the working man's Trump card

Jimmy Dore, whose show I sometimes watch, is just as concerned as I am about the increasing income gap between rich and poor.

Here he makes some very interesting points and calls the problem perfectly. The dissatisfaction with the political elite has helped create Donald Trump and Jimmy thinks that the next version will be improved, easier to elect and might not be such a buffoon.

People wondered how in spite of making mistake after mistake Trump still managed to maintain the attention of the working poor. Yes the disenfranchised who don't see Hillary Clinton as an answer to their problems because she represents more of the same. Note how I am not saying that Trump is the answer but that clearly the electorate is unhappy with the status quo and perhaps for good reason.

America has the largest income gap between rich and poor among the world's top 20 industrialised nations and eventually its going to bite them in the rear.

Please watch...

  1. I agree that the income and wealth disparity is huge and unsupportable, and like climate change could be the fire under the US's kettle of frogs that kills ours and the global economy and security. I have already voted for Hillary and it seems inevitable (thankfully) that Trump will fail, and I dearly hope that Hillary and all will recognize and address this growing problem.
