Nice Deb has a great write up about Donald Trump, complete with supporting links. While I find Trump’s leap into the Obama birth certificate issue interesting, Trump is NO friend to liberty minded people. In the last election cycle Trump donated money to Harry Reid’s campaign as he battled against Sharon Angle. Anyone who would support Reid financially in his bid for re-election is NO friend to freedom or liberty.
After watching an unknown and unvetted candidate win the last election, one would think that liberty minded people would be apprehensive of egotistical candidates popping onto the scene. Check out Nice Deb’s link above and find out about the Donald.. as far as I’m concerned this false patriot is fired.
Will Trump be the stumble that dooms the Tea Party?
Trump, all bluster and bouffant, apotheosizes the dangers of co-option and conspiratorial irrelevance which could make the Tea Party stumble. For all his outsider claims, the New York celebrity has a great deal in common with the worst visions of sleazy cult-of-personality politicians. Writing amidst the Socialist revolution in France in the mid-1800s, Alexis de Tocqueville warned against a creature, a “half ape, half jackal,” who “remained silent while the majority were making up their minds,” and as soon as he judged a decision made, “rushed to place himself at their head, and often went far beyond them.” More than 150 years later, this species still exists.
