I have said it before, but I will say it again. Donald Trump is not trying to become the president of the United States. He is trying to ensure that Hillary Clinton will grab that position, with less than 50% of the vote … much less.
In the 1992 election an “Independent,” named Ross Perot, ran for president against Democrat Bill Clinton and Republican Incumbent George H. W. Bush. It is historically hard for a challenger, such as was Billy Boy at that time, to unseat a sitting president. Because Ross Perot ran and gained 18.9% of the vote (albeit not enough to win any electoral votes), Bush only won 37.5% of the vote (only 31% of the electoral votes). Clinton became president with only 43% of the popular vote, while gaining a relative landslide victory as far as the Electoral College goes (69%).
Now I do not offer any opinion about missing a second term of George Herbert Walker Bush (he said he was not a wimp), but it is important for EVERYONE to realize that the third party represented by Ross Perot was a strategy of the Democratic Party. The same strategy is taking place now (not coincidentally with another Clinton running for the White House).
To understand this, one needs to see how Donald Trump became politically active when Ross Perot ran in 1992. Trump’s Wikipedia bio says he considered running in 1988; however, by 1996 Trump was planning on being the Reform Candidate, replacing Perot. Trump left the party when Perot was again nominated, disassociating himself from the Reform party due to it lacking focus. The lack of focus was due to there no longer being a need to weaken the opposition to Bill Clinton.
Ross Perot and Donald Trump are wealthy businessmen and have no true desire to be run by the political machinery that controls all presidents. They are parts of that machinery itself, who personally and financially benefit from the wealthy manipulating politicians. Trump brags about that.
The recent news of Donald Trump publicly announcing the United States should forbid Muslims entry into our country will get him removed from being associated with the Republican party, which is the intent. Trump made such statements because there is a solid (yet politically ignorant) number of American voters who totally agree with what Trump says, even though none of what he says can ever be implemented (see how inept Congress is now, and then imagine Congress trying to agree on unconstitutional Trumpisms being enacted).
That popularity is planned on. More than motivating stay-at-home Democrats to get out and vote against Trump, Trump’s popularity will result in Republican votes moving away from whoever becomes the official Republican candidate. If enough make up the majority vote in some states, it could mean Trump actually wins some electoral votes.
With Trump running as the 21st century revival of the Reform party, he could capture 29% of the popular vote, gaining perhaps 11 electoral votes. On the other hand, the Republican candidate would probably be limited to 34% of the vote (instead of 63%), with Hillary Clinton winning a whopping 37% of the popular vote. However, once again, there would appear to be an Electoral College landslide victory for Clinton – probably around 304-312 (Republican getting 224-216), more than the 270 needed. Without Trump in the picture, with Obama and Clinton having zero popularity outside the solid Progressive movement, any Republican would win the election – possibly in a landslide (hard to do that with California, New York and Illinois always in the tank for the left).
If Hillary Clinton won 37% of the popular vote, she would get no more than 51.8 million votes. The Republican would get 47.6 million and Donald Trump around 40.6 million. A total of 140 million votes represent around 43.8% of the total population, or about 50% of the eligible voters. That means 51.8 million is less than 20% of the total voter population. For anyone to be elected the president of a nation, with roughly 19% of the populace behind that candidate, that country ceases to be majority ruled.
With the progressive left in bed with President Barack Obama since 2007, every move he has made as president has been with the intent to weaken the country and embolden its enemies. To say everything has been carefully crafted means he is not a simpleton and unaware of his “mistakes.” His resume of ineptitude being so obvious (based on most presidential history) assures that a change national direction is inevitable.
That would mean no chance for a Democratic candidate to be elected. With all of the potential of criminal activities by Hillary Clinton made public, with investigations into the legality of her actions as Secretary of State, her negativity rating makes her basically unelectable. The only chance she has comes presented to her on a silver platter by Donald Trump.
If Americans want to personally witness the complete end of the United States of America, as its ideal has stood since inception, then someone needs to wake up and see what is about to happen if they do not stop it. A Clinton Administration will lead to the continued disarming of our nation’s abilities to defend itself, internationally and internally. It means the end of Christian-based philosophy leading us. It means self-inflicted suicide. Hopefully, all those people Barack Obama said “cling to their guns and Bibles” will stay home and vote for neither Trump or Clinton; but it does not look like that is going to happen.
Because there are enough people in America who want a politician to say what Trump regularly says, there is a growing concern over the obvious threat to our national security. The Russians are arming Iran, Syria, and bombing the opposition to Assad and ISIS (Obama’s ISIL). The Iranians and North Koreans are saber rattling with the potential use of nukes. American citizens want something done, rather than the nothing that has been done over the past seven years. It is not craziness that makes one smell a dead body before opening the trunk and finding one; but the people Donald Trump plays up to are ridiculed by the press as dimwitted racists, when only a small percentage of them really fit that description.
Perhaps, after global thermonuclear war has eliminated most civilization from the planet and if what is now called North America can scrounge up 40.6 million people in that aftermath, maybe they might be all those who voted for Trump. Possibly it will be God saving the only ones who could see how bleak the future really was. If Trump survives and another election is held, getting him 100% of that vote, then he will become a truly democratic president, not an oligarchical tyrant. Since America is still great now, despite having being weakened by the progressive liberals since the 1990’s, in a future that has America destroyed by political manipulation, then Trump might actually be able to “make America great again.”
