Donald Trump for President: YES or NO.
Here is my personal opinion and it does not come from anyone or anything else. First off he has changed the landscape of politics forever. This is in part a good thing. All the PC crap is destroying America. If I say it – people get mad. If you say it – people get man. If Trump says it – HELL YEA !!!!!!
But I want everyone to stop and think back to the 2008 & 2012 election of Obama and how the people on the left (liberals) were slobbering all over Obama and how many were actually crying and some had thrills up their leg (Christ Mathews) and a lot of people actually thought they would not have to pay their bills any more. The left was going googly-eyes over Obama. He was going to stop the rise of the oceans & heal the planet. He was going to make all our enemies love us and we would all get along. QUESTION: how do you think it has turned out so far?
Donald Trump. He is a very successful businessman. Has has done what ever it took to get the job done, build a massive empire of wealth for him, his family and many others. I do not want his money nor am I jealous of him. I wish I were that successful but my life overall is just fine the way it is. I am sure he has crushed his adversaries to get to where he has. I am also sure he has helped many people along the way. Yes – he has given to help many in need. But does this qualify him to become POTUS?
I am not so sure. The pendulum swings in life. It swings from war to peace and back to war. It swings from prosperity to depression back to prosperity. With Obama our Government swung far to the left, to the liberals, to the progressives, to the communist. Obama has surrounded himself with the likes of Bill Aires, Jerimiah Wright, Al Sharpton, George Soros and on and on. He has fundamentally changed America and done things that can never be undone.
So what will Trump do? I think he will do as much harm to America as Obama has done. Trade tariffs can be very bad. Sound good in theory. A person who is POTUS can do a lot of damage on both sides of the isle. Bush admin came up with the terrible TSA and the DHS. We will never get rid of these. Do you think that Trump will really get Mexico to pay for a wall? No way. Build up the military cost trillions of dollars. I am a military man and while it sounds GREAT – he concerns me. His catch phrase – Make America Great Again. Sounds good. So did Hope & Change to a lot of people. The difference between Obama & Trump are not that big. I think they are as different as the North & South Poles – but they are both poles.
I personally feel that if Cruz or even Rand Paul could win we will be much better off. Why Cruz? Cruz knows the constitution inside out. He has argued before the Supreme Court many times. Following the Constitution is the right path. Cruz from all I see is a God fearing Christian. While I can not know his heart, only God does, I can feel that he is a good man in his heart and hope I am right. So far since he was elected he has a perfect score with Freedom Works. That is a win win in my opinion. Rand Paul? Rand Paul the same way. I can vote for him as well. The problem with Rand Paul is he would never win against the Democratic candidate. I wish I felt he could. Rand Paul has a perfect score with Freedom Works as well. Both are A+ with the NRA. But we have to win.
In closing I have friends who are rooting for Trump. No problem. You must do what YOU feel right. While I have no hatred for Trump, I am however very concerned with him as POTUS. I have zero reservations with a Cruz president. Paul’s foreign policy concerns me in many ways, but I am no expert of the middle east so he may be spot on. Either way I can not vote for Trump in a primary. I would have to vote for Ted Cruz. But if and I say if Trump becomes the GOP nominee and is “the one” who runs against Clinton or Sanders, then Trump will get my vote. I also know that normally by the time the primary voting gets to Kentucky the decision will have already been made on who the nominee will be for the GOP.
I like Trump. I like many of the things he says, just like many of you do. But I DO NOT want to get wrapped up like those on the left did in 2008 and 2012 over Obama and vote based on emotions of “Hell Yea & Let’s get-em for our side. Sorry but I am trying to do my homework on this one. I do not think I am wrong. Keep you eye on Trump and listen to how vague he is on the details. Trump says many times “I will fix it – You don’t want to know how, but I just will, trust me.” Go back through history of some of the dictators of the past. Hitler & Castro fooled many into thinking they and they alone can fix the problems of their people. No I m not calling Trump Hitler or Castro. But listen to a rhetoric directed towards Ted Cruz, whom he really liked a few weeks ago. Once Ted Cruz got close to Trump, Trump attacked. What do you think a Trump POTUS will be like? I think he will be like a New York or Chicago gagster. If he does not like you – you will be mowed over quickly.
Each of us must do what we feel is right. If you vote for Trump I will respect you and your vote. If you vote for someone else, I will respect you and your vote. I do think that the next POTUS will be a key factor in the USA to either crash & burn or for the USA to rise up again and be a shining city on a hill. Time and history will tell how it all ends one day long after many of us are dead and gone. Please stop and think before you react and make the emotional vote.
But in closing I can almost 100% assure you of this……….
a: If mankind does not destroy ourselves in the next 100 years,
b: With the youth of America being the way they are right now,
c: America will not exist as a free nation or superpower in another 50 – 100 years
I am glad I will be gone long before then. But I fear what our children will encounter.
