Thought of the Day. Berners Who Voted Trump. December 8, 2016

Instead of merely posting status updates on Facebook, I am now posting each apothegm, thought, observation, and witticism, here, as a Thought Of The Day.

Today’s Thought:

Like many Berners, I supported Trump over Hillary. We did not want another Obama term. We wanted the wars to end, we wanted job killing trade deals rejected. We wanted progressives to take over the Democratic party.

None of those would ever happen under Hillary. They may not happen under Trump either, but at least there is a chance.



Armory Notes:

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

    • Trump’s cabinet picks are no worse than Obama’s. There hasn’t been a progressive in the Executive branch of government since Henry Wallace was FDR’s vice president. None in any cabinet since. No Assistant Secretaries. No Department heads. None. They have all been right-wing capitalists with varying views on social issues.


  1. Trump is just too erratic – he has the stability of a bolt of lightning – but even that is not as scary as investor state dispute settlement tribunal corporate racketeering that is so loved by Obama.
    Only the Almighty can figure out how Obama could drive a wedge into the Democratic Party over such an obviously unlawful and illegitimate corporate-control scheme. I hope that the College of Electors will go over the legitimacy issues concerning the candidacies of Trump and Hillary – and Americans might consider communicating with their state Electors – and discuss the evidence of disqualification. These electors may give Trump conditional approval so long as he is compelled to act in good faith at all times. That may help.
