I'm sure for some it was those reasons but for factory workers and miners and the like fear was definitely it. Oh sure immigration probably played a part, takin ur jerbs, and government fuckery screwing their lives over did too but for them the fear of the future was a big thing.
When those people say "Make America Great Again" its not just a slogan, it resonates for them. For them America is no longer great. Not because of what color it is or what gender it is but because America of The Current Year is broke, out of work, starving, and homeless. America was Grrrrreat when anyone could get a job, buy a house, have a car, be able to afford to have kids, and to be able to have a future.
There was also fear of the Democrats and normal Republicans that put us in this mess where small towns have shrunk considerably, the main streets of America are rotting with buildings missing from being torn down like the teeth of a meth addict, when the pain is so bad meth and pills are horribly rampant, when once thriving communities have turned into ghettos but nobody cares. Fear comes from the fact they don't understand what "MAGA" means to people, they make snide remarks and stupid twitter posts about how America is already great, how its the best its been.
To a degree they are right, certainly the fact faggots can know the joys of marriage and trannies are for some reason lauded as heroes (I'm pretty fracking liberal when it comes to social issues and am totally fine with transgender people, would even date a transgender woman if I liked her, but don't think they are heroes for transitioning, at best they are fixing a medical condition) show for some people America IS great. But for all the millions of others who can't find work America is not so great.
When someone is so afraid of tomorrow they take any hope they can get and Trump was it. Like I said in the previous post, Trump actually gave lip service, acknowledged they existed, showed even a modicum of respect. What has the Dems done? Nothing but ridicule them, call them racists and the source of all the problems of society. Republicans did little better, gave the bare minimum of lip service while cutting benefits and some of the only help they have after helping ship away jobs.
I doubt Trump will actually help bring back manufacturing or mining jobs but that small hope is all some people have.
Now yes for other people they voted for Trump for other reasons. I personally voted for him because I'd like to afford some guns without selling some of my organs and there is no way in hell I'm going to vote for Hillary ever even if you get right down to it the choice was an illusion.
Others voted for him as a sort of fuck the system let the world burn.
Still others voted for him because they actually think he'd do a good job, honestly think he's going to be a good President like Ronnie Raygun 2.0 (wonder if we'll sell more weapons to weapon to Iran?).
I'm sure more then a couple of Trump voters were Bernie or Busters who wanted to help sabotage Hitlery's chances because the bitch stole the election so might as well steal it back.
