Donald Trump is a rejection of the Republican Party mainstream in political form. As strange as it may seem because of Trump’s own lack of a clear philosophy, Trump is the logical extension of the sentiments of the Tea Party movement having grown more angry, more bitter and more contemptuous of their own supposed ”representatives.” It may very well be a reason why Rand Paul failed so horribly. He too, after all, has abandoned his base for political gain. In which way has he become a spokesman for the true feelings of American conservatives who feel abandoned? By seeking a shorter distance to the GOP mainstream and progressives, he showed that he cannot be relied upon by regular conservatives.
You couldn’t get any better, more detailed, more honest answer to the question why Donald Trump is so popular right now with so many people. It is difficult to “get” if you’re part of the mainstream because they honestly cannot see what many of their mainstream political policies and positions have wrought on ordinary people in the United States. There is a saying that says “you will reap what you sow.” The mainstream, especially in the Republican Party, has sown. And now the time has come for them to reap the bitter fruits. And if Donald Trump does not win, and the GOP does not take heed, the fruits will become ever bitter.
Average Americans have to glance over their shoulders and make sure there are no hostile commissars around before they declare support for a mainstream political candidate. This is happening not in the USSR, but in the USA.
This is why we support Trump.
We fucking fear you and we fucking hate you.
But you aren’t even content to sneer at us. Instead, you traitorous bastards (the mainstream GOP, ed) attack and mock us as cowards for writing anonymously because we don’t want to lose our jobs and be the subject of a national two minute hate. Not once did any of you even wonder why your base, the people you supposedly represent, have to hide behind pseudonyms and proxies simply to talk openly about politics. Instead, you insulted us for not wanting to lose our jobs.
We don’t fucking care about your “conservative principles” of hating Russia (the only major power fighting degeneracy and supporting the church), amnesty for invading illegals, corporate subsidies, homosexual marriage, slightly lower taxes, increased debt, and minor hedges of Obamacare. We don’t care if Trump hasn’t been ideologically pure; you didn’t when you forced Romney(care) and amnesty McCain on us. We don’t care if he doesn’t fit in the ever-more-left overton window. We don’t care if his Christian convictions are superficial (it’s been 40 years and you’ve done shit all about Roe, not to mention you’ve done nothing to prevent Christians from having their businesses destroyed by kangaroo courts). We don’t care if he gave money to Democrats a decade ago (y’all keep importing new voters for them).
