Donald Trump for President

Will Trump Be President

The prospect of Donald Trump becoming President, for millions of people, could be a welcomed godsend. For millions of others, Donald Trump for President would be their worst nightmare come to life. 

However no matter which camp you are in most would agree, that Donald Trump brings an interesting, if not entertaining dynamic to the U.S Presidential race that hasn’t been seen in a long time. Polarizing the country into almost tribalistic groupings, like never before.  

So Who is Donald Trump?Donald Trump for President

Born in Queens, Donald J. Trump joined his father’s company early on in his career and had a vision for the Trump name. He envisioned the “Trump” brand as being synonymous with luxury worldwide.

To do this, in the mid-1970s, he went into real estate in Manhattan. Relying on the business connections and creditworthiness of his father, he borrowed a “small sum” of 1 million dollars to get started.

Trump’s Biggest Success

Trump’s top three business successes include:

  1. The Grand Hyatt, which he bought in 1976 and sold for $142 million in 1996.Thumbs Up
  2. 40 Wall Street, Once the tallest building in the world, which he bought for $1 million and today as  prime real estate in the financial district it’s worth more than $500 million
  3. The Apprentice. As the T.V’s show’s host and executive producer, he raked in $1 million for each 185 episodes.

Trump’s Biggest Failures

Like many businessmen, Donald Trump’s career has also had his share of failures. His biggest failure may be his ill-fated venture into casinos in Atlantic City.

1. Atlantic City

In 1988, he acquired the Taj Mahal Casino. Funded primarily by junk bonds, the casino would be $3 billion in debt within a year. Trump, racked up $900 million in personal liabilities, had the business declare bankruptcy. To stay afloat he sold many personal assets,a 282-foot megayacht, his airline and half of his stake in the company.

Trump’s casino holding company would enter bankruptcy two more times: in 2004, after accruing $1.8 billion in debt, and in 2009, after missing a bond payment during the Financial Crisis. Each time, Trump’s stake in the company fell.

You’re Fired!!

2. Other Businesses

While three of Trump’s four bankruptcies involved Atlantic City casinos, he has also struggled in other ventures outside of real estate: Trump airlines, Trump Vodka, Trump: The Game, Trump Magazine, Trump Steaks, and Trump University were all destined for failure. Trump Mortgages was launched in 2006 right before the real estate crash, and it also failed.

Trump’s Net Worth

According to Trump’s campaign, he is worth in excess of TEN BILLION DOLLARS”. However, he has been accused of artificially inflating his net worth. Forbes and Bloomberg News both have drastically different estimates of his wealth at $4.5 billion and $2.9 billion respectively.

Donald Trump for President

But whatever the truth, it’s still a lot of money, and he’s still a billionaire who made it through hard work and self-effort, something most politicians and ‘insiders’ can’t lay claim to. He’s been down, he’s been out, he’s been broke, but still he managed to come back.

“Success comes from failure and you should never measure a man by how many times he has failed. Rather by how often he has succeeded. Success alludes most of us so it is something to be respected, no matter our personal views of the individual involved”.  

Will Trump Be President?

If I was to make a prediction, it would be that Trump will win, because he is an outsider and the people are awaking to the fact that the government is about looking after the insiders.

But whether Trump wins or not it’s not really going to matter because whatever happens in the Presidential election, the machinery of Government that controls just about every aspect of American life, will be still be calling the shots.

The American Government is supposed to be “by the people, for the people, and of the people” and it’s tempting to believe that everything that Government does is ultimately for the good and that they can be trusted to look out for its citizens.

After all, Hillary Clinton recently said, “The government is all of us.” But in truth, the Government is not all of us, it is only some of us, and those few, run the U.S. government who control the police, the armed forces, the financial industry, the medical industry, the education industry, and most of the major parts of the economy.

The U.S. Government comprises of some 22 million tax-funded employees who “govern” through thousands of federal, state, and local bureaucracies. 

That’s more than the entire populations of Ireland, Switzerland, New Zealand, Cyprus, Estonia, Latvia, and Iceland combined. These 22 million unelected government employees will be “governing” before and after the election – regardless of who is elected President.

And you’ll continue to pay their salaries, regardless of how or if you voted. In other words, everybody’s personal choices and freedoms in America are subject to permission from a bureaucrat working for some political regime. 

Love him or Hate him

Love or hate Trump, this election, (as with all elections), isn’t about any particular individual. It’s about the political system itself. It’s about the centralization of power.

The crazy thing isn’t that people have strong emotional convictions about Trump (one way or the other), or about any other power-seeker. It’s that the individual anointed as “president” literally has the power to end the world.

Now THAT is Power!

Centralization of Power

Politicians love the idea of centralization of power, the more centralized the power is the more monopolization of power they can achieve and as that power becomes entrenched, compulsion becomes institutionalized, and the wealth gap widens. Which is what many are seeing in America to-day. 

In politics, power-seekers with the most money have the most say, no matter what political system operates. The golden rule of politics has always been, “Those who have the gold, rule.” 

Who Has the Gold?

The U.S. holds around 8,133 tons of gold. The members of the euro zone and European Central Bank hold around 10,788 tons. Russia has around 1,447 tons.Donald Trump for President

China reports holdings of 1,788 tons. But actual holdings are closer to 4,000 tons, based on reliable data from Hong Kong exports and Chinese mining. 

Gold will be the new 21st-century weapon for financial wars.

The US and the Eurozone have been selling Gold. Russia and China have been buying. Russia has been acquiring over 200 tons per year.

China has $3.2 trillion in reserves, over half of which is denominated in U.S. dollars. They fear, rightly, that the U.S. will inflate its way out of its $19 trillion mountain of debt. China’s solution is to buy gold. If dollar inflation emerges, China’s Treasury holdings will devalue, but the dollar price of its gold will soar. A large gold reserve is a prudent diversification and that’s just what they have been doing.

 A Con Game

The notion that politicians should be our protectors from the risks of the world in exchange for us paying them taxes is how they trick us into thinking we need them. Decentralization, not centralization is the way to independence and freedom.

Is the system corrupt? Depends on your perspective. The Government is working as designed. It’s set up for anything but change. Those in power want to remain and keep their power centralized and concentered.

For those who believe voting for a new president, matters. Know that despite how you vote or who wins, the machinery of Government will be still be calling the shots and that’s by design. Not because of how you choose to vote.

Politics is a Racket

Politics is about ‘divide then conquer’ Divide the citizens into sub-groups; blacks, gays, workers, men, women, unions, policial parties etc so will they fight to gain ‘special’, favors, regulations and appeasements. Which is why Politics is the biggest racket on earth.

If that strikes you as deeply wrong. Then embrace decentralization and freedom, not the political racket marketed to you as a ‘democracy‘. If people are to govern themselves, they need to be free to make their own decisions, not have others’ decisions imposed on them by the 197 political gangs that exist in the world.

Government Efforts to Suppress

There have always been efforts by governments to suppress and undermine the idea of decentralization. People who cherish the word democracy really owe their affections to decentralization and independence. 

The ‘Founding Fathers’ were both lovers of independence and tax haters. They revolted against the British regime over being taxed from afar. There was no income tax at all under the “absolute Tyranny” of King George, but a 2-3% sales tax on certain goods made them throw down the gauntlet of rebellion.

Today the Founders would be branded “extremists” and locked up under the Patriot Act. So with the spirit of the Founder’s tax rebellion in mind, consider the irony that the government they established enforces invasive and widespread attacks on liberty and personal freedom that will continue no matter who wins the election.

The ConstitutionDonald Trump for President

The whole idea of the constitution was to limit the power of the federal government. The 10th Amendment made it clear: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Research

According to research and recent analysis released in December 2015, by the Pew Research Center, the majority of Americans no longer live in the middle class, due to decades of declining industry and erosion of the financial stability and family-wage jobs. The report defines middle-income households as an income between $42,000 and $125,000 per year.

With this shrinking of the middle class, falling incomes, social inequality has risen and people are increasing becoming disillusioned with Washington and this in part has fueled the rise of Donald Trump.

Britain Leaving the E.U

Although, the unexpected decision sent shockwaves across global financial markets and Britain’s currency, the pound, plunged to its lowest level since 1985. The fact that the British, have voted to leave the EU shouldn’t have been the surprise it was.

Just like in most of the world, British citizens have seen their standard of living slowly deteriorating for decades. Jobs have disappeared, economic stability is weak, small towns have languished and welfare checks have become the norm for many families. Most communities are fed up with cuts, fed up with economic dislocation and are feeling angry at the way they’ve been betrayed and marginalized by those in authority.

Who could blame them for wanting to try something, different? This is what makes Trump polarizing. He is that something different. And he could well be the unexpected President-elect that will also send shockwaves through the financial markets

Don’t Rely on The Government

It’s not the President or the Government that is going to save the economy.

It is the people who take their economic security into their own hands. People who want to make a difference in the world and who provide value and benefits to others. It will be the innovators, the entrepreneurs, the superheroes, that will bring about the economic salvation that the world desperately needs. 

By pursuing their passions, their interests, their freedom and affections for decentralization and independence. These are the people who are the real benefactors to society. Whereas politicians are just liars and looters, pedaling promises and outrageous scams. Distorting the truth and clouding reality.

It is going to be people like you and me and if you are asking yourself what can you do? What skills do you have, how can you provide values and benefits to others?

Then what I about to tell you next may interest you.

The Future

There has never been a more important time to take control of your own financial future and embrace today’s latest technology revolution (the Internet) and seriously consider building an online business.

Imagine for a moment that you are spending time with your family or are watching a movie, or enjoying yourself with friends while generating an income on autopilot without relying on the government. 

Seriously! This is the reality of many people who have websites working for them.

    Hi Peter,

    That’s great stuff here – I’ve got your free e-book and am anticipating reading what you have to say, as i’m just starting out on this myself.

    I know it’s basically hard work! But actually, it’s good fun to do at the same time (otherwise it’d be a chore, may as well go back to 9-5) – so I’m hoping for some hints and tips from an obvious expert!

    Cheers!

    ~andy~

    • Peter

      Hello, Andy Thanks for your comments I’m sure you will find plenty of useful tips in the eBook on Affiliate Marketing that you can use to improve your online business as it’s exactly what I would have wanted when I was just starting out so I wrote it with that in mind Enjoy 🙂

  • Jeremy

    Hi there,
    I liked your website overall and it had some great content. It seemed like it was all over the place though. I would focus on one of those categories and then tie that into wealthy affiliate. I liked your images and how everything was presented. The videos were a great touch too.

    • Peter

      Hello, Jeremy Thank you for your comments and feedback I will make some adjustments thank you. Hope you enjoy the eBook I am sending your way 🙂

  • Jovo

    You really made a huge loop in this text, started from Trump, discussing gold status in the world, EU crisis, to come to online business.

    So you are skeptical as I understand, and it does not really matter who is going to win. I feel it like this: which bad option is worse. On one hand Trump has proven himself, yes he failed as you rightly say, but he created a lot. How about its counterpart? I see nothing good really, except the fact that a women could become the US president. This is a right step for the society and for women in particular, but only from that perspective. I say Trump in the end.

    • Peter

      Hello, Jovo Yes I did and it all comes down to the individual because that is who is really the most important in the world. We can no longer reply on the politicians to look out for us so we need to seriously consider options that we can control and have fun doing something about. Thanks for your comments. 🙂

  • Chun

    Great article. I know a little about Donald Trump from Rich dad, Robert Kiyosaki about his mind on business. Money is power, from rich dad, and now Donald Trump is seeking for another great power which will make him one of the most powerful people in the world. But if change your perspective to good one, businessman simply know how to control the cash flow from the other country to the US compared to Obama.

    Whether he won the election or not, a politician is a politician. We cannot rely on them. That’s why rich dad doesn’t like the government. Cheer =D

    • Peter

      Hello Chun. Appreciate the comments and please watch out for the ebook I am sending your way. Creating a successful online business is one way to build your own economic future without relying on the Government to save you. Love him or hate him, the trumpster has certainly attracted a lot of attention. 🙂

  • Alfred James

    Awesome article, I like the way you develop the theme about Donald Trump and give us an objective view about this businessmen, many people can love and hate Trump, but actually he is a really success in his industry, in politics he is another thing.

    Really great website, I like the products you are promoting because I can see that there are really useful, thanks for share.

    • Peter

      Hello Alfred

      Thank you for the comments and also for not getting too emotional about Trump haha Some people get very upset that I am either promoting him OR bagging him!

      When I really don’t make a call either way BUT they see it one way or the other and they leave comments I can’t even post…

      Look out for the eBook I am sending your way as a thank you cheers 🙂

  • Steve

    Peter, that’s a ton of great information. It left me with some great food for thought, and I’m going to come back and read this again tomorrow.

    My favorite part of this is that you advocate that one take their own financial security into one’s own hands. Too many of us in the world, swimming against the current so-to-speak, tend to think that our futures are tied as our hands are with the political fiefdoms!

    Of course, your advocacy of personal financial freedom is wrapped in an invitation to Wealthy Affiliate, which I really agree with and am biased in my thinking. I like how you did that.

    • Hello, Steve thank you for your comments and I appreciate your feedback and I am sending you an eBook “Affiliate Marketing Made Easy” as a thank you so watch out for it in your inbox. 🙂

  • Holly

    Amazing article – thank you for sharing. You have definitely given me some food for thought! It really is amazing how people are governed by their emotions when it comes to politics. I think Trump is someone to be admired even if he is a bit like Marmite (love him or hate him!). Also, thank you for sharing your own personal story about getting started… it can be difficult but as long as you keep going, then you can rely on yourself and not be controlled by the powers that be! How long did it take before you started seeing a good enough income form affiliate marketing to go it alone? Thanks for the inspiring words 🙂

    Holly

    • Peter

      Hello, Thank you for your comments Holly. Yes, many people get very emotional when it comes to politics, a bit like a mother protecting her baby even though family and government are nothing alike. Ohhh Politicians will try to convince people they are one and the same BUT they most certainly are not.

      Anyway the message in the post is don’t rely on them and take control of your own financial situation an d building an online business is one way to take back control over your life.

      I appreciate your feedback and look out for the book that is coming your way. :

  • Dave

    God if I had as much money as Donald Trump I wouldn’t know what to do with it! The political system in any country is always a mine field and I struggle to tell where the power actually lies and what the consequences of my vote will be. In the end I just try to focus on anything I can control, and starting a business online is definitely one of those things

    • Peter

      Hello Dave, I totally agree with you and there has never been a more important time to take control of your own financial future and embrace today’s latest technology revolution (the Internet) and seriously consider building an online business. Thank you so much for your comments. 🙂

  • Angela

    Very interesting article you have here on the upcoming presidential race. You are right it will be scary for millions of individuals on who wins and who does not win. You have given your readers some very good points to consider when it comes to voting and how the outcome might be.
    Yes, only one will win, so when using your right to vote, it is up to the people to decide on who could be best for the presidential spot.
    Perhaps some changes need to be made for the betterment of all.
    Thanks for an interesting read.
    Angela

    • Peter

      Hi, Angela. Politics is politics and more often than not a hot issue for many as most cannot discuss it without becoming emotionally irrational in their views. I have tried to be neutral in this post but some have taken it to mean I am Anti Trump and others Pro Trump and they have sent me PM’s to tell me so!. Haha I remain mute on my own view however but it has been an interesting post to write nonetheless. Thank you for your comments. 🙂

  • Momma Bear

    I agree that this political race will continue to be one like America has never seen. Divide and conquer is definitely what seems to be going on. The closer that we get the conventions and into the real race, the more nervous I get about what lies ahead. What a nice way to tie in affiliate marketing and essentially the need to take care of yourself because no one else is going to! Love your site.

    • Peter

      Hello, Momma Bear Thank you for your comments and praise 🙂 Yes ‘The Donald’ has certainly made this election an interesting one for sure. I hope you also enjoy the ebook I am sending your way. 🙂

  • ayman

    Hey Peter,

    Great work! Love the site. Perfect analysis on Republican Candidate Trump.. I must certainly agree Wealthy Affiliate is certainly a very honest, spam free environment. Keep up the great work and I look forward to your success! Also, success to future America! BTW- great political views. Love the way you bring politics and affiliate marketing together ; indeed very creative!

    • Peter

      Hello, Ayman Thanks for the positive comments, I thought it might be an interesting topic to research and bring to peoples attention but the underlying facts about politics in America. Enjoy the book that is coming your way for leaving a comment. 🙂

  • Denise

    Wow, I must give it to you. You know you politics. This Trump phenomenon is a very interesting one but as you say it is not about a person but is about the country as a whole.
    I in a way like that Mr Trump joined the race because people can no longer have the illusion that Americans are so United. On the contrary, we are divided by race, sex, socio-economic status and ideology. I enjoyed reading this post.

    • Peter

      Hello, Denise. Yes Politicians try to get your vote by any underhanded means possible and they love creating problems and then ask for your vote to help them solve the same problem they created. I typical strategy is to divide the people and then conquer them. This works well because while everyone is looking at other people we are not looking at them. Thanks for your comments. 🙂

  • Eyal

    Hi peter,
    I really liked your analize. Actually I am very cinical man so I’m not trust the goverment for years. I tried in the past open a bussiness relying on affiliate marketing but it didn’t go well. Do you have a successful bussiness right now? Is it let you quit your day job? How many hours do I need to invest in order to have success?
    Thanks alot

    • Peter

      Hello, Eyal Yes, The prospect of Donald Trump becoming President, for millions of people, would be a welcomed godsend. For millions of others, it would be their worst nightmare come to life.

      The answer to how long it will take comes down to you and your commitment.Trying to make money online on your own can be difficult. Most people fail because they give up before they ever put all the pieces together. yet, it’s only tough if you don’t have someone helping you and giving you good advice. However by having someone taking you through the steps, teaching you what you need to know. You will be able to create a highly tuned income generating, online business site that brings in a monthly income.

      I hope you enjoy the book I am sending you for leaving a comment. 🙂

  • Wade

    Hi Peter

    I am trying to grasp some sense from the US elections (being from little New Zealand, nice to see we made your post!) and I really liked your explanation on how the whole thing is run.

    I think there has to be some common sense that the government is really controlling the country and the president is a figurehead, with some major powers added to the mix.

    Decentralisation would be an interesting concept, I bet with MANY (22 million) anti-lobbyists to try to fight it.

    Is this something that is gaining any momentum in the States?

    Cheers

    Wade

    • Peter

      Hello Wade. Firstly I too, am a Kiwi. and secondly and this applies to Prime Ministers also, It’s not the President or the Government that is going to save the economy. It is the people who take their economic security into their own hands. People who want to make a difference in the world and who provide value and benefits to others.Affiliate marketing and the internet are tools that can help many people achieve that by providing solutions and value to other people.

      Most communities are fed up with cuts, fed up with economic dislocation and are feeling angry at the way they’ve been betrayed and marginalized by those in authority so it is something that may well gain traction in the US and if Trump get elected then that’s the TELL that things are heading that way.

      Thank you for your comments. 🙂

  • Benjamin

    Great article, it has really opened my eyes and how the political powers work in the United States.

    If it was up to me I would rather Barrack Obama to remain president. But then again I don’t know too much about his reign.

    Obama definitely seems like the ideal president in my opinion. Is it true that presidents can only lead for set terms or years?

    If it was up to me I what rather someone else than Trump to be president. He seems like a show boat and a cocky infant!

    • Peter

      Hello, Benjamin Yes the President is limited to two terms of 4 years each (4×2) But politics is politics no matter which country or system you have. It’s all smoke and mirrors and B.S. Thanks for your comments. 🙂
