Why Donald Trump Could Win the Presidency: LEADERSHIP and BEING RIGHT ON ECONOMICS

As a political centrist, or more correctly, political objectivist, who tries to think in terms of the most sensible stance on the issues rather than on partisanship, we post infrequently on purely political issues.

We did call Obama's first Presidential election win already early in the primaries because it looked like his time had come. People wanted change. It happened.

When the progressive Paul Krugman shows how right Trump is on economics (see the link below) and how badly self-deluded the rest of the outdated recalcitrant Republican Party candidates are at the moment on major economic issues, then it becomes quite clear that something unusual is in the works.

  • what we regard to be the Democratic Party favorite Hillary Clinton's general unsuitability for the Presidency,
  • and the aging old socialist 74-year old Bernie Sanders running for an office that needs a more dynamic and practical President in the present world situation --Sanders would be 75 if elected, the oldest President EVER, and he may be a nice man, but he is not in the right place at the right time
  • it looks to us like Donald Trump has a good chance to win it all and be the nation's next President. He was, like Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, also born in 1946, which looks like a good year -- hey, also our birth year -- but Trump is 69 now, so that age could slowly become a factor, either that or he has to delegate a lot of work to top-notch younger people.
Winning is all a question of being in the right place at the right time.

After winning, being President means "to lead".
It does not mean to be a "trivia fact expert" on political questions or issues.
The President "hires" people to do the work who are experts in their fields.
The President's job is to know what they need to do, and then have THEM do it.

Most of the Presidential candidates need to reassess their priorities,
and to learn something about LEADERSHIP. A few remedial courses?
We see most of them as worker drones, or as extremists for vested interests,
but not as national leaders. Which of them is out there for "us"?

Did someone say "Trump!"

Well, that is what democracy is all about. People CAN choose.
But election day is still a long way off at November 8, 2016.
More than a year to go! It will remain interesting.

  • Sky Earth Native America 2 :
    American Indian Rock Art Petroglyphs Pictographs
    Cave Paintings Earthworks & Mounds as Land Survey & Astronomy
    Volume 2, Edition 2, 262 pages, by Andis Kaulins.

  • Both volumes have the same cover except for the labels "Volume 1" viz. "Volume 2".
    The image on the cover was created using public domain space photos of Earth from NASA.


    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically
    in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
