Why I will vote for Donald Trump

May 13, 2016

If your response is going to be anything related to ‘no one cares what you think’ stop reading now and go elsewhere. You’re coming here either interested in why, or to add to your list of reasons you don’t like me. I’m ok with both.

 

I’ve known Mr. Trump for a little over a decade. Our first encounter, and subsequent encounters, had to do with his request for me to appear on the apprentice.

We spoke at length every time we got together.

I realized very quickly this was a man decisive in action and confident in his ability.

I also realized that regardless of his net worth, he worked his ass off. He didn’t have time for 8 hours sleep each night, too much to be done.

So why will I vote for him? Here’s a few reasons why and none of them pertains to me just not wanting to vote for someone else.

  1. I trust him. I don’t agree with him on many things, that’s cool. I also know that there is and never will be a candidate anywhere that I will agree with on everything. That candidate doesn’t exist. If you say it does I think that makes you a sheep, someone afraid to have or voice an original, albeit unpopular, opinion at times.
  2. While I don’t agree with him there are two incredibly important things he possesses that neither candidate on the Soviet ticket do. He loves this country. You can laugh, you can mock, but you also are full of crap if the current administration has ever given you the confidence that they love this nation above all else. He will protect my family, and my loved ones. I say that because Mr Trump is where he is for one major reason. He’s been successful because he understands that surrounding yourself with smart people and listening to them, then parsing ideas and deciding, is how you win. Not all the time, but most of the time. When he says he will ‘make the military great’ he means “I’m going to create a group of men and women I trust to rebuild the worlds greatest armed forces and then insure that you and your family are protected BEFORE looking out for the interests of others”.
  3. I firmly believe that to know the real heart and soul of a man you look at his children. Who are they, what are they, and how do they act. I’ve never, even for a second, heard his children speak with anything but respect, courtesy, integrity and confidence. While you may think they are ‘spoon fed’ rich kids, experience tells me they have busted their asses to make their own way and be their own people.

 

Let me also comment on you frauds in the liberal media.

Mr Trump doesn’t want to ‘ban all muslims’ from entering the nation. Mr Trump doesn’t want to ban mexican immigrants from coming here.

No, Mr Trump wants to halt, dismantle and rebuild a horrifically corrupt, broken and useless immigration system. This current administration has made no bones about ‘disarming’ both our border patrol and our first responders in a rush to make sure everyone, even criminals, don’t have their rights infringed on.

But your liberal agenda has you lying your asses off to a group of people too lazy to do the work on their own, to listen and decide on their own.

But you knew that, just like you know Hillary Clinton is as guilty as the day is long, and as responsible for the deaths of 4 Americans, including an ambassador she was sworn to protect.

What terrifies you now? I think it’s the fact people have decided to stop making you their ‘go to’ for news. You cannot be trusted anymore, you have openly talked down to and mocked the ‘common’ citizen that they’re finally standing up and telling you to pound sand.

Those that still listen and believe you, and the massive amount of misinformation you publish are the lazy sheep and apathetic folks who will pull a lever for the felon or the socialist come next election.

 

I do want Mr Trump to stop the name calling, I do want him to start being much more specific. But that’s just me and my opinion. I love that he gets it. What do I mean by that? I mean if you heard his initial tax proposal and recently heard his talk around changing that, you understand unlike the liar in chief, he gets that what’s going to happen is far too complicated to guarantee anything until you sit in the oval office. He won’t pander, and that alone sets him apart from 99% of the corrupt entrenched old white gov’t.

 

You’ve managed to elect people that want to shred the 2nd Amendment while being surrounded by an armed detail

You’ve managed to elect people who demanded a disaster of a health care system, while they themselves asked for, and received, exemptions from that very same broken down piece of junk.

You’ve managed to elect people who honest to God believe you can pass legislation that will make criminals NOT be criminals, and you BELIEVE that!

Your media went on a campaign to destroy a woman that absolutely loves this nation in Gov Palin. You have made people believe she actually said “I can see Russia from my house”.

They’re our next-door neighbors. And you can actually see Russia, from land, here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.”

That’s what she said you frauds. You rant and rave about ‘racists’ commentary around the First Lady and their daughters yet you laughed, mocked and trivialized when the public embarrassed and tried to humiliate Bristol Palin.

You would honest to God have the public believe that one of the most evil, despicable corrupt lying phonies ever to walk this earth, should be the democratic nominee for the highest position in this land.

The ONLY reason I wanted to see Mrs Fiorina, or Mrs Palin, or Condolezza Rice involved was to finally have this nation see what a true woman who can lead looks and sounds like on the same stage.

You’ve made folks believe a woman who helped destroy the lives of the women her husband assaulted and was accused of rape by, is actually a champion of womens rights.

I’m with ya on the Trump issue around his commentary about women. I think it’s uncomfortable for me so I would imagine it is for women, but again i tell you, look at his daughter and decide if he actually knows how to treat women. His wife? His former wife? Any of them come out and complain?

You college folks in love with Mr Sanders, a man I think is too far left for election in the Soviet Union I will say this.

Do your homework. His love of the “Nordic Model” is understandable, who wouldn’t like free stuff.

Let me give you a hint about how that might work.

It CANNOT SCALE from a policy covering 6-10 million people to covering 300+ million people in a country with 19+ trillion in debt and the worlds largest defense budget.

It is mathematically IMPOSSIBLE.

I know it sounds great, hell free stuff always does but you seem to have forgotten one of life’s most endearing and true cliches.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is

 

So rant and moan and whatever all you want, but the reasons I am voting for Mr Trump is easy.

 

I trust him when he says he will put this country above everything else as a priority in decision making

I trust him to create a team of military minds that will keep me safe

I trust him to destroy a corrupt and broken immigration system and remake it with one that works.

I trust that at every crucial point, when a decision has to be made, he will make the decision that’s best for our nation, and not the best for votes.

 

I trust him over a women who lied her ass off about ‘landing under fire’ only to have video footage of her lazily walking off of Marine One.

Stolen valor much?

I trust him to undo the massive damage created by the most divisive group of people in my lifetime, who have managed in 7+ short years to undo hundreds of years and thousands of lives worth of work.

 

So Mr Trump, all I ask is that you keep your promise to me, and to Americans, and put us above all else when you become the 45th President of the United States of American.

I’m proud my family served in so many ways  and so many wars that we can still have a process to elect a person to lead us.

God Bless you and God Bless the United States

Curt

    “soviet ticket” … that level of juvenile hyperbole simply makes your otherwise thoughtful post seem petty and stupid. We may not agree with the social revolutionaries but they are not soviets… this is akin to-the-left that considers anything coming from conservatives as “nazi”.

      I thought it was spot on. What is the difference between a Democrat and a socialist exactly? Soviet has good connotative meanings that are a perfect fit for Hillary and Bernie. Besides calling a conservative a Nazi is stupid. Nazis were socialists.

      I agree that ” Soviet ticket” is juvenile, puerile, childish, and, well, moronic. I disagree that the rest of the post is much better. This clown is a socialist when it means the State will guarantee his loans; beyond that he’s clueless. His idiotic Benghazi reference makes clear that he knows nothing beyond what Fox feeds him. If he didn’t have those rings on the page he’d be just another ignorant blowhard at the end of the bar. Come to think of it, he is; he just gets more page views.

    • May 16, 2016 8:07 pm

      Social revolutionaries? Is that all you think the Progressives are? Curt is 100% correct in calling them Soviets. They want Big Government to control people’s thoughts, actions and futures, completely. They want Big Government to be everyone’s daddy, mommy and grandparents. They want total control. Just look at what’s going on in the higher education facilities to know where these soviets reside. They are the blueprint for the soviet takeover, via their ‘micro-aggression, safe-spaces and political correctness’ BS. They want to destroy the traditional family because that is the cornerstone of Western civilization, even it if means ‘normalizing’ sexual deviants in the process. Next they’ll start pushing paedophilia as ‘normal’. Anything to weaken and demoralize sane people. And if you think Hillary or Bernie aren’t using this platform to push their failed soviet ideology, or if you think they won’t continue to push these platforms once they’re in office, then I have a bridge to sell you.

        @schillingtheschmuck – and you are the prime example of a stereotypical liberal left wing sheep – you cannot form an intellectual comment, argument or rebuttal to an idea or argument that is not in agreement with your own. You result to the “bully tactics” that your left wing brethren hypocritically try to tell everyone else they should not do. Kick rocks until you educate YOURSELF. By your comment you sound like the one with the experience of being the monkey in the zoo shitting in your own cage, and wiping your piss all over the place to mark your territory. If you cannot add anything constructive to a conversation other than your uneducated belittling comments, you are part of the problem. Your comments are even less thought provoking or conversation worthy than those you belittle. Again, YOU are the problem.

      Hillary is not just a socialist, she was directly mentored by the leading American communist of the 20th century, Saul Alinsky, who was the American Gramsci. Like Gramsci, he diverged from the party and turned communism in a new direction, away from the goal of violent take-over and towards take-over via what Gramsci’s followers called “the long march through the institutions.”

      Their first triumph was the Alinsky communist Obama, who spent his entire pre-electoral career in the employ of communist lobbying groups founded by the direct students and acolytes of Alinsky, making Obama one of the few paid professional communists in the history of the nation. Hillary would make it two Alinsky communists in a row.

      McNair is a paid Media Matters shill, brain dead from the day he was born. This was the big project of Obama’s “regulatory Czar” Cass Sunstein, the most illiberal man to call himself liberal. He wanted government to pay an army of online brownshirts to jump into the comments on every conservative voice and just throw garbage. That task was taken up by Media Matters, which has meetings with the Obama White House every day to coordinate targets and strategy. This idiot McNair does the “concern troll” routine. Disgusting trash.

    • May 18, 2016 11:47 am

      There are plenty more people that agree with you Arthur Radley ! He not only spoke the truth, which obviously the Liberals can not handle, but made very clear points ! I think some of these Liberals need to look up ” The Clinton Chronicles ” on You Tube before they pull that lever come November. I feel that is the problem, they blindly follow whoever is the front runner for the Democratic party and do not research the canidate nor do they listen to the proposed policies ! As far as Sanders goes, well, what can we say ? Lol. RESEARCH people ! Trump is undeniably an extremeley successful businessman and I have 100% faith in him that he can and WILL turn this country around . He sure has his work cut out for him since this last 7+ years has been nothing but a disaster !

    I’ve loved Trump for years. He’s always been outspoken, but he says what everyone else is thinking and saying to their friends. I think we need to pass a law that says no lawyers can hold public office. Running this country is a business, and it need big business know how to make the changes we need to survive.

    Just let me interject here…I’ve been a die-hard, bleeding heart, liberal Democrat since JFK ran in 1960 and I was 14 years old. But there’s no way I can vote for either Democrat in this race. Hillary talks about bringing Bill back out of retirement to help in creating more jobs. What a joke…he signed the NAFTA Treaty that sent our jobs to Mexico and started this whole “outsourcing” epidemic. Bill is also the one who closed military bases and cut back our defense budget, so the National Guard, which is supposed to protect us here, instead is overseas fighting. Where’s our Army?

    Hillary wants to hold gun manufacturers liable for shootings? Yup, that’s a lawyer for you. Put the manufacturers in this country out of business and send more people to the unemployment lines. Bring in those cheap, made in China guns for our military!

    I have a friend who left Germany 20 years ago with her husband and 2 sons. They came here legally. They bought a home, owned a successful business, and paid their taxes every year. They wanted so much to become U.S. Citizens. They were told they would need an immigration attorney to get the necessary paperwork done. They paid an attorney over $50,000 and after 15 years still did not have their green cards!! The husband suddenly suffered a massive heart attack and died instantly. His wife called the attorney and he told him all the paperwork was null and void, and she would have to start the process over and pay him all the same fees he had previously charged them!! She talked to two other attorneys who told her the same thing. 40 years I worked for a doctor who immigrated here from Argentina. I helped him file all his INS paperwork, study for his citizenship exam, etc. He never hired a lawyer!! He and I did it all. That’s the biggest reason people come in here illegally now. They can’t afford to pay the attorneys now required to complete the paperwork!!!

    And, even before Trump brought it up, I said I was appalled at the thought of Bill running around the White House, again, with all those young, impressionable interns. Hillary is using women, she’s lying to women, and she can’t be trusted.

    Donald Trump has never smoked, doesn’t drink, never done drugs, and while his kids were growing up, they were never allowed to either. Many years ago when the kids were still in college, they were participating in an interview with Trump by one of the Networks. The reporter asked the kids if they ever broke their father’s rules while at college. Donald Jr. admitted to having a beer with friends once in a while, since Dad wasn’t around to see it. In fact I think it’s funny that he now owns a winery a few miles from where I live. Someone once made fun of Donald Jr. having a tough life jetting all around the country in his father’s plane. DJ made it very clear that he’s never allowed on the Trump jet if his father is not travelling with him. When he has to fly somewhere on Trump business, the company pays only for him to fly coach. If he has enough points, he can upgrade himself.

    So, my post is so long, but I’m so tired of all these ignorant people, who don’t do their homework and vote for candidates, or issues, that they really no nothing about!!

      Actually, paying to shoot an elephant helps to raise money to conserve the rest. Conservationists routinely have to cull herds to keep them healthy, so if someone pays to do the same job, then what’s the problem? Grow up and get a life. You sound like a miserable person.

    I used to be your biggest fan when you were a pitcher for the Phillies, and even pulled hard for you when you tried to make an MMO. I have the ticket stub from your 319 SO game in 1997 framed on my wall next to a ball you signed at an event that same year. Now I just think you’re a crazy kook and the 15yo inside of me isn’t sure how to feel about that but he knows that it’s not a good thing.

    Anyone that actually has faith that a man who can not even properly run a business without relying on his expertise, and experience, in figuring out how to bail out while making a profit should be running a country. America is not another hollow company that he can fail at and just hide behind a few lawyers while someone else ends up footing the bill.

    Many people love this country, but that in no way makes them qualified to run it. In fact, it is my opinion that the people that state how much they love this country the loudest are usually the ones that are too close minded to make proper decisions on ay topic and just make up their mind and reject all other ideas. They use their “love” for something as an excuse for why they have ruined that thing by ignoring logical, and thoughtful opinions and input from others with a different opinion than their own despite how obviously correct the other person is. Trump has shown repeatedly that he does not take others opinions, which the whole point of the Cabinet, and he has shown he is not very well educated in foreign policy and at times can almost be racist in trying to show how un-racist he is. He prefers to just go by his “gut feeling” and lets others to pay for the mistakes. This time the “others” are the American people.

    Let’s say your character assessment of the man is accurate. What makes you think he is capable of doing any of the things you say he wants to do? There’s a reason we have only ever elevated two people to the presidency without prior experience in government: Washington and Eisenhower, both of whom won military campaigns. Donald Trump will have no idea what the hell he’s doing on day one. I’ll expect you to have some answers for us on day two.

    How refreshing it will be to have a President who loves this Country and her People. Who knows Globalism is slavery. What a refreshing article full of wisdom and facts. Trump is not perfect, no human can be but he is a True Patriot. The Border Patrol wants him. Manufacturing wants him. College grads who’s like to move out of Mom and Dad’s want him and numerous Police Unions , including Sherrif Joe want him. A Military Poll this week had active Military want him. That’s a lot of hard working people with deep responsibilities wanting Mr. Trump. That tells me more than any tabloid hit piece our Pravda Media runs.
    Trump. The People’s President. Reagan 2.0. Nothing counts unless you vote and talking about it isn’t enough.

  24. May 13, 2016 8:07 pm

    Well said Curt – Agree! The knee-jerk antipathy, wrapped in outright lies about Mr. Trump’s statements, directed toward Mr. Trump reveals the deep fear he sends into those milking the DC corruption gravy-train – BECAUSE they know he’s going to change the game, clean house and kneecap their rigged schemes.

    Tax policy is irrelevant (except for need for a 1 page return), and used by socialists to foment class warfare. Until DC spending and the bureaucracy perpetuating itself are choked with a fundamental repurposing of the Federal Government to its core and essential Constitutional roles – the rest to be transferred to the states.

  29. May 13, 2016 8:19 pm

    Congratulations on your great career / accomplishments so far!! I’m sorry that you were a victim of ESPN’s radical leftists agenda. Thank you for speaking truth. The truth is the truth even if one doesn’t believe it. Same as a lie. It just never ceases to amaze me how the media bias is not called out more often. Trump is changing that as he is exposing their bias – a free independent press would never have let the leftist get away with so much including the former Sec State lying to those four families when the remains of their loved ones were arriving on US soil, 2 days after 9/11. That alone disqualifies her from being a city hall Council woman much less POTUS. BTW – loved the “Soviet ticket” snark too…nice!!

    “But your liberal agenda has you lying your asses off to a group of people too lazy to do the work on their own, to listen and decide on their own.”
    I find this statement troubling because you post memes that attribute quotes to people who obviously didn’t make them. And if common sense didn’t clue you in to that fact a simple Google search would. Are you lazy or no better than the people you’re criticizing?

Trump also has great kids which says a lot about him

  46. May 14, 2016 12:34 am

    Schilling uses poor grammar, illogical thinking, clear biases, a persecution complex and complete ignorance of facts to try to justify his support for Trump. There are so many inane statements in his rant that virtually everything he wrote is pathetic. This is a tortured soul who is no longer a star because of athletic skills are destined to leave someone who is gifted with them, not earned by him. His drop in stature though is more for his disgusting statements, nasty personality and let’s not forget his stupidity in losing millions in a shady get rich scheme that backfired. He’s an ignorant ass who probably doesn’t know that 13 American embassies were attacked under George Bush’s Presidency, and quite a few more than 4 people were killed. Then there is the Iraq War, started with many lies and greedy intentions of war profiteering, that killed many thousands of American soldiers and many tens of thousands of innocent Iraqi citizens. His support of Palin is more bizarre, she could have been a heartbeat away from the Presidency, a woman, who didn’t complete her governorship and still says the stupidest statements ever uttered by any politician in memory. Her drunken tirades make Schilling’s hateful comments sound less vicious than they really are. He keeps screwing up because of that fat mouth, and he should stick the bloody sock in it.and should never be allowed to work in any MLB capacity, except maybe cleaning the locker rooms.

    Hey Curt! Bravo man. You are a national treasure! You and I sent a few tweets to each other about the Toronto v Texas post season match up. We disagreed but you were cool enough to have an honest debate despite that fact. I could not agree with you more. You are right about everything from Trump to terrorists.

I came here to read you with an open mind but your mind is completely closed. You’re not objective at all and Fox News is the king of misinformation and twisting the truth. You’re what’s wrong with America Curt Schilling. Everyone knew you couldn’t keep your mouth shut and would get fired by ESPN. I believe based on your writings you’re extremely misinformed. Would love to hear what former teammates think of your political opinions. I bet not much!

  51. May 14, 2016 6:46 am

    Lets be clear: Curt Schilling is great at taking a ball and throwing it, but other than that his decision making skills are that of a 3rd grader.

    Trust: Over 75% of what he has said has been proven to be either false, mostly false, or completely wrong. If you include “half truths”, that brings the number up to 92%. This isn’t an “opinion” by the “liberal media”, this is fact (http://goo.gl/t5efc1).

    Love of country: lets start with military spending, which for some reason conservatives think “the more the better” (of course they will argue against that when it comes to education). The reason military budgets went down over the last few years is due to us leaving Iraq & Afghanistan (a war based on fraudulent paper work and lies from people who claim to want “less government”) and the sequestration which was a bipartisan matter of politicians who act like children. As for any of the Amendments: President Obama was a constitutional law professor. You don’t take up that role unless you really like that document. Mr Schilling your statement is both childish and completely false. You regurgitate right wing media lies because they sound good, when really I think you’re just impressed because those people still have jobs.

    Business: it makes sense that Schilling – who makes horrible business decisions – would think that someone like Donald Trump is “successful”. They make the same bad decisions. The only difference is Trump is better at bankruptcy than Schilling. Here we have a conservative blogger who is going to vote for someone who flat out said they’ll default on loans and destabilize a world economy. This isn’t just some video game company in the arm pit of New England, this is the US dollar, which is the most reliable economic metric in the world.

    I’m not surprised that Curt Schilling would pick party over country. He’s like an addict who knows that even if its going to hurt him, he’ll continue to make bad decisions like voting for the biggest fraud the political and economic worlds have ever seen.

  52. May 14, 2016 7:02 am

    A lot of people are ignorant fools with short term memories to actually think old dog Hillary would be good for the country. Numerous people have been killed or are missing because of the Clintons and their numerous scandals. If the average person did a faction of what they’ve been doing for decades, they’d be in jail a long time ago. A simple lie is easy to forgive and forget but when it’s the Clinton’s way of life someone has to draw a line and say, that’s enough and they need to just fade away. That hag’s daughter is raking in millions from the Clinton Foundation which was supposed to be a charity but it’s being used like a trust fund for Chelsea. She has had her State Department staff remove security labels from emails and sent them on her unsecured private email server and has even had them call her on unsecured phone lines discussing government business. That old dog Hillary and her group of cronies need to go to prison for putting the country at risk. Trump is the best choice to fixing the damage Odumbo and the Clintons have to this country.

    Curt–
    I asked my college and high school aged children about this “Soviet Union”
    of which you speak. They said it stopped being a country about 25 years ago.

    There’s a “Russia” now. It’s run by Vladimir Putin, a dictator-like “President” whom Donald Trump admires greatly.

    You seem like a good guy and you indisputably belong in Cooperstown. You’d probably be a lot of fun to sit down and have a beer with. (Offer’s open next time you’re in the Boston area!) But you’re too smart to be spewing some of this crap about Obama. No matter what you think about the job he’s done (and I’d argue he’s done a pretty good job, given the steaming bag of shit he was handed), he’s an honorable public servant whose commitment to this country should be above reproach. What makes you think he doesn’t love the country he spent most of his adult life serving? How could you hate a country that elected you President twice? What about his style of leadership doesn’t match the “surround yourself with smart people and listen to their advice” approach that you say Trump would take?

    Also, Sarah Palin loves public service so much, she couldn’t be bothered to finish her one term as governor before ditching her home state to spin up a reality show. She’s clearly high as a kite in some of her more recent public appearances. And she’s not very bright.

    Still haven’t learned your lesson? How many Americans have to die for you people to start using rationality when it comes to picking a President? No one can use any form of real rationality and pick Trump. He has been proven to speak most lies. More lies than truth.

You will be persecuted for your views, your politics and putting America first. But to hell with them. Last I looked we still have the 1st Amendment. By the way, I happen to know A LOT OF WOMEN like myself that support Trump and are more than a bit disturbed by Mrs. Clinton’s acceptance and continued alliance with a man who not only cheats on her, but degrades her in front of the whole country. I don’t consider that feminism. My most of friends and I (like any self-respecting woman) would have kicked his ass out long ago. And now she wants to be President? I don’t think so.

    Kurt for #1 “I trust him”.

    What specifically leads you to believe that you should trust him? Is it that he has been on both sides of just about every issue?

    He has been “very pro choice” and “very pro-life”. He thinks women who have abortions should be punished and “of course not” (shouldn’t be punished). He calls for a ban on all muslims entering the country and then says it was “just a suggestion. He says it is none of your business what tax rate he pays. (Seems relevant since he also says tax rates are too high) He spent years spreading a rumor that Obama was not born in the US, but now “doesn’t want to talk about it”. He says he wants to stop businesses for “shipping jobs to China” but manufactured his clothing line in China. He said he was “self funding” but actually only lent the money to his campaign. Now he is taking donations from the same special interests as all the other politicians. (and can pay himself back)

    What makes you trust him, just because he is a bigot like you?

  66. May 14, 2016 5:20 pm

    Hey,

    I hate the #RegressiveLeft as much as anyone, but Trump is worse than Clinton (I might vote 3rd Party, I might vote Clinton, but I will not vote Trump).

    Here’s a slice of why:

    Trump University – He’s corrupt.
    Refusing to reveal tax returns – He lacks integrity.
    No clue on foreign policy – He’s naïve on how politics work.
    He sues too many people.
    He has thin skin.
    He waffles on every position, he’s a talented salesman, which is why he’s able to sell a bad product (Trump) despite his incompetence.
    If he becomes president he will veto like mad.
    He will reward toadies: “You kissed my ass so here, you run the Fed/Agriculture/Foreign Affairs etc.”
    Competence will matter, but not as much as it should, and he will not reward or even recognize legitimate criticism, and his vendettas will be more important, he’ll take revenge at the expense of the country.

    We have checks & balances so he will not lead us to ruin, but he will cause more harm than good to the US.

    Would I like him to run my business? Sure.
    Would I like him to run America? Hell no.

    • May 23, 2016 3:00 pm

      I fear that the checks and balances could fail the country. If elected, Trump will appoint the deciding vote to the Supreme Court. And if Trump is elected, that will likely mean that the House and Senate remain in the hands of the Republicans.

      Trump seems to have authoritarian, xenophobic, fascist tendencies and his followers love him for it. Who will stop him? The congress? The Supreme Court? The voters?

  74. May 14, 2016 7:34 pm

    Curt, your a pitcher. What the heck do you know about really “anything” except Baseball? And have you paid back Rhode Island yet for your debacle of a business you had? You’ve been fired twice from MLB and ESPN. You were hated by the Phillies and, from what I hear, every team you played for. Yes, you have rings. However, I thought your team won those not just you. Anyway, Trump is dividing, an epic liar, and would be shot within days of being President. I would of respected you more if you said you weren’t voting for anyone. Which is what I’m probably going to do, and I’m a Republican. Good luck trying to find a job. Maybe Fox will take you as a sports something and then you can slant everything towards your political beliefs which, in retrospect, nobody really cares about. Your a pitcher. You threw a baseball. Great lifetime achievement you leave behind for mankind.

    “But you knew that, just like you know Hillary Clinton is as guilty as the day is long, and as responsible for the deaths of 4 Americans, including an ambassador she was sworn to protect.”

    To say Clinton is responsible for deaths at the Benghazi tragedy is absolutely ridiculous and asinine, and is obviously being used against her for biased and unfair political reasons. People like Curt Schilling repeating it show a lack of understanding and a biased desire to condemn Clinton when in reality she is not responsible. This is akin to saying Colin Powell is responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, when in reality, it is beyond his control.

  76. May 14, 2016 8:39 pm

    I trust him when he says he will put this country above everything else as a priority in decision making… I trust that at every crucial point, when a decision has to be made, he will make the decision that’s best for our nation, and not the best for votes.

    I simply disagree. From what he has said during the campaign, as well as his actions beforehand, what I see is a guy who is all ego. He will do whatever is in HIS OWN best interest, and/or add to his celebrity. I can sort of see the appeal of his “IDGAF” attitude, because it makes him seem like a no-bullshit guy. The problem is, he truly DOESN’T give a f**k about anyone but himself/his brand.

    I trust him to create a team of military minds that will keep me safe

    Again, I just disagree. The only military track record we have for Donald Trump is his successful evasion of the draft during the Vietnam Era—four student deferments, and then when he couldn’t do those anymore, he got himself classified 1y (last group in line, only called up in case of grave national emergency). Even that was too close for his comfort, though, so he got someone to declare him 4F (physically unfit/unable to serve). And after all that, he has the nerve to criticize John McCain’s war record? (I’m no big fan of McCain, but I absolutely respect the fact that he endured 5 years of being tortured in the Hanoi Hilton in service of the USA).
    That stuff aside, I’m aware of what DJT is saying as a candidate about how he’ll “make the military great.” News flash: our Military IS great. How great? The United States is by far the most powerful military in the history of the world. Our total military capability/firepower is easily the greatest in the world. It is true that in the last few years under Obama our military budget decreased, but decreased to what? The most recent U.S. military budget made public is about equal to the next seven biggest military spenders in the world COMBINED. China, the #2 military budget, spends 1/3 of what we spend. If you figure, “well, we should be spending that much, we’re the wealthiest country, so we can afford it,” let me put it this way: again, most recent budget numbers we have (2015) show that Defense/Military got $598.5 billion, which is 54% of discretionary federal budget spending (and that number doesn’t even include Veterans’ benefits). The second-biggest allocation is Government operations, at 6%.

    I trust him to destroy a corrupt and broken immigration system and remake it with one that works.

    How exactly is he gonna do that? The only policies I’ve heard him propose are 1) Calling for an immediate block on Muslims entering the United States “until we figure out what’s going on.” You do you, but I cannot bring myself to trust a guy who plainly states that he doesn’t know what’s going on. In any case, he’s now trying to take it back, saying it was “just a suggestion.” Hey, maybe he really is a true politician, because that sounds like every bullshitting national candidate I’ve ever heard. 2) He said that he’s going to build a wall along the entire Mexico-U.S. border, and it’ll have a big beautiful door in it, or something? Anyway, it’s a totally ludicrous idea, and I’ll give you at least enough credit to assume you don’t need me to explain why.

    You trust Donald Trump to do a good job as President, on behalf of regular people? Okay then, I guess. I just see a guy who is about as far from regular people as it gets. A guy who truly believes that he is smarter than literally anybody. A guy more thin-skinned about criticism than any opera diva. A guy who is used to steamrolling anyone he has to in order to get his way. Guess what: no American president ever has always gotten their way. Our system of government doesn’t work that way. President Donald Trump would be a shitshow of unprecedented proportions, and people who voted for him would later deny it if they could.

      I believe you are overlooking one president who has nearly always gotten his way………… Seems to me Obama has done anything and everything he has wanted to do, when he wanted to do it, and the way he wanted to do it, (at the tax payers expense), with or without the approval of Congress. (Or he would throw one of his famous temper tantrums, if he didn’t get his way.) Maybe you should check the personal expenditures (again at the tax payers expense) of the Pres. and his family since he has been in office. It tops, by far, any other president that has ever held that office.

  77. May 14, 2016 10:52 pm

    Mr. Schilling, I have to say that I’m apoplectic at most of your comments! Your candidate is a bigoted blowhard who is not even remotely qualified to become the next commander-in-chief. He touts himself as being this hot shot businessman but, seemingly, bankruptcies follow him around like toilet paper stuck to his shoe. Even your own party hierarchy has made no bones about showing their antipathy towards their new standard bearer and, clearly, he’s split the party in two. If your own party can’t stop the infighting, how in the heck do you expect them to rally the country behind them? Mr. Trump has alienated damn near everyone with his nonsensical diatribes and, in my view, the coming election is going to be a significant embarrassment both for him and for the party…or what’s left of it. By the way, I can’t let your comments about Sarah Palin go unchallenged either. I don’t think that Mrs. Palin was shafted by the media as you purport but, rather, by her own naivete. I watched a number of her speeches {such as they were} along with a number of her interviews as well back when she was on John McCain’s ticket. Say what you will but, night after night on the six o’clock news, the woman showed herself to be a poorly educated, functionally illiterate idiot who shot herself in the foot more times than I can count. If there’s a high school out there who gave her a diploma, they should be ashamed of themselves. Of all the candidates McCain had available to choose from, how on earth he chose her is completely beyond me. Now she’s jumped up out of the woodwork trying to catch a ride with Mr. Trump. She and Michelle Bachman are two of a kind. They both thought that their beauty pageant looks would take them wherever they wanted to go. Then, they opened their mouths and started to speak. What happened next…well, it’s pathetic, really…

  78. May 15, 2016 1:43 am

    Ok Mr. Schilling, he is a fast ball for you. You are endorsing a person that is blatantly LYING to you and to EVERYONE. Do YOU really believe that he is going to deport 11- 13 million undocumented immigrants?? Do YOU really believe that he is going to come in and rip apart international trade agreements and replace them at will? Do you really believe that ALL Muslims will be banned from this country? Do YOU really believe that hard working Mexicans will no longer be able to send hard earned money back to their relatives in Mexico? Maybe Trump ought the tell you what you can or can’t do with your money. But wait, that’s government getting bigger and we DON’T want that. O yea, that wall is going to be built too…. and Mexico is paying for it. YOU and anyone else that believes any of the above should be examined for dementia!!!

    And while Trump is at it, since he will force all American companies to bring their jobs back to the U.S.A., HE OUGHT TO CLOSE DOWN ALL HIS INTERNATIONAL ENDEAVORS AND BRING ALL THOSE JOBS BACK HERE AS WELL. “Trump Enterprises LLC” is a business with branches all over the world. Wether it be a golf course, building or manufacturing… he should bring ALL those jobs back HERE. WE live in a world of international trade, i can guarantee you that if the USA closed ALL of its trading with every single country in this world… it would not take long for this great country to go down the tube. I recently sent my grandma $500 in Mexico so she could buy a new refrigerator. They got up in my uncles FORD F-150, drove to the nearest city, bought coffee at STARBUCKS, went to eat at McDONALDS, drove to a HOME DEPOT and bought a GENERAL ELECTRIC refrigerator…….i wonder how much of those $500 dollars ended back in the U.S economy directly and indirectly. MAYBE YOU CAN TELL ME!!!!!!

    Is it too soon to tell you that Mr.Trump will not be president? That all the signs lead to him not even wanting to be president for the ” People” ??? With the love for the popular opinions promoted and the admiration of his fearlessness to blurt out whatever comes to his mind, is humorous and very entertaining.

    For some reason some folks have come to take his campaign for presidency seriously. Donald Trump is entertaining…I love and admire Mr. Trump for his value as an entrepreneur.

    Politics is already a game within a game, and it scares me to think that so many folks just give in to it so easily, without critically thinking about the history of the ” swindle “.

    Whatever the case, this all very entertaining. He has managed to cover the minds, and better judgement of even the most highly educated folks who seem to be willing to be handled in the same manner as the undereducated, chaotic, and easily led folks… ( IJS) I’m Just Saying……

    The following is why I and millions of other African Americans will not be voting for Donald Trump this November. These words by James Baldwin speaking directly to Trump and his supporters some 50 plus years after the American Civil Rights Movement:

    “The American Negro has the great advantage of having never believed the collection of myths to which white Americans cling: that their ancestors were all freedom-loving heroes, that they were born in the greatest country the world has ever seen, or that Americans are invincible in battle and wise in peace, that Americans have always dealt honorably with Mexicans and Indians and all other neighbors or inferiors, that American men are the world’s most direct and virile, that American women are pure. Negroes know far more about white Americans than that; it can almost be said, in fact, that they know about white Americans what parents—or, anyway, mothers—know about their children, and that they very often regard white Americans that way. And perhaps this attitude, held in spite of what they know and have endured, helps to explain why Negroes, on the whole, and until lately, have allowed themselves to feel so little hatred. The tendency has really been, insofar as this was possible, to dismiss white people as the slightly mad victims of their own brainwashing.”

    Honestly, I would think about voting for him if he laid out the “how” of his plans. Meaning, if he went into detail about what he’s going to do. On his site, it’s just really broad strokes. Yes, I think he’s a buffoon and just a goof. But that’s not my main opposition (although it’s certainly enough.) I want him to be specific. And he hasn’t been, yet.

  89. May 16, 2016 10:24 am

    Mr. Shilling desperately needs to follow his own advice! When Mr. Shilling says, “I do want Mr Trump to stop the name calling”, he, Mr. Shilling needs to do same! Calling people you do not agree all sorts of names like liberal media, liar in chief, and other such labels, demeans Mr. Shilling and makes him sound like a person who is not interested in civil discourse. In fact, Mr. Shilling is not interested at all in civil discourse. It is all what Mr. Shilling wants to believe, never mind the facts. Mr. Shilling desperately wants to believe Mr. Trump’s seemingly endless changing of his views to suit the moment and the audience. As a registered REPUBLICAN for the last 35 years, it is sad to see this level of vitriol which can only win the argument by attempting to shout down or name call the opposition. What would Mr. Eisenhower, Mr. Lincoln, Mr. T Roosevelt have said? One hesitates to think!

  91. May 16, 2016 1:12 pm

    You had me at the phrase “Soviet ticket”. You also deserved a lot more than you got from ESPN. Suffice to say, I dropped them when they dropped you.

  92. May 16, 2016 1:21 pm

    Thanks for the sincerity. Well, I’ll tell you the ONE reason why I go around blogs supporting Trump trying to convince people to do anything they want BUT vote for him.

    1. I DON’T trust him. Not one little bit.

    Now, let me explain why I don’t trust him. This is a man that quite clearly one day says one thing, and on the next sentence he may say the very opposite. I’ve watched him many times, and he’s the classic con man. He watches people’s reactions and tells them what they want to hear. I’m sure that most people on the receiving end of that, get the impression that this is a man that understands you and is just the sort of man you like. A man that loves exactly the same things you love. But I’m sure he can give that impression to anyone.

    If he was honest and sincere, then why?
    1. He’s said three or four different things about major policy issues, like taxing the rich and minimum wage.
    2. He doesn’t want to release his tax returns. What is he trying to hide?
    3. Former workers in his casinos in Atlantic City say they won’t vote for him, and feel they were ripped off.
    4. Has said things so off-the-charts false that any normal person would know they’re false, like Ted Cruz’s father being involved in the Kennedy assassination, that Hillary Clinton does badly with women (when all the polls show otherwise), or that there are federal funds to get illegal immigrants to go through the border.
    5. Other Republican leaders like Ted Cruz and Mitt Romney haven’t simply called him a liar, but have five and ten-minute rants on what a con-man and fraud he is. This definitely isn’t politics as usual. Maybe they say it because it’s exactly what they think.

      Good arguments. I think you have Trump pegged. He was never particularly successful in business until he went on T.V., where he is apparently a natural entertainer (I have never watched more than a few minutes of his show). He’s not qualified to be president. He has no experience in public office or the military. He is divisive. He frequently resorts to personal attacks against others. He has been caught in quite a few lies, and to my knowledge he has never fessed up when called on a lie. He makes excuses rather than apologizing for inappropriate comments or behavior. None of these are signs of the sort of character we want in a person who would wield the awesome power of President of the United States.

  93. May 16, 2016 2:08 pm

    Curt, I was at the Game 6 bloody sock game in Yankee Stadium, and I will never forget your courage and heroism under such circumstances. I have defended you among my friends since then, every time you’ve uttered something silly, not based on what you said, but based on your gutty performance that night, and what that said about your character. But what your mouth & keyboard continually and increasingly say about your character is something else entirely.

    Your comments in your tweet that got you fired from ESPN didn’t come from an understanding about an issue or learning about an issue, speaking to people involved or who are affected by an issue, and then deciding where you came down on that issue, but it came from ignorance. Plain and simple ignorance.

    It isn’t surprising, therefore, that you would support possibly the most ignorant person in our nation’s history to become the nominee of one of our two major political parties. You’re entitled, of course, to support anyone you choose, but you, and the other people here who support you and Trump, aren’t entitled to be ignorant. Your reasons for supporting him—you trust him, why?; you think he loves the country, so that qualifies someone to be president?; and you think his kids are swell–sound like things an eight year old might come up with.

    I used to think, and still hope, you were far better than that.

    A Prophecy about the 45th President of the United States…

    Hi Curt,

    A few days ago, May 7, 2016, I listened to the Mark Taylor interview on the TruNews YouTube channel about his April 28, 2011 prophecy about New York business man Donald Trump and his successful bid for the presidency of the United States.

    In 2011 Mark thought that Donald Trump might announce pursuit of the U.S. presidency in 2012, but when Mr. Trump did not announce, he put his written prophecy, which he calls a “word” from the Lord, into his files.

    It was not until 2015 that Mark realized that the prophecy was intended for 2016.

    Here is the url for the entire 1 hour 9 minute discussion on TruNews with the url for the audio and the entire transcript to read as you listen to the discussion with Mark Taylor on April 18, 2016.

    The problem we have now is that everyone has isolated themselves and surrounded themselves only with people who agree with them. We read web sites that reinforce our opinions, we have FB friends who share our opinions, etc. I consider myself somewhat a rarity now because I have both liberal and conservative friends and think the extremes on both sides are ridiculous.

    The media contributes to this because they focus more on fights than on compromise. For example, most people aren’t hard conservative or hard liberal though you’d never know that anymore from the web or TV. I think people should be allowed to own guns BUT, like cars, should be required to show that they know how to use them and take a basic gun safety class. I don’t like the idea of hundreds of people with NO training at all just walking around with deadly weapons. To liberals this makes me a “gun loving freak,” to conservatives I’m “trying to restrict the Second Amendment.” I just view my position as common sense.

    I really doubt Donald Trump is the total buffoon the media is making him out to be–he obviously knows how to function in the business world so can’t be that stupid. However, I also don’t think Hillary Clinton is the cynical murdering criminal the right wing paints her to be. I haven’t made up my mind yet who I will vote for. There’s something to be said for Hillary knowing how government works, protocols, etc. There’s also something to be said for getting someone with some business sense to untangle the mess our government has become. Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to rely on the media for any type of fair information about either candidate.

      What’s really important, I think, is for us to respect each other’s opinions, as you seem to do. When we disparage others for their opinions, we are being pretty arrogant. Who is to say who is right and who is wrong, in a situation where the information available is imperfect. That is to say, almost none of us know any of the candidates to any degree of intimacy where we can be 100% certain of their character and motivations. Yet, many of us speak with absolute certainty that is unwarranted. We would all do better to express our opinions but keep an open mind toward the opinions others – who knows, maybe they are right at least in some respects, and we could learn a thing or to. Also, by listening to others, we allow them to feel heard and respected, which reduces the distance between all of us and creates an environment where compromise can occur.

      Just my thoughts on the spur of the moment. I appreciate your thoughtful comment.

  98. May 17, 2016 10:37 am

    Why is it that those who disagree with you have to fill their comments with Ad Hominem attacks? Perhaps it is because they always want to CONTROL everyone – down to the size of Super Big Gulp you are allowed to drink. The screed is always “MANDATORY OR FORBIDDEN” — you MUST to this…you are NOT PERMITTED to do that. The fact that Donald Trump operates outside this rubric is beyond redemption for them. Because you, Mr. Shilling, are not willing to acquiesce to their world view, you are to be fired, heckled and smeared. I am horrified by the degree of personal attacks posted in this simple blog which clearly and cogently states YOUR opinion – as if you weren’t allowed to have one.

    Oh and one more thing…remember that when discussing communists and socialists — at least the communists have to work. A socialist just wants free stuff. But as Margaret Thatcher so aptly put it, “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

  99. May 17, 2016 12:30 pm

    About the only thing I disagree with are that he would respect and support Mrs. Fiorina. My family has had experience with her. I would ask her first husband about her. My husband worked for Mrs. Fiorina. I believe everything else in that article except that part about supporting her. No company is reaching out to hire her. If she were a great CEO, then they should be. She laid off my husband and over 60,000 others but required many employees to train their H1-Visa replacements. Sure my husband got severance because he was a good worker, but Fiorina’s severance, after she was fired, was unreal. She had two jets and a personal hairdresser travel with her. She was fired because she was called into a meeting at HP and told that she was to either share her power or leave. She chose to leave. Hence, she was fired but given an enormous retirement package. I do think it is nice that she got a face lift. The face lift looks great and the lip plumping is nice as long as it does not go bad as some surgery does. It is just that Trump was right about her face. He is not criticizing her face, but the coldness and lack of soul or conscience behind that face. Ask her ex husband about how she met Mr. Fiorina.

    “I trust him when he says he will put this country above everything else as a priority in decision making”

    You trust him to put country ahead of his own personal ambition and success? On what basis?

    “I trust him to create a team of military minds that will keep me safe”

    Do you mean like how Bush surrounded himself with “great military minds”, like Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz, who conducted the most disastrous strategic blunder in American military history since the Vietnam War and cost you me and our fellow taxpayers trillions of dollars with little to show for it? On what basis do you think Trump would surround himself with competent advisors, rather than people who would cater to his ego and tell him what he wants to hear?

    I believe that your judgement regarding Trump is clouded by your strong desire for the alternative he presents himself as. I think you are falling for a not very slick marketing campaign. I would advise you to be more skeptical.

    Likewise, I would advise you to be skeptical of claims that Democrats hate America. How likely is that true, in your experience, with the Democrats that you personally know? The world is more nuanced than the American-loving right vs. the America-hating “Soviet Party”, as you call them. If you think it’s not nuanced, then you are falling in love with a story which doesn’t match reality very well. It’s nice for things to be clearly black and white, but they almost never are, much as we might like them to be.

    Best wishes.
