Updated: The Great Orange Hope?

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires” 2 Timothy 4:3

Trump Flip OffBy now we know that bombastic businessman Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee for President as a Republican this election.

I am at a total loss as to how so many allowed themselves to be deluded by such a charlatan running what I can only call a “slash and trash” campaign, very reminiscent of the actions years past with Ron Paul supporters.

Interesting enough, now those same people that joined Trump in trashing any and every body not supportive of the poseur are now demanding we all get behind and support his bid, engaging in fear mongering of a Hillary Clinton win.

Sorry, but I have said all along that Trump was nothing more than a shill for Hillary, sort of a Ross Perot on steroids if you will.

Particularly curious to me now is that after the past seven years of complaints of no vetting for Barack Obama, no curiosity of his past stances or history, these same people either refuse to look at or just outright ignore Trumps record and history.

They ignore all evidence of his distancing himself from the Republican Party as early as 1999 when he was quoted in a New York Times article saying, “I really believe the Republicans are just too crazy right.”

But today, voters are to believe he is the true Republican running even further right than those he condemned back then?

His positions wander all over the board, not too long ago stating five different positions just on abortion alone!

Along with his trashing of Jeb Bush he claimed if elected, “you will find out who really knocked down the World Trade Center. It wasn’t the Iraqis.”

Never mind that no one ever said it was the Iraqis or that Saddam Hussein had any hand in it.

Little wonder the Bush Presidents, both of them have stated they will remain on the sidelines this election and not endorse anyone.

He has even expressed support for a single payer healthcare system, the actual goal of Liberal Democrats with Obamacare. But wants you to believe he will repeal Obamacare?

And replace it with what, the Liberal Democrats actual end goal for healthcare?

That wall along the Southern Border we have been hearing about now for decades and he promises will be built? Not so fast, he has waffled there admitting how he even used immigrants, benefiting from low wage undocumented immigrants.

His list of flip flops just keeps growing and growing with no end in sight.

Will he one day flip flop on his support of the second amendment? He quickly flipped on an Assault Weapons ban as he progressed. How can anybody be certain he won’t flip back if elected?

Now we are to believe that he is “the Great Orange Hope” to save America from Hillary Clinton, after his many years of praising her and courting both her and other Democrats?

And now, much as we saw with rabid, foaming at the mouth Paulbots in the past, devotees rely on fear mongering and actual threats to forcibly grow support for him?

I get that he said many things early on that conservatives have been saying and the Republican Party did not support in years past. But he never gave any solutions, just “trust me, I’ll fix it.”

He never explained just how he will gain any Congressional support for his plans, leading me to believe that he would rely on Executive orders, bypassing Congress.

I’m sure you recall Obama’s reliance on Executive orders that many complained about for years were violating the constitutional separation of powers.

I imagine that opposition would evaporate when their “Great Orange Hope” engaged in the practice.

He’s made a lot of noise on bringing jobs back to America, but somehow neglects to mention all of his profits made by outsourcing jobs to Bangladesh, China, Honduras and other low-wage countries for his line of apparel.

His devotees are now running around claiming if Hillary is elected president, the fault rests on the heads of those of us that have said we will not vote for Trump under circumstances.

They are wrong!

Any fault rests squarely on their own heads as for months we have tried to warn people of the close links between the Clinton’s and Trump. We have spoken of how he has portrayed the Republican Party in the vilest of light he could every time he spoke.

We have shown evidence of what I call draft dodging during the Vietnam War that I and many others without wealthy fathers were sent to, all ignored.

Although I never formally signed on, Ben Howe of #NeverTrump lays out my own views and feelings perfectly.

I can only add to his words, you Trump devotees wanted him, you got him. How you will get him elected is your problem, not mine.

You elected Hillary, not us.

As Paulbots of years past wanted with Ron Paul, get who they want nominated by hook or crook, just get him nominated, ignoring how many state no way ever would they vote for him. Trump devotees now carry the same disillusion that people will just blindly jump in behind their chosen poseur.

Y’all are about to be smacked square in the face with a huge dose of reality.

Oh people in America, what you have done!

  1. I don’t know what I’m going to do. Everything you point out is true about Trump. I thought all along that he was actually working, if not directly for Hillary, he was working on her behalf behind the curtains. The only possibility I can see is if he is elected, he would be easier to get rid of than Clinton would be. He will have no friends in Congress so it would be easy to impeach him – as he’s surely going to do something that is impeachable. You’d never get rid of Hillary – the Democrats would protect her no matter what. I think the thing that will make up my mind is who Trump selects as his VP. If he selects Christie for example, I’ll just write someone in rather than vote for Trump or Clinton.

  2. Well that is to be seen, but this is a direct of “vote the line and we will fix it crowd”. Nothing got done and the middle class is tired of the same old policies.

  3. So you prefer a dictatorship under Trump?

    If we are to follow the constitution, as so many have complained Obama isn’t doing, Trump will have to work with Congress, the same Congress he smears for not supporting him.

    And you’re right, things we wanted didn’t get done and people reacted. Or more, they jumped off the deep end and have thrown the baby out with the bath water.

    There is no lesser of to evils this go around now. There equally evil and the middle class is headed for the biggest screwing ever, regardless of which one wins.

  4. Different puppets of the same puppet masters. The greatest contribution of the two presumptive nominees is that they have exposed the extent that the cancer has grown in our national politics. I will not vote for another Clinton and Drumpf’s “you’re going to like it” campaign slogan just isn’t compelling enough for me.

    It remains to be seen what happens after the conventions, for now I agree on one thing with the Bushs neither will receive any form of support from me.

  5. Well Gee Lew Waters — you want compromise. With all the Democrat-like positions Trump holds, he seems to fit the bill. Sorta like the Rinos here in Clark County.

  6. Maybe a Democrat like Jim Webb.

  7. Highly doubtful. Webb is not liberal enough for Trump

    Maybe Bernie after Hillary finishes with him

    Whoever he thinks will discourage the most Republican votes

  8. I have a hard time believing that Trump’s real goal is, and always has been to help Hillary. Same with Perot in ’92. Seems a real stretch to me. Whoever Trump selects, it couldn’t be any worse than Palin in ’08.

    With a couple of exceptions, Brian Sonntag being one, I haven’t voted for a Democrat in over 30 years. Not since I got old enough to understand that Democrats are the party of socialism. And it’s only gotten worse. But….

    The Keynote Address at the 2004 Republican National Convention. It doesn’t get any better. By Democrat Zell Miller.

    As they say — not a dry eye at the Republican convention and not a dry seat wherever Democrats were sitting.

  9. I’d support and vote for a Bran Sonntag or Zell Miller in a heartbeat.

    I was born and raised into a Conservative Southern Democrat family, but walked away when they went so far left and Carter gave draft dodgers amnesty. I was still in the Army at the time and soon got out.

    One big difference I sense between them and Trump, they spoke their true nature where Trump just says what he thinks people want to hear.

    Their history shows their sincerity in their words.

    Trumps shows only insincerity if you research him.

  10. We know why you walked away from the Democratic Party. What would make you walk away from the Republican Party? If Trump isn’t it, what is?

  11. Trump would have been enough to make me walk away from the GOP if I hadn’t already.

    But I left the GOP in 2010 due to dirty underhanded politics against a very good conservative candidate and undermining his campaign in favor of Jaime Herrera.

    So I don’t necessarily want to hear any of their crap on unity after how the Clark GOP and a few others screwed over a good man.

    I might add too, many of those same people that worked to undermine him are also now complaining a lot about Herrera.

    Additionally, the acts committed against me back in 2014 by operatives from the Clark County GOP for exposing yet more dirty tricks cemented by walking away.

    These new Republicans seem to believe in scorched earth policies and don’t seem to realize in doing you, you also burn bridges.

  12. On further reflection to hell with it. I won’t vote for the Butcher of Benghazi or the Brawlin’ Boardwalk Bully. That guy’s giving me insomnia. I think I’ll write in Mike Rowe ..unless of course a viable 3rd party candidate shows up.

  13. I’m seeing comments of voting for Mickey Mouse, but take strong exception to that.

    Mickey Mouse has never shown much support for our second amendment rights while Elmer Fudd has.

    So I’ll be going with Elmer Fudd 😉
