    Default Trump Is Up Against a Demographic Time Bomb

    Trump and his acolytes are facing a demographic time bomb, and the more he does to alienate everyone except his base, the worse it will get for everyone. The United States is governed today by a generation of politicians who are at the end of their careers and reflect a political era that is drawing to a close. In them, we are seeing the last gasps of 1950s America, as the baby boomers come to the end of an era in which they were the political majority and in control of industry.

    Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. Albert Einstein

    America's future is bright, not white

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    Trump is the self destruct option.

    A mix of character assassinations & failure to his promises makes himna disaster for Repubs.

    Ronald Reagan sucked.

    He caused an immediate blow to collapse the Soviet Empire by supporting Afghanis & outspending on military.

    He also is causing a more slow, grinding & painful collapse to the American Empire through his Illegal Alien appeasements & amnesty.

    What I see as the most destructive, is the income and wealth disparity, caused by the GOP plutocratic economical policies, such as trickle down economics.

    Can't say I support Reaganomics.

    However, the high charged issues are mostly over Illegals & guns.

    The Dems attempts to disarm guns.
    The Repubs attempts to mass deport.
    Are
    Much more likely to cause chaos & civil war here.

    Reaganomics is still very popular with the GOP.

    Illegals are a very high charged issue.

    Many feel very strongly & feel abuse is involved on both sides.

    GHW Bush was right when he called it Voodoo Economics.

    There won't be a civil war. There's barely civil disruption. This isn't the 1960s. The parties have shrunk because they've both moved toward extremes. The Independents are larger than either party. IF some extremists tried to start a civil war, their leaders would be taken down and their followers imprisoned.

    This is way worse than the 1960s.

    Dems & Repubs back then were hardly different.

    Not the case now.
