After months of deliberating and looking at candidates, I whittled down on my options to one. I thought I had a second choice but alas that was just an illusion.
So I decided on Trump. Since people already criticized and attacked me for supporting Trump, I suppose I might as well. Kidding aside, I tried all along keeping an open mind. In the end, I decided Donald Trump gets my vote. Unlike other people, I won’t hate on those supporting another candidate. It’s their choice.
First, it was not about popularity or favorites. I often support underdogs. In this strange case, Trump is a little like an underdog.(in some ways) He is not the favorite of the establishment. In fact, he is about the least favorite.
But there was a purpose and an objective. It was a 75-25 decision. I was already 75% behind Trump before. Then events of the last few weeks put me over the line. What a few weeks it has been for the panic-stricken arrogant elite. Plus the media has been casting its vote all along. That all made it easier. So there’s a hashtag NeverTrump making the rounds. But my hashtag would be not again. So I settled on Trump.
Reasons for my choice were broad. Enough is enough. Well, it has been enough for a while but this was the opportunity to voice it and do something different that hadn’t been done. Every election they tell us who our choices are and ram their establishment choices down our throats. We’re told we just have to accept it. Well, this is a bit of irony.
Some say he is not the best choice. I say he is not perfect. No candidate seems to be -particularly these three. But this offers more than a usual choice between two evils. This choice goes back a long way with me. In fact, back to 2000. That’s where Cruz took it, too. He brought John Roberts into the Bush vs. Gore battle. The rest is history, punctuated by Cruz’s advocacy for Roberts as a SCOTUS pick. He’s complaining about him?
Now that we are to decide who the outsider insurgent is, between three, the other two candidates have taken to the air to raise every suspicion possible. The roles reversed and Rubio is channeling Trump. Cruz pulls out every accusation he can dream up.However, it is not just them. The RNC and every operator within the establishment has been scheming to oust the Trumpster. Who’d have thunk something would cause such a stir in the establishment? Venom and tempers flare.
Romney, probably the king of the establishment, came out to personally launch an attack and whisper campaign against Trump. He was shopping for surrogates to do the dirty deed and then decided he would do it himself. Rubio contacted Christie after he dropped out, also after the smack down debate attack. Rubio boasted to Christie that he has a very bright future ahead. (you thought the Donald was the one with the over inflated ego)
Then Christie endorsed Trump, attacking Rubio in his speech as not ready for prime time. Cruz is too slimy for prime time. The RNC flung itself into the toilet threatening to flush itself down over Donald Trump. (hint: it might take a double flush, Reince)
The establishment had a meeting, according to NYT, to brainstorm how to take Trump down. They fear Trump threatens the Party(as they know it) and could cost them Congress and the election. Camp Rubio is making plans for a brokered convention scenario. Mitch McConnel is planning a Senate coup to abandon Trump.
At least one report says RNC has people strategizing some independent run. Kasich and other candidates are hypothesizing parsed out spoils of a post Trump era. They all complain about why more or somethimg wasn’t done to stop Trump much earlier? I thought they had tried. (everything they could think of) If these guys are this baffled over fighting off Trump, how can they deal with Hillary?
Little does this Party establishment elite realize their real fight is with the people, base, and conservatives. The more they dig in the more obvious it becomes.
Establishment RNC are boldly trying to connive a candidate ‘choice’ for the Party. Gee, you thought that’s what elections were for? So did I. It just reveals the true character of the RNC and estabo elite and how far they will go. It’s like gang turf war to them.
So in view of all this I made my decision. This all made that easier.
In the end, it’s Trump. Or is it Trump till the end?
