Is Populism The Road To Oblivion?
First of all, I’ll say it if no one else will. I think our politics is too focused on ‘the little guy’. Is populism the road to oblivion for us? Learn more in America’s-Road-To-Oblivion-Bob Davis Podcast 888.
What is Populism? Where did it come from? I’ll tell you in this podcast.
Give The People What They Want, Right?
Certainly populism as a tactic does not have a cohesive ideology. I will point out it’s not about addressing specific issues. It’s about giving the people what they want.
Business As Usual Especially When They Say They It Won’t Be
Moreover I think politicians playing to the cheap seats risk making very bad decisions. Finally, it’s not just politicians.
Voting Against Yourself
Democrats AND Republicans
Furthermore populism doesn’t call one of the two parties ‘home’. Populism is present in both party’s ‘business as usual’ politicians.
Consequently when democrats promise free basic incomes, free education and free health insurance. Or when republicans promise trade policies to protect coal miners, steel workers and farmers. It’s all the same. Populism.
A More Powerful Government
Meanwhile it sure seems like this trend leads to a more dangerously powerful and expensive government. Learn more in America’s-Road-To-Oblivion-Bob Davis Podcast 888.
Banana Republic Or Rome?
Due to masses lining up with their hands out, blaming capitalism or the deep state for all their problems we’re on the road to oblivion. We might end up banana republic, joining the other dead societies in history. Hence, Oblivion.
Don’t Hold Your Breath
Therefore I offer a small quiet voice of protest. Will it get fixed? Not anytime soon I am afraid.
This just has to run its course.
(Editor’s Note: I refer to William Jennings Bryan as Wilson’s ‘former’ Secretary of State when discussing the election of 1896. Obviously Jennings became Secretary of State much later.)
