NOT GOOD: The Donald Trump Problem — And the Naive Voters Who Support Him

Whenever I hear Donald Trump discuss the issues I feel like I’m listening to an immature 15-year- old.  His outrageous over-statements and bragging are irresponsible and childlike.  However, they sometimes appeal to equally immature and/or uninformed voters – not good!

A lot of under-informed voters like Donald Trump because of his bold and confident and bombastic pronouncements that he would make America great again by fixing all of our problems. 
Trump equates running his enterprises, where he is king, to running the US Government and Military, where he is not king.  He would be restrained by the Constitution, the Rule-of-Law, the Separation-of-Powers, the Congress, the Courts, Public  Opinion, International Law and a vigilant Media.      
As the senior executive and controlling shareholder of Trump companies, Donald has been able to operate as a quasi-autocrat – imposing his will, thinking and values on his organizations.  He apparently thinks he could do likewise as President and Commander-in-Chief.  He thinks he could force his will and ideas on the USA and our allies – as he has done upon Trump organizations. Not so!
Frankly, this is naïve. The USA is a Constitutional, Law-and-Order, Representative Republic.  No one – not even a de facto Marxist/Fabian-Socialist/Radical-Leftist like Obama – can dictate the nation’s actions and results without running into legal, Constitutional and Geopolitical restraints.
The Leftist mainstream media like to feature Trump’s outlandish bloviations in an obvious effort to encourage his Republican nomination and/or to encourage an independent presidential run.  Either result would assure a Hillary presidential victory – and a continuation of the failed Obama/Pelosi/Reid/Clinton/Democrat-Leftist big, centralized, authoritarian, Leftist government in Washington.  
If Republicans have any practical sense, they will drop Trump and quickly counter the Leftist’s desire to run against him.  The Conservative RedState disinvite in Atlanta is a good example of what must be done.   Trump’s CNN attack against debate co-host Megyn Kelly for what he considered unfriendly/unfair questions shows his immaturity and poor judgment.  What does he think will happen if the Dems take him on. 
Frankly, Republicans should disqualify Trump from future Republican forums.  He’s not really a loyal Republican – just a super-rich, immature, real-estate tycoon, quite full of himself.

In God we must trust . . . but we must always do our part – to secure and promote the truth and a better way – to protect our freedom and interests – and to defend the Judeo-Christian American-Way.
