For those of you who are too stupid to figure the Trump thing out.

You stupid people know who you are, you liberals, "independents", and new to the club, conservative pundits.

"Gee, I just can't understand why Donald Trump is doing so well in the polls."

If you can't figure out why Trump is doing so well, then you are too stupid to be allowed to vote, and you certainly are too stupid to be expressing your opinion with any form of mass media.

Do you want to know why Trump is doing so well?  I will explain why and try to keep it simple enough so you stupid people will be able to understand.

When Scott Walker was running for governor of Wisconsin, he promised that under his administration, there would be 250,000 new jobs created in the state.  That surely influenced many people to vote for him.  Well, he did not manage to reach that number, but he did reach almost half that during his first four years.  Not bad, especially when you consider the direction the state was headed in before he took office, and certainly better than what would have happened if his opponent, Tom Barrett had won the election.

Walker has since won both a recall election and re-election, so you can trust that most of the people who voted for Walker the first time around are more happy with the direction the state is moving, than disappointed that Walker did not meet his promised goal. After all, the only thing anyone can do, is give their best effort. End results are always subject to countless outside variables.  

My point is, at least Walker said what he was going to do, and then made every effort to make it happen, and most of the people who voted for him are satisfied.  

Now let's look at Trump.

Donald Trump Says Immigrant Deportations Done in Two Years

In this Aug. 29, 2015, file photo, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump answers questions from reporters.
Associated Press
Donald Trump estimated that it will take 18 months to two years to get the roughly 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally to leave the country, and that he would then build a wall running along the border with Mexico.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question:  Will Trump really get rid of 11 million illegal immigrants with in two years of winning office?
Answer:  It doesn't matter.  Not now anyway, and probably not even after two years of him being in office.  Virtually everyone that voted for him would be satisfied if only managed to bring down the number of illegals entering the country down to zero.  Anything more would just be gravy.  
None of his opponents, Democrat or Republican have even mentioned doing anything like this, not even close.  Trump probably won't be able to meet his stated goal, but if he only accomplishes twenty five percent of it, that will be more than his opponents are even suggesting. 
The same is true with everything else Trump is promising - Getting tough with foreign adversaries, getting the economy going, etc.  It doesn't matter to Trump supporters whether Trump attains his goals or not, they would just enjoy seeing someone who actually tries to accomplish what he said he would.  Things they care about.
Now some say that Trump won't do what he says he's going to do, and maybe he won't, but at least he says he's going to do something.  I don't see the other guys saying much of anything.  What are the chances that they're going to do anything?
I'll tell you what we don't need, is a Dole, McCain, or Romney version 2.0.  We all already know what formula to use to not win elections.  This is not to say that there aren't any other qualified republican candidates.  Actually, there are more out there this time around than any other time I can think of, but I think that Trump has the best chance of beating whoever the Democratic candidate may be if, and it's a big if, one that I will get around to explaining later.
Don't tell me about experience or qualifications.  After what we've had in the oval office the past two terms, it should be abundantly clear to everyone that those things don't mater to the American electorate.  What matters is magic.  Magic made of ingredients that neither I, nor anyone else, can exactly put a finger on.  All I know is that the ingredients necessary to make this magic differ with each election.   A candidate either has this magic or he doesn't.  He can't learn it and a campaign manager or the media can't give it to him.  Like it or not, Obama had this magic.  So did Clinton and Reagan.  You know it's true.  Dole, McCain, and Romney didn't have it.  Neither did Dukakis.  You know it's true.  At least right now, Trump appears to have the magic. Can it last?  It could, and now, here's the if.
Trump could win this thing.  Hillary is in big trouble right now and Bernie Sanders is a self-described socialist.  Even with as far left this country has veered, that's still a big turn off to more than fifty percent of voters.  Trump could win this thing if, if the conservative pundits and commentators would just lay off him.  In a way, it would be a miracle if Trump won because nobody except the voters seem to be on his side.  I've had it with these right wingers bashing Trump, saying, "He's not a real conservative", "He's supported liberals and liberal policies in the past", "He will never be able to do what he says he's going to do, etc.
Anyone who says those things, doesn't know Donald Trump and they haven't been paying attention to what's been going on the past seven years.  Donald Trump does what's best for Donald Trump, and right now, getting this country moving toward the right (Making America Great Again) is best for Donald Trump.  Obama has done (a lot of bad) things that no one would ever dream he could do, or even try.  Who says Trump can't do what he says?  In a weird way, Obama has opened the door for a Republican president to not only undo what Obama has done, but go beyond that and rectify some things that were previously thought to be impossible.
I can't guarantee that Trump will win the next presidential election, but I believe he has a better chance than any other Republican candidate.
I also can't guarantee that Trump will actually do what he says he's going to do, but if If Trump accomplishes just ten percent of what he promises, he will accomplish more than what his Republican opponents would if they accomplish everything they say that they're going to do.
I always thought that Trump was a arrogant, loud-mouthed, asshole, but right now, that's exactly what we need to counteract the damage that's been done the past several years.  Polite, courteous, humble and soft-spoken ain't gonna cut it this time around.

Look at that shit.  The font is larger on the last two paragraphs.  I didn't change the size, and it looks the same size when I compose or edit it.  What's up with that?  Freakin' blogger.  Well, I'm not gonna mess with it now. (or probably ever)  It's late and I'm tired.  Going to bed.

  2. I have to give Trump credit for bringing immigration up for discussion and giving us all a civics lesson in what happens in DC and elsewhere and that is money talks. Some of his economic ideas are half baked for a guy who does real estate deals since I here no talk from him shutting down most of the federal government or the federal reserve.

    He is damn entertaining though!

    1. It has gotten to the point where I want to see Trump get the nomination just so I can see all the conservative pundits and politicians who have been bashing him, forced to do 180's and support him.
