Why Is That Trump Feller So Popular With The People and Not With The Establishment Republicans—A Guest Post by Rube

HeadShot_burnedGreetings folks.  Well, Rube asked if he could weigh in again today.  He had some observations that coincide with mine, so I said, “yes, by all means, let’s see what you have to say.”  So as usual, without further ado, here’s Rube.

Howdy, folks.  I was a listenin’ ta that Rush Limbaugh feller on the radio the other day, and I reckon as how he said some things I just had to agree with.  He was a talkin’ about that Trump feller and why he thought Mr. Trump was so popular.  He said them establishment Republicans is a havin’ a tizzy fit gittin’ their shorts all bunched up over tryin’ to figger out why that Donald feller is so popular, and they is plumb scared to death about his popularity.

The DonaldWhat was interestin’ to me was his take on the reason them folks is so scared.  That Trump feller is a cuttin’ inta their gravy train.  Ya see folks, he is a fundin’ his own campaign, so he isn’t spendin’ a lot money fer things such as speech writers, consultants and analysts, and advisors of every sort or another.  Most of them other candidates hire a bunch o’ people who tell them they gotta do this, or they gotta say that, in order to get the votes.   But Mr. Trump is a provin’ them analysts and advisor type folks ain’t really needed.  I reckon as how he’s provin’ them folks is all just a bunch of windbag pompous jackasses who I reckon as how don’t know didily squat about anythin’ they’re talkin’ about.  He’s a followin’ his own instincts and it’s workin’; and them folks in the media, and all them other folks who make tons o’ money off them politicians is in a real tither ’cause if he is successful in winnin’ this campaign,  other politicians might see the writin’ on the wall and realize they been throwin’ good money after bad all these years to all them so-called experts, and them folks ain’t really all that productive.  Them professional advisors, analysts, and speechwriters is worried  that their gravy bowl might not get filled up again, and  I reckon as how that might be a good thing. In the future, maybe we might git some people running fer office who can think fer themselves.

Now I reckon as how  I still don’t know if that Trump feller will make a good president or not, but I’m purty sure he ain’t no professional politician, and that part of him, I like.  I reckon as how he appears to be a feller that follows his own instincts instead of listenin’ to a lot of pointy headed intellectuals who is full of nothin’ but a lot of hot air and who is overly impressed by their own self-importance.

In the old days, I used to enjoy watchin’ the sit-coms on the TV.  The new sit-coms, in my estimation ain’t much good.  They even have to insert them phony laugh tracks inta the shows in order to get a laugh.  Exceptin’ there is a form of sit com on TV today that I find kinda amusing.  It’s the weekly roundtable discussions with a bunch o’ them pointy headed intellectual news commentators, and other types sittin’ around a table a talkin’ to themselves and tryin’ to convince us so-called common folk of what we should be a thinkin’, and how we should be a votin’.

Another thing I agree with that Rush Limbaugh feller about is, that he reckons as how them establishment Republicans ain’t any more interested in shrinkin’ the size and scope of geverment anymore than them Democrats.  They’re on the gravy train, too, and they ain’t got any hankerin’ ta git off. As I said in one of my other guest posts on this blog, we only have one major political party in this country operating under two differnt names, Democrat and Republican.  They oughta merge and call themselves the Republicrat Party.

In closin’, take it from an old railroader who never went past eighth grade, and who reckons as how America is headin’ fer some rough roads ahead.  Maybe even fer a major train wreck.  I reckon as how this next election is really gonna be a major cross road.  Statue of LibertyWill we veer off to the right a bit toward that beacon of freedom, or will we take a sharper Train Wreckleft turn toward a major train wreck?.

See ya next time,




P.S. Maybe Will’s latest novel, SHADOW REVOLUTION might not be so far fetched.  Ya outhta check it out a amazon.com or barnes&noble.com.

  • It’s pretty evident that old Rube did get through the 8th grade because he writes real smart on this politics stuff. You learn a lot in those eight years and he must’a paid attention cause he has a keen appreciation of the fix we’re in here in America. The establishment that he and Rush talk about has become a real noose around our necks and those types ain’t gonna fix anything in Washington-they like it just the way it is! But they’re killing America-and most of us in it!

    Rube shows his smarts when he praises that Trump guy everyone is attacking, but also admits he don’t know what kind of president he’d make. But a lot of folks are flocking to Trump’s side. I guess its because he speaks simply and honestly from the heart. I don’t think he’d steal us blind or sell favors like the others have all done. And one things for sure-he’d make some stuff happen! Like simplifying the tax code, gettin rid of the educators screwing up the schools, makin jobs, stop letting foreign dictators walk all over us, and best of all, he’d control our borders and keep the terrorists out! He hasn’t said much about it, but he might just knock some heads on Wall Street and stop all the speculating and crazy banking things that’s making the 1% filthy rich at our expense. And I bet he’d take those thousands of separate entitlement programs and roll them into a couple sensible safety nets for those poor folks who really need help. If those were just managed right they would do a better job of helping those people who deserve help and stop giving money to those who don’t.

    I gather that Will Edwinson feller mostly agrees with Rube and who wouldn’t-Rube makes sense. I think that’s the Donald’s attraction too–he doesn’t seem to care about all that ideology stuff, the labels like conservative or progressive, and all that BS. And he’ll change his mind when he thinks he’s been wrong; it takes a big man to do that! He just believes that honesty and common sense action can save America! And I think that’s a pretty refreshing way to make America great again!

    • Hi Bill:

      I’m sure Rube will be delighted with your comments and your compliments about his insight. Albeit, Rube doesn’t have much formal education, that doesn’t mean he’s not educated. He reads a lot. I’ve known Rube all my life. As a matter of fact, we were both born on the same day in 1935.

      • Hi Will, I was born, maybe on the same day, but in 1933 so I share your extended experience with America’s course over the last 60 years, and fully understand Rube’s annoyance of the bad direction we have taken. I have studied the cultures of many of the world’s people over the last 3,000 years, and it seems obvious that some cultures and religions have fared better than others. It is a truism that some people, religions and cultures are better than others–multiculturalism be damned! And diversity? It can be both good and bad. We need a diverse group of capable people, but we don’t need capable and incapable people–that’s a type of diversity we unfortunately seem to be developing.

        The good thing is that we were born into one of the number one best cultures in history. It’s too bad we have so many seeking to “transform” it. All we need to do is manage what we have better! Instead we elect amateurs to office and they appoint political flacks to run the country!
