We must do everything we can to ensure that Donald Trump does not get the nomination.
My Fellow Republicans, ~~
This presidential election thus far has been a roller coaster. Regardless of who you have supported, this season has had its ups and downs. I have for the most part kept my opinion to myself and watched with mouth ajar, knowing I am witnessing an election of an unprecedented nature. The democrat side of things is firmly fixed in place. Senator Sanders cannot get the nomination. Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee. What remains to be seen is who will represent the Grand Old Party 2016.
Firstly, let it be understood that whoever the nominee is, it is likely the person will not be the first choice of most republicans. No person is the perfect candidate and no group of people will ever agree perfectly on who should represent them.
At this moment three candidates remain in the race. It is impossible for Gov. John Kasich to reach the delegate count to become the nominee. Sen. Ted Cruz has a statistical possibility, but it is unlikely he will reach the needed number. Donald Trump leads, but it is unsure if he will reach the needed count of 1237.
I was feeling down after hearing that Florida was won by Donald Trump. I thought it was inevitable that he would be the nominee. But now there is hope that there will be a contested convention in July. I feel it is a time like this that I must speak out.
We must do everything we can to ensure that Donald Trump does not get the nomination. You will notice, I said nothing about giving him support should he be the nominee against a democrat competitor. But he must not be allowed to be the nominee. The reasons are many.
Donald Trump is not a Republican. It is clear that he registered as a republican just so he could run for president. His social and fiscal views are that of a democrat. The problem with Donald Trump isn’t that he is too conservative. The problem is that he is a state loving progressive. Ronald Reagan once said “Government is not the solution to the problem. Government is the problem.” Trump believes the opposite. He was asked recently at a town hall what he believed the three most important functions of the federal government are. He bumbled through an incoherent answer showing to everybody he not only knows nothing about the duties of the government as chartered from our constitution, but that he believes that more government is the answer to our problems.
Donald Trump is an immoral man. I usually don’t question the self proclaimed faith of others, but in this instance it is clear that if Donald Trump were accused of being a Christian, there wouldn’t be enough evidence to get a trial or even a warrant to search the premises. Donald Trump is a bully that uses his wealth and influence to take advantage of those who cannot stand up to his influence. And if he doesn’t get his way, he will just sue you in court. Right now, Donald Trump is involved in 200 outstanding lawsuits.
Donald Trump is actually weak. He talks a tough game, but I have seen this before from people from New York. It is a way of life to talk tough in that region. But to be frank, Donald Trump is afraid of Megyn Kelly. He can’t come on her show or even show up to a debate with her as a moderator. He is a coward.
Donald Trump may have had success as a business man, but this was with his money and with his neck on the line. We have no idea how he will behave when given access to tax payer money that he hasn’t had to work for. He has absolutely no track record as a statesman. He has no voting record. You have no idea what you are going to get.
His political promises are about as likely as Bernie Sander’s. Mexico is not going to build a wall and we are not going to deport 12 million people from this country. I like the idea of making America better than ever before, but I would also like to hear a policy plan on how to make it happen.
In short, this election has made me against something rather than for something. I am against Donald Trump being our nominee. He is polling against Hillary the worst among any of the candidates and we would do well to Dump the Trump.
