#Trump2016: The #ParisAttacks Is Why I’m Endorsing @realDonaldTrump …For Now

I want to state first and foremost, that I do not think Donald Trump is the right person for the job. That honor goes to Scott Walker. However, as much as I hate to say it, Donald Trump may very well be the only person who can be President right now.

At the start of November 2015, I thought I could sit out the GOP primary without endorsing anyone. When the Florida primary came around I would vote for Scott Walker as a write-in and take pop-shots at Hillary Clinton whenever I could. The Paris Attacks woke me up and told me I could not very well sit on the sidelines anymore. So I sat down and went through the candidates.

I like Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, but I can’t endorse them. Ben Carson lacks ego. Carly Fiorina has ego and drive, but lacks everything else. I honestly think they would make better Senators.

To be brutally honest, I can’t endorse any Senator running because of Barack Obama. I would make an exception for Marco Rubio, however I rather he become Florida’s next governor and THEN become President.

The only governors I would have endorsed, were Rick Perry and Scott Walker. Of course they dropped out and we as a nation lost big time when they did.

I dismissed Donald Trump out of hand. I distrust the guy. Trump is a loud mouth, unrepentant egomaniac. Until a few years ago, Trump was also an unrepentant liberal. In fact, he still sometimes spews liberal nonsense. Trump latched onto the crazy Birther nonsense and would not let go.

Yet President Obama’s unbelievable response to the November 13th’s Paris Attacks made me take a second look at Donald Trump.

So I decided to sit down and list what are Donald Trump’s positives: Here is a guy who turned a million dollars, into billions of dollars (which is honestly no small feat). Here is a guy whose mantra is to “Make America Great Again” and that is great goal no matter how you spin it (whether or not he has the right policies or not, is up for debate). Here is a guy that says some things I agree with (even if I don’t agree how he says it).

You know, I did not endorse Florida Governor Rick Scott in the GOP primary when he ran in 2010. Yet I gritted my teeth and I voted for him in the general election that year. I have call him out many times, especially on Sun Rail. However not once have I regretted voting for him. He has not been the best governor ever, but Rick Scott is clearly not the worst governor. Through sheer force of will alone Rick Scott has moved Florida forward, for good or ill.

I am not a single issue voter. Nor am I looking for someone who totally matches my world view. I’m looking, first and foremost, for a leader to move America. A leader is someone who moves his followers, not the other way around. The only person I keep coming back to who could move America forward through sheer force of will alone, is Donald Trump. This is not done lightly or without a lot of prayer. So, for now, I am endorsing Donald Trump for President of The United States.

This endorsement is not meant as support for everything Donald Trump has done or said. In fact, I will continue to be one of Trump’s biggest critics when I disagree with him. I will not join the Cult Of Trump, so I will not jump down your throat for any reason. I will lay down the marker that I will vote for the GOP nominee, whoever he or she might be.

Well, see ya’ later!
