Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States? The GOP’s chickens have come home to roost.
It is definitely an interesting time when we see that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States. Many “so-called conservative” pundits are now continuing with the Never Trump mantra.
It’s important to examine how and why this has happened. The two big government parties have no one to blame but themselves.
TEA Party conservatives, libertarians, and constitutionalists already know that the Progressives are really just big government loving socialists and communists. There is little explanation that needs to be said here about the Democratic Party. Most understand that the Democratic Party is run by radical leftists with an ideology that is anathema to our Constitutional Republic. They really don’t figure into the Trump equation.
Many conservatives and libertarians in the Tea Party / Patriot movement got involved because they were angry with the status quo of the Republican Party. They worked hard to get Republicans elected who claimed conservative credentials. However, throughout the Bush Administration and the Obama Administration, the so-called conservatives behaved like there was nothing they could do and sold out again, and again. Many of us recognize this was nothing new. It is been going on for a long time. Ronald Reagan was in favor of an assault weapons ban, but you won’t hear that from these conservative pundits who attempt to deify Ronald Reagan as “the standard” by which all other current legislators are measured.
Really what we see on a national level is a Republican and Democrat flavor of the big government anti-liberty party. This is a two sided party run by “Insiders” who know better than the “rabble”.
Hillary Clinton will carry on more of the same policies that the Nobel Peace Prize-winning President has started. The Middle East is in chaos because of the intervention by Obama and Bush. More of our brave soldiers and diplomats will be hung out to die like the brave Americans in Benghazi Libya were while on Hillary’s watch as Secretary of State. The name Clinton is synonymous with corruption, and I can imagine the government will only get worse with Hillary in the driver’s seat. We will continue to have an invasion on our Southern border.
The rhetoric from Ted Cruz’ campaign seemed to suggest that he was a political outsider. However, he has worked in government virtually his entire life. Cruz’ wife was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and has ties to one of the big Wall Street Banks. Many are rightfully suspicious of these connections. Many bible-believing Christians are concerned about Cruz’ ties to Dominion Theologists.
It seems to me that we had the choice between two real political insiders. And then there’s Trump. Make no mistake about it, Donald Trump is a wildcard. Nobody can say for sure what he is going to do. What Trump demonstrated in the Republican debates was that he was not afraid of speaking his mind. There is no doubt we can do without the vulgarity. However, his stance on illegal immigration is what gets him some of the biggest applause lines anywhere. He is stating the obvious. Things that need to be said and done.
The question is, given how many Americans feel betrayed by the political insiders, is it worth the risk to vote for Trump? It is pretty clear Trump is not controlled by anyone. That is what seems to be the appeal of him. I contend that is why many conservatives have been voting for Trump, knowing he is not a conservative. Trump is a pragmatist, but he is not controlled. The general public is starting to wake up to the idea that the system is rigged. Americans want America put first, not special interests. Donald Trump is speaking to this, whether or not he believes it is another question.
If Trump finds his way to the White House, maybe his wildcard factor will open the eyes of Americans to the fact that we should not have an “all powerful imperial” President. Maybe the Trump wildcard factor will be a catalyst for reassertion of Sovereignty by the States. Maybe the Trump wildcard factor will be an incentive for Congress to actually do their job and restrain all the unconstitutional activities / agencies of the federal government. If that is the result of a potential Trump presidency, that may be a wildcard worth playing.
