Unfortunately, as Donald Trump becomes the Republican Parties Candidate for President,(OFFICIALLY), those behind his Triumph are again being given a free pass, AND PROGRESSIVES CONTINUE TO IGNORE VOTING BLOCS THAT ARE MUCH MORE REPRESSIVE THAN ANYTHING CORPORATE AMERICA COULD DREAM UP.
Since his Acceptance Speech is being Dissected by REGULAR NEWS OUTLETS, AND NUMEROUS SITES ON THE INTERNET, with his Tenuous Half- Truths, and Glib attempts at Deception falling flat, THE BIG QUESTION BECOMES THIS: WHO,OR WHAT, IS THE REAL POWER BEHIND HIS SUCCESSFUL BID FOR THE NOMINATION?
Normally, we would associate such an event with the following;
- ESTABLISHED PARTY LEADERS.- However, we are seeing just the opposite, with many REPUBLICAN STALWARTS REFUSING TO BACK HIM, WHICH INCLUDES NOT BEING IN ATTENDANCE AT THE CONVENTION. (TED CRUZ REBUFFING TRUMPS CANDIDACY BEING THE MOST RECENT.)
- FINANCIAL BACKING BY CORPORATE AMERICA.- Again, the Refusal or the Withdrawal of many Corporate Sponsors from the Convention seems to indicate a Lack of Enthusiasm in being associated with the REPUBLICAN PARTY, OR CANDIDATE TRUMP.
WHAT IS THE ANSWER?
ASK YOURSELF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS?
1) Since his Delegate Count came from Victories in PRIMARIES AND CAUCUSES ACROSS THE COUNTRY, WHAT WERE THE DEMOGRAPHICS OF THOSE WHO TURNED OUT TO VOTE? REMEMBER, THE NUMBER OF VOTERS WHO TURN OUT FOR PRIMARIES AND CAUCUSES ARE SMALL, COMPARED TO A GENERAL ELECTION.
2) If Candidate Trump considered his rejection by Traditional Republican Leadership, along with the Loss of Corporate Sponsorship, as not Important enough to CHANGE THE MESSAGE, TONE, OR METHODS THAT WERE BEING USED TO GAIN THE NOMINATION, THAN FROM WHAT SOURCE(S) DID HE DERIVE ENOUGH SUPPORT TO WIN THE NOMINATION?
WHY DON'T WE EXAMINE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY PLATFORM.
