Trump: The Great Orange Hope?

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires” 2 Timothy 4:3

By now we know that bombastic businessman Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee for President as a Republican this election.

I am at a total loss as to how so many allowed themselves to be deluded by such a charlatan running what I can only call a “slash and trash” campaign, very reminiscent of the actions years past with Ron Paul supporters.

Interesting enough, now those same people that joined Trump in trashing any and every body not supportive of the poseur are now demanding we all get behind and support his bid, engaging in fear mongering of a Hillary Clinton win.

Sorry, but I have said all along that Trump was nothing more than a shill for Hillary, sort of a Ross Perot on steroids if you will.

Particularly curious to me now is that after the past seven years of complaints of no vetting for Barack Obama, no curiosity of his past stances or history, these same people either refuse to look at or just outright ignore Trumps record and history.

They ignore all evidence of his distancing himself from the Republican Party as early as 1999 when he was quoted in a New York Times article saying, “I really believe the Republicans are just too crazy right.”

But today, voters are to believe he is the true Republican running even further right than those he condemned back then?

His positions wander all over the board, not too long ago stating five different positions just on abortion alone!

Along with his trashing of Jeb Bush he claimed if elected, “you will find out who really knocked down the World Trade Center. It wasn’t the Iraqis.”

Never mind that no one ever said it was the Iraqis or that Saddam Hussein had any hand in it.

Little wonder the Bush Presidents, both of them have stated they will remain on the sidelines this election and not endorse anyone.

He has even expressed support for a single payer healthcare system, the actual goal of Liberal Democrats with Obamacare. But wants you to believe he will repeal Obamacare?

And replace it with what, the Liberal Democrats actual end goal for healthcare?

That wall along the Southern Border we have been hearing about now for decades and he promises will be built? Not so fast, he has waffled there admitting how he even used immigrants, benefiting from low wage undocumented immigrants.

His list of flip flops just keeps growing and growing with no end in sight.

Will he one day flip flop on his support of the second amendment? He quickly flipped on an Assault Weapons ban as he progressed. How can anybody be certain he won’t flip back if elected?

Now we are to believe that he is “the Great Orange Hope” to save America from Hillary Clinton, after his many years of praising her and courting both her and other Democrats?

And now, mush as we saw with rabid, foaming at the mouth Paulbots in the past, devotees rely on fear mongering and actual threats to forcibly grow support for him?

I get that he said many things early on that conservatives have been saying and the Republican Party did not support in years past. But he never gave any solutions, just “trust me, I’ll fix it.”

He never explained just how he will gain any Congressional support for his plans, leading me to believe that he would rely on Executive orders, bypassing Congress.

I’m sure you recall Obama’s reliance on Executive orders that many complained about for years were violating the constitutional separation of powers.

I imagine that opposition would evaporate when their “Great Orange Hope” engaged in the practice.

He’s made a lot of noise on bringing jobs back to America, but somehow neglects to mention all of his profits made by outsourcing jobs to Bangladesh, China, Honduras and other low-wage countries for his line of apparel.

His devotees are now running around claiming if Hillary is elected president, the fault rests on the heads of those of us that have said we will not vote for Trump under circumstances.

They are wrong!

Any fault rests squarely on their own heads as for months we have tried to warn people of the close links between the Clinton’s and Trump. We have spoken of how he has portrayed the Republican Party in the vilest of light he could every time he spoke.

We have shown evidence of what I call draft dodging during the Vietnam War that I and many others without wealthy fathers were sent to, all ignored.

Although I never formally signed on, Ben Howe of #NeverTrump lays out my own views and feelings perfectly.

I can only add to his words, you Trump devotees wanted him, you got him. How you will get him elected is your problem, not mine.

You elected Hillary, not us.

As Paulbots of years past wanted with Ron Paul, get who they want nominated by hook or crook, just get him nominated, ignoring how many state no way ever would they vote for him. Trump devotees now carry the same disillusion that people will just blindly jump in behind their chosen poseur.

Y’all are about to be smacked square in the face with a huge dose of reality.

If only our own media were interested in vetting Trump.

Oh people in America, what you have done!

I disagree with some of the things you said, Lou, in this article but I do understand them...they're not quite right, however.

I am voting for Trump because he is the only candidate that is Constitutionally able to do so. Comrades Hillary and Sanders are not Constitutionally able. Cruz is not - he was a Canadian citizen when he elected for Texas senator in 2012 and I didn't vote for him because I already knew he was a neocon - he became a US citizen in 2014 then sealed his records, like obama did.. Rubio is not. Kasich is an idiot.

Trump is by no means a conservative by any stretch of the imagination and on the other hand, he most certainly is not a neocon (which includes the likes of 99% of the CONgress Critters) and PERHAPS, and I do say, PERHAPS, he might be in the boat that God Himself is driving, not Trump.

I do believe, prayerfully so, that God's Hand is in this "race". Hillary is going to lose in a huge way and I think all Trump is going to do is make it known who the neocons are (the Trotskyists under the guise of the University of Chicago in the 1930s before they were known as the neocons) to We The People.

No matter who wins, the words of Thomas Jefferson will ring true...the blood of tyrants and patriots.

Trump is a very successful business man and we haven't had anyone like him for a very long time.

The world has indeed seen others like Trump, but people will have to wait to see it, if they ever do.

We remain a free society, for now anyway, so people have the freedom to choose how they please.

Seems though, I was mistaken on people complaining about there not being any vetting of Obama would want all future candidates vetted.

I can only put the information out. It is up to people what they do with it.
