Or, should I say that Conservatives can, and will be, losers if they continue on their anti-Trump ranting and raving?
As a fairly strong Conservative myself, I was thrilled when the Republicans had so many qualified candidates running for the Republican Presidential nomination. I liked them all, including Donald Trump. I liked that they all swore allegiance to whomever won the nomination. I liked their ideas on stopping illegal immigration and on lowering the National Debt and on abolishing the horrendous Obama-scare. The debates were dynamic battles of wit even when the moderators tried to pit one Republican against the other.
My personal favorite was Ted Cruz.
Well, Ted lost to Donald Trump. Did I go on tv to complain that Trump had won? No. Well, truly, no one asked my opinion; but, I wouldn’t have been the one to piously proclaim that the apparent Republican nominee was not my first choice. I do like Trump. I do like that he speaks his mind freely and isn’t afraid to call out Clinton on her criminal activities. I like that he smiles at people. I like that he is an optimist with a business background. Both his good nature and common sense should do much to reinvigorate our economy and even our American spirit which Obama and Hillary have desperately tried to suppress. I also believe that, being a businessman, Trump will use people who are the best at their chosen field, regardless of their personal characteristics.
So, what’s not to like?
Well, many Republicans seem to hold a grudge that Trump survived the debates and even thrived when the Lieberal media sought to bring him low. We have lost so much respect for politicians we actively supported previously and even donated to. Romney is the biggest disappointment of all. We donated to his campaign. We hosted a huge sign in our yard for him. We went out of our way to press our children and friends to vote for him. Now, he, too, has decided he knows more than the millions of Americans who chose Trump as our standard bearer. Paul Ryan insults Trump with faint praise and a knowing snicker when asked about what Trump does or says. Why can’t our House Speaker simply say that Trump is the presumptive nominee and has won fairly and squarely rather than provide future fodder for the Democrats? All those sound bites of Republicans refusing to support Trump are already making their way into Democrats’ ads!
And, now, we come to George Will, professional pundit and know-it-all of TV fame, a real sabelotodo! So, he knows more history than most Americans. He undoubtedly writes and speaks more clearly than most of us. No matter. Contrary to what the “experts” wanted, Americans, who work for a living, have responded enthusiastically to Trump’s down-to-earth opinions and respect and like Trump. These Americans have propelled Trump to the nomination. And, since Hillary Clinton will be the only other “choice”, Will had better get on board…..and soon. Or, his freedom to keep his large paycheck, his freedom to carry a gun, and his freedom to speak his mind freely might be at risk.
When the only alternative candidate is Hill the Pill, it is a losing proposition to not support the Republican nominee, Trump. Pretending that you are “better” or more “knowledgeable” than the average American voter is also a losing proposition. Romney, Ryan, Will, and all those other so-called Republicans are dooming this country with their childish demonstrations of arrogance. It’s as if they can’t understand the real choices this election presents with: the Supreme Court needing a new Justice; the Federal Debt at an all time high; the economy at an all-time low; the American spirit as low as is can be; people out of work and no options; the increase of violence; and the widening scope of radical islamic terrorism.
So, please, all you Republicans — especially Romney, Ryan and even poor Will — get on the band wagon or you will be lost in the dust of the Trump train. Yes, you will be losers. After all, even Republicans can be losers. Just don’t let our Republican nominee lose because you are too mean-spirited to honor your commitment to support the nominee of our party!
