They proclaimed that he was not to be taken seriously. His detractors said that there was no chance that he could succeed. The GOP spent Superpac money to fund negative ads to support his opponents Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Many Republican leaders vowed "Never Trump!" and refused to support Donald Trump if he somehow miraculously captured the GOP nomination. With 16 able and well established GOP competitors The Donald decimated them one by one and proved that a strong willed and patriotic businessman could defeat the Washington DC establishment.

The circular firing squad

The very core of hatred and resentment that has been directed at Donald Trump, who made his fortune outside of Washington DC and did not become wealthy as a result of entrenching himself in office, is because he does not even need their money! He made his own. He is beholden to no one! While the GOP establishment slowly aligns itself in a begrudging manner, still there is talk of the Republican idiocy faction creating a 3rd party as some of the old generals, beaten over and over again by the Democrats, still refuse to support the presumptive nominee. Why?

Deluded leadership

For almost eight years now America has been under assault by the most leftist White House ever to darken our nation. Under Barack Obama our country has faltered in every category and division has torn our society apart with racial allegations, and bad economic policy while ignoring national security. In all this, the GOP under the traitorous leadership of Speaker of the House, John Boehner consistently raised the white flag of surrender whenever faced with representing the people and the rule of law over President's Obama's flawed rule.

The lies

When John Boehner resigned from his position as Speaker of The House, Paul Ryan became the "Great White Hope"he failed to evoke public approval when supporting all of the very issues of contention that his colleagues in Congress had promised the people they would oppose, Planned Parenthood funding, Executive Amnesty, Common Core, the IRS scandal, and more. Yet, the GOP boldly exhibited just what infuriated their electorate and Ryan pushed the Omnibus Bill through that would fund all of the despicable legislation Americans have opposed. A 1.1 trillion funding bill got passed in pure defiance of the will of the voters demonstrating just how little "We The People" are being listened to!

The corruption

Donald Trump is the liberator. A representative form of government originally intended by the founding fathers would applaud a nominee with the allegiance and capabilities of Donald Trump, but the GOP fought his nomination tenaciously. Had Mitt Romney fought Barack Obama with the passion that he opposed Donald Trump with, a fellow GOP member, who funded the Mormon's failed bid for the presidency in 2012, the Presidency might well have changed hands. Yet, this is the perversion of the "DC Establishment" who would rather see Hillary Clinton elected than Donald Trump, one of their own!

When the tail stops wagging the dog

However, the people finally spoke, and they warned the GOP that allowing a rigged system to rob Donald Trump of his ascension to the presidency  would evoke consequences and the Republican Party might just disintegrate beneath the wrath of a public that had been betrayed too many times by those they had elected. Donald Trump is viewed as a threat, not as he should be. According to one commentator Trump may indeed be the most qualified individual to ever enter the oval office because unlike his predecessors, The Donald has succeeded on his own merits, his own achievements, and is beholden to nobody!

When truth is ignored

Coal miners have rallied to Trump's support while "Crooked Hillary" vowed publicly that she would wipe out the coal mining industry just as Barack Obama had proclaimed before her. While the GOP rhetorically opined that protecting our borders with Mexico was bigoted while Americans are killed by illegal aliens, while the federal government subsidizes them, harbors them in illegal sanctuary cities as they run amuck in California with a million unlicensed drivers, Donald Trump visited the border and acknowledged that there is a dire problem that is being enabled by self defeating White House policies. Of course Trump came under attack for stating the obvious!

Will history repeat itself?

Beleaguered Americans have rallied around presumptive nominee, Donald Trump. Why? For once the people have been heard by a man who will act in their best interests, who will address a common sense answer to the PC insanity in Washington DC and Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, the left, and the Democratic Party hates him for it. They tremble in anticipation of Trump's liberation, the conquest of a corrupt snake pit that would doom America to the will of radicalism, Islam extremism, and impotent economic policies is in jeopardy now. This is what has elevated Donald Trump to the role of a reformist desperately needed in our troubled nation! Not since Ronald Reagan has America faced such despair with the potential for a miraculous recovery. It appears the momentum of Donald Trump is inescapable.

It's good to see you haven't lost your sense of humor while you were away.

... or your cavalier disregard for facts. ;-)  Good to see you're still consistent.

Ho ho ho back from the North pole again.

Trump made his money the old fashioned way: he inherited it. And that is un-American, if you let the founding fathers define what is American. They opposed the accumulation of inherited wealth as leading to development of aristocracy. But like the bible, conservatives are very selective about what they revere from the founders.

At least one finance person, who would know, claims he'd have done better, i.e. made more money, just putting his inheritance in bonds. As it was, he leveraged the hell out of every project until he could lay it all of on his creditors with bankruptcy. Just think what he could do with the country!

Did I miss an open call for political fiction? If so, it wouldn't matter, because I'd hesitate to answer such a call for fear that my work would be compared to yours and found thoroughly wanting. 

Has anyone ever explained to you what a Leftist is? I mean some of you guys now think Hitler was a leftist, so clearly some of you are finding the concept ambiguous. Here's what it doesn't mean: "Someone who loves big government." The ultimate leftist was Karl Marx and he didn't like government at all. 

Obama is ridiculously far from being a leftist. We know - most of us here would prefer a President to the left of Obama. I realize the guy had an African father and he has a really Muslim sounding last name, but neither of those mean he's a leftist. 

Some say he's a leftist because of Obamacare. Maybe you haven't figured out where Obamacare came from. It came about in its original form when a Republican governor needed a somewhat conservative health care plan for his state, one that involved insurance companies rather than just handled entirely by the government, and so he hired the Heritage Foundation, the most prominent conservative think tank in America, to write one for him. They wrote it, he tried it, it worked. Obama was working with a Republican Congress so, to be conciliatory, he decided to present a health care program that was written and tested in the field by Republicans. If he'd gone left, we'd have seen Single Payer. That Obamacare is leftist would be more credible if Hans Christian Anderson wrote that it was. 

Leftism (if there is such a word) is based on egalitarianism. Liberals believe in equality of opportunity and communists believe in equality of everything, particularly wealth. Leftists typically get involved on the part of the disenfranchised, the poor, those who face discrimination. Leftists were in favor of gay marriage a quarter of a century ago. Obama wasn't in favor of gay marriage in 2009. Leftists are concerned with Black Lives Matter. Obama hardly ever talks about race at all and, when he does, he tends to frame it in terms of class rather than in terms of actual race. Leftists would be raising taxes seriously on the wealthy, particularly given a concentration of wealth in the United States that has gone way past unreasonable and into obscene. (The distribution of wealth that Republicans say would be ideal in surveys is WAY more even than current American reality.) Obama raises them some, but certainly nowhere near as high as Republican predecessors like Eisenhower. You might want to compare the percentages at which the wealthy are taxed now and how they were taxed then. Leftists would support the crap out of the Occupy movement; Obama wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. Leftists would have vetoed that pipeline immediately; Obama took years to decide against it. Leftists are pro-labor, Obama couldn't be bothered to campaign against Wisconsin union-busting Governor Scott Walker in a close race. 

President Obama hasn't led from the Left on anything. FDR did. Kennedy did some, Johnson did, big time. Carter at least led on human rights. 

By the way, Planned Parenthood is not primarily in the abortion business. That's pretty peripheral to what they do. Planned Parenthood is mainly in the birth control business. 

By the way, there is one Republican Presidential candidate who has had the courage to stand up for Planned Parenthood.

Awww, look at kosh. I knew he'd even explain to a brick wall. Bless his heart. ;-)

nerd cred your comprehension of the founding fathers and the US Constitution I would attribute to the Gorilla that was dragging the kid around in the Cincinnati Zoo and you'd probably have sided with the idiots who would have sacrificed the life of a child to spare the Silver Back's precious life. So give me the address where I can send you the bananas!

Kosher get a diet- Everyone knows that Trump has changed positions and evolved in some of his views. He is better than Bernie and Hillary put together proving that 2 retards can never amount to one capitalist no matter how much they want to give away to buy votes!

Comment by Doc Vega on May 31, 2016 at 5:19pm

Yes, Trump paid millions into the coffers of both the GOP and Democrats and none of them complained about it, did they?

Comment by Doc Vega on May 31, 2016 at 5:22pm

Nerd Cred the founders of the Constitution were not into class warfare, they did not support big government, they did not want a central bank, they were against massive regulatory power of a centralized federal government and advocated state's rights. Your foggy notions are probably emblematic of your learning disorder.
