A trait which has plagued the Conservative community for decades surfaced again when Ted Cruz ended his bid to be the Republican presidential nominee.
My candidate didn’t win so I’m not voting. Reminiscent of adolescent behavior- ‘you’re not doing it my way so I’m not playing anymore.’
Donald Trump was not my first choice to be the Republican nominee for president, nor was he my second choice. But Trump is the duly elected Republican nominee for president, so he is getting my vote.
Ted Cruz’s stated Conservative values closely aligned with my own; limited government, immigration, faith, family, and country just to name a few. Cruz, as many conservatives realize, our country is rapidly sinking into a debt ridden, morally bankrupt society, far from what our founders intended. And that moral decay is accelerating.
But I’m a realist- Ted Cruz was not going to beat Hillary Clinton. That may hurt your feelings, but it doesn’t change the fact. All one needs to do is look at the voter turnout. Millions turned out to vote for Trump, tens of thousands turned out for Trump rallies, the same cannot be said for Cruz.
Just because your candidate didn’t win, doesn’t make Trump the enemy. The enemy is Liberalism embodied in Barrack Obama and now Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton’s defeat should be the objective of every Republican, every Conservative.
Is Trump a Conservative? Not by the standards most Conservatives identify, but Trump is our only chance to defeat Hillary. Our only chance to reign in an out of control government.
Proof of the cry-baby conservatives is evident everywhere. The Never-Trump movement and various other Super Pac’s created to defeat Donald Trump. All of which give Hillary a better chance of victory.
A spokesman for the Never-Trump movement stated “we are not going to vote for or support Trump, but will focus on Congressional races to build a firewall to stop Hillary.”
This is a loser’s position. Let’s review how will this strategy has worked out thus far: while Obama and the Democrats first step in ‘transforming America’ was Obamacare. Not one single Republican voted for it. It was against their ‘principles.’ So what, they did absolutely nothing to stop it.
Their excuse – “we don’t have any control in Congress – decrying if you give us control of the House of Representatives we can stop Obama and his Liberal agenda.”
In 2010 that happened. The Tea Party was born. Record numbers of Republicans turned out to vote. Now the Republicans controlled the House.
What happened? Nothing. Same result. They didn’t do a damn thing to stop Obama. The house controls the purse of the government- they could have defunded Obamacare – but didn’t. They were concerned about how the voters would ‘feel’ about their actions- forgetting the fact that is exactly what they were elected to do!
John Boehner and the rest of the gutless GOP representatives then said they couldn’t do anything, ‘but if they had control of the Senate then they could stop Obama.’
In 2012 that happened. Now the GOP held the majority in Both Houses of Congress. The question is what have they done to stop Obama? Not a damn thing. Obama continues to destroy America and the GOP has passed a budget to enable him to continue his mission.
You see the vanity of the strategy from the Never-Trump camp? Focusing on local and congressional races, the so called firewall construction, is a plan embraced by losers, and is the definition of insanity.
Hillary and Liberalism are the enemy.
Another stance among cry-baby Conservatives is not sacrificing their principles and vote for Trump. I get that, but consider this; conservatism is not a party it’s an ideology, and I intend to vote for the candidate who gives conservatives the best chance to preserve those principles, and it’s not Hillary Clinton. This is a two party race Republican and Democrat. No matter who I vote for or don’t vote for, I’m still a Conservative.
I’m still for limited government, I still believe we are a nation of laws, and those laws should be rigidly enforced, without exemption. Any appointed or elected official who fails to uphold and enforce those laws should be removed from office.
No matter who is elected, I will still be a conservative, and I will live my life accordingly. But to stop the Liberal agenda I will vote, and I will vote for Trump and against Hillary.
Let’s look back at history and see the result of non-voting conservative crybabies:
When Barry Goldwater ran against Lyndon Johnson, conservatives decided Goldwater wasn’t conservative enough and stayed home, when in reality Goldwater was every bit as conservative as Ted Cruz. Johnson was easily elected, extended the war in Vietnam, costing 58,000 American lives, and wounded times 4, all so Johnson could build helicopters in Texas.
LBJ passed the largest single welfare plan in our history “The Great Society,” which has grown in size and cost over the last 50 years. And every politician who followed dared not be the bad guy and cut welfare, fearing voters would think he didn’t care about the poor.
LBJ allowed lawlessness to accelerate at home, there were riots in the streets, on college campuses, and the law went unenforced. Conditions created under LBJ were so bad he refused to seek re-election, realizing he couldn’t stop the destruction he had set in motion.
But LBJ and the Liberal party created a winning strategy which the GOP even today is too stupid to recognize. LBJ said when passing the great society legislation, “I will have those niggers voting democratic for the next 50 years.” And he was right. But prophetically, he wasn’t just talking about blacks, he was talking about every future welfare recipient.
Give them a check and we will keep their vote.
Fast forward to 2008. While Hillary was being trounced by a young black candidate Obama, what did the wise Republicans do, they nominated John McCain, a moderate do nothing whose talk was louder than his game.
Let’s face it if John McCain had not been a Vietnam POW he wouldn’t have even been a Senator. I don’t have anything personally against John McCain, but he is not even close to being a conservative.
Because republicans failed to account for demographics and conditions on the street, the race between Obama and McCain was a forgone conclusion.
Where were all those republican voters? Where were all of those conservative cry-babies? They were at home, and for the next 4 years would bitch about government while satisfying their own narcissism by claiming, ‘it’s not my fault, I didn’t vote for him.’ But it is your fault, you didn’t vote.
Continuing the failing ways of the republicans in 2012, with the White House ripe for the taking because of the disaster Obama created home and abroad, who did the party nominate? A milk-toast nice guy in Mitt Romney, who wouldn’t even fight back during the presidential debates even when Obama was lying and everyone knew it.
But Conservatives don’t fight for what’s right- they pout. When liberals punch you in the face, you punch back. Which is exactly what Trump does and Conservatives won’t do.
Trump is doing what Republicans have been afraid to do Since Regan – taking on the Liberal agenda. Warning of the dangers of big government.
The Liberal party doesn’t compromise. They might imply they do, but they don’t. They attack, and attack until they get their way, yet the Republicans are known as the Party of ‘no.’ Conservative cry-babies don’t fight, they cower, as if it’s some kind of noble action. Meanwhile Liberalism advances.
As a result of the missed opportunity in 2012 we have the most liberal Supreme Court ever, a gutless republican controlled congress, a train wreck of an economy, a foreign policy disaster of epic proportions and 20 trillion in debt. All taking place while conservative crybabies sit at home and bitch, thinking somehow if they focus on local and congressional elections things will get better.
How many times do you have to lose before you realize you are doing it wrong? The so-called conservatives who were elected in 2010 and 2012 have not accomplished one thing they were elected to do. Boy those ‘principles’ really paid off didn’t they? Or did you forget mr conservative John Boehner resigned a complete failure?
Never-Trumpers are de-facto Hillary supporters, so while you sit at home and refuse to vote for trump because of your ‘principles,’ you are supporting Hillary Clinton.
There won’t be a next time folks. If Hillary is elected, this is some of what will happen:
- The Democrats will control the white house for the next 12 years
- The Supreme Court will become solidly liberal, which means your conservative principles will be all but destroyed in any court of the land.
- The Republicans will lose control of one of the Congressional houses
- The National debt will continue to escalate.
- Government will grow so large, with so much of the population relying on them for support, the populace will have no choice except to continue to vote for anyone who promises not to cut their benefits.
Meaning your grandchildren will be slaves to the government.
All you conservative crybabies better vote for Trump. He is the only chance we have to stop this disaster. If you fail to vote for Trump, because he’s not your choice as the Republican nominee you are in fact voting for Hillary.
When you grandchildren are slaves to the government, be sure and tell them how your principles made it all possible.
