Dear Fellow Republicans,
Sit on a chair or cross-legged on the floor, make sure that your spine is upright with head up. Take a deep breath in through your mouth and let it out slowly through your nose! Chant, “Om.”
For the love of the Maker, let’s all calm down. Do members of the Republican Party no longer believe in the vote? We are barely to the middle of the Primary process. There is a long way to go!
It has finally dawned on me what it is we are seeing happen in this election cycle. From where did all this anger arise? Why do I despise the way Obama runs our government? Why do I think Harry Reid is evil incarnate? Why would I rather cut off my right arm than see another Clinton in the White House?
The Democrat Party has fanned the flames of class warfare and divisions between races and religions for so long that the chickens finally have come home to roost! This is the great danger of employing class warfare as a means of achieving political ends! Let’s be smarter than them and let the Democrats wallow in class hatred while we Republicans reap the benefits of their misguided efforts to set Americans at each others throats.
How else could a socialist like Bernie Sanders be garnering more campaign donations than Hillary Clinton? Why else would members of the Grand Old Party, the Party of Lincoln and Reagan, be at each others throats?
The Republican Party will emerge stronger from this debate, not weaker. Look where we are. Lest you forget, we started this race with 16 candidates. No. That is a wrong statement. We started this race with 16 very strong candidates:
If we find ourselves now selecting between Cruz and Trump, IT IS BECAUSE WE ARE FOLLOWING THE DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLE OF VOTING!
This year’s GOP primary was the largest field of candidates the Party has seen compete for the nomination in 100 years. The last time there were more candidates was 1916, when there were 17 GOP contenders who received at least one delegate in the first round of balloting at the national convention (and that was the era of “favorite sons”).
Personally, I would have preferred Walker or Perry or Kasich, but by the time I get a chance to vote, they will already be long gone. So be it. I will vote for one of the remaining candidates.
And I will vote for that winning candidate in the general election. I will exhort my fellow Republicans to go to the polls in record numbers – not stay way “because our little, itty bitty feelings are hurt!” (Oh, no! There are “RINOs” and “establishment” Republicans in our Party. I can’t sleep at night! Come on people! Show a little backbone!)
Hillary Clinton, without question, will be a disaster for this country. Perhaps Donald Trump or Ted Cruz will also be a disaster – but the Clinton disaster is assured. The Trump/Cruz disaster is only a possibility!
And, by the by, if we could survive 8 years of Barack Obama, we can survive 8 years of Donald Trump.
(Oh, Boy! I am certain this post will reward me with a ton of vindictive emails and comments. So be it. I needed to say it.)
