“MY PARTY, RIGHT OR WRONG” IS DANGEROUS THINKING

I’ve never seen such a travesty of a presidential campaign in my life.  The American press–now the Instigator of the People–is rolling in the dough with this one.

As aforementioned, there is no way in hell Donald Trump is going to be President of the United States.  The Republican Party is not going to be stupid enough to nominate him–and if he runs as an independent he cannot possibly win.

But I am quite frightened of the idea of Hillary Clinton as President–and Donald Trump is helping her campaign more than anyone else.  It has even been suggested to me that Donald Trump is a plant for the “Hillary” campaign–and this is certainly possible.

I hate the Republican Party as much as I hate the Democratic Party.

But it concerns me that the Republican Party cannot get its act together.  As much as I hate the Republican Party, I don’t want to see it fall apart.  Because if it does, there will just be one major political party remaining–and this nation will be closer than ever to a one-party, totalitarian state.

Political parties were not expected to develop, in the first place.  There were no political parties when George Washington was elected as our first president–and he was dismayed to see, during his second term, the government he had fought for and helped to establish already unraveling into factions (which were later to be called “parties”).

Yet if these factions would have been outlawed–then we would have had a one-party state way back then.  So political factions–political parties–had to be tolerated.

Now if both the Republican and Democratic Parties unraveled on their own, this would not be so bad.  But the Democratic Party is not about to unravel–it’s as strong as ever.

And this is why you Republican voters need to stop supporting Donald Trump, and start seriously considering the real Republican candidates.  Donald Trump is not a Republican, he is an impostor.  And if Donald Trump were to run as an independent, he would be an impostor.

And though Hillary Clinton is arguably as self-serving as Donald Trump, she is not an impostor–she’s an honest-to-God Democrat.  Yet she has as much character as her husband–which isn’t saying much.

But this post is addressed primarily to Republican voters.

You Republican voters in the South need especially to consider your loyalty to the Republican Party.  In assaulting the history, heritage, and culture of the American South, by censoring (through state and local Republican politicians) the Confederate Flag, and beginning a campaign to eliminate all traces of the Confederate States of America, the Republican Party has betrayed you.  I would suggest you change your voting status to independent–as I did in 2003, when George W. Bush betrayed the trust of the American People by sending troops to Iraq without just cause, and without any consideration for American troops in Iraq or Afghanistan, not to mention Afghan and Iraqi civilians.

But if you choose to remain loyal to the Republican Party–I urge you to demand of your Republican leaders that they stop this assault on your Southern history, heritage, and culture.

The Republican Party needs to get that goddamned clown, Donald Trump, out of the way, and get its act together.

But this won’t happen if Republican voters don’t demand it of their chosen political party.

If you are a card-carrying Democratic voter, you need to stop accepting the whole Democratic package, and start holding the Democratic Party accountable for its policies that you don’t support.

If you are a card-carrying Republican voter, you need to stop accepting the whole Republican package, and start holding the Republican Party accountable for its policies that you don’t support.

And of course if you are a citizen of the United States, you need to stop accepting the whole United States package, and start holding the United States accountable for its policies that you don’t support.

Just as “my country, right or wrong” is dangerous thinking, “my party, right or wrong” is dangerous thinking.
