In just a few hours we will know who our next president will be. I believe it will be Donald Trump. Not only will he win, he will win big. He will carry Democratic counties, parishes, entire cities and states. Some of which will have NEVER ever been won by a republican.
Here’s why. There is something about Donald Trump that is alluring (think Kavorka) and attractive to almost everyone! Most people wish they could say what they want to anyone, without the fear of consequences. Your neighbor who plays loud music at night, your boss who keeps you late without overtime, your coworker who is lazy, the driver of the car in front of you who might be reading this article right now! It doesn’t just apply to being confrontational. We all know how bad it can get when responding to something benign as: “Do I look good in this dress”? or “Tell me what you really think about me, and I promise I won’t be upset”.
You see, most of us have impulse control that prevents us from really telling others how we feel about them. If we did, where would we stop before going too far? How much would too far be? So, the average person has a built in protection that suppresses our innate want to tell someone just how we feel about them. This saves us from awkward, embarrassing, confrontational and even violent outcomes. It helps us survive another day.
Not so, with the Donald. He says what he wants, when he wants to whomever he wants. Pundits have opined that he is lacking substance, clear thinking, coherent policy etc. But that doesn’t matter, because he’s not trying to get your vote based on his policies. Rather, he is appealing to the frustrated American wherever he or she may be, who is unable to speak their mind, because they are aware of consequences and are afraid of them. Trump is unafraid and this is what really turns people on, whether they realize it or not. It allows them to look past all of the flaws.
Please join me in acknowledging to yourself that while you may dislike Donald Trump, deep down, you wish you could tell people what you really thought of them and where they can go. You wish you could shoot from the hip, without worrying about the consequences. But you won’t. Instead, you will vote for the Donald because you are living vicariously through him.
