There are people calling Pennsylvania a swing state. It isn’t. Unless she dies in a nuclear accident between now and November, Hillary will win by +4% easily. I have the Freedom to vote #MyConscience2016 and, mathematically, it just won’t matter.
So my plan is as follows: Talk at least 2 people out of Hillary (without talking up Trump) and talking those same 2 people into committing to do the same with 2 other people. Then concentrate on the down-ballot races. Whoever wins should get the most financially cut-throat misers to work with in Congress
Whether or not I vote for Trump, I will not vote for or help Hillary get elected. And I will do all I can to make sure she has to ask Republican bean-counters for every red cent she’ll get to run the Departments
But in the off-chance that Pennsylvania becomes a swing State and winnable for Trump, I do firmly believe he represents the much “Lesser of The 2 Evils”.
This is for reasons both tangible and intangible
We have to make the best judgment we can using the information that’s available to us and the information that’s available to us is that Clinton is an absolute disaster for the Country and conservatives.
- We know she will continue the job-poisonous, Social Justice Dystopic, Quasi Socialist Welfare State that is Obama’s America.
- We know she is a gun-grabber.
- We know she is a rabid Pro-Choice Abomination
- We know Huma Abedin, Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown, Steny Hoyer, Alan Grayson, Xavier Beccara, Elijah Cummings and more of D.C.’s Murderers’ Row will have high-level positions in her Administration.
- We know she will never reassert American power or put our military back to the priority it deserves in the Federal Budget.
- We know she will go as far Left as possible to nominate Scalia’s replacement on the SCOTUS
- We know the Media will hold Trump accountable for anything he says or does. We know the Media will glad-hand President Hillary 25-30 times a day
Despite all this, it’s the intangible consequences to this election that frighten me the most as they will have the most far-reaching effects
The afore-mentioned points are all deformities common to contemporary Democrats. The real problems with Hillary’s election to the office is that it has become a fact of the matter is that Trump is a walking, talking, living, breathing embodiment of the liberal caricature of a contemporary Republican. A caricature that, wrongly, became engraved into the conventional wisdom of politically disengaged people who only wake up to vote their wallets and those engages only enough to vote for their monthly benefits.
Through a (perhaps unplanned) collusion between the Media and Democrats, this election has turned into a contest of The Rational, Reasonable, Empathetic Democrats and The Aloof, Bigoted, Disconnected Billionaire Buffoons everyone –thinks– Republicans are.
Given this climate, losing this will effectively cement this caricature into the political psyche of the Nation for more than a generation. The GOP will never recover even the small amount of brand equity it had before 2016.
There will never again be a chance at effective Border Security.
Mike Pence, who believe it or not, was superior to any of the 18 that ran in the Republican primary will have effectively closed his own coffin on his political career when, in fact, he should actually be President.
Originalists will have lost the SCOTUS for the next 2 generations.
Dodd-Frank Reform and The Affordable Care Acts will NEVER be revisited and would likely be expanded and strengthened through regulation given Hillary’s “mandate”
The Media in this Country will be emboldened to continue lynching the GOP (or whatever Party rises to champion conservatives) out of existence.
Think about all the above before answering yourself (honestly) this question:
Which is worse: 4 Years of an emasculated President Trump or a Big Beautiful Headstone over top of the Grave of The Conservative Movement and waiting 40 years for it to, maybe, be reborn in a nigh impossible womb of a 1/2 Billion Person Euro-Social Democracy?
