Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Worst Of All Worlds

Apparently there has been a wedding of Trump with the avid zealots of extreme supply side economics.

Trumps only redeeming quality as a candidate was his willingness to throw populist shade on Republican economic orthodoxy. This was reflected in his support by voters with only a high school degree who really aren't interested in reducing marginal tax rates on top earners. 

So they have wedded an authoritarian narcissist with a starve the poor ideology.
