The Question is still: Will Trump be President?

Looking at the election system of the US and the US Power Elite one can have great doubts whether there´s true Democracy in the world´s most powerful country. Apart from the fact that in many US States „the winner takes all“ and how this can lead to a real misrepresentation of the majority, the Electoral_College is a very problematic institution, since it could theoretically suspend voter´s will.

The 2016 elections in the US were actually outstanding concerning the rejection both main candidates experienced (not without reasons). It was almost a choice between Small_Pox_and_Cholera. But it resulted – according to existing rules and regulations – in Donald Trump. The man, really an odd choice in a number of aspects, has the advantage of being more linked to old isolationist traditions and thus is not such a threat to World Peace as are Clinton and her backers (addicted to “Regime Change” wars). This the more as Trump has already announced his will to come to better terms with Russia!

Strange enough is in fact that supporters of the Neocon darling Clinton parade under the name “Leftaction“. This possibly even might make Clinton laugh. The complications of the Presidential Elections are quite well described by „The_Atlantic„. Nevertheless the paper likes to do the common Trump bashing while sparing Clinton from being exposed as what she is: a dangerous warmonger!

But „The Atlantic“ is quite well aware of what might happen, if the Electoral College elects Clinton instaed of Trump:

Were the electors to meet on December 19 and decide that Donald Trump is unfit to be president, all hell would break loose. Trump’s supporters, and even some who opposed him, would say the election had been stolen. Their worst fears about America’s “rigged” system of government would be confirmed. The president who the electors chose—even if it were Hillary Clinton, who beat Trump by over a million votes—would lack legitimacy in the eyes of much of the public. It’s unclear whether such a president could effectively govern. Violence might break out. Moreover, once the precedent was set, future electors would become more likely to act independently again. The process of choosing them would grow fraught. America’s entire system of presidential elections would grow unstable.“

If the resulting violence (in which rightist groups might play a considerable role) would go beyond a certain limit it could finally lead to „Martial_Law“.

A good analysis of what all could happen is given by globalresearch showing the war between different factions of the US Power Elite about strategic issues. It appears that at the center of that struggle is the question of whom to attack first: Iran, China or Russia. And so one thing is clear: this isn´t really a battle between „left“ and „right“, it is a battle within that very Power Elite, and various factions try to use the various sections of the people with all their understandable anger for their respective course, at the same time driving divisions further. That also follows the concept „divide and rule“.

It appears very realistic to predict: this is going to be a HOT WINTER!

    Since the United States is (supposed to be) a federal republic and not a pure democracy, why would anyone, other than people who don’t understand the true nature of the US Constitution and the country (which appears to be the case here), expect to find „true democracy“ here? The founders of the United States loathed pure democracy, considering it nothing more than mob rule. The electoral college is an effort to dilute the effects of democracy by introducing elements of federalism. The author needs to study the electoral college and its purpose. It is a „peculiar institution“ and its existence is somewhat counter intuitive.
    Note: Certain forces have been at work since the inception of the Republic to undermine the federalism in the Constitution. The Progessives are the most apparent of those forces nowadays.

      Be sure I´m aware of it. The contrast between this reality and the self presentaion is nevertheless remarkable! And very true, the founders considered „pure Democracy“ as „mob rule“, which is the mental foundation of the „Deep State“!
