Our New BIG Worry in this Insane Election

The stress of this election this year is felt by almost everyone and not just in our Country. The stressor is the GOP Candidate for President, Donald Trump. He’s not only stressing out the other Candidates for President, the Democratic Party and recently the Republican Party, but also many Nations of the World. The only person, it seems, that is not stressed by Trump is the leader of Russia, Vladimir Putin. More on him later.

The New Big Worry is what Trump’s followers will do if and when Trump loses, which is a good bet right now. Trump has been whipping up his supporters from the start by attacking the minorities, Immigrants, Mexicans, Muslims, Women, Blacks. He’s even found a way to tear down Veterans, people with disabilities and anyone who is against him, recently the Media. And all this in front of cheering crowds of a mixture of people at his rallies. The mixture includes members of the KKK, White Supremacists and Neo Nazis along with a great amount of bigoted people who have been suppressed for years and have surfaced recently with our first Black President.

Now Mr. Trump is losing in the polls and is whipping up his supporters by telling them the election system is rigged. Because he is losing! His ego won’t allow him to see that he is the only reason he is losing this election. So at his rallies he blames Hillary Clinton and the Democrats and also, now, the Republicans who are all working against him. He’s whipping his supporters up to the point that his supporters are now threatening armed rebellion.

Trump wants his supporters to go to polling places and make sure that Buses full of immigrants, sent by Hillary or the Democrats, can’t vote at the polls.

From the Boston Globe: Warnings of Conspiracy Stokes Anger among Trump Faithful

At a time when trust in government is at a low point, Trump is actively stoking fears that a core tenet of American democracy is also in peril: that you can trust what happens at the ballot box.

His supporters here said they plan to go to their local precincts to look for illegal immigrants who may attempt to vote. They are worried that Democrats will load up buses of minorities and take them to vote several times in different areas of the city. They’ve heard rumors that boxes of Clinton votes are already waiting somewhere.

And if Trump doesn’t win, some are even openly talking about violent rebellion and assassination, as fantastical and unhinged as that may seem.

Here’s Bill Maher talking with Fareed Zacaria on CNN about Donald Trump and his followers:

What do you think? Will we have problems with Trump’s supporters after the election?

    “Understanding is Not the Problem.”+
    Great analysis of Trump voters in rural American by someone who grew up among them. I think it’s important to realize the problem democrats face in attempting to reach out to the other side.

    “The problem isn’t “coastal elites don’t understand rural Americans.” The problem is rural America doesn’t understand itself and will NEVER listen to anyone outside their bubble.”

    “…In deep red, white America, the white Christian God is king, figuratively and literally. Religious fundamentalism is what has shaped most of their belief systems. Systems built on a fundamentalist framework are not conducive for introspection, questioning, learning, change. When you have a belief system that is built on fundamentalism, it isn’t open to outside criticism, especially by anyone not a member of your tribe and in a position of power. ”

    “…It doesn’t matter how “understanding” you are, how well you listen, what language you use…if you are viewed as an outsider, your views are automatically discounted. I’ve had hundreds of discussions with rural white Americans and whenever I present them any information that contradicts their entrenched beliefs, no matter how sound, how unquestionable, how obvious, they WILL NOT even entertain the possibility it might be true. Their refusal is a result of the nature of their fundamentalist belief system and the fact I’m the enemy because I’m an educated liberal. At some point during the discussion, “That’s your education talking,” will be said, derogatorily, as a general dismissal of everything I said. ”

    On Rural America: Understanding Isn’t The Problem

    As the aftermath of the election of Donald Trump is being sorted out, a common theme keeps cropping up from all sides-”Democrats failed to understand white, working class, fly-over America.” Trump…
