Over and over again the left AND the right try to get a knockout on Donald Trump.
But what happens?
He's not knocked out.
He's not even knocked down.
To the contrary, he is still standing and seems to become stronger!
What is going on with this phenomenon?
Some would like to call it perhaps a psychosis of the masses.
Other like to belittle those that like him by dissing their intellectual status and calling them stupid.
Many even seem to go to every extreme to to make him out as crazy, fascist, bigoted, hateful, and a con man.
Yet, for the most part it's doesn't seem to be working--people are still flocking to him.
It's like the more they try to gang up on him, torment him, bash him, and zing him--and rather than buckle, he is still there standing and remains strong--perhaps, the more "proof" it is for people that he can and will stand up for America!
With dismal ratings for the President, Congress, and government overall, the outsider, the business man, the billionaire, the dealmaker, the one who isn't afraid to speak his mind and to say to the people the non-politically correct thing is coming across refreshing to many who are seeking change from the the last 7 years, 15 years, or further.
With many seeing the current politics of the U.S. as leading from behind, appeasement, weak, divisive, and disengaged, it is not surprising to see bands across America yearning for something more.
Is Donald Trump strong and anti-establishment or truly bad and dangerous?
This is for America to seek the truth on and wisely decide.
What's riding on this?
Whether Trump OR another candidate to be determined --(someone/anyone) -- can potentially get things positively and constructively done in our large and complex political machine that has in many ways become increasingly stymied by bureaucracy, obstructionism, defeatism, game-playing, selfishness, pork barrel politics, (corruption,) sequestration, government closures, and political fighting across the aisle/behind the aisle/and in the aisle.
Let's hope for America and the world's sake the voters get it right.
But keep bashing Trump and you are keeping his message of superior strength and hope very much alive. ;-)
