Trump is on track to attain folk hero status

Trump's inauguration speech contained some things that I think were spot on and which should be sending a chill up the spine of worthless elitists.  I think Trump is rich enough that he is not going into politics to cash in like so many others before him.  I think Trump is actually trying to create a legacy of historical nature for the Trump name.  He's still an adolescent little boy but that does not make him either stupid or without clear goals.  The most important part of his speech was, "Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people. For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have bore the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. That all changes starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment.
It belongs to you.".

Whether Trump actually knows how to transfer power back to the people or not is still a question that I have.  I suspect he does not.  In truth, the only way to do this (and I mean the ONLY way) is to get rid of the use of fake money and that includes fractional reserve banking which is nothing but a scam for the rich.  Maybe I will prove wrong about this.  Maybe Trump will immediately go after the federal reserve and bring Yellen down.  Maybe he will in fact default on our debt (which would result in loss of confidence of the issuing authority of the fake money system).  These would be the honest things to do but they would be politically difficult.  Still, if Trump did them early on then within 3 years things would be ticking up quickly after the collapse and Trump would get elected a 2nd term and treated like the hero of the world.

One thing is clear though: Trump knows that he is in the right place at the right time when the herd is REALLY ready for radical change, not the bullshit same ole same ole that Barrack f--king Obama brought us.

Many lazily pretend to fully understand Trump and to be able to predict his future actions, within the range between utopian and dystopian.

To me, Trump is a Sphinx. While he has the right enemies, I often wonder why he considers them enemies. Truly, they are the enemies of everything that's true, good and beautiful, therefore my enemies too. But I haven't figured out the worldview that Trump espouses to identify his enemies. I suspect that it's not the same as mine.

However, Trump seems to be diagnosing the situation correctly and venturing a prognosis that motivates him to seemingly exercise the presidency with a sense of duty towards his fellow countrymen.

Perhaps his approach is the best, considering his admitted limitations. Otherwise, without the intellectual effort needed to venture in the world of ideas, one can easily become just an ideologue. And the Beltway is bursting with ideologies already.

Still, Trump seems to sense, perhaps using his businessman intuition, the ideas that will achieve the good he means to do (v. ). Of course, within hours of his inauguration, it's all good intentions. It's debatable whether Trump will be able to achieve his goals, especially when they are so contradictory. As a matter of fact, the odds and the oligarchy are against them. Still, for the first time in generation, a president is willing to tear down the status quo. Reagan tried, but failed. Kennedy tried, and was killed. Here's to hope that this time it indeed is different.
