Since he strolled down the golden escalator into the atrium of Trump Tower on June 14th, 2015, the world has either loved or hated Donald J. Trump.
That is a fact that should come as no surprise to anyone at this point in time.
The question is, how many have remained silent, to this very day, in voicing their true opinions of approval for our president.
On day one of his announcement for candidacy, it became evident that there would inevitably be a percentage of people who would choose to remain silent in their support for Trump.
This silent support, which would eventually coin the very successful and catchy campaign slogan “The Silent Majority”, ultimately became the driving force behind the shock factor that rocked the world on the final hours of November 8th, 2016.
This very same silent support is still very much alive today, and very well could be the contributing factor behind another upset for many in November of 2020, in what could easily be a landslide victory for President Trump.
Ironically, what most liberals just don’t seem to understand, is that Trump supporters never wanted to be silent on their opinions of then candidate Trump.
I think it’s in normal human nature to want to voice your opinion on something that you support.
It’s also in human nature to want to tend to keep your opinions to yourself when you find yourself harassed and ridiculed for them.
Which is precisely what happened to every “would be” Trump supporter on June 14th 2015.
I remember it like it was yesterday.
I was on Facebook, strolling through a comical post in one of my favorite FB groups at the time.
Someone had posted a meme, “possibly one of the first of what would become many”, of Donald Trump. I don’t remember the precise photo or caption of the meme, but I certainly remember the nature of the comments that quickly followed.
Immediately, hundreds of people began posting comments of their opinions.
And the jokes started flying…
Of course, it was only a matter of seconds before someone could no longer resist the obvious first joke destined to be born…
Donald Trump can’t wait to tell Obama, “YOU’RE FIRED!”
Besides the jokes, serious debates of approval and disapproval immediately began to fly as well.
I was one of many on that facebook thread, on that day of announcement, whom voiced strong support for his candidacy.
And every single one of us were quickly faced with blowback in the form of childish and immature criticism from the opposition.
What I found most interesting, is that there was never any moment of healthy debate on the subject.
It was nothing but “You’re an idiot for supporting him!”, or “You’re a racist!”, or “You’re a bigot!”…
Ultimately… “You’re a deplorable”…
Even though it would be quite some time before “The Hillary Machine” would officially apply the very effective Deplorable label on all of us, it didn’t matter.
We were already labeled by the left as deplorables from the beginning.
Which, in turn, immediately transformed us into The Silent Majority from the start.
Like I stated earlier, we didn’t want to become silent…
It was basically forced upon us by the left.
Our lack of desire to engage in childlike cheap shots below the belt is what separated us from the opinionated openness of the democratic base.
So, back to my original question…
How many of us remain silent in our support for a President Trump?
Personally, I let myself out of the Trump closet during the Maine Republican Convention of 2016, while attending as a delegate for my home town.
I’d remained silent of my support for Trump even amongst all republicans during the first half of that convention.
Because back then, Ted Cruz was still in the race, and there were just as many Trump hating critics in the Republican Party as there were on the side of the Dems.
Throughout most of the convention, I had to keep my Silent Majority For Trump signs concealed from Cruz supporters until a few hours before the voting began. It had not been my strategy until I got there and realized that the many fellow Trump supporters in the arena were being outwardly ostracized by Cruz supporters. It was truly brutal.
Which was precisely why I was a Silent Majority guy in the beginning, and it’s precisely why I wholeheartedly believe that there are still many Silent Majority Supporters still roaming the world to this day.
And I believe that many of us will continue to remain silent until well after the 2020 election.
Because the far left establishment has proven to be relentless in their misguided efforts to destroy President Trump and his fan base.
For many, I believe, it’s a self defense tactic to protect our base from outsiders.
Many of us still feel like they can’t target us if they don’t know that we’re a threat.
Which is precisely why we remain to be such an effective weapon against the war tactics of the liberal agenda.
Every day on FOX NEWS, I listen to Juan Williams go on and on about the polls, the polls, the polls.
These are the same polls that proved no path to 270 electoral college votes for Trump?
The same polls that predicted a landslide victory for Hillary?
Sorry… I don’t think so.
I don’t know about you, but I haven’t received any calls in the past four years from any pollsters.
Why aren’t they phoning me about my disapproval for Trump?
Because they fear they’ll hear the truth.
And the truth isn’t that President Trump has a fifty percent approval rating.
Whatever the polls say, you can take it to the bank that you’d better add about twenty five percent of that number to his favor.
I’d bet my next paycheck that if the polls say Trump’s approval rating is at 50%, it’s probably more like 75 or 80%.
The Dems and the lying mainstream media, whom go hand in hand, will never let the true numbers get out.
They’re already losing and they know that they’ll never stop us from winning anytime soon.
So they’re going to continue to do what they do best…
Lie and deny… and deflect the truth.
So, if you’re worried that Trump is going to lose in November, have no fear.
If you’re a Trump hater, you’d better get prepared for a long five years.
If you’re still a part of The Silent Majority, keep up the great work. They’re never going to know what hit them this fall.
God Bless You.
God Bless Us All.
God Bless America.
God Bless President Donald J. Trump.
