Anti-Trump conservatives – what on earth are they thinking?
The 2016 Presidential election nears its end and the attacks on Trump continue.
And that’s totally understandable. Of course leftists, globalists and anti-Americans would oppose a Trump candidacy. I totally get that.
What’s harder to explain is the bitter opposition to Trump among some Republicans, conservatives, constitutionalists and Christians. What’s going on there?
This election could be a very tight one. Every vote counts. So if enough Republicans vote for another candidate, or withhold their vote, it could cost Trump the election.
So why do some conservatives oppose Trump?
Well, it was a hard-fought Republican presidential primary, with 17 candidates. Some voters were attached to another candidate who didn’t win the nomination. Some even continue to say that “XYZ Candidate would do better against Hillary than Trump.” But hey, that’s all theoretical. It’s time to live in the present. Trump is the party candidate.
Some say that Trump is not a true conservative.
Well, it’s true that Trump is not a conventional conservative. His background is different, and he didn’t work his way up through the traditional routes of being a senator or governor or some such position.
Trump has jumped right into being a candidate by starting at the top – running for president.
As for Trump not being a true conservative, let me ask this question. How many conservative Anti-Trumpers voted for Romney, McCain and the Bush Family? Probably most of them.
I suggest you get past the rhetoric and study up on former Republican presidents George H.W Bush, George W. Bush, and candidates John McCain and Mitt Romney. Frankly, none of these individuals were really all that conservative, and they had many personal and political strikes against them that would disqualify them among the voters.
And yet, Republicans voted for these guys. Why is it suddenly taboo to vote for Trump?
As for the American conservative movement, let’s be frank. In recent years it’s been an abject failure. It has failed to halt the growth of Big Government, the erosion of personal liberty, and the moral degradation of our society.
It hasn’t even protected our borders.
And it’s not all incompetence. In many cases, Republicans (and the donors who support the GOP) have intentionally worked against conservative principles.
Look at the Republicans in Congress. It would be hard to find a bigger bunch of collaborators with the liberal Democratic agenda. They boast of their great conservative principles to the rubes back in their states. But they won’t effectively oppose the leftist agenda in Washington, and sometimes openly collude with it.
Look at Paul Ryan, the GOP’s leader in the House of Representatives. Ryan is an open borders globalist fanatic who has worked to sabotage Trump’s candidacy.
Social conservatives have failed to stop same-sex marriage. Is that Trump’s fault?
Some say it’s a Christian duty to refuse to vote for Trump. Really?
Whatever the state of Trump’s personal faith, Trump is more sympathetic to American Christians and supportive of religious freedom than is Hillary. Can’t the Anti-Trump conservatives recognize that?
If Hillary can just put a few justices on the Supreme Court, our freedoms are in danger, including (but not limited to) freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the right to bear arms.
But the conservative No Trumpers would rather feel good about themselves than vote for the good of our country.
Some Anti-Trumpers have this deep-seated resentment of Donald Trump. They need to grow up and get over it.
Remember, this is not a junior high popularity contest. It’s not just about Trump the man. It’s about Trump the candidate versus Hillary the candidate, and what their respective candidacies mean to the future of the country.
Consider immigration. Everything revolves around immigration. That’s because most immigrants who vote cast their ballots for the Democrats.
So if mass immigration (legal and illegal) continues, the government will become a one-party state. The GOP (or any party with similar purported values) will not be able to win national elections.
That’s what we’re talking about, the future of our country, of your children and grandchildren. So yes, this election of is enormous importance.
It’s time to vote for a chance to preserve our country, our constitution, our religious freedom. If Hillary wins, you can forget about all that. And nobody can stop Hillary but Trump.
That’s why the Mainstream Media is doing everything it can to stop Trump. And we can’t let them do that.
Vote for Trump!
