Description

From Amazon summary of The Case for Trump by Victor Davis Hanson:

---

An instant New York Times bestseller: From an award-winning historian and regular Fox contributor, the true story of how Donald Trump has become one of the most successful presidents in history -- and why America needs him now more than ever.

In The Case for Trump, award-winning historian and political commentator Victor Davis Hanson explains how a celebrity businessman with no political or military experience triumphed over sixteen well-qualified Republican rivals, a Democrat with a quarter-billion-dollar war chest, and a hostile media and Washington establishment to become president of the United States -- and an extremely successful president.

Trump alone saw a political opportunity in defending the working people of America's interior whom the coastal elite of both parties had come to scorn, Hanson argues. And Trump alone had the instincts and energy to pursue this opening to victory, dismantle a corrupt old order, and bring long-overdue policy changes at home and abroad. We could not survive a series of presidencies as volatile as Trump's. But after decades of drift, America needs the outsider Trump to do what normal politicians would not and could not do.

In a new format starting this month, a previously selected member will offer to the group a concise summary of the book followed by a contrast of the book's philosophy against Objectivism, the philosophy of Ayn Rand. Read the written book report here. Discussion will continue to determine whether others want to read the book themselves. Dinner at Ruby Tuesday will follow. Call (321) 544-7435 for questions or details.

STRATEGIC DISCUSSION

After twenty continuous years of running this Ayn Rand discussion group, remaining members need to address whether to continue and in what way. As we mature, values change to account for the increasing preciousness of remaining life expectancy. Come prepared to address these vital issues of matter and spirit and how this group best fulfills them.
