Trump is truly a scary guy. He must be. The RNC and other conservative groups are out to hamstring him at every turn. The quote, unquote Conservatives say he has flip flopped repeatedly over the last 30 years, blah, blah, blah. These groups are collectively wetting their pants at the idea of a Trump presidency.
Despite the “old guard and RINO” opposition, Trump continues to hit on the topics that are most dear to the heart of the middle class American.
Let’s examine that term, “middle class American.” Who are the people that fit into the category of the term?
Middle class Americans are the working people. They have gone out of their way to educate themselves, learn a trade, start a small business or have a service that is in demand. They took the education provided here in the United States a step further by PREPARING themselves for a career that would provide financial support for their future.
They are teachers, doctors, medical personnel, lawyers, accountants, management personnel, landscapers, military personnel, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, construction workers / contractors, entrepreneurs and more.
They are the backbone and the pocketbook of the United States. They are not poor, neither are they wealthy. They are the largess of the tax payers, being too rich to get out of taxes, and too poor to have lawyers looking for tax loop holes that will benefit them.
They are somewhere in between. Hence the term, “Middle Class.”
They are the demographic group that makes up the theoretically ignored “middle child” of any and all of the campaign rhetoric.
They are the group who are on life support after eight years of the current administration, clinging to every breath and heartbeat by their fingernails. They hope to hold onto the little bit they have left after the destruction of the “The Great Recession,” by working hard every day.
These are the ones who are completely and totally fed up with the outsourcing of manufacturing jobs, the high cost of healthcare, the wages that in NO WAY have kept up with the cost of living, the complete vacuum of available employment opportunities to the career professional and the ones who fund the “entitlement” programs with their tax dollars.
They are the ones who find resonance with Trump’s ideals. They are looking for Trump to destroy the “old boy” system that protects elected and government officials that break the law and thumb their nose at the consequences for their actions. (This would include almost every single, highly placed player in the current administration.)
Trump will not play these types of games with law breakers. He is a very hard hitting businessman. He doesn’t lose.
So, the status quo are literally soiling their trousers at the idea of Trump presidency. It is proof indeed that the extreme reaction by politicians of both parties, the media and the largest corporations has been so quick and violent against Trump, that they are scared absolutely witless.
With Trump, the Beltway house of cards will tumble down, fast!
Whether one loves or hates Trump, one cannot disagree that he gets the job done.
He can self-fund. He is beholden to none of the usual suspects in this corrupt election process.
He doesn’t need their money and their opinion is of no importance to him either.
He is asking the questions that the establishment would rather not have come up.
The Republican Party and the elected officials thereof have bent over backwards to accommodate the current administration. Obviously, everyone is in bed together and it is a cozy setting to make millions for themselves. It is amazing how they cannot stand up to or stop the current administration, even as their constituents clamor for it, but can instantly band together to bash Trump.
Trump is positioned to rip the covers off their bed of sin and no one wants to see that happen.
Trump is playing the middle class’ song and everyone is singing along, because they thought no one knew the words anymore. Trump has taken the lead with those who have had ENOUGH.
Whether he ultimately wins or loses, his very campaign has awakened the complacent giant of the American Middle Class, who has been ignored, hopefully for the last time.
It is time for the middle class mice to ROAR!
