One day, Donald Trump is against the Bureau of Land Management and federal control of land in western states. The next day, he supports the feds.
One day, he is against funding for Planned Parenthood. The next day, he is for it.
One day, he wants to bring Syrian refugees to the U.S. The next, he is opposed to the idea.
One day, he says tax the rich. The next day, he says lower taxes.
One day, he basically starts a war of words with Mexico; then he says they are our friends.
One day, he says deport all illegals. The next day, he says plan to bring them back — which is illegal.
One day, he suggests we start a trade war with China. The next day, he is against restrictive tariffs.
Last night, he said we should all get greedy for America — real greedy. But before, he promised the government was going to take care of everybody’s health care.
It’s fair to say that Trump is all over the map, but it’s no accident. He works the crowd. He can sense what people want to hear.
He whips up emotions. He is playing off our fears and our anger. He is a salesman. He is not selling Americanism, or liberty, or even capitalism, as are Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
He is selling Trump.
And the trouble is, the mass of buyers don’t even know what they are getting.
One day we’ll wake up to an Obama third term and wonder what hit us.
