The Great Debate!

The first Big Debate is coming up. It’ll be on the Fox News Network Thursday at nine o’clock. On that stage there will be ten people. Eight career politicians – and Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson. You can bet the eight are right now cloistered with their consultants and working out questions to trick Trump and Carson. They have little concern for presenting solutions to the many problems our nation has accumulated over the last six years of social engineering. Career politicians don’t solve problems, they create them. And then they throw tax payer money at the messes they create.

Watch what happens in the debate. The most important thing to the Jebs and the Perrys and the Christies is eliminating Trump and Carson. They must defeat those two – because they are a serious threat to the republican establishment (which looks just like the democrat establishment). Politicians have a “code” for speaking to the public. Their only real accomplishment is that they have developed a talent for saying a lot of empty words that sound great, but mean nothing. Both Trump and Carson speak the truth, something that is so rare in political circles that it has given the American people a glimmer of hope, and they in turn have rewarded Trump and Carson by pushing them way up in all the polls.

Dr. Carson has escaped a lot of the vitriol, but Rick Perry is almost apoplectic when he talks of Trump, I’m afraid the man is going to have a heart attack. Jeb “Mr. Cool” Bush is dismissive, because he knows he already has the nomination in the bag because the DC Republicans want a nice moderate who will compromise with Democrats. Scott Walker won’t answer questions about Trump, and the others are also-rans and don’t count.

I’d like to be a little fly on the wall in those Republican back rooms. “Those jerks don’t know anything about foreign relations!” “Why, neither of them have ever held a public office!”

If I were a betting man I would put up my right arm that both Carson and Trump have been to more foreign countries, talked to more foreign leaders, and in the case of Trump have negotiated with more foreign powers than ANY of those life-time politicians on their tax-payer funded “fact-finding” trips. (A fact-finding trip is where we pay for a politician to take his family and friends on a free vacation.)

Dr. Carson wants to do away with “foreign aid,” except in certain cases such as aid to Israel (which is our only ally in the Middle East). As he says, “Why should we be borrowing money to give to countries who hate us? That’s crazy.” What a novel idea! Is there a normal American who hasn’t had that thought for decades? Trump wants to FINALLY seal the southern border and get rid of illegal immigrants. If a poll were taken of the American people on only those two points I can assure you that most would whole-hardheartedly agree with those positions.

What Bush, Perry, Cruz, Walker, Kasich, Christie and all the others can’t comprehend is that the American people have been through six years of living hell. We’ve had a race-baiting, lawless, anti-American foreigner ruining our country. We don’t WANT another politician as President. Trump, Carson, and Fiorena are great candidates, and the citizens of this nation will take them in any combination. They are real people. They are not afraid of offending some fringe idiots by telling the truth. They don’t speak in platitudes and they don’t cozy up to any organizations just to get money. The fact that they haven’t been politicians is their greatest asset. And any of the three can beat Hillary or Biden.

Unfortunately, politics being the slime pool it is, the American people be damned, the Republicans are going to nominate Jeb Bush. They can’t allow an honest person to disrupt the good ol’ boy network. And Dr. Carson may go back to being the good man he is by using his influence to motivate young people. But don’t count out Donald Trump. He is a renegade, and he hates to lose. Honest, hard-working Americans at last have someone on their side.
