How You Know Donald Trump's Over-The-Top Promises Are Not Lies, While Those of Other Politicians Are
Adam Carolla remarked the other day that Donald Trump is The Superhero Version Of An American President.
He is what we all imagine a President should be, because he is willing to make the grand gestures, stopping the speeding locomotive of Political Correctness, able to leap the tall buildings of Leftist Architecture - the Government-Media/Academia Complex - in a single bound.
Donald Trump will let nothing stop him. He will say whatever he has to say to win. He will do whatever he has to stop those opposing him in their tracks.
And we like that because we believe in the same things as him. We Are Americans. We want to win. We Are Americans. We believe in Excellence. We Are Americans. We believe We Are Leaders of The Free World.
We do not believe in timidity. We do not believe we should take a back seat on the bus of collectivism. And we don't believe in losing.
We believe in Winning. Donald Trump said, "We'll be winning so much we will get bored with winning" and we laughed and laughed, because
we know that that's just a joke, because winning never gets boring.
You stand against Trump, he makes fun of you. You insult Trump, he insults you. You oppose his policies, he will beat you.
He will begin to beat you with his words. Then he will beat you at the ballot box. And then, he will beat you into the ground with legislation.
Take the Wall, for instance. People laugh when he promises the wall. Many of us who love Trump don't even believe he means it.
"He won't build a wall," we think to ourselves. "And even if he does, he won't be able to make Mexico pay for it."
But still, even as don't necessarily believe him, we stand here waiting, with baited breath. "Maybe, by God, the man means it. Maybe he really will build that fucking wall, and maybe he really will drag Vicente Fox out into the Town Square of the entire world, and make him write a fucking check."
Maybe he will.
But even if he doesn't, even if Trump doesn't even believe his own words when he says he will, WE STILL KNOW DONALD TRUMP ISN'T LYING!
"Wait a minute," you say. "What do you mean he's not lying? If he says something he does not mean to carry through on, that's a lie, right? Why, I dare say, that's the very definition of a lie."
And certainly it is, IF ANY OTHER POLITICIAN SAID STUFF LIKE THIS IT WOULD BE A LIE.
BUT IT IS NOT A LIE WHEN DONALD TRUMP SAYS IT.
And, everyone knows it is not a lie.
Even those of you accusing him of being a liar, even you know it is not a lie.
Want me to prove it to you?
You know that Donald Trump is negotiating. That is his opening bid. He will build a wall across the entire Southern Border, and he will make Mexico pay for it.
That's his offer. Take it or leave it.
Now, let's say Mexico is so shrunken, so terror-seized by the audacity of that offer, that they simply cave. They send Vicente Fox out from behind the crumbling, bullet-ridden, adobe facade that is the Mexican Government's moral authority, with his little red checkbook, and he scribbles the payment out with his shaking hand.
Let's say that's what happens.
Do you think Trump wouldn't take the deal?
Of course he would.
And that's how you know
he's not lying. That's how you know
he means what he says.
He is not attempting to fool us into voting for him by saying things he doesn't mean. Everything he says is a statement of fact as to the direction he wants to go.
He wants it. This is his goal.
THIS IS OUR BIG AMERICAN GOAL. IT'S THE BIGGEST GOAL YOU'VE EVER SEEN.
In fact, you could says IT'S A HUGE GOAL.
Other politicians are mired in small goals, incremental goals, cost-of-living increase goals, food stamp goals, borrow-money-from-our-Social-Security-fund goals.
Other politicians are not going in the right direction. They do not want to extend American Power and Influence. Instead, they want to retreat from our own borders, creating a "borderless world." They do not want to increase American Prosperity. They think Americans have too much, that we're too rich, and spoiled, that we are the undeserving recipients of "obscene profits."
Donal Trump's goals are America's goals: To Win. That's our Direction.That's our Goal. And we will do whatever we have to do to accomplish what we believe in.
Other politicians don't really believe in that, and even if they say they do, they don't really mean it.
Trump means it. We mean it.
