Is Donald Trump a “Disrupter” In American Politics? I Think Not.
The New York Post recently published an article titled “Buckle up, Trump’s era of disruption has only just begun”. The title seems to suggest that old crazy Donald has sprung a good trick on America and intentionally created bad feelings that will trip legislators up for years to come, when actually nothing could be further from the truth: Donald Trump appealed to Americans from a position of restoring the principles that made this nation great before Obama and his big government came along and messed up everything, and the citizens of America agreed with him and elected him their next president.
One needs to have an extreme parallax position from which to view the American political scene if they think that Donald Trump is a “disrupter” of the current state of politics in America. He has undoubtedly caused a major, shall we say, tidal wave of a ripple for Republicans and Democrats alike, but all he’s done is correct the course of the mighty American ship of state and reintroduced the nation to a rule of law and a subservience to the constitution, both of which are long over due.
After eight years of Obama’s attempt to “fundamentally transform America” Trump provided a breath of fresh air with his insistence on a limited government that was predictable by operating under the laws of the land, duly passed by congress, and enforced by judges who have respect for the constitution and its guiding principles.
So go ahead and blame Trump for his restoration of American values, and ignore the absolute disruption of our nation that Obama promised and delivered, it really doesn’t matter, as long as Trump is allowed to move America out of its unconstitutionally generated slump and move toward an era of making America great again.
