Donald Ron Paul Trump



One of my favorite commenters hit the proverbial fingernail with the hammer (the truth hurts) on who Donald Trump is.

Ron Paul.

Finding much the same sort of backers of Trump, as I did for Ron Paul. Totally ignorant of many issues in the world, and latching on to one thing. I knew fools who support a Canadian style Single Payer health system who were Ronulans ... yeah. Trump bleated about illegals, fine, great, what else does he stand for? those backing him tend not to know. Do the know if he is a gun grabber? An abortion supporter? Crony Capitalist who favors bailouts? They can't answer any of that, but dammit, he's got their support. Do I think he'd be better'n 0bama is and Hillary, Sanders or Biden would be? ... likely, he would be. But there is not much to being better than those four and he is way over there with them on way too much stuff. And he can't really claim to be all that great a businessman ... how many times has he gone bankrupt now? He might be good at starting stuff, but his long term running seems more than a bit lacking.
Trump is forcing Republicans to stand up to the Chamber of Commerce and close the border. The border is open now, at least with Mexico. Anyone can go from Guatemala to Texas now. We did however close the Canadian border west to Lake Superior for reasons I cannot fathom..

  2. Thanks for the compliment, Don.

    I should soon be moving back to Michigan and will try to get the "Enhanced License" so a passport is not needed to hop the border. Last time I went to Canada it was about like taking a toll bridge. Stopped the RV at the shack, handed the driver's ID over. it was glanced at, handed back, and then the rest of us all waved and we proceed to Sault St. Marie, Ontario, Canada. an hour later (unbeknown to me after one of the others made a drug delivery) we hopped back in even less time. Both shacks' residents just waved us through.

    Still finding even some die hard conservatives who seem to think Trump is the answer.
    Egad. Of all the people who should know better.

    1. I should note that trip was back in '82 or "83. I moved away in '84.

  3. Trump may not win the nomination and if the rinos running the party treat him fairly he may not run as an independent. He's been important in bringing out topics that need to be discussed. Those topics may carry over to the general election because of Trump. For that reason I am glad he's running.

  4. Trumps positions are vague because he never gets asked about them by the rating hungry media. But then again the media knows it's viewers don't care what he believes. The debate on Fox was just a gotcha game of a very low order just like Ails and Murdock wished it to be.

  5. I am not convinced that Trump is in it for the long haul. I don't see him having the discipline for the campaign trail, and if he should become President the position would be way too confining for the way he does things. I haven't figured out his end game. I have joked to friends that there will be a new reality show next season: Trump The Candidate.

    1. If Teh Donald can't handle "hard" questions from Fox News, he's really gonna get upset during the primaries, much less the main election.
