So I just watched the Republican Primary, and I have some thoughts:
First of all, it’s clear that Fox News is trying to sabotage Trump. The first question they asked was clearly directed at ostracizing him. Trump is leading in the polls, why should he agree to support the GOP establishment if they shaft him? If the Republicans are serious about winning they will pick Trump. The Fox people thought they would start off by trying to embarrass or condemn Trump with that question, but the audience cheered wildly when he said he would not rule out running 3rd party.
Why should Trump give up his edge? Hurt feelings is not a reason, and solidarity with those who would betray you is also not a reason. Trump is a businessman, not a politician, so of course when he has an edge over the competition he’s going to hang onto it.
I also couldn’t help but notice that they tried to minimize his speaking time, and that most of their questioning toward him was of a hostile nature. Fox is SUPPOSED to be the conservative network, but they were really acting like liberals. That makes them cuckservatives.
The fact that both the GOP establishment and the liberal media are doing everything they can to sabotage Trump just goes to show how bad the corruption is, and boosts his popularity.
If the GOP is serious about winning they have no choice but to put Trump forward as their candidate. If they don’t, he’s going to run 3rd party, and then either Trump will win or a Democrap will, but it won’t be a Republican. If it’s a Democrap then there is going to be amnesty + open borders + another amnesty x 4 children/Mexican woman. The Republicans will never win another presidential race if that happens. So my advice to the GOP is to please be serious. If you want to live in Mexico then get up and go there, but don’t bring it on us. Not all of us have the money to live in gated communities and put our kids into expensive private schools where they won’t be enriched to death or shaken down for lunch money.
But I digress…
I’ll say a word about each of the candidates, and end with Trump, who I support:
This guy had a few solid things to say. He could be what he appears to be, and I like how he clearly laid out what he would do if elected. Planned Parenthood, Obamas orders, and Obamacare all need to go.
The fact that he slammed Rick Santorum and went against him are a huge plus.
Aside from Trump, Ben Carson is the only one who isn’t a politician, which gives him points as far as I am concerned. The most solid point he made was about having a brain, which ought to be one of the most basic qualifications for running for presidency. His comment about Washington having half their brains removed was spot on. They seemed to give him less attention than the others, but still more than they gave Trump.
What makes me skeptical of Ben Carson is that he met with Al Sharptongue, and aside from that he doesn’t have all the money that Trump does, so it’s possible he may still be a stock car, like the establishment GOP.
Of all the guys running, this fellow is the worst. He’s not even a cuckservative, he’s an SJW. I find his overt support for “gay marriage” unsettling.
“The courts have ruled,” he says. So if the Supreme Court says that all men have to have one testicle amputated I suppose it’s safe to assume that Kasich will support it? Since when does the SC decide what is moral, and where in the Constitution was homosexuality listed as a Constitutionally protected behavior? It’s not there because back then it was correctly recognized as perversion and deviance.
JK is worthless, and needs to bow out. I don’t see how he’s any different than Hitlery, and it bothers me that some people in the audience actually cheered.
Here’s how my dialogue would go with Megan Kelly if she asked me that sort of question:
MK: What would you do if your kid grew up to be gay?
Me: What would you do if your kid grew up and committed murder or sacrificed an animal to Satan?
MK: What kind of question is that?
Me: My point exactly.
I would have flat out told her that my kid would never be gay. My son will grow up to be a man, and if I have a daughter she will grow up to be a woman. If my kid did something seriously wrong I would refer them to what the Bible says on it, whether it’s homosexuality, adultery, polyamory, theft, lying, murder, etc.
I was also offended at JK for trying to bring God into his lunacy. God says very clearly that homosexuality is an abomination. Mainstream science used to also say that before it got taken over by SJW’s.
I’m sure that JK was talking about God because he’s running for the Republican nomination, and he wanted to TRY to connect with Christian voters, but to Christians he will come across as taking the name of God in vain, because that’s what he did.
An empty milksop. I’m not voting for a man who doesn’t even speak English at home, and who is pro-amnesty. Also, he’s pro-amnesty, and the rest of his family were terrible presidents.
This man was part of the amnesty gang of eight. Any talk about immigration from him is insincere. I’m not interested in integrating any more of the illegals, and in fact I would also like to eliminate most of the legal immigration. He showed where his sympathies and loyalties were when he advocated for amnesty.
Most of what Walker said sounded good, and I agreed with him on everything. He presented himself logically and was on point, but he doesn’t project strength or conviction. If he does everything he says he will do, then great, but I suspect he will be a stock car and get in line with whatever is going on there. Even if he’s not a stock car, I doubt he will have the raw power to make people get in line with him.
Chris Christie is clearly a liberal. I don’t know what a Republican has to do to win an election in a liberal state, but he’s been all chummy with Obama, and he’s clearly OK with keeping tabs on actual Americans. Yes, it’s about “national security,” but why not just keep tabs on Muslims, who aren’t really Americans in any meaningful sense anyway? Because he’s a liberal who believes in big government, which involves viewing all citizens as potential domestic enemies.
I agreed with most of what Huckabee had to say. He is spot on about abortion, homosexuality, and that trans-rubbish being forced into the military. In fact his comments about the military were among the best comments in the debate. The military exists to protect Americans from enemies either abroad or right on the border. It’s not supposed to be a social experiment to turn America into something it was never meant to be. The Dems are clearly using the military as a testing ground for SJW ideas/cultural Marxism. Huckabee was right to point that out.
He was also right to point out that abortion is already against the Constitution.
After Trump, I would have to say that Huckabee is the best guy.
Rand Paul had some decent things to say. He was right to filibuster against the Dems for wanting to engage in target drone strikes against Americans, and he is right to say that government should be kept out of people’s personal lives as much as possible.
He was spot on when he said that marriage and guns should not be registered in Washington. Spot on.
I also agree with him about stopping foreign aid. Let’s cut that, and let me keep more of my paycheck. Only what I would say is that even in times of economic prosperity we should not be giving money to these foreign countries unless there is something clearly in it for us. Most of these people hate us and would kill us given the chance.
However, “American” does not mean the same thing it used to mean. Today “American” means anyone who obtains citizenship. Being an American citizen now means less than being a Roman citizen. It doesn’t matter if government gives everyone a piece of paper that says they’re Americans, we’re not all the same, and a Muslim (for example) is not an American in any traditional or meaningful sense. I don’t care if Obama drone kills a Muslim with a US passport who goes overseas to join ISIS.
Maybe Rand knows this and has shifted a little since the filibuster, but really we need to kick out all the Muslims. No Muslim should be a US citizen.
Trump is the guy I support. When he first appeared I did not take him seriously. I just thought of him as some guy from another reality TV show, who was also tied in with the Ms. America competition, and since I didn’t care about either of those things, I didn’t care about him.
What first caught my attention was his talk about building a wall across the border of Mexico. None of those other guys ever seriously considered the idea before he brought it up, but it is something which is so serious, urgent, and obvious. The media immediately set to bashing him, but he’s right.
We have nothing to gain from becoming Mexico, and since Mexico is more violent than Afghanistan, we really ought to section it off. History has shown me that any time a barbarous nation borders on a more advanced civilization there is a constant threat of invasion, especially if there is any kind of shortage or disturbance in the barbarian land. The barbarians can elevate their standard of living by entering the more advanced area, but it does nothing at all to help the average person in the advanced country. That is why the Chinese built a wall.
The way Trump deals with the reporters is perfect. The liberal media has been a seditious force in this country for decades, and the Republicans have been slowly giving up their manhood to placate them (which is futile), but Trump is a sharp reversal of that. He puts those jackals in their place.
He’s also a positive role model for millenials, who, for the most part, have never been taught to act like men, and don’t know how a man should be. He doesn’t apologize to make people like him, and when SJW’s try to pull their bollox on him he shows everyone what jack asses they are.
The Fox people really made fools out of themselves and their network by being so hostile to Trump.
It doesn’t matter that he used to support the Democrats. Biden used to be a Republican. People change. He saw how the Democrap policies have been killing New York, which caused him to change his mind. If he wanted to run with the Democrats he would have. Trump is independently wealthy and does not need sponsors.
Trump does not need sponsors, which makes him more reliable than any of the other candidates. Furthermore, the fact that he is worth 10 billion proves that he knows how to generate wealth and manage money in a wise and responsible fashion. Trump has demonstrated his superiority to all the others, and the superior man should rule. The sensitive man should not rule, nor should the one who panders.
Compare Trump to Kasich. Trump dismisses the accusation of misogyny as nonsense, and the look on Megan Kelly’s face when the crowd cheered was priceless. One could see the seething rage combined with embarrassment. Kasich, on the other hand, bends over and accepts the gayness. One is a man, and the other is a cuckold.
All the other candidates share one weakness in common; they need sponsors, which means that others have power over them.
Trump is also the closest we can get to privatization of government, at this point, and government needs to be privatized. If Trump is elected, we can use his success to bolster our case for the eventual, total privatization of government.
Trump needs to be president, although Ted Cruz or Mike Huckabee would make good running mates. Still, I imagine he will pick someone he knows from organization, and whoever he picks will be highly qualified.
