We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Those most likely to be receptive of Trump are those who believe America is in the midst of a great crisis in terms of its economy, its chaotic civil society, its political corruption, and the inability to defend any kind of tradition—or way of life derived from that tradition—because of the transformation of its culture by the intellectual elites. This sweeping cultural transformation occurred almost completely outside the political process of mobilizing public opinion and political majorities. The American people themselves did not participate or consent to the wholesale undermining of their way of life, which government and the bureaucracy helped to facilitate by undermining those institutions of civil society that were dependent upon a public defense of the old morality.
Every society gets to choose its culture and have it the way it likes, right or wrong. But what happened with America (and to some extent, the rest of the Anglosphere) is we decided we were going to live by laws, especially the Constitution. That has overruled our cultural decisions repeatedly, but that's what we chose.
You can't have it both ways.

AVI, you may well be my favorite commenter on the site, but this time I beg to differ.
From my point of view the new culture is not one we have chosen. It has been imposed upon by the ruling class. And it has been done by ignoring the Constitution, not abiding by it.
