Why Donald J. Trump Appeals to Americans

As I was going through drafts of posts that I was working on, I came across this gem.  Turns out that I wrote this 8 months ago during the primary season but never got around to hitting the “Publish” button.  Better late than never.

The media and political class can not understand why Mr. Trump leads in the polls despite their many efforts to smear and lie about his campaign.

As a GOP primary voter, let me explain.

Americans are sick and tired of being lied to by career politicians, political elites and media personalities.  We have had it with elected officials that refuse to adhere to the Constitution and do the will of the people.  We are not stupid and we don’t forget.  GOP voters worked hard to give Republicans a majority in Congress and what did we get?  Repeal of socialized medicine?  No.  Elimination of  funding for the current Administration’s unconstitutional efforts to allow illegal aliens to remain in this country when they should be deported?  No.  Decrease in appropriations for wasteful government programs.  No.  Border Fence?  No.  Halt to efforts to bring in more refugees?  No.  Nada.  Nothing!

We know that the left wing media lies to protect these people and we don’t give much credence to what they say.  Americans  rely on common sense and facts when making decisions about the issues facing our country.  Who cares what socialist commentators have to say – they are hell bent on turning this nation into a communist hell hole.  Nothing that they say is relevant.

Opinions and so-called facts peddled by the “Establishment,” whether they be from the media or the political class are quickly vetted by the electorate and when found to be false (as they usually are) that propaganda is filed where it belongs – in the trash.

And then they vote for Mr.  Trump.

We are not uninformed people.  We know that our country is under attack and we will not let it be destroyed without putting up a fight at the voting booth. We owe that to future generations.

During this primary season, I have a list and I am checking it twice to see who is a threat to liberty or a defender of my God-given freedoms.  Who adheres to the Constitution and puts the interests of American citizens first? Who will make excuses for continuing to fund wasteful government programs and agencies?  Who will lend their support to allowing countless illegal aliens and refugees to invade our country?  Who supports amnesty?

Here’s my list.  If a politician can not abide by the first principle I don’t care about their positions on anything else.  Not voting for you.

  1.  If you do not understand that there is no “We the People”  without guns and ammo and that attempting to curtail the right to bear arms is unconstitutional and the tool of tyrants (Amendment 2 for those ignorant of the Constitution)…
  2. If you can not condemn the acts of terrorism committed by Muslims as well as their efforts to slaughter Christians in the Middle East…
  3. If you can not condemn the unconstitutional efforts to permit illegal aliens to stay  in America when they should be deported…
  4. If you can not affirm that liberty is incompatible with big government…
  5. If you can not affirm that people who are here illegally should be deported without haste…
  6. If you can not take the time to study the history of the 14th amendment to understand that it was ratified to affirm the citizenship of former slaves and it does not confer citizenship to children born to illegal aliens and foreigners who conveniently manage to pop out a child while on our soil after sneaking into our country or overstaying their visas…
  7. If you can not affirm that this country was founded on Judeo-Christian values and that we have a right to uphold that heritage…
  8. If you cannot affirm that refugees need to stay in their own country and that the ones who are here need to go home…
  9. If you do not understand that referring to Americans as hyphenated-Americans divides and weakens us…
  10. If you can not affirm that socialized medicine is unconstitutional and a threat to liberty and should be totally dismantled in this country…
  11. If you can not affirm that we are a sovereign nation and have the right to determine what goes on in our country without interference from other countries…
  12. If you do not believe in securing the border and keeping illegal aliens out…

I WILL NOT BE VOTING FOR YOU!

But I will vote for Mr. Trump.  Me and millions of other Americans.

He understands that elected officials must adhere to the Constitution and put Americans first.

As long as Mr. Trump continues to speak the truth, never backs down and keeps fighting for Americans, he will get the votes of millions of Americans across the country.
