The charge has been made that Donald Trump is a con artist. The more I think about that charge, the more I think it is true. At first, the idea is overwhelming because of the numbers but also the range of people being scammed. We like to think of a subset of people as being vulnerable to being conned, such as the very old or the very young people. In addition, we usually you think of some individual here or there being conned out of money, but this is something different. He is conning groups of people and conning them out of money. The question is where does the money come in? Now, think about it this way; Trump is “conning” a majority of people in state after state to vote for him as president; where does the money come into his plan. Last night, it became clear. He is selling his wide range of products, which includes vodka, ties and shirts, apartments, golf club memberships, buildings, and steaks, among other things, but most of all he is selling his name. His “make America great again” is the punch line that allows him to put his foot in your door. Is there any living person content with everything in his or her life? Is there any living citizen who doesn't see something wrong with America? I was shocked to realize how many reasonable people tend to plug whatever they see wrong with America into that simplistic Trump line. You know and I know he is a fraud just as we know that is how he became so rich. He became rich through deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage. Every time he speaks you can hear it; his buildings are the biggest, he is the most wonderful man, his vodka is the best, ad nausea. There is never something to compare them too. Everyone has heard of and knows what voter fraud is but do they know what candidate fraud is? They should because to some degree it is common; people run for office for profit and power, some even run for elected office to make the government better. Trump is a person who is a candidate running for office under deceitful pretenses. Clearly he wants to open a store in the White House for what he is selling. URL: Comments Invited and not moderated
