GOP Establishment vs. "We the people"

Written by

We the people own America! We the people define the GOP (as well as the other political parties)! We the people, not some party elites, choose the GOP nominee for the President - We, with our votes, are choosing Donald Trump!

Unfortunately, the GOP establishment does not seem to understand this basic "we the people" principle! Ignoring the will of the people, it has secretly chosen its preferred candidate(s), while viciously attacking Donald Trump, spear-headed by a hit man named Mitt Romney (Transcript of Mitt Romney's Speech on Donald Trump)!

What, then, is the GOP establishment?

1. GOP establishment

By the "GOP establishment", I mean those who are currently very influential in the GOP. The image below shows eight of them.

Let me highlight them one by one, largely in the context of Trump and his campaign.

  1. Mitt Romney: He made a big mistake by giving the anti-Trump speech! For more, read: Presidential Candidates: Mitt Romney vs. Donald Trump.
  2. Paul Ryan: He was the man behind Romney's speech. For more, read: Revealed: Here's The One Person Mitt Romney Met With Right Before Giving Speech Slamming Trump. Why is he so afraid of Trump? Here is an example: Trump Threatens Paul Ryan, Says Speaker Will Pay 'Big Price' if He Gets in His Way.
  3. Mitch McConnell: Why is Congress's approval rating so abysmal at 15%? He is one of the main reasons! For more, watch this short video: Mitch McConnell: Top Priority, Make Obama a One Term President.
  4. John McCain: Trump slams McCain for being 'captured' in Vietnam. The GOP should expel McCain, a reckless war-hawk, in order to have any chance for the Presidency in 2016! For more, read my book: The GOP Bible for 2016.
  5. Jeb Bush: This "low-energy" guy, as labelled by Trump, should have listened to his Mom: Barbara Bush on Son Jeb in 2016: 'We've Had Enough Bushes'.
  6. George W. Bush: Donald Trump Accuses George W. Bush Of Lying to Invade Iraq. That was an understatement! I believe President Bush launched the Iraq War in 2003, at least partially, for the sake of his 2004 re-election! For more, read: 9/11 Attack vs. Pearl Harbor Attack.
  7. Marco Rubio: This "little guy", as labelled by Trump, is Obama II, a first-term U.S. Senator without any accomplishments, but is trying to simply talk his way into the White House.
  8. Lindsey Graham: Another reckless war-hawk like John McCain!

Very notably, most of them are proven losers in Presidential races!

Still wondering why the GOP has been the party of "nothing" over the past decade, at least? Wonder not - It's brain-dead! For more, read: What Is the GOP, Anyway?

Now, here comes Donald Trump, who has offered the best hope for the GOP to capture the American Presidency again, perhaps for the last time! Yet, the GOP establishment has come out big trying to stop Trump. Why?

2. Trump's 2016 campaign

Trump has been running an extra-ordinary campaign with extra-ordinary results. At this pace, Trump will inevitably become the GOP nominee - Nobody, not even the GOP establishment, can stop it! Why not? Because we the people have spoken!

"The will of the people must not be trampled upon!"

Trump's campaign is a revolutionary movement, which has not only created great excitement among the GOP voters, but also significantly expanded the GOP tent, attracting many independents and even some Democrats! For more, read: Presidential Candidates: Mitt Romney vs. Donald Trump.

Let me say a few words about the other three candidates:

  1. John Kasich: You are still my favorite. But there is simply no path forward to the Presidency for you. So instead of wasting my vote, I cast it for Trump yesterday in Illinois (by early vote).
  2. Marc Rubio: It’s time to get out, or your career may be ruined! You have been used by the GOP establishment as a tool to stop Trump!
  3. Ted Cruz: You are following the footsteps of Rick Santorum 2012, with no hope nationally!

In short, Trump is the man!

3. My five strong messages to GOP establishment

  1. We the people, not some party elites, define the GOP!
  2. Who has done most damage to the GOP in recent history? George W. Bush (thanks to the Iraq War)! Any doubt? He, as a former President, has yet to be invited to any of the GOP conventions (in 2008 and 2012)! Why is that? He is an absolute liability for the GOP! For the same reason, I bet he will not be invited to the GOP convention this year, either!
  3. There are simply no longer enough Republicans, let alone conservatives, left in America, in order for the GOP to win the Presidency! Therefore, the GOP must expand its tent to attract more independents and even some moderate Democrats. Yes, in this sense, Trump is the best thing happened to the GOP over the past decade, at least!
  4. No conservative is real unless s/he is fiscally conservative, which means denouncing Democratic Imperialism. Specifically, we must significantly cut military spending! Why? Because our military is for offense (not defense), for the MIC (Military-Industrial Complex), and against America (as war and debt go hand in hand)! For more, watch this video: Eisenhower warns us of military-industrial complex.
  5. Stop trying to stop Trump! It not only violates The Eleventh Commandment (shown below), but also would prove to be futile, thus a huge disaster for the GOP!

4. Discussion

Many GOP leaders try to stop Trump in the name of saving the GOP or even saving America. But the truth is that they are just trying to save themselves, especially for those career politicians!

It is right for the GOP establishment to undermine the voters again, as it has been doing so for years! However, it is wrong to think it may again get away with it! Why? Because it is going too far this time, fueling the fires already burning throughout the country!

Here is a simple fact: between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, the anti-GOP-establishment votes mount to some 75%! So, What Is The GOP, Anyway?

No, money does not even matter this time! Any doubt? Ask Jeb!

Once again, "the will of the people must not be trampled upon!"

More broadly, democracy, by definition, is doomed to fail.

Throughout human history, there has not been a single example of democracy with lasting success. As a matter of fact, democracy is failing in America for the same reason as it has failed in Greece, ancient or modern: debt!

Will America be the sole exception to human history? Perhaps not! For now, our best hope to save American democracy, as well as America, rests on Donald Trump!

5. Closing

The anti-Trump campaign orchestrated by the GOP establishment just shows how clueless it is about America and American democracy! It is bound to fail, because it is going against "we the people"!
