Why Are Democrats Acting Like This?
Am I here right now? Did America really elect Donald Trump 45th President of the United States of America? And how could this guy beat the tremendous odds against him including himself? Especially himself.
People don’t like change and Trump represents a gamble never before undertaken by the American people. How did it happen? It happened because of Americanism. What is Americanism? It is a spirit of rugged individualism inspired by roughly 10,000 years of collectivism which is the antithesis of individualism.
Let’s set the table for answering the question posed by the title of this post.
This is simply a matter of two worldviews: self-actualization (Americanism) as opposed to self-worth being defined by one’s willingness to obey the top of the societal caste hierarchy. For the first time in history, men said “no” to the caste system.
What is the caste system? It is predicated on the idea that the masses are totally depraved and will destroy themselves unless ruled over by preselected mediators. The mediators serve a cosmic force or god of your choice. Caste has utterly dominated all of human history until the American Revolution. This is why the Protestant claim of historical uniqueness among religions is utterly laughable. Protestantism’s “inability of man” doctrine is the same old worn out historical song and dance with some modifications here and there. Martin Luther nor John Calvin were original thinkers and I seriously doubt God was much impressed with either of them.
Nevertheless, Protestant scholars insist that Luther and Calvin were God’s anointed. So, which church counsel was it when God attended and established such? Never happened. So, why should we take their word for it? Because they are God’s preselected representatives to save His people from self-destructive ignorance…and because they say so. And how do you become one of these rulers? You buy the privilege by attending a Protestant seminary.
Finally, men stood up and rejected this nonsense that licensed elitists to rule over other men. Furthermore, Americanism will never go away because humanity has tasted of it for over 200 years. For the most part, humanity will never go back to collectivism. The American experience connects with how man was created: free, and individually responsible for the sum and substance of their own lives before God.
Human experience is a tension between fears of failure leading to death and established self-confidence. It is a tension between the ability to be free and an inability to be free while believing the latter will lead to death and the destruction of mankind. Supposedly, mankind must be saved from itself by the elitists. Remember, elitism is defined by the belief that gods or cosmic powers preselect knowers to save mankind from its totally depraved self.
Only problem is, who are the real elitists? Who are the elitists who are best capable to usher in the utopia of Plato’s Republic? Throughout human history wars have supposedly settled that issue. But at any rate, America began as a run of the mill caste system church state. The Puritan version of such drove the colonials to demand liberty or death. America was NOT founded on Christianity, it was founded on the freedom of man and the ability of man to be free. The founders of Americanism were a mixed bag of people who agreed on the freedom of man. That’s the core factor that united them, not the because aspect; man is free because…. The founders of Americanism were not united on why man is free, but on the principle that man is indeed free. Some said that such was “self-evident” while others said God made it so. Religion was not the primary uniting issue.
Now let’s talk about crash and burn politics. Sometimes a system is so deeply entrenched in a society that the only hope for change is to destroy the system and hope something better comes out the ashes. To first destroy the present system is the only real hope for something better. What came over the pond and established colonial America has never gone away. After the American Revolution it moved South and eventually incited the American Civil War. A cursory observation of history will identify the South as the post-Revolution remnant of Puritan caste. Historically, the Democratic Party was founded on and came out of the Southern caste system which of course included slavery which is fundamentally driven by caste.
In our day, even though Protestants disagreed with President Obama on many issues, they saw him as the only hope in crashing Americanism with the hope that the same old song and dance would rise from the ashes. Remember, Protestantism was founded and chartered as a church-state and was the primary negative inspiration for Americanism’s separation of church and state. The present-day New Calvinist movement that has taken over the Protestant church and is returning it to its former tyrannical roots understands how this all works. Caste governments give those who control blocks of population a place at the tyrannical table. In their endeavor to return America to the glory days of Calvin’s Geneva, they must destroy Americanism at any cost and hope their control of a large block of people will give them bargaining power with the new government. That’s crash and burn politics.
But on the other side, we have the same thing. Americans who are of Americanism have sensed over the years that caste is taking over via both Parties. Like WWF wrestlers who fight in public and go out to drink beer together afterwards, Democrats and Republicans play golf. President Bush’s seemingly honorable refusal to criticize Obama is really based on his respect for fellow elitists. This is also why he gave Hillary Clinton a kiss-n-hug at Nancy Reagan’s funeral. Be sure of this; she rolled in her grave accordingly.
This is why Americanism elected Donald Trump; crash and burn politics, the present system has to go at any cost while hoping that the Donald will bring back Americanism out of the ashes. Ok, so, now you’re going to point out Trump’s tyrannical side but that’s not the point. The point follows: Trump is a better shot at a return to Americanism than Hillary Clinton; that’s how crash and burn politics work. It’s not either/or, it’s the best gamble. This alone is why Trump correctly stated that he could shoot somebody in Central Park and still rise in the polls. He gets it.
Now we get to why Democrats are acting like they are completely unhinged, because they are, over Trump’s victory. Answer: fear of self-dependence leading to the destruction of humanity, and the loss of power to control the masses by the political elite represented by two parties: Caste Light (Republican), and Caste Lager of the stout ale variety (Democrat). Whether scotch and water or straight up, Americanism is sick of both. For crying out loud, football and baseball are even being politicized; and that’s were red-blooded Colonial Revolutionaries will draw the line. Crash and burn time. In addition, remember that many Trumpers even threatened actual revolution if Hillary was elected.
Hence, anything Trump said or did was completely beside the point.
So, in conclusion, this is why Democrats are acting the way they are acting: fear of two things; freedom is supposedly like handing a toddler a loaded pistol, and loss of elitist power that satisfies the sin of control-lust.
