I really don't share your perspective in that regard. In terms of some social issues, I can see that. But I've never been religious conservative so I don't see that as a problem. In my view, Trump (to me at least) is kind of a Pat Buchanan. I don't agree with him on everything, but I think he has the interests of the nation at heart (a la I don't like protectionism, but I do dislike NAFTA, TPP, and such). But I'm glad Trump isn't a raving neocon. I'm happy he has a great interest in the American worker and trying to restore prosperity to those that are willing to work and stand up for those that kick their ass every day to make a living whilst we have welfare slaves living off the state.
And I like his stance on Illegal immigration. How the hell illegal immigrants VOTE in our elections is beyond my comprehension. Let me just sneak my way into the UK/Canada/Aussieland and some how vote... Like, really? Why the hell would we ever support people coming into this nation collecting free welfare/healthcare WHO DON'T EVEN COME HER LEGALLY!? You can either have open borders or a welfare state... Currently we have both. Big part of our debt there.
I think the greatest thing about him is that he isn't bought by companies or the political establishment. If nothing else he is a giant middle finger to the lobbyists, corporate interests, and etc... that have so much influence in our nation's politics.
I just view (currently) that Trump can have a positive influence on some policies we wish to move forward (he criticizes The Fed for example, and go back and watch him attack "JEB!" on the Iraq war).
If he doesn't do anything we like and goes against us, I will certainly be the first to attack him and go against him. I guess I'm just more of an optimist when it comes to Trump because I see him a just in general a great human being (Especially living on the East coast in the Tri-state area. He helps so many people and hires all he can.)
