    I think Donald Trump is.  The question is,  do swing voters feel comfortable with the truth?  The main stream media is trying to say that if a candidate states that people need to stop breaking the law can come here legally they are racist.   Will people fallfor media mamanipulation as they did in the last two elections or will they say enough is enough?

    As of now, there is no doubt in my mind that Donald Trump and/or Dr. Ben Carson are the most viable candidates for president in 2016. In fact, a Trump/Carson ticket just might be an amazing pairing for this country’s revival. Jeb Bush --- no way! He would pursue his father and brothers type of leadership, which started the decline of our country in numerous areas.   
    The wise person will research all candidates before casting their vote. Obama is a prime example of what can happen when one fails to do so and then cast their vote out of loyalty to party affiliation, or for any other inept reason. It is time that we “stop” nepotism from occupying the White House, Congress and the House of Representatives. Let us make those folks in DC remember that “we the people,” are their bosses and NOT the special interest and lobbyist who pay for their favors. 

    It is also time to demand term limits be set for Congress, the House of Representatives and the Supreme Court Justices. None of these positions were meant to be, or should be lifetime careers. In fact, this is why our they have become so corrupt and unfazed by the peoples discontent with them ex; the lack of border security and the foreign invasion we suffer because of it.

    Here's some food for thought; “I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” ~James Madison, speech, Virginia Convention, 1788

    Sorry not to answer your question, but the fact that two people have said Donald Trump so far says a few things:
    1. Publicity is everything in politics. The news has not stopped talking about Donald Trump for some odd reason and now the news has convinced the world that Trump is a viable candidate when there are serious candidates out there.
    2. Republican voters have no frame of reference. Donald Trump is a celebrity who has never held a public office in his life. Back in the 80s and 90s, the guy was a complete joke and everyone made fun of him. If anyone had said he was going to run for president one day, we all would have laughed.
    3. The Republican leadership is not taking this election seriously.
    4. If Trump is nominated by his party, then we have basically elected "President Comacho" from Idiocracy. He's one step up from Comacho anyway. I suppose Hulk Hogan or Kim Kardashian will be candidates one day.

    I honestly haven't heard a compelling reason from the big money Super PAC donors to the Washington beltway, or even from JEB himself why he's running.  He's a middle right moderate candidate and we have that representation with Kasich, with Christie or even with Rubio.  As Trump has pointed out, he seems very reluctant in his candidacy.  Stating the he has to lose the primary to win the general show how he's completely detached from his base, especially the conservative base.   He speaks more to the illegal immigrant dreamer than he does directly to the American public.

    Trump is talking directly to Americans about making America great, about bring back jobs, about growing the economy by sensible immigration enforcement and America friendly trade deals.  He really needs to get on the ball however and start fleshing out a comprehensive domestic and foreign policy program.  As the field narrows, he's going to get heavier competition.  You can see my hub for my point on this: … nald-Trump
