The header photo (above) gives you the idea. When Dennis Michael Lynch announced his candidacy for President of the United States in 2016 during a speech in Scottsdale, Arizona, the audience was on its feet immediately.
There’s a reason for that.
Or maybe not. That is, if you feel our nation is absolutely on the right track, that President Obama is the best thing since sliced bread, and that Hillary Clinton is the only way to go in 2016, Lynch might not be your cup of tea.
But he’s got my support all the way. If you study this man a bit, you may find out he’s got yours, too.
So…Dennis Michael who, you say? Great question, though not one that can be fully answered in a one page post like this. The best we can do here is throw out a few details and hope you the reader will take the time to watch the embedded video.
I first became aware of this man’s existence through his documentary on our nonexistent southern border, They Come to America, a few years ago. Lynch understands the situation.
“The number one problem in this country is illegal immigration.”
Why yes. Yes, it is. But there’s more to this fellow than that; he’s hardly a one issue candidate. For starters, he’s a New Yorker who believes in the Second Amendment and would never come after your guns. His father was a 1/9 Marine, meaning a member of the 1st Battalion 9th Marines, which during the Vietnam War suffered the highest casualty rate in Marine Corps history. In fact, their shoulder patch listed them quite accurately as The Walking Dead, and David Michael’s Dad unsurprisingly suffers from PTSD in a big way.
“I am appalled by the way our veterans are treated in this country.”
Ah, who am I kidding? I can’t sum up this man with mere text.
Frankly, I didn’t intend to publish this post tonight. All I wanted to do was watch a minute or two of his announcement speech, set up a draft to complete later, and go to bed. Sleep sounded good. But who was I kidding? David Michael Lynch grabbed my attention from the get-go as he always does, and the rest was history.
Perhaps the most powerful words he uttered were simply,
“I don’t get into fights I don’t think I can win.”
Yes, I know. As a conservative, I’ve seen the best candidates for high office in this country crushed time and time and time again. It can get downright disheartening, that sort of thing. And yet…and yet I’m unable to keep my spirits down about Lynch’s chances. He’s no fool. He understands what he’s up against; nothing the Liberals, Progressives, RINOS, Raza, or for that matter Isis can throw at him–none of that will catch him off guard. He sees it all coming well in advance; in fact, he predicted the jihadist beheadings in the USA and was dead on target, excuse my horrible choice of words.
“Political correctness has screwed this country.”
I’ll stop here for now. There’ll be more in the months and years ahead. When Lynch’s new movie, Fighting for America, comes out–well, that ought to stir things up a bit.
In the meantime, feel free to comment. Between now and November 2016, the debate should prove lively indeed.
