Education is a major issue in politics. Primarily this election was a White Lash getting back at a black president who was too uppity to suit the white right. If people were educated correctly, they would look deeper into what the problems really are.
Technology, not TPP or NAFTA are the culprits that eliminated industry jobs in this country and that’s not going to change ever. If educated, they would understand that there is an international shift from jobs tech can now do, to running the tech that does them.
If educated they would understand that the country is changing from an all white to diverse country, and that’s the way it is. And people aren’t horrible if their nationality is different. We are all immigrants, the only difference was the Polish, Irish etc were all white. Now the new immigrants aren't.
If educated, people would understand that being strong is sometimes being smart. What would you do if a terrorist leader was hiding among children and families? Would you bomb them anyway? And if they were your children, would you still bomb them?
Would you throw out immigrants here illegally just because they are breaking the law? Or would you recognize we have let them come in for close to 100 years and to throw them out would destroy our food industry as well as their families?
Would you give a speeding ticket to someone who broke that law 20 years ago? Most crimes have a statute of limitations. If they aren't caught within 7 years, they can't be charged. If we do this for criminals why can't we do it for those who help keep our food prices low and keep our food industry functioning?
These are all deep questions that many can’t answer because they aren't taught to think deeply.
Would you bomb Syria when they crossed the red line simply because it was a line, or would you realize that the vacancy would allow ISIS to take over the country and it would have Russia and Iran retaliating?
Would you ban all late term abortions if you knew a woman, having twins, with one already dead and the other with the brain outside his head and the mother possibly dying was dependent on it? Deep thinking.
And that same deep thinking would help realize that all people are different and all are the same. Not based on race or origin. And that if there are 11,000,000,immigrants here and 7 committed violent crimes that doesn’t make all immigrants bad. In fact they are probably better than the white peoples norm.
This is all about deep thinking when we are taught to depend on the teacher for the answer, they then depend on their favorite candidate for the answer.
Do we call Hillary a liar when Politifact says Trump lies over 70% of the time and Hillary and Bernie 25%. Tom Brady did not support or vote for Trump but he says it anyway because the vote was almost over when Tom's wife got on the news and discredited it. And there never were people dancing in the streets in New Jersey when the twin towers came down.
Trump; 4% true; 11% mostly true; 15% half true; 19% mostly false; 34% false; 17% pants on fire
Hillary; 25% true; 26% mostly true; 24% half true; 14% mostly false; 10% false; 2% pants on fire
Summary Trump 30% on true side; 70% on false side
Hillary 75.5% on true side;25.5 on false side
And Hillary is a criminal when she has never in her life been convicted of anything? Of course we say "every one knows that she did wrong". Which is a cheap way of saying she's guilty without her being guilty. However Trump University comes up next so we will see who is really guilty. Can you say "lock him up?"
And if someone read every e mail you sent over a 4 year period and still found nothing illegal, would you still say something was illegal? And Trump wouldn't even release his taxes? Why?
Just sayin’ If the people knew what would really help them, they might make wiser decisions rather than believing the line of crap politicians put out.
