Sean Hackbarth: "Donald Trump's Victory is a Victory for Populism" pllqt.it/ABrJ70
Donald Trump's Victory is a Victory for Populism | PJ MediaDonald Trump is Theodore Roosevelt's true successor. He's charismatic, has a sense for style, knows how to play the media, and he believes in the power of government to do good. To him, the problem of the last eight years wasn't that President Obama made the government bigger than ever before, but that his policies and the folks he put in charge were "stupid." That's populism in a nutshell: the idea that government can do much good by being active and involved in the economy, but that politics has to be taken back by 'the people.' His wasn't a battle against Big Government, but against The Elites. And he has won that battle decisively.
