Three American politicians have impressed us here at Washington in our lifetime.
All three were very different men, one to the other and yet, all three of them impressed us for the same reason:
Wallace in 1972; who had a keen, intuitive, sense of the people, innate charisma and an implacable hatred of Washington,
Perot in 1992, who lacked Wallace’s savage sense of the American people and charisma but who had money and shared with Wallace an implacable hatred of Washington
Trump in 2016, who has all of the reflexive, boxer’s intuitiveness of Wallace, the money of Perot and shares both of their implacable hatreds of Washington and their innate feel for the American people and what the Americans want done with this city.
In the eyes of all three men we see what so petrified Nixon in 1972, who sensed a wave rising that Washington did not and yet today cannot, understand.
Nixon sensed a wave rising that carried, in its then yet embryonic state:
The glint of the American people that was in Wallace’s eyes.
It is that same glint of the people that so petrifies, so terrifies, Washington.
Today, Washington, hurries, fretfully and once again, attempts to draw the blinds, to shutter the shades, against Trump, much as Washington earlier did to stave off Perot and Wallace.
Nothing more terrifies the men of Washington than does a glimpse of the glint of the people in the eyes of a potent political force.
One day, the blinds will not pull down.
One day, the shades will not shutter.
That day may well be 8 November, 2016.
Maybe on that day, with a little luck and God’s Grace, forty years on from Wallace, twenty years on from Perot, Trump will make the glint in the eye of the American people finally triumphant over the city the American nation now so deplores.
How short the list one could compile of those of whom it can be said that fame and money did not deprave?
- At Washington, capital city of the terminally self-absorbed, mortal man holds to fleeting, feeble and fallible opinion, God immutable fact.

He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own.”~~

Move over John Galt. Mr Trump just made the cut at #1 for the GOP debate. Indeed, twas the art of a deal at work when he said he’d fly Independent Airlines if dissed, wink, wink. You go, Donald!
The boys of Washington are freaking out about Trump. There really isn’t much they can do to bring him down.
Well, good for him! And for us, I suspect. And Mr John, for the record, if you ever need someone of minimal means who has worked and played hard, and loved this country as a 1st Gen American citizen, to speak in support of Mr Trump, you just let me know. Cheers!
I will do. Trump has great appeal to first generation American citizens.
