I Like Donald Trump for President Because he is not for Sale and the Rest Are!

TrumpPicRepublicans are fond of their loyalty oaths because they know as soon as someone with an “R” after their name is elected, they immediately become indistinguishable from Democrats and Socialists. If, after elected, Republicans actually did what they promised to do during the election, there would be no need for loyalty oaths in the first place.

But Republican Party leaders are well aware that Republicans are Chameleons. They are Conservative right up to the day they are sworn in and then they turn as liberal as any Democrat. They have become adept at deception. Show votes designed to fail like the bill to defund Planned Parenthood that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell allowed to come to the floor for a vote are a perfect example. Instead of placing this bill on a “must pass” bill as an amendment, where failure to pass or a veto would shut down the government, McConnell decided to have a show vote designed to fail. The bill required 60 votes and few Democrats would dare vote to defund Planned Parenthood because it is political suicide. So instead of pushing the issue in a way it stands a good chance of passage, we had a show vote.

Now if you are fortunate enough to have a Republican Senator, they will claim that they voted to defund. What they won’t tell you is that the outcome was never in doubt.

Now imagine if we had a President that would hold a press conference and expose Mitch McConnell and John Boehner for their use of theatrics designed to fool the average voter and give Republicans plausible deniability with the voters at home, all the while giving the Democrats what they want. Taxpayer funded abortions and for profit human chop shops.

If McConnell wanted Planned Parenthood defunded it would already be done. The same goes for Boehner in the House. And the issue does not matter. Illegal immigrants, amnesty, the Iran “treaty” or any other hot topic of the day.

But instead, most of these issues are dispatched quickly in a why that Republicans can pat themselves on the back to the voters back home, cave in to the Democrats and still see money from the Chamber of Commerce and Big Business pour in to fund their next campaign. It is a win-win-lose. The voters and taxpayers are the only losers.

Have you heard any of the Democrats asked about taking a loyalty oath? Of course not. Democrats don’t change sides when they get elected. They promise to reign financial ruin on the country in the form of more welfare and to attack oil companies with reckless abandon if elected. And they always follow through. As despicable as most Democrats are, they usually follow through on their campaign promises. No matter what. And they can be counted on by the Chamber of Commerce and Big Business to provide a steady stream of illegal aliens to provide cheap slave labor in the name of “love” and tolerance.

If Republicans actually delivered what they promised they wouldn’t fear a third party run.

So why do Democrats and Republicans fear Trump?

Because Republicans and Democrats both sell their souls to the big money interests that comes from the Chamber of Commerce and Big Business. Without that cash flow they cannot win elections. That is why there are really no political parties in Washington. Republicans and Democrats face off as opponents whenever there are mics and cameras present, but behind the closed doors, they both work for the money providers. Now Republicans tend to get more money from Big Oil than Democrats, but the Union money evens that out.

Donald Trump, 0n the other hand, can thumb his nose at the Big Money crowd. And that makes him dangerous to the status quo in Washington. Imagine, a politician who is not in the back pocket of Big Money. Who is not owned lock, stock and barrel by special interests. A man who can actually afford to do what is right. Do what is best for the Nation without regard to the special interests. Someone who can just do it. And even worse, someone not intimidated or controlled by threats to cut off donations!

And imagine a man that has the money and power and platform to go after these corrupting influences. And a man who is unafraid of the fallout.

In the debate, Senator Rand Paul tried to go after Trump for “buying and selling” politicians.

“I’ve given you lot’s of money Senator,” was the reply Paul didn’t want to hear.

And I have seen all of the Trump detractors, most of whom have their horse already chosen. The RINO’s are the loudest and most absurd of the lot. And they are also the most frustrated when the old tried and true techniques for taking out Republicans fail.

We have seen all of the attacks. Trump gave money to Democrats. To Hillary for crying out loud. Yes. He did. And he has admitted that his money bought her attendance at his wedding. I would imagine it bought him more than that, but the beauty of this statement was how much it hurt Hillary among Democrats. Not only has she fraternized with “the enemy” Trump, she was actually bought and sold. And in her attempt to move to the left, Trump just jerked her to the right in the eyes of her fellow Democrats. Especially the Socalist supporters of Bernie Sanders. Hillary’s association drove a wedge between her and Sander’s followers that makes it far more difficult for her to reconnect with those voters.

And how did Trump respond when the left wing Gawker released his phone number, hoping to create problems for the Don? His counter-attack was one for the record books. As ABC News reported:

Donald Trump has turned the tables on Gawker. After the online site released one of Donald Trump’s cellphone numbers, the GOP presidential candidate changed his voicemail this morning.

“Hi, this is Donald Trump and I’m running for the presidency of the United States of America,” he says on the recording. “With your help and support, together we can make America truly great again! Visit me at twitter @realDonaldTrump and check out my campaign website at Hope to see you on the campaign trail, we’re going to do it!”

You might think that Carly Fiorina is the main Republican attack dog going after Hillary Clinton. Fiorina herself claims to have an advantage in attacking Hillary because they are both females, and we know how much the press and the Democrats love to advance the “Republican War on Women” myth. But the truth is, all of her attacks fall on deaf ears in Democrat circles. She’s just a Republican telling lies as far as they are concerned. Fiorina’s attacks are for Republican ears. She cannot damage Hillary with her words. Essentially, no Republican can.

Until Donald Trump came along.

The picture of the Trumps and the Clintons at the Trump wedding was devastating to Hillary. Trump bought her. At least that is how it is perceived in Democrat circles.

And there are still any number of attacks from Republicans, Democrats and the Media on Trump. And the common denominator of these three groups is that they are all doing the bidding of Big Money. Even Fox News went on the attack against Trump. Although I am not really surprised. Fox gets it’s money from Big Business who buy ads to finance the network. And the unfair questions Trump received at the debate were the result of Big Money pressure on the News Network.

And I can’t recall another time where a single statement like the one Trump made about Megyn Kelly, “You can see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever,” was so distorted and perverted. How someone can turn that into a crude menstruation remark shows not only the depravity of his detractors as Trump said, but the desperation, frustration and hatred towards the man Big Business can neither buy nor control.

And the list of times Trump switched parties, donated to or complimented Democrats, supported one liberal cause or another fails to work on Trump’s supporters because they understand that he is (was) a businessman. Trump has expressed regret, not in what he has had to do to win deals, but at the fact that if you want to be successful, as he is, you have to play the game. He has said that that is unfortunate and he would like to change it.

And the Republican hypocrites that level these attacks should be reminded that when McConnell and Boehner and whoever it is that they are supporting resort to theater votes, punishment for casting a vote the people demand and the corrupt way our government runs things on a daily basis, they are doing exactly the same thing they feign to find so distasteful in Donald Trump. They are using leverage and money to close the deal. The difference is, the deals Trump makes tend to make him a rich man. And the deals Congress and the twin parties R and D make tend to make us, the taxpayers, individually and as a Nation – broke. $19 trillion in debt is the result of Big Business controlling the White House, the Senate and the House. And practically every elected official in the government.

People who find Trump a refreshing alternative to the corrupt system we have are the only ones with their eyes open. Those attacking Trump for every imagined weakness or fault are either in the pockets of Big Business themselves or blind followers of those that are bought and paid for by Big Business. Those of us who see Donald Trump as the only candidate not controlled by Big Business, political correctness or the demands of the party heads who are not so transparently trying to rig the nomination process in favor of a Big Business RINO (like McCain or Romney) understand just how much trouble America is truly in. That nominating a Big Business owned candidate ensures the eventual collapse of America. It ensures that our children and grandchildren will have nothing. That America will become a third world country and necessarily move into the history books as just another fallen empire.

And we can’t let that happen.

The Trump detractors try to paint him as unreliable, crude, even crazy. They claim we cannot be sure how he will act in office. Will he make crude remarks to other world leaders? (And why do we care?) The current occupant of the White House has already insulted all of our allies and proven weak to our enemies who no longer believe America is a threat to terrorism.

Will Trump be truthful and Make America Great Again? Or is it all a lie.

Can we take a chance that Trump is telling the truth about his intentions, if elected President?

Well, I can’t say for sure. But what I do know is that the rest of the field is owned by Big Business and the only way they will win the Presidency is to allow themselves to be bought by Big Business. And we also know one thing for sure. They will all lie to us to get elected. Their masters will see to that. History supports the fact that they are all liars, beholden not to the voters and the people who elected them, but rather to Big Business who bought them.

The only candidate in the race who is not for sale, the only one who can’t be bought, is Donald Trump. We know the rest are liars. Time will tell with Trump. But I believe he truly wants to make America great again. I believe he will stand up to members of either party who want to sell out America with smoke and mirrors and theatrical votes. I love his crude comments and the words he uses to not only garner attention, but to counter-attack his opponents. That is what has been missing from the discussion for a very long time. I am sick and tired of politically correct Republican whiners who cave in to the media and think advice from the Washington Post, NY Times or the liberal cable media (even Fox now) is intended to be helpful to Republicans. Chuck Todd tried his best to get Trump to apologize. To neutered liberals like Todd, Trump should apologize to anyone who took his comments the wrong way. And of course most Republicans would bow to this pressure and apologize. Probably 16 of the 17 candidates. But Trump knows that the the media would turn an apology for someone taking something the wrong way into an admission of guilt, confirming that he intended to talk about Kelly’s menstruation cycle. That is how it works with the liberal media.

And it was truly refreshing to hear Trump stand his ground. Something I haven’t seen a Republican do in a long time.

For anyone struggling to truly understand Trump, read his book “The Art of the Deal”. And you will understand why he refuses to rule out a third party run. (Hint: Leverage.) You will understand why he refuses to allow himself to be maneuvered into a position of weakness. Why you should expect a counter-attack immediately and with greater voracity than your attack on him.

Trump brings the tactics of a Big Business tycoon into the political realm currently controlled by Big Business. That has never happened before. We are in uncharted territory with The Donald vs the Uniparty.

That is why the tried and true tactics that normally easily dispatch other Republicans will not work with Trump. So how do you go about getting a Republican out of a race? First you pretend something he said or did was so outrageous that he is not deserving of support and then Big business withholds all financial support. It works every time. Find a reason, make up one if you have to, but the important part is to cut off funding.

And then there is what Donald is saying. He needs to keep up the talk about stopping the flood of illegal aliens. He needs to call out Republicans for their hypocrisy. He needs to keep on kicking butt and taking names. He has tapped into a theme that resonates with Americans. He has the ability to cross race and party lines and despite Fox News’ attempt at slaying his candidacy with the “War on Women” wooden stake, they failed. Of course they had a woman, Megyn Kelly, launch the attack and the post debate show that her efforts were as effective on Trump supporters as “the other woman” Fiorina’s attacks are on Hillary supporters. Completely ineffective.

At this point, I am very high on a Trump presidency. And his lead in the polls reflects my own feelings about him. The forces that fear Trump actually fear that he might be the man to return the country to sanity. To poke fun at and completely ignore political correctness. To tell the truth about the influx of illegals and their massive cost to Americans, both in terms of crime and money. And someone who has the ability to boldly tell the lying political class to go to Hell.

Trump is the only candidate that has a chance of turning America around and he is the only one that can return the voice of the people to its proper place – in charge.

Trump is someone who cannot be bought. And that scares the life out of the media and political elite.

    How is Ben Carson for Sale? He just wrote a best selling book and is a retired pediatric neurosurgeon?

    • Tom White says:

      Unless Carson or anyone else has a spare billion or more laying around, they have no choice but to sell themselves. And the donors expect favors in return. That is how our system now works. Pretty much anyone who has to beg for money also accepts the attached strings.

    • Dave Radegtsky says:

      Jeb Bush has already lined up $1.5 billion in pledges for the election. The Democrats have lined up between $2 and $2.5 billion. To compete with that you need a LOT of money and only Trump has it. Anyone else would have to turn to big money donors to get it as the grassroots won’t give anywhere near what’s needed to win. The Wall Street donors would let a candidate know that the money comes with conditions that they expect to be fulfilled. The other side is that Wall Street only wants Democrats or establishment Republicans and not conservatives so the chances of a conservative getting that money are small, UNLESS they forsake values and sell out to the big money Wall Street donors.

    ” politicians are all talk, no action” Trumps most effective and powerful line because it resonates with ALL VOTERS, Trump could do very well , like Reagan did pulling blue collar democrats, social democrats who are offended by the progressive’s sickening policies on so many fronts. His steady business approach to fiscal issue, his clear unambiguous message on immigration, his willingness to forge ahead on tough stands with trade issues, the back of the hand ( rightful I might add ) he gives the Chamber of Commerce and K street…

    Reagan had to endure the medias attempt to paint him as a cowboy, B rated actor with no intelligence….they did all they could but Reagan stayed on message.

    If Trump does the same, remains focused and REFUSES TO BRING ONBOARD THE PROFESSIONAL MANAGERS , that would screw everything up,forcing Trump to be someone else—he would doom his chances.

    The media will attempt to dig deep and expose Trumps changing his position on a variety of issues, but that is to be expected. Honestly , each of us have changed our positions over a life span on a variety of issues ourselves, so only the hypocrite’s will jump on that band wagon. Voters who are intellectually honest on that issue won’t abandon Trump because of something he said 20-30 years ago.

    All the right notes Tom, excellent observations and writing. Yet another example of why I begin each day on VaRight !

    Tom, the fact that he’s not for sale is actually really bad. If he doesn’t care or need money or endorsements, what stops him from doing whatever he wants when in office. He’s supported universal health-care, was pro-choice until fairly recently, admittedly wants to keep funding planned parenthood, etc. Presumably these are things you oppose. Without anyone to hold him accountable, why would he be a good President? Even if TEA Party groups threaten to primary him or organize against or not give him their contributions, etc – all he does is open the bank account and spend another billion in ads to drown them out to do whatever he wants – which we’ve established is not necessarily Conservative.

    Trump is slimy. And he’s accountable to no one. He says whatever people happen to want to hear the day he says it. His flip flops make Romney look like the most constant thing in the Universe and he could MUCH more easily flip off the base than McCain or Romney.

    • Tom White says:

      Thanks for restating the talking points put together by Trump’s opponents Anonymous. We have all seen and heard them over and over, always espoused by someone supporting another candidate trying to make Trump look bad. Have you ever asked yourself why the other candidates feel the need to make Trump look bad rather than trying to beat him with a stronger and more popular platform?

      What stops him from doing what he wants in office? Absolutely nothing. That is what I find most attractive to his presidency.

      But you need to ask yourself: what has stopped Boehner and McConnell from stopping the flood of illegals across the border? From defunding Obamacare? From building the Pipeline? From stopping Obama’s push to get Iran the bomb?

      In fact, nothing they promised in their last campaign has even come up for a vote. Conservatives in the House tried. And in the Senate too. But they were shut down and punished by their own party leaders while these leaders pushed through Obama’s agenda. And this has gone on for years.

      Trump played the business game to win. He does not like to come in second. And he will do whatever he has to to achieve his goals in business.

      Now is Trump being dishonest and telling me what I want to hear to get elected? Will he actually follow through on his campaign promises?

      Honestly, I have no idea. I hope he will. I know that if he sets a goal in a business deal he will do whatever he has to in order to win. I know in business, he follows through on every promise. And he will be whatever he needs to be to get the deal done. Read “Art of the Deal” and you will see how he thinks. And it puts everything in perspective.

      So I don’t really put much stock in actions Trump has taken in the past as a businessman. If he were a politician, the talking points might have some significance. But not as a businessman. I recall Reagan was a Democrat and flopped on a number of issues. Heck, a lot of Conservatives used to be Democrats, back when Democrats used to be Conservative.

      So while I am not sure whether Trump would actually “Make America Great Again” or at least work towards that goal, I know that his history shows he will do whatever it takes to achieve his goals. And making America great again is the goal he has set. His personal history shows me that he is willing to deal, scream and call out anyone that gets in the way of his goal.

      And what I like most is the fact that he will not be relying on money and favors in return to stay in office and be reelected.

      And we already know that the other 16 candidates need big money to win and win a second term. So they require money from people who then own them – as far as leverage. Trump understands leverage and should he win, he will have the leverage and the rest will not.

      But will he abandon his stated goal and do something entirely different? His record says no. But the other 16? The odds and the record say they will promise us the moon and deliver nothing. Or more precisely, they will deliver whatever those who have leveraged them desire.

    • Dave Radetsky says:

      You are grossly misinformed about Trump. He has been misquoted and taken out of context. For example his Planned Parenthood comment was clarified and he has said he would not give them any money as long as they’re in the abortion business. It’s actually been a number of years since he became pro-life (George H. W. Bush became pro-life just before he was elected VP, although I admit he wasn’t a conservative.). People change and sometimes a recent convert is more enthusiastic about an issue than someone who has claimed to be something a long time. Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are lifelong Republicans and where has that gotten us? Go read Trump’s book “Time to Get Tough” that he wrote 4 years ago and learn a little more about him.

  4. Robert Shannon

    Anonymous—-you are missing the point. Fiscal matters are driving the discussion, Immigration matters are driving the discussion, Foreign Policy clarity is driving the discussion.

    You are caught up in the side show issues that on the grander scale are not priorities. The funding of Planned Parenthood won’t matter much when the fiscal tent collapses. I find funding it deplorable but it won’t drive my vote , nor will the hundreds of other much smaller issues that the Media wants voters to get caught up in. The infamous phony “war on women” is another example, and Trump is smart to not get caught up in it. Trump knows apparently better than his competitors not to play the medias game, apologizing everyday for the newest ” created phony outrage” Trump has said so , ignoring the PC crowd that typical pols fall all over themselves trying to please.

    As for his doing anything he wants …….the Imperial Presidency has been with us for some 40 years now, worsening with each President. I really struggle to see how it worsens with Trump, particularly given Congresses unwillingness to do a damn thing about it.

    Maybe you use anonymous for a reason, maybe VaRight might consider any responses when someone won’t use their identity for whatever reason.

    Regardless of whether or not you like Trump, he has tapped into a vein , Americans are sick and tired of platitudes and slogans, equally sick of people who have spent their entire lives in elective office without a single achievement they can point do outside of politics. Trump , like him or not gets things done.

    It is an impossible dream — I wish your essay could be printed in every major newspaper in America. Thanks for expressing your great thoughts.

  6. Paul Thiel says:

    Tom,these are my sentiments exactly and you have phrased them so very well. RHINO republicans really still have no clue as to why Trump is doing so well. Voters are fed up with their business as usual “we must compromise to get anything done” attitudes and realize that means we lose to liberals all the time ! Young voters who have watched their health insurance coverage sky rocket with insane deductibles and huge monthly fees are upset and supporting Trump in large numbers as well. We, as a country, need a change and not just a new pair of shoelaces on an old pair of shoes ! (Jeb Bush, John Kacheich, Linsey Grahamnesty, and even Scott Walker). Go Trump- make America great again !
