Why not Trump?
The oversimplified answer is: because we have not reached rock bottom. But we are getting closer.
The highly diversified field of republican candidates for the 2016 presidential election (which ironically seems more emblematic of the Democratic Party) includes a very colorful and undeniably controversial character whose name is Donald Trump.
Here is a man that has openly criticized the President, attacked illegal immigration, underestimated the heroism of an authentic American patriot and former POW and chastised countries like Mexico, China and Russia for their misdeeds. Contrary to the norm of this politically correct era, he often goes on the offense or counter-offense and has excluded the word “apology” from his often clumsy and volatile vocabulary. Why is it then that this peculiar man is leading in many political polls designed to gauge the early chances for a nomination in the Republican Party for the presidency of the United States?
Could it be that this narcissistic and eccentric millionaire business man speaks of issues and concerns, which have been afflicting the minds and souls of a silent majority for quite some time and now that obscured and timid substantial segment of the American public has finally found a voice to utter its cry of despair?
Is it possible that an individual with a limited intellect, bold personality and a hefty wallet has finally dared to disturb the long process of social retardation, which has continued to bury traditional values, principles and manners and subdued most of the balancing forces barely battling out of control liberalism and its dooming tentacles of societal decadence?
Alarmed by Trump’s intrusive, vociferous, frequently inappropriate behavior (which so eloquently mimics that of many on the other side of the issues, who constantly seem to get away with it), many conservatives have denounced his antics as detrimental to the republican cause; in their desperate search for the approval of an already liberally indoctrinated populace. As Trump’s popularity and ratings have climbed, many on the right, particularly politicians and most specifically other 2016 presidential candidates are beginning to find very difficult not to address –at least in lighter dosages and most likely with certain reservation- some of the crucial issues which have been fully exposed by the real estate mogul.
No, Trump will not win the nomination of his party, which most likely will go to the most liberal of the republican candidates, yet another Bush. America has not yet reached rock bottom, although we may be seeing at a distance the fatalistic pit of the abyss. But Trump’s controversial message may have at least stirred up some subtle reaction from the timidly concerned, intimidated and muffled other side of the political and social spectrum.
