Are conservatives like a trailer Park Home schooler

There are people that homeschool their children that are motivated to expose their children to learning that they can tailor to their kids.  Then there is the trailer park mom who homes schools their kids because they don't want to have to get up in the morning.  They believe that they can throw a few textbooks at them and then let them surf Youtube (aka Ron Johnson). That homes schooler thinks that they are smarter than everyone else when in fact the opposite is true.

Donald trump is like that.  He has blundered his way until he has come to believe his ignorance is actually an asset.

Now you may say, but he is so rich.  Well he started out rich and money makes money when you are willing to screw everyone over.  If Trump is elected, like a bad homeschooler, it will be the children that suffer, along with everyone within the court.

Trump is Hitler, are we post-war Germany.

My first thought is that America is not. We are not in dire straits and feeling defeated. Then I wondered if maybe the threshold from a Hitler might have happened even if things were not so bad. Maybe the threshold for evil is lower.
What if the mindset of a nation could be set in motion and then snowball until it is out of control. Plus as a nation, we might be dumber than post-war Germany. In fact, I am pretty sure that is true.
There is an inequality in America. It is simply harder to identify because technology allows there to be a big discrepancy without the hardships that it caused in the past. People can be poor and have hardships. Yet few do not have resources for food and shelter. Most have a refrigerator, fast food, and a cell phone. So the urgent need for change is not there- fix this or change. Yet the anger is there. We look for someone to blame.  Liberalism look to blame the rich and corporations. Yet we love our corporations. Pepsi and Nike. We believe someday we will be rich.
Conservatives blame the immigrants and minorities and the no religious. For many people, this hits on something they believe anyway.  And even if deep down, they disagree, if you hear something long enough, you will begin to believe it.

I believe that trump will not get elected.  If a rich moderate like the last guy could not get elected, then how will an angry Trump. His rhetoric will change, but (and he may not believe this) his previous comments have been filmed and will be brought up.
