“WE THE PEOPLE” MUST BE VIGILANT IN PROTECTING THE BEST GOVERNMENT THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN.
THIS MAY NOT BE A PERFECT SYSTEM BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE SELF-RULED AND CAN BE MANIPULATED BY THEIR OWN SELFISH DESIRES, BUT IT IS THE BEST THERE IS WHEN PROTECTING “FREE WILL” .
Free will or free agency means having legal and political rights of a citizen, enjoying civil and political liberty, enjoying political independence or freedom from outside domination, to cause to be free.
I know many disappointed Americans are having trouble dealing with election results, making ridiculous claims that they will move out of the country or vote Democrat, but that is just stupid talk and will not help the situation.
Let me tell you what I believe we need to be thinking and hope that will ease your minds a bit and cause smart thinking to reside again. Okay, I may not be politically correct with use of these words, I’ve probably ticked off a few of you, but this is not the time to be coddling people when so much depends on accurate thinking.
I just read a report that says everything I’ve wanted to say. Let me paraphrase the report with the suggestion that you read the full article.
For the “Ted Cruz supporter” or one of the other candidates, who believe he or she would have brought sanity to the Oval Office, let me state the obvious: “the best antidote to the nightmare we have traveled during two terms of Barack Obama…[is] now I have a job to do, as a Republican, as a conservative, as an American. It is my job to resist any urge to walk off in a huff, allowing my wounded feelings to permit a Hillary Clinton presidency.”

But now I have a job to do, as a Republican, as a conservative, as an American. It is my job to resist any urge to walk off in a huff, allowing my wounded feelings to permit a Hillary Clinton presidency.
There are two kinds of Republicans now: those who get that and those who don’t.
…Maybe they are pundits who just can’t believe their antennae were aimed so badly. Maybe they are donor-class elites stunned that voters did not follow their suggestions. Maybe they are party bosses quivering at the thought of a nominee who won’t march to their tune. Maybe they are establishment comfort-zone addicts getting the vapors because the old half-measures have fallen out of favor.
No matter the reason, to everyone whose head slumped as Donald Trump delivered his Indiana victory speech, which might as well have been his nomination acceptance speech, a wake-up call is due.
It is time to wake up from the absurd dreams of a third party run. It is time to wake up from the stupor that has led so many to insult the millions of Americans who have given Trump his victory. It is time to wake up from the twisted revenge fantasy of the geniuses who preach that some punishment must be meted out for the sin of elevating Trump.
The punishment they offer is a Hillary Clinton presidency, and no conservative should be willing to pay that price.
Is Trump’s conservatism spotty? Does some of his populism actually offend conservative values? Yes. has some of his behavior been soundly un-presidential? To say the least. While some criticism of Trump has been wildly excessive and poisonous, some of it has been more than deserved.
But any conservatives stewing in the juices of resentment need to recognize that we have an economy to save and a Constitution to protect. Donald Trump will not approach either task with the clarity of a Cruz, but he will be a better steward of both than the absolutely guaranteed disaster of Obama’s third term.
A Hillary presidency will bring certain ruin to the Supreme Court. Illegal immigration will be ignored if not encouraged. Crushing government expansion will suffocate businesses and taxpayers. Global jihad will be soft-pedaled. The Second Amendment will be attacked without end. The political correctness that suppresses rights and poisons discourse will have a continued home in the presidency.
I could not have stated better the reality of what we face now and what we need to do to get on track to win back America. “The suggestion that Hillary and Trump are sort of the same thing is evidence of a deep perceptual disorder. The good news is that there is a cure. It’s called the healing power of time, coupled with the growing menace of the Hillary campaign.”
- Some of us “will probably be joined by a snooty resistance that will never accept the will of the primary voters. But for most, once the conventions come and go, a comforting focus will settle in.
- Donald Trump is a candidate who does not bring a complete package of conservatism. At best, he may actually do the conservative things he says he will do, and the rest will be a mixed bag no worse than “big-government conservative” George W. Bush offered, and surely no worse than his brother Jeb would have tried to sell us.
- Pray the “NeverTrump” cult gets over their grudges and decide to fight the battle every conservative must now take up: the fight to save America from Hillary Clinton.
