Ed Rollin’s wrote an interesting piece recently about the Election of 2016 and the “cage fight” we are about to witness.
In this corner representing the Republican Party is Donald Trump!
Trump is the guy whom the “wise men” said earlier wasn’t going to run, wouldn’t file his financial disclosure forms and couldn’t survive close scrutiny of his version of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.”
He certainly couldn’t survive a drawn-out campaign or a brokered convention.
And having insulted every past nominee of his party and just about every elected Republican, there was no way he could put it together and unify the party.

Yes, Trump is certainly “tough, media savvy…and has a killer instinct”, but that won’t be enough. He will also need additional funds, more substance to his repertoire, and more experienced policy advisors. All of which I am sure he has planned for and has sitting in the wings.
One thing is for certain, with this match – Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump – it’s about voting for socialism or for free enterprise. Let the match begin. Two go in the cage: only one comes out! Take your seat near the ringside folks and…
