In America class differences in politics tend to be concealed by other differences, usually race, cultural issues, ideological battles, etc. Trump however, the blue collar billionaire, tapped into the resentment of a great many Americans who have been the losers in global economic changes since the end of the Cold War. The hysterical reaction to Trump’s triumph, at bottom, is largely the reaction of haves who sense that their good life has been placed in jeopardy. The alternative to Trump, seized upon by the Democrats, is the exploded idea of socialism, to turn vastly more Americans into wards of the State. At the same time they would lower our borders and allow tens of millions of low skilled workers into the country to drive down wages permanently, and ensure a permanent, well, at least for a few generations, majority voting bloc. Of course all this is doomed to disaster. The type of welfare state on steroids plans of the Democrats, if they were ever stupid enough to enact them all, would eventually collapse the economy, the prelude to armed revolt by masses of desperate people. We are in a time of massive economic transition around the globe. Trump wants a better deal for most Americans during that transition. Most of his adversaries are in truth loyal only to their class of haves, with everyone else having to be satisfied with life on the welfare dole. They of course will never say this, a good many of them may not even realize this will be the impact of the policies they seek to implement, but objectively that is what a dispassionate look at the facts reveal.
