I am going to vote for Donald Trump in November.
No, Donald Trump would not be my first choice if there were a choice. But the GOP has failed to nominate anyone who could possibly be my first choice, and that’s only the last item on the long list of the GOP’s abysmal failures. They tried to push another Bush down our throats — the lamest one in that not overwhelmingly talented family! What reason is there to assume, to hope that Ted Cruz would make a better president than George W. Bush? I don’t see any. Nor do I believe he could possibly win in November. To me, it looks like the GOP has no one who could possibly represent me and my interests; not that it matters to GOP.
Obviously, Trump is not a Republican, or a conservative; he has despicable manners, unable to speak coherently off the cuff; he is an obnoxious, spoiled, filthy rich redneck opportunist whose only guiding principle is “buy low, sell high”. All true. Which is awfully bad, but still a billion times better than what we have enjoyed since January 21, 2008. Trump is no Reagan or Lincoln but if he wins in November, the GOP will get a chance to reevaluate its mistakes, regroup and once again become a party of Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan. The Trump presidency would give the GOP a chance to once again lead the country.
Assuming that Paul Ryan spoke for his party when he said that he was not ready to support Trump, the GOP has different plans. It is determined to circle its wagons and oppose the loudmouthed outsider, even if it means throwing the elections. Why not? They threw elections in 1996 when they nominated Bod Dole and in 2008 when they nominated John McCain.
Therefore, I am hereby putting the Republican Party on notice. The Republican voters have spoken and displayed an overwhelming preference for Donald Trump over everything the GOP could offer to us. I will only vote for a Republican candidate is his last name is spelled T-R-U-M-P. If the GOP establishment decides to disregard our will, I see no reason to vote Republican — now or in the future.
And to all the sensitive conservative souls out there who are so offended with Trump’s obvious shortcomings that they, along with the GOP establishment, are ready to let Hillary Clinton reign, I can only tell one thing: Please get over yourselves and do the right thing. Hillary is a very powerful woman: she would be perfectly capable of driving a perfectly healthy country into an early grave. What do you think she will do if she replaces Obama in the Oval Office?
