Donald Trump May Be The Savior Our Political System Needs
On August 9, 2015, three days after the first Republican primary debate, while there were 17 candidates vying for the presidency, I accurately predicted that the best thing which has happened to the presidential elections this time around is Donald Trump.
GOP Leaders didn't think so; as it is still obvious, many Republicans do not think Donald Trump is a good thing for the Republican Party, let alone to be the best thing which has happened to the presidential elections.
Regardless one's opinion about Trump, I could see then beyond the roughness of candidate Trump, a change element. His language has not changed much; his rationale has not evolved but he remains the most relevant change element in the elections process.
Prior to Mr. Trump, anyone could easily predict who would become the nominee; it was usually the candidate who could raise the most amount of money; translation, it was the candidate with the most "mudsling" power. Donald Trump has changed all that.
Donald Trump doesn't need to win the general elections; he has already set the country on a path to reform the elections process. He has singlehandedly mobilized a sector of the country which has given up on voting altogether; he has turned political punditry upside down; he has defied the odds and despite all his flaws he has the support of all those who have been disenfranchised, abandoned by their parties. Mr. Trump could indeed be the savior our political systems need.
