I was relaying 'the common person' tag on the disassociated and detached people of our country. I wasn't being egotistical and making a superiority claim.
Opinion polls back up my claim of why people voted Brexit and similarly why they've voted Trump in the US. It's the feeling of the Establishments being against them that makes them vote for change (whether that change be right or wrong)
There is danger in Trump.
He’s a man with authoritarian impulses, a conspiracy theorist’s bent, and a taste for vengeance. He has an alarming temperament, little impulse control, and less decency. He has a demagogue’s instinct for finding enemies and a bully’s instinct for finding their weaknesses. He is uninterested in policy, unrestrained by shame, and unbound by norms.
He surrounds himself with sycophants and enablers, and he believes both the facts and the falsehoods he finds congenial.
TRUMP = BOSH
He's just the man who was opportunistic enough to use the anger felt towards a generation (or more) of failed politicians to his advantage.
He's built his campaign on targeting communities that have had the heart ripped out of them as factories, mines and workshops have closed taking jobs and a sense of community and identity with them. Politicians have paid lip service to the issues but have never really cared or worked for these people. Trump won't either of course but he's spoken to them and used them to further his own aims by at least acknowledging them.
Merkel and Hollande will be next to feel the peoples anger, liberalism has had it's day for the time being, I just hope it doesn't go too far right?
Expect to see more of these over the Middle East with the usual out come of civilians getting killed.
The worrying thing is that the republicans now hold the presidency, the Senate and Congress, this means Trump can do more or less what he likes and they will have to vote in favour of him
On a more positive note there is now plenty of work for brickies.

I said to my wife he will win, you cannot deny that he loves America, they are a very theatrical people; and he is a very theatrical man.
All that protesting is the same as Brexit it will all boil over once the lefties realise that there is nothing they can do...
There would be little protest if Hillary would of won because it would of been more of the same, but this is a massive upset - of course there will be protest - lefties love a protest - since the days of tree hugging, and chaining themselves to railings lol.
America its all good, he might even surprise you. Worst case is he does exactly what you think he will, and there will be no surprise
