a special session so we can repeal and replace” Obamacare. If Congress is already IN session, there is no need to convene a special session.

Americans, it appears, have too long held out for hope for a “saviour.” President-elect Trump is not it. The role of the President is to be a Steward; to guide others by example and inclusive action that has a lasting and impactful benefit. What was evidence during this election cycle was that President-elect Trump had to be guided himself and cajoled into certain actions and inactions, as the case may be. This included a halt to his Twitter rants.

During the campaign trail, Secretary Clinton was not the only victim of his off coloured comments. In one instance, he made fun of a disabled journalist and on the other; stated Senator John McCain was not a hero because he was captured. He preferred heroes not to be captured. Melania Trump’s words resounded loud and clear, when during an interview, stated she had “two boys at home.”

President-elect Trump’s loss in his home town of New York, coupled with the upcoming Trump University trial, plus his Twitter and campaign rants, should provide a clear indication of the true personality behind the facade. CNN Political Commentator Van Jones had stated that we are living in a social media world, where bad behaviours are rewarded with increased followers and likes.

Americans can no longer rely on a personal bail out. They must rely on their own steam, their own conviction, their own will power and their creativity. They must also rely on their own research, stop following the herd and; think for themselves. The idea of being self sufficient and self reliant is not a dream. Comfort, complacency and fear has crippled many communities and individuals from action. We must stop waiting around for the next great “Hope.”

We have to STOP “Waiting for Gadot” and get on with life.

We hope that President-elect Trump realises his enormous responsibility to shepard a new era; advance the country forward and; protect the rights of ALL its diverse citizens.
