I Really Wish I Could Support Trump

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I really want to like Donald Trump. I really wish I could support The Donald, but if you’ve read anything I’ve written about him you’ll understand I just can’t – but I want to.

Right now he is saying what every conservative is thinking. We on the right have been craving a candidate who will take it to the left – no backing down – no compromise. And Trump is filling the bill – like Newt Gingrich on steroids.

Many would say – yeah well – it’s all an act. He knows his audience and he’s playing right to them – telling them what they want to hear. While I agree that he is a showman and he is playing to the audience, this is no act.

What we see is who he is. He’s rich and he’s powerful and he relishes any opportunity to say so. And there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s about time we heard from someone who is not ashamed of their wealth, especially because he earned it.

The fact is I do on some level, really enjoy Trump. I’ve heard he is a nice guy, but he’s also an arrogant loud mouth. Yet you can’t help but smile when he’s verbally beating down the left. We can’t help but react with a, “Yeah – go get um!” And really, there’s nothing wrong with that, to a point. read more
