Yesterday on the Facebook, I had two very different Mikes come to the same conclusion with regard to my liking Donald Trump.
The first Michael, whom I refer to as M., and who owns this site, warned me that “the Don” is a flip-flopper who sounds like the Bill and Hillary of yesteryear. The only problem I have with this conservative argument is that every candidate has flip-flopped on something. As far Trump sounding like the Clinton’s of yesteryear; newsflash: They won.
The second Michel, whom I refer to as Mike, warned me that the U.S. was in great danger of only electing the very wealthy, and that the divide between the rich and poor in the U.S. had grown more than any other country. The problem that I have with this liberal argument is demonstrated by simply observing news footage from across the globe. In Mike’s defense, he did come back to clarify that Trump only cares for Trump.
Now being that he is of the liberal persuasion, it was to tout Sanders as being one who has not changed his positions, and is for the common man. The problem I have with Sanders is that he is a socialist. Why does that bother me? Socialism historically is a gateway drug to communism. Once you go there, you’re talking about a far greater disparity of wealth than any capitalist society.
Here’s the way I see it: Trump has been on both sides of the aisle, so he knows how the game is played. It is true that neither he nor Sanders are taking lobbyists’ money. One is an egotist, the other very humble (too humble, imo, particularly when he let the BLM shut down his rally).
Getting back to Trump, some may compare him to Obama. The big difference is that 1) Trump will not have congress approve jackasses into key positions (he didn’t make billions appointing stupid people.) 2) Trump wants people to be proud to say “I’m American” because he wants our country to be the greatest again. So while he may have the ego of Obama, their outlooks for this country could not be further diametrically opposed.
While I am not trying to sound like a soothsayer, I will say that I’m very, very good at reading people. This is why I love the two Mikes………………and Trump. J
