Part of the election process is that people want to “like” whom they vote for.
When I say to “like this person,” they must have many of the characteristics that they themselves have.
That is one of the reasons that Obama won both times is that he is likeable. You will notice in the polls that one of the categories is “likability.”
On that trait alone, Bernie Sanders should win, as he is probably one of the most likeable candidates around.
He is an old hippie who espouses something just this side of communism, which resonates with the millennials. They feel that have been disenfranchised by corporate America because they have paid the big bucks for student loans and companies are not jumping through the hoops to court them with 6 figure salaries and the corner office!
Companies are leaving the country because of people like Bernie but that is another story!
If Bernie were elected his plans would cost another $20 Trillion dollars in just 4 years. I do not think that any member of congress is that braindead to sign off on it.
Firstly, those who paid the big bucks for college, get over yourselves. You start in the mail-room or some other entry-level position and work your way up.
If you want to make good money from the get go, be a plumber or AC repair-person or yes, even a mechanic. You will never get rich, but you will never lack for work. Your white collar counter parts will spend more time unemployed than you.
Character is the defining trait that you should be looking for when you vote.
- What has the person done?
- What is their record of accomplishment?
- Who owns them?
Which group of special interests has given them millions of dollars to hire all of these specialized marketing and PR firms to sway a certain group of voters by telling them exactly what they want to hear?
I do not care personally if I like them or not, I want someone who will do the right thing and make the tough decisions. I want a candidate that will keep the country safe and defend the constitution!
You have no doubt heard it said repeatedly, it is always between a lesser of two evils.
Let me pose this question to you.
What has to be going on in someone’s mind for him or her to think that they are good enough to be the President of the United States? How much EGO and Narcissism, not to mention delusions of grandeur, does it take to run for president?
They all share that trait; the only one that will most probably not change is Trump. Moving into the White House would actually be a downgrade for him. Is that humility?
Since Trump is funding his own campaign you pretty much have an idea of who and what he is, the rest are total unknowns, as you have no idea who owns them.
Is he a bully, I think he can be. Will he keep his word? I think so. Will his family keep him grounded? I hope so.
Since all of the good old boys and even the other billionaires are fighting Trump, it seems like an easy decision to me.
Just think … all of the billionaires that currently buy politicians will lose their control! The American People might actually get their government back! Special interests might have to take a back seat until someone of lesser intestinal fortitude, wins the office.
For the record I don’t think that Trump is an “Evil,” I think he is a necessity. I think that he has the Swagger to tell those who try to stick it to us, to go F#$K off!
Just my thoughts!
