Why Donald Trump Will Be Our Next POTUS

I may or may not vote for him, and I'm not gonna try to convince you that you should or shouldn't. That said, here's why you probably will. See, with the "Republic" that America is, we elect the politicians to BE "us" in governmental matters. If we feel they are NOT 'being us,' we either 'impeach them' (or however else you phrase 'fire them') or 'vote for someone else instead next time.' Donald Trump is 'who we wish we were.'

I suppose that is as good an understanding of it as anything. Most people would love to just tell off those who annoy us and state our views confidently and without worrying about the PC police. We want to feel confident and powerful and free to make our own decisions.

True, and people are falling for his act. Or at least that's what I believe- that it's all an act and people tend to fall for it. People claim to do this and that, winning the vote of the people, and then don't go through with it.

It IS true, but it's not "an act" (at least not the way I think you mean it ... a way to 'fool people into thinking he's actually one way when he's really another'). The reason why Presidents 'make promises they don't follow-through on'? Presidents are not LAW-MAKERS or EMPERORS or CZARS or KINGS or MONARCHS. No matter WHAT he says he'll make the country do, the ONLY thing he can do is suggest the things people should do to make things happen one way or the other.

@mythociate I don't think it is an act either, I really think this is the way he is. It sounds like a lot of blubber but it really is not much different than any of the others wanting to become the President. Even as the President he can't make a lot of things happen if he is overruled by Congress. By the way I see you are in Oklahoma City, I used to live in Midwest City, OK.
