I have a few thoughts for Never Trumpers. Let’s just try a little logic. It’s pretty basic and simple. It is not exhaustive but take some highlights.
There are two scenarios. One is Trump wins, which leaves Never Trumpers gasping for air. The other is that Trump loses, which makes them complicit in the loss.
On its face you may think they are betting on Trump’s loss. Well, if he loses, then NTs will be a big factor in the cause of defeat. Sure they blame Trump but the reality is Dems have been using all the statements from these people for campaign ads. Often the worst critics of Trump have been these and establishment type people. So there is that blame.
Then if he wins, Never Trumpers are his greatest foe, they have a lot invested already.
Sooner or later there will be an end to this Never Trumperism. Even the Tea Parties had a shelf life. And what when the novelty wears off? They are reallly left out in the cold either way — either for being de facto Democrat operatives or being the stuck in the mud that do not or cannot get along with anyone.
If Hillary wins and Trump loses, the NTs bought the agenda. whether they actively voted for her or not. They did not stand up to stop her. They sat there as pundits in media and on shows as if the cat had their tongues, unwilling or afraid to form the simplest defense for Trump. They were useful Hillary pawns — dupes. And stopping her after a win will be almost impossible. Then there is the big question. Will they even actively work to stop her, being they did little to stop her from getting into office? Better to just do nothing.
Where does it all lead? I can’t tell you that .. but it is going to leave a mark.
