THE TRUMP TRAIN- A BRIEF EXPLANATION This American democracy, a long, drawn out process not without its flaws, is one of the central pieces of government that the wildly popular and controversial candidate, Donald Trump, is attacking in his campaign. When he says his campaign is "entirely self-funded," he is not only bragging about his popularity and independence, but also is taking a subtle jab at the current system in which some candidates get billions of dollars(Super PACs anyone? ), and thus exploit the system by drowning it in money. In reality, this really happens, and a billion dollars can really give that certain candidate an edge over his competitors. Since that billion dollars most commonly comes from the top 1%, not the common people,
He says that Kasich and Cruz would both be much more suited to be our president. Donald Trump has said the most outlandish, racist and un-american things live on national television throughout this whole race. He has insulted the muslim religion, mocked previous Republican candidates and called past Presidents liars. He does not posses the qualities of a good leader. He states that Trump is childish, selfish and hard headed.
Senator Bernie Sanders is a self-described Democratic Socialist running for the presidency of the United States and one that actively extols of socialistic style policies other nations have implemented. Socialism is a dirty word in American politics and has been lobbed at President Barack Obama since his first campaign. Yet, Senator Sanders embraces the socialist moniker, co-opting the term, and using it to his advantage. Senator Sanders is vehemently opposed to the influences of big money on elections and a tenant of Senator Sander’s platform is to completely rail against corporations buying elections in a country that mostly views corporations favorably. The dichotomy of these ideologies does not fit with Senator Sander’s current standing
Now, back to our 'writer Doyla ' and his claim [make American hate again] when Reagan came on the scene to run against a then failed president, [Carter] the left wing media, [the only media at that time] along with the Democrat party, filled the air and the air-waves with all kinds of hate. At that time they claimed there were more moderate Republicans to vote for. e.g. Anderson, Baker, Dole, Bush. Deja Vu As our 'writer ' says,” Candidates who tried to offer a sunnier vision, Carson, Kasich and “Bush.” The 'sunnier ones ' just sat back and let the left wing rant and rave.
The recent events of the 2016 presidential election have turned the race into an absolute nightmare. The American voters have whittled the candidacy down to two candidates of completely polar views on nearly everything. Clinton is on the far left and Trump is on the far right, which generates a precariously balanced peace between them. One little gust of accusation and everything comes tumbling down. Consequently, the presidential race has been bitterly fought, and both campaigns have utilized cheap tactics to attempt to pull ahead of the other candidate.
It showed how campaigns ruin an individual’s ability to continue to do what is right and not deviate off their set principles in life. Tracy Flick with the tearing down of the posters, and Jack Stanton with the information about his opponent. Both are acts not within their character, and one cause of this change may have been the campaign. In Bulworth, Jay Bulworth is a very unique candidate, who has a huge exaggeration of a change in the film. Any individual who wants to be reelected wants to run just as great, or even greater of a campaign to win the election as they once did.
A big problem we have right now in the United States are the presidential candidates. A big threat to our country is Donald Trump winning the election. He is just an overall bad guy, he is racist and sexist. He said that if he wins, he will deport immigrants back to where they came from, which is really unthoughtful, especially since his wife is mexican. If Donald Trump wins the election and does all the things he said he would do, then the citizens of United States would definitely rebel against the government.
Nicholas Kristof’s “3 Peerless Republicans for President: Trump, Carson and Fiorina”, deems the leading candidates from the Grand Old Party unfit for presidency, and the public’s fixation with them a temporary affair. Multiple previous controversies being detailed, and the use notably bleak statistics help undermine the contenders while urging voters to look elsewhere. Kristof utilizes harsh diction with a simple, yet critical tone to denounce the trio, and further his own
Numerous Americans would agree, 2015 was not a pleasant year in the United States. Although there have been strides in technology and civil rights, tensions rose in the Middle East and countless mass shootings occurred. As the 2016 election nears, a myriad of presidential candidates are promising a better future, but one, in particular, has caught the eye of the nation. The billionaire’s name is Donald Trump and he is the GOP’s front runner. Supporters believe in Trump’s campaign slogan that he will “Make America Great Again”, but there also those who have condemned him as well as his ideas.
Because of all those factors, it was easy for Donald Trump to gain power in the GOP and destroy it for years to come. To conclude, Donald Trump’s rise to the top of the GOP campaign field has surprised nearly everyone. He has been a channel for anger, and an annoyance to GOP leaders and millions of people around America. While other forces, like the media, have also contributed to his success, the main factor in his rise is a GOP that is in desperate need of reform to meet the needs, wants, and ambitions of a rapidly changing
Not to mention he is attacking all of the people that deserve it: (for example) the liberal media, the establishment, and the president. But Trump is also attacking conservatives too. For instance, Trump does not need to agree with Ted Cruz on everything, but what is unacceptable is how Trump treats Cruz and other conservatives like him with as much disdain and anger as he does the liberal media and the establishment. Most Trump supporters justify their support for Trump by saying that
Donald Trump’s favorability and popularity are growing as a GOP candidate for the 2016 presidential election. Over the last month Trump has given us messages on immigration, the economy, and Washington. His messages have taken him straight to first place among Republicans nationwide (Borger, 2015). Trump’s message on immigration certainly stirred up controversy, especially with his comments towards illegal immigrants and Hispanics. Sen. Marco Rubio, who is another GOP candidate, and of Hispanic descent, found Trump’s comments offensive, inaccurate, and divisive.
A prominent pollster once said, “When does the pursuit of victory exact to a higher price? When does dishonesty distort democracy?” Politicians, political parties or media that fail to condemn these tactics — as well as broadcasters that air these ads and the consultants that make them — are all complicit in the Koch’s immorality. We as American’s should not stand idly by while the Kochs and their Republican henchman trash this country with their false and mislead- ing
