"Some people think that the truth can be hidden with a little cover-up and decoration.But as time goes by, what is true is revealed, and what is fake fades away". Ismail Haniyeh
The point is not Sarah Palin’s support to Donald Trump but why did she took this long time to do so?
The truth is that I don’t know the answer. I am not even close to be a political analyst in Mexico, my own country, nor or less in the US. Far from where all this is happening, a country and a border away, that border which is being over secured, not only because of migration, besides this social phenomena, there are Drugs Cartels and maybe the most important for U.S. people, terrorism. That border which separated families with that new iron wall and military support that increases or decreases accordingly to a political timing.
Do you really think that through the US’s southern boundary the Islamic fundamentalist world are deploying terrorists?
I don’t know, I don’t think so. It is no convenient for the business, I meant the drug business, the trafficking in persons and/or weapons industry. At the end of the day, all activities are some way sponsored, supported or ignored by very influential people at both sides of the border, so a Berlin’s wall like line wouldn’t be on the interest of those people. Why do they will allow to stop their business? How many tunnels are working right now moving people, drugs, weapons?
Some years ago, a guy related to the transport industry which main business were settled at Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, told me: “Those businesses are kings’s businesses. Every day we saw and hear how planes fly from one side to another, and nobody do anything to stop it”, Have something changed from then to nowadays?
Did migrants built US?
Certainly, they did. But, who cares anyway, Mrs. Palin and Mr. Trump’s speeches are directed to a group which need to hear things like those they are saying. A large (I hope not large enough to choose Mr. Trump as President of the US and Mrs. Palin as, let’s say whatever secretariat she want) group of US people which hates migrants (contemporary migrants) and some of them tried to hide those feelings behind this speech of freedom and equality (As I always say: freedom and equality if you are US citizen, otherwise you do not qualify as human, or at least, not a same level one).
I think that Mr. Trump goal is to tie anti-migrant beast off, that beast which almost disappeared from the souls and beliefs of every US citizen, but now that political timing is suitable he bets, as he always do, to achieve that goal, and I think that Mrs. Palin do believe that, so she is moving their cards in order to be next, or close at least, to the Commander in Chief, paraphrasing her.
But I really do believe that Mr. Trump will fail, not because he won’t try with sufficient energy, resources, words, challenges, silly stuff, finally. No,he will fail because of there are a lot of US Citizens who are fully confident that their security can’t be granted by a man like Mr. Trump, citizens with a lot more culture, knowledge, empathy, fellowship, etc. Namely, there are more good people than bad people.
