The Trump phenomenon and Philosophy

Flim-flam flip-flop Donald Trump has risen to power by corrupting the willing. The racists and haters, in all their multitude of shapes and forms, simply know they are 'superior' to the others. The only way Trump could fully tap the power of the lost and disgruntled was to lead a cause of 'recovery' to a time of  'good and plenty' and to a philosophy supporting victimhood for the lost and disgruntled that justified how they became 'separate' from the recovering and hopeful.  The Birther idea was born and those who needed an explanation of how a black man became president were supplied with it. He was simply illegitimate. Barack Hussein Obama's color, race, intellect, character, temperament, ambition and drive to help did not disqualify him from becoming President of the United States. The people chose him despite the nagging unsupported racism nature appears to start us off with: the racism that we all must overcome when seeking 'the better angels of our nature': the racism based on the fear of the unknown. People who are different, yet who are also competitors for our necessities; people we can blame our troubles on, like the Christians who blamed the Jews led to Hitler and the holocaust; like the U.S. imprisoning the American Japanese, during World War II. Trump gave the conspiracy seekers the excuse that explained how Obama won over the voters: he was illegitimate "By Birth", and probably by upbringing and religion. He was one of the 'other' and so he must be justly shown to be impure, failing in all things, wrong in all things, evil in all things, evil in all ways. Just as the Jews who had 'killed Christ', who were clannish, who helped each other economically while taking from the non-jews, building their ghettos and working against 'The real Children of God'.

The lesser bigots of the Republican Party had already started the 'Opposition to Obama', the opposition to the 'BLACK MAN' who had won the majority of the people's votes but who was not worthy of the office and power put into his hands.

Nature and history gave us flim-flam flip-flop Donald Trump and he gave us the 'birther movement' and the republicans rewarded him by giving him their Nomination. Obama was to be overcome, his successor was to be defeated, the power to spread the gospel of  bigotry, hate, descension would support the Superiority of the Republican philosophy, of Trump's philosophy, that the emigrant Latino's, the Blacks, Moslems, all foreigners, even women, were inferior, unworthy of sharing any power, unworthy of any respect, simply unworthy, like the 'unclean' of the old Hindu caste system. Apartheid for America, brought to you by flim-flam flip-flop Donald Trump and the Republican party that didn't, and doesn't, oppose him.

When the good people don't raise up in opposition tyranny will prevail. Vote for a future of continued recovery from the Republican mess the republican Bush administration gave us. Vote for a future of rewarded hard work and where our progeny can carry on making a more perfect nation. Don't vote for the lost and disgruntled whiners who believe themselves to be 'The Real Americans'.  We have always repudiated would be Kings, would be saviors, would be 'special people'.  When Jefferson said "All men are created equal" he was also saying no one is created special.
