I think Bill Whittle, a perceptive political sage of our time, hit the nail on the head. Why do people continue to support and vote for Trump through all the bombastic name-calling, the whining, the 3rd-grade behavior, the contradictions, the narcissism, the gloating and the lack of an in-depth understanding of political issues?
The American people have watched this political system and how bad it has operated. How Harry Reid strangled the Senate and refused to let any bills come to the floor. How our President thumbed his nose at the Constitution and governed by Executive Order. How the Republican Establishment went along to get along and developed a severe case of paralysis and no guts. How the leadership of both parties is more interested in getting re-elected than in the welfare of the country. How our President says the number one issue of National Security is Climate Change, not Radical Islam which he fails to even identify. How Crony Capitalism has infected our culture. How the 1st Amendment of both freedom of speech and religious freedom are under attack by the government. And likewise, the 2nd Amendment, our right to bear arms. How political correctness rules the day.
All this the American people have put up with for over 20 years. And now they say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
The reason for Trump’s popularity is that the American people know that Trump IS THE ONLY PERSON RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT WHO WILL BLOW UP THE PRESENT POLITICAL ORDER AND STOP ALL THE SHENANIGANS. HE IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE BALLS TO COMPLETELY CHANGE THE WAY THE GOVERNMENT DOES BUSINESS AND HOW IT OPERATES. They don’t care that he is not a true, blue Conservative. They want this corrupt system of government to be done away with. And they are placing their bets on Donald Trump as the only one who can do that.
And they know a vote for Hillary or a nonvote, will double down on all the failures of the Obama Administration and continue the corrupt and failed way the government now operates.
