How Soon They Forget

Some "conservative leaders" are talking about a third party now that Trump is the presumptive nominee.

I guarantee you that if Jeb had been the nominee or even Cruz (I was more of a Walker guy myself because I despise public sector unions in particular) those of us considered the "base" would have been told to get in line for the Most Important Election Ever.  Clinton must be defeated!

The GOP wing of the uniparty could shove a moderate George H.W. Bush, Bob "his turn" Dole, George W. Bush, John "his turn"McCain, and Mitt the Mormon down our throats, and we were supposed to swallow and say, "Please, sir, can I have some more?"  A nominal Democrat friend wondered the other day if Trump is part of a clever Democrat plot to destroy the Republican Party.  My first thought is, No.  He is the result of a Republican plot to destroy the Republican Party.

I might actually vote for Trump in the general because he will be better on the Second Amendment than Clinton or any other Democrat.  Probably not.  Nevertheless, it would make as much sense as voting for any of the last four losers.


  1. Yes, you have had a poor run with Presidents (and candidates) lately. It's a pity Government is so intrusive, otherwise we could just ignore them completely and get on with life.

  2. I dunno, I'm warming up to the idea of voting for Trump. Because he is an "outsider" (well, an outsider with all sorts of insider friends) and would be less horrible than Hillary.

    My wife, on the other hand, is a neverTrump. She would rather send a protest vote.

    We'll see what happens in the coming months. I might flipflop agin'.

    Third Party? Naw, ain't gonna happen.

  3. (pre-reincarnated Me, 80 years ago.) That Hitler fellow, yes he does seem a bit extreme, playing it up for the crowds and all, but he has an interesting plan for connecting the cities with high speed roads.

  4. Nothing wrong with voting for Trump. I suspect he will be no worse than any of your most recent Presidents and probably, if even by accident, somewhat better.

    At least he appears to have America's national interests at heart, as opposed to the internationalist that's presently holding the office, and Hillary who won't know what she thinks until the latest focus group results are in.

  5. This is one of the reasons some Americans like Putin -- not so much that they think he is a good guy. He is obviously and unapologetically pro-Russian (and pro-Putin). It would be nice to have a pro-American president.
