There is a certain category of voter who thinks we need a businessman at the helm of this country. Do we? What have businessmen done for us lately?
Perhaps their biggest contribution has been to send American jobs overseas. My father used to be a machine tool builder in Cleveland. Now there is an ever-dwindling number of machine tool builders in the United States. Plenty of them in Southeast Asia, however!
If a hypothetical President Trump were in charge, what might he do? For starters, he could send less desirable (i.e. Democrat) voters to Syria, Libya, and Somalia—countries which are in the process of being rapidly depopulated.
He can raise his salary and create new perks for his office. (Isn’t that what billionaire businessmen do best?)
He could find sneaky ways of making his investments worth more (and those of his competitors worth less).
Really, in the end, all American CEOs care about is me, Me, ME, ME! After all, they didn’t get rich by helping losers. And we are all losers, aren’t we?
