Some time ago when my wife and I where talking about the upcoming events, there was some speculation that Donald Trump might get involved in the US federal bid for the job of president. I remember distinctly saying that he would turn it into a three ring circus, I’m sorry that he lived up to my expectations by turning things into anything but a Republican run for the Presidency.
Donald Trump is proud of his record as a “Business man” and has very little respect for anyone that doesn’t fit into his category of “Winners” but seems to forget how he got his billions over the backs of others and by gaining favours to use as “Leverage” …… (blackmail) for use in his bullying to get what he wants.
People are tired of Politicians and that gives the likes of Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina an advantage because they are “Outsiders” in the politicians lineup. Let’s be cautious here, business people are usually smooth or slick in their trade in order to be successful.
No doubt Trump has achieved the “Successful status” in the business world but Carly Fiorina also claims that title, she worked her way up from secretary via various positions to 'CEO of Hewlett Packard,' no small accomplishment. Then the boardroom boys fired her, she reportedly walked away with a $70.- million settlement, a lot more than any of the 3000 Hewlett Packhard workers that lost their jobs, got as their severance pay.
Both Trump and Fiorina brag about their negotiating skills but it is greed plain and simple with a tinge of dishonesty.
No I didn’t forget Ben Carson, a brilliant brain surgeon and a quiet spoken man who has done some amazing and unique work, very concise in his speech and not bragging about his money or his skills. He doesn’t join in the "Mudslinging" that has been going on, he knows how to behave in this race for the “Presidents job” and works hard like all the others in the race.
Also there is the Canadian Federal election, the race is considerably shorter and the candidates don’t spend the ridicules amounts of money to bring their best man or woman to be Prime Minister of the country. Run by a Conservative Government, Canada has been able to maintain a strong economy while its neighbour the USA has had quite a struggle economically.
Presently Prime Minister Harper is in Canada what President Obama is in the United States. Two different but similar jobs, two totally different men with different philosophies.
