This just in:  As a disclaimer, I am not referring to what a “Republican” was 10 years ago.  I also want to stress the “just might be” part of this post.  My intent is to not throw a broad net over everyone that identifies as a Republican and attribute the following traits to them all.

So let’s start…

  19. If you think Trump is honest; that he understands the “average man”; that he will put middle America’s interests ahead of the wealth; that he understands diplomacy; that he understands economics; that he understands negotiations; that he understands healthcare and that he understands the science behind Global Warming, then you just might be a Republican.
