"How does the nature of the USA president affect our ability to gather or recruit Objectivists? Is Trump a businessman or a showman?"
What's so fearful about it? Why shouldn't he be both? After all, every businessman must use advertising to sell what he produces, else how would potential buyers become aware of what's new on the market?
Why do I hold on to Trump for the next term? Because of what I said in my post: Because Objectivists need all the precious time they can get to spread and increase - which means advertising from person to person - the mass of adherents. That's the way things run among the human societies when it comes to products and/or ideas. We will get this precious more time as long as there's liberty to make Objectivist ideas better and more widely known. With leftwingers we're out, for the only way these know on how to "convince" consists in eliminating any adversary, which subjects the rest of the population to fear of being the next in line. Shouldn't you agree with what I just said, read history. Did Communists, Socialists, Fascists, Nazis: Lanin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Kim-Yong-un, Guevara, Chaves/Maduro or you name it ever proceeded any differently?
So that's why I stand by Americans voting again for Trump, out of sheer need for time. And, quite beside if you want to, he's good for business and people having jobs to keep their lifestyle. They wouldn't have it with leftwingers ruling. Look at Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela, Former East Germany, Russia, China and so forth. Aren't these sufficient reason?
