    Meghan identified the scam of Trumps election. Trump said make America great again. Meghan said it was already great. Trump appealed to the working middle class that didn't have it great. Meghan talked about the upper class who have always had it great.

    He said what they wanted to hear. Did he care or have a plan ? Not one that helped them.

    I think the real problem is that nobody believes or cares that the working class has virtually stagnated wages for the last forty years while inflation has gone up around 500% for the same time period. Trump takes advantage of the working class problem by promising them what should have been the Democratic platform. Then totally denying the working class abuse the establishment Democrats blame the working class for Trumps victory. If Wall Street is reregulated to produce a new industrial economy there will be prosperity and everybody will benefit.

    Whether intentional or just intuitive, Trump did nearly exactly what carpetbaggers did in the mid 1800s after the south lost the war. Carpetbaggers from the north came through and cleanup politically as well as increased their personal wealth. They took advantage of people who were struggling, taking the last few dollars from each family while making them feel good about going totally broke. Carpetbaggers specifically targeted people who are the poorest of the poor with the promise that they will be richer than rich.... All of which was nothing more than a con.

    trump has done exactly the same thing, his target has been primarily the struggling republican party.

    The key to a successful con is not to deliver and make people emotionally feel great success is on the verge happening. Results are always just around the corner, always "almost" here, just wait a little longer, and the jack pot will arrive. Just wait a few more days, and your dreams will be exceeded. The longer they wait, the bigger the final reward........ Something that never comes.
