Lots of people have already said this and I'll join in. I'm voting for Donald Trump because he's honest. He comes across as crazy and lots of people associate that with being psycho, which he is not. He is outspoken and that's what's made him so attractive to so many Americans (and non-Americans). He's not hidden away behind layers of yes-men you normally find with guys like Bush, Clinton and others. Trump stands out. He says what's on his mind. That's the Trump lots of people relate to. He doesn't hold back. He doesn't think about what he says, like most politicians do. What turns people off politicians is the double-speak. Saying what they think their audience wants to hear. Trump does the same except he doesn't censor himself. He insults and degrades whatever and whoever comes to his mind. It's undiplomatic and unsavoury to many ears but it's up front and in the open. People appreciate that.
The greatest good Trump will do however, is dismantle and destroy the Koch brothers, Charles and David, the third generation corrupt German industrialists (their family worked for and with both Hitler and Stalin), multi-billionaires who own and control(led) the Republican Party for decades. They run a tight organization that channels almost a billion dollars annually donated by their buddies into an election fund for their favourite candidates. Bush and Reagan got elected with no small help from the Koch brother's machinations behind the scenes.
The Koch brothers run the American electrical system including the Democrats (Hillary and Bill were recipients and clients) and without the Kochs you simply don't get past home base. Donald Trump knew about this scandalous group and decided they would not own him. He hasn't mentioned Kochs by name so far but people in the know, know who he's targeting.
The Koch brother's Tea Party failed but that did not stop the Kochs from recruiting others. Sara Palin was in their palm. Notice that the people the Kochs back are not intellectuals. Sara Palin is a prime example as is George W Bush - both quite dumb patsies. That's the kind of candidate the Kochs like. Little pussies and puppets who sing the Koch song and dance to their tune.
Trump decided long ago that he wouldn't be bought. He used his own money. He could say what he wanted and do what he said without answering to the puppet masters in the Koch organization. Trump was the Koch's worst nightmare. Prominent Republicans announced they were voting Democrat in droves to teach Trump a lesson. Anyone but Trump they said. The Republican Party was getting a deserved black eye. It was in shambles. Despite the fact that the Koch organization is invisible to the masses and even ignored by the media (by design since they are themselves owned by the Kochs in some way - the billionaire owners of the media know their allegiance to the Kochs and toe the line by not spilling the beans - unless some renegade reporter does that for them).
Trump in the White House will change the landscape of American politics. He won't be able to get everything he wants since the American system is a three-way power block - the Judiciary, Congress and the Executive Branch as set up two hundred years ago. All three must agree before laws can be passed. It's the design of the system that prevents maniacs from taking over and running amuck. Unfortunately, it's driven much of the real power underground to organizations such as the CIA, FBI, Pentagon and NSA, the most powerful blocks of government agencies in the world. Want to get rid of snitches, just call the CIA and problem solved. Nothing an assassination can't fix. Want to topple a problem country, call the CIA. Need to shut up some trouble-makers claiming 911 was an inside job? The FBI at your service - dozens of whistle-blowers gone (yes really!).
Someone like Trump won't make a big dent in the system in just eight years. It's too insideous. Too filled with insiders who wield more power than the President because, well, they're not accountable. The President can forge a new direction if he chooses in some policy area, a new wall on the Mexico border, for example, but the path to success is a mine field of these cloak and dagger types lurking in the shadows that the President has no control over.
The fact that virtual dummies like Reagan and GW Bush could run the US, is ample proof that the man in the top is really not in charge. The President is a figure-head, like a Monarch, who wishes this and that, but the system and the administration, tens of millions of stubborn mediocre civil servants marching to their own managers and administrators music determine the real direction things will go.
Trump will certainly shake up the system. He will take no prisoners and has no friends in the Adminstration to lose. He will set out new policies and directions that will bring some economic justice to the huge middle-class that have been driven down by the policies driven by people like the Kochs that brought enormous wealth to ever fewer more powerful individuals and stripped middle-America to pre-war levels. Trump, hopefully, will reverse that. He will have eight years to accomplish that. He will then be in his early eighties and ready to step down by the end of his second term and if he succeeds in his plans, if he escapes assassination attempts by the CIA or FBI or other hired guns, America will be different and probably better.
That's why, if I was an American, I would vote for Donald Trump. He is the last great hope to save America from the worst of the worst people such as Kochs and other gansters who would enslave every last American if that was possible to increase their personal wealth and power. The Kochs are the virus that lurks in most societies including Russia, the EU and most Thirld World countries. Guys like Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe who destroy their countries and suck the life out of ordinary citizens who don't have a chance of elevating themselves from poverty and hoplessness. Mugabe thrives under a weak constitution that enables demagogues like himself to run a dictatorship over illiterate and impoverished masses. He outguns the electorate and grabs every ounce of power available. To see such a dictatorship in this age is hard to fathom. But America is sliding down the same path.
Someone like Trump can change it or at least slow it and maybe start reversing it. America cannot afford another term with someone like Hillary Clinton, an establishment member who has admitted she cannot relate to the people she wants to govern. Kings and Queens ruled like that for centuries before democracies took over and the people got to choose their leaders. Kings and Queens live isolated in castles and cannot possibly know what it is to struggle to make a living by ordinary people. That is Hillary's problem. She knows it. She's secretive and sneaky enough and cannot be trusted to govern without running afowl of the the law.
What you see with Trump is what you get. He's been more honest than all the other dozen power hungry candidates that he knocked off the podium. Hillary has proven herself strong in the campaign which has forced Trump to be even stronger and that is the nature of competition and the way the system does and should work. And that is why I'm voting for Trump - if I could that is.
