Trump, the Modern Day Wyatt Earp?

Tired of the chronic trashing of Trump in The Economist, my brother just sent this letter to them. The analogy is interesting enough that I thought I'd share it here:

Now that you have ruled Donald Trump unfit to be president, you need to know that the people who voted for him did not elect a president, they elected a gunfighter. America has a colorful history of towns hiring gunfighters to clean out the bad guys and restore law and order. Just as Wyatt Earp was hired to get the Clantons out of Tombstone, Donald Trump was hired to get the Clintons out of Washington. So far he has accomplished three major goals he was hired for: (1) he prevented Hillary Clinton from occupying the White House; (2) he placed a conservative justice on the Supreme Court; and (3) he has reversed rule by bureaucratic decrees in favor of laws passed by Congress.

The answer to the gunfighter will not be another eastern elitist who knows what is best for the American people. It will be a Congress that does its job and provides leadership and a Supreme Court that enforces the Constitutional separation of powers in Washington.

The people who hired gunfighters often lived in fear of them and were anxious to see them go away once their job was done. That will probably be the case with Donald Trump. Until then, the Economist should be thankful that the Democrats’ progressive march toward global socialism was shot down. The alternative could have been another American tradition – vigilante justice.

    Trump would never bring a knife to a gunfight. Instead he brings bazookas, flame throwers, hand grenades, and a nuke just in case. He doesn't like to loose. Yay!

    Yep, new sheriff in town, by golly!

    Well said and thanks for sharing! Every time I pick up "The Economist" on the news stand I notice the leftward slide and put it back on the rack. Haven't even bothered lately so based on this, I figure it is even more left.

    All the long winded posts on insignificant posts. THIS is THE REAL DEAL. Too bad the media won't consider this observation. Bully! Mahalo!

    Characteristics of a gunfighter:
    Experience honed by practice.
    Self confidence.
    No fear of commitment.
    Bluster to throw his opponent off and question his confidence.
    A good gunfighter like a good gambler, knows that he cannot cheat to win. But like a good gambler, he doesn't mind having an edge. Like a gambler, if he gets a chance to see his opponent in action, he'll look for a tell in order to get that edge.
    I think that the Gulch can come up with a few more characteristics..

      Hi Herb7734,
      Those are all good characteristics. I like the gambler analogy. If I might add Patience. Wait for the right time to pull the plug And drain the swamp.

    Great analogy. If the left continues to resist the agenda of "We the People", and keeps it from getting done, the alternative American tradition may still be in play. The stupid seems to be strong with the rinos and the dims, and they don't seem to realize how much they are despised. Yet.
