The Trump Surge: It's All about Security

Prediction:  Tough-talking Donald Trump will crush the intelligence-leaking, left-wing ideologue Hillary Clinton, for Americans are disgusted with the bureaucracy's frontal assault on the economy and the nation's territorial borders. 

Track Record

Trump has a track record of relentless business triumphs for two generations, values a merit-based society, and has proven fearless in his defense of America.  He refuses to accede to the Republican old-guard approach, creating an entirely new playbook for those willing to stray boldly from the last fifty years of establishment-sanctioned protocols.

Clearly, a plurality of conservative, independent, and moderate Republican voters are not excited about the prospect of nominating another first-term senator with little track record of success outside the political arena. 

Consequently, can Americans trust Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio – two individuals who were willing to sell out the American economy to foreign and special-interest lobbies by way of their support for TPP?

Can Americans trust a man who sold out American culture to these same lobbies by way of his captaincy of the Gang of Eight?   

Will even those in the Democratic Party be able to side with Bernie Sanders, a self-professed socialist, to advance American progress?  Is someone who casually sold out American safety by negligently and/or criminally providing intelligence to foreign adverse agents, as Hillary Clinton did, a viable competitor against a man who emphasizes his building of a border wall so that some semblance of American sovereignty can be retained?

Americans sagely no longer trust political insider candidates, who have routinely sold out American culture, progress, and safety, and the economy, to special-interest lobbies after raising the debt ceiling in an unlimited fashion and capitulating to the invasion of millions of foreign nationals.   

Liberal Support

On the home front, the legitimate, legal population can now be fairly characterized as chronically underemployedUrban protests are on the rise, while criminal foreigners commit felonies and accept American taxpayer bounty like medical care and free schooling at astonishing rates.  It is difficult to envision a casual nighttime stroll through any urban downtown in America where a natural-born citizen could feel remotely protected or safe.

Many moderate to liberal-leaning women and young professionals, who may typically vote Democrat, will understandably give up their previously sacrosanct social and economic positions for the sake of a more secure America.  Few Americans fail to recognize the escalating and rampant crime the Obama administration continues to exacerbate and ignore by way of its open border policies. 

Pew polls consistently show that women prefer Democratic lynchpin  social net policies, as they vote time and again for the government to parent the ever-increasing needy population.  Ironically, in 2016, personal safety may very well, perhaps for the first time in decades, loom large as the ultimate nanny-state issue for the liberal-female wing. 

Many Americans, across all walks of life, truly scared about their future prospects, are fueling the bump in Trump's polling numbers.  His blunt speech is a surrogate for action to protect Americans.  By willingly writing off hugely profitable business relationships  with companies as diverse as ESPN, NASCAR, Macy's, and NBC, while simultaneously eschewing large-dollar donations, Trump has been able to underscore his message of making America great again and putting the interest of Americans first. 

Nuclear Arms Buildup

Internationally, totalitarian Islam is on the march in the Middle East and the Mediterranean, and it extends even to African nations.  The European Union is on the brink of economic collapse.  While frightening nuclear arms resolves are pursued by the most extreme rogue nations on Earth, via North Korea and Iran, Obama actually has increased these same nations' international clout by playing up to simplistic American appeasers.

Russia continues to aggressively extend its ever-growing territorial aims, absent any express or implied recourse from America.  China, meanwhile, is  successfully securing new satellites of influence in Central America and the Pacific Rim.  The American Emperor, along with the entirety of the American liberal elite, merely fiddles as international boundaries collapse.

Obama's administration is equally ignorant concerning both Chinese and Russian elite, who increasingly make tactical advances by way of highly trained cadres of military specialists.

America is now truly in a bind.  Turbulent times, witnessed by saber-rattling in Turkey and Saudi Arabia, require America's republic to follow Russia's and China's lead by selecting high-capacity and politically engaged leaders to prepare for global conflict. 

Trump, for his part, lacks the necessary military experience in the geopolitical arena to be blindly trusted to execute correct strategies to protect American interests.  However, when one compares the equally inexperienced junior senators vying for the GOP nomination, Trump appears to be the most rational choice.  The language of international development is not foreign to Trump, and, to be fair, in command-and-control economies, big business and government are synonymous. 

Could America do worse by electing a leader who would ignore necessary global strategic planning?  Among the frontrunners, only Trump has a successful background concerning the hiring of excellent and experienced professionals relative to specific areas of expertise. 

Traditional Leadership

In hindsight, there was clearly room in the GOP primary for a fresh candidate, who could project strength while dominating issues of military prowess and border enforcement. 

By summer 2015, there was no candidate, except Trump, who had even begun to galvanize the base.  But even at this late date, GOP leadership and financiers seem reluctant to put their personal economic interests on hold.  Moreover, Trump identifies with Americans who recognize the realpolitik black hole that threatens their homeland.  Traditional Americans want to vote for a high-energy candidate whose campaign reaffirms the Republican Party as the protector of security and the American way of life.

The political insiders' failure to consolidate behind a solid closed-border candidate led to a vacuum on the pre-eminent issue of illegal immigration.  It was in this void that Trump's candidacy evolved.  His genius media campaign proved to dovetail nicely with commonsense conservative positions such as middle-class tax relief, veterans' health care and fair trade policies with China.   

Considering the probability that Trump will win the GOP nomination, it is high time the highly paid GOP elite transfer their allegiance in helping Trump to tap the crème de la crème of the American legal, diplomatic, military, and espionage corps.  Only in this way can the GOP establishment show conservatives they really intend to get serious about not just winning elections, but actually giving young Americans the firm sense of a future America worth living in, with a common culture and Judeo-Christian ethical foundation.

November 2016 Victory

Across both political and economic spectra, there is an instinctive realization that the United States can no longer afford to elect a commander-in-chief who lacks the resolve to defend America's national sovereignty.

When confronted with an existential threat, Americans will reject a hear-no-evil-see-no-evil approach to mounting internal strife and Islamic terrorism.

Democratic strategists would like nothing more than to repeat the economic election strategy of years past, where they contrast their concern for the less fortunate with the cold-hearted policies of the Republicans.  However, the Democratic nominee will not be able to profitably sow socialist lies when faced with the optics of a resolute, successful man who vows to make America great.
