I admit that at the beginning of the Presidential campaign season I wondered about Donald Trump and his motives for wanting to run. Here’s a guy who doesn’t need to do anything other than count his money and golf, or whatever it is rich old guys enjoy. So why on earth would a guy like this blow a boatload of scratch on a Presidential campaign?
So was the Trump bid for President a power trip? A bucket list thing? I was looking for motive, and I generally don’t see the best in people until it’s blatantly obvious. I am cynical by nature. I figured it was one of those celebrity prank type things for the longest time.
As time went on and I listened to Mr. Trump, he made sense. What he was saying and his proposed vision for America struck a chord with me. After eight years of Obama and his complete ineptitude, it was refreshing to hear a Reaganesque voice amid the defeatist, globalist noise.
Needless to say I am thrilled at the prospect of a fundamental change of direction in American government- a rejection of globalism, a return of national identity, and dare I think it, a return to American hegemony on the world stage.
I don’t really see any need for being a graceless winner. I think it’s blatantly obvious that the anti-American agenda has been rejected. No reason to rub it in.
