The whole idea, Donald my man, is to pay lip service to conservative policies but do nothing to implement them. Our political philosophy is never to leave the mahogany-walled panels of our think-tank libraries. Conservatism is theory only. So we must continue to elect do-nothings like Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, John McCain, Mitt Romney and Lindsay Graham.
Well after seven years of Obama and go-along RINO Republicans, a lot of people are fed up. Conservatives have elected Republicans to the House and Senate, and those Republicans do little or nothing to stop Obamacare, illegal immigration, deficit spending, radical appointees, and Obama's power over-reach via executive privilege.. A more feckless mob of collaborationists has rarely been seen. Even so, they are aghast that we, their voting base, would finally hold them accountable for their abject failure.
So Republican Party, you're fired. National Review? You've been on a P.C. downward slide for some time -- firing Ann Coulter and John Derbyshire for writing unpopular truths and things that needed to be said, about Islamic evil and black violence, respectively. Like many others, I stopped reading National Review Online some time ago. I prefer my political news and opinion straight, not watered down, not filtered through a P.C. lens to avoid offending people who desperately need to be offended -- with the truth.
So I'm voting for Trump. Yes, Trump is a gamble -- he may not be able to do what he has promised (building a wall to stop illegal Mexican immigration and halting Muslim immigration), but at least he has proposed to try. Anyone you vote for is a gamble -- we have seen how D.C. can change a candidate, how that candidate can do things we disagree with, once they have been elected. However, I am willing to take that gamble. I don't see that I have much to lose.
Donald Trump is the hard slap across the face that the Republican Party desperately needs. If our political party no longer represents our views, then it's time to replace it with something else.
