Four years ago I got a lot of people mad at me by pleading with them to vote for Mitt Romney for president. My motivation was simple: I wanted Obama to be denied a second term.
I would do it again. To this day I can’t imagine a President Romney lighting up the White House with rainbow lights to celebrate the Supreme Court’s imposition of “gay marriage” on America. I would do it again; but it wasn’t much fun the first time, and would be even less the second.
Now I have to decide whether I want to go through all that again, to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. Presuming she doesn’t get indicted between now and Election Day.
It’s difficult because the Republican primary is turning into a scorched-earth campaign. Rubio, Cruz, and Trump have been saying things about each other that cannot be easily taken back. They don’t seem terribly concerned with truth.
One of those three will win the nomination. The question is, how much will the other two have damaged him by then? Enough to get the most corrupt woman in the hemisphere into the White House? Enough to finish the destruction of our republic?
Libs, progs, Democrats—right now their project is to make sure non-citizens vote in this election. The League of Women Voters, formerly a respectable organization, has joined in this project with the NAACP, People for the American Way (what “American way” can they possibly be talking about?), Common Cause, Project Vote, and Chicanos for La Causa. I am afraid to ask what “La Causa” is.
Why do they want non-citizens voting? Because they presume these persons will vote overwhelmingly for Democrats. They’re probably right about that.
Is it worth it to them, to subvert and eventually destroy our electoral process, if that’s what it takes to get liberals into the White House? Judging by just their words and actions, the answer to that question is “Yeah, you bet, absolutely!”
Looking at the three leading Republican candidates:
I rule out Sen. Marco Rubio because I can’t trust him not to try to be the Angela Merkel of America. If there is anything America needs less now than amnesty for border-jumpers, I don’t know what that could be.
Ted Cruz a lot, although I was convinced that the Republican establishment
would never permit him to win the presidency: that they would actually
rather have a country-destroying crazy left-wing Democrat (I admit to
the tautology). But I didn’t like that “Voter Violation”
scam he pulled in Iowa, and his attacks on Donald Trump have become unseemly.
That leaves Trump, currently the front-runner. Would I vote for him if he were running against Clinton? I would turn cartwheels on my way to the polls. Do I believe Trump to be a genuine, dyed-in-the-wool, rock-solid conservative? No.
But then I know of no such conservative anywhere in Washington.
The Washington political establishment, our rulers, our masters of the universe, need a damned good thrashing. They need to be thrown out of power like a disorderly spewing drunk is thrown out of a bar. We need to be rid of them. We can’t afford them anymore. They cost us more than money; they’re always gnawing away at our liberties.
They do things that threaten to kill the United States of America. If they can’t spend us into oblivion fast enough, they’re willing to bring in countless multitudes of aliens—including all the criminals they can find—to swamp the electorate, holding their allegiance by never-ending offers of free stuff paid for by the working people of America. They don’t care what they do to our culture—the more transgender, the better. Every day they come after our freedom of speech, our religious liberty, our right to bear arms and defend ourselves.
Our leaders have made war against us. They behave toward us as if we were a conquered people who must be ground down into spiritless obedience. Look what they’ve done to our educational institutions.
Our leaders must be replaced. They are an existential threat to our liberties, to our republic. They are trying to turn it into something else—and not for our benefit, but for theirs.
Maybe Trump can shake them up. Maybe he can.
I can’t think of anyone else who might be able to do that.
