A recent NBC poll indicates that Donald Trump is tied for 2nd place among Republican voters likely to vote in the next presidential election. He’s in 1st place among Tea Party voters. I think he’ll be in 1st place among all Republican voters within a month.
Trump’s spiritual foundation is unknown to me. It’s possible that he’s a pure secularist. If so, I’d be wary.
But he’s the first significant public figure to express his doubt that Obama was born in this country. I’m delighted.
Trump appears to be a nationalist–and perhaps a populist–he’ll do what’s best for the USA–and to hell with the rest of the world. I’m delighted.
Here’s an interview from NBC Today in which Trump complains that American is no longer respected in the world but, if he’s elected, we will be respected. He is clearly warning the rest of the world that if he’s elected, they had, by God, better watch their step.
He’s no bulls–t artist. He’s not inclined to lie. He’s angry. He’s passionate. He’s aggressively honest to the point of arrogance. It would be exhilarating to have someone in a position of power who is so arrogantly honest, that you could depend on him to tell the truth. Even if that truth offended me, I’d be delighted to have a politician who I could at least rely on to tell the truth.
Trump is probably the single most exciting candidate for the A.D. 2012 presidential election. He has sufficient money, brains and balls to sweep the presidential election.
And, y’know what I really like about Trump? He doesn’t waste his time smiling, smiling, smiling. I get so freakin’ sick of watching almost every freakin’ politician constantly smiling. What th’ hell are all those a-holes constantly smiling about? Are they on drugs? Don’t they understand the seriousness of our national condition?
Trump looks you in the eye and doesn’t try to bulls–t you with a never-ending smile. Trump doesn’t try to be endlessly affable. All by itself, that’s reason to vote for him.
The interview below is even inspiring–not merely because Donald Trump makes a great “speech”–but because someone, anyone, in a position of public power (even if not in government) has the balls to simply and unapologetically tell the truth without spin or political correctness. He’s talking to us as if we were adults. He’s respecting us enough to tell the truth. I find that respect exhilarating.
He reminds me a little of Teddy Roosevelt . . . or maybe J.R. Ewing.
But Trump is telling me that someone in a position of power actually gives a damn about this country. All by itself, that’s evidence that the political tide is moving in our direction. We just might win this struggle against treasonous government.
There’s more to be learned. Without some spiritual foundation, Trump may be nothing more than a powerful fascist. But as things stand, I’d vote the man in this 10 minute video.
