Why Support Donald Trump?

Sundance at The Last Refuge gives some pretty good reasons for supporting Donald Trump.  Those reasons are that, let's face it, the Republican Party is unlikely to stop the progressive onslaught.  To the contrary, the Republicans support the left's policy agendas more than they oppose them.
Sundance writes about his support for Donald Trump:
So why support him [DonaldTrump]?

Argument #1 – After all, he’s been a democrat, an independent, a Republican, and well, I have consistently despised Charlie Crist.

Counter Argument – Then again, what about Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, and Orin Hatch, and Lindsey Graham, and John McCain, and John Cornyn, and Thad Cochran and, well, you get the point…. What’s the difference between supporting those consistently Republican “Republicans” only to have them advocate for liberal/progressive policies.

Are the aforementioned better because they didn’t change party registration, yet act like Democrats?

Let me first explain something few fully comprehend – and fewer still, are willing accept. People like us rail against the “establishment” because, despite the GOP claims to the contrary, they never actually do anything to stop the liberal policy agenda. One only has to look at President Obama’s veto record (four in 6.5 years) to accept that only legislation Obama agrees with is reaching his desk.
Something must be done to have an effective opponent to liberal Democrat policies. We won't get it with another RINO candidate. We need to shake things up. We need to put the fear of God into the squishy, pliable, good-ole-boy club that takes our votes for granted, and who consistently ignore what conservatives want. Is Trump the perfect candidate? No, but who is? His one, immensely saving grace is that he is not a part of the mainstream Republican establishment. I'll vote for him on that basis alone.
