As we all know, the Donald Trump victory has defied the odds for millions and has brought forth a new era in American politics.
You may also know that despite my several positive views on Donald Trump, my reluctance to support his nomination was evident.
For the longest time, I have considered myself a “conservatarian” strategist that has long been associated the pro-liberty crowd via with utmost support for Rand Paul and Ted Cruz and similar individuals at the state and national levels.
Nevertheless, the movement of Trump into the nomination to the victory he has orchestrated tonight, my views on politics have become more humbling.
Considering this, my views have become nearly antiquated as my party has moved towards the nationalist rhetoric of Trump; however, my views are still relevant and it has proven tonight with Trump renewed motivation to be the best president he possibly can be.
This gives me hope for the future when we begin navigating the arena of public policy we come face to face with repealing key Obama regulations that have put a stranglehold on the economy. I have no reason to doubt that Donald Trump will not go back on his promises like other politicians before, either.
The reason for my sentiment regarding this is because Trump was a private citizen for most of his life with only himself and his family to please. He has taken that mentality to the campaign trail and focused it on one of the most outlandish but most successful political marketing schemes in the history of American politics. Trump seeks to Make America Great Again and he will do just that for the benefit of all.
I for one still hold my reservations on a few policy areas on Trump’s platform such as his protectionist idealism and policy stances on trade. Despite all that, I agree with trump on many other policy stances like eliminating job-killing regulation and advocating for a pro-business government that will allow for commerce to succeed.
Digressing, my views on how I observe voter return data or creating projections that suggest outcomes that are plausible on political trends that have been tested millions of times before are betrayed by the outcomes of this Presidential election. With that, I have realized that we cannot go into modern American politics and computer projections without having a key factor in mind: volatility in the electorate.
Donald Trump victory defies all scientific polling, the established punditry (guilty as charged), and leaves a country dumbfounded to the greatest political upset in modern times.
