Donald Trump: the billionaire underdog/scapegoat
Trump: the billionaire underdog/scapegoat
I feel very fortunate to be living during an era when one of the top business persons in the United States of American has recently dedicated his life, his reputation, even his massive business interests, to stand up to the most powerful political institution on earth, "The Republican Party of the United States of America."
It appears that the G.O.P. (I am speaking about the Republican Party leadership of course) do not know yet that the only method that could be used to bring down Mr. Trump would be to hire someone to kill him. But, of course, they cannot do that, because we live in a highly civilized society, at a time in history, where killing one's enemies, political or otherwise, just to get them out of the way, is not allowed. We live in the United States of America, not in some "Hell Hole of a place, in the middle of nowhere, where "anything goes" is the Law of the Land.""
So, what are the G.O.P. leaders going to do about "their problem" of containing Mr. Trump? " Do Nothing" is the correct answer I am looking for. They cannot contain him! Why? Because we, all, live in this free country called the United States of America where everybody, or anybody, has a right to run for the office of the President of the United States of America, that is, if they are qualified (as required by our Constitution, of course), and if they can come up with enough money to run a viable campaign.
By the way, some of you are asking me the question, "Who are you?" "What rights do you have to be asking questions and sticking your nose into this mess?" "You ain't nobody!" Maybe I am nobody, "As the great American poet, Emily Dickenson, wrote in one of her poems before she died in Amherst, Massachusetts, in1886." But I do know this, "I am an American citizen, born and raised, who served in this great country's Armed Services for twenty years, earning not one, but two, Navy-Marine Corps Medals for outstanding work that I did for my country." I have earned a right to have my say on this issue, and I have a right to take my position on this issue, and I consider my position a sound position.
Now having said the above, I have a fair amount of education, thanks be to God, which helps me to be rational, ethical and fair as I think through this mess ( I am sorry, as I think through this serious situation). I started out in life by attending a little one-room schoolhouse called Fitzgerald School (it was like a little Amish school house). From there I went to a three-roomed schoolhouse called Thompson Station School. From there I went to a high school called Natchez High School where I graduated in 1965. Later on I went to Oakland University where I graduated in 1975. Then I went on to Michigan State University (the College of Human Medicine) where I graduated in 1981. Later on I studied at George Washington University (the College of Medicine and the Health Sciences), graduating summa cum laude, with a 3.8 G.P.A., in 1988. I needed to know theology to better understand Japanese Nature Farming methodologies, and to do research in a new farming methodology that I founded, called "Mamushi Nature Farming." Therefore, I attended graduate school at the Vanderbilt University (the Divinity School) and graduated from there in 2004. I am still studying, by the way. I believe in continuing education.
Now getting back to Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump has a right to run for office of President of the United States of America. This is a given. He's a law-abiding citizen and he is "upright," so, he had a right to run.
Next, if the G.O.P. hound him, they are only digging a grave for the ones who are hounding him. It would be best just to leave Mr. Trump alone and let the situation run its course. They, Mr. Trump's enemies, can't win this one!
Having barred Mr. Trump from the RedState gathering in Atlanta (this August, 2015) only caused the situation to worsen. My predictions are, "Mr. Trump's support will grow." He is obviously, now, an underdog and a scapegoat, since the G.O.P. has intensified their attacks upon him.
Okay, there you have it. I have had my say. No one has to agree with me. "I am nobody, remember."
As my dear friend who has gone to her grave said, in her poem (this was eons before I was born), "I'm nobody! Who are you? Are you nobody, too? Then there's a pair of us--don't tell! They'd banish--you know!"
