Trump is Americas Dominant Male Archetype

With the primaries looming just a month away the battle for the GOP nomination is heating up fast. The support Trump has gained is not over-all very surprising, after all, he is one of the most recognizable names on the planet. He has successfully branded himself to be perceived as synonymous with not only success but BIG success. His name has literally come to mean “to out-do” the competition. His initial launch and momentum therefore came as no surprise to anyone. What has become quite astonishing is how he can repeatedly make statements that should be alienating him from voter group after voter group, his extreme case of foot-in-mouth disease should have marginalized him to a point of no return by now yet his campaign continues to soar.

His outlandish and offensive statements should have done irreparable damage. His antics should have taken away any shred of qualification one would need in order to be Commander in Chief here in America. Somehow they have not, and that is the strangest and possibly scariest thing about his campaign.

iuMany of his supporters vehemently declare that Trump will “make America great again”. They site his long history as a business man and his strong leadership skills. All to often I hear the argument that as a successful business man he will correct our financial woes as a Nation while simultaneously utilizing those leadership abilities to steer us in the right direction.

I have one major issue with this proposed scenario, Trump has no interpersonal skills. He speaks at people, not with people. He is good at giving orders but terrible when it comes to listening to the opinions of others. I can see how this type of dominant and assertive character could thrive in the corporate world but as President, not-so-much.

For one, it would be a foreign relations nightmare.

His recent call to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S. made waves across the globe as our world community shrank back in abject horror of such a notion. In Britain a Petition to ban Trump received over 570,000 signatures, enough for an obligatory Parliamentary session to discuss the issue.

Let that sink in for a minute, our closest Ally on the world stage debated whether or not to ban a presidential candidate from entering their country.

UK FlagYou are all familiar with the questionable statements he has made and will continue to make. It seems that even the Donald himself is well aware that his hateful and offensive statements should be driving voters away; but for some reason are not.

His latest statement, “I could shoot someone, and not lose any voters.”

He may just be right. The anomaly that is the Trump is an outgrowth of our media-cultivated reality that enmeshes with the real-world. His character is larger than life, his antics well known and long accepted (even if it used to be for entertainment purposes only). He is a familiar character and one that is recognized as a symbol of wealth and greatness.

Has the legend of Donald Trump been seared indelibly on the minds of Americans? Has he become the archetypal dominant male role model? How else could he spout corrosive sentiments left and right yet remain ja viable candidate for Leader of the Free World?

America is not a Business. We are not all of like mind. As a population we vary in every conceivable way. We are the melting pot of the world. We do not need someone with a singular and unyielding methodology. We need someone with an open mind and heart, someone who can be a diplomat first. We play on a world stage that is quite complex and will require nuanced discussion and debate. To believe that the limited and specific set of skills needed to be successful in business somehow qualifies an individual to be President is short-sighted and ill-informed.

As an American citizen I am disgusted by Trumps biased and hateful attacks.

As usual, thanks for stopping by!

Trippers Document Their Experience Of Taking LSD At A Donald Trump Rally

Trippers Document Their Experience Of Taking LSD At A Donald Trump Rally

January 22, 2016 by John VibesLast week, Redditor /u/flipper8088 posted a detailed trip journal on the “psychonaut” section of Reddit, describing his experience at a Donald Trump rally while under the influence of LSD. Many have compared this journey with the style of “Gonzo Journalism” that Hunter S Thompson was recognized for throughout his career. Today, it is actually surprisingly common for journalists and thrill seekers of other varieties to attend important events while under the influence of psychedelic drugs so they can”take it all in.”
In the case of the Trump rally trippers, they were not pleased with what they experienced.
Their entry titled “Went to a Donald Trump speech on acid SUPER BAD VIBES,” can be read in full below:
“It was a stupid idea to begin with honestly. First my friends wanted to go to the Trump rally just for fun even when they don’t support his ideas. Then in the car on the way there one of my friends tells me he just got a hold of some acid and that it would be hilarious to be tripping at a Donald Trump speech, just to say we did it n that it’ll be funny story to look back on. So we all just say f*** it and drop 2 hits each. Bad idea. We walk into the place and just know that something is very wrong. The tension in the air was flowing through our bodies, everyone looked angry about something. 10 minutes pass and we all realize we must escape from this hell on earth before we lose every ounce of sanity we have left. We head for the exits, it’s packed with people and security. WE WONT MAKE IT! We all agree and head back to our seats. (We could’ve made it we were just tripping too hard to be rational) Trump comes out and the whole building starts shaking with chants of USA! USA! USA! It was proud patriotism with an undertone of depraved violence, you could feel it. We all look at each other with the most dreadful look in our eyes knowing we just f***ed ourselves into oblivion. I might post the rest of the story later when I have time


“Edit: Rest of story: I put both my arms around my friends and tell them I love them deeply and that we will make it through this experience together, like always. This seemed to reassure my friends a little and it also gave me a sense of comfort that I had 2 trustful companions by my side, even if their minds were being fucked beyond measure at the moment. If anything, genuine trust and unconditional love was the only savior we had left.
“The peak started intensify about 5 minutes (or was it 5 seconds) into his speech. We were sitting on the left side (ground level) about 150 feet away from Mr trump. Got a terrific view of his exquisite hairpiece in person that seemed to have a mind of its own as it was breathing and taking on different forms throughout the whole speech. The visuals were up to par with around 200 ug in my experience, some rare strong street acid, just my luck in this situation. My mind begins to wander as I stop forwarding my conscious attention to his rhetoric and start observing people in the crowd. Started to think about how weird the human race is.

“The woman in front of me had brought 5 of her kids to this rowdy cesspool. All her kids kept glancing and staring at us. One peeked around the corner of his stroller stared straight into my f***ing soul for I don’t know how long and then proceeds to point out how big my pupils are. “Mommy, look how big his eyes are. The Mother hears it glances at me with the most heinous expression on her face, she definitely knew.
“I Start paying attention to Trump again and his face starts to subtly melt. The melting intensifies until his face looks like a wax statue thrown into a furnace. I point this out to my friends and they start seeing it. Try holding back laughter on 2 hits of strong acid, it doesn’t work and we burst out laughing while Mr Trump is speaking, he pauses his speech but doesn’t pay us any mind as we cover our mouth quickly. Everyone around us knew we were on something though.
“Protesters in the crowd kept yelling things and were getting dragged out by security. Lol one guy yells ‘TRUMP DID 9/11! open your eyes to the truth’ This is when I realized the opposition is just as idiotic as the supporters. As a country we are digging our own graves. I start to look at myself and fell into a deep state of personal introspection. What was the motive for me taking this action anyway? Why was I here at a trump rally on 2 hits of LSD? Was I searching for some hidden truth by way of chemicals? Or was I here for good fun? I was just as irrational as the others I looked down upon.
“You know how sometimes YOU have ‘moments of eternity’ on LSD. Yeah well that was happening all night, the speech felt like it kept looping over and over and over and over and over. Muslims this, guns this, illegals that, something about Hilary Clinton being disgusting by using the restroom. Then every 5 minutes after a bold statement, the crowd erupts into mindless cheers and applause. Endless time loop. This when I actually convinced myself that I was living out the novel 1984. I genuinely believed this. Trump was big brother HOLY SHIT AN EPIPHANY. TRUMP IS BIG BROTHER. Yeah this when the trip started to take a bad turn again but wait a miracle. THE LOOP IS OVER. WE’RE SAVED. THE DEVIL IS DONE WITH HIS RHETORIC. The speech was over. we can get out of this zoo now. We figure we’re all too f***ed up to drive so we call someone to pick us up. After that we had a deep discussion about politics, America, Philosophy, Trumps hairpiece and how incredibly idiotic we are.”
