Donald Trump very well may be the next President of the United States.
A perfect storm has gathered to make this happen.
It was inevitable.
I have a theory.
Ever since Bill Clinton came into the White House with the rise of the information age
the political spectrum has become much more extreme. With the rise of the internet websites and media companies like drudgereport.com, Breitbart and Fox news allowed the conservative message (extreme right wing) to grow and be heard without censorship by the mainstream media.
Because of this companies like MSNBC and the New York Times among others moved farther to the liberal side preaching to the extreme left. The democrats even disguised companies like media matters to preach their liberal views.
Our politics became polarized, you were either labeled a crazy right wing conservative or an ultra liberal. Families started to fight and the liberals demonized all thing conservative convinced that they were the mainstream.
Being a conservative I was called crazy by my liberal family in San Francisco. I in turned left town to a much more conservative place (Arizona).
But the more I supported the GOP, the more I learned that they did not care about MY views. The candidates I supported lied to me. They made promises yet caved when it came time for execution. To them I was just a source of income. This became clear when I met John McCain. I had written him letters yet never got a real response from him. I expressed my view on policies that were important to me like Immigration, Veterans issues, Taxes and Government Waste. Yet when I met him in person all he would mutter was “elections have consequences, elections have consequences”. I realized that my votes for him and the GOP had been wasted. I leaned more to the tea party whose message closer matched my views. (I am not going to vote for McCain any longer)
As time went on I became more of a Libertarian. I realized that I was not an ultra conservative, yet NOT a liberal. My views fell somewhere in between. I want smaller government, but I also want more personal freedom. I am pro life, but I agree that the law is settled and who am I to tell a woman what she can and cannot do. If someone wants to smoke weed go for it no harm, no foul. Just do note toke and drive.
I am pro military (My son is an active duty Marine). However I do not think we need to be the worlds policeman. BUT if genocide is going on we do have a responsibility to help stop it.
I also think we need to help the poor and create a welfare safety net, BUT it must be tied to job training for those who are able and not encourage lazy behavior.
But I realized I was not being represented. It appeared that I needed to choose far right or far left. I got angry and frustrated.
I felt that we needed someone in the middle, not a Liberal Democrat or a Conservative Republican.
Then here came the current election cycle and Donald Trump.
I realize that Donald Trump is not perfect. But he is the ANTI Politician option.
I love the fact that he does not cave into special interests as he does not take their money.
But he tells it like it is and is expressing the frustration of much of America.
He is not a total conservative, yet not a liberal but that is O.K.
The voters are tired of the status quo. Tired of being told what to do by a lying establishment who does not represent them.
I hope Trump is elected and disrupts or destroys the Republican party as we know it. Create a party more in tune with the people.
I think Trump will build a Mexico wall. I think he will stop the flow of illegal aliens from Mexico, South America AND the Middle East. I think he will support the military and also restructure the US Government to eliminate waste. I trust he will also bring in experts to fill positions in his administration. I also think he will restore the United States economy again to position it as the greatest place to do business.
High hopes I know.
But I am sure of a few things.
If the GOP ignores the voters to put in their own puppet (Romney of Rubio) they will see a revolt like no other and will be made irrelevant.
If we head into socialism or are continuously ignored or change does not happen there will be a revolution and breakdown of society.
So if AMERICA elects Trump as President, I hope he is a positive agent of change and helps getting America back on track, it may be a good thing.
