PART 1 of 2

Congressman Ryan, Senator McConnell,
Reince Priebus, et al...
You have made it quite clear that
you, the Republican establishment, do not like Donald J. Trump as the
Republican standard bearer in the upcoming presidential race.
Republican voters have made it
equally clear that they support Donald J. Trump. You, however, choose to avoid
hearing what the voters want... nothing new there. You ignore the fact that
more people voted for Donald J. Trump during the various primary contests than
have ever voted for a Republican primary candidate and that he defeated a field
of 16 establishment Republicans in the process.
You remind me of the European Union
politicians who were so convinced the United Kingdom would never exit that
conglomeration of arrogance and who, as of late night reports on June 23rd,
were “stunned” by the results.
Why were they stunned? The polls
said the outcome would go the other way... that the Brits would vote to remain
in the EU. Everyone they talked with said the same. There are two reasons
everyone was so wrong about the outcome of this vote:
1. They have yet to figure out that
the people with whom they socialize and do business (from lobbyists to the
highly affluent – both of which make large political contributions) are out of
touch with the real world as viewed by the majority of voters. Like EU politicians,
American politicians have no understanding of the attitudes, likes, dislikes,
fears and dreams of the majority of people who support nationalism rather than
The Brits got tired of paying $20
billion every year to the EU and receiving only $10 billion back in benefits. I
don’t want to point out the obvious, but American taxpayers sympathize with
that concept which amounts to nothing more than a socialist redistribution of
wealth. Like the Brits, we are tired of being told Islam is a religion of peace
when the behavior of Muslims and the Koran tell us otherwise. All of us are
wearied by your political lies.
In America, the successful campaigns
of Senator Bernie Sanders and Donald J. Trump should have set off bells and
whistles but your heads are so deeply buried in the sand of your perceived
political power that you ignored these two huge warnings. You might want to ask
soon-to-be-former Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom just how
fleeting power can be when elected officials forget who really holds the power.
2. You have used political
correctness to manipulate social behavior in America, just as the European
Union does. It is a brilliant idea because nothing removes truth from public
discourse better or faster than a society dominated by political correctness,
especially when you get to define what is politically correct and what is not.
You who sit in Washington, D.C. and
the Europeans who sit in Brussels dictate to the people how they will do
business, what will be taught in their schools, who will immigrate to their
countries (legally and illegally), who gets medical care and who does not, and
on and on – and none of you are in touch with the people who must live with
your misbegotten, power-driven tyranny. You remember the people? They are the ones
who pay your salaries. They are aware that you are implementing unlawful programs to
attain your objective of one world government, a government in which you
perceive yourselves as holding power.
Unfortunately, you (and the EU) overlooked the
backlash that results from political correctness. When people are beaten over
the head time and time again – are told that the opinions they honestly hold
are socially unacceptable – they stop proclaiming those opinions publicly. When
asked if they are going to vote for this person or that, or if they support
this issue or that, they give the politically correct answer and then do what
they want. It is less trouble when you tell people who hold political power
what they want to hear rather than what you really think. Who likes being
viewed as a conspiracy nut? Perhaps better said, who wants to be targeted by
the IRS because they answered a polling question honestly? But when they vote,
they do so in secret and no one knows just how politically incorrect their ballot
may proclaim them to be.
The majority of political
establishment liars (that would be you and the others who withhold support from
the Republican nominee) say “This is the right way to do things” and people who
should be free to do business as they choose (so long as it is done lawfully
and honestly) are put out of business by your fines and demands of them to do
things based on your definition of what is politically correct (definitions
which solidify your power base and diminish theirs).
In short, the behavior of
politicians in Brussels and Washington, D.C. is tyrannical. When people go into
the voting booth, however, they throw political correctness to the wind, recall
your tyranny, and vote their conscience. It is equally true that some vote
their lack of conscience.
Most people care little whether
their attitude toward supporting illegal immigrants is politically correct.
They have watched their parents work hard, contribute to the system, and save
money for retirement only to learn Social Security funds are being used to pay
illegal immigrants and give free medical care to illegals and those who choose
not to work. Their reaction is “Screw what Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell and
their lap dog politicians say is right or wrong. I know the difference and they
By withholding support from Donald
J. Trump as the preferred (by the people) candidate of the Republican Party to
run for the Presidency, you weaken the chance for the Republican Party to win
the November election – and you know that. Your behavior gives support to
Hillary Rodham Clinton. We know you fear you will lose votes in Wisconsin,
Congressman Ryan. And Senator McConnell you were barely re-elected in Kentucky.
But guess what? This election is about the people and what they want. It is not
Why do Republicans behave this way
over the Donald Trump nomination?
There is only one logical answer:
Donald Trump is a threat to your power base... a power base the people have
come to realize is totally corrupt. Let’s be very clear. When you willingly
abandon the majority of people who consider themselves Republicans to
surreptitiously support a woman whose history proves – PROVES, not indicates or
suggests, PROVES – her to be a threat to the security of America, you prove
yourself to be unworthy of holding office. Again, I suggest you re-listen to
David Cameron’s resignation speech and use it as a reference.
If you think the American people are
too dumb to figure this out, you might want to re-think who is dumb and who is
not. We understand that you have dumbed the people down, removing strategic
thinking from the education system making it difficult for them to use logic.
We also understand, however, that most Americans are decent people with
consciences that eventually tell them that evil is being perpetrated on them.
They react as one expects of people of conscience. They vote against staying in
the European Union... or they reject those who removed from them their
opportunity for meaningful change.
I know not how others feel about
your behavior, but as for me, I consider you beneath the lowest of the low
throughout the history of American politics.
Perhaps we should rename you Paul
Benedict and Mitch Arnold.
Part II of this article lists for
you the accomplishments of the political candidate to whom you appear to
surreptitiously give your support: Hillary Rodham Clinton. I want the people to
know the kind of person you support for the highest office in the land. It is a
testament to your character – rather, the lack thereof.
As you ponder the qualities of the
person you support so you can maintain your corrupted power base, please let me
know if you need a copy of the Constitution – or a copy of the Oath of Office
you took to support that Constitution before being allowed to represent the
people of your states. As I recall that Oath, you promised to defend America
from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
It appears that you and those who
oppose the preference of the people may be that domestic threat. I offer no
sympathy for the horns of a dilemma on which you have placed yourselves.
Part two coming soon.
