We Purists Cannot Be Too Surprised

08 September 2017 @ 14:47

Your honor, if it may please The Court…

Please mark the following as Exhibit #456…

Watching some of those conservatives who voted for Trumpus Pompey Magnus trying to defend his recent work with those vile creatures — like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer — who lead the Democratic Party, is cringe-inducing.

Seeing people who are supposedly principled, beyond Ideology, desperately seeking to paper-over and cover-up the fact that Caesar has betrayed them is Pathetic.

Nothing Trump does in this vein is surprising: after all, he’s not a conservative.  Never has been.  Never will be, because he lacks a Conservative Temperament.  It’s not Instinctual.  The President is a New York Liberal and, sadly, a typical Modern Big Businessman.

A dull and dreary Pragmatism permeates his Being.  ‘Making the deal’ is all.  Playing ‘The Game’ is the biggest joy in such a person’s life; racking-up the highest Score — no matter the content of the points won — is the be-all and end-all of Life.  Such people are not much different from Degenerate Gamblers, except they tend to play with other people’s [like investors and taxpayers] monies.

Pelosi herself bragged that she had gotten results after asking him to tweet reassurances that Dreamers shouldn’t worry about being deported over the next six months while lawmakers try to secure a DACA fix.

“I was telling my colleagues, ‘This is what I asked the president to do,’ and boom boom boom, the tweet appeared,” she said at a news conference Thursday.

‘Boom, Boom, Boom’, indeed.

Trumpus Pompey Magnus will team-up with anyone who can, he feels, enable him to ‘score’ more ‘points’ — be they Social or Political or Financial or…whatever.  There is not an atom of Right Reason that you will find in his Soul [though, to be fair, Trump, unlike Misfit-Malcontent Ideologues such as Schumer, Pelosi, Durbin, et. al., has shreds of Decency].

The bona fides of those conservatives who voted for him [for whatever reason] and who still defend him after he has shown his true colors, brightly and vividly, must be questioned.

But, to be fair, we Purists cannot be too surprised at the behavior of our supposed brethren.  After all, whether we admit it directly or just sense it, we know America is NOT as conservative as conservatives would like to believe — The Triumph Of Leftist Thinking in America has seen to that.

If therefore a people will not be free; if they have not virtue enough to maintain their liberty against a presumptuous invader, they deserve no pity, and are to be treated with contempt and ignominy. Had not Caesar seen that Rome was ready to stoop, he would not have dared to make himself the master of that once brave people. He was indeed, as a great writer observes, a smooth and subtle tyrant, who led them gently into slavery; “and on his brow, ‘ore daring vice deluding virtue smil’d”.

By pretending to be the peoples greatest friend, he gain’d the ascendency over them: By beguiling arts, hypocrisy and flattery, which are even more fatal than the sword, he obtain’d that supreme power which his ambitious soul had long thirsted for: The people were finally prevail’d upon to consent to their own ruin.

—Samuel Adams, writing as ‘CANDIDUS’ in the Boston Gazette,
14 October 1771

    With the caveat that voting for a third party candidate was basically voting for Hillary by proxy, most Americans who voted for Trump did so for that very reason…there was no way we could have stood another 4 to 8 years of Obama’s policies or worse.

    Plus voting for Trump was a big FU to the establishment. I think that was probably the biggest factor in his winning.

    Trump is the best we could do under the circumstances. While he in no president Ruthless Hardass even less a conservative president Ruthless Hardass, Still he was the closest we could get elected. There is an old (I believe Reagan or perhaps Buckley adage) that you run the most conservative candidate you can get elected. Well Trump was that candidate. None of the conservative’s running for the nomination could have pulled it off so here we are. A major part of this phenomenon is the fault of conservatives themselves Conservatives particularly conservative politicians are simply unable to express conservative principals in a way that describes what the tangible benefits of adhering to conservative principles are for the non-ideological voting public. Couple that with the fact that Republicans have been running as defenders and implementer’s of those principles and then abandoning those principles as soon as they get to Washington is all the explanation one needs as to why we don’t have a conservative president. So Trump is what we have. As to the debt limit deal, time will reveal whether this was a brilliant gambit or a sellout resulting in disaster.
