Donald Trump for President: Texas's Voice Shall Be Heard

Trump 2012: He's aerodynamic!
The biggest political news of the moment isn't the Iowa caucuses, because all of us Real Amurricans already know Rick Perry is about to shock all those naysaying know-it-all Beltway elites.

The big news came over the holiday weekend: An independent party supporting Donald Trump for President has managed to get on the November ballot in Texas.

Lone Star residents, you will have the chance to cast a vote for Donald Trump to be the leader of the free world. Read that sentence again and praise Jesus you live in such a great country (and state).

The independent party is called the Make America Great Again Party. You have to admit, that's a much better name than "Democratic" or "Republican" or "Make America Worse Again Party."

Best of all, it's headed by a man who exudes class, in his mind. Better hair than Romney, Obama and Perry combined.

Trump told the Web site The Blaze:

I am aware and flattered by this filing by my supporters in Texas. I have not authorized anyone to act on my behalf and am not a candidate for president at this time.

I will not, however, rule out a third-party candidacy if the Republicans nominate a candidate who cannot defeat Obama and I recently changed my party registration in New York state to preserve my legal option to appear on the ballot in all 50 states if I do decide to run.

He's in it to win it, folks!!

If this indeed comes true, and remembering that your presidential vote for either candidate in Texas is a token gesture, let us hope you keep in mind your responsibility to feed the Trump ego.

It's the only way to keep the insanity going.

It might take more than just filing that candidate paper with the Secretary of State.

With minor parties - unless the law has changed during the last legislative cycle - the party would need to launch a successful petition drive beginning on the day after the Texas primary and ending 75 days later. They would need to get  the signatures of 1% of the number of Texas voters who voted in the last governor's race but did not vote in the primary.

It's a fairly rough process, which is why only the Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and sometimes Greens end up on our ballot...

Speak for yourself WhiteOwl, I am feed up with lame Dem & Rep in it for themselves. The Indep party needs a voice in this screwed up world, thanks to the past 2 morons in office.


Donald Trump thinks he can dictate to Americans who they will chose for their president.  He has it all wrapped up - who will win, who will lose.  Every time we see him being interviewed, he acts like a big shot know it all about politics.  He is too arrogant and self important to run for president.  Please, Donald, do us all a favor.  We don't deserve you.
