WASHINGTON, July 27, 2015 — Donald Trump is telling the truth and he is telling it like it is.
Trump took on notorious Mexican drug kingpin “El Chapo” Guzman, prompting a harsh response from the cartel leader, but other statements by Trump have drawn the ire of an even more formidable foe: the left wing media.
Trump is a fighter and is not easily intimidated. He takes on all comers and has no qualms about standing by his position, no matter how politically incorrect it may be.
Trump’s strength and honesty are resonating with conservatives and some independents. Conservatives are tired of watching changes for the worse happening all around with no power to influence them. They are tired of limp leaders who refuse to stand up and fight.
The Republican Congress has failed conservatives. It has failed to defend and preserve the rights and freedoms of Americans or to ensure adherence to our revered Constitution. Republican members of Congress foolishly think that compromising with the enemy is an acceptable option, not realizing that the enemy is out to destroy them and the conservative way of life.
Conservatives need leaders who are willing to stand up and protect American values. America needs leaders who will step up the plate and hit a home-run for “we the people.” America needs a hero, a champion who will stand up for the values and traditions that made this country great, not someone who apologizes to the world for American exceptionalism.
Donald Trump is not afraid of anyone. He will stand toe-to-toe with progressives and liberals, and will even call out traitors inside his own party.
Other candidates should understand that it is dangerous to attack Trump. To belittle him or suggest he is not a legitimate candidate will only backfire. The other candidates should take a lesson from Trump and note the issues he is talking about.
Trump is positioning himself as a true conservative by espousing and practicing true conservative values. Perhaps it is time to revive the proud radicals on the right, those Radical Republicans of the days of President Abraham Lincoln.
As presidential candidates, Romney was far too nice, while McCain was too brash, far too cocky and overconfident. More importantly, neither one of them was a true conservative. That is why they lost. They deliberately neglected the conservative core of the Republican Party and instead focused on winning over independents and the undecided. Without a true candidate, many conservatives stayed home.
Trump knows that it takes a radical to defeat a radical. Trump is feisty, and he is prepared to face anyone on any topic. He is not a moderate, or a Republican-lite. He is not a RINO or a false statesman, making promises to win elections but then reversing position once in office.
Voters are tired of political deception. Republicans want a real leader, a real conservative, to take over the GOP helm.
Is it any wonder that a businessman and non-politician is so popular among conservatives?
The other GOP candidates might do well to stop dismissing Trump and start listening to him. They might just learn something.
