This is Donald Trump’s Election to Lose

Donald_Trump_by_Gage_Skidmore_2-701x467Donald Trump made a horrible misstep when he diluted his position on deporting illegal aliens.  It’s been one of the primary reasons that he’s been as successful as he has as a first-time candidate.  He seems to have corrected course (mostly), but he’s done his brand some lasting damage.  I don’t believe that he can withstand making that mistake again.  No matter what the media and the two political parties tell you, this election is all about the specific issues that Donald Trump has put forward — it’s not about the likability or popularity of either candidate.

Demand an Open Convention or Lose the Election

Bernie and HillaryMany people on my side of the aisle are celebrating the release of Democratic National Committee emails that show that they were in the bag for Hillary Clinton all along.  This is unsurprising to anyone who pays attention to politics.  It’s been the disgust with the corrupt ruling elite that has fueled the candidacies of both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.   The emails confirm that both of these candidates were completely correct – the system was rigged against them.  Trump was adept enough to decimate a field of 16 candidates, despite the wishes of his party’s ruling elite.  Sanders was not as fortunate — and that is partially his own fault.

Trump vs. Hillary and the Global Elite

For years, the two-party system has been failing the American electorate.  On one side, we have the Democratic Party who’s packaged itself as the party of the people.  They claim to be for higher taxes on rich people and greater benefits and services for everyone else.  They’ve been the natural home for progressives, socialists, communists, and leftists of every stripe.  They call for greater government powers, more regulation, and bigger budgets.

Why This Conservative is Voting for Bernie Sanders

Bernie surprisedI have been an enthusiastic supporter of Ted Cruz and Rand Paul for years now.  They have both proven themselves to be principled conservatives rather than tools of the Party establishment.  I started off this election season as a fierce Cruz supporter and dreamed of a Cruz/Paul victory ticket in November.  But then Donald Trump showed us that a populist could break the accepted rules and knock the presumed nominee out of the race.  He electrified the race in ways that we hadn’t seen on the Republican side in decades.

The Bloomberg Gambit

Mike BloombergPolitical opportunism is nothing new to billionaire Michael Bloomberg.  As a life-long Democrat, he had no problem with switching political parties in 2001 to ride Rudy Giuliani’s Republican coattails and win the mayoralty of the city of New York.  It didn’t take long for him to show his liberal, big-government, nanny state proclivities.

Bernie Sanders Just Gave Up

screen_shot_20151015_at_2.49.19_pm.png.CROP.promovar-mediumlarge.49.19_pmTuesday’s Democratic debate was nowhere near as compelling as either of the two Republican debates, but it was eventful because the front runner wasn’t knocked from her position.   Hillary Clinton made it through unscathed, and she’s the automatic winner as nobody scored any political points at her expense.  That’s the way things work in primary debates and boxing.  You need to knock the champ out to be declared the winner.

Is Hillary Above the Law?

hillary_rays1We are a nation of laws, not men.  When there are legitimate suspicions regarding illegality or impropriety at the highest levels of government, we have mechanisms in place to ensure at least an appearance of objectivity during an investigation.  One of these would be the Attorney General referring matters to the the Office of Special Counsel.  Appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate Executive Branch officials shields the Administration from accusations of a cover-up.  Why hasn’t this occurred in the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her use of a private email system and server during her tenure at the State Department?

Hillary Has Been Played

Hillary What DifferenceFor quite some time our politicians have gotten away with lying directly to the American people.  President Obama said that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” when attempting to sell us on Obamacare.  That wasn’t exactly true.  George W. Bush said that we shouldn’t engage in “nation building,” and yet that was the core strategy he utilized while waging war after 9/11.  Bill Clinton lied to us so often that Democrats started bragging about what a great liar he was.  Hillary Clinton has also been lying to us, and we’ve known it all along.
