Of course, now will come the cries from all of the “Political Pundits”, both professional and self-proclaimed, insisting that Trump “tone it down” and “move to the middle”.
Rush Limbaugh offered the following advice in his opening monologue on his radio show yesterday:
There are people who tell Trump, “You’ve gotta change, now. You have won the nomination. It’s not the primaries. It’s the general. You have to change.” And what that means is: “You have to tone it down! You have to dial it back. You have to become more presidential.” Whatever the advice is, it will consist of people thinking that Trump now has to grow in stature, in office, and drop whatever it is that worked during the primaries because they’re over now, and we’re on to the general, and it’s not a whole slate of opponents. It’s one opponent, and there’s all kinds of money involved now.
And the biggest mistake Trump could make would be to take any of that advice. The biggest mistake Trump could make would be to listen to anybody who tells him it’s time to change. Now, some of the advice is intended to sabotage, even people supposedly in your own circle. Folks, there’s envy and there’s jealousy within every organization, and in something like Trump’s — which is red hot. It is the focus of attention in the modern world today, and everybody involved wants the light to shine on them, too. It’s human nature.
… Everybody who is a powerful personality, who is generating a lot of heat, who is winning at what he’s doing and Trump’s doing all of that by a multiple factor of 10, Trump just owns it right now. And there are people that don’t like that. There are people that want to be part of it. There are people who want you to think they are responsible for it. There are all kinds of people surrounding Trump right now, and I’m guarantee you that he’s being advised by… I don’t know who they are, but I will guarantee you he’s being advised to change.
He’s being advised… He’s being told by some people, “You can’t do it this way! You can’t keep doing it the way you’re doing it. You’ve got to change. You’ve got to become more president. You’ve got to do,” whatever. He’s got people on his staff telling him to ignore that, too. Don’t… He’s got all kinds there. The point is, he ought not listen to anybody except the people he goes to to ask questions. But if somebody comes in and starts giving him advice, let it go in one ear and out the other.
Depending on who the person is, be respectful. But Trump’s instincts are just fine, and he had better continue to trust them. He had better not start doubting them. He’d better not let other people make him doubt them.
I agree with Rush.
Trump does not need to change who he is.
As his rising Popularity Polls show, Trump is striking a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.
To put it in simple terms, Americans are angry.
Americans’ palpable anger is one which has been building since January of 2009, when a Lightweight, who seems to have as much in common with us as a Martian would, was inaugurated as President of the United States of America.
That anger, a result of Obama’s anti-American actions and resulting policies, which have affected Americans’ daily lives, has been exacerbated by the Republican Elite, who, in their desire to “reach across the aisle” and “go along to get along”, have distanced themselves from the Conservative Voting Base, who elected them to Congress in the first place.
Meanwhile, average Americans, like you and me, remain mired up to our necks in an abysmal swamp of bills and taxes, living paycheck-to-paycheck, afraid to make a move, for fearing of drowning in an ocean of debt.
Seemingly forgotten, in all of the forgotten promises, made by Barack Hussein Obama, are the 94 million Americans, who are no longer, largely through no fault of their own, participating in our Workforce.
You want to talk about anger and frustration?
Try looking for work, when you are over 55 years of age.
It makes you want to give up…daily.
But, I digress…
Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country, which will be lucky to survive Obama’s final year in office.
It was anger that formed our country….an anger over being held captive to “Taxation Without Representation”…an anger which, as a prime example of history repeating itself, Americans are experiencing, even as I type this blog.
It is this anger, aimed at Professional Politicians and the Washingtonian Status has propelled Donald J. Trump and those who prefer that things remain the same, know it.
The indisputable fact of the matter is that, in “Open” Primaries, Trump did even better than he did in those primaries in which only Republicans could vote.
Trump is building a Coalition.
Americans are fed up with the Washingtonian Status Quo.
We are tired of professional politicians’ empty promises and their failure to properly address the issues facing America, in any way, except a self-serving one.
Paul Ryan and the Vichy Republicans, as I dubbed the Republican Establishment a while back, until recently, have hung onto a slim hope that they could, perhaps, somehow derail “The Trump Train”, through the “power” of Republican Moderation, a “power” which has turned out to be as big a gross overestimation as the one regarding the invincibility of the RMS Titanic.
Average Americans will no longer tolerate a Republican Party who would rather be enablers of those who wish to “radically change” America, than be seen as opposing them.
The meteoric political success of Trump’s is partially a matter of timing.
Also, Trump is not afraid of hard work, as shown by his successful business career.
Trump has demonstrated at the past, as Rush mentioned, that he has great instincts.
These instincts have served him well in his Presidential Campaign.
Trump was in the right place at the right time with the right message.
Donald J. Trump is unabashedly American and an advocate for American Exceptionalism.
Trump speaks of “possibilities” and is offering a view from outside of the Washington Beltway.
The reason Trump is winning so many votes, including those of Democrats?
He is offering the possibility of a brand new “Morning in America”.
And. voters are desperate to wake up from this Long National Nightmare.
Until He Comes,
