I am sick at the thought trump will be the republican nominee for President. I see several scenarios playing out:
he is elected President. Our country will face civil war. Then a NAZI type government. Why you ask? The democrats won’t believe our country go fascist and won’t react fast enough to save our country;
The above scenario obtains and our armed forces have a psychotic break and either end up co-oped by the new government, destroying itself in a civil war, or just goes catatonic.
It is my opinion the conservatives will do as they have been doing and vote against their own interests. It will get worse. The tea party is filled with xenophobes, folks who are afraid of the time soon when they loose their effective majority at the ballot box. Folks who appear to be Wallacites(sic)and are scared of the same thing. I am Rockefeller Republican(fiscally conservative and liberal on social issues). We were chased out of the party by the then followers of Senator Goldwater. We are now the center of the voting public(a little right-a little left) and as such we appear to have the power to tilt to the right or to the left. If only we would use it for the good of the country.
I mean a citizen who knows the precepts, the Bill of Rights, and is aware of their prejudice(against THEM) and struggles to be a Citizen who is educated(believes in our Country’s foundation, our constitution), the Bill of Rights, and the various laws that implement them.
I wrote the above last night, 12/31/2015. I just cannot express it well. I tried. The anger and visceral hatred I see in Their faces and mob voice against all of us(other then Themselves) scares the shit out of me. Why you ask, “center of the electorate-to Progressive” will move to save “our” U.S.A. too late. They(tea party to center) will not listen to any voice, but their own, and will vote against their own self interests.
I hope a voice in our elections this year comes to the fore that thetea party and their followers will listen to.
I am well aware of Senator Cruz. I will be blogging on him next time
I wish you all a Happy New Year.
