Yet despite all the hype of the musings of the political elite, Donald Trump seems to have struck a raw nerve with many Americans who are just fed up with the way Washington operates. Nowhere is it more noticeable than his outspoken truth about our wide open borders and open door immigration policy. Americans know that current actions are not right for a sovereign state and they have witnessed a significant decrease in the value of their citizenship relative to our government's treatment of illegal aliens who have invaded our land in search of free benefits and employment.
And the political class is aghast that someone has the audacity to tell the truth about what they are doing. This includes the leadership of both parties and the President of the United States. But since Trump is his "own man", not needing or requesting campaign donations or lobbyist consent, he is free to say what's on his mind and propose actions to change the status quo.
Can Trump be successful in gaining the Republican Presidential nomination? No one knows. But it is certain that he will be present from the outset of key political debates with his Republican counterparts and therein will bring the issues that are critical to the forefront showing his differences from the rest of the pack. From all indications based upon his quick rise in the polls, this will at least be a strike for real populism and at best a smack in the face for the arrogant elites who are trying to dictate the terms to we, the people for our government's operation.
We will also discuss a similar, yet less dramatic, situation among the Democrats where socialist Bernie Sanders is going after the assumed nominee, Hillary Clinton, due to her unwillingness to come clean with the public and meet the press candidly. Bernie, however, has money issues and will be hard pressed to stay long in the process against Hillary's money machine.

Trump is trying to wake up America and bring her back to a direction from which her citizens have primacy in consideration. If you agree with so many others who feel that way, you might want to tune in. See you then.
