Trumping The Polls

.
The US presidential election has shown us something, it’s ultimately the people who can decide an election, not the political establishment, social activists and certainly not the media.

All kinds of tricks are used in elections such as calling a certain candidate’s supporter’s names or saying the polls have said who the winner will be while suggesting the polls are never wrong.

But wrong they are and they were wrong big time. Before the US election Hillary was said to be the winner by a massive margin and as we know that did not happen.

Many polls, such as this one by Huffington Post, declared Hillary the winner before the actual election

Now there’s mock soul searching by the media and others on why it did not go how they had wanted it to. They’re blaming non-existent racism, misogyny, they’ll probably even blame Bush the same way Obama constantly did during his presidency.

What it really comes down to is more and more people are waking up to how they are being manipulated and used to keep an elite group of people firmly entrenched in their in lording over us while ripping us off in the process.

Polls may be useful in gauging public views on various issues but as an election tool they are a load of nonsense designed to sway your vote and create talking points for election news shows.

So next time around completely ignore the political establishment, social activists along with the media and their fantasy world polls. It’s your vote, not theirs. Vote wisely and vote like you mean it.

Trump Trumps, The Left Whine (As Usual!)




















The left cry racist at those who disagree with them. Usually race has nothing to do with it but the cries of racist come all the same.

Many white people in America voted for Obama, twice, but the general rhetoric from the left has been to call white people racist, especially when they disagree with any of Obama’s policies. There is no legitimate way to disagree, if you don’t accept things like the ever increasing debt, the overly expensive Obamacare and the increasingly divided America you’re a racist. Somehow……

And as an added bonus if you question things like the mythical gender pay gap or do not support taxpayer funded abortion up to nine months and beyond or you’re not inclined to vote for Hillary you’re automatically a misogynist.

Never-mind if you supported Bernie Sanders and were less than impressed with the Super Delegate deal, question Hillary and you’re out of order and if anything, how dare you even question, just vote for who you’re told to vote for!

Right from the get go the left have been calling Trump racist and a misogynist. Trump associates with and employs females and people of different ethnic backgrounds. The cries of racist are just another act of bullying and crying wolf by the left. They’ve done that way too often so even if somebody they labelled actually was racist etc. there’s no way anyone could believe them, they have absolutely no credibility remaining whatsoever.

Not that the left has missed a beat, the name calling continues and they as usual continue to show us their true colours and contempt for democracy.

It’s not about race, never was and never will be but to address what the issues really are would force the left to address the very real shortcomings of the ideology they live by.

Big Debt? No Big Deal To The Democrats



Some on the Democrat side of the impending US election like to squawk that Obama has performed miracles with the US economy. The deficit is down apparently and job numbers are up, thanks to Obamacare many people now have health coverage. Apparently Hillary Clinton is set to continue with Obama’s legacy of performing miracles.

For many people though the cost of living is up. That’s because the Obama miracles caused their full time job to be converted into a part time job to avoid Obamacare levies with the added bonus in some cases of the employee still expected to do the same amount of work. With less money coming they are also badly placed to face cost of living increases that have hit people to fund Obamacare.

In other cases some full time jobs have become two part time jobs which has had a corresponding impact on job numbers. Through the magic of turning one full time job into two part time jobs unemployment figures are reduced. Yay Obamacare. You’ll have to work harder for less but you’ll have health coverage for when you crack under the strain. (You had it before but with your own doctor but never-mind that, you can say the economy is better!)

One thing that has increased during Obama’s eight years in office and increased massively is the national debt. When he took office in 2009 the debt was already way too high at $11,909,829,003,511.75. By the time he leaves the debt will be nearly doubled at around $19,391,704,027,667.12.

In other words the ‘better economy’ under Obama is a smoke and mirrors job funded by debt, debt and more debt.

So it’s not really a matter of Obama doing wonders with the US economy, it’s more a matter that it’s a wonder the US economy is still even functioning.

For the left though the debt he's left for taxpayers is an achievement beyond belief, Obama has spent more of other peoples money than anyone else in history.

And on a related subject, while the debt is measured against the GDP the entire GDP is not actually available for servicing the debt. The current GDP is approximately $18 trillion and the US government gets approximately $3.25 trillion dollars of that. The debt is serviced from the sum received by the US government which has other commitments as well from pensions to infrastructure.
