Burn It Down

According to this CNBC story, some Republicans are insisting the party chooses the candidate.  They quote North Dakota delegate Curly Haugland:

"The rules haven't kept up," Haugland said. "The rules are still designed to have a political party choose its nominee at a convention. That's just the way it is. I can't help it. Don't hate me because I love the rules."

I confess that I went out yesterday and voted for Trump.  It was mainly to stick my thumb in the eye of Romney, Boehner, Ryan, the Bushes, and the rest of the Establishment.  I am fairly confident Trump will not, if elected, by a particularly good president.  Probably Cruz would be better, even Kasich, but neither of them nor any of the rest of the field will burn this system down.  

And that is what we need.  My country is being run by a corrupt, incestuous oligarchy.  The people who do not like Trump don't like me much either.  

The enemy of my enemy is my friend -- or at least my ally until the fires die down.


  1. Well, the government is going to collapse no matter who is elected -seems inevitable. Who will just influence when. Now, can Trump beat Hillary? "Everyone" says no. Me? Not so sure about that.

  2. Funny, John, I was going to add that a massive collapse is coming regardless. I could mostly care less. The so-smart set is due for an ugly lesson courtesy of the gods of the copybook headings.
