Let Me Say What’s On My Mind
Let me clarify and further explain my position on Trump and the two political parties. My clarifications might help—hopefully.
The only Democratic presidential candidate I have ever voted for was Jimmy Carter. I cast my vote for him because of his Christian alliance. He belonged to God. He was not part of the liberal culture, as the vast majority of Democrats are. However, to my disappointment, his presidency was a failure because he was not presidentially qualified.
As I noted in my latest Rumblings
, I cast my vote for Trump, in spite of the fact I viewed him as possessing a Narcissistic Personality Disorder
. If I might describe the symptoms of a personality disorder of this kind, please note the following. Feel free to check out these defects/symptoms in any medical or psychiatric manual.Reacts to criticism with rage, shame, or humiliation.
Has excessive feelings of self-importance.
Exaggerate achievements and talents.
Preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, intelligence.
Has unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment.
Need constant attention and admiration.
Has obsessive self-interests.
Speaks untruths—tells falsehoods. Acknowledgement:
During Trump’s tenure, he has been the author of many virtuous and honorable changes in many areas of political, social, and religious life. The liberal Democrats, of course, opposed him in all of these virtuous changes. I have publicly commended him for these accomplishments in my weekly column and on Facebook
. I have also commended Vice President Pence for guiding him in most of these areas.
To phrase it another way, in spite of his personality flaws he has authored, reformed, modified, and remodeled a bushel of laws and statutes that address our way of life. I praise him now, and I have praised him along the way, for the needed changes in our society.
But there is another side of the coin. Because of his narcissistic characteristics, he has almost “mouthed” himself out of office. His mouth has created chaos, uproar, bedlam, agitation and commotion over and over—“until the cows came home.” He is the author and founder of his own failures. Basically, he is to blame for his current status. If he had kept his mouth shut 80% of the time he has been in office, he would not now be in the dreadful state of affairs he’s experiencing.
Am I now sorry I helped vote him into office? No, not at all
. In spite of his mental blemish, I could never have voted for Hillary or any other liberal Democrat to fill the office of President. And that is where I stand.
