Campaign 2016 (Why Mr. Trump Will Win)

Voters from a land of the free and a home of the brave will decide on a new president in November 2016.

What motivates Mr. Trump's voters?

Americans know they can agree to disagree. Their national elections are such times.

Too much damage has already been done to America's freedoms at home and by their out-of-control national debt. The debt is a "hole" they are already in and sinking deeper. They have no effective border. They have no effective immigration policy. Tax reform left to their politically correct establishment has gone nowhere. Their Affordable Care Act (more commonly referred to as "Obamacare") was rushed through and became law based on the lie that it was not a tax, and was only approved by their Supreme Court because it IS a tax.

In two past national elections Americans confused oratory for competence, and look what it got them.

So far Mr. Trump has proven himself smarter than 16 of those politically correct, well financed "do nothing" politicians. Now two are left. Both of whom have been around long enough to have driven the needed changes, but they didn't. One of those remaining politicians is in it for herself, and the other wants to give everything to everybody for their votes (which is a lot of what has gotten America into the situation it finds itself in now.)

Their current President B. H. Obama promised he would make the most needed changes, but didn't make them even when his party of Democrats controlled the action portions of their government.

Americans still want those promised changes, not a weakened, over- stretched military, not porous borders, not a tax system ripe with loopholes, not an education system that is heading them to third world status, not party divisiveness, not sectionalism, not cronyism, not an imbalanced Supreme Court, not "government for us, not them," and all the rest of what would stay broken, not fixed.

America's government is so big, so bloated, so disfunctional with power withdrawn from the people at their state and local levels, and "do it our way or you won't get the needed federal funds!" governance, that enough of them are fed up and determined to have a government that is once again a "government of the people, by the people, and for the people" before it perishes.

Change doesn't happen by doing the same things the same way, nor by bribing voters with gilded promises that can't be kept without bankrupting America and leaving it weakened and too vulnerable.

America's leadership in the world has been diminished to the point where it increasingly relies more on force rather than the merits of its ideals.

"Penny wise and pound foolish" characterizes its politicians' approach to fiscal responsibility.

Presidential perks have been given precedence over presidential responsibilities.

A previous maverick presidential candidate lost his party's presidential bid because the lie was spread that "if you vote for him, you are wasting your vote!"

The current lie being spread is "if you vote for him, he will get you into World War III!"

It is the downward spiral Americans need to get out of, and political rhetoric, no matter how eloquently voiced, is not going to do the needed job.

Americans need a tidal change at home and calm seas abroad while effectively dealing with their role in the world economy, if their form of government, and free enterprise is to endure.

Lobbyists and special interests including banks "too big to fail" and corporations "too rich to lose control" are America's bloodsuckers that are sapping American vitality.

Candidate "Bernie" proposes his revolutionary socialism. Mrs. Clinton proposes more of the same with some social tinkering.

Mr. Trump's voters don't want to throw out their republican form of government, nor do they want to just keep stumbling ahead.

They want progress at almost any cost, before it's too late to stop the downward rush. They want to regain control of what needs to be saved from their nation's years of sacrifice.

That can be enough for Mr. Trump to win.

Once again what is at stake is so important that giving serious thought to our votes is essential. The power we entrust to just one person is so staggering, and the direction and unifying of the country is so important, that our wisest decision is essential. We need a leader who is intelligent, fair, empathetic, and concerned about national unity; one who will dedicate themself to national service at the expense of personal interests and bias; one who places nation above party, and national security above all else. May God bless us the wisdom to choose such a leader.

I have to say that Bernie may be sick of hearing about Hillary's emails, but I'm sick of the whole political scene. Personally, I've reached the point that I don't like any of them. I wish Congress would pass a law that the candidates have the two months preceding the primary election to do their politikin'. I propose that they would be required to first lay out and publish their plans, then each party have its own debates. Next the primaries followed by a debate between the two parties' candidates, and no more than a month later, the general election. In all, the whole shootin' match would take no more than four months. We would still be fresh instead of so shopworn that we really don't give a darn about who we elect!

OK, I've blown off steam. I hear what you just said about giving serious thought to our votes, and I agree. But by the time all the dirty linen is aired on everyone, how can we choose the best candidate? Do we choose by morals, by experience, or someone totally out of the loop that naive people think can't be bought?

MixBejabbers - See the next-to-the-last sentence of my Comment just prior to yours, then let's find and vote for the candidate who comes the closest to those criteria.

I will, how about you?

Unbridled Capitalism and Tax Evasion is causing the great debt and poverty in our nation and the world. The fact that We The People is now ready to vote in a Great Capitalist to lead the world economy don't make sense. Why would working class and middle class do that, do they know not what they do?

junko - What the working class and the middle classes know is what the politicians and insiders DIDN'T do in a country that is stagnating as a result. We can only bet just so long and often on a losing horse, before we bet on a new one. Mr. Trump may be ruthless, but disillusioned and disappointed voters can be, too.

Perspycacious,the working and middle class know that the Republican Teaparty is responsible for the obstruction and Governmentlessness on Capitol Hill since the 2010 midterm elections. They have witnessed the effect of the country being run by Capitalist rather than law makers. Those that know, knows Capitalism was made in America and the makers of Capitalism will change the rules before allowing The United States to go bankrupt. Our dollar is backed by the might of the United States, nothing else. The world has went Uber over Capitalism and have a financial state in the American economy so fear not for the economy but fear for our society.

junko - Not to belabor the point, but it needs reminding that even when the Democrat lawmakers held control of the Exective and the Legislative branches of power, our country's needed changes which the Democrats had promised were not made. Perhaps that is why you chose to start the blame game at the 2010 midterm elections, by which point American voters were already disenchanted with the politicians in Washington, DC and started throwing a bunch of them out and putting Republicans in their places. The power of the presidential veto has also kept approved legislatin since then from being enacted, and there is a solution for that, too.

Perspycacious, I didn't seek to play the blame game or any type game with you. I am glad to dialog with you on our different points of view and only seek to speak the truth as I know it. I have no hopes of changing or disagreeing with your points of view. In fact I will agree with you, The President and the Democrats had two years to push through Economic Stimulus money to save the U S Auto Industry and American jobs. The Democrats also pushed through Financial and Health Care Reforms to control uncontrolled capitalism in health care and finance. The voters were disenchanted by the eight years of Republican control but were still hopeful after two years of Democratic control. Would you agree?

junko - I am certain Americans are still hopeful and determined to turn that hope into results in November.

Serious voters such as you and I will cast votes that reflect their consciences, and that is as it must be to solve the current problems of jobs, taxes, affordable health care, morale in our military, control of the military/industrial complex, decaying infrastructure, Guantanamo, failing education, America's standing in the world, Syria, ISIS, Iran, Libya, the China Sea, North Korea, Refugges ,the ballooning National Debt, higher education, lobbyists, illegal immigration, gangs, drugs, public safety, term limits, Veterans benefits, equal justice for all,.... and all the rest.

No one person is going to do it alone, but leadership is required to get it done, and proven, effective leadership in the past, is a reasonable test of what a chosen national leader can provide in the future.

Can that person obey this country's laws? Can they protect the national security by their example? Can they direct compromise and unify the country? Can they be a worthy example for our nation's children? Can they mourn with those who mourn and comfort those in need of comfort? Can they be a peacemaker? Can they regard the interests of the American people above the interests of any political party and any other "special interests" and be above reproach?

If so, vote for that one and I will too.

Perspycacious When I was a child I had a job my parents had a job and anybody who wanted a job could find a job. At that time drug users hide from society. Gun violence...the term wasn't used. Your long list of problems the next President must solve can easily be cut in half by job creation in America. Job creation in Asia don't help working and middle class Americans ,not to mention the underclass Americans When third world countries take first world jobs play stations is for the idle Americans and some act up. After I hear it all I will vote for American Job Creation and foreigns affair understanding.

unko - Hear it all, and then vote is sound advice we can all follow.

That will give us time to properly evaluate the issues that have already been raised, the new issues that will be raised (such as Trump University, Hillary's FBI investigation, the two candidates choices for their vice presidents, their views on Social Security, and the other issues listed in our previous comments.)

Perhaps then we can all be informed voters seeking to make the right choice, regardless of "straight party tickets" and voting for a female because she is a female, or voting for an outsider because we are too tired of what insiders get us, etc.

Three cheers for "hear it all" voters!

Perspycacious, Iron sharpens iron and you can save a lot of stress if you hear but don't react to every thing they think you should know. Capitalism sales everything including news. The politics of the last 8 years has been crisis driven because there was no work going on on Capitol Hill. A few million people's income depend on 24/7 news served to our order and taste. We will have a hell of a lot more to hear before November. We learn through our ears and eyes not mouth. I am glad we can agree, thats one in a row, three more cheers.

Wouldn't it make sense to remove the bipartisan system and just work together in order to strengthen what we have?

The only way is to vote out the bipartisan system but we can't agree on who to vote for and why.

aviannovice - While making sense from the fact that the present "gridlock" derives from two opposing views of what is good for America, the two party system is solidly entrenched. Independents need to rally together for a third party that forces the other two to compromise in the best interests of ALL the people.

Term limits are important, too, and that would take a constitutional convention the current Congresses would avoid.

Add to all this the current struggle against terrorism and nothing is likely to happen to the two party system at this critical time

Poor Candidate Trump! He may not be poor, but he's turning out to be a poor candidate who only looks good in comparison with smooth, polished, devious Hillary. Donald appears too proud to take and follow through on sound advice without making it look as if it is painful to him to do so.

Learn, Donald, learn! The greatest prize we Americans can give is within reach....and receding.

Very good article. There is a lot of truth in it.

Thank you

norlawrence - From the open letter I wrote here to Mr. Trump, my hope is that his campaign manager(s) can find ways, if he is, to show him more approachable, empathetic, considerate, a family man capable of pondering and accepting discernibly good advice, etc.

I feel we need deliberated immigration reform, tax reform, revitalizing our military, self-reliance, a healthier work atmosphere and more jobs of significance, cost containment in health care, a proactive foreign policy, veterans policies that live up to our promises to them, an ypgrade in educational excellence, and ethical government and justice that respects each individual.

Demonstrate sincere policies directed to the achievement of sound results on those scores, and whoever I believe will have my vote.

You are so awake to what is going on, and it is refreshing. If we were going to vote today, I believe Trump would win...but, that could change real fast, let's hope it doesn't.

colorfulone - Trump's dealings with Russian oligarchs and Putin could "queer the brew." He must release his tax returns and knew that going into the campaign. Surely his team questioned Mike Pence as to "Do you have anything to hide?" Now Trump must satisfy voters that he himself doesn't have anything to hide.
