Written slightly before the First Republican Debate on August 6th 2015
The Psychology of the Trump political Phenomenon
People like me are excited about Donald Trump just as we were excited about the Tea Party. Kind of the unexpected help that came out of no where to suddenly be a force to be reckon with. A force so threatening that opposition forces will come together and attack. Democrats and establishment Republicans alike get nervous when you mention the Tea Party and Donald Trump. Because we were badly looking for someone to stand for our point of view. Represent what we saw and believed that America was is and should be . This is the Trump we love.
Trump the Conservative Mercenary
We know that Donald Trump gets things done, he is very successful, and maybe above all he is a man with extreme confidence. People take him seriously . They respect and fear him. They listen to him when he talks. I mean many people on the Conservative side were whispering and murmuring about Barack Obama not being from America. Do you remember it was Donald Trump who relentlessly went after President Obama . Asking him again and again can we see your birth certificate Mr. President? That got President Obama to come out with his birth certificate. So let us not forget that we have a history with Donald Trump as a voice. We have a history of Donald Trump as force. We have history of Donald Trump fighting for the conservative theme.
Send us a leader
People love Trump because he is what our Democratic leaders but also too many of our Republican leaders are not. They are not getting things done, very successful at their job, and they don ‘t have extreme confidence or instill it in their country or citizens. They are mostly talk and little substance. Instead of listening to them talk people are tuning politicians out. In a gallop poll done earlier in 2015 the amount of people with confidence in the office of the President is down 10 pts from 43% the historical average to 33% . Confidence in the Supreme Court is down from 44% to 32% of Americans. Lastly and certainly least confidence in the Congress is down from the historical average of 24% to a measly 8% . So a very successful Business man who America respects and knows comes in and says a lot of the right things in the right ways. Straight forward and with passion. No political speak Americans have come to loathe. No political slime on him.
With all of the business success of Donald Trump people are believing that he can do the same thing as President. If he was President that he would get things done. People would respect us again. Syria would not cross the red line set by the President that turned out not to be a red line because America did not do anything to back up the statement. Putin would not bully a free nation like the Ukraine annexing their land. Isis would not be so embolden to do such heinous acts against against men,woman, and children. Attacking the homelands of America and the West seemingly knowing that President Obama and the liberal wing would do as much as possible not to defend the national interest of the United States . Yes Americans are feeling that a person like Donald Trump is what we have badly missed. A man of strength and honor to lead us and fight out battles instead of capitulating.
