With no clear path to the 2016 Republican Presidential nomination, many have chosen to express their disdain publicly not just for Donald John Trump but the process in which their hands were soiled. The reticence of Presidents George W. Bush or his father George H. W. Bush along with their kinsman Jeb Bush and Paul Ryan with Mitt Romney and others who helped design the process but now won’t support the presumptive nominee, simply stinks. Trump was hammered during the debates about supporting the nominee for the party. Though at times all over the place, he did eventually pledge to support the nominee. So did the others who now want to renege on their pledges and rules which have their fingerprints everywhere.
In the North Carolina State Republican Convention, it was clear that the Ted Cruz people had out organized those of “the Donald.” As the chairman from that convention noted, out voiced does not mean one has the majority. Out worked or out maneuvering the person with the most votes in that state’s party election policies on delegate selection and representation did not convey a right to go against the Presidential Primary Vote.
Too many old guard Republicans, as well as a new generation bent on gaining control, are like the kid with the ball and bat who is willing to stop the game and take their equipment home if they can’t play on their own terms. We are becoming blind to a changing world which pits traditional biblical values against those of a secular society which is in the minds of some is going to hell in a hurry.
When one sees a socialist gaining traction following the path of failed systems of European government or a candidate who ought to be in jail for national security violations or one who wasn’t born in this country but would stifle the 14th Amendment for others here legally, it may just be time to listen to the billionaire who appeals to the “Blue Collar” masses who aren’t realizing the American Dream and are falling further behind in most economic indices while the uber industrialist operate beyond the reach of home nations providing a base and groundwork for a new world order.
Republicans aren’t looking at the clock which shows this may be the last chance for the Baby Boomer generation to exert its clout. Demography shows that the hip-hop generation, millennials and future children will face a vastly different world than we had. There is no turning away from the fact that we don’t share many of their same personal values. Learning to find our connections is like wandering in the wilderness until we have purified ourselves. We can leave a guide for them in a country founded on an unbelievable US Constitution which has stood the test of time.
Trump’s ground game is redefining political campaigns becoming heavy on rallies and great television coverage. Those without an internet link may be left out of the game unless we figure a better way to keep more connected.
Many have tried to paint Donald John Trump, the non-drinking, non-smoking, thrice married man as unChristian and a lot of other things they likely are not called to judge. In studying great characters in the Torah and Bible one must be impressed that G-d often calls imperfect men, such as Moses or King David, to lead the people and raise a nation.
With his mass appeal, one can foresee a Trump victory with or without the full support of the Republican Party. It isn’t just about Party Unity but USA Unity to make the country work to serve her people and be Great Again.
