[11/7/16: Time has run out on Trump Tweet. All you can do is vote.]


A. The case against Hillary Clinton
Congress and Washington DC are disconnected from the people.

The people are partly to blame, because they are ignorant of a lot, and their jobs and families keep them from doing all they should as citizens.

The iron triangle of  the politicians, lobbyists and "special interests" in Washington DC have the people over the barrel. They profit greatly in corrupt ways, and the people are harmed by bad laws, bad regulations, and government waste and fiscal irresponsibility that result. The establishment keeps the people polarized so they don't unite to "drain the swamp". The establishment thrives in rancorous and destructive hyper-partisanship, and even foments the same.

For 25 years, the Clintons have been master practitioners and supreme beneficiaries of the corruption of money in politics.

The Clinton Foundation has been the apotheosis of corruption for the past 15 years.

It is clear Hillary Clinton got her private email server in order to maximize the ability of her and her husband to keep their corruption hidden.  

Never mind careless handling of classified information affecting national security. It was imperative that the Clintons be able to destroy evidence about their corruption if and when needed to protect themselves. And destroy Hillary Clinton did, including 33,000 emails that establish who knows what criminality.

The Clinton corruption is labyrinthean. There is a Clinton entourage, built up over decades, of thousands of persons, who have benefited from the corruption. The corruption has included governmental favors for campaign contributors, contracts that Clinton friends have gotten with corrupt foreign entities and others, in exchange for Clinton Foundation donations and speaking fees, and a large Clinton controlled payroll of the State Department and the Foundation, all planned to nurture the entourage for enriching themselves and ultimately aiding Hillary Clinton in her Presidential quest. This Clinton entourage will do their best to keep the corruption from being exposed and to continue being rewarded by the Clintons in the future.

The impetus for protecting the Clintons against exposure has seeped into the Obama administration. There are clear signs the Justice Department and the FBI have been compromised to give the Clintons and their entourage special treatment under the law.

If Hillary Clinton is elected President, a very high priority for her will be to keep the Clinton corruption from being further exposed. She will have awesome powers of the Presidency for protecting herself and her husband, and the rest of the Clinton entourage. It is to be expected that Hillary Clinton will not hesitate to use such powers corruptly.

The number one thing that keeps the people from having a government of, by and for the people is the money corruption in politics. The Clintons are arch villains in this, and they must be defeated if the people are going to have a chance to get back their government of, by and for the people.

Hillary Clinton's corruption foments the destructive hyper-partisanship in Washington DC, and that will only get worse if she is elected.

B. Donald Trump
Donald Trump offers the people their best chance to get back a government of, by and for the people.

If one believes that the political system is broken, almost every other issue raised in this election is secondary. There needs to be honest acknowledgment that the issues present difficult problems that are not susceptible to easy solutions and that ultimately have to be worked out in the political system that includes the President and Congress. A polarized electorate, a failed Congress, and turmoil will persist until the country, including Congress, addresses the broken political system.

Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump have already turned a lot upside down in Democratic and Republican politics. If Donald Trump is elected President, much will be thrown up in the air in Washington DC. This will be particularly true about Congress, which will be confronted with a political earthquake having occurred and will have to decide what has gone wrong in the country's political system and what the country should do about its political system.

No one knows what will be the outcome of the political earthquake if Donald Trump is elected President.

There is risk for all concerned. The paramount question for everyone should be, "Do I want the failed, corrupt status quo to continue with Hillary Clinton and perhaps never have a chance again for the people to make a change? Or do I want to take a chance with the political earthquake of Donald Trump being elected President?"

The country has never been presented with such a Presidential candidate as Donald Trump. On the one hand, he did what no one 18 months ago thought ever possible, and has turned the Republican Party upside down. On the other hand, Donald Trump has been appalling to millions of people in how he has conducted his campaign.

As appalling as Donald Trump may be, he also may be the people's last chance at getting back a government of, by and for the people. Bernie Sanders previously bore the people's mantle, but now it is down to Donald Trump.

Those who are appalled by Donald Trump have to confront this question: If you are appalled, are you nonetheless willing to allow Donald Trump to be President because he is your last chance to get back a government of, by and for the people?

Here, it needs to be acknowledged the tremendous contribution that Bernie Sanders made to the people's effort to get back a government that is of, by and for the people. The ardent supporters of Bernie Sanders know well the pain they experienced when Hillary Clinton took the Democratic nomination away from Bernie Sanders. To Sanders supporters the same is posed to you as to others who are appalled by Donald Trump. You have the same choice. You can take a chance with Donald Trump and then be part of the watchdog over him, so that if he messes up and does not work to get the people a government of, by and for, the people, he will be a one term President.

For those who are appalled and worried about Donald Trump's excesses, consider some protections that you may take comfort from.

Donald Trump has run his campaign according to his choice. He is ostensibly falling short for winning November 8th for the American people. If the people make a supreme effort to change the looming outcome, and this is seen by everyone, including Donald Trump, the people will have credibility in saying to Donald Trump, "We have put you in office, we are going to watch you closely, and if you mess up for us, we will take action again in 2020 to make sure you are a one term President, and we will get someone else to help us get back a government of, by and for, the people."

Also consider that Donald Trump probably recognizes that the country is facing very difficult problems that, in truth, are not susceptible to easy solution, If elected President, he is going to be heavily saddled with the country's problems. Donald Trump has alleged that everyone else during the past 30 years has massively failed the American people, and he alone can make American great again. Donald Trump has insulted and disparaged the media mercilessly.

The establishment and media Donald Trump has excoriated as losers or worse during the past 18 months will have their knives ready for Donald Trump from day one if he is sworn in as President on January 20, 2017.

The pressures on Donald Trump to perform well for the people will be unimaginable.

To cope, Donald Trump will need, genuinely and deeply, to want to help the American people with their great problems. A good prediction is that Donald Trump will be pragmatic and open minded in seeking solutions. Further, he will be able to tell Congress it needs to be pragmatic as well and end their destructive hyper-partisanship that hurts the country in trying to work through the country's problems.

If, on November 8th, the people repudiate Hillary Clinton for her corruption, Donald Trump will stand exposed to vivisection of his past history as he proceeds to execute his Presidency. He knows that will come, and he knows he is going to have to face whatever onslaught is mounted against him. This will intensify the pressure on Donald Trump to live up to his promises to the American people.

In other words, all that will stand between Donald Trump and perdition at the hands of the establishment and the media will be the people, and the people will be there only if they are satisfied in how Donald Trump is doing for them.

That offers protection for people who are appalled by Donald Trump.   

C. Making closing argument via Trump Tweet
Trump Tweet is one way for the people to make a supreme effort to win for themselves on November 8th. Learn how by reading Be a Trump tweeter and The people are in a ditch.

Hillary Clinton is now saying she is not going to respond to anything Donald Trump says.

If enough people tweet in Trump Tweet, millions of tweets can be sent to voters  in the remaining days before November 8th. Hillary Clinton will learn directly from the people of their determination to regain a government of, by and for the people. She will have to respond about the corruption case against her and her husband, and she will not be able to continue her evasions from the past year and a half.

This can happen, however, only if hundreds or thousands of the people tweet in Trump Tweet.

Just to get an idea, a single person can send 30 to 40 tweets in 15 minutes. Do some multiplications, and you can see that millions of tweets are doable over the next 15 days.

But let's be clear. Hundreds or thousands of people are needed to tweet in Trump Tweet in order to generate millions of tweets to voters.

Thus far, hundreds of people have "liked" and retweeted tweets in response to efforts to get Trump Tweet going, but no state groups have been formed and no tweeting has been yet done as envisioned by Trump Tweet. "Likes" and "retweets" alone will not do the trick, and massive tweeting as envisioned by Trump Tweet is needed to force Hillary Clinton to respond on Clinton corruption.

D. Think about Trump Tweet as ground game
In making your decision whether or not to tweet as envisioned by Trump Tweet, think about the dominant Clinton ground game that is at work across the country right now, compared to a much inferior ground game that Donald Trump has going. Think about the intertwined Clinton superstructure that is a backdrop for Hillary Clinton's campaign. Think about maybe Clinton friends who got corrupt Clinton Foundation contracts subsequently having made contributions to Hillary Clinton's Presidential campaign. Or maybe members of the entourage who were on the Clinton controlled payroll at the State Department and/or the Clinton Foundation are now contributing services to the Presidential campaign. Think about that, directly or indirectly, feeding into the Clinton ground game right now.

If Donald Trump is losing in the ground game his national campaign team has created, you and many others are desperately needed to try to make Trump Tweet a ground game on your own.

If you are wondering what the Trump national organization or Trump state organizations think about Trump Tweet, the answer is that I don't know they have any awareness of Trump Tweet. I have tried to get their attention but have not gotten response. While hundreds of Trump supporters in the grassroots have expressed interest in Trump Tweet, none of them have indicated making inquiry to find out what their state organizations think.

Maybe this is but evidence of a very unfortunately deficient Trump ground game. Check it out yourself. Contact your Trump state organization, ask them what ground game they have going, and suggest they promote Trump Tweet as ground game in your State in the remaining days before November 8th.
