Response To The Plea Of The Trumpists

20 April 2016 @ 09:56

Over at Protein Wisdom, in a comment left on a post by Jeff Goldstein, SteveAZ made a plea in the aftermath of the the New York Primary:

Now that Trump has bested Cruz in NYC I think it’s time for all of us to seek common ground behind the GOP candidate with the best chances for winning in Nov. We at Jeff’s site have much more in common than you would gather from this comments thread.

Let’s seize on these shared concerns and forge a united front going forward.

This is something I suspect we’ll be hearing from a lot of Trump Supporters in the next few days.

My response to them all…

So Steve: you’re saying we conservatives and Classical Liberals should find common ground with those of you who support a man who would do nothing to halt the hardening of this country into a Statist Regime?

You’re saying that we should make our peace with the inevitability of Statism? That we should seek to preserve those few Freedoms and Liberties we have left, while accepting the ‘Reality’ of the situation [ie: be Pragmatic]? That we should work with you to promote a would-be-Caesar because, unlike with Mzzz. Rodham, we have a chance of cutting little deals with Citizen Trump? That we should accept that the best we can hope for are scraps liberated from the Despotic Table?

‘Time to make peace with Caesar’, eh?

Samuel Adams and Company wouldn’t work with the Loyalists who, like the Trumpists, wanted to work within the Corrupt System to reform it. As noble as men like John Dickinson were, they were pathetically blind to the fact that working within the Corrupt System meant compromising and betraying their beliefs because that was the only way to effectively get anything done within a Debased, Depraved, and Immoral System.

When you allow your own Soul to be infected with Corruptions, you can never trust your motives or actions any longer. Corruption is a virulent Cancer.

The answer is ‘No’ — a resounding, unyielding ‘Nay!’

Non serviam!

The Danger is general; and should we succumb under the heavy Rod now hanging over us, we might be esteemed the base Betrayers of the Common Interest.

—Samuel Adams, letter to Wymberley Jones, 16 July 1774

    An excellent post on letting our values fade away from my view.

    “with those of you”

    Yep. Slam those doors shut! Keep your spines stiff!

    ..just don’t ask for help when you’re alone in a room with GOP Elitists who still want to rape you.

    Jovially, of course!

    They’re Trumpkinheads. They don’t know who John Dickinson is. They think Gouverneur Morris is misspelling, Sam Adams a beer brand and Franklin a mint.

    …because NOTHING says, “I’m a Classic Liberal against Statism!” like supporting a career politician who enables the passage of legislation damaging (if not ultimately destroying) America’s sovereignty…the Trans Pacific Trade fiasco! RIGHT?!? (/s)

    The Trans Pacific Trade fiasco is “the other side of the coin of the immigration issue”…except that the Trans Pacific Trade Deal does it all in one big swoop all at once, as opposed to the immigration “invasion” doing it over generations. If you care about one, you MUST also look carefully at the other.

    HERE’S GOOD OL’ TEDDY BOY AT WORK (never mind the talk; watch the actions)

    * May 2015 – Cruz creates a “Fast Track” Trans Pacific trade rider to attach to TPA, which changes the vote threshold for approval/disapproval to a simple majority – thereby ensuring its passage. Cruz also votes down an Amendment requiring congressional notification prior to China/Russia joining deal.

    * June/July 2015 – Cruz votes against his own TPA bill, though the rider created ensures its passage.

    Cruz is a smarmy, plausible-deniability-expert who will sell America down the river.

      You are supporting a liberal democrat that is pro-abortion, anti-federalism, pro-big government, pro-crony capitalism, who supported the Dream act and regularly dissed Ronald Reagan, supported John Kerry, and is friends with the Clintons. A guy who got less votes winning his home state of NY than Cruz got in WI. Who until yesterday was not even a Republican. You are a stupid, reality-denying-expert who is selling America down the river with your own actions – to Hell with you and to Hell with Trump

      Donald Trump is a 10 time Hillary donor. Also Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Weiner…

      Those are facts, not speculative fantasies, like the notion that there’s anything the slightest bit conservative about Trump.

    I don’t blame Trump for much of this predicament that we’re in. He’s a conman, and he’s doing what conmen do: use the gullible for his own benefit.

    What worries me is that his supporters are the exact mirror image of Obama’s (and any Leftist’s) supporters: snarky, sniveling, immature, vicious, ill-informed cult-of-personality types.

    When even a substantial part what is portrayed as the “Right” is infected with these types I see no hope for the future of this country.
