The other day I addressed the Never-Trumpers,
“For all of those Republicans, Conservatives, and Libertarians, refusing to vote for Donald Trump.
Get over yourself!
You are not smarter, and don’t possess ethics and morals greater than the very survival of our Republic.
This is about a corrupt leftist crime family taking over the reigns of power, and you guys are arguing and pontificating around the edges of irrelevancy.
Get your head out of your ass and get in the game.”
Provided how bad Hillary Clinton would have been for the country, the position of the Never-Trumpers was not only wrong but dangerous. Save me your self righteous moral compass. You made this about yourself and not the nation.
God himself used others who were less than righteous throughout the Bible to advance his cause. If that process is good enough for God, it should sure as heck be good enough for the rest of us. Sorry gang, you blew this one big time.
Clinton Machine, or as I like to call them The Clinton Crime Family:
The nation was saved from both short and long term destruction at the hands of one of the left’s most dangerous political tools. This defeat not only shows their weakness in the face of other forces on the left, such as the Obama and Bernie Sanders coalitions, but the level of corruption they brought to the game had reached seriously disturbing levels. The American people had to show them the door. The level of corruption on display from this group in just the last 7 to 8 years was shocking. It would have gotten worse. If having been provided the opportunity to build upon and advance the Obama legacy, America may have never recovered.
Political Polls and those who worship them:
As proven time and time again, most are wrong and were never designed to be right. Up until 7 days before an election the vast majority of Polls are designed to shape your opinion, not measure it. They are used by academia, the media, as well as Left and Right leaning think tanks to shape and develop narratives and themes. Although both sides use polls, the left has mastered their use as a primary tool for shaping public opinion. In the closing days their mission is to actually get close to the truth so as to provide proof of performance for the next batch of suckers dumb enough to pay them to be wrong 70% of the time.
The vast majority of political consultants know nothing and can predict less. Only Weathermen are wrong more than political consultants. They are poll driven (see above) data divers who have forgotten the art of political analysis.
Yes there are some good ones, yes some get it right, but based on my experience with these folks over many years, the majority of them year after year fail upward. You see them the next election cycle back at it after having just lost in a spectacular fashion in the previous election. Yes, I get it, you win some, you lose some, however, many lose some and then lose some more and keep getting hired. Their connection to making money at mailing is at times a downright scam. Many play both sides of the street with little or no philosophical allegiance or underpinnings.
Having become the Left Wing of the Left Wing, Democrats have become void of rational thought that once defined America as a nation. Their party has gone off in such whacked out directions that even 1960’s Hippies are freaked out. These guys are so left they’ve left the 60’s behind.
We as a party need to send our Political Hearing Aides to the shop to be repaired because many on our team are politically tone deaf. Our inability to take the temperature of the nation, coupled with our lack of political resolve in pushing back against a dangerous and aggressive foe, left the party susceptible to an outside takeover by a guy who made the simple observation, the people have had it. He swooped in and stole our lunch. He asked the girl to the prom while we fumbled around looking for the right words.
It is really pretty simple. I know some don’t like simple, to them there has to paragraph upon paragraph of political analysis. There has to be, how can such a major political shift be explained without it?
Obama has been in the Pilot House of the Titanic steering the ship towards an iceberg in the distance. The Republicans meanwhile spent all of their time rearranging the deck chairs, wringing their hands, as they encouraged the band to keep playing. Trump on the other hand measured the angst of the passengers, went up to the Pilot House pushed Obama and Clinton out of the way, and took the wheel.
