I agree with most of what you’re saying. However, Trump is a symptom, not the disease. He is merely a continuation of the same policies that came before, which got him elected.

The response to the 2008 crash is a large part of why the next crash is coming. Soon. Also why this crash will be far worse and indeed historic in scale. Trump’s decisions will absolutely make it worse but this crash has been inevitable for at least the last ten years. In fact, it has been coming for much, much longer than ten years.

We cannot continue the partisan blame game. It is neither Republican nor Democrat, it is both. What name is at the top doesn’t matter. What matters is the decisions of our government as a whole and both parties pander, indeed whore themselves openly to WAR Street with no shame.

The response of CONgress has been to give lip service to change while selling every single resource down to our very lives and lives in other countries for capitalist profit with no control. Even as Democrats bemoan Trump’s policies, they vote to increase WAR spending while never opposing his trade powers, war powers, etc. They voted 100% to hand him more money and more power.

So leave names out of it. They are all to blame.
