When Donald John Trump announced his candidacy for the 2016 presidential election at the Trump Tower to an audience of about a thousand supporters on a blustery New York morning on June 16, 2015, no one could’ve anticipated the impact that he would have on this election cycle. No one (aside from Ann Coulter) could’ve even envisioned Mr. Trump winning the GOP presidential nomination. Unbeknownst to anyone at the time – even Mr. Trump himself -, there was a leadership void within the Republican Party that was crying out to be filled.

The billionaire’s no-nonsense style, outsider status, business savvy and keen political instincts drew in the support of blocks of politically frustrated middle class conservatives, tea partiers and Ron Paul’s orphaned paleolibertarians, who were all looking for a champion to lead them and give their struggle a voice. In the following months, these disparate groups of voters organically coalesced into a powerful coalition which has propelled Mr. Trump’s candidacy from the fringes of the race to the summit of the Republican nomination leaderboard with surprising, albeit controversial, ease.

And to think, the teetotaler wasn’t even certain about running as late early 2015. There were real fears that similar to the general elections of 1988, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012, Mr. Trump would not make a bid for the nomination despite giving indications that he might.

His giddying ascension in the polls has been met with incredulous wonder by the media and more established candidates who have long fallen to the wayside. His combative performances in the debates left his opponents tongue-tied, much to the delight of his supporters. His controversial off-the-cuff deliveries and political incorrectness are viewed proudly by his legion of followers. His war cry, Make America Great Again, has galvanized even the elderly to attend his lively rallies.

Mr. Trump’s in-your-face style has drawn a lot of flak from all corners, but only a fool would doubt that there is a method behind his apparent madness. As the former reality TV star has demonstrated repeatedly throughout his career, his audacity is always accompanied by a ferocious intelligence.

There is simply no denying that Mr. Trump has changed the face of American politics forever. And the prospect of a businessman being elected to the White House has rekindled century-old memories of the Roaring Twenties when entrepreneurs such as Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover occupied the Oval Office.

Mr. Trump’s nationalist populist brand of politics captured the imagination of the nation, and powered his victory in the Republican primaries. However, will the charismatic real estate tycoon be able to use an identical approach in his White House run, or will he pivot to the center and reign in his explosive personality? Will he be able to unite the party’s fractured base and win over the agitated social conservatives? Will Miley Cyrus move out of the country if Mr. Trump is elected?

Citizen, entrepreneur, advocate for equal treatment for all


Samm Tittle’s political philosophy can be summed up in one short phrase: “Equal Treatment For All, Because No One Is Above The Law.” This uniquely American notion is the common thread in all of Tittle’s policy positions. For this daughter of immigrants who grew up in a working class family in El Paso, Texas and who worked extremely hard to achieve the American Dream, making sure that everyone has a fair shot to succeed is very important.

Dividing her time between El Paso and Albuquerque, where she worked for her grandparents, brought Tittle into contact with people of many cultures, many of whom were immigrants trying to make their way in the United States and become loyal and productive American citizens. Tittle gained a great appreciation for these hard working immigrants and came to understand that most immigrants come to America not to take from it, but to give back to it.

Through hard work, Tittle became a successful entrepreneur and came to understand that if government was run like a well-oiled business the country and the economy would be in a much better place. For Tittle, jobs are the most important thing because with no job there is no freedom. When an individual has a job they are contributing members of society and many of the problems the country faces are solved.

Tittle is a strong advocate for fairness, equality, transparency and the rule of law. These are thing things she is passionate about. She is a firm believer that no one is above the law, and that we are all in the same boat. Her campaign will be centered on the promise to hold the government accountable for its actions and restore the trust between the American people and their government
