PIGS ARE NOW FLYING! How could Trump NOT win Iowa?

HOW COULD TRUMP NOT HAVE WON IOWA?

Seriously?



For those of us who’ve had our heads stuck in the sand for decades, herein lies the risk of CARING AGAIN!

My visceral reaction to Trump coming in 2nd in the Iowa Caucus calls for both a DIRT FIT and a description of my state-change to something like “insanely and profoundly stumped-stupid.”

I just don’t get it.  And I’m not the only one!


Mind you, I don’t expect everything to go predictably in politics, which is an insane and fickle forum by design, in my opinion. But what more glorious evidence of insanity than to witness BAZILLIONS of fervent supporters first show up to stand in the snow for hours, overflow the venue by thousands, videotape ad nauseum, chant, cheer, flop signs around, scream out their love and hope, broadcast selfies, wait even LONGER to rub elbows with Donald Trump – their hero – no doubt brag about seeing the man himself and being part of the “movement”… only to march to town to cross the finish line and scribble the name of … TRUMP’S CURRENT POLITICAL ARCH-NEMESIS?

Seriously?

Amid multiple Cruz dishonesty and denial scandals Iowa? Amid concealed Cruz citizenship Iowa? Amid concealed Cruz financial dealings Iowa? And amid VERY well concealed Cruz sincerity Iowa?

Does Iowa truly think politics-as-usual and relative inexperience combined with Cruz’ “snot-itude”, scripted and practiced posturing and pandering can trudge us through another 4 years without disrupting a relatively staid existence?


Yep. There was definite evidence of insanity in IOWA last night.

(And I don’t just mean that ridiculous coin toss!)

So Iowa, it’s time to take a peek at you for the moment.

You have just become a mystery.

I don’t understand you, Iowans, and you were THE point persons in the new-found political hope of the noisy majority.

Who ARE you and what did you do with all those Trump supporters whose numbers CLEARLY dwarfed the competition?

Why don’t you see what I and millions of other Americans see?

Or if you do, why didn’t it translate into DELEGATES via simple math!?

Is there a “glitch” in this caucus system?  Is it too antiquated to work accurately?

Or did a huge chunk of people who stood for hours in the snow many times suddenly decide they couldn’t take an hour to follow through and write a name on a piece of paper?


Is it possible that “we” could be so locked down and out of touch with the
EXTREME, DANGEROUS, DESPERATE
CHALLENGES WE FACE?

Is America STILL willing to risk life as we know it on politics as usual?


out-of-businessI refuse to believe it.  I think Iowa is some random aberration.

Like Trump, I believe that OVERALL if the truth is delivered to voters in an understandable way they can’t HELP but see what we need to do.

We need to see our DESPERATE NEED for IMMEDIATE, AGGRESSIVE and LASER-FOCUSED control of refugees and illegal immigrants, along with the SWIFT, COMPLETE and TOTAL annihilation of ISIS from the planet –  to protect life as we have come to know it, and deter others from even THINKING about trying it again.

We need to see the country’s DESPERATE NEED for a leader who is INCOMPARABLY FUNCTIONAL, TIRELESS, DAUNTINGLY AGGRESSIVE, UNCOMPROMISING, HONORABLE and TRUSTWORTHY.

We need to see our DESPERATE NEED for a leader who is likely so many steps ahead of us strategically in VISION, PLANNING, NEGOTIATION and LEADERSHIP that despite being a great communicator he may have no “security-minded” way to impart to us each tiny DETAIL… and so what?  Why do we need the details to pick a leader?  It’s not like we’re remotely qualified to judge the potential outcome of a detailed plan, nor do we want the details to fall into the wrong hands and therefore NOT WORK!!  Shall we insist on details simply as fodder for the over-populated, under-skilled mainstream media hacks?

It’s also surely impossible for Trump to explain down to mind-numbing minutia WHY and HOW his unpredictable, often-rigid, foundation-laying and reputation building will WORK TO KEEP SAFE AND MAKE US PROSPEROUS. In world politics – as in business – often perception is everything.

I believe the details of HOW things will get fixed are just not our business.

We need to PICK THE RIGHT CANDIDATE, then STAY IN OUR LANE AND OUT OF THE WAY.

I want a LEADER, not a FOLLOWER, and not a MEDIA LAPDOG or a POLITICALLY-CORRECT GROVELER.

Leaders lead, and that’s what the noisy majority will be electing Donald J. Trump to do. I hope.



Judging from that caucus and the reported chaotic voting abomination,
Iowa may be the softest target yet.


 


 

Lastly, consider the miraculous, long-shot odds of our being lucky enough to have a person of his caliber, wherewithal, business acumen, honor, energy and options VOLUNTARILY CHOOSE TO REPRESENT OUR INTERESTS IN THE WORLD FOR FREE.  

In fact, not only for FREE but he is actually PAYING FOR THE PRIVILEGE TO SERVE by self-funding his campaign.


 

YEP.  I KNOW WE’VE WON THE LOTTERY ALREADY.

 


Once everyone else in the country does also, then and only then will I pull my nose out of the dirt about the “Iowa Incident”.

Now don’t screw it up again, America! 😉

  1. I love watching the news and hearing “Donald Trump is rude, crude, etc.” He is saying the very same things hard working Americans are saying at home watching TV. Without Mr. Trump we would not be talking about our YUUGE Immigration problem. Mr. Trump is talking BUSINESS. Period. That’s it. None of these things are personal, they’re KILLING US and must be stopped. You can’t please everyone all the time. I don’t know about you but I am given a speeding ticket if I drive too fast. You can’t PICK AND CHOOSE WHICH LAWS YOU WANT TO HONOR. How the US can justify not guarding our borders is sickening. We want CONTROL! This Country SHOULD be ran like a business. It takes in money in exchange for services…what’s that? A BUSINESS. We desperately need a strong business man who can negotiate. Mr. Trump is the best one I know!

    • I’ve actually experienced favoritism wen I speed and get pulled over, and I’ve thought at the time… “MAN, THIS IS JUST SO UNFAIR TO PEOPLE WHO AREN’T GIVEN THAT BREAK.” And that’s how unfair it’s been to all of us political outsiders not benefiting from the good ‘ol boy network in many ways, especially legally.

      We totally DO WANT CONTROL, as it should be in D E M O C R A C Y. Our forefathers are spinning in their graves as to how this system has been corrupted, and they’re applauding Trump’s freaking out the powers that be. Thanks for the comments! -Alexx
