Trump v. Business as Usual

By now, I think I've heard all the arguments against Trump, and, frankly, none of them hold water. Yes, it's possible that Trump is a phony, and will govern like a liberal if elected. On the other hand, we know that the others — Clinton, Sanders, Kasich and Cruz — are phonies, no doubt about it, and will govern as liberals or something worse.

About the Democrats, seriously, there's noting to debate. Hillary is as phony as they come, and all of Bernie's plans are phony, whether he knows it or not. The best thing you can say about him is that he's delusional, and really thinks he can give everybody free stuff. In either case, the march toward super-big government will continue. Hilly will need to show how macho she is, by bombing somebody or other, wasting more money and Americn lives, and creating a few million more "refugees" that just haveto be let in. Bernie will be so damn peaceful that yahoos around the world will be encouraged and we'll have more terrorism here and there, and end up with more war anyway. And of course both of them love illegal immigrants and want more and more of them.

Kasich has gone on record as promising not to do anything about the immigration crisis, because it would be too expensive, or it wouldn't be nice, or something. And he wants to send arms to Ukraine in hopes of starting WW III with Russia. Cruz is trying to sound like he plans to do something about immigration, but his heart clearly isn't in it, and he'd never an mentioned the issue if Trump hadn't brought it up. Cruz is neocon, and that means he's far more concerned about Israel's borders than he is about ours, and that will almost certainly involve six or seven new wars in the Middl East, Come to think of it, he's probably also more concerned about Goldman-Sachs' borders.

So that leaves Trump. No, I don't think the polls make much sense. How many Reagan Democrats is a bozo like Cruz going to attract? Really. I can see Trump getting them all back. As for Kasich, if through some chicanery he got nominated, the Trump supporters will be too damn mad to vote for anybody.

And what does the race so far tell us about the Republican Establishment? Over at the Unz Review [link], Fred Reed explains:

The Mask Comes Off: Putrefaction Most Foul
Late breaking news: Jim Webb has endorsed Trump over Hillary [link].
Quibcags: Kagome of Inuyasha (犬夜叉) shows that she's well aware of the putrefaction, and Akane Tendo of  Ranma ½ (らんま½) is showing concern to illustrate the quote.


  1. Anyone who can not see the difference between Trump and the others has no business voting.

  2. I said before Trump should choose Webb as VP. Then there might be 16 years, easily enough to get this country back online.

  3. No, that is why the Bundy Ranch and Malheur refuge were treated so seriously.
    Cityfolk right wingers won't burn their cities like the BLM and FS does, but armed ranchers have a shorter fuse and a much larger area where bodies can be disappeared.

    LeVoy Tillicum was executed. Now there are political prisoners in show trials (no, you can't have that lawyer, stay in solitary, two trials at the same time, one in OR and one in NV, good luck).

    Only Trump has a chance of defusing things. And it is that serious.
