Or is he just trying to ingratiate himself with Red State Texans? Link
I admired him at first thinking he was a job creator. Now I grow wary of him.
It wouldn't surprise me if he took a run at the presidency one day. He's already an Oligarch of some influence so he could have his cake and eat it too if he were also president. Not to mention his wacky suicide mission to mars where he has solicited volunteers for the certain to be disastrous mission.
He's done some interesting things, or perhaps better described as stunts.
Back when I was dumber than I am at present I thought if a guy was good and successful at organizing a business, he would probably be good at managing the country successfully too (Ross Perot). At that time, I didn't consider that could be somewhat equal to the original description of fascism or corporatocracy. The US is somewhat a corpocracy as is since the candidates are often financed by corporations.
The Orange Menace and a few of his predecessors have proven to me that a greedy, unethical successful business person will continue to be such. They may even expand these negative qualities once elected to office, instead of being a public servant. My naive .02.
