… TO OUR ERSTWHILE GOP COLUMNIST, TAYLOR BROWN
|| By FITSNEWS || Back in May, our erstwhile GOP columnist Taylor Brown penned a column about the soon-to-be-announced presidential candidacy of billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump. At the time, Trump was polling in the single digits and huge swaths of the “Republican” electorate said they would never vote for him.
Hard to believe, right?
Anyway, from Brown’s column …
Trump has a knack for saying exactly what the other politicians want to say – and are probably thinking – but are too scared to actually say it. It’s unfiltered truth that resonates with people who have “heard it all before,” and Trump has a unique ability to tap into this audience.
Has Trump’s unfiltered truth resonated?
Um, yes – it’s resonated like no one could have possibly imagined.
Anyway, we were checking the FITS mailbox earlier this week when we stumbled on a gold-embossed envelope from the Trump organization addressed to Brown. So our founding editor called her up, met her for lunch and delivered the missive.
Take a look …

“In case you were wondering, Mr. Trump wrote ‘Taylor, I hope you are happy—and THANKS!'” Brown tweeted.
Very cool …
This website has yet to make a definitive determination on Trump’s candidacy (we’re waiting to see his tax and spending proposals), but we are thrilled by what his candidacy has done for the debate up to this point.
Trump has tossed the political script, exposed the “Republican” establishment for the fraud it is, survived a relentless “conservative” media onslaught and rolled out some substantive ideas on hot-button issues: All of which is good.
Like Brown said, his lack of a filter has been very “refreshing.”
Let’s hope he keeps it up …
