America, America - The 2016 Presidential Election


We had blinders on

Thought that Trump would be defeated; and completely out of touch when it came to number, passion, and impact of Donald Trump's supporters. 

***

History books contain many instances of victorious armies on pillaging sprees. In today's world it takes a different form. There are clear signals about the goals and plans that Trump administration would take. 

List of  of likely Cabinet appointees reflects Trump is wasting no time in in rewarding those whose support made him the winner.   The list includes the usual suspects, extremists salivating at the prospect of beimg empowered to follow their agenda. 

With both Houses of Congress under Republican control, Trump administration would be in strong position to weaken or rescind legislations passed under previous administrations.  And new legislations would be pushed to enable special interest groups to achieve their goals. There is nothing to stop them. The Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling in 2010 lifted restrictions on financing of political campaigns.  



We can only wait for actions of the Trump administration. At the end of 4 years, if the voters remain supportive then we must face the fact that the 2016 election was not an aberration.  

"The will of the mass of the people must prevail."
----Alcuin (735-804),in a letter to Charlemagne

 It was a fair election. Trump won under existing rules for Electoral College although he failed to secure majority in popular vote count.
