The RedBlue one-sided debate over Donald Trump

The standard procedure for a debate requires pro and con views. The RedBlue America debate over Trump was a joke with two cons agreeing with each other. I guess RedBlue is in league with “fair and balanced” Fox News in striving to keep Trump out of the debates. These include Karl Rove, Jeb Bush and George Soros – all out to crush the conservative base.

The mockers call Trump bombastic, a showman, stupid, racist, etc. They want to avoid noting that Trump creates, builds and operates things of high quality and beauty. This kind of success requires a strong personality to accomplish.

Henry Ford wanted to be able to cast a V-8 engine block in one piece to develop a more powerful car within the price range of the average buyer. A one piece engine casting was essential. Ford gained a terrible reputation with his engineers who insisted it couldn’t be done. His vision and insistence overcame the doubters and mockers as they rose to the occasion and succeeded. The rest is history.

Trump hires the best architects, golf course designers, materials and equipment suppliers, contractors, operators and a skilled labor force. These include thousands of men and women with an infinite range of skills, talents and motivations – regardless of race, creed, ethnic origin and sexual urge. This is the “trickle down” mockers just can’t understand. Each of the architects, contractors, materials suppliers, installers and maintenance companies hire people suited to the tasks at hand. These jobs and skills don’t just fall out of the sky. They happen because one man has vision and determination.

Trump may or may not get the nomination – there are several fine Republican candidates that could do quite well in overcoming our plunge into totalitarianism – especially Ted Cruz and Scott Walker. The Feds run everything in their usual corrupt and inefficient way in fields they have no business in – health, education and welfare. Only fools would want to limit debate among candidates who show strong support from an informed electorate. Yes, Mable, there are informed voters – They’ve had enough of regressive “progressives” of both parties.
