Twofer on election challenges

May as well just throw a couple articles out there. The first one is a dripping post from Red State railing against Trump as the nominee. If you have time and energy, I recommend seeing both of them. Who knows, you might enjoy.

As we are seeing unfold, people are imagining any means possible to deny or stop Trump. One Representative even said on a radio show that the only way to stop Donald Trump is a “head shot”. Well, desperation calls for desperate measures.

Now along comes the third party challenge. They believe they can Perot him. The second article (here) floats the idea of running or using Rick Perry to defeat Trump on a 3rd party challenge, even ending in a decision by the House of Representatives. I have a feeling the people would be really satisfied with that one.

I mean if the Chaos in Cleveland was not bad enough, why not open the general election decision to the House of Representatives to really calm people’s fears and restore confidence? We still haven’t lived down Bush vs. Gore. If they think that process would work, and Hillary wouldn’t find some way to benefit from it, then maybe they ought to take her and Democrats more seriously.

The media attention shifted its collective attention to Trump’s words that depriving him the nomination could potentially cause riots at the convention. How many times do people use such speech to serve a useful purpose? Not here. They are having fun spinning that one. While at the same time another Democrat front group is threatening mass protests and civil disobedience in DC. Nothing is wrong with that and no one seems at all concerned about what that will cause. Translation: riot to “save our Democracy” sounds like an interesting concept. Call it “Democracy Spring.”

Drop out and turn on. (Remember that was an old sixties cliche) Once again, people are threatening never trump and no way will they support him. Not voting would even be justified. Well, we were chastised that we had to support the last 2 establishment picks for president. Now their own righteous establishment position is “no way” will they vote for Trump. They point to how many people are unsatisfied with Trump as the nominee. Never mind how many people were not satisfied with McCain or Romney. But now the noble position is Never Trump. What hypocritical bastards.

Lastly, it looks like anything will be fundraising fodder, from Move On and the Left to the RNC estabos. And just blame Trump for the whole mess. Sound like a plan? Sort of puts them all on the same page.

Two’s company… Three’s a Party

Majority of Americans Support Creating a Third Party

Heather Ginsberg | Oct 13, 2013 |Townhall

With the recent government shutdown it’s no surprise that many Americans are dissatisfied with the government. But in a recent poll from Gallup, it seems clear that the disapproval has reached a new level.

It is well known that the American government is based in a two-party system, but it now it looks like many are not so sure that is the best way to go. 60 percent of Americans now say they would support the formation of the third party. Democrats and Republicans are no longer cutting it. Since Gallup began asking this question 10 years ago, this is the highest percentage they have measured. Only 26 percent believe the two major parties are accurately representing their constituents.

Since the shutdown began we saw a rise in negative opinions of the parties, so it is no surprise that when given the option of a third party, many Americans are willing to look into that option. And this is not even a party specific finding. Both Democrats and Republicans are equally likely to see a third party as a good alternative; however, independents are much more likely to think a third party is necessary.

Clearly the dissatisfaction over the government shutdown is affecting several different areas of the American political spectrum. Perhaps this would be a good choice in order to avoid this kind of situation happening again in the future.

Those numbers an attitudes speak loud and clear, for themselves.
