Donald Trump is a businessman and all businessmen explore ALL different ways to make money. It’s like business 101. So sometimes that means you appease certain people (gee, that sounds a lot like a politician) to get what you want; Democrat, Republican or Independent. We are just used to a politician starting from only one point of view so it freaks us out when we see Trump sitting in different political party chairs when the music stops.
As far as him switching to Independent, if you think about “The Donald” he has been doing things independently his whole life. The question is will he care what we think in the future? Well I think at this point what Trump has been doing is screaming for blogging out loud)) things seem so obvious to him and he’s had it. Just like a lot of us have. And I guess there are a lot of us because just look at these poll numbers.
Trumps brashness and personal insults are similar to what has happened to our society. We have mixed up personal freedom of expression with our vocabulary of insults, cursing (not that he has yet, I don’t think) and a general lack of respect for one or the other. Which has come from the adoption of rap music (yes, I said it and for all fans who have just experienced a rise in blood pressure, FACE THE MUSIC! And see “You want racism, we got it.” for reference). Its like a adolescent screaming out every single curse they had heard up to this point, because it is a “F*ck you” world now. See “The black domino effect” how a group was clueless why I would say something.
So Donald, you are connecting with people, we get that you are saying what we feel and we need to know that someone who is running for the President is not so politically correct. But to continue further you have to lay off the personal insults. Because I think that’s the only way that you will get the Republican nomination. What has worked for you has some shortcoming in the political world. We expect to see a certain amount of respect in our President. It makes you wonder will you blow up with Putin? (I doubt it.) Donald is like Bugs Bunny (I’m writing this on Bugs 75th birthday) in that he drives a lot of people crazy. So Trump is the “wascally wabbit” and he enjoys it, or is he like Foghorn Leghorn?
We did the first two, we’ll let you have fun matching up the rest.
So I think that Trump will find more and more people who are also screaming for blogging out loud)) and his numbers will follow, BUT…))
