At this writing a few of my fellow conservative colleagues, Rand Paul is one, are thinking one thought. It's a scary thought - indeed frightening. First a background fact.
DONALD TRUMP IS NOT A REPUBLICAN - DONALD TRUMP IS A DEMOCRAT!
No matter what opportunistic swing he has made to present himself as a Republican, his record of voting, support for candidates - Especially Hillary Clinton - in the past, he is a bonafied died-in-the-wool Democrat.
Many of his supporters if not all of them seem not to care. He's saying what they want to hear, from having Mexico build a wall (not going to happen), to stopping ALL Muslims from entering the US. The last point of fact is a record of the Democratic Party - WWII Internment/Exclusion anyone?
However what Trump has promised over the years doesn't measure up to what he ultimately delivered. In other words he's a bunch of hot air saying things that the uniformed take as fact. It's no doubt that we have a dumbed down electorate. I know this from talking with Trump supporters here in Florida. When asked for specifics of his foreign policy (he has none), they sputter, get angry and rip about talking about he's the one to beat Hillary.
Generally all his support comes as not a vote for him personally, but as a "No Hillary" vote. People think because of his threats, bragging, veiled promises, he's a shew-in to beat Hillary in November.
But what if?
I have a theory and it's based on over ten years of blogging about politics and observing the game playing that takes place. I'm not a conspiracy theorist either. I'm not wearing a tin-foil hat either. But I have a theory.
WHAT IS TRUMP IS A TROJAN HORSE? WHAT IF TRUMP IS RUNNING IN ORDER TO GET THE NOMINATION THAT HE KNOWS WILL LOSE TO HIS FRIEND HILLARY CLINTON?
Think about it. If Trump became president he would have to relinquish all interest in his building ventures because of the conflict of interest it would create. Remember Dick Cheney had to do the same with Halliburton when he signed on to be Vice President. Does anyone really think that Donald Trump would essentially give up control of his financial interests to play President for 4 or 8 years? Does anyone really believe that at all?
I don't and neither do some of the more in-the-know people that I converse with.
Again, it's just a hunch. If you need a bit convincing look at his positions in 1999 vs. 1998.
