The Divinely Human Prison: Chapter Thirty-Five: "What is this world coming to?! A President Donald Trump?!?!"
By Michael Moriarty
The tortoise and the bully hare.
That's what this Presidential race has become, between, what I think, are the two most formidable frontrunners in the Republican race for the White House.
Why have I labeled Scott Walker the tortoise?
He plays by most of the rules.
Donald Trump knows no rules but his own.
My favorite candidate for the Presidency, as I have been saying and writing about for the past two years, is Col. Allen West.
Both West, and his admirers like myself, know how crippled West's greatness has become in the wake of Barack Obama's indisputably black/Marxist/Muslim Presidential Disaster.
Scott Walker, however, has an impressively proven record as a Governor whereas the multi-billionaire businessman and television celebrity, Donald Trump, has no record as an elected official.
"I am obscenely rich," seems to be the general message from Donald Trump, "and I am proud of it! I am THE AMERICAN DREAM COME TRUE! Follow me and you will win. Don't support me and I will make sure you lose greatly with any of the Democrats!"
As far as I know, Walker and The Donald have yet to cross major swords… except for a brief lecture from Scott Walker about campaign manners.
However, was Trump justified in his contempt for prisoners-of-war after McCain had labeled Trump followers, "Crazies"?
One answer is here.
Despite the fact that I played a Vietnam prisoner-of-war in Hanoi Hilton, I think that John McCain, after all his own cheap shots at other politicians, deserved some kind of response from the man whose followers McCain belittled, calling them "crazies".
Most ironically, the director of Hanoi Hilton, Lionel Chetwynd, had this to say about Donald Trump, "Trump expressed his opinion. It was intemperate and probably not suitable for a presidential aspirant, but there is a reason it's resonated with so many Republicans, Democrats and Independents, as the polls initially showed. Everyone knows that our immigration system is hopelessly broken and is being cynically manipulated."
However, what is America going to do with the likes of Donald Trump?
He is not asking to be President of the United States.
He is demanding it!
On the other hand, here is a quick but good overview of Scott Walker's positions on a few major issues, the first being, "What do you do with a Donald Trump?"
Try not to get sucked into the The Donald's Whirlpool.
I am guilty of being a bit of a "Trumpet"… that's a Trump groupie.
Yes, it is a bit disturbing even for me to admit that.
I met the man once and was not too impressed then with anything but his bullying ways.
The last two and a half years of Barack Hussein Obama has surpassed Presidential bullying.
In my mind, Barack Obama is leaving a record of pure treason.
As for bullying, a number of Presidents have been "bullies".
Theodore Roosevelt gloried in his "bully pulpit"!
And, in the end, Abraham Lincoln gave the Confederate South an offer of peace they couldn't refuse.
That was one helluva bully!
In the horrid world we live in now, with not only a treasonous President running the United States, but the Russian Communists under Neo-Soviet tyrant, Vladimir Putin and the expanding Red Chinese military in the Pacific: and with both of these Communist behemoths joining up with an indisputably evil, terrorizing, homicidal and horrifically anti-Semitic, anti-American Iran to prowl the Mediterranean with joint naval maneuvers?!
We damn well need a classically American bully as President of the United States! And that bully, as far as I am concerned, in the absence of my greatest favorite, the third Millennium Dwight Eisenhower, Allen West, is Donald Trump!
Does the tortoise, Scott Walker, however, stand a chance?
He certainly won as, perhaps, the favorite among all of history's object lessons.
I won't be surprised if Scott Walker does win the Republican nomination.
Will Donald Trump then declare himself a third party contestant?
He hints that he won't… but, then again, you know Donald Trump… which means that none of us really know what he will do next.
That makes Donald Trump both an emotionally stressful leader but, in my opinion, a potentially great American President in the present circumstances.
The terrifying and increasingly dire situation is what is left of the Free World.
However, here is a taste of Trump's counter-punching and they are a pretty wild torrent of possible exaggerations.
I'm clearly not a scholar but, until Donald Trump, Governor Scott Walker's achievements have been a series of impressively uncontested victories of his opponents in Wisconsin.
The Scott Campaign's one great mistake as a primary candidate: Labeling, in a fund-raising event invitation, Donald Trump a "dumb-dumb".
Out of a terrible inclination and blazingly off-target. No living billionaire in the world is a "dumb-dumb."
I don't think that Scott Walker can afford another mistake like that.
Trump's billions ring more loudly than even Scott Walker's victories over the Wisconsin Unions.
As Trump's most determined and eloquent enemy, Charles Krauthammer noted, "All of life is at the mercy of politics."
The dreams of the human race, including those of Charles Krauthammer, however, are equally at the mercy of money.
Money has been very merciful with Donald Trump and has so liberated the Presidential candidate that he needn't censor a word he even thinks, let alone says.
Nothing could so infuriate the pundits of the world than that fact.
That Trump's crude but well-targeted honesty may win him the Presidency?
