It makes no sense for someone who writes for an audience to insult someone their audience supports. However, like Donald Trump, I’m not loyal to one party or any group of financial supporters. Unlike The Donald, I do this for free. Granted, there is probably a reason for that. So I endorse all comments calling me an amateur.
That said, Ladies and Gentlemen, can we please dispense with Donald Trump? He’s not a conservative. He has supported, at one time or another, everything we oppose. He’s also supported everything we’re for. He’s given money to most of the people we support and also given money to most of the people we despise.
I kept an open mind. I intended to keep an open mind for months, because that would be the smart thing to do.
Sure, if detonating the Republican Party explosive prematurely is the smart thing to do, then I’ll count myself out and call it a day.
Donald Trump can package messaging. He can rally the disenfranchised. He can say and do anything, poke his finger in the eye of the establishment, and mock our ridiculous political process. We love it, right? He’s a fighter. He tells it like it is. He says what others won’t say. So I guess he’s just like John Stewart and George Carlin. Why the hell hasn’t the Republican Party ever nominated them?
For the last 6 years we’ve had politicians fighting for their lives in Washington DC. Elected by us to do the People’s business, and thwarted at every turn by a Republican Party bought and paid for. Mike Lee, Justin Amash, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Thomas Massie, Mark Meadows, and Dave Brat. We sent these guys to Washington D.C. and let them loose on the establishment. Scott Walker fought the Unions… and won! They tried to recall him. He won.
But what? We threw a pebble at a mountain and it didn’t come down, and so now we need someone who will pretend to act as angry as we feel? We need low-class politics and pejoratives to make our case to a conservative base that already gave the Republican Party the House of Representatives without Donald Trump; and gave them the Senate without Donald Trump?
That the Establishment is fighting us more ruthlessly than ever isn’t a sign of failure, but of success! We don’t need Donald Trump. We need Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Hell, we even need Marco Rubio and Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal, and Ben Carson. But we don’t need Donald Trump.
Early on, I tried to explain the Trump appeal, because I thought that the folks that supported him would recognize why they were supporting him. Now… now that he’s proven himself to be an impossible candidate, you still support him, and I want an explanation.
Do I need to speak Trump? OK, then. Damn it, I want an explanation!
I want to understand why Trump is better than Ted Cruz. I want to know what Trump has done for the American People that Ted Cruz hasn’t. Where was Trump when Obamacare was moving through Congress? I want to know why Trump is better than Rand Paul. I want to know what Trump has done for the American People that Rand Paul hasn’t. Where was Donald Trump on NSA spying?
I want to know why Trump is better than Ben Carson. When Trump fails, he uses our laws to get out of taking responsibility, by filing for bankruptcy. If Carson fails, people would have died. Trump made money buying off Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell.
Ben Carson saved lives.
Bobby Jindal and Scott Walker have fought merciless battles that conservatives support, while Donald Trump played God on a reality TV show.
You are going to ignore all these gentlemen, because of the celebrity and perversity of Donald Trump?
If you’ve read my other articles, you know I know why you love him. You know I’m not mad at you or disrespecting you for loving him.
I just can’t believe that you’d ignore men and women who have been fighting for your positions, desires, philosophies, and values in Congress, while The Donald paraded himself around television so easily, and without second guessing yourselves. What has Donald Trump done for you, besides give voice to your anger? You don’t think these Governors, who refused Medicaid expansion, were taking risks for you? You don’t think these Senators that opposed ObamaCare and Planned Parenthood and threatened to shut down the government, were taking risks for you? All their trials and tribulations meant nothing?
Because Donald Trump can’t be bought?
You think Ted Cruz was bought when he called McConnell a liar?
I’ve heard the rhetoric. Everyone but Donald Trump is for sale.
You think Rand Paul was bought when he opposed NSA spying?
Friends – Please! Are we going to ignore the people who have been fighting day and night for us since the day we raised that Gadsden Flag?
To back Trump?
Look, I get it, I really do. I’m not trying to bash him or call him out. But I’ve been in this fight since 2006 and I never saw him at a rally and I never saw him backing one of our candidates. I never saw him fighting McConnell or Boehner. I saw him buy them off. And as he said, the reason he purchased them was because they were for sale in the first place! I mean, damn it, people, what are you doing? Really?
You are conservatives and libertarians and constitutionalists, and you’ve fought hard! You are going to abandon everyone you helped elect because that guy from Celebrity Apprentice wants to run the country?
I know this is a rant. I know its not a real “blog”. I just hate losing and I hate getting side-tracked by celebrity and media and $!#$!$%!#%$!# FCC Violations.
Take a minute tonight, would you? Look at Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and Ben Carson. Even look at the guys who have debated well that I can’t stand. Look at Mike Huckabee. Look at Carly Fiorina. Look at Bobby Jindal and Scott Walker.
I love Sandy Sanders – Hell, look at Jim Gilmore!
Please don’t threaten me with Trump. Not for the Republicans or Libertarians or Independents or Anyone. Stop it. Please. I get why you like him. I get why you are angry. Just consider what I’m saying, please, for a minute or two, and ask yourselves if Trump is really the guy for you.
