Here in the United States, there is a presidential candidate, a businessman-turned-politician, who is leading the polls for his political party. I prefer not to name him; he feeds on media coverage, good or bad. I’ll call him PC. The slogan of his campaign is “Make America Great Again.”

PC promises to resolve the problem of illegal immigrants living in the USA. In his estimation, most of the illegal immigrants from Mexico are criminals. For readers who don’t already know, his solution is to build a wall along our border with Mexico and have the Mexican government pay for it, because they are making lots of money doing business with the U.S. Will building a wall to shut us in from Mexico and the rest of Central America make us great again?

    Any candidate who promises to build a wall or deport millions of persons from “American soil”, without co$t, is planning to govern outside of “checks & balances”.
    The American nation abhors the semblance of a “succession to the throne”.
    Similarly, the American nation is wary of a “family dynasty”.
    I am quite confident that the American nation will not elect a dictator.

    Donald Trump has tap in on a deep seated anger of many, mostly poor, white Americans. They see a black President, immigrants crossing the border into America, gays getting privilges and so forth. They think America is being taken away from them. Here come TRump promising to make America better for them.
    Its more noticeable in the south. Many of these guys are in the lower socio/economic level, were at a picnic having a good time for several years.
    Now they realise they have to compete for a living and the gravvy train has left. They dont like that.
    Trump is giving them false hopes. The easy days are gone for them.

    They are also unaware of America’s role in driving Latin Americans to our southern border, seeking refuge and job opportunities.
