Remember how, in –oh — 2008 and 2012, the Republicans nominated guys for president that were not all that exciting to conservatives? GOPe types lectured us repeatedly about the importance of sucking it up and standing with the party. Never mind that McCain spent most of 2008 sneering at us and our platform. ObamaCare was a huge issue to beat Obama over the head with in 2012. What did the GOP do? They force-fed us the guy who inspired ObamaCare.
I, for one, did my duty and voted for each of those GOP nominees. I wasn’t excited to do it. But I was sure — hoping — that they might be better than Obama.
Now, in 2016, the GOP has a nominee that makes the GOPe uncomfortable. Are they practicing what they preached in 2008 and 2012. (Oh, HELL NO. )
We’ve got the drivebys touting a list of Republicans voting for Hillary Clinton like it’s a winning Lotto ticket. (Funny. Most all of those names would draw puzzled, blank stares from anyone less of a political animal than I am or some of you are.)
Meg Whitman was the Republican nominee for governor of California the last time around. The GOP rallied around her. Of course, she got clobbered in leftist hellhole California. (AND it didn’t help that she didn’t do a lot to differentiate herself from Jerry Brown.)
This year, she’s endorsing AND aiding Hillary Clinton in her bid for the presidency.
Susan Collins is arguably the most liberal Republican in the US Senate. The GOP has regularly aided her at election time — with votes AND money. This year? She’s announced she’s voting for Hillary Clinton.
Wouldn’t it be nice if some of these people were as aggressive and cut-throat against Democrats as they are against members of their own party?
Stuff like this screams for a conservative alternative to the GOP. Despite the electoral successes of good conservatives like Jesse Helms and Ronald Reagan, the GOPe is feverishly scrubbing every last vestige of that winning conservative formula from the party.
Everything Hillary Clinton has gotten has been as a result of being the wife of (1) the attorney general of Arkansas, (2) the governor of Arkansas, (3) the president of the United States, and (4) the former president of the United States. From Whitewater, to the Tyson cattle futures scandal, to the sordid details surrounding the Clinton Foundation, and the private email server scandal, it’s clear that she and her husband have spent a lifetime trading the influence from their public positions for a whole lot of cash in their pockets. For God’s sake, they ripped off a bunch of sick and injured Haitian children!
With her email server, Madame Clinton put our national security at risk and arguably endangered lives. As secretary of state, she pushed policies in The Middle East — at the behest of her crony Sidney Blumenthal — that led to even more terrorism and turmoil and the rise of ISIS.
This woman is a walking disaster. And she and her followers have the gall to describe a man who built a multi-billion dollar real estate empire, created thousands upon thousands of jobs and all kinds of economic growth UNQUALIFIED.
The Establishment — leftist zombies + GOPe types scared of losing their influence in DC to the new Trump crew — is acting out of fear. Bill and Hillary Clinton attended Donald Trump’s wedding. Now, they paint him as a white supremacist. All of these driveby media and Hollywood types who used to fall all over themselves to cozy up to Trump are now ripping him and his family new ones.
Despite the low-life professional politicos infesting both parties, this country is STILL worth saving. Standing with Trump & Pence, and slamming the door once and for all on the Clinton criminal conspiracy is a great way to move forward on that worthy objective. Forget the R.
It’s all about the A.
