WANTED: Faux Liberal To Challenge Hillary in 2020

Standard

     The likelihood increases everyday that Hillary Clinton will defeat Donald Trump in November. Yes, the polls are never to be trusted, but the one thing you can rely on more than death and taxes is that Trump will continue to sabotage his own campaign. Even some Trump supporters are finally opening their eyes and realizing Trump was a Trojan Horse that infiltrated the Republican Party with a mission to take it down.
     I know it is not a conservative notion, but it is time to start thinking about payback! If the GOP does not recover, and I believe it will not, then conservatism’s only hope is to do to the democrats what Trump did to the republicans. We need a brave soul who has a confused and mixed philosophical history that can start being Bernie Sanders 2.0. The Democratic Party needs to be fractured into many quarreling parts. If this saboteur gets a foot in the door, then he or she can import a wild assortment of socialist and right-wing ideas. A celebrity–an actor–would be perfect for this role.
     Success of this covert operation hinges on whether the democrats are as gullible and narrow-visioned as republicans turned out to be. If they are then both major parties will have sustained heavy damage perhaps paving way for Third Party inroads into presidential and congressional campaigns. One of these parties, just maybe, could see the value in the United States Constitution and could help restore compliance with it and our laws, and bring sanity back to our capital. 

Republicans: Don’t Do It!

Standard

Former Secretary of State, the late Lawrence Eagleburger, warned that the nation was about to elect a charlatan in presidential candidate Barack Obama, one that would severely harm the country. I believe his prediction came true when democrats made Obama their nominee and then Americans made him president. Now it is the republicans turn. Donald Trump is not the candidate that many of his supporters believe that he is. He is using trickery, deceit, and populism to gain access to the most powerful office on Earth, where I believe he would wreak havoc on peace, freedom, and prosperity.

Trump is no conservative, and even exhibits few “moderate” leanings. He is a liberal. He is not a friend of veterans in spite of what he now claims, certainly no friend of former POWs, who had the audacity to have been captured by the enemy. (Remember that conversation?)

The Donald is a friend of universal health care, the Clintons, eminent domain, spending other people’s money, fiscal irresponsibility (he became a billionaire in part because of bankruptcies and stiffing loaners, consumers, and taxpayers), using the most vulgar and insulting kind of negative campaigning, stimulus packages and bank bailouts, and many other non-conservative and non-centrist issues. He supported late-term abortions, seems to oppose Israel in favor of the Palestinians, and has demonstrated a disturbing lack of knowledge on critical national security issues. (e.g. Marco Rubio had to school him on what the nuclear triad was and its importance.)

Republicans: Don’t do it. Don’t make the same mistake the democrats made with Obama. Don’t put another charlatan in the Oval Office. Look at everything Trump has said and done in the past few decades, and contrast that with what he has said while campaigning. Look closely at his behavior and actions. Think about it. What if he is, indeed, a fraud?

The Donald: Only love man, only love!
