All Hail Americas confused NeoLiberalism!


The age of Obama was the last gasp of neoliberalism. This lethal fusion of economic insecurity and cultural scapegoating brought neoliberalism to its knees. 

The neoliberal era in the United States ended with a neofascist bang.

At the end of the day Obama is wolf in sheep's clothing. Exactly like HRC he has a public and a private position.He is a gifted speaker who knows how to say all the right, progressive liberal things to get people to go along much better than HRC ever did. But that lip service is where his progressive views begin and stop. It's the very reason none of his promises never translated into actions and I will argue that he was the biggest and smoothest scam artist to enter the white house who got even though that wholly opposed centre-right policies, to flip and support them vehemently. Even when he had the Presidency, House and Senate, he never once introduced any progressive liberal policy. He didn't need Republican support to do it, yet he never even tried.

Most of Trump's voters are gun-obsessed, pathologically super-patriotic, racist and opposed to public healthcare. Their feelings and thoughts have not changed at all. He will have won some protest-votes too. But he won less than McCain and Romney in total. This election has not been decided by support for Trump. This election has been decided by lack of support for Clinton. Even though she won more votes than Trump, she did not win the electoral college. I think that is because she did not pursue a progressive agenda. Fearing to offend any reactionaries who would not vote for her anyhow, she reduced her message to some meaningless phrases. Her campaign was terrible. And probably she also was the wrong candidate to represent determination, hope and courage - after thirty years in politics posing as a new kid on the block is a bit difficult.

The statistics say a lot of people from both parties stayed home. The Democratic Party leadership has been neglecting the decay of its middle and lower classes for years; that's nothing new. The Republican Party has long since gone off rationality in pursuing religious fanatics and racists. Clinton was not a very good candidate, and neither were Trump's opponents in the Republican Party, so that gave an opening to the semifascist Trump. Hopefully, Trump will be fought to a standstill. We will still have to address the problems that produced his success. There is no reason for people to change their feelings and values, but they are going to have to get smarter about what's going on.

Trump lost the popular vote by 2 million, regardless of the rule of the majority. Excluding the ending of the VRA, outright voter suppression, shortening of voting times/days, and classic Republican tactics, the Republicans actually won this election outright, unlike 2000, where electorally and popularly Gore won. They'll be able to load the SC for another couple decades to propagate their backwards policies, and Dem's will be paid off to lose, do nothing, remain weak, and the rich will keep hoarding their wealth. Politics are far more complicated, then parties switching every 8 years. The world over, is suffering from Neo-Liberal policies.
