Key to Understanding Trump's Appeal to His Base

I have recommended this book several times on DU. I want to recommend it again before Trump gets lost in the history that Americans seem incapable of learning lessons from.

Bandits by Eric Hobsbawm

This book explains why predominantly rural, under educated, poor people would support Trump not in spite of his crimes but because of his crimes. They see the law and the current government as inherently unfair to them and therefore they approve of breaking the law in order to "even the playing field."

If we want to never ever see a Trump elected president in this country again, we need to do away with systemic inequality.

Of course, if you are one of those who wants a fascist coup (government that serves a tiny portion of the wealthiest Americans) you will actively support anything that increases inequality, so that you can then tell those you have oppressed "Hey, it is those (blanks) who are keeping you down through criminal means and it takes a criminal to fight a criminal".

Why is Trump Gutting National Security in His Final days?

Possible answers:

1. Putin intends to invade the Baltic States and wants to be sure the US will not object

2. Putin intends to create a phony 911 to force the US into a new war in the Middle East (probably against Iran) in order to boost the price of oil

3. Among the newly appointed Trump "loyalists" are some KGB trolls who will take this chance to steal US security secrets and plant malicious software in our national defense computer network.Even if the new appointees are vetted, they can then bring in underlings who will fly under the security radar.

4. Jared Kushner wants to raid our national defense secrets so that he will have something to sell once his father-in-law leaves office. This includes raiding domestic spying information that can later be used for blackmail purposes.

5. The new "loyalists" will lay the groundwork for something really bad that will happen during the early days of the Biden administration so they can say "I told you so."

6. Trump is delusional and is dreaming of a white military coup for Christmas.

This would not even have been close

if not for the deliberate kneecapping of the US postal service, the purge of lawful voters from voter rolls, the scary robocalls and all the other tricks that the GOP used this election.
