I have been trying to understand the appeal of Trump… Yeah, I got my own ideas on why or how but I needed to ask others and this is what I have surmised from my conversations.
Winning in America used to be the ultimate reality show in self determination.
As Americans we usta gravitate towards any challenge especially those deemed against all odds.
We usta go out, meet any task head on, doing our best and stand proudly when beating all those who stood in our way… and then, being able to boast about it.
This was the way American usta be… And if I may steal a quote from one of baseballs greatest Dizzy Dean, “it ain’t bragging if you can do it” which now begets the label of being a bigot.
Donald Trumps greatest appeal is very simple… he wants to win and is not and will not be ashamed of wanting or acting or being a winner.
In America, winners have been redefined with participation trophies, where all participants are acknowledged equally, as to not offend. Dodgeball on the schoolyard recreation courts has been replaced with more gender neutral sports.
America has been defined by winners and losers all throughout its history and we have taken great pride in winning… against Tyranny and repression at both home and around the World.
Now we are told that we have to be ashamed of our historical heritage of winning.
This is Trumps appeal… We as Americans are natural born winners, it is part of our American DNA.
We want to win and we want to boast, brag and have a swagger as Americans.
And it is evident, thought the World, that our American winning swagger that was replaced by an apologetically ashamed Obama is sorely missed.
