“We’re going to have so many victories,” Trump told the audience, as the overflow crowd in New Hampshire recently. These were the words America wanted to hear. “We need victories”, trumpeted from what can be considered one of the greatest communicators we have seen witnessed on the campaign trail for President of the United States of America. This is why on the stage of 17, the rest pale in comparison.
We have spent quite possibly the past decade doubting our abilities, second guessing our motives and generally spawning a generation of young people who actually don’t believe that America is “great” or “exceptional” at all. The apology tours, the racial strife, the divisions within the populace, the general malaise and self flagellation left many feeling alienated and asking themselves “is this really my country?” leaves the people crying out for relief. The message of Donald Trump, “trumps” all of those feelings and returns the possibility of “hope and change” without the “white knuckled” feeling that this “change” will be more of the same “end runs” around Constitutional laws, demonizing the American people, virtual anarchy, racial violence and irrational, violent police attacks we have been witnessing.
For those who have felt as though they do not matter, for those who have had reasonable doubts about the “phony baloney” unemployment decline, for those who are really in the majority, the idea that “This guy isn’t afraid of anyone!,” as well as the knowledge that he is “beholden” to no one, completes the package. Lobbyist, ” the dreaded hedge fund guys” and special interest groups will not be able to “mark” or buy the “Trump Card” for their own advantage over the “average Joe” …. otherwise known by the so-called political class as “crazies”, “neanderthals”, “uneducated” , or other diabolical names conjured up by the liberal media on the left and right. He says that he neither wants nor needs their money.
People feel that Donald Trump can “call it like he sees it” , for example, Trump said, referencing recent jobs cuts at Nabisco as it moves some operations to Mexico from Chicago and decrying China for its recent dramatic currency devaluation.
“What that means is you hear that sucking sound? You know what that sucking sound is?” he asked
“Jobs!” shouted several people in the crowd.
Who speaks to the people and makes them feel as though he is speaking to them? Donald Trump. AND he spoke in English, not Mandarin Chinese as John Huntsman did to a puzzled crowd on the Presidential campaign trail in South Carolina last cycle, or the constant break-away’s in Spanish as Jeb Bush seems to like to showcase because he speaks it at home….. regularly.
The noise of the establishment journalists highlighting their “terrifying nightmares” that he will emerge as President aside, people have long stopped trusting them because their love and affection was so slathered over Barack Obama for the past few years that people tend to tune them out…. even when they might have a point or two that would be worthwhile. They (the media) are viewed as petty, untrustworthy and worse than that “liars” who are in the tank for any liberal idiocy that they are told to sell. Outside of the usual weather disasters, vehicle crashes, sports coverage and police chases, people tune them out and turn their channel to where they get “real news” – for better or for worse……….. If you don’t believe that, explain the loss of esteem experienced the once venerable newspapers in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
So after years of having the “race card”, the “gender card”, the “homophobe card”, the “isalmophobe card” and other “victim” cards pulled out of the back pocket or the hat, is it any wonder that the “silent majority” is enthusiastically reaching for their “Trump card”? I have heard a male member of the establishment crowd refer to Trump as a loser among women because he reminds them of their “first husband”…….. as a woman who speaks to a lot of women, I assure you that is not what many of them are saying. The overly sensitive, “cry guy” who constantly says “yes dear” while perfecting his roast, IS the “first husband”.
By the way, one definition for the “trump card” found in the dictionary is “The trump card is the winning card.” Going back to what Donald Trump told the audience and repeats on just about every broadcast, “We’re going to have so many victories,”…… America is waiting for those victories, enthusiastically.
