Comments on: Poorly educated? Unsuccessful? Trump is your man http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2016/03/30/poorly-educated-unsuccessful-trump-is-your-man/ Tracking U.S. politics Tue, 29 Nov 2016 15:56:30 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: JonSEAZ http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2016/03/30/poorly-educated-unsuccessful-trump-is-your-man/comment-page-1/#comment-496330 Sat, 09 Apr 2016 21:48:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/?p=46871#comment-496330 I am educated, informed, and successful in both personal finances and life. I am a long-time registered Republican.

While Trump has his faults, I support him over the other candidates. I cannot stomach Hillary; Bernie makes his points, but his economics are not sustainable; the other GOP primary candidates beyond Cruz and Trump already have lost, and I have come to abhor Cruz, for so many reasons.

I refuse to vote for an “Establishment” anointed candidate, particularly one who has not gone through the primary process. I also intensely dislike the attitudes of both parties that voters don’t choose the candidates, but rather the party establishments do so.

For these reasons, I support Trump. Nearly all my friends are both educated to the graduate level and all are successful in life. Most of them either support Trump or at least are leaning that way. All with whom I have discussed politics are disgusted with the GOP and its establishment and very unhappy with the idea that they are fighting at every turn the will of their base.

The GOP arose upon the ashes of the Whig Party, which fell apart because of internal tension and was dissolved in 1854. Until then, the Whig Party was central to the Second Party System. The GOP establishment needs understand that nothing is permanent, change is constant, and that all things, both good and bad, eventually come to an end. I do believe that the GOP as a political force has run its course. They have fully succeeded in alienating their political base.

TRUMP 2016!!

We’re sick of political correctness, feminism, needless bad relations with Russia, etc. Yes, NATO is obsolete – the Berlin Wall is down, no more NATO needed! We like that Trump speaks his mind unlike phony, smug establishment politicians. Thank you.
