The HYSTERIA today among real Conservatives is a remarkable testament
OBSERVATION, not preference.
I’m too disgusted to have a preference.
So what is the next step? What do you do now if you think Goldwater and Reagan actually had a clue?
What do you do if you abhor the evangelical stranglehold of ‘values’ dictating what can be called conservative?
Use the next 4 years or 8 years to make yourself rational, whether Trump wins or not.
Figure out why the ideology of Free Trade DOES NOT WORK, and find the practical solution set so that people who are not going to be coding PHP or MYSQL or Ruby on Rails, or using the Android SDK, or ending MS or Cancer, and have a high school education can ONCE AGAIN have meaningful and challenging careers.
Figure out how to have a foreign policy and a military to match that which can be sustained OVER THE LONGER TERM
Figure out how to make risk in the financial world manageable without TBTF
Find the correct place for God.
It’s clear if nothing changes there will be no GOP in about 5 months except some shell pretending to campaign under a false flag.
A Donald Trump cannot ‘take over’ the GOP. He can ride a wave of frustration caused by deafness, inaction and elitism to a nomination, but THAT’S ALL IT CAN BE.
Grow up, put away the Toquemada purity tests and grow up.
