Scott portrayed General George S. Patton of World War II fame. The Opening monologue in "Patton" was memorable and set the tone for the Generals character in the movie. At the time, the speech was considered rough and crude. So much so, it wasnt unusual for some viewers to walk out of the theater after only the opening sequence. It was most definitely not politically correct for the times. Actually, the speech was a compilation of several speeches Patton had delivered, not just one. Nonetheless, he said and meant every word. His "Blood and Guts" no-nonsense style captivated viewers which was rather unusual during the age of the hippie revolution and the Viet Nam War. <<snip>> Patton's politically incorrect ways embarrassed General Eisenhower on more than one occasion, causing Ike to reprimand him. Nonetheless, Ike knew George was his best battle field commander causing him to recall Patton back to the front and turning him loose on the Nazis. Patton liked to characterize his relationship with Ike, as what General William Tecumseh Sherman was to Gen. U.S. Grant during the Civil War. Sherman was a ruthless warrior who split the South. He may have lacked polish, but he got results. "Patton" was a movie sensation at the box office, and won the Academy Award for Best Picture, Best Actor (Scott), Best Director, and four other awards. It touched a nerve with the American people who appreciated Patton's straight-forward approach as opposed to what they were witnessing in Viet Nam at the time. The parallel between Patton and Donald J. Trump is uncanny. Trump is politically incorrect and doesn't sugar-coat his position on anything. Like Patton, he relies on offense when conducting business or campaigning for president. And as should be obvious by now, this election is not politics as usual, this is war. <<snip>> Like Patton, Trump doesn't seem to care about political correctness. As a businessman, he cares about addressing the true problems and talks about them openly. Let's face it, nobody wants Donald Trump to win except the voters. Point him in the right direction, like Ike did with Patton, and he will be unafraid to form ranks and conquer his objectives. "Alright now you sons-of-bitches, you know how I feel. Oh, I will be proud to lead you wonderful guys into battle anytime, anywhere. That's all." - ("Patton") Keep the Faith!
