I get it – we’re all tired of the direction the country is heading. The Constitution is being destroyed, political correctness is getting us killed and our rights and freedoms are slowly being taken away. Our elected representatives are letting us down and “The Establishment” Republicans talk the talk but don’t vote the right way when it really counts.
So for those of you who are looking for someone outside the norm to take us into a new era of greatness and undo the big government stranglehold on America – I can see where Donald Trump might look like your guy. But after listening to him rant and rave for the past six months or so and especially at last night’s debate, I’m here to PLEAD with you: do not vote for this man in your caucus or primary election.
Donald Trump is nothing more than a badly spray tanned, hairpiece wearing, women hating bully who may or may not have raped his own wife. He acts like a child on the debate stage – throwing temper tantrums and screaming at the other candidates when someone challenges his stances on the important issues. If he acts this way during the debates, can you imagine how a phone call from a foreign dignitary would go? Probably not well if they didn’t share his perspective on the issue.
Then there’s the problem with his plan for the country – “winning” and “winning big” to make American great again doesn’t cut it. Even his web site doesn’t reveal many answers. When outlining on his web site how he’d reform taxes, Trump says, “If you are single and earn less than $25,000, or married and jointly earn less than $50,000, you will not owe any income tax. That removes nearly 75 million households – over 50% – from the income tax rolls. They get a new one page form to send the IRS saying, “I win.”
At this point in the game, Trump should have more than a phrase to stand on so voters know what he hopes to accomplish as President. But he doesn’t – it’s all vague answers, all the time.
How can we take this man seriously? Yet here he is, still topping the polls in many states.
The November election is an important one and even more so than it was yesterday. With the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the next President will have the power to nominate someone who will either uphold the Constitution as our forefathers wrote it or nominate justices who will undo this great document that is the very fabric of our country’s foundation.
Donald Trump is not a true conservative and were he elected President, it’s scary to think about the kinds of people he might choose as leaders on our highest court. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at his past stances on issues like partial birth abortion, single payer healthcare, the national debt, and the Second Amendment. And if that wasn’t enough to convince you, just look at his donation record up until the 2008 election – mostly to Democrat candidates.
Sure, people can change, but it seems highly unlikely that someone who’s spent years spouting left-wing ideology would suddenly wake up one day and declare themselves a Republican.
Because the Republican party has not taken Trump seriously, they’ve allowed a man who goes around spouting hatred and blowing hot air to rise to the forefront of the race for the nomination. The party is in real trouble and the election is at stake because they haven’t done a good job at reining in a joke of a candidate.
And now we’ve come to decision time. Whether you’re a right leaning libertarian, independent, moderate Republican or extreme conservative, it’s time to pick a formidable opponent against the socialism of Senator Bernie Sanders or the untrustworthiness establishment Democrat that is Hillary Clinton.
If we remain splintered until convention time, we just might end up with Trump as the nominee and no path to the White House. Unite together. Pick a guy, stand behind him and vote for true conservatism. Our country’s future depends on it.
