Why I Am Withdrawing Support For Donald Trump

Date published: Sunday 9th of October 2016

Over the past three or four months, I've posted a few messages on the forum and across social media expressing my support for Donald Trump. My primary reasons for supporting Trump were:

* I saw him as being our best chance of re-establishing friendly relations with Russia.

* Hillary Clinton is a puppet for the large corporations.

* The foreign policies of the current US Government have been a complete disaster story of the highest order.


All of these criticisms remain as true as ever. Sadly, however, having viewed the 'grab them by the pussy' tapes, I think the time has come to say 'enough is enough', as far as The Donald goes.

Like millions of other ordinary men, I insist that I have never kept company who anyone who conducts themselves in such a despicable manner. I do not think that there is anything ordinary about the way Trump conducts himself and I refuse to dismiss Trump's behaviour as 'macho locker room talk'.

Personally speaking, what bothered me most about the Trump tape was not so much the things he was saying behind closed doors as it was the way he conducted himself after stepping out of the bus. Suddenly I saw him in a new light and everything from his aloof manner to the way he sleazily leaned in to kiss that female reporter, to the way that he approvingly told her "that's better" when she stood beside him... well, it was just creepy.

Now, of course, we've learned that there is another Trump tape where he brags about hanging around backstage, ogling over women getting dressed at a Miss World contest.

These are the things that we have on tape. This is what "the Donald" gets up to when there are cameras and reporters everywhere and when he's out and about with his suit and red tie. What on Earth must he be getting up to behind closed doors, when the media is not there? Personally speaking, I think that we're not too far from Jimmy Saville terrority. The basic premises are the same - a rich and powerful person using his celebrity to commit sex offences.

Even without these tapes, however, I think there are things about Trump which are just unacceptable. Everything about him is wrong. Everything he appears to value is wrong. Everything he stands for is wrong.

* The trophy wife

* The nepotism

* The tax avoidance

* The greed

* The bullying personality

* The scams

* The multiple bankruptcies


I think it's time to say no to ALL of these things. It's time to say 'enough is enough'.

Critics of Trump, such as Paul Joseph Watson have posted counter attacks, saying that Hillary defended a sex attacker when she was a lawyer. Now, that may indeed be the case, but the legal system of America allows and indeed DEMANDS that all criminals have the right to be defended by a lawyer. So, within the context of Hillary being a lawyer, and operating within the capacity of a lawyer, we have no option but to excuse her behaviour.

Hillary Clinton is also under attack because of the leaked emails scandal and her severe negligence, leading up to the American Embassy attack in Benghazi. Well, I have looked into these allegations and it's my conclusion that Hillary Clinton was and is utterly incompetent. Her incompetence was the driving force behind these and many other disasters. Hillary Clinton is incompetent! However, incompetence is different from being a misogynistic, megalomaniacal playground bully.

Here at the Insider Club my dream is that some day people can come here to learn skills and hook up with people who can collectively help each other to get ahead in life. In other words, I'd like the Insider Club to be a sort of success club for those who are willing to learn and help others in return. We all have our own definitions of what success is. However, I think the time has come for people to say 'no' to the type of success that Donald Trump values. His shallow, materialistic, trophy wife lifestyle should not impress anyone. It's time to reach for a higher ground.

Now, this may mean that we need to put up with four more years of the status quo, as far as geo-politicics goes. That truely is a disaster story. However, the good news is that Russia appears to be behaving in a more sensible way than the West, lately. With a little bit of luck, the human race will survive for another four years and hopefully somebody else will come along who can challenge the establishment on behalf of ordinary people.

In the meantime, I'm withdrawing all support for Donald Trump. Character does matter and the way that Trump behaves, along with everything he represents is not acceptable.

Peace, love and vegetables.
