While appearances are often deceiving, at this juncture I am convinced Mr. Trump will most likely fail in November. Why? He's not a practiced, professional politician and most Americans are conditioned to believe that only a person who grammatically and smoothly articulates in riddles and double-talk--not a citizen representative--makes for an effective steward. Thus, I have precious little faith that the painfully ignorant American electorate is capable of doing in November what primal survival instincts would require of them.
My guess is that millions of voters will be inclined to either stay home, play pokemon, or do whatever it is the mindless do, and, reflecting Hillary's character flaws and aping indoctrinated automatons everywhere, millions more will be blindly seduced by Progressive tyranny and corruption. Yes, they’re THAT stupid.
Ultimately, in a democratic republic the People bear SOLE responsibility for the quality and character of their leadership. So, it’s not at all surprising that this dumbed-down electorate will continue to anoint sub-standard, self-serving, elitist stooges of the first order. In short, the People shall reap what they sow until elections no longer matter and political oppression becomes the order of the day.
As for me, and in concert with other patriots, I plan to seriously push for organized civil disobedience, state nullification and, yes, secession if Progressive thugs and Islamist sympathizers are again swept into power in November. There is simply no other reasonable recourse for thoughtful, fearful American patriots who cherish Liberty, Christian traditions, constitutional order and free enterprise.
If we objectively compare our current political condition to those conditions plaguing Americans in 1776, it becomes painfully obvious that the level of totalitarianism and lawlessness Americans confront today is far more insidious. What patriots are willing to do about this is the burning question.
Finally, unity at ANY price is suicidal, and our Founders, to a man, would never have advocated unity over Liberty. Never!
Retired 2003 as Assoc. Dir. Refugee & Immigration Services in Rochester. A Vietnam veteran (Captain, Infantry/Civil Affairs/Psy Ops), spent many years in Southeast Asia, Africa, Subcontinent managing disaster relief and development projects. Am a small businessman and keenly interested in history and the Constitution. Concerned that our country is being inexorably drawn toward Socialism and that Americans are unwittingly abandoning our founding governing principles and, in the process, our liberties, way of life and economic vitality, and disillusioned with the radicalized Democratic Party, became a member of the Greece and Monroe County Republican Committees until July 2012 when I became a registered member of the Conservative Party. Although politically conservative and a constitutional originalist, I welcome all constructive opinions. Only through common-sense dialogue, objective evaluation of opposing patriotic viewpoints, and a studious adherence to the Constitution can we all learn and develop responsible positions which will benefit our Republic.
