“What is the real allure?”
The presidential race between Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump was a serious showdown. One for ages, you had a career politician in Hilary Clinton and a businessman with no political experience in Donald Trump. But, in the end, Donald Trump is the one who stood victoriously with the win. But there has been something that has stuck out in the election and the aftermath. And that is the surge of White voters in America behind President Trump. Does that mean he is “their” president? Or does this election win mean that the Conservative base is back where they need to be? I have a few theories as to why the White male and female base voted Trump.
During the race of President Obama, the ideology was, “Change We Believe In.” But when voters didn’t feel like they got change, it went far right. And you think to yourself, “How could that be?” How could it be that a president that so many rallied behind be this pushed against? When you look at the election between Obama and Romney, the race was quite close., unlike that of Obama and McCain. A massive close in on the 2012 election should have been proof that a major shift was taking hold. And it was coming from the predominantly White community. Could it be the economy, foreign relations, immigration, terrorism, or health care. Either way, in 2016, the start for what would be a historic moment was about to take hold.
The majority; the group who for so long dictated not only their lives, but others. And for whatever reason, now feels as if that stronghold is being lost. But let me clarify something more about this base: White male-Conservative-Heterosexual base. This base has this feeling of under attack for comments and beliefs. This is the core demographic that feels that illegal immigrants are removing what has long felt like their own. And the expectations for what a man is in society is now being determined by a feminine agenda. And Donald Trump has been seen as the answer to the problems. And if you observe how he (Trump) has carried himself in office, it appears he is catering to this longstanding base.
Women for Hilary Clinton; well at least that was the ploy. But whatever the reason for Hilary running, it didn’t work because the White female base came out in large numbers to support Trump. And it really expressed something on the other side, which is doesn’t matter if a qualified woman runs; a large portion of White women would much rather have a Conservative White male in charge. Which kills the ideology that so many women hate Trump. But is all this true, or is there a lot more fear coming from a White community that really doesn’t exist.
What is the real threat in society? Well, the real threat is not illegal immigration, it’s technological innovation. There was a story here in New York City about a pizza delivery guy seized at a military base after he was found out to be illegal. With an open vacant pizza job, no one wanted the gig. Which is by the way, the vast majority of illegal jobs. So if you are uninterested in gigs like that, you won’t do much by removing illegals. Because the jobs that are supposed to be taken by illegals are specialized jobs that are shrinking. Meaning, if Trump every illegal from America, life wouldn’t change for those behind the move. Doesn’t matter, the inevitable is taking hold, and that’s machines replacing manpower.
