Actually, I’m getting a little tired of people assuming that I’ll wake up at some point and realize what Donald Trump is—and will change my mind and vote for someone like Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio. I listen to Glenn Beck nearly every day, and also Pat and Stu and have heard people like them bash Trump for the last six months—assuming that fans of Trump are somehow asleep and will one day wake up to find they voted for a monster. I have watched Bill O’Reilly try his best to pin point Trump supporters with a simple explanation such as “they are angry voters who just want to bust up the establishment. “ I have put up with these types of people like I would the banter of children who don’t know any better. But let’s make something very clear—extremely clear. I know what Donald Trump is and what he might do. I understand his motivations—clearly—emphatically. And I’m certainly not stupid, naive, or in any way enamored with disillusion. I know the good and bad of Trump—I have done a lot of research into him since I started supporting him and I want him as president now more than ever knowing what I do. I want him specifically for the reasons shown below on the Jimmy Kimmel Show where a new children’s book was revealed about Trump called Winners Aren’t Losers.
Here’s the deal, we’ve had 16 years of really bad, and stupid presidents—people who clearly weren’t intellectually up for the job. Republicans had the embarrassments of George W. Bush and communists had the academic politics of Barack Obama. Before that we had 8 years of scandalous Bill Clinton and before that 4 years of a New World Order do gooder George Bush #41. They were all terrible presidents and they have embarrassed America to the world. Congressmen have lied, cheated, and enriched themselves incredibly over the last two decades to the point where people have lost faith in both parties. Our government does not function—at all. The people running it are terrible and have been well before Trump vocalized it. I want a private sector candidate, someone who will sell capitalism to the entire world and can fight for it. Socialism is the #1 problem in the world right now—it touches in some way or another every major problem we are facing presently in the world—everything from ISIS to college tuition prices. The fix for most problems globally start with a moral justification for capitalism and advocates who won’t waiver from it.
The Constitution is not being followed now. It should be, but a Constitutional purist like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul will not stand a chance against the K-Streeters—and that is the grim fact. America needs someone who loves to fight those factions without fearing anything. There isn’t a single politician ever to hit the scene who has no fear like Trump. He’s not afraid of the mob, of killers from Mexico, of government surveillance, of terrorists threatening his family, of boycotts, protestors—of the media. He’s not afraid of anything—he could care less about the Bilderberg parties, or the “illuminati.” He doesn’t fear any money men—he doesn’t have to worry about some billionaire cutting his nuts off and denying his family an income. He is above all that, and he loves to fight and argue and make deals. He’s my kind of guy. He doesn’t drink, he doesn’t smoke. He’s a loner with great charisma who loves his family. His kids are great. And so were his parents. Donald Trump is a great example of the American dream.
I don’t care about his bankruptcies. I know why he did it, and he learned very important lessons from those experiences. I also don’t care that he’s had three wives. I know why he did what he did. He pushed and pushed and pushed and the bankruptcies, the wives and the incredible controversies surrounding him through much of the 90s would have been enough to crush most people. But Trump worked through it without jumping off a roof, without ever losing himself, and without ever surrendering. He fought, and fought, and fought until all his enemies were pushed aside. And on the back side of it he was even better because of it. Now he’s a legitimate billionaire, not just one in debt buried in assets that could evaporate with a housing bubble. He’s legitimately wealthy, and as self-made as a person can be in the mixed economy that we all inherited from years of socialism trying to poke itself into our lives from beyond our shores. If Trump screwed people over, if he made mistakes in judgment such as he did with the tenants in Central Park South, he learned from them and is much better for it. What he has learned is exactly what to say and when to say it. In deal making you have to perform verbal faints to test your opponent to see what they have and when they’ll use it. When you are fighting people who believe that the end justifies the means, you better have a response to whatever they throw at you. You can’t fight them like some Red Coats from the Revolution—all lined up and orderly so that snipers can pick off everything headed their way. You have to be unpredictable, you have to verbally joust, and you have to out maneuver them with sheer tenacity at times. Ultimately you have to be willing to face every problem alone, and Trump flourishes at that.
An even more qualifying condition is that you must have somebody as president who knows how to surround himself with the right people, and that those people have to love to take junk and rebuild it. Trump loves to fix old things and turn them to gold, and his friend Carl Icahn comes with the deal. He’s worth $21 billion dollars largely because he’s a corporate raider-he turns around failed companies and makes them into winners. The biggest loser on planet earth right now is the mismanagement going on in the Beltway which has people like Icahn liking his lips. Even though Trump and Icahn are billionaires, they don’t really care about the money. They only care about the score that the money represents. Icahn doesn’t spend money on stupid stuff—he just likes to fight and to win. He looks for fights so that he can win.
I’ve said it many times; the first priority is that we have to get management under control in America. We have to solve our fiscal issues first. Then we can make the Constitution a priority. Without a solid winning national philosophy, the masses of a democracy will not support a freedom oriented Constitution—second-hander types will always look to rewrite the founding documents to allow them to legally loot others. So the first priority is to put money in the pockets of a majority of the country so that they will support the American Constitution. Otherwise, we are fighting a losing battle. People will not follow a philosophy of freedom unless they are financially secure and can enjoy that freedom.
What Trump does best is make other people feel good about the things he does. It doesn’t matter what he says, but why he says it. America needs to hear how good it is, and that winning is our value system again. And it needs someone to say it that won’t back down from a media that wants everyone to get a conciliation prize just for showing up. America needs to focus on winning at everything.
I would think that Glenn Beck and his followers would understand the strategic necessity of putting these types of people in the White House. Every generation has their specific challenges. George Washington had his challenges, Lincoln had his, Reagan did as well, but there is no correct way of doing anything. You take what you learn and apply it to all future problems. The more a person has lived and the more they’ve seen—especially under pressure, they better they are to solve problems in the future. And I know of nobody anywhere who has stood against the fires of life the way that Trump has. America needs a deal maker and a cheerleader. It doesn’t need another ideological failure who comes into public office with a lot of big ideas but falls short of accomplishing anything because they don’t know how to sell it to the public, and can’t work the media to their will.
There is zero chance that Trump loses to Hillary Clinton. There is nothing in Trump’s history that indicates that he would do anything less than destroy her completely in a head to head election. Only Trump could out talk and out maneuver Bill Clinton on the campaign trail. You wouldn’t put Ted Cruz or somebody else up against ol’ Bubba, history shows that they’ll lose. If they can’t do better against Trump in the primaries, they won’t do any better against Clinton. So my decision to support Trump for president is not locked in illusion. I’m not “asleep,” and need to be woke up. It’s just that I see more clearly what others will eventually see. And each week there are more people coming to the same conclusion, and it’s about time. In this particular game, Trump is the best bet and we are lucky to have him. It would be my strategic hope that he would pave the way for 20 years of a capitalist oriented society that would get back to our roots of Constitutional law—someone who will pick Supreme Court Justices like Clarence Thomas and stand for traditional America instead of the progressive crap that we have now. Beck thinks of Trump as a progressive—and he’s wrong. Trump has progressive beliefs because he’s a New York guy, but he ultimately is a deal maker who knows smart money from bad—and to see that—there has to be conservative roots to understand the value. Of that, there is nobody better than Trump in this election or any election in history. I’m voting for Donald Trump because I want America to win, and I do trust him to do that much. Because winning is important—it’s much more important than most people acknowledge. And Trump has a hunger for winning that I understand. That is why I am voting for the New York billionaire. I don’t care how someone plays the game—I care that they win. Those idiots who say that winning is not the most important thing in the world don’t know what they are talking about. It is because of those types of people that we have all the problems we do now. So it’s time that we stop listening to them.
I expect to win at everything I do. Winners are not losers. The idiots running our government now do not represent me. They lose too much and it’s time to change that. Most of the idiots who believe that Trump is not suited to be president also believe that empathy is one of the most endearing human traits–like the born again Christian Glenn Beck–or the Beltway political addict Karl Rove–who hopes that everything he has ever studied and loved will remain intact through this election cycle. That is the reason we get the same rejects over and over again in the presidential cycles. Empathy is fine for church on Sundays or Holidays when loved ones gather for Christmas dinner, but winning is more of a priority–because without it, empathy is worthless. Without winning, we all become like animals fighting over the same piece of meat. With winning as a priority, even when people lose they win because competition drives a culture forward and allows the best of what they are to provide leadership by default. In such a culture that leaves us all much less to have empathy about–and is a higher quality trait. So it’s really stupid to value empathy over winning or to vote for anybody but Donald Trump for President of the United States. If anybody really wants to win as a nation, you must have the best people on the job. And the way to figure out who the best people are is to see who wins or wants to win the most. Then you have your President.
Watch the videos above for more evidence and testimonials. I even included a hit piece against Donald Trump. I’m OK with everything he has done because his overall goal was to win, not to get style points for being empathetic. Empathy will make a superpower into a muddled mess, like it is now. Winning makes you more like Donald Trump. Sure you have a lot of enemies, but life on a daily basis is so much better–and far more interesting for everyone–even those who lose.
