The Bull Moose Party was the intellectual precursor to the New Deal coalition.
In no way does Trump resemble Teddy Roosevelt, nor does his coalition sound anything like Teddy's Republican Party or the briefly-lived Bull Moose Party.
Allright. Where'd this talking point originate? A Trump-supporting PAC? Trump website? I've already seen at least one other thread today claiming that Trump = T.R.
For anyone who knows anything about T.R. (start with Edmund Morris's biography), the claim is laughably false.
Let's remember that Teddy Roosevelt was shot.......and gave his speech anyway, saying, "It takes more than that to stop a Bull Moose!"
Judging from both the popularity of Trump and the rage and hate toward Trump and the current BLM tendency to use firearms to solve problems--I'd say Trump has a fifty-fifty chance of getting shot in the next few months.
You heard it here first.
Actually, Teddy was a rich man like Trump, a strong man like Trump and shared a lot of Trump's attributes. Trump's sons are big game hunters just like Roosevelt's famous hunting son.
Teddy wanted prosperity and lower taxes for the common man and Trump's stance seems to be the same.
Teddy referred to himself as a Bull Moose for his entire long political career.
Amazing the lengths some people will go to to assure their little fantasy worlds aren't torn apart by reality.
Could you imagine Trump setting aside vast amounts of American territory and making them off-limits for developers?
Says the man from the fantasy world of BlackLivesMatter.
Ask the cops......the ones still alive, I mean......well, the ones that have recovered sufficiently to talk.
A little over 40 cop casualties in the war BlackLivesMatter started at Ferguson by falsely accusing Darrin Wilson.
Roosevelt in 1916 delivered a preemptive strike on Political Correctness. It is now doctrinaire on the Left to believe all religions are equal. All religions (with the possible exceptions of Judaism and Christianity) are equally valid and deserving of respect. Of course, Islam (de rigueur) cannot and should not be criticized or debated by any one. The viewpoint elevates Islam to a supremacist ideology. On this Roosevelt writes, “To make a statement that all religions are the same is as naive as saying all political parties are the same. Some religions and belief systems give a higher value to human life and some religions and belief systems give a lower value.”
Oh, let's think rather than react.
What would Teddy say about Muslim Terrorists?
How would he handle them?
What would Teddy say about our Latino and Mexican illegal immigrants? Pamper them?
What would Teddy say about cop-killers?
Invite them to the White House for tea?
Thinking with the brain is not all that difficult.....although REACTING from the gut may be more fun.
