Roger Simon sums up my thoughts very nicely, because I did not feel like taking the time to type it all up. Herm Cain basically agreed with every word.
1. Trump is far better than Clinton. Not even close.
2. If Trump would have ran as a Dem, he would terrify me as a guy that could win...but, he would be far less evil than Hill/Bern.
3. The excitement he has brought the GOP, bringing out new voters, as well as many independents and Dems, is a dream come true. Huge turnout on one side, low on the other. And instead of celebrating it, we're looking for ways to sabotage it.
4. It's also very ironic...people complain, "All these candidates suck. They are all awful, all the same. We need someone like you and me to run. Someone who will (wait for it) tell it like it is."
Stuart Varney said this AM that Donald Trump is a direct result of eight years of Barack Obama...an economy at a standstill, foreign policy where the US is afraid to offend. Trump is the anti Obama, he says exactly what's on his mind.
I will be supporting the GOP nominee, because I have no interest in seeing the greatest country in the world struggle because the leader does not believe in checks, balances, or capitalism. Trump might well have had a chance to change history had he ran as an independent, and while others disagree, his chances may actually increase with three candidates in the race. People talk his negatives, but his numbers almost mirror Hillary's. Imagine what Hillary's would be without the old media ignoring Benghazi and the fact she insisted there were no classified emails, attempted to cover it up, and they've still found thousands.
EDIT: By the way, seeing tons of thoughts like this the last few days..."many prominent Republicans and some Democrats as well, are quietly waiting to see if Trump does indeed become the presumptive nominee, to make their support public and endorse."
Remember what I said a few days ago, how MN people made fun of those voting for Ventura...and it led to a movement. Those who liked what Ventura stood for...mostly people who never/rarely voted, people who did not feel represented by either party, many drawn to him by his bold personality (is thing starting to sound familiar?), began to show up at rallies en masse, and realized they were not alone.
Two of my favorites, Palin and Christie, who do not agree on many issues and have snarked on each other on several occasions, were gutsy enough to endorse early. They believe in the Constitution, and both are firm conservatives...there's always going to be minor differences.
I'll never forget Ventura, when told by a teacher how poor she was, and that she could not afford to teach, responded with, "Maybe you should work in the summer then." The response was as you would expect...teachers, who were never going to vote for anyone who was not part of the money laundering union/Dem relationship, hated it; but the quiet majority, those that pay huge money for their own health insurance, work 60+ hours a week, smiled and thought to themselves, "Finally, someone that gets it."
