"How Has the System Been Working Out For You And Your Family?" - Trump

Donald Trump appears to be taking the war to the establishment and he’s talking directly to the American people in a an op-ed published by The Wall Street Journal.

“Let me ask America a question,” Trumps begins. “How has the ‘system’ been working out for you and your family? No wonder voters demand change.”

Taking direct aim at Ted Cruz for bragging about his “voterless” victory in Colorado, Trump blasts the entrenched politicos, donors and the system as a whole:

In recent days, something all too predictable has happened: Politicians furiously defended the system. “These are the rules,” we were told over and over again.If the “rules” can be used to block Coloradans from voting on whether they want better trade deals, or stronger borders, or an end to special-interest vote-buying in Congress—well, that’s just the system and we should embrace it.

I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people. Members of the club—the consultants, the pollsters, the politicians, the pundits and the special interests—grow rich and powerful while the American people grow poorer and more isolated.

The only antidote to decades of ruinous rule by a small handful of elites is a bold infusion of popular will. On every major issue affecting this country, the people are right and the governing elite are wrong. The elites are wrong on taxes, on the size of government, on trade, on immigration, on foreign policy.

Why should we trust the people who have made every wrong decision to substitute their will for America’s will in this presidential election?

Here, I part ways with Sen. Ted Cruz.

Mr. Cruz has toured the country bragging about his voterless victory in Colorado. For a man who styles himself as a warrior against the establishment (you wouldn’t know it from his list of donors and endorsers), you’d think he would be demanding a vote for Coloradans. Instead, Mr. Cruz is celebrating their disenfranchisement.

The American people can have no faith in such a system. It must be reformed.

Just as I have said that I will reform our unfair trade, immigration and economic policies that have also been rigged against Americans, so too will I work closely with the chairman of the Republican National Committee and top GOP officials to reform our election policies. Together, we will restore the faith—and the franchise—of the American people.

We must leave no doubt that voters, not donors, choose the nominee.

How have we gotten to the point where politicians defend a rigged delegate-selection process with more passion than they have ever defended America’s borders?

Perhaps it is because politicians care more about securing their private club than about securing their country.

The political insiders have had their way for a long time. Let 2016 be remembered as the year the American people finally got theirs.

    Its either Trump or it will be the last election for the U.S.

    • Terry J Wall

      The relevance of the old “Power corrupts and complete power corrupts completely” has to be again, taken on board. Remember Obama and his speech in Germany. A man’s hair started to rise on the back of ones neck – this guy could make a difference – he could rip the rot out of the secrecy and its “Elites”. We now know how easily he was suckered and greed/power won the day with but with a moment of resistance.

      Now we hear the same from a very wealthy “elite”; Donald Trump. Do we believe him? Or is he just going to be another Obama and pile another few tons of wealth into his own very experienced wallet. Give him a chance? He does attracts admiration for his willingness to kick over the “PRICKS”! How deep is his knowledge of geo politics? How honest/transparent is he? Obviously not that bad as he sees Putin as an ally – smart.
      For me, if I was unfortunate enough to be able to vote in to vote in US elections; I currently prefer any person connected to humanity, to community, family et al. I love people with a passion, but the secrecy associated with corporations drives me to hell and back. Bernie, I suspect has those credentials. He is old enough to realise that when you stand at the side of your grave, the things that really spin your wheels, are the people you love. Money has damn all to do with it.

        I agree with most of it, but in my opinion Bernie is obama in white, same rethoric same promises, people say oh but Bernie doesnt take any money from the establishment, Really? Is that a 100%? I heard the U.S. Navy and some other corps did contribute to his campaign, so I wouldnt trust him one bit, and the rest of the candidates are just full blown unamerican psychopaths not even worth to mention, I have no delusions about Trump he is an old school boss hog, But, he is not a psychopath, he doesnt wants to destroy the U.S. and he doesnt like traitors, he is worth $30billion so I would assume that he isnt doing it for the money either, Trump could get along with any world leader, and would cut the funding to the jihadists, nazis and drug cartels, with any other candidate WWIII is ensured since Russia and China wont just sit around waiting to be destroyed, and this is the undeniable the master plan of the banksters and the neocons, full spectrum dominance or bust, and contrary of what the pentagon bureucrats think that is a war that cant be won, even more so since the U.S. has lost the moral high ground, and if history has thought us something is that one cant win without having the moral high ground.

    Quote: Only a fool would vote knowing his vote, no matter what, will only favor
    that which is opposed to him, that which enslaves him through
    word-magic and contracted dis-ease. Ah, the causality of illusionary
    choice. And every four years the charade is played out again. Billions
    spent. And only the bloodline ever wins. The game is fixed. The con is
    rigged. Suckers.
