Like many citizens, I’ve wondered and tried so hard to understand why Trump has such a remarkable following.
(It's obvious why he shouldn’t!) Then a friend sent me this raccoon story. It makes no difference about your political leanings, this is just a good explanation of WHY... (Or it's as good as any I can come up with).
Please, don't reply with political rants from your side of the fence. This is not a message to support either party. It just helps understand how on earth Trump can remain so "popular." You have to admit, it's not easy to understand.
OK. To begin, a Republican writes a letter. Read on, even if you are a Democrat.
From the time I was able to vote I voted Republican. I am 70+ and have a great deal of respect and influence with hundreds of senior ballplayers who also network with thousands of others around the country.
I received your questionnaire and request for money to help support the Republican nominee for the office of the President. Rest assured, I strongly agree with every question as I have since Obama was elected. Unfortunately, an important question that was missing was, “What have the Republicans and their Party done for the American people lately?” While you seem never to have listened to us in the past Forty Years, we gave you a majority in the house and senate two years ago and you have done nothing with the power we provided you. And Now, you want more of our money?
You should be concerned about our votes not our money. You are the “establishment” and it’s apparent all you really want to do is to save your jobs and line your pockets. . . Well, guess what? It’s not going to happen. You can shake in your boots when I tell you our support is for TRUMP and he hasn’t asked for a dime.
You might think we are fools because you feel Trump is on a self-destruct course but you look outside DC and listen to the masses. Few, if any, have achieved what he has, especially in a state of New York .
If you really want to know how the majority of people feel, and this applies to both democrats and republicans, read below, it says it all.
Here comes the part about the raccoons:
You've been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is infested with raccoons. Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement. You want them gone immediately. You call the city, the county and 4 different exterminators. Nobody can handle the job . . . But then you hear of one guy and this one guy guarantees to get rid of them. So you hire him. You don't care if the guy smells, you don't care if he cusses and swears, you don't care if he's an alcoholic, you don't care how many times he's been married, you don't care if he voted for Obama, you don't care if he has plumber's crack, you simply want those raccoons gone! You want your problem fixed! He's the guy. He's the best. Period
Back to Trump
Here’s why we want Trump. Yes he's a bit of an ass, yes he's an egomaniac, but we don't care. The country is a mess because its politicians suck. The Republican Party is two-faced & gutless, and illegals are everywhere. We want it all fixed! We don't care that Trump is crude, we don't care that he insults people, we don't care that he had been friendly with Hillary, we don't care that he has changed positions, we don't care that he's been married 3 times, we don't care that he fights with Megyn Kelly and Rosie O'Donnell, we don't care that he doesn't know the name of some Muslin terrorist.
This country is bankrupt and appears weak. Our enemies are making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegal's, we are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hasid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don't even recognize the country we were born and raised in. "AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED" and Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.
We're sick of our politicians, sick of the Republican Party, sick of Democratic Party and sick of illegal’s. We just want this thing fixed. Trump may not be a saint, but doesn't have lobbyist’s money holding him, he doesn't have political correctness restraining him, all you know is that he has been very successful, a good negotiator. He has built a lot of things. He's also not a politician, not a cowardly politically correct politician. And he not only says he can fix it, he says he will fix it and we believe him.
And we believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar. Also we don't care if the guy has bad hair.
We just want those raccoons gone, out of our house, NOW.
You are welcome to pass this on. I feel this is why hundreds of thousands of people that haven't voted in 25 years are registering to vote this year. The raccoons have got to go.
