What Hillary Clinton Represents:
Hillary Clinton has been involved in politics for the vast majority of her life. She has served as First Lady, Senator of New York state and Secretary of State along with various positions of political influence. She has close ties to the Obama administration, the DNC and many global leaders.
With the amount of ties that Clinton has to establishment politics it is reasonable to portray her as representative of the status quo, big government and business as usual when it comes to our country’s leadership. Everything that Conservatives loath and are wary of. She represents the power behind government, free trade agreements at the expense of our country’s working class and the ever marching path towards globalism.
Now, after reading those comparisons, let’s look at the British empire in the 18th century. The King of England, King George III, oversaw a vast empire at the time of our revolution. The British had colonies across the globe and had major influence with the East Indie Trading Company, which was the predominant mercantile powerhouse of their time. The British had their troops, redcoats, stationed all over the world to maintain their empire, much like the United States has its army/navy deployed around the globe at any given time.
Technology may of changed in the past three centuries, but the government’s desire for power and control has not.
Hillary Clinton perfectly represents the empire of our era. Not only a single country that is a predominant power with nationalism a driving force, but instead a single government that controls world affairs through trade deals, UN resolutions and open-borders. Neither Clinton nor our government wants to rule a country for the purpose of making that country great, but instead want to rule a global government through proxy organizations with fancy names like the International Monetary Fund, which has an amazing amount of international influence for an un-elected body.
What Donald Trump Represents:
It should be glaringly obvious to even the most avid anti-Trump crowd that he represents the raw will of the people against the status quo. He literally has broken every established rule of politics during his campaign, and yet still he has succeeded in winning his party’s candidacy.
Many of the voters supporting Trump refer to themselves as “The Silent Majority” and he has given them leadership along with a movement to call their own.
This silent majority represents the workers, business owners and families who have felt marginalized and overlooked by their current representative government officials. They have repeatedly voted for Republicans who promised to challenge Obama’s unilateral actions, yet time after time they have been let down. These people have tried to make their voices heard through our political system, but nothing ever seems to change for them.
Then here comes Donald Trump. A man that represents the complete opposite of business as usual. He challenges without fear, offers no apologies to his opponents and even stands up to the weak party of Republicans.
He challenges the notion of open borders and a shift towards globalism. He values the working class and seeks to dismantle trade deals that damage their opportunities. Trump even seeks to reduce our countries debt and find innovative ways to create wealth along with saving money. What a revolutionary idea for our government, saving money, in a time that seems like no matter how many billions of dollars they are given, they always will find a way to not only spend it, but ask for more.
What were our forefathers fighting for when they went to war with the largest empire in the world at the time? Their independence from a government body that did not represent their citizens or their best interests.
Our past patriots were few in number, yet rose to challenge the very idea that citizens must also know their place, accepting their government’s ruling, because they are told to accept it by voices louder than their own.
A very close comparison to what our country is facing right now. Those who support Trump, their voices are often drowned out by the government owned media and politicians who seek to keep the status quo as is. These supporters face ridicule and the lose of friends or family over their decision to support Trump. Much like in the Revolutionary War we had the British Loyalists who looked down upon those who wanted their freedom.
You may not agree with Trump’s policies, but I am always astounded when liberals cannot even aknowlege what he represents.
The people who support Trump, they are not the monsters or low-information individuals that they are made out to be. They are regular people who love their country and truly believe that their cause is just.
Can you really fault voters who follow their beliefs with passion and hope?
