Why Trump?

When Donald J. Trump established himself in the president’s office in January 2017, one of the first things he did was hang a portrait of President Andrew Jackson in the Oval Office. That was a signal.

Andrew Jackson was an irascible war hero known for his blunt manner, explosive temper, and inclined to physical violence. He was elected President in 1828, his second attempt, as a reformer who promised to clean out the “deep state” corruption of his day.

Despite much howling and vicious opposition from the deep state of his time, Andrew Jackson persevered, fixed it…and was re-elected in 1832. Andrew Jackson was a disruptor.

Action leads to reaction. In American history, we have had a history of disruptors. The Deep State corruption we face today though is the most serious our nation has ever confronted, as it is both broad and many layers deep, rife with grift and treason using tools of subversion never envisioned by our Founders…tools like electronic media, for example.

Moreover, unlike Jackson’s time, election fraud techniques have become so sophisticated and multi-layered that the rise of a permanently entrenched uni-party sustained by fraudulent elections is a very near probability. 2024’s election may indeed be our nation’s last, leaving us only free to resign ourselves to living in a third-world kleptocracy.

I believe the only way to save our country is to restore accountability…full accountability…to government. Deep Staters know this and know that they will risk losing everything if they allow a Republican disrupter to win. Thus, they will destroy any Republican candidate who poses a threat, no matter who that candidate is.

So, who, exactly, within the Republican Party would /could rise to the challenge of taking on this Deep State?

To reform and revitalize our government, we need a disruptor, and Trump in my opinion is the only one who volunteered for and can do the job. Like Andrew Jackson before him, only Donald Trump has the courage and personality to challenge, rather than work with, the system.

This is not to obviate his negatives, of which he has many, but we already know that they come with the package. Even Winston Churchill, Europe’s savior in WWII, came with incredible personal baggage. But he persevered and prevailed.

A re-elected Donald Trump will be limited to one term, so he will be free to act without an eye to his political future.
The current crop of Republicans have some excellent candidates vying for that position. Personally, I would be thrilled to have a President of the caliber of a Tim Scott, Ron DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy… in normal times but this is not normal times and we should know by now that the Progressive Deep State will do everything it can to destroy them.

Let’s first allow President Trump to prepare the ground upon which the Good Men and Good Women of our country are unleashed to restore our country to its former greatness.
