Yep. Me to. I would like to see the corruption out og out Congress. I had time to chew on the meat you tossed my way yesterday and it did make me
The idea that Trump opened up a hornets nest of phony republican congressmen who were not representing the real conservatives in the party. We can
both think of names so I guess we do not need to make a list. The ones I most focus on are the ones who called him out prior to the November victory.
How that shut up.
So, my take was that they bowed in fear of Trump, simply put, and you shot back no, they realized their positions were jeopardized because they
realized that their constituencies would no longer accept their RINO activities. I accept that but that does make the case that all those
conservatives who would now dump those representatives who do not back Trump have all along accepted lack luster conservative reps for ages. You named
McCain, I can name many others as I am sure you can as well.
So as that could be the case, we have the voting conservatives to blame for the crapola that has represented them now for a long while. I can look
back and suggest that Bush Jr. was not a real conservative but more a puppet for Neo-Cons. I could look back farther and suggest that Daddy Bush was a
Neo-Con establishment RINO. By todays standards of Trumpian conservatives, I don't think that either of those observations are too far afield.
I can go back further to Reagan, another mouthpiece for the corporate agenda. A familiar face from movies and soap sales and in he slides to governor
of California and on into Washington DC. Offering hand outs left and right to the corporate structure and the birth of the NWO. Hail Reagan. Bosh.
And just for converstation I will say that Clinton was a sham. He rode the wave of digital tech that was going to happen regardless of who was in the
White House. He claimed it was because of him. Then into Richie Rich in 2000 who couldn't even beat a weak minded yes man who just rubber stamped the
neo-con agenda that was placed before him.
And who could the Republicans put up against Obama? McCain and what's his face, give me a minute here. Mormon boy, aw well it escapes me now. No
conservatives there, right? Not as I have come to understand conservatives today.
So that leaves us back to Trump. What I see is Trump coming along and desiring to increase his brand, not necessarily to win the presidency, hires a
couple of astute observers of the American political scene. Bannon for one. They advise him of a segment of the American public that is quietly
thirsting for a certain message that has either not been brought forth or at least has not been activated though past Republican administrations and
Trump and his advisors then crafted a campaign that hit all the talking points that the advisors knew would get him traction with that segment of
voters. And it worked, well beyond all their expectations.
I see great similarities between Trump's victory and Obama's . Though they spoke to different constituencies, they both spoke to those who felt
disenfranchised. And yeah, sure, I had hope for Obama , but that was short lived. Maybe six months at best.
So Chip. I"m not one in defense of the Democrat Party. They have failed miserably to my mind. Hiking up the shrew wife of a phony liberal was a self
righteous ''we be the good guys'', you the bad guys'' attitude. They got smacked just as they needed to be. And have they learned their lesson? Snort.
One by one I watched them enter the early race and one by one I watched them drop out and tuck tail to Biden. Sound familiar? Sure does to me. Only
one made any sense to me and that was Gabbard and now she seems destined the never was bin.
Ok, I've rambled on long enough. Thanks for the chance to reply to you Mr. Disk.
