Political assessment

It seems Fred likes Trump, or at least what Trump's brought to the surface.

Fred opines here in is unique Fred-like way. 

Meanwhile, over at the Wall Street Journal, it appears Peggy Noonan's awakening continues. If you're not a subscriber, WSJ's firewall may prevent your viewing of Noonan's April 29th column, but here's a taste:
...Trump comes and in his statements radiate the idea that he’s not at all interested in ideology, only in making America great again — through border security and tough trade policy, etc. He’s saying he’s on America’s side, period. 
And because people are so happy to hear this after 16 years, because it seems right to them, they give him a pass on his lack of experience in elective office and the daily realities of national politics. 
They forgive it all. Not only because they’re tired of bad policy but because they’re tired of ideology.
Labels like liberal or conservative have become so twisted, even lost, in various ideologies. And for years, we've been subjected to big party ideologies that pretend to take us one direction but, in reality, take us in another.

And yeah, the people are finally awakening to the game that's been played.
