Trump’s Ulterior Motive

There is no voter fraud of ANY consequence. Also “Findings show 90% drop in illegal entries in 10 years” which contradicts mr. trump’s most recent statement today “you will never, ever be ignored again” referring to the apparent ineptness of the Obama administration. Really?  Obama already basically stopped southern border crossings and even deported 2 million. So what did the electorate vote for then? What exactly is mr. trump going to do more than this?

Think of it this way.  Voter fraud is real.  If I can convince you of that, then you will agree that we need “tougher” measures for voting next time, yes?!  I thought so..that is what mr. tump wants you to believe about the first so he can get you to go along with the second so he can make voting harder in places where he does poorly so he lock down the 2018 and 2020 electoral cycles.  We don’t need a lie to work on making our electoral system better in many ways. We only need a lie to get us angry enough that we would “do anything” he asks us to do. Think about it carefully America.This wall is the height of folly.

For those already asking in your minds whether I believe in having to provide identification to vote, here’s my answer.This is an issue I can bend on. It makes 100% sense that this should and could be the case. I can’t find one reason for this not to be so. Now the question comes in the implementation. What I am sympathetic to is arguments that human nature has taken a simple issue and turned it into the basest of levels where it should not be. Our desire to make sure “our” side “wins” is a very base level of humanity rooted, however, in our biological need for survival and so is understandable. But what we needed to survive 1000 years ago is different from what we need to survive today. Consequently, I think we can let go of our biologically induced survival instincts just a little (by first recognizing what’s driving us) and open ourselves to being vulnerable and letting all sides speak to find a way forward together. By all means, we should be able to have everyone in the country obtain an ID and do so in a way that 100% have this. But I might argue that we should not enforce overly restrictive voter rules BEFORE this is accomplished. Then it will be equal for all and the issue will be settled with all sides winning and no possibility for politics or our basest natures getting involved.

Trump’s wall is not only not needed but it will play to our basest instincts.  It is not needed, will cost us much more than it will ever be worth and has already upset and embarrassed our third largest trading partner.

Here’s the deal: The “wall” is a trump trope for – “THEY are the reason for your anger and your forgotten, shitty lives” (I’m accurately cribbing here from his campaign and inaugural speeches) and “I alone can fix your shitty lives”. That is what the “wall” is. C’mon America – wake up. You say you don’t want more national government but then you put all your eggs in this national government monster and this wasteful expenditure of “wall money” that will cost waaayyyy more than 25 Billion with decades of upkeep. Try hundreds of billions my friends and you asked for it.
