Trump, meeting market demand....

A year and a day ago I wrote my last post, about US corporations replacing American workers in America with importer foreign workers. Even middle-class workers. I wrote

And both major parties support these policies. As do the main "alternative" parties, the Libertarians and the Greens. A substantial majority of the US voting population is opposed to these kinds of policies. The fact that there is NO actual alternative to the pro-immigration open borders position demonstrates that the US political market-place is, in fact, not a free and open market.
A year and a day later, America now has an alternative. Not that the media presents Trump as such. The vast majority of "Why Trump Won" stories about his conquest of the Republican Presidential nomination typically excluded any mention of immigration.

So instead we're about to get several months of the media doing everything they can to either ignore the topic that propelled Trump to his unlikely nomination or frame it in terms such as "Why doesn't Trump understand that the best thing for Americans is to turn America into a Third World country?" I don't expect it to work any better in the general election than it worked in the primaries. Hillary is already running a campaign that suggests that she hates American whites (except for gays, trannies, and lesbians who have had fifteen or more abortions) and would much rather preside over a country of Third World peasants. That didn't work out so well for El Jefe Jeb, who explicitly ran a campaign to be President of Greater Mexico, and I don't expect it to work for Hillary, either.
