Love him or hate him, Donald Trump is not just another politician. He doesn’t play the game. I could go on and on about how the big problem in democracy right now is campaign finance, and that corporations have essentially bought both parties. But Donald Trump is the first guy who can honestly say they haven’t bought him. If he had a mind to, he could finance his entire campaign out of pocket and he honestly might.
All true. And he’s still as horrible as anybody or worse. “Not another politician” who is not beholden to anybody else is not a hope for everything good and wonderful. It’s a total nightmare. If the doctors in this country suck (and they mostly do), taking an ill relative to a witch or a soothsayer whose only qualification is that he’s never seen the inside of a medical school is – shockingly – not a solution.
