Category: Our crazy and very complicated American political scene.
Here’s what someone sent me today, which perhaps reflects the views of many others.
have been drawn between candidates and have not made up my mind?
Trump does bring some new ideas to the table. I just need some
particulars before I follow the Pied Piper.
When was the last
time you could vote for the ideal candidate? I’m old, and I always
voted. I can’t remember ever thinking any were ideal.
always have two choices, usually Tweedledee and Tweedledum. If you
didn’t vote for Tweedledee you get Tweedledum. That’s the way it is
Now consider this……An interesting analogy.
been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is
infested with rats. Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean, rats have overtaken
your basement. You want them gone immediately so you hire a guy. A pro.
You don't care if the guy smells, you need those rats gone pronto and
he's the guy to do it! You don't care if the guy swears, you don't care
if he's an alcoholic, you don't care how many times he's been married,
you don't care if he has plumber's crack...you simply want those rats
gone! You want your problem fixed! He's the guy. He's the
That's why Trump. Yes, he's a bit of an ass.
Yes, he's an egomaniac, but you don't care. The country is a
mess because politicians suck and we are all sick and tired
of Tweedledee and Tweedledum choices. The Democrats are killing us, the
Republican Party is two-faced and gutless, liberals don’t have a clue,
and illegals are everywhere. You want it all fixed!
care that Trump is crude, you don't care that he insults people, you
don't care that he had been friendly with Hillary, you don't care that
he's been married 3 times, you don't care that he fights with Megen
Kelly and Rosie O'Donnell, you don't care that he doesn't know the name
of some Muslim terrorist...this country is weak, bankrupt, our enemies
are making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegals, we are becoming
a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hamid is a special
group with special rights to a point where we don’t even recognize
the country we were born and raised in; “AND WE JUST WANT it FIXED”.
Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.
You're sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, the
Republican Party, and sick of illegals. You just want this thing fixed.
Trump may not be a saint, but no person or company he has ever
done business with has come forward and called him corrupt, or hard to
do business with. He doesn’t have lobbyist money holding him, and
he doesn’t have political correctness restraining him. All you know is
that he has been well educated at the University of
Pennsylvania Business School, seems to have boundless energy, has been
very successful, a good negotiator, he has built a lot of things, and
he's not a cowardly, deceitful, professional, politician. And he says
he'll fix it.
