As with many conservatives, I was excited by Trump’s honesty and ability to say what he thinks without political decoration. I sided with his statements about Mexico not sending their best and brightest. His concern for the national debt and how to overcome deficit spending on dependency producing entitlements, wasteful spending and fraud seems genuine. Even his statements about stupid people negotiating trade bills and nuclear deals might have an air of truthfulness, though I personally believe that the kowtowing, cowering and give-aways are more by prior design than stupidity.

He shows no fear when he accurately states that Obamacare deductibles are so high that it renders the program useless in many situations. He is impressive when he looks an interviewer in the eye, tells him or her that they are reading a misquote or when he stands firmly behind a previous statement which they may not like.

However, when he started with personal attacks by belittling individuals who question his statements or request specifics, (e.g. how to get Mexico to pay for a wall) he began sounding too much like a tyrant. By January 20, 2017, we’ll have had eight years, more than enough of a president who blames, demeans, deprecates, chides or castigates anyone who disagrees with his autocratic mandates.

We need a leader once again, not a despot. We need someone who is truthful and accurate in speech, not someone who caters to the politically correct zealots.

“The Donald” tossed the possibility of my vote in the trash within the first 15 minutes of the first Republican debate. For him there was no debate. It was name calling and minimizing the moderators and his rivals. I hope his current supporters dump him when he tries a third party run. I’ll continue looking for a candidate I can get behind.

One Response to “TRUMP”

  1. Joe Kiraly Says:

    Try Carly or Rubio, Bob.


    For those who have fought for it, Freedom has a flavor the defended will never know.” A veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life wrote a blank check made payable to, ‘The United States of America’ for an amount of, ‘Up to and including my life.’ That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.’
