Back to American politics: This is a well-thought-out conspiracy theory...

And this is an equally well-thought-out response to that article...

My own feeling is Trump didn't really have a plan for what he'd do if he became President, but those supporting him and now making up his inner-circle probably did. As with Bush II, but on steroids.

"Don't waste your time trying to prove that this grand idea is better than that one. Ditch all the big words. The problem, remember, is not the message but the messenger. It's not that Trump supporters are too stupid to see right from wrong, it's that you're more valuable to them as an enemy than as a compatriot. Your challenge is to prove that you belong in the same tribe as them - that you are American in exactly the same way they are."

That's from here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2017/01/27/in-venezuela-we-couldnt-stop-chavez-dont-make-the-same-mistakes-we-did/?utm_term=.f95b098b29db

Which is "A version of this article"...

In a democracy, you don't win by defeating your enemy but by persuading them to join you.
