“Trump is usually rude and obnoxious. His demeanor can be arrogant and dismissive. At times, he comports himself as reckless and willing to lash out prematurely, prior to fully understanding all of the facts at hand. To put it simply, he is a wrecking ball.”
The above comes from a recent article by Timm Amundson on The Federalist. While a Trump supporter, Mr. Amundson apparently felt he first had to apologize to his “conservative elitist friends.” It sounds very similar to other articles I’ve read about “conservatives” who dare support Donald Trump. They are always careful to maintain political correctness.
Since every human being is sinful and has many faults, a writer could choose the same type of opening paragraph for just about anyone. Why is it that only Donald Trump deserves this treatment? Did we encounter this during the administration of Bill Clinton? Do I need to remind anyone of his vulgarity? And how about the vulgarity of pretending to be conservative while enthusiastically endorsing John McCain and Mitt Romney in the past two presidential elections? Or the vulgarity shown by the GOP establishment with their constant threats of a brokered convention to suppress the voice of the Party’s base? It all depends on what the meaning of vulgarity is, right? As a matter of fact, Americans should welcome a Trump presidency with open arms, not only for what he can accomplish, but also for replacing the vulgarity of the Obama family with the classy Trump family. It would be an astonishing transformation and welcomed in every corner of the world.
I accept Mr. Trump the way he is because the Lord does also; just as He accepts me and you. I have never heard bad words from Mr. Trump. The accusation of vulgarity comes from privileged elitists who have no respect for working people in places like Queens and Brooklyn where Trump was raised. As his son Donald Jr. says: Donald Trump is a blue collar billionaire. Love it!
Donald J. Trump recognizes that is the working American people who make this country run. As a young man, Trump worked alongside construction workers. He learned more from the working men and women than our congressmen ever do. He knows the working class and respects the workers as individuals not the collective mass politicians see as just people who are expendable and, can be replaced by foreigners at lesser salaries in order to please the Republican Party donors. Trump would end their gravy train!
It is not “vulgarity” that the GOP establishment and the media actually care about; it is the way Donald Trump’s honesty has damaged their political correct speeches and their lack of transparency in legislation. No more hiding behind “reaching out to Hispanics” (code phrase for welfare to illegals); no more hiding behind the “race card” that continues to hurt Black Americans living in Democratic cities; no more hiding behind the “feminist card” of being offended when a woman is not strong enough to face competition; no more hiding behind “islamophobia charge” for wanting to vet Muslim immigrants; no more hiding behind “DREAM” for the Mexican children crossing the border illegaly. It will all end!
Donald Trump talks plainly and directly; he lets everyone know exactly what he thinks and what he’ll do to make America great again. And none of it includes the old politicians, the media, the lobbyists, the DC insiders. Finally the American people found a true patriot who is willing to sacrifice in order to stop the corruption of the DC bureaucracy. Welcome Donald Trump! We’ve been waiting almost three decades.
For those who continue the mantra that Mr. Trump is not conservative, what ever it means these days, let me enumerate his position on our most pressing issues:
- Against illegal invasion of our country by securing the border building a WALL that Mexico will pay for.
- No amnesty. No sanctuary cities.
- Building a strong defense, with a feared military capacity.
- Support and help for our veterans, ending years of mistreatment.
- Support for our law enforcement agencies, such as the police and ICE.
- Stop the acceptance of Muslim immigrants until a time when we have a better understanding of the problem. Best to build a safe zone in their countries.
- Destroy ISIS and fight radical Islam
- Rebuild our country infrastructure.
- Re-think and re-negotiate NATO and the expense of having our military all over the world.
- Reduce and eliminate our over $19 Trillion debt.
- Eliminate waste by closing or reducing certain departments like Education.
- Reduce taxes for the low income and middle class Americans.
- Reduce regulations for businesses.
- Eliminate Common Core and make education local.
- Defend the Second Amendment.
- Repeal and replace Obamacare with private plans.
- Negotiate trade deals that are fair and take our country into account first.
- Bring jobs from overseas.
- Pro-life and support for our religious freedom rights.
- Become energy independent by exploiting all sources of energy production.
Which part of the above is not conservative? If these positions are not conservative, then I’m not one because I support them. We need to stop labeling ourselves Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative, and start by being American first.
Cruz supporters would still say that Trump is not serious about these positions because he once was “a Democrat.” First, take a look at the table below that shows his political donations since 1989; keeping in mind that business people always give these donations to both parties.

Second, why is Trump lying now after so many years while Cruz tells the truth now after only the few years he’s served in the Senate? Senator Ted Cruz voted in favor of amnesty; never proposed building a wall; voted for a very large increase of H-1B visas; favored neoconservatives in war expansions; never intervened for our veterans; and wrote with Paul Ryan an op-ed in WSJ in favor of TPP legislation. Lately during campaigning he seems to have changed his mind on several issues.
Donald Trump, unlike Ted Cruz, has already accomplished much in life. Not only Trump has the business experience, but more important, he has life experience. Not only has he built an excellent business but more important, he has raised incredibly excellent children. By their fruits, you shall know them!
