This past week there was a great deal of talk about Donald Trump and his possible run for the presidency in 2012. His raw and straight forward talk is capturing the attention of many as he has blasted holes in Obama’s policies. He is oozing with self confidences and the people are feeling it. The one thing Mr. Trump is an opportunist who knows what sells and understands the “Art of the deal.” It’s one of his greatest strengths. I was asked if I thought he had a chance to win the Republican nomination and possibly even the presidency and my answer is absolutely. I don’t say this because I’m a fan of the successful real estate mogul; I say it because Americans are getting tired of politicians and they desire something different. They’re tired of Ivy League hacks that are out of touch with the issues that matter to the average American. They’re tired of politicians talking out of both sides of their mouth. They’re tired of empty promises. They tired of debt and out of control spending. They’re tired of kicking the entitlement can down the road. They’re looking for an honest discussion that offers real solutions and they’re not finding in Washington these days. Americans are looking for a winner and Donald Trump is the poster child of winning. What you see is what you get and this is a refreshing change for most Americans. He is who he is with no apologies.
We have all seen this current administration apologize to the world for America being America. We’ve had to stomach watching our President bow down to world leaders who have very little love for America. We have become frustrated with a government that ignores the will of the people and presses forward with an oppressive agenda that threatens our liberties. We have had enough of the political games and rhetoric. We’re tired of losing. Americans are ready for a win and this is why I feel Donald Trump has a solid chance in this race. Not because he is the most qualified or even the smartest; but because he is indeed a winner.
I know many may disagree with this assessment, but the one thing you can’t disagree with is that Donald Trump is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the political arena and it’s not because he has a history of losing. It’s because we’re ready for a winner and Donald Trump is a winner like it or not.
Liberty forever, freedom for all!
