The contest for the Republican presidential nomination continues to be dominated by Donald Trump. Pundits predict the end is near should Trump win. The media direly predicts that the Republican Party is coming unraveled at the seams and imploding, yet at the same time confesses dismay that Trump has not been stopped. If it were not all so fraught with drama, it would be laughable.
The media types claim befuddlement when it comes to the anger of Americans, but it really isn't hard to understand. Let me count the ways:
We are angry that the “will of the people” has not been carried out despite decisive victories in the past two election cycles. We are angry that President Barack Obama continues his brazen lawlessness. We are angry that Hillary Clinton claims responsibility for Benghazi as well as mishandling classified materials yet bears no real consequences for her actions and has the audacity to run for president. We are angry that our borders are not secure and that our country is being overrun by illegals and political refugees who demand to have their cultures supplant those of the USA. We are angry that the Constitution has been so abused and the attacks continue. We are angry that governmental agencies such as the EPA and the IRS are out of control and used as political weapons. We are angry that our national debt has doubled in eight years under Obama while our Gross Domestic Product growth has flagged and our economy has stagnated.
Of course the media does not get it—they don’t want to get it. If they did, they would have to connect the dots between the anger of the people and the success of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. At the same time, never forget they are supported by big advertising dollars and their job is to stir controversy around any potential Republican candidate with a conservative message. The vast majority of the American media has a socialist narrative, an agenda, and marching orders—do not doubt it.
Then there is the entrenched RINO faction of the party that has sold its heart and soul to corporate America. The idea that Donald Trump or Ted Cruz may secure the Republican presidential nomination is entirely distasteful to them, for they know things will change in Washington—i.e., no more business as usual. Thus, elements of the Republican Party are working just as hard as the Democrats to see that neither Trump nor Cruz will survive and, in that sense, the two parties have all but become one.
Mitt Romney—the hapless nominee who ran a feckless campaign against Obama in 2008—recently took to the podium to ridicule Donald Trump. Why should we listen to him now? His failed effort gave us four more years of Obama, and now he is the water-boy for those out to destroy Trump. This is the RINOs at work, attempting to steer the party away from Trump or Cruz and toward Marco Rubio—the Gang-of-Eight sellout. Their initial choice, Jeb Bush, bolted from the race after realizing that he could barely draw enough of a crowd for a coffee klatch. Now Rubio has been crowned by the RINOs as the fair-haired one destined to sell his influence and betray his constituency as he’s done in the past—just ask the Florida voters, who found that out the hard way.
Conservative American voters are not stupid. They see what is going on here. Trump is being painted as an “outsider” who is deceiving the voters, while Cruz is being described as “nasty,” and unable to work with the Senate and Congress. Those who lead these charges have already sold their souls and given up on conservative principles. “Watch out for Trump or Cruz—they are dangerous!” they say. Oh, they are dangerous all right, but not to the conservatives or the voters who want the best for this country. They are dangerous to establishment Washington and the status quo and the power players.
There is no danger in adhering to conservative principles. There is no inherent danger in wanting to protect our people, our flag, our constitution, our rights and liberty. There is no danger in wanting to make sure that our nation is safe and secure from those who wish us harm. There is no danger in wanting to uphold our word to our staunch allies and in keeping our military strong. There is no danger in expecting Americans to be productive or expecting a government to live within its means rather than tax and spend its citizens into poverty. There is no danger in a man or woman who asks for your vote based on principle rather than offering to buy it with freebies at the expense of other Americans. But there is danger in supporting candidates who embrace the opposite, no matter what the Left, the American Media, or the RINO establishment says to the contrary.
America is angry. Those who discount that anger will feel the brunt of it as the chilly winds of November 8, 2016 approach.
