Dear Republican Voters,
I hope you don’t mind that I’m reaching out, but something crazy is going on in your party. It’s not really something, it’s more like someONE. That someone I’m talking about – Trump.
We are little over a year out until the next election and Donald Trump is picking up steam. How is this even possible?
He’s running his campaign like a Comedy Central Roast. The more outrageous, the better his numbers. He’s insulted just about everyone – minorities, the other candidates, journalists, etc.
Yes Aimee, but the appeal is he’s not a career politician. He’s not politically correct and we love it.
Here’s where a wake up call needs to happen. I’ve watched and wrote about A LOT of elections. Every election has what I like to call a “Christian One-Upper”. A Christian One-Upper is the time in the election when politicians like to out Christian each other.
Not only does your favorite book have to be the Bible, you need to be able to quote scripture, choke up when talking about it and show how every political platform you have is embedded with the Judeo-Christian values this country was founded on. You need to do this in such a way that you can out-Christian your competitor. This is the formula to win any Republican nomination and ultimately any election.
Here is where Republican voters have lost their mind – Trump will never win a Christian One-Upper. He’s been married three times. He met his second wife while married to his first wife. The other day he called Anthony Weiner a sleaze ball. This is a true pot and kettle scenario. The only difference between Trump and Weiner is that when Trump met his 2nd wife, phones didn’t have the technology to take pictures.
When asked about his favorite Bible verse he said it was “too personal.”
Oh really. It’s too personal?
We’re asking about the Bible not if you takes Viagra to get an erection.
What happens when all of the voters who equated the Republican party with the party of Christianity suddenly have a front-runner that is less than Christ-like? How do they reconcile that the party of family values has a family with two ex-wives who can’t quote his favorite Bible verse?
I have no doubt that as the campaign goes on, Donald Trump will be able to quote his favorite Bible verse. It may just be his 11th commandment, “The Donald shall make as much money as possible.”
Yours for an entertaining election,
*If you are a Republican and are planning to vote for Trump, let me know if you think his lack of religion will hurt him in the election.
