‘Politics for Dummies’



My friend is an IT geek. Back in the 90s when the internet was in its infancy he kept on about getting a firewall. I didn’t understand what a firewall was or why I needed one.

Where my IT friend failed President-Elect Trump succeeded. He transferred the method to politics with slogans and hats. Lock Her Up, Build The Wall, Make America Great Again. It gave the Dummies something they could understand. It was a good method applied in a corrupt way. All his promises fell fowl before his inauguration.
