Trump’s Inner Child

Standard

We (meaning non-Left-Wingers and Non-Socialists) have a presidential front runner who is forceful, not politically correct, successful, strong and personable — who behaves like a spoiled 12-year old. Frustrating!

On top of that frustration, he is allowing the news outlets to portray him as a right-to-lifer, which he is not. The pretext of the abortion questions that he was asked this past weekend was: if abortion was illegal”. Why he fell for that ploy and then unthinkingly implied, when asked who should be punished for the illegal procedure,  that the woman should be punished, I don’t know. He’s not stupid, but sometimes he appears to be very ‘slow.’

This childishness in Trump’s responses and in his demeanor will eventually sink his presidential bid. His advisors are apparently either not giving him good advice or, most likely, he is just ignoring the advice of everyone except that inner 12 year old child.

Jumping back on the Cruz bandwagon will not be too terribly hard but equally as frustrating because one of my most important political positions is secularism and Cruz is the opposite of a secularist. In spite of that, it is a no-brainer; we, as a nation, cannot afford another 4 or 8 years of a left-wing, or Marksist or a socialist administration. I will, I must vote for the Republican nominee be he an adult who sometimes behaves like a juvenile or a person who seems to prefer his religious beliefs to the  equality promised by the Constitution.
