Trump May Win All 50 States

Admit it. Donald Trump is a volcano in a forest of Ronson lighters.

You're not going to stop him. He may carry all 50 states.

The awareness of Trump's invincibility is dawning slowly for several reasons. Nobody wants to be revealed as a fool if Trump flames out. Also, such a breathtaking prediction hates to be borne all alone. "Out on a limb" is a lonely place for a pundit to be. Then, too, a lot of heretofore wise observers are obeying the instinct to adopt a "business as usual" stance. We put subconscious pressure on ourselves so that yesterday's "clown-by-consensus" isn't too abruptly hailed as the winner this absurdly long before the first vote is cast. The dreamers in the GOP are still reassuring one another that Trump's domination is a "summertime thing," and that come fall the public anger will be gone and the people will ask themselves, "Is this the kind of person we want in the Oval Office?" Dream on, Dear Establishment. People are already asking that question, and the answer is not just "Yes"; it's "Hell, Yes!"

Eight years ago Americans decided to take a chance on a "community organizer" without one single discernable accomplishment, not even authorship of his own book! (Thank you, Jack Cashill!) Obama was editor of the Harvard Law Review - and never wrote a single editorial. And we elected and re-elected him.

And now we're taking the measure of a billionaire 11 times over who's boldly carved his signature in stone and steel and golf-course green around the world, written best-selling books and produced and starred in dazzlingly high-rated TV shows, and you're trying to tell me this world-class accomplishmentarian is a summertime thing set to evaporate with the first fall chill? In a pig's eye! Even his worst enemies agree that Donald Trump gets things done. Meanwhile, your community organizer is now a political kidney stone that will take 17 more months to pass. You don't like Trump's rhetoric, maybe? What'swrong with "I love this country and I want to make it great again"?

Donald Trump has ruptured every rule of nature and human nature, science and political science, and continues to sneer at the Law of Gravity itself as he personally and deliberately pushes every down-button while his elevator nonetheless continues up, up and up.

Sen. John McCain satisfies most people's definition of a war hero. Here comes Trump mocking McCain as being a "war hero only because he was captured." Some of those "wise observers" declared Trump doomed even at that early point. And what happened? Trump gained!

At the Fox News debate of Aug. 6, some sinister force that wanted to stick it to Trump led things off, not by obeying the natural and organic procedure of calling for all those candidates who vowed to support the eventual Republican nominee to please raise their hands. No. The moderator instead called for "all those who will not pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee" to please raise their hands. And whoever imposed that reverse wording got his wish. There stood Trump in the middle of the pack, all alone with his right hand in the air. And what happened? Trump gained.

Doesn't our culture forbid us to hit a woman? Meet Fox's rapturous Megyn Kelly, whose very appearance sets the syrups of the soul all a-sizzle even before her formidable IQ approaches the scale for a weigh-in. Kelly ticked off a litany of horrendous things Trump has uttered to denigrate women. Trump struck back hard. And what happened? Trump gained.

Aren't we supposed to tire quickly in the presence of a braggart? Trump plunges with gusto and abandon into firestorms of self-praise, citing his fabulous fortune, huge achievements, the hordes of people who love him and his admittedly impressive record for "getting things done"! Trump unloads like a sportscaster whose son just scored the game-winning touchdown in the Super Bowl, as he shares the news that there was just a poll in Nevada, and "I came in first among Hispanics!" Aren't candidates supposed to use subtle comments to smuggle across feelings likely to win them votes? Trump puts it all out on the front porch where the goats can get it. "And I'm going to take care of our warriors, whom I love! I love our wounded warriors!" Again, Trump gained.

Is Trump lying about the slump America's fallen into? And isn't it true that millions too few Americans are working, that our military has been eviscerated, that our allies distrust us, that our enemies no longer respect us, that we get beaten by smarter adversaries across every negotiating table? And isn't it true that smart, gutsy leadership that knows what it's doing could, indeed, make us great again?

If the anti-Trump rap weren't so pitiful I'd be much angrier. Forever we've longed for a leader who didn't have to mortgage himself out to fat-cats, a leader free to appoint the best people and not the best donors. Now we've got him.

During the War of Northern Aggression a group of less successful generals complained to Lincoln that Gen. Grant was an alcoholic.

"Find out what he likes," snapped Abe. "And send him another case."

I don't think Trump drinks.

    Trump is popular because his stated views are as ignorant and uninformed as are those of most of his audience.

    A billionaire populist is an interesting concoction. If he is sincere, gets elected, and implements even half of what he has stated he will implement, he will bankrupt this country.

    But, as he has stated, it won't be a personal bankruptcy, so somehow it is just fine.
    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.

    I still say he will be assasinated before or if he gets nominated. he won't see the inside of the white house.

    too much at stake for the power players.

    Good point, Mr. Cheese.

    Even better, (if history repeats itself) we can expect a newer, younger and prettier first lady a couple of years into his first term.

    I'd vote for Ronald McDonald over any of the current POS politiicans.

    If we get Trump it would be interesting to say the least.

    What the heck we have had an old Cowboy actor, a pair of bushes, a toothy peanut farmer, and a Mulatto who got elected because of his apparent race. Why the hell not a Trump card.

    America survived the other idiots one more is better than a self proclaimed Socialist or Bill Clinton's leftovers
    Why don't we go to school and work on the weekends and take the week off!

    Trump will not be nominated nor will any candidate that tries bucking the system. Our handlers have already picked the ones who will be nominated and that will be your illusion of choice and it doesn't matter which one gets the vote.

    You bet...If he drops out AND goes independent and Hillary wins then I win (although we all loose lol)...

    If Trump wins just the Presidency (cuz nobody's gonna win all 50 States) then you win.

    If he just drops out will be a draw.

    Winner gets 60 rounds of Hornady Critical Defense in the caliber of his choice.
    This bet is between GuvamintCheese and me only.[:D]

    No, the bet is trump flames out and goes independent. I say he won't, you say he will. I'm in for the 60 rounds of CD ammo.

    Pretty well-aimed stream, though.
