Trump vs. Women: Who wins?

Standard

We are in election season Ladies and Gentlemen and the claws are coming out.
I can’t help but notice the many Donald Trump 2016 bumper stickers and the “Make America Great Again” signs. Again I’m not against either the Republican or Democratic Party. This is just about the individual himself.
Now, I’m not one to tell you I told you so, so I’ll just prove it to you. See below:

Again, it was all fun and games until it was realized that Trump’s bigoted and misogynistic rhetoric was somehow hitting home with a large majority of folks.
Now the RNC is scrambling.
Let’s be clear about a something…
America never was great in the beginning without a little assistance from different races and from different countries. I’ll beat that horse on a different day.
What truly concerns me about those who drink Trump’s Orangeade are the women who blindly follow this man without thinking about where his political platform and policies will eventually lead them.
For years, women from every race have fought for gender equality. To be equal to peers or male colleagues in education, rate of pay and voting rights among other things.
We’ve worked hard, shoulder to shoulder, to fight for the rights we do have and in a blink of an eye they can be stripped away because we’re thought to be “hormonal.”
Trump has a long history of disrespecting women and flat out being a sexist bully who has a habit to speak before he thinks.
Is this the man you want to make America great again?
If the answer is yes, then that’s your constitutional right and I commend you for using it despite the side you may be on.
Speaking of sides…
Think about this the next time you go to a Trump rally and actively spew hate against African Americans, Hispanics and protesters – Once the wall is built and Trump has put everyone on the other side just like he campaigned ask yourself this:
When will it be my turn?
Because after all, a three-time divorcee who happens to hold tight to his misogynistic ways couldn’t possibly think of women as second-class citizens could he?
Although you have to think about everyone else he’d labeled as second class citizens.
You remember them right?
The Hispanics
The African Americans
The Anchor Babies
So if they’re consider second-class and you’re considered second-class as women, doesn’t that put you in the same boat?

Trumped by Trump — Poor GOP

Standard

Preface: I’m not touting either political party in this blog.

The latest presidential conversations have focused on or around Donald Trump and his politics. Since his announcement to run for the President of the United States in 2016 for the Republican Party, he has offended a few groups of potential voters – Hispanics, veterans and prisoners of war, and fellow Republicans – causing the Republican Party to create a small but clear distance from him. Ironic.

It was all fun and games when one of the richest men in the U.S. said he wanted to run. The GOP was okay with that.

It stopped being funny when he said some things that I’m sure have been said behind closed doors on more than one occasion about immigration. It became downright serious when the GOP realized that the citizens of America actually liked what Trump was selling. Now it’s just horrendous that people are taking him seriously with members of the same party calling his successful lead a “temporary loss of sanity” on behalf of American voters. Not very nice Mr. Paul.

As much as this gives me déjà vu of Herman Cain and his 9-9-9 plan, I do think that the GOP is missing the most critical part of Trump’s success as a candidate.

Trump is not a politician.

He’s not being politically correct, he’s not backpedaling from comments that have been made public and he’s not pretending to know everything.

What he is doing, however, is vocalizing many of the thoughts, questions or concerns that Americans have had for years. He is thinking like a citizen and businessman of the United States of America and not like a politician that sits and makes decisions for taxpayers. That’s his appeal. That’s his charm.

That is also why he has become a credible threat to other candidates. He is consistent, he is open and he is straight-forward. He is everything that politicians are trained not to be. He is viewed as a fellow American. One who has built a successful empire – an empire that can withstand losing a couple million because he decided to say whatever he wanted.

He’s just a business owner with deep-pockets, a hard head and a loud mouth. Like everyone else.

I’m sure that’s what made it all fun and games when he announced his bid for the 2016 presidency.  Now you say he can’t be taken seriously yet he leads your party among voters in the country. Now you want to ignore the fact that he is running a real campaign. It would seem to me that the GOP has been trumped by Trump.

Is it still fun and games?

I’m just saying.
