Trump?


This past week has confirmed to me that Donald Trump is unsuited to lead this country.  Yes, there are people that would flame me for that statement, but bear with me.

Donald Trump has definitely tapped into the disgust that Americans have for their elected representatives, and the apparent failure of the representatives to lead and respect the Constitution.  Instead, the representatives seem to be wedded to their party’s ideological mindset, and “business as usual.”  This is extremely apparent in his various speeches leading up to this past week’s debate, of which he was a no-show.

Instead, giving the reason that he did not want to be subjected to questions from one of the moderators (of which he has a public tiff with), he was across town raising money for veterans.  Good reason, bad decision…

By bowing out of the debate for what I would consider to be a very childish reason does not show a maturity that I would expect of a leader that has the responsibilities of leading this country.  Trump is loud, obnoxious, and has a great deal to say about a great number of things, especially when he is campaigning.  But running away from a confrontation with a person that he has a beef with?

Let’s just throw in his political affiliations he has had in the past just to muddy the waters a bit, his past views on various issues before he started running for President, and I have to come to this conclusion:

I just do not see Trump as presidential material.

Yes, he is a successful businessman.  Yes, he’s poking his fingers in the political pundit’s eyes.  Yes, he makes speeches that electrify the crowds.  He says what we want to hear.  But I just do not see where Trump in the White House is good for the country.

With that being said, if Donald Trump is the Republican nomination for President, then I will vote for him – what the Democrats are proposing on their platform will continue to damage this country.

God help us all.

    Well said. If we end up with Trump, it’s because we deserve it.

  2. I agree with Roadhouse, and glad to see him here. I haven’t heard from him in a long time and glad he is still around. As for the post…..great post Tom. You hit the nail right on the head.

    With Trump, we’ll have to hold our noses if he’s the nominee. Personally, I am becoming more and more impressed with Cruz.
    reply from Robert: Personally I have always been impressed with Cruz. He went to congress to fight for the people who he represents and he has done that from day one. It is what is scaring the liberal establishment to death…..and why they keep hitting him with such terrible diabtibes.
