It remains routinely necessary to address “the evil ones,” to call them out. Even those who regularly read davedelany.com forget that the rank and file of our electorate are mostly followers of an ideology they think they prefer, almost entirely Republicans or Democrats. Our people are largely distinct from the corruption that drives our political elite. Voters are victims, bullied and bludgeoned into exactly two distinct camps.
We, the People, refuse to listen to each other. The elite rejoice in that.
I am often assailed for “being Republican.” By what standard? I did not vote for Romney, McCain, or Bush, Sr., and only the second time for Junior — as a show of solidarity in light of violence from radical Islam. I barely overcame the nausea while voting for the NY boor, but Hillary was so obviously and blatantly corrupt it was impossible not to do so. Like so many other Americans, I am now very pleased with my choice. Can you imagine if she won?
Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell remain pointless memories of failed principle and leadership, probable corruption, and proof positive of disdain for the American people from the so-called Right. Am I, therefore, Democrat?
Hell, no. It remains impossible to sustain anything like free or happy society on stolen wealth and concentrated power. That notion now pervades both the Democrats and Republicans, but it is the actual platform of the Democrat Party.
It is the unified Deeper Than That Party that reflects a dishonest agenda — blatant lies — from the Republicans and Democrats alike. The Republican Party has no interest in the Law of the Land limitations prescribed by the Constitution, and the Democrat Party has no interest in democracy in its pursuit of eliminating competition.
I believe in our Republic, dictated by our U.S. Constitution alone, administered minimally at the national level, semi-autonomously at the 50 State’s level, and mostly by the citizens themselves. It is therefore appropriate to believe in the principles of democracy as they apply to aspects of election, legislation, and certain decision-making administrative choices. That is the very idea of a democratic-republic.
It is no secret that the very best of Donald Trump is the contempt he receives from the Democrats, the Republicans, the Press, the Deep State, and his diligence in accomplishing exactly what he campaigned to do.
Accused of Russian collusion by Democrats conspiring with a British national to generate false charges; charged also with racism and Nazi sympathies by Democrats who despise Israel and Jews; silenced in repealing our socialized health care plan by Republicans who ran on a platform of repealing that plan; damned as a war-monger by tea leaf readers on both sides; only able to win several of his early battles by enlisting the help of one Democrat Senator while being stabbed by one or two Republicans; and legislatively thwarted on almost everything since . . . What does that make Donald Trump, if not seriously independent?
Bill Kristol and Charles Krauthammer hate Trump as much as Democrats at the Washington Post or LA Times, and a very large handful of Republican Senators and Congress Critters (not to mention the entire Bush clan) openly despise him. We, the People, stand alone with Donald Trump.
If Trump wins reelection, it will be the most grassroots support campaign in history, and a buck against every lie, corrupt Party and politician, press pundit, pollster, and every Demoblican Republicrat in the world. He should win. We are not “them.”
“They” are the corrupt and contemptible two-Party Top Dogs and career politicians who hate Trump almost as much as they hate the USA. “They” come from both sides — Republican and Democrat — yet they are neither republican nor democratic.
