I don’t mind telling you that I have over the past several elections voted Republican. It’s not that I’m a died in the wool GOP fanatic. It’s that they align themselves closer to what I believe our country should be doing than the Democrats. If a Democrat came along that better aligned him or herself with the way I feel, I would have no problem voting for them. But it’s with that in mind that I have a word of advice for the Republican “establishment”: I backed your guy when I didn’t think he was worth a pile of dog crap. Why wouldn’t you back someone like a Donald Trump or a Ted Cruz if they actually win the nomination?
I can understand if David Duke were running and you didn’t want to back him…but even if he WERE, and he managed to win the nomination, that is who your party nominated. If you’re a TRUE Republican, you vote for whomever your party nominates. It may not always be the best candidate, but that’s who you pull the lever for. Can I tell you how many times I had to hold my nose when I pulled the lever for people like Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney? You weren’t bitching then…so why would you be bitching now if a Donald Trump happens to win the nomination?
This is something that really bothers me regarding the GOP. It’s long been known that the Democrats don’t think We The People are smart enough to run our own lives…we need them in Washington or in the state capital, wherever that is, to decide what’s best for us. Yes, they want a nanny state for the country, and they don’t trust us to make the simple decisions. That’s the main reason why they feel that if they give you enough free stuff (like entitlement programs); you’re going to vote for them. I mean, who wants to have their free stuff taken away? The GOP has never been like that. They’ve been the people that believe in building the country through hard work and taking risks. They’ve rewarded those that have put themselves out there, and haven’t caved to giving in to the welfare moms of the world that don’t want to do anything but sit on the couch and watch Oprah. Until now.
All of a sudden, the GOP is telling us that they know better. And if it sounds like I’m becoming a Trump supporter, I’m not. It’s just that with every passing day, it becomes more and more clear that the guy is probably going to be the nominee, regardless what Ted Cruz, or John Kasich, or Marco Rubio or Reince Priebus thinks. If Donald Trump is the guy that most voters believe is going to be able to turn the country around and lead us to the Promised Land, then so be it! If it’s not him, but it’s someone else, that’s fine too. But understand “establishment” folks…I voted for your guy when I felt he was a second rate candidate. Now it’s your turn to hold your nose and vote for whomever We The People decide is best…be it the best candidate or another second rater. It’s that simple.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
