As Donald Trump's presidential campaign started up last year, I warmed to his candidacy based on decades of his financial successes, business leadership, common sense, and in spite (maybe because) of his rejection by the Republican Party hierarchy.
A "breath of fresh air" summarizes my feelings that he might be the answer to the confusion and hand-wringing in Congress. His financial strength, business successes and lack of any serious political or legal baggage have stymied his opposition's attempts to discredit him.
In this country, at this time, I don't see anyone else with guts and financial strength who seem able to survive a predictable campaign of character assassination coming from both sides of the congressional aisle.
The negative side of Trump's persona is his obvious disinterest in being a political "mister nice guy." His business affairs have benefited because he is a benevolent dictator.
Never miss a local story.
Sold out to financial capitalism, he has acted lawfully judging by his opponents failure to attack him legally. Trump's attitude and successes are desperately needed now in the president's office, to confront those who have nearly succeeded in destroying the founders' Constitution and dreams for a brighter future.
Many men know when time is limited and running out. Some realize that financial success may be sweet but it isn't the ultimate accomplishment in life. I think Mr. Trump knows democratic Republicanism in Washington has nearly been destroyed and he may be chosen to restore the founder's dreams. Even if this isn't his reason for candidacy, it is mine, and I'm ready to support his election as our next president.
How could he possibly do worse than Wilson, Johnson, Carter, Clinton and Obama?
