    Van is spot on, but the voices of America spoke out at the polls. These were voices that as an electorate had not been valued for over 50 years and then it was by George Wallace, Governor of Alabama. The heritage of America, a socio-economic system for white people, particularly the culture descended from Anglo-Saxon people was heard, understood and spoken to. Donald Trump understood this better than anyone in the American establishment.

    Everyone wants to be listened to and valued. Donald Trump did not start the division in America that is most recently evidenced by protests of his win, he only exploited it for personal gain. I see the events leading to the election as a twist of the fable Stone Soup. In olden times, a weary traveler was hungry and sat on the side of the road. When approached by a local, he said he had three stones and only needed a pot of water to cook them in. He got that. Other curious locals stopped by and asked questions as to what the traveler was doing, and he would tell them he was making stone soup. But he needed fuel to heat the water. He got that. Others came and he said he needed vegetables for the stone soup, and he received them as well. Eventually he got a meal starting with nothing but his wits and charisma. Of course, the meal was shared with the community.

    Donald Trump has done the same thing. He spent relatively very little money on his campaign, faced adversity from the establishment at every turn, but told the ‘forgotten electorate’ everything they wanted to hear. Jobs will return from overseas. Law and order will prevail. Undocumented immigrants will be deported. But he even went further than Reagan, who made people feel comfortable with their prejudices, With his wits and charisma, Donald Trump won the presidency on a platform that allows people to celebrate their prejudices. And as an added bonus, an indemnity if you will, if the things he promised do not fulfill to the extent the ‘forgotten electorate’ would like them to, regardless of how uneducated, indebted or poor the ‘forgotten electorate’ may be, at least they are white, and will always be better than the highest non-white person.
