The tone from the RIGHT gets even worse - NAKED HATRED replaces ridicule
That line is EXACTLY why this campaign is exactly the way it is.
No one is attacking Trump on his plans.
Is he a charlatan with ideas of how things ought to be and scant thought of how to get there?
Has he looked and read and is ready and is now just play acting to what he know the American people want?
I’ve seen a lot of people I respected LOSE it completely until finally they attack the people. The voters. BIG HUGE ERROR. Fundamental error. Error of the final moment error. The PEOPLE are STUPID(?)
In November if Trump actually wins you’ll be seeing this from the Democrats as well.
What’s been reached has been obvious to me since day 1.
The crazed ideology followed in the last 8 yrs from the executive has made this moment obvious
From the lackluster responses of McCain, and a Romney who apparently scared himself in the 1st debate of 2012, to the scared reactions of McConnell and the final budget busting actions of Ryan, this moment has been obvious.
From the moment US Steel complained of cheap Japanese steel coming into the USA ~1979 this moment has been coming.
From the moment NAFTA passed this moment has been coming.
From the moment the CONSERVATIVES tied themselves to the ideologically pure idea of no regulation (hey, Greenspan you having a good time?) in the mortgage security derivative market, this moment has been coming.
From the moment CATO, and the Federalist, and National Review (WIlliamson, you out there?), and HILLARY, and WIlliam Kristol etc, told American workers, ‘tough shit, cowboy up and find a new Dunkin to work part time in until you will accept wages in like those in Mayasia’, this moment has been coming.
From the moment the Conservative Movement lost connection with the people and adopted a stance as if utopian communism could never be reached but Galt’s Gulch COULD be reached this moment has been coming.
From the moment the conservatives, in their hearts, in the moment in the dark as they fell asleep wondered if maybe the democrats were right, that they held women in contempt, black folks in contempt, asians yadda yadda… this moment has been coming.
And now we are here.
Did this guy pander to segregationist votes while he had an orthodox jewish daughter like any politician or was he like FDR manipulating those around him to the final goal of saving the USA?
Did this guy rip off people who went to Trump U or did he rent his name out and just exhibit only a lack of care?
Does he really dislike women, or was he on show in different persona (Howard Stern in some instances quoted) and then promote THOUSANDS of women, blacks, asians etc on MERIT not even knowing their color?
I don't know. I don't like that I don't know.
But the reaction of the 'true’ conservatives who manufactured this moment by their insouciant disregard of the people, ESPECIALLY over the free trade issue and its RESULTS, I find DISGUSTING.
I’m no huge Trump booster.
But those who LED the right to this moment need to SFTU and LISTEN. Not lecture and threaten.
I see NO ONE in the conservative movement right now, LISTENING, and conceptualizing what OUGHT to be a movement that captures the USA for the next 25-50 years.
I hear and see only invective
I see incomparable LOSERS there.
I see a scary guy, with a big mouth, and some COMMON SENSE ideas getting the nomination. He’s not my first choice, but the rest are choices 8,9, and 10, and Hillary is MORE OF THE LAST 8 YEARS. Too damn bad about Bernie last night. Too damn bad.
So get lost conservative ideologues, in the end you’re no different from useless intelligentsia arguing over Stalin vs Trotsky, and have lost your impact.
Just another institution that has lost the public trust.
Now there are 2 ways you can go. One of them leads to renewal while Trump is doing his thing, and you have time to think, the other leads to 50 years of progressive rule.
