U.S. NEWS ELECTION 2016 All Aboard the Trump Train

All Aboard the Trump Train

Our next President will be either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. This choice should be as easy one for every Republican. Unfortunately, some are vowing to help elect Clinton, a morally corrupt, scandal ridden, incompetent liberal who would do tremendous harm to the nation. This is an unacceptable outcome, one that might very well destroy what is left of our once great nation.
Undoubtedly, there is lingering resentment over the type of campaign that Trump conducted and the fact that he is not a true conservative on all issues. News flash to these Trump critics, Hillary Clinton is not a true conservative on any issue.
In fact, conservatives should be celebrating that a candidate with a good number of conservative positions is on track to win the Republican nomination. It is the best result for conservatives since the 1980’s. Ever since Ronald Reagan left office, conservatives have been on the losing end of the GOP presidential nomination battles.
In recent decades, the winning candidates, George H. W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush, John McCain and Mitt Romney, have been moderates with scant conservative credentials. In each nomination contest, the supporters of the losing conservative candidates were told to “hold your nose and vote for the nominee.”
Most conservatives followed that advice and supported these nominees, who in many cases held similar views to the Democrats. The results were clear; the moderates were poor candidates because, in five of the last six elections, those nominees lost the popular vote.
In this election, the tables have turned as all of the establishment and moderate candidates lost, while maverick conservative Donald Trump easily prevailed. He won hundreds more delegates, millions more votes and almost three times as many states as his nearest competitor. Despite his popularity with the grassroots, as a populist conservative, Trump is anathema to the Republican Party establishment.
Not surprisingly, many in the GOP elite are not “holding their nose” and supporting Trump. They are refusing to return the favor to conservatives and support the presumptive nominee. This week, it was announced that McCain, Bush Sr., Bush Jr. and Romney will skip the Republican convention in Cleveland. Both Bush Presidents had the good manners to refrain from criticizing Trump; however, Romney pilloried Trump in a 20-minute hate filled speech in March. He then proceeded to appear on multiple talk shows trashing the front runner, so it is no surprise that the three-time loser Romney is refusing to support the first-time winner, Donald Trump.
On Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan refused to commit to supporting Trump, even though he will be presiding over the convention. Ryan said he was “just not ready” to endorse the prospective nominee. This unusual declaration was blasted by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich who said that Ryan had an obligation to unify the party.
It seems that many establishment Republicans and conservative Cruz supporters, as well as scores of analysts, commentators, talk show hosts, politicians and columnists are exploring options such as not voting or supporting Hillary Clinton for President.
This week, former Bush adviser Mary Matalin announced she was leaving the Republican Party for the Libertarian Party, but at least she did say she was open to voting for Trump.  Other angry Republicans have ruled out supporting Trump and are circulating an idea to form a third party. Blogger Eric Ericson and Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse among others are actively considering a new conservative party to be formed. Clearly, such a party would have no chance of victory and would only help Hillary Clinton become the next President.
Such conservative purists are obviously fine with Hillary appointing Supreme Court nominees, adding levels of bureaucracy, raising taxes, decimating our military, continuing Obamacare and expanding already unsustainable levels of illegal immigration.
While Trump may have changed his mind on abortion and other issues, he is on the right side on the major issues of the day, such as immigration, trade, taxes, energy, 2nd amendment rights, rebuilding our military, defeating ISIS, judicial appointments, and many more.
The stakes in this election are extremely high. Voters will decide whether the country continues the Obama agenda or changes course. Hillary would offer an expansion of Obama policies, while Trump would lead American toward a major course correction. 
Trump is not perfect, but neither was Reagan. At the very least, his victory does represent a major defeat for the GOP establishment and every time they lose, it is a cause for celebration. Even better, a President Trump will have an opportunity to save our country from ruin and restore the once great promise of America.

  1. NO MORE voting for evil (“the lesser of 2 evils” is still evil). Trump is publicly in favor of “transgender” bathroom “rights,” and has said he will move LGBT “rights forward,” while also supporting Planned Parenthood “for all the good that they do.” Trump is NO Reagan, and he is not a biblical worldview conservative. I will vote knowing that Hillary WILL WIN no matter what, cuz it is all rigged by Bilderberg, by the electoral college elitists, and those “voting machines.” I will vote for a write-in born again Christian leader, most likely Cruz or the Constitution Party candidate, cuz it simply does not matter. Hillary is already President thanks to the elite who run this country.
