Donald J. Trump and a Tale of Two Seedlings

Via Dan

On November 8, 2016, the Democrat presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, the most recent blossom on global socialism’s tree, hand-picked to preserve the progressive legacy of Barack Obama, was defeated by Donald J. Trump, a political outsider whose campaign grew directly from the peaceful revolutionary protests and grassroots movement of ordinary American citizens.

Nine people were present at the funeral of Karl Marx in 1883. His “Communist Manifesto” proposed state ownership of all private property, a heavily progressive income tax, abolition of all rights of inheritance, a single state bank, control of media and communication by the state, and a free education of all children in government schools. The seedling of world socialism was transplanted to our county early in the 20th Century. The American progressive movement, the child of the collectivist theory of Marx and the arrogant elitist philosophy of the Fabian Socialists, invested all their hopes in Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to finally achieve worldwide governance by an oligarchy of the chosen few.


  1. I hope he's correct :)

    So far, it does appear that President-elect Trump will do all of those things.

    Whether Trump's presidency is truly successful remains to be seen. But he appears to be acting as he's pledged right now.

    Perhaps most important is the economy and foreign policy. If Trump can improve our economy while avoiding foreign conflicts, I think he'll be a huge success. The other issues, including immigration, I expect he'll be fairly strong on, judging by whom Trump is choosing.

    1. He can't be bought, so I'm sure he will do what he thinks best. My cousin was worried about the quote below, but if it is easier to amend the current program and accomplish the same things, then I see no problem with that except we'll have to change it to Trumpcare. :)

      "Either Obamacare will be amended, or repealed and replaced," Trump told the newspaper. "I told him I will look at his suggestions, and out of respect, I will do that."

  2. If I were Trump, I'd make an appeal to the Left, tell them: "I want to make capitalism beneficial to the working man." And then he could explain how he wants to help people.

    Many seem to believe we have a student loan crisis, for example. But free tuition isn't the only solution.

    We have ideological capitalists and ideological socialists who proclaim to already know the answers to all of society's problems, and indeed the problems of every society on Earth, for all time.

    Ideologues are the problem. Trump needs to side-step them to find nonsocialist ways to improve society.

    Really, I think if he just improves the market wages via trade/immigration, most people will be content with how things are.

    1. He doesn't seem to hold grudges which is rare in politics.
