They label themselves as Conservatives, but they have always been in the Republican Party. Poor babies; they didn’t get their way and now they don’t want their party’s nominee to win. Why waste time reminding them that they are, in fact, Republicans? Why confirm to them that the next President WILL BE either a Republican or Democrat? More specifically, why remind them, that the next President will have the last name of either Trump, or Clinton?
Instead of recognizing the facts, they proclaim “Never Trump”! They say that they must vote their conscience! They say Trump is not conservative enough for them. It becomes apparent that these conservatives would rather lose than have the nominee from their own political party in the White House. They are so distraught that the best opportunity in a generation, to get a “Conservative” to the head of government is floating away, just as a body on fire at a ceremonial Viking funeral floats from the shore into sunset.
The truth is, that they are hypocrites. Not the kind that party like drunken rock stars on Friday and Saturday night, but ensure they get to church on Sunday morning; but, they are the of kind of hypocrites that, to paraphrase Ronald Reagan, “know so many things that aren’t so.” They think they are the enlightened and others… are ignorant or being fooled.
The same people who despise Trump now, are the same people who supported McCain, who are the same people who supported Romney. IF they got it so wrong then, why can they get it wrong now? They seem to think they’re voting for the second coming of Jesus, when they’re only voting for a guy to run their government. They can’t see that they don’t need to love him, nor pledge allegiance to him… ‘again, because he’s not sacred. They only need to vote for someone who will lead to their political outcomes. Smaller government? Strong defense? Lower Taxes? Repeal of Obamacare? […if that is their goal]
Some Conservatives truly want to put their collective faiths, into another human being! But they only want one who thinks, and believes, exactly as they believe. They’d rather lose the opportunity to have a President who shares their political party, to someone who despises their Party, them, and their beliefs. It is a form of Conservative Supremacy. They feel their Conservatism trumps their party (when it should only be their Religious beliefs that do). They fail to recognize that they are doing exactly what those of ‘that other religion, say in nearly every poll regarding Sharia. Many Conservatives, just as Muslims do, seem to be confusing their religion with their politics. Obviously, they’ll say they cannot separate the two… just as Muslims say!
A President is merely a man, or soon, maybe a woman. He’ll just be a guy who signs or does not sign Bills put in front of him by a chaotic Congress. He’ll just be a guy who does, or does not play golf immediately after a terrorist attack. He’ll just be a guy who will, or will not sign a repeal of Obamacare. It’ll be a person who will organize how government taxes American citizens. It will be a person who will use their judgement to sign or counter-sign the plethora of Executive Orders signed by the current dude. She’ll just be a person who will appoint judges to the Supreme Court. She’ll just be a President who will continue all of the same policies, that you despised from the current President for the last 8 years.
You believe yourself, both patriots and Conservatives… ‘and we all know that you would dump your patriotism for your conservatism. But what if you were just a symbol of a party that is trying desperately to save itself; and who is begging you to protect your beliefs, and not your country? Why are you so keen on assisting a lady who wants nothing more, than to see you and your beliefs obscured? Isn’t it curiously IRONIC, that many of you who attacked others in your party for being Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) over the past few years, are all but admitting, that you are in fact, Republicans In Name Only, who will only vote for “Conservatives”?
But it’s OK Conservatives! Give up voting for a guy that played by the rules and won your party’s nomination, in favor of allowing someone, NOT in your party, to walk away with the Presidency. Perhaps that’ll show them all that you’re serious; and that you’re a “true” conservative!
Instead of #NeverTrump, you might consider #ConservativeSupremacy
