Democrats do not inspire me to vote at all – they have screwed progressive left and right for at least the last 20 years.
Bernie Sanders who is supposed to be the beacon of a socialist progressive movement built nothing in his 30 years other than a soapbox which he stood on taking the opportunity to utter some choice, but empty words on the floor of the House and Senate all the while collecting a pretty hefty government paycheck for that privilege – $175k a year, plus benefits and a spectacular pension. 30 years as a progressive socialist democrat and what coalition did he build? Nothing. But, he has stood by the funding of every war and proxy-war under Clinton, Bush and Obama and he stands with Israel on everything even as they slaughtered over 600 innocent children in Gaza last summer. Actually, Bernie’s actions appear to be more pro-Israel than pro-American.
It’s next to impossible for a progressive to even think of voting for the GOP, however, Ron Paul was outside the GOP box, he was anti-war and anti-bank bailout, he gained plenty of points with progressives on the moral high ground. However, when he ran for president in 2012 the MSM and the GOP kept fudging the numbers even though he actually won the early primaries. Further, during the party nomination the GOP changed the rules at the last minute preventing Ron Paul from making a statement, so of course the GOP can’t be trusted.
Which brings us to Donald Trump -The Donald- already the GOP is trying to give him a hard time because he’s not beholden to their corporate master and corporate contributors like the rest and the party, and with his rhetoric he’s spilling the beans on all the corruption within the system; both parties, something he admits to being very well versed in and has taken full and whole advantage of.
This in turn makes Trump the anti-candidate’s candidate, which broadens his appeal to a citizenry of those fed-up with the two parties and those refusing to even show up to the polls in 2016. Trump is gathering little r republicans as well as little d democrats and everyone around and in-between.
Along with playing-the-system for decades he’s a tough to like on a number of personal levels. The question is then, do you need to love or like the guy who gets the job done? Do you like everyone at work or everyone in your neighborhood? Trump is not beholden to a party or big business and though there are more than a few topics we wouldn’t see eye-to-eye on I see no other candidate who has the rare opportunity to disrupt this corrupt crony capitalist two party war mongering bank bail outing dictatorship.
In some ways the hopeful and hard working American People are taking a gamble, who side is Donald Trump on? Does he really believe what he says about making America great again, or is his run for the Presidency of the United States of America pure ego, legacy leaving, or worse, an elaborate vulture capitalist plot to sell the country off piece by piece in a leveraged buy-out?
Trump uses the word “killer” when it comes to making or cutting a deal, he says that because these people, these corporations, these lobbyist and all these politicians behind the scenes are all killers and that being a practicing killer in finance himself he knows what makes these people tick and how to deal with them.
I know I’m tired of being killed, and I’m thinking maybe it’s time to hire a killer to kill the killers.
So I ask this question, could Donald Trump be America’s Harry Tuttle?
Can you trust him?
What else you got?
Is The Donald starting to lose that new car smell, already?
