You were a political novice and newcomer when you won the Libertarian Vice Presidential nomination in 2008. Why did you switch back to the Republican Party?
I was born a Republican-conservative. I started my political career at age 3, handing out literature for Barry Goldwater, in my fathers arms, outside a supermarket in Mt. Vernon, New York. I’ve always been a patriot and Republican. I always will be. I bleed Republican red, white and blue.
I left in 2008 because I was disillusioned and disgusted with George W. Bush’s irresponsible spending and debt explosion. I believed that a Republican’s job is to lower the debt while in office, not increase it by $4 trillion.
But in the end this is a 2-party nation. To save America you have to be part of the 2-party system. To save America, we must fight from within to save the GOP.
What do you think of Donald Trump and the 2016 GOP presidential primary so far?
Donald Trump is a good man. Donald and I send notes back and forth to each other. Donald endorsed “The Power of RELENTLESS”- I’m proud of his words on the back cover of my book. I believe the key to victory for the GOP is to no longer bring a knife to a gunfight. If we want to save America, we need to bring a nuclear weapon to the gunfight. Donald Trump’s mouth is a nuclear weapon!
Obama has run roughshod over the GOP leadership. Our own leaders seem helpless to stop him. People like John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and of course Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts are useless. With friends like them, who needs enemies? They’ve accomplished nothing. Worse, they are setting us backwards. I believe our Republican leaders in D.C. are either incompetent cowards, or they are being bribed, blackmailed, or both.
Into the fight steps Donald Trump. The knock on Donald is that Donald isn’t “nice” or well mannered. He’s sometimes offensive. Well I believe it’s time to stop being “nice.” “Nice” doesn’t work in politics. “Nice” guys finish last in politics. “Nice” is killing middle class jobs. “Nice” has led to negative GDP growth. “Nice” has led to more businesses closing than opening each day for the first time in America’s history. “Nice” has left the border wide open to an illegal alien invasion, the bankruptcy of America and a terrorist attack like 9-11.
Donald Trump isn’t afraid to put America first. He isn’t afraid to tell the truth. He isn’t afraid of what the media thinks. He isn’t afraid of pointing out how Obama’s socialist-like policies have damaged and destroyed capitalism, our economy, middle class jobs and American Exceptionalism.
Trump isn’t afraid to fight like our future is on the line- because he understands it is. He isn’t afraid to offend. He isn’t afraid to expose the cowards and frauds in his own GOP leadership for what they are. He refuses to be “politically correct” when he sees corruption and idiocy. He won’t back down or apologize for telling the truth. Donald Trump is most importantly RELENTLESS.
I think certain times demand certain kinds of people. Donald Trump may just wind up being the right man, with the right mindset, for these times.
