I can help Trump win!
The wealth of an elite handful grows greater every day, enjoying an abundance of private planes and luxury cruisers, while 99% of the citizens steadily grow poorer.
Right now, the savings of 69% of Americans is zero, and 30% of them don’t even have 1 dollar (100 yen) in their pockets -- they are completely broke.
Americans are obviously disgusted with this situation.
The most appealing attack that Donald Trump makes on Hilary Clinton is that the politicians, Clinton included, are the ones who created this situation for America.
Trump claims that America is being undermined by other nations and other ethnic groups.
Repeating one extreme statement after another, he says he would prevent the influx of illegals by building a wall at the border with Mexico; start charging 100% of military costs to countries being protected by America, beginning with Japan; stop posing as the world’s policeman; bring business back to America that has moved to countries like China by more than halving corporate taxes that are now the highest in the world; and blames Clinton for other problems such as NAFTA (North America Free Trade Agreement: an agreement for free trade between the United States, Canada, and Mexico), not to mention the TPP, which is destroying American business, and chaos in the Middle East, as well as ISIS (Islamic State); and he’s receiving an overwhelming response.
It’s one thing for Americans to accept the numerous assertions being made by Trump, but when his lack of knowledge and intelligence was exposed during yesterday’s debate in front of hundreds of millions of people, in America and around the world, his popularity faded.
In order to defeat Clinton, with her wealth of experience and knowledge, Trump should take lessons from Jun’ichiro Koizumi (Prime Minister of Japan, 2001-2006). Rather than debating each and every one of his plentiful popular assertions, he should create a “mantra” that includes them all.
By chanting “no reform without pain, no growth without reform”, Koizumi won elections, passed 74 bills through the National Diet with lightning speed, and as he had been requested by President Bush, destroyed personal savings of the elderly by privatizing postal savings and exposing them to the American vultures, and, under the doctrine of structural reforms, allowed Americans to intrude and invest in hitherto privileged sanctuaries of Japanese business.
I have just sent in a “mantra” to Trump via one of the affiliated Republican think-tanks.
It says, “The election on November 8 is not a presidential election. It’s a national referendum on Amerixit.” … Now, that’s a strategy the mass media can fall in love with.
Disengage from past policies, disengage from the stolen America, disengage from being policeman of the world, which only helps competitors like Japan, disengage from the mess (confusion) in the Middle East created by Clinton, and disengage from the government of the elites, like Clinton.
If, immediately before Election Day, he goes around shouting “Without Amerixit, we can’t make America great again!” he’ll win for sure.
As for all those assertions he likes to make -- after he’s grabbed the reins of power, he’ll have plenty of time to explain them.
This is a “winning policy.”
Not only America, but the whole world has reached a cul-de-sac, and needs a scrapper so it can be scrapped (destroyed).
And Trump is Mr. Scrap.
