Can I Have 10 MORE Minutes with Mr. Trump Please?

I found this report in the Youngstown Vindicator interesting (hat tip to Breitbart where I found it) and it said that a thousand voters (who in Ohio only have to ask for a GOP ballot to be a Republican primary voter) had switched from Democrat to Republican so, some said openly, so they could vote for Donald Trump:

About 1,000 Democrats in Mahoning County so far have switched their party affiliation to Republican with election officials saying several did it to vote for Donald Trump, the GOP presidential front-runner.

“We are seeing something this election cycle I’ve never seen before to this degree,” said board Chairman Mark Munroe, who’s also the county Republican chairman. “Every day I take phone calls or get voice messages from people saying they’ve been Democrats all their life and they’ve had it. They want to vote for Donald Trump. I’m surprised at the volume of inquiries we’re getting. It’s remarkable.”

A number of Democrats taking a Republican ballot when voting early at the board “say they want to vote for Trump,” said Joyce Kale-Pesta, Mahoning County Board of Elections director.

I remember how rural voters in Ohio saved George W. Bush in 2004 from possible defeat – they turned out in spite of the increased numbers in the Cleveland area presumably for Kerry-Edwards.  Many were believers and some had not voted in election after election.

And it is not limited to Mahoning County according to the article:

Election officials in Trumbull and Columbiana counties say they aren’t keeping track of how many voters are changing party affiliations.

“But we’ve had some people say, ‘I want to switch to the Trump party,” said Stephanie Penrose, Trumbull County’s elections board director.

“There are a lot of Democrats switching over,” said Kim Meeks, Columbiana County’s elections board deputy director. “We see a trend, but we won’t know details until after the primary.”

I would suspect this is happening all about the Buckeye State where I graduated from college (Wright State) and started law school (Dayton) just like what happened in 2004.
Why is this?  Unethical voting for the least popular GOP candidate?  Perhaps some.  But not all.  People are fed up with lying pols in BOTH parties and what seems to be Tweedledee and Tweedledum in both major parties:  Both for bad trade deals that gut our sovereignty.  Both for increased deficits and debt.  Both for bigger more intrusive government.  Both for the US to enforce UN resolutions with a billy club made up of wonderful men and women, some who do not return or return grievously injured in mind or body.  But someone has offered hope to many of these voters.  They want to see America great again.
Now if I had that ten minutes with Mr. Trump (and I understand he needs a speechwriter – I could do it part time but I must say – I disagree with the Muslim thing) I say:
Millions are placing their hope in you, Mr. Trump.  Don’t let them down.  Stop the silly stuff, the insults (never call Senator Sasse a loser – he won an election – call him right away and privately deal with it), and the vulgarity.  It is too important.  We might not get another chance.  The globalists are circling the US and UK with coveteousness.  Keep to the message.  Make US great again.  Stand for our sovereignty.  Fight Agenda 21 and other globalist ideals.  Say let’s build better schools and roads and infrastructure and leave the billy club to others.  You were right when you said we spent five trillion dollars in the Middle East and won nothing.
Consider this your greatest building effort, Mr. Trump.  Bigger than a building or the casino or a golf course.  Your nation calls on you.  Don’t let us down.

  1. I like your follow up letter. Trump could turn out to be a good president in spite of his many detractors. He could also be an absmal failure. This country is in need of an overhaul and a new Republican Party. The establishment has sold this country out. They have become parasites and traitors to all of our working class citizens. The people that have made this country. If he does the many things you mention he could go down in history a great president. I pray that he will do that.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
