Trump may not be as bad, nor as good, as some believe
As best I can figure, Trump voters break down into two main categories. On the one hand, there are fundamentalist Christians who believe that Donald Trump is an instrument of God.
On the other hand, we have a larger group who believe that Trump is an avatar of the mysterious masked protagonist of “V for Vendetta.” They believe that Trump will “blow up” Washington, D.C. If I thought that were really true, I might vote for Trump myself.
But his tax plan, which amounts to a crude version of trickle-down economics, clearly indicates that Trump is no “Edmund Dantes.”
