But then I started thinking, the Clinton situation offers a beautiful example of government accountability requirements and the lack of them under the Obama Administration. After all, with the Fast and Furious scandal, Benghazi, IRS abuses, VA lack of care for veterans and on and on and on, it is clear that the greatest problem we have in the United States government today is a government bureaucracy that is lawless and completely out of control. And these thoughts brought me to surprise Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and his outsider status as a candidate and threat to the Establishment status quo. Trump, as a successful businessman, a smart if brash no nonsense man, should use the issue of government accountability as a centerpiece for his campaign. If he does, I don't think there is anyone who can match his abilities, for the Democrats have never worried about accountability and there are no other Republicans who can be independent enough (due to the need for campaign funds which always come with expectations from the giver) to take on the behemoth dragon of Washington and all of its corruption and crony capitalism. He is in a unique position at a unique time in American history and, if he is truly sincere in his goals, can likely take a big step toward cleaning the swamp.
There are several others running that I think are well qualified to do a good job. There's Ted Cruz, the young Texas Senator who is not afraid to take on the leadership using the truth the guide him. There's Dr. Ben Carson, a man with a renowned medical record who believes that his Christian values and his mother's strong upbringing should guide the decisions he would have to make. And there are other good people such as Carly Fiorina and Rand Paul, all of whom are outsiders, even those who are currently serving in Washington. But the only problem they have is money and they have to have some big donors who will certainly expect something from them in return and that's where Trump's advantage is largest, for he can truly afford to be his own man.
I guess the only question that remains on that issue is what does Trump's financial freedom mean for Conservatives and that is a decision that each of us will have to make for ourselves as the process unfolds. Will he live up to what our expectations might be or will he take a different tack. And the only thing I can say about that is he loves his country and wants to see her succeed and prosper for all of us and that is probably foremost in every American's mind these days, especially after what we've been through.
So we'll talk about this tomorrow night at 9 pm. Hopefully, the comments offered will help each of us come to a conclusion on who Trump is, what he stands for and what this means to each of our lives. If that can be accomplished, from there we'll just have to see how things shake out in the months ahead. One thing I do know, they will, if we can win with a reasonably conservative candidate, much different from the way things look today and that, in itself, would be quite a blessing.
I hope you'll join me . I'll even try and take a few comments. The number is posted on the link below.
