L'Amérique de Trump

Le pays imaginaire TrumpLand

 

Geographically, Donald J. Trump won most of the land area of the United States. A country consisting of areas he won retains more than 80 percent of the nation’s counties.

While Trump country is vast, its edges have been eroded by coastal Democrats, and it is riddled with large inland lakes of Clinton voters who were generally concentrated in dense urban areas.

Jacques Le Bris's insight:

US an Oligarchy not a democracy concludes Princeton Study

US an Oligarchy not a democracy concludes Princeton Study | Epic pics | Scoop.it

A report from Princeton and North Western Universities indicates that the U.S Political system is geared towards serving the interest of special interest groups and organizations.  No wonder the public hates Congress with such gusto. Congress Ratings dropped to an all-time low of 11%. Why are these thieves still in office, if the public cannot stand their guts; well that is because Congress controls the Guns and the butter (well, the banks do, but the banks are sharing the same bed with these concubines, so that point is moot). Contrast this to Putin, who enjoysratings more than 80%, no wonder Congress is Pissed off at him. They can’t stand the fact that Russians love their president.

This is what the report concluded

The US government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country’s citizens, but is instead ruled by those of the rich and powerful, a new study from Princeton and Northwestern Universities has concluded.

The report, entitled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens, used extensive policy data collected from between the years of 1981 and 2002 to empirically determine the state of the US political system.

After sifting through nearly 1,800 US policies enacted in that period and comparing them to the expressed preferences of average Americans (50th percentile of income), affluent Americans (90th percentile) and large special interests groups, researchers concluded that the United States is dominated by its economic elite.

The peer-reviewed study, which will be taught at these universities in September, says: “The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.”

Researchers concluded that US government policies rarely align with the preferences of the majority of Americans, but do favour special interests and lobbying organisations: “When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and with organised interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favour policy change, they do not get it. Full Story

A prestigious Institute in the USA has come to the same conclusion that the public arrived decades ago. Namely, those at the top are so rotten that the only solution is to carve them out forcefully and painfully.  What is even more comical is that we in the U.S points fingers at Russia for being an oligarchy, when a top-notch institution in the U.S states that we are in fact the oligarchs. So all the claims the U.S. makes against are moot. What we have here is a clear case of the pot calling the kettle black.

Le pays imaginaire ClintonLand

 

Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly won the cities, like Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City, but Mr. Trump won many of the suburbs, isolating the cities in a sea of Republican voters.

Mrs. Clinton’s island nation has large atolls and small island chains with liberal cores, like college towns, Native American reservations and areas with black and Hispanic majorities. While the land area is small, the residents here voted for Mrs. Clinton in large enough numbers to make her the winner of the overall popular vote.
