Today’s missive will be short.
When elections roll around Republicans always shoot themselves in the foot. This year they missed. They shot themselves in the head.
We have a candidate. An effort to unseat him at the convention places the bullet in the frontal lobe. If other Republicans (Romney or Kristol) successfully encourage a “third party” candidate, then the effort places the bullet in the brainstem. If the establishment (Ryan, McConnell, et. al.) damn with faint praise the bullet enters the parietal lobe. Right wing talk radio hosts who complain about everything simply move the bullet’s placement to the temporal lobe. Conservative pundits who decry a Trump candidacy (Krauthammer – such a disappointment as he was my guru – Sowell – my favorite brain trust) place the shot at the medullary-cervical junction.
At the Republican Party autopsy the report will be the same – death by self-inflicted wound!
I am not a radical. I am a conservative (but, apparently not a “true” conservative). I am not a conspiracy theorist. I am an American who thinks that Obama was the worst president in the history of the Republic. I am a capitalist and I want my country back! I will vote for Mr. Trump.
As time has focused my attention I believe it will be refreshing to have an autocrat like Mr. Trump as president (yes, I think he will be autocratic). Why, because he will be an autocrat that thinks like I do (rather than an autocrat like Obama – executive order, executive order, executive order, executive order ad infinitum – who thinks exactly the opposite of what I think). If there is a chance that he can “Make America great again” then I am all in.
Too bad that there is a bullet rattling around in the skull of the Republican Party. They have practically guaranteed that Hillary will be the first woman president.
