Between the GOP, the TEA Party, the moderates, and the disaffected Democrats, no one knows where to turn for a leader to bring America out of the Obama Depression. Young liberals are being fooled, old conservatives are standing fast, and the rest of the nation is on edge as America teeters between falling to socialism to become another fallen empire, or restoring her to greatness.
Republicans are fractured between conservatism and moderates, while the Democrats remain united under liberalism. The problem for Democrats is that what moderates are left are fleeing to the GOP. Meanwhile, the moderate GOP leadership wants neither Donald Trump nor Ted Cruz to win because both would end the gravy train for both the GOP and their Democrat buddies.
Then there is the looming threat that, not only will either one of them disaffect Republicans who support the other, but that the GOP itself would nullify the choice of the people and put in one of their own choosing thereby alienating everyone. Both Rubio and Kasich maintain they can win their “winner-take-all delegates” home states on March 15, but both are trailing Trump badly and can only act as spoilers to try to keep Trump from attaining the 50%+1 delegates needed to lock the nomination. Should this happen, the GOP may commit political suicide by shunning the will of the people to install a Republicrat to compete with the Democrats.
Today’s political environment
America today is not the nation it was in 1980 when Reagan formed his coalition. Today the nation’s majority of voters are no longer the responsible adults who love America. In 1980 people voted against a second term of the disaster that was Jimmy Carter’s democratic socialism and the nation rose in prosperity for the next twenty years. But leftists continued to infect our education system to twist the past in the empty minds of America’s youth that the problem with America isn’t the greedy poor who want more benefits for less work, but the greedy rich who want bigger companies with less tax burdens by a corrupt government.
In 2008, a nation of ill-educated people accepted the Democrat storyline of why America’s economy was crashing – that government giving tax breaks to the rich meant government programs were not paid for – and voted for Jimmy Carter’s second term. Their nominee was an Indonesian bred, America hating Moslem named Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Sotero. To make matters worse, even after four years of Obama’s economic policies to make America weaker, they voted to continue it into a third term in 2012.
Now the light bulb is finally starting to go off, but there are still millions of young fools who would vote for Bernie Sanders to not only continue Obama’s downward spiral, but to take America all the way down into socialist hell. Sanders would inflict wartime taxes on a nation that doesn’t even recognize it is at war. Only the galactically stupid would think that government seizing America’s wealth would make the nation’s economy stronger.
Bernie’s agenda would not only cause the American economy to collapse, but make America too weak to stem the tide of the Jihad, let alone stop the renewed expansion of the violent ideology of socialist communism around the world. Rather he would increase the parasitic welfare state to make America a weak, failing economy controlled by the government.
Where we are headed
In 1980 after the primaries, conservative Reagan united with more moderate Bush senior despite the nastiness with which Bush conducted himself during the campaign against Reagan. Today we have Ted Cruz, who is the true blue conservative, and Trump, who has been the more fickle and is now being the nasty one in the campaign mudslinging at Cruz, but he is winning. This race has become a two man competition between the two candidates the GOP hates, but the people love.
To bring the party together the way Reagan did in 1980 would require Trump reaching out to the most popular second choice of America. Both have strengths and weaknesses that would be offset by allying with the other. The two of them together could crush the Democrats who only attract the most liberal voters.
Despite Trump’s past, he is now espousing conservative values;
- Defend the Constitution.
- Remove the Democrat boot from the throats of American businesses.
- Stop government cronyism.
- Stop wasting taxpayer money.
- Lower taxes.
- Allow Americans to go back to work.
- Stop illegal immigration.
- Stop Moslem immigration.
- Stop the renewed advance of communism.
- Stand with our allies and destroy the renewed Jihad.
The question here is, if Trump wins will he choose Cruz to unify the party the way McCain chose Palin, or will he go for a moderate in the establishment and alienate the Republican base once again? And if Cruz can actually win over Trump, who would he pick as his running mate to unify the party as he pulls in conservatives but alienates those who believe the propaganda about conservatism? Or, if there is no winner, who will the GOP establishment put on the ticket that would draw anyone who is not disgusted with the GOP and their Democrat-lite ideology?
When looked at from this perspective, Trump doesn’t seem like such a bad alternative. Yes, he has flip-flopped often, but he’s used to dealing with both sides depending on who is in power. That he has chosen the Republican side in this battle for America says more for him and what policies he would want when not having to cater to others in power.
Remember, Reagan started out as a Democrat, and even Romney, as devout a Christian as any, still came out to make a two-faced condemnation of Trump’s campaign. For the “Mushy Middle” that switches back and forth between Republicans and Democrats (because they are the most ignorant, not the enlightened as the liberal media likes to call them, because if they understood what is going on in politics they would never vote for democrat socialists or RINOs), Trump is the flavor of the month. But those of us who stand either with Republican capitalism or Democrat socialism know both his flaws as well as his virtues.
There is no perfect candidate, but who wants Democrats or their buddies the Republicrats to continue to rule? Can you imagine the return of Jeb or Mitt in a brokered convention? Republicans have already rejected those like them who claim they, and not Trump, can get the crossover votes may as well be running on the Democrat ticket.
[Author’s Note: One thing is certain, Trump did himself no favors in skipping CPAC and may have been signaling which way he will go. In any case, if Trump wins and stands against the establishment he’ll have my vote. If Ted wins and Trump goes against him then he’ll have my contempt. If the establishment wins I will go third party. If there is no third party then I will stay home because both parties will be running on the same policies.]
