Alright, you old Sesame Street Viewers, sing along,
One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things, just “doesn’t belong”.
Last night, during the Prime Time Republican Presidential Candidate Debate, it seemed as if the Republican Establishment had called in a favor, as the only non-professional politician, “brash interloper” Donald J. Trump, was the focus of attacks from not only his fellow candidates, but the Fox News Moderators as well.

KELLY: Mr. Trump, one of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don’t use a politician’s filter. However that is not without its downsides, in particular when it comes to women. You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals. Your twitter account
TRUMP: Only Rosie O’Donnell.
KELLY: For the record, it was well beyond Rosie O’Donnell.
TRUMP: I’m sure it was.
KELLY: Your twitter account has several disparaging comments about women’ looks. You once told a contest tent that it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound like the temperament of a man we should elect as president? And how do you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton, who is likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?
TRUMP: The big problem this country has is being politically correct. I’ve been challenged by so many people and I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either. This country is in big trouble. We don’t win anymore. We lose to China, we lose to Mexico both in trade and at the border. We lose to everybody. Frankly what I say and oftentimes it’s fun, it’s kidding, we have a good time. What I say is what I say. And honestly, Megyn if you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you although I could probably not be based on the way you have treated me, but I wouldn’t do that. But you know what? We, we need strength, we need energy, we need quickness and we need brain in this country to turn it around. That I can tell you right now.
The Republican Establishment just can not seem to figure out why Donald J. Trump is currently the frontrunner among all the Republican Presidential Candidates?
This brash, unabashedly American, business entrepreneur and quintessential showman has dominated the media for the past several years.
The popularity of his reality program on NBC and the catch phrase that came leaping out from it, “You’re fired!”, spread across America like wildfire.
Now, his Presidential Campaign is doing the same.
It is not just his flamboyance that has caught the eye of Americans.
The fact is, after almost two terms of an Administration taking the great country in the world on a scenic tour of the Highway to Hell, Donald Trump is the only Republican Candidate shouting, “Hit the brakes, you idiots!”
Trump’s straightforwardness has struck a chord in the hearts of average Americans, tired of the wussification of America, being so relentlessly pushed by both modern political parties.
Last night, it was painfully obvious that “the fix was in” and, that the Republican Establishment is “concerned”, to the point of feigning embarrassment, over the words and actions of the famous entrepreneur.
This is what I don’t understand about the Republican Establishment.
They run around telling everybody how Conservative they are, when in reality, they actually hold the same beliefs as Liberal Democrats.
Ronald Reagan gave a famous stump speech about the fact that the Republican Party at one time, needed “bold colors, not pale pastels”.
From what I’m seeing out of a lot of the Republicans right now, they’re not even presenting Americans with pale pastels.
…Except for Donald Trump.
Trump upsets the status quo.
The Establishment Republicans are showing their color to be Liberal Blue, while they claim to be Conservative Red.
It is almost as if they believe that the Political Tsunami, which resulted in Republicans holding both Houses of Congress, came about because they made themselves look like Democrats.
If Americans were enjoying the Washingtonian Status Quo, we would not have given the Republicans control of the House and Senate in the last two Mid-Term Elections.
If we wanted to continue to put up with their Liberal Stupidity, we would have left all of them in office.
Instead, last November, we showed the Democrats and, those , who were not doing their jobs, the door.
The Vichy (Establishment) Republicans need to come down off of Capitol Hill, every now and then.
And, visit Realityville.
Average Americans, like you and me, living from paycheck to paycheck in America’s Heartland, do not need another Democratic Party.
We know how to spend our hard-earned money, just fine, thank you.
And, we don’t want it spent selling the body parts of babies slaughtered in the name of personal convenience.
Trump has found his popularity, whether it lasts of not, by saying the things that Americans are thinking and feeling.
Americans are fed up with Political Correctness and the professional politicians’ sacrifice of America’s Traditional Values, for the sake of political gain and political expediency.
If Jeb Bush and the rest of the Vichy Republicans actually believe that they will win over the Mexican vote, or the rest of the Hispanic Vote, if by then those who are now illegal are allowed to vote, in 2016, then I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell them.
The overwhelming majority of average Americans want Conservatives whose blood runs red, not Liberal squishes, who have more in common with the snooty Democrats in the Northeast Corridor, than they do with average Americans in the Heartland.
If the Republican establishment does not come to that realization very soon, they will go down to defeat again in 2016.
They will never achieve victory by trying to push the epitome of “Liberal Moderation”, known as Jeb Bush, down the throats of their Conservative Base.
American Conservatives, here in the Heartland, are not changing our time-honored American Faith and Values for a bunch of mountebanks who act as if they care about our opinions come Election-time and, then, ignoring us, until they seek re-election.
Even buying off Fox News, will not change that fact.
Please reference their Facebook Page, where they caught you-know-what, all night long, for their obvious duplicity.
In summation, the American people are tired of the anti-American political expediencies being forced down our throats by both poltical parties.
Donald Trump, for all of his brashness and braggadocio, is a breath of free air and, quite frankly an anomaly. He’s not a professional politician. He is a businessman who wants to become a public servant.
Now, where did I hear that before?
That’s the way the Founding Fathers envisioned our system of government, led by citizens, who served their term s as public servants…AND THEN WENT HOME.
But, I digress…
You know what tickles me the most about “The Donald”?
He reminds me of one of my favorite movie characters.
He actually has a backbone.
Just remember what ol’ Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol’ storm right square in the eye and he says, “Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it.” – Jack Burton, Truck Driver (Kurt Russell) “Big Trouble in Little China”
…and that, boys and girls, is a refreshing change.
Until He Comes,
