So since I last posted, Trump has sewn up the nomination. This is not a joke, it’s a fact. He should get to 1237 delegates before the convention. And as such, will be the Republican Candidate to oppose Hillary Clinton for POTUS.
As I stated many times, there were only two viable candidates for the right side of the aisle. NEITHER WERE GOP FAVORITES! Cruz or Trump.
Now I’d like to do a quick Post-mortem on the Cruz campaign.
Cruz was the best possible candidate as far as conservative record in government. In a normal world, conservatives would have united behind him based on just a few of his actions. But we didn’t and the reason is all Ted Cruz’s fault.
Ted Cruz and his campaign made a huge error by thinking the American people wanted church from their politicians. Ted Cruz decided to use the bible as a weapon when it should have been used as a guide. The American people (R’s) are mostly fine with Christianity on Sunday’s from pastors, but when politician’s preach it’s a bit unnerving. I get that.
Now onto the Trump win. Why did he win? He won because he spoke like a normal person, an egomaniac, an outsider and he didn’t take any shit without dishing it back ten fold.
I have said I’d vote for either one of them in the general election. And I will. But let’s talk a minute about the Never Trump movement.
Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell are all against Trump, ALL are openly hostile to the thought of a Trump presidency. The key word is OPENLY. Because if they’re that OPEN about their dislike, you can bet behind close doors, they’re backing HILLARY. I’ll let that resonate a minute.
Now let’s look at the Never Trump movement that say they are TRUE conservatives, who are aligned with the RINO’s I mentioned above. Dana Laesch, Glenn Beck, Ben Shapiro and Several other pundits are all in against Trump because they feel Trump played us all and he’s really a liberal. I’ll let that percolate right there for a minute to see if you catch it.
Then let me spell it out: Trump has united “Conservatives” and the far left of the Republican party, that gave us more spending, more debt, more laws, screwed veterans, more money for illegals and refugee’s, obamacare, TPP as well as the Omnibus bill. The Omnibus bill that even Pelosi said they couldn’t get through if Dem’s were in charge I might add.
Now, these Never Trump “Conservatives” are working actively with those they have been railing against since 2008 to deny Trump the presidency. How in the hell does that make any sense?
Cruz conservatives, most of us understand what is at stake. Some are just plain lost in emotion. But it didn’t really matter which one was the nominee. I know for a fact that 80% of the Trump supporters that are berating Never Trump’rs would be Never Cruz’rs if he won. You know it, I know it but it is what it is.
So where do we go from here?
I contend that Reagan wasn’t Reagan until he was given a chance to be Reagan. In 1980 there was a movement to stop Reagan too. That movement was headed up by John Anderson. It didn’t work then. But then we had real men in America, we had a better education system. Who knows this time.
My point is, if you’re happy with the way things are going, vote Hillary, If you’re not happy with the candidates and want to stay home, at least vote Hillary and be man about it rather than a bitch and deflect the blame to everyone else.
If we refuse to give a man a chance to do his best, to be great or suck then it’s on us. He has given his time, money and effort to show you he wants it, he got more votes than our guy, to deny him the opportunity is to say to the people who voted for him “I know better than you guys” Which is a tyrannical view we rail against.
I say give Trump a chance if he sucks, then in four years, we’ll run his ass out. IF he does great he’ll be 8yrs and America will be great again.
