This morning I caught 3-minutes of Jonah Goldberg… who I admire greatly… talking about 8-years of Obama being responsible for Trump as the Republican Candidate for President.
True… to a degree.
However… The Republican Party, in my assessment, holds the largest responsibility for Donald Trump being the Presidential Candidate on the Republican ticket.
It’s not the Democrat Party that floods the field with candidates in order to assure their desired name gets the nod. In other words, just like they did to us with McCain, the Establishment Republicans who control the party apparatus promoted presidential contenders that had no business running so they could dilute the vote enough for JEB! to get the nod.
It backfired on them this time.
Frankly I’m glad it did. I’m tired of watching the Liberal RINO’s front load the primaries on the east coast and keep liberal states’ primary process ‘open’ so the cross-over socialist vote can assist them in getting the candidate of their choice.
So yes, Jonah, the destruction of the Greatest Experiment in Self Government the World has ever known under Obama, and 100-years of his ilk, certainly bares some of the responsibility for a Trump Candidacy.
But so do 80% of the Republicans in office.
A loss to Hillary will not change the fact that Establishment Republicans did this. It will not exonerate them from guilt. It will not confirm that they were ‘right’ as it was they who set the stage for it to happen. They hold no moral high ground here. They are the problem every bit as much as the Social Democrats.
The American Public, even while being kept unaware and compliant, are waking up to the realty that Republicans and Democrats are a distinction without a difference. And both have their foot on the pedal heading towards Progressive Globalization. (Read: International Socialism)
Whether Trump wins or loses, the Republican Party must be reformed…
