Trump is Our Man!
We here at In Middletown We Trust, believe it’s important to come out in favor of one candidate over another. Not that it should influence your decision on what candidate to choose, but take this as a piece of information as you would any other news story. We actually met Mr. Trump, albeit briefly, last week at his rally in Hartford. As for his presence, stature, and ideas, they are everything you think they would be from seeing him on TV. He is a powerful force to be reckoned with, and he brings a lot of new and interesting ideas to the table. So, the big question is, why would we choose to endorse him?
The answer is fairly simple. Donald Trump, although it is widely believed that he was given his wealth and power by his father, Fred Trump, that actually is not true. In the 1970’s, it is true his father gave him a loan, of $1 Million Dollars. Donald turned around, and invested in real estate in Manhattan, when no one else was, and well, we know how that turned out. Donald paid his father back almost immediately, and “The Donald” started re-investing his money into new ventures. As far as a businessman, Donald Trump is the American icon when you think of successful businessman. Has he failed? Sure. But he’s come back every time.
America is in trouble. Big trouble. In more ways than we have time to list here. The biggest misconception is that the President of the United States has absolute power, which is totally incorrect. It’s Congress, The Senate, and the Cabinet members that really run the show, and just as in business, the President oversees all of this, and has the final word. (There is probably a hundred things wrong with that overview, but let’s just get through this thing.) Does Donald Trump know how to be President? No. Do you? Or I? No. It’s not something there is a course at the local Community College can cover. But, Donald Trump has experience as a successful businessman, and to get to his level of success, he has had to bring in the best people for the job in each field that was needed in each of his ventures. This is why we believe Donald Trump will make a great President; because he will bring in the best people to do the jobs that are vital to running this country.
Mr. Trump and this writer have one thing in common, we both hold Teddy Roosevelt in high regard. And it was Teddy Roosevelt that said this:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
