“Have Donald Trump’s politics really evolved or does he simply value pragmatism over principles? Liberty Pen”
From Liberty Pen
The so-called success and popularity of Donald Trump (and no one knows especially The Donald how long it will last and only time will tell and back to Bob and the whole bit) has to do with dumb voters in America who are simply looking for someone to represent them. And at the very least take them back to a time where the country looked and acted like them.
The Donald, who is more qualified to run for uses car salesman in chief, or narcissist in chief than Commander-in-Chief, sees a huge financial opportunity here to create his new realty show: “Who Wants Donald Trump For President?” Which should also be his campaign theme by the way. Because it would actually be accurate.
You have a group of Middle-America, or Silent Majority voters, old, dumb Anglo-Saxon, Southern/Midwestern Protestant (voters to be more accurate) who are looking for someone who talks like they do. Who doesn’t speak in terms of diversity and that diversity is one of our greatest strengths and immigration is what built America and we need make America great again, as if we’re not currently great and go down the line.
The reason why a Donald Trump can replace a Mitt Romney as Flip Flopper in-chief, is because he’s speaking to voters who don’t bother to look at the records and careers of politicians. Because that would require reading and perhaps having a computer. What they do instead is go off the latest soundbites and speeches.
Anyone who follows and takes American politics seriously, knows that Donald Trump is not only not a politician, because he’s never held office, but if he was a politician he wouldn’t get away with perhaps half of the flip-flops he’s had in his career.
If The Donald could only speak to Americans who take politics seriously like the real activists on both sides who bother to looks at candidates records and see if what they’re saying now matches up with what they said before, The Donald would have to run a completely different campaign. And he also couldn’t run as a Republican because of his long support for Planned Parenthood, the Clinton’s, saying Democrats do a better job of managing the economy and again go down the line.
How else can you explain someone like Donald Trump, who has been multiple choice on most of the major issues in the country, getting away with being about hundred-percent pro-choice on abortion and even in favor of Planned Parenthood, who once supported the flat tax and called Bill Clinton a good if not great president and said that single-payer is the way America should go when it comes to health care reform and these are just a few examples, getting away with changing every single position that he’s had on these issues.
The voters The Donald speaks too don’t bother to look at the records and past policies of their candidates. Because that would require effort and work and perhaps intelligence as well. And besides, they are just soundbite voters who breathe a lot of hot air, even in Minnesota in January.
