Neo Neocon makes an important Trump point

Neo­Neo­con has made an excel­lent point:

if I were a lib­eral in tune with her pol­icy posi­tions, I would actu­ally con­sider her quite trust­wor­thy in terms of her pol­i­tics, on which she is con­sis­tently liberal/​leftist.

Lib­er­als are ends and means peo­ple. The fact that Hillary is a lying per­son who has made her for­tune off of the wealth of pow­er­ful peo­ple seek­ing favors, has been slip­shod with Amer­i­can secu­rity and left Amer­i­cans to die is com­pletely irrel­e­vant to them.

The prob­lem for many with Trump, includ­ing many I spoke to at Red­state, is not only do peo­ple have trou­ble with some of his actions (the whole Cruz father/​wife thing) but they aren’t sure of him on pol­icy. Neo again:

I’ve decided I can­not trust a great deal of what he says. I can­not state strongly enough how lit­tle I trust him to keep his polit­i­cal word, or to have any fidelity to the issues he seems to be pro­mot­ing at the moment. If he did become pres­i­dent, he cer­tainly might turn out to be trust­wor­thy on some of them, but I can­not tell ahead of time which ones they might be or whether there even are any such issues.

In other words as I’ve said, we don’t know his core val­ues.

Now I’ve already endorsed Trump and have absolutely no doubt that it’s impor­tant to elect him vs Hillary. But this is a prob­lem that needs to be address if Mr. Trump is going to win the votes of activists that has declined to sup­port him.

That is the job of Steve Ban­non to con­vince those folks that Trump means what he says, alter­na­tively his job is to bring in enough non activists to com­pen­sate for this. Either way I wish him the best of luck on it.

NeoNeocon has made an excellent point:

if I were a liberal in tune with her policy positions, I would actually consider her quite trustworthy in terms of her politics, on which she is consistently liberal/leftist.

Liberals are ends and means people. The fact that Hillary is a lying person who has made her fortune off of the wealth of powerful people seeking favors, has been slipshod with American security and left Americans to die is completely irrelevant to them.

The problem for many with Trump, including many I spoke to at Redstate, is not only do people have trouble with some of his actions (the whole Cruz father/wife thing) but they aren’t sure of him on policy. Neo again:

I’ve decided I cannot trust a great deal of what he says. I cannot state strongly enough how little I trust him to keep his political word, or to have any fidelity to the issues he seems to be promoting at the moment. If he did become president, he certainly might turn out to be trustworthy on some of them, but I cannot tell ahead of time which ones they might be or whether there even are any such issues.

In other words as I’ve said, we don’t know his core values.

Now I’ve already endorsed Trump and have absolutely no doubt that it’s important to elect him vs Hillary. But this is a problem that needs to be address if Mr. Trump is going to win the votes of activists that has declined to support him.

That is the job of Steve Bannon to convince those folks that Trump means what he says, alternatively his job is to bring in enough non activists to compensate for this. Either way I wish him the best of luck on it.
