Why is Trump winning? The media and leading Democrats are stumped, as they would be – given all they have done. Yes, he is a proven quantity, former president. Yes, times were good economically, and there was domestic and international security. Yes, he weathers storms well. But it is more than all this.

Here is the raw truth. Trump is winning for a thousand small reasons, but mostly because people are in pain, their love of country, history, families, work, faith, and common sense being mocked.

They want someone who believes in their dreams, not the government’s dreams, their independence, their right to be free from mandates and dominance, their right to be safe from illegal aliens, drugs, Iran, China, terror, and wrong-headed, unconstitutional abuses of power.

They want to have Washington’s elites back off, back away, stop profiting from all the abuses, unchecked insider trading, private deals with America’s enemies, and subjecting those that believe in truth and integrity to harassment, arrest, prosecutions, fake crimes, oppressive acts with no place in the lexicon of America.

They do not want more masks, shutdowns, firings, lost businesses, closed schools and churches, arrogant teachers’ unions, socialist lessons, the end of two sexes, and ridicule from national leaders who line their pockets with money taken from their calloused hands. They want the freedom they know is theirs to make choices.

They are sick of all the public corruption, electoral corruption, racial, radical, and social justifications for violence, giveaways, loan forgiveness, and entitlements.

They disdain those who cry victim and make others pay, who harass those of faith, who invade girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, and privacy, who take away the aspirations and competitive rights of girls, who make parents terrorists, push provocative, anti-American redefinition of words like girl, woman, boy, man, illegal alien, illegal drug, illegal bribe, impeachment, insurrection, and the woke, broken, leftist ideas that dismiss, distort, and disrespect history, biology, and law.

They are sick of being talked down to, brazenly lied to, and accused of not knowing what they know. They are sick of being disrespected as hardworking taxpayers, consumers, parents, thinkers, and believers – the people who, unlike many in government, get things done, fix things, sweat, suffer, and make the nation run.

They are tired of being told children late in a pregnancy are not children, that murder at birth is fine, that standing up for life deserves an arrest, and that peaceful protests are violent while violent ones are peaceful. BS.

They are tired of lies, half-truths, and abuses by leaders in the US State Department, Justice, Homeland, and Defense Departments, and lies by leaders at FBI, FISA, IRS, EPA, Transportation, Education, and White House – all unpunished.

They are tired of anti-democratic people in power dictating to the rest of us, making big money by corrupt acts, then calling those who call them out undemocratic, “enemies of the people,” enemies of “democracy.” Bull.

They are tired of top-down, do-as-I-say, definitionally fascist actions covered as this, that, and the other “justice,” somehow permissible, socially acceptable. Crap.

They are tired of leaders who stay in power forever, live off taxpayers’ toil while spending and stealing them blind and broke, robbing future generations for fancy dinners.

They are outraged by the lack of accountability, one-party privilege, and the audacity to lie big, cover, target, and harass those who question, then let felons go, turn innocents and those who dissent from a concentration of power into criminals.

They do not want the sky. They do not want some transformative new form of activist government. They do not want an end of American history, a new narrative, more COVID money, bailouts for bad debtors, reparations, or anything else.

They want the simple rights promised in the Bill of Rights. They want those rights honored, like freedom of speech, religion, gun ownership, self-defense, defense of others, no warrantless home invasions, federal violations of privacy, or unfair trials.

They want their government to be limited, accountable, not large, lumbering, repressive, and uncontrolled. They want a free market economy, not one twisted by mindless socialism, backbreaking debt, high inflation, high interest, taxes, and overspending. 

They want a border treated like a border, one side this country and the other another, and no free entry. They want a military ready, equipped to fight and win.

In short, they want what most American citizens throughout our noble, hard-bitten history have had: the right to be free and to be free of corrupt, overreaching, untethered, off-their-nut arrogant, increasingly lawless leaders.

What they want is not too much to ask, not long ago understood by those in power and those seeking power. They want their Constitution back, their rights, government, control over their lives, families, money, language, and laws back.

They want leaders who appreciate and respect their God-given freedoms. Trump does. That is why Trump is rising across every region, religion, and demographic slice of America and in every recent poll. People want their country and lives back.

Fear and freebies matter far less than freedom and fairness. Americans are finding their voice, increasingly unafraid to speak up, and have had enough. That is the raw truth. America is voting for America. Trump gets it. That is why he is winning.

Well said Mr. Charles. You have covered everything that those of us want our country to be and there are those of us that find that to be in Trump.

RBC,

Here’s my take. Trump is winning because the rational thinking half of the American people are frankly to the point where they see through a lot of the BS the professional political class dishes out during the campaign season only to switch, like a traffic light, to a completely different mode of “let’s just keep doing the status quo and hope no one notices” the moment they get into office. It’s taken quite a while and lot of unnecessary pain for the country and its people, but at least half the country finally seems to recognize choosing only from the professional political class will only result in more of the same “nothing really gets done that is truly beneficial to the country or its people”. What matters is results and Trump delivered a lot despite the non-stop opposition from the entrenched administrative state, that isn’t interested in the American people other than for paying for the ongoing boondoggles the left dreams up, and the series of schemes the Democrats tried throughout his first term.

The standard, professional class pol simply disregards virtually every promise they make during the campaign, the so-called talking points being spewed to “get the vote” and then proceed to govern like every other self-serving politician that has been bought off by their major donors and has to deliver on what they want or else.

The American people simply want someone who hasn’t been bought off by the billionaire donor class, that is mostly Democrat by the way, and genuinely wants what is best for the country and its people. It really is that simple. As an example, take a look at the big Wall Street fundraiser being held this week for Nikki Haley by her major donors. Look at the who is scheduled to attend beyond just Reid Hoffman, a major Democrat donor along with several other major Democrat financial backers in attendance and tell me their agenda is an agenda that is beneficial for the American people over the long-term. They set and control what she says on the campaign trail, and they expect her to deliver on THEIR priorities. She sounds more and more like Hilary Clinton with each passing day and that should be setting off alarm bells with Republican voters.

It is simple Trump did an Excellent job as President and has had the opportunity to make mistakes and learn. All other candidates lack experience as President, Have never dealt with the pressure, the politics, or the being a constant target. Trump has dealt with those issues and still gotten much accomplished. Most important he is the only candidate that truly has shown he cares and listens to what people want. He is for America and not against it or for special interests he is for all the country.

Mr. Charles, you have just enumerated American values and succinctly, thank you. These are not conservative as much as American values. I hope the left will begin to see the difference.

I always thought of Trump as a Pompas Ass. Everybody has a fault or two. For what he has done for this country that can be easley overlooked. First off Trump is a busine3ss man,not some mealey mouthed politician. I voted for him last time ,and I intend to do so again. Trump is not afraid to get things done. He puts this country and it’s people first. When Joe shut that oil pipe down ,that wasn like taken food off the family table. I’m old and seen a lot of presidents. But i’ve never seen a sorry piece of crap like we got 9n there now. So urg3 all to vote for Trump. Kyle L.

well, with the left has forgotten is that the United States of America is one nation under God! So, when you make promises and don’t keep them when you make laws, and they all obey them, there is only one you have to answer to, and that is God! And believe me, you don’t want what his answer will be for you on that day! So I pray that they will learn the truth that God is in control, and he will do what he feels is necessary to keep our nation under him! He has used Trump before and he will use him again if that is his plan. Bless America and bless all Americans.

Amen sir. The left has gone nuts! I just hope Trump and get the country back to normal. Back to law and order. Get rid of the Globalist ideals. Not sure but some minds need to change for sure. I hope we can get this ball rolling and keep it going longer than 4 yrs. That is what troubles me. I believe it will be Trump that runs against the Democrats but we need to keep the middle and normal democrats in our corner. Then get someone who carry the Flag when the 4 years are up. God Bless the USA.

That explains why Biden is losing. Those reasons could just as easily apply to DeSanits*. Trump is winning because of the Dem’s lawfare against him, people realize that if they don’t rebuke that, they could be next. For many (not nearly all, but enough), their vote for Trump is a protest vote against an injustice they see happening. The Dems gave us Trump as the Republican nominee, probably intentionally — I just hope that it is they, and not us, that come to regret it.
*Yes, I know DeSantis isn’t exactly Trump, but he’s close enough and without a lot of the rest of the baggage — and could serve 2 terms. We’ll need that time to get everything righted and Trump won’t be able to serve that long.

With the Primary now down to a 2 candidate choice, the decision is no more difficult than it was before anyone dropped out. Trump was. is and will be my choice. I would pay good money to see Haley never be president. She was is and always will be a RINO.

I’m a realist: Trump made mistakes his first time around, first of which was listening to the wrong ppl regarding COVID. Trump is a businessman and put too much faith in politicians. But I will vote for him this election. I would vote for DeSantis if he was in. Anyone is better than a POTUS bent on destroying America. 140+ attacks on US bases in the ME, where is the retaliation? Where’s the media coverage? How many DEAD or seriously injured military? Where is Biden and Harris now? Giving speeches about ABORTION today…

Trump is winning because, in spite of Deep State lies, people (at least on OUR side) and smart enough to believe our EYES, EARS, and pocketbooks. Trump, like William Tecumseh Sherman and George Patton, cuts through the BS and takes bold actions! Plus he loves America; he is not trying to “redefine” us as a bunch of milksops!

Why don’t you tell us how you really feel, Mr. Charles?!
There’s a lot to dislike about politics (or politicians) in America. The media are not doing their jobs, and until that’s fixed and schools are fixed, democrats are just going to spout lies because no one challenges them. No one except Republicans, that is. But, according to the polls, we’re making some progress.
I wonder if that smile behind DeSantis recent speech indicates Trump has chosen him as VP. Trump said “no more DeSanctimonious” and DeSantis now supports Trump.
As far as the “insurrection” goes, I watched a video of The Daily Signal host (name?) interviewing Capitol Policeman Lt. Tarik Johnson. If I remember correctly, it was taped last year. Johnson gave a minute-by-minute report of who did what and, more importantly, who didn’t do what should have been done. Normally, Capitol Police call in most of their force to cover events or expected trouble in D.C. On J6, they did not prepare for anything. The leader of Central Command, Ms. (I believe) Pittman failed to issue instructions when they had been requested several times, so the police in and around the buildings were left to make those decisions for themselves. No leadership! When Johnson asked about locking a certain door, there was no response from Pittman, and, because Johnson didn’t have the authority to lock it, this was an implied invitation for rioters to enter the Capitol and cause trouble! Incredible! Johnson laid the blame for the fiasco that day squarely on the head of the leader of Central Command–Pittman. Lt. Johnson said he would cooperate with Congressional committees investigating J6, but I don’t know if he has appeared. This definitely was an interview Trump’s legal team should see. President Trump doesn’t deserve to have all this, uh, crap thrown at him, and the dems should suffer the consequences of this monumental waste of time and resources.

Well said and well-written as always, Mr. Charles! You’ve got it exactly right. We DO want our country back, and make “them” – the ones who broke it, put it back together at their expense. I would tell President Trump: 1) think before you speak (novel thought!) 2) get better advisers this next time around (don’t use ANYBODY from inside the DC beltway, and few or none from the surrounding counties/towns! They are all tainted with the Deep State. Get some “real” Americans with the skills and the knowledge to help you and help this country! We’re out here, just ask! 3) Don’t forget the One who has anointed you for this job! He will keep and sustain you and your family! “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding. In ALL your way, acknowledge Him, and He WILL direct your paths!” (Proverbs3:5,6)

EXACTLY CORRECT! We are fighting to win, not just survive, but thrive in this our beautiful USA! Do not worship Trump, elect him to do a job he is capable of and then stand back and get out of his way. He will need help and support, but he knows what to do. Do not fear; follow his lead and change our country back to being OUR country not the radical left’s.
