Once again, the GOP establishment has lost its direction. Once again, it is at odds with "We the People" (GOP Establishment vs. "We the people"), by going against Trump, the choice of the people!
Two recent examples:
Why is the GOP establishment so self-destructing? Let me answer the question by making three points:
Let me further elaborate on each ...
1. The pre-Trump GOP is dead!
Two main reasons:
In an advanced democracy like ours, the Democrats will win all elections over time, by attrition!
Therefore, it is critical for the GOP to periodically come up with some grand new ideas that will resonate with many swing voters. Unfortunately, the GOP has proven to be incapable of doing that over the past decade, at least!
Worse yet, the GOP has been seriously self-destructing, taking America down with it. Two significant examples:
1.2 The pre-Trump GOP has lost any chance for the American Presidency!
Thanks to the total destruction of the GOP by the George W. Bush Presidency, the past two GOP Presidential candidates (i.e. John McCain and Mitt Romney) had zero chance to win!
Many, if not most, Americans believe America is on the wrong track. But without the American Presidency, the GOP cannot change anything, let alone the direction! In other words, winning the American Presidency is not everything - It is the only thing!
2. Trump is the best thing that has happened to the GOP this century, at least!
Trump has been running a completely unorthodox campaign with extraordinary results. For example, Trump received more votes in the GOP primaries than all his predecessors, dramatically expanding the GOP tent!
Yes, many people voted for Trump, not for the GOP!
Yes, Trump is the last hope for the GOP! In other words, if Trump is circumvented, by the GOP establishment, from winning the American Presidency this time, the GOP may never win it again!
3. Trump is a very flawed candidate!
Trump is a very flawed candidate, but he is still far better than his opponent, Hillary Clinton, who is even more flawed and untrustworthy!
As the GOP nominee for President, Trump deserves the support of all Republicans, especially all the former 2016 GOP Presidential candidates who pledged to do so before they failed!
No, Trump is not even a Republican per se! Instead, he is a de facto Libertarian! But he is smart enough to run as a Republican.
Yes, Trump has hijacked the Republican Party and will further transform it for the better after he becomes the President! For more, read: Fixing the Military-Industrial Complex!
This election will define America for decades to come. Trump must win, with or without the GOP establishment! For more, read: What Would a Trump Presidency Look Like?
