We’ve experienced this rodeo show for decades.
There is nothing new under the sun with what has transpired this cycle. For all the talk about how this election has been unprecedented, it has really played out the same way it always does. It’s just that this year, the particular RINO who won has been even more liberal and capricious for his entire life and is even more of a decadent character. And yet, within 24 hours of this man accusing his opponent’s father of being associated with Lee Harvey Oswald, the drones are already out in full force demanding that everyone throw their panties to the stage.
Even someone firmly grounded in conservative principles faces a one-sided inertia to move to the left the minute they win the primary. How do conservatives expect to secure a single commitment from the man who knows not what the word commitment means if they begin obsequiously working the stage for “Mr. Trump” without batting an eye lash?
It is not the responsibility of conservatives to unite behind this man; it is his responsibility to unite behind us and earn our vote and champion at least some of our issues in a sustained and sincere fashion.
We have come full circle in this cycle of insanity. This race began with conservatives enraged over Jeb Bush’s promise to win without conservatives. Trump effectively seized upon the unique candor of the establishment front-runner and galvanized many conservatives. Now we have a man who finds no need to reach out to conservatives, but conservatives are told they must submit their forces to him – IMMEDIATELY. Indeed, nothing has changed from every other primary election, which resulted in utter failure for our country and the resurgence of Democrats anyway.
In addition, it’s clear that Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn will remain as GOP leaders in the Senate while Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy will continue to steer the House GOP. Every single RINO governor and state legislature will remain intact. NOTHING has changed. Trump himself says he admires McConnell and Corker and lambasted Cruz for fighting with leadership. The notion that Trump’s success will change the trajectory, even if you believe in Trump’s newfound positions on some issues like immigration, is nothing short of a fantasy, given his willingness to work with the same toxic system that has just been reelected.
