POLITICS: The Simplest Reasons for Trump's Rise to Last GOP Candidate Standing

No, Elizabeth Warren, it isn't because Trump is a xenophobic, racist, misogynist pig... or whatever else it is that you call him... whether or not they're true.

It's because people are tired of ... pay attention ... being told that they must accept SENSITIVITY TRAINING as the norm - that they must walk on eggshells and second-guess their every statement so as to avoid OFFENDING ANYONE.

And Donald Trump is the face of the wave of folks that are sick and tired of sensitivity training being the new rule.

And it's because people are tired of looking to career politicians and equating them with the same old false promises they've come to expect from career politicians since... well, forever.

While Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio and Ben Carson and Rand Paul - just for starters - stood up there and spewed statistics in debates, statistics of which the everyday uninformed American (let's just be honest here) was unsure in regard to truthfulness or accuracy, Donald Trump made blanket statements that made people feel good, and go, "YEAH!" Nobody blank-stared at him, or questioned silently whether or not the statistics he spewed in defense of his own platform were accurate or valid or legitimate. He didn't really spew any - and when people hear things on which they're shaky - like statistics - and, um, facts - they'll lean toward the guy who they feel is more relatable.

How many men have sat home and thought, "Man, that Trump just says what he means, says what he thinks, and he does it shamelessly, and without backing down! Balls of steel! I wanna be THAT GUY!"

You can shake your head, America, and wonder about those inbiciles who voted for Trump over other GOP candidates... but the fact is, whether he intended to, or not, he did it better. The majority has spoken. That may offend you, disgust you, or elicit feelings of disappointment, but OBVIOUSLY, this is a significant portion of America who like what this guy has to offer, so you're gonna have to swallow it down and deal. You can cry about it all you want, and stomp your feet, but the proof right here before us.

Face it: he's winning. Which means he's doing something right - at least in the eyes of GOP voters.
I don't believe Trump is xenophobic or a racist. He's merely against ILLEGAL immigrants coming into this country. Ya know, ILLEGALLY. So sure, folks, let's do it. Let's build a wall. Let's make some jobs happen. Why not? ... Other than that it'll take over four years to construct, and to the tune of probably a billion dollars.
I don't believe Trump is all that misogynistic compared to most men. Did he make some off-color statements toward women contenders along the way? Absolutely. The only difference between him and his male counterparts, however, was that they kept their thoughts to themselves, and they had a team of analysts and PR people advising and coaching and spoon-feeding them the whole way through. Say what you will about his choices in statements against women, and in personal attacks on people, folks, but the fact remains that he's winning in the GOP - he's the only one left without a suspended campaign, so it must not have hurt him TOO badly, eh?

Lastly, here comes a good healthy dose of good ol' Ann Coulter, from her most recent blog entry on

"A guy just won the Republican nomination for president ... spending no money, hiring no pollsters, running virtually no TV ads, and just saying what he truly believed no matter how many times people said he couldn't say that.
"It's odd... when Trump launched his campaign ... his critics hysterically denounced him by rushing to the TV to say he did NOT represent the Republican Party! ... it became resoundingly clear that large majorities of Americans agreed with Trump ...."

And I think that, right there, says it all.

More of America, more than we were being told, more than we were led to believe, are SICK AND TIRED of being told what we can and can't say.

Trump is the everyday man's embodiment of that sentiment. Even if you yourself don't like him.

God Bless America.
