This is a message from retired U.S. Army Major General Paul E Vallely, reposted with his blessing.
I received this message this evening and it struck me as being a pretty good summary as what two thirds of the country is really feeling. You may not agree with any of it or even all of it, but again, I think it is a fair assessment of what Trump backers are feeling or at least considering and using in their evaluation of what is going on. Keep an open mind – no arm twisting intend – the choice is yours – but at the very least, I think it will give you a fair idea as to what these folks are thinking and why.
I SUGGEST YOU READ IT EVEN IF YOU’RE A CLINTON FAN AND PLAN TO VOTE FOR HER !!
Millions of us Trump supporters feel this way about Donald J. Trump.
“We don’t care if the guy swears … or how many times he’s been married …
or who he voted for, or what his income tax return shows.
We want our country’s problems fixed !
Yes he’s an egomaniac, and maybe not always tactful, but we don’t care.
We know he’s not a racist, or bad to women,
or all the other things the liberal media is trying to label him with.
The country is a mess because politicians suck, the Republican Party is two faced & gutless, and illegals are everywhere and radical Muslims are openly trying to hurt this country, kill us and make the civilized world adjust to them.
We just want it all fixed !
We don’t care that Trump is crude, we don’t care that he has changed positions,
we don’t care that he fights with Megan Kelly …..
or Rosie O’Donnell ….. and so many of the elected establishment.
We don’t care that Rubio, Ryan, the Bush’s, and so many other top old and new Republicans refuse to endorse him for their own selfish reasons ….. and we know what they are.
We don’t care that he doesn’t know the name of some Muslim terrorists,
we don’t care that he tried some businesses that didn’t work out.
This country is weak ….. bankrupt ….. our enemies are making fun of us …..
we are being invaded by illegals ….. we are becoming a nation of victims …..
where every Tom, Ricardo and Hasid is a special group with special rights
to a point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in …..
AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED !
And TRUMP is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.
We’re sick of politicians ….. sick of the Democratic and Republican Party.
PLAIN AND SIMPLE – WE ARE JUST ANGRY AT:
The Iran deal,
Treatment of Israel,
Overpaid politicians with their self-serving bills and back room deals,
Degrading and losing trade deals,
Loss of jobs,
Manipulated economic numbers,
Businesses fleeing, and
the phony “Pay for Play” Clinton Foundation.
Americans are no longer going to be fooled and screwed,
and the movement is out to change the direction we’re taking.
Trump may not be a saint and he is not perfect but,
he doesn’t have lobbyist money holding him ….. and
He doesn’t have political correctness restraining him …..
===== AND =====
We know he’s raised a good family, and that says a lot about him.
All you truthfully know is that he has been very successful …
he surrounds himself with talented and intelligent people …
he has made real jobs … he’s a good negotiator … he has built a lot of things …
he’s flexible … he learns fast … and he’s also not a politician
And he says he’ll fix it.
He will fight for what he believes in and for what he says he will do.
We believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be
proven wrong or permit himself to be looked at as a failure and a liar.
Public service has become elected greed.
This may be our last and only chance to have a non-politician,
despite his flaws, try and correct the mess, at least for 4 years.
We must take the shot, because the consequences of putting
Hillary Clinton in office are frightening.
With what we have to face with a third term of Obama,
What is there to loose with a Donald J. Trump?
There is a tidal wave of Trump optimism happening, and
it’s going to overcome much of what’s happened to this country.”
