Donald Trump – Not politically correct.

There are many people around the world who wonder why the American presidential candidate is so popular in the polls. You will find the following article by David Limbaugh very interesting. This is probably the best written statement that's come along as to why Trump is leading the Republican candidate polls. This man is an articulate & eloquent wordsmith with a talent for framing his arguments in visceral terms.   His discussions pretty much puts America's political scene, as impacted by Trump, in crystal clear focus.

While our politicians are trapped in political correctness, this guy is “attuned” to what the bulk of the population is thinking and, he says so, in other words, he calls a spate a spate and not a shovel.

When Tony Abbott our former PM made a speech recently and said exactly how things are, he was vilified. Are our politicians really so “lily-livered” and frightened to tell the truth and, not constantly kowtow to a minority in our country who wants to foist their ancient culture on us?  Perhaps our politicians can learn something from this article below. - Werner
The Establishment Birthed Trump.
Much of the establishment's criticism of Donald Trump comes from its failure to comprehend the reasons for his soaring popularity. Establishment types seem untroubled by the problems facing America, so they can't understand the urgency that fathered Trump's rise. Minor adjustments to the Hindenburg's dining room menu just aren't going to get it. (Like organizing the deck chairs on the Titanic after the iceberg strike?   Ed.)

Their overwrought analysis, their hand-wringing and their contemptuousness for Trump, betray a disdain not only for Trump, but for Americans who recognize the gravity of America's predicament - and who, in desperation, have turned to Trump for bold action.

It's hard to overstate Americans' concern for the state of the nation. Horrified by President Obama's Sherman-esque march through America, they're tired of hearing that nothing can be done. They are through with empty promises from establishment politicians.

People are tired of Obama's pitting blacks against whites, women against men, gays against heterosexuals, rich against poor, non-taxpayers against taxpayers, citizens against cops and his Muslims against Christians. They can no longer stomach Obama's apologizing for America and excusing terrorists while rushing to attack Christians at every turn.

People are sick of being called racists for things that happened in this country before they were born or before they could vote, for opposing Obama's destructive agenda, or for simply being Republicans.
They abhor the war on cops orchestrated by racial hucksters and pandering politicians. They're incredulous that any president would deliberately engineer America's decline and degrade our military. They're tired of the nation's chief executive officer's flouting laws and thwarting the people's will.

Americans are sick of Obama's trashing America's founding, assaulting capitalism, and bellowing about man-made global warming as a pretense to impose more liberty-smothering regulations. They're nauseated by politicians who are more interested in bipartisanship with scofflaws than with saving the nation.

People are mortified by the nation's fiscal instability, our unbridled national debt, its spiraling entitlements and Washington's refusal to address them. They're sick of the fraudulent spending "cuts." They've had their fill of the lies, especially about Obamacare, whose costs dwarf Obama's promised projections and are getting worse by the day.  They've reached their limit with this administration's rewarding unemployment and laziness while punishing work, its honoring socialism and demonizing capitalism.

People are sick of politically correct bullies. They're exhausted by lectures about not paying their fair share when half the income earners don't pay income taxes. They're fed up with lies about decreasing unemployment rates when tens of millions have dropped out of the workforce.

Every other week, we face a new existential threat to the nation - threats perpetrated or enabled by Obama and the Washington establishment. But the establishment meets these perils with very barely disguised indifference. Islamic terrorism is overrunning the Middle East and has reached our mainland, and Obama doesn't dare whisper its name.  Obama refuses to enforce the borders; he orders his administration not to enforce immigration laws; he lawlessly grants amnesty to millions of immigrants who are here illegally; and he's using the government departments to set up sanctuary cities that harbor criminal immigrants.

Last year, we faced an invasion from Central America; now, in the name of compassion, we are inviting in Syrian refugees - some 72 percent of whom are, curiously, men. Are we truly afraid to wonder aloud whether those who sidestep the legal immigration process will embrace the American idea? Whether they will end up on the welfare rolls?

With Congress' help, Obama bypassed the Constitution's treaty clause and entered into a reckless, non-verifiable nuke deal with Iran and will give the Iranians a $150 billion signing bonus to fund terrorism and build ballistic missiles.

So where does that leave us?

People have heard one too many times that the Republican Party, if it regains control, will turn things around.  Republicans have been so timid in opposing Obama's agenda that many have quit believing they'll be able to reverse this madness if they acquire full control.

Along comes Trump, who gives voice to these legitimate grievances instead of calling people racist, selfish or hysterical. He emphasizes the urgency of these problems, and he denounces the status quo, the establishment, Washington inertia and political correctness without an ounce of apology. People are dehydrated, and he's their Gatorade.Whether Trump could or would deliver on his promises is one thing, but the establishment's arrogant failure to acknowledge, let alone decry the horror of, the status quo is his lifeblood. If Trump is a monster, the establishment is Dr. Frankenstein, so please spare us the lectures.

I happen to prefer other candidates, and certain things about Trump make me nervous; but I appreciate that he is shaking things up, and I refuse to belittle Trump's supporters for believing he would be more effective than many of his establishment rivals. Our forefathers' precious gift of liberty to us is not self-sustaining, and if we don't quit kicking it to the curb, it'll leave us, never to return.

This is interesting, and is parallel to Australia. It is a real worry where we are heading in this country. Our politicians have a lot to answer for, but they are OK, they are there to feather their own nest – and they couldn’t care less for us mere mortals. And, if the leave politics they are millionaires and most get an overseas posting like Hockey.

Hi Werner, and thanks for your comment at -- the only problem is that I have actually deleted the post (accidentally hit "publish" rather than "preview" when still working on the first paragraph to ensure it fit the format I use. It happens now and then).

Glad you enjoy the material I cover; do spread the word if so inclined. I wish you a happy Christmas too, and hope the New Year is a safe and prosperous one for you and yours.

The "proper" Donald Trump article will be live a little later this afternoon.
