In 2012, Mitt Romney could not galvanize the Republican base and he lost. In 2016, Jeb Bush declared he could win without the Republican base and he lost before he got started. In 2008, John McCain fired up the Republican base by choosing a firebrand conservative who gave McCain such a lead that Democrats had to nuke the economy and blame Republicans in order to win. Neither would do what Trump has been doing – storming against the Democrat agenda. But what will he do to truly unite the party?
This time around, Democrats do not have the option of crashing the economy through their mortgage banks in order to derail Republicans like they did in 2008. Trump has been pulling in people from all demographic groups to his campaign, but Donald Trump has a problem which may derail himself. Unlike Reagan, who started out a Democrat and became the greatest conservative Republican since Teddy, Trump is coming to conservatism very late. He is so late that many question his sincerity in wanting to stop the socialist agenda that is crushing America’s economy and making our enemies abroad strong.
Some say that Kasich is staying in the race in order to be a spoiler and hope for a VP offer or instigate a brokered convention to screw Trump. The same is being said of Christie’s endorsement and campaigning for Trump that he wants to be VP or at least a cabinet post. But both are men who say they would be happy to work with Democrats, who supported Boehner as he betrayed Republican voters and conservatives want none of either in the top spot.
Working Americans do not want any Republican who will work with Democrats toward the Democrat agenda. They want a president and a party that will sweep away the socialist blight that and crony corruption that is plaguing this great nation. They want a president who will put America first, have our ally’s backs, and lay our enemies down on theirs.
Obama Democrats have unleashed hell on America by opening our borders and aiding the Muslim Brotherhood to set the Middle East on fire. Working with them is not an option; defeating and dismantling their government machine to steal American’s wealth and prevent Republicans from repairing the damage they have done is. As for Trump, Americans can only hope he is the man of his word his children and friends say he is because he is proving to be a formidable leader.
If he is not, if he chooses a Bush, or Christie, or Kasich moderate who wants to work with Democrats over a conservative like Cruz who wants to restore America, then we will know in what direction the country will go. But that’s no reason to give up. It didn’t take one candidate for liberals to tear America down. We didn’t lose this country overnight and cannot take it back in a day. But we can’t take America back if we don’t start moving forward and keep Democrats out of office. Two steps forward, one step back is better than one step forward and two steps back as we did in the last two elections.
The bottom line is that this year even many Democrats (likely taxpayers who are realizing they are chickens voting for Col. Sanders) are changing their vote. They have come to realize that Democrats are wrecking, not restoring the economy. Except for those ignorant youngsters who want freebies, along with those who are parasites of the government that promises to steal for them, they want the American Dream, not the American Nightmare of socialism.
Trump is winning these people over, but not bringing along with conservative base of Americanism unless he recruits the right man VP. On the flip side Democrats have nowhere else to go for more voters. Trump can either secure victory by keeping his word and demonstrating that he will enforce conservatism to roll back the tide of liberalism that has corrupted our land, or he can throw it in the air and pray he can outscore Democrats who are experts at voter fraud.
