Donald J. Trump was elected 45th president of the United States of America on the campaign slogan MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN (“MAGA”); but since the General Election on November 8, 2016, MAGA appears to have fully transformed into a MAKING AMERICANS GO APESHIT movement.
Why the insanity?
Interestingly, the insane among We the People do not (yet) appear to be the Trump voters—”The FOLKS” who were, and still are, as mad as hell and not going to take it anymore from “establishment” politicians (the Two-Party Pirates in FOLKS UPSET BY THE CAPITAL KARMA: A Shock and Awe Campaign for Political Reform). Instead, it appears that the majority of Americans going apeshit are members of the Democratic Party. But should anyone (Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, members of other political parties, and those with no political-party affiliation) be comfortable with the fact that The FOLKS have elected a president who appears to be an authoritarian populist-nationalist? Was the United States of America founded upon any of the concepts in the aforementioned description of President Trump? Or was the USA founded upon the principles of the rule of law, individual rights (to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness), and limited government?
Might the real issue be that We the People must deal with our failure to be philosophically correct; i.e., our failure to live within the philosophical paradigm comprising the metaphysics of reality, the epistemology of reason, the ethics of egoism, and the politics of capitalism—the philosophical foundation upon which the Founding Fathers had stood when they declared the independence of the United States of America from Great Britain; and the philosophical framework that housed the Framers who drafted the Constitution for the United States of America and the Bill of Rights?
Might We the People hold ourselves accountable for our failure to be philosophically correct—a failure that has resulted in the election and re-election of representatives in Congress and “graduates” of our Electoral College, many of whom have behaved, and continue to behave, badly? For how much longer will We the People tolerate legislative and executive deficit spending that increases the national (gross federal) debt—behavior that has placed the Federal Government of the United States of America on a course to fiscal implosion?
Will the current Congress and President Trump wake up, step up, and become philosophically correct? If not, will The FOLKS and the remainder of We the People become philosophically correct and elect philosophically correct candidates who will work to eliminate the national debt? Either way, may I introduce you to the platform and policies of the American Capitalist Party—a hypothetical political party with a platform and policies that are philosophically correct? Might it be time to get this party started in order to toss the Two-Party Pirates and President Trump overboard, drain the swamp, etc. in the process of making America great again—like the one time it had been, in 1835, during President Andrew Jackson’s second term, when our Federal Government was debt free? Or, might the Congress and President Trump make a transformation to philosophically correct by adopting the platform and policies of of the American Capitalist Party and then governing in accordance with them?
Hopefully, Mr. Speaker Paul R. Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Addison Mitchell McConnell, Jr., and President Donald J. Trump will “do the right thing,” to wit: become philosophically correct (the new “PC”) and begin to aggressively deal with the sad state of fiscal affairs within our United States Government.
