Why Donald Trump appeals to voters

Donald Trump has skyrocketed in the polls not because he’s pompous and crude and has a bloated image of himself.  His appeal is to those who know that their government has become pompous and full of itself.  Voters are sick and tired of the lies told to them by government officials, and now that they have to hear it all over again in the 2016 presidential campaign cycle, it’s reached a tipping point. 

Voters are sick of reading how illegal immigrants walk away from five DUI convictions when they know of people who lost their driver’s licenses and paid a heavy price for doing far less.  They are sick of hearing how Hillary Clinton left the White House broke when she set up her husband to earn tens of millions in speeches for favors she gave to international corporations and foreign governments.

The talking heads on TV cable news and those on radio who trash Donald Trump and say he’s unfit to be president are unfit to comment on politics.  They don’t get it.  The big shots on TV news make millions a year and are part of the Washington-New York big government complex.  They are seen as attacking Trump because they don’t want to offend their friends who dine with them at exclusive events paid for by the taxpayers.

Trump may be wealthy, but he didn’t earn his money giving speeches like Bill Clinton or giving inside contracts to Solyndra like President Obama.  And for President Obama to insist that a follower of Islam who yells “Allahu akbar” and shoots innocent members of the military on a base is just a participant in workplace violence is more than a lie; it is designed to undermine what most voters know the U.S. is about.

There seems to be no end to the abuse voters are taking from government.  Every billing cycle, their property taxes go up, while illegal immigrants earning minimum wage send their kids to free public schools and receive free health care.  The government of San Francisco had no sense of guilt or accountability for the murder of Kate Steinle, and their stonewalling of the genuine concern American citizens have for their families is galling. 

To add insult to injury, these officials refuse to answer questions, walk away from the people who pay their exorbitant salaries, and act above the law themselves.  Voters are ready for a candidate like Donald Trump, and if news people continue to trash Trump, all they are proving is that they don’t get it, they don’t understand voters, and they will be seen as supporting the politicians who are overtaxing and abusing the real voters.
