What Every 'No Trumper' MUST Know Before Voting
Joseph M Bianchi
|There is a certain adulation that goes along with smug moralism.
The recipients of such adulation feel a certain pride in that they are somehow
above everyone else, looking down from their perch from on high—better than
all of us here on the pavement below.
Such is the case with the “Never Trumper” crowd; they turn their nose up at what they see as the unwashed masses—read: rank and file conservatives—with a combination of anger and contempt. “How could they vote for such a man?” they bellow, “He is so crude, insulting—and lacks the credentials of a true head of state!”
Their ranting exclude the fact that their arch rival, Hillary Clinton, has an agenda that is not only, to the conservative cause, disastrous, but they can be surer of her success of implementing her policies if elected, then Trump who, as a political amateur, may falter when push comes to shove.
For the conservative voter who is between the political rock and the left-wing hard place, the bottom line is this: they cannot be exactly sure what Trump will or can do if elected, but they certainly can be sure of what Hillary will do!
For the “Never Trumper” the fundamental issue is principle; sticking to your conservative beliefs no matter what the options. For them, Trump does not fit the bill. They will tell you that he has just recently become a Republican, and that his conservative credentials are weak, at best. On major issues like abortion and LGBTQ rights he seems to shift at times like a sandcastle in the wind.
However, the sobering fact is that one certainly can know where Hillary Clinton stands: Abortion just about at any time; from conception until the third trimester. An increase in the legitimization of the gay lifestyle, with no holds barred. A Globalist approach to foreign policy that will see the US engaged in more military adventures—and who knows how the Clinton Foundation, which is now being investigated by the IRS, will attach itself to her tenure in the White House?
Above and beyond all of this, the “Never Trumper” crowd must confront one large issue that has devastating implications: SCOTUS. The next President of the United States will most likely seat at least two Supreme Court Justices. Justices serve until they die. There is no doubt that Hillary will nominate far-left, law-creating judges to this bench. Thus, SCOTUS will be radicalized for an entire generation. Are “Never Trumpers” prepared for this? Are they still willing to stick their chests out and their noses up and “stick to principle”?
It has become a cliché to say that electing Hillary will be like another four years of Obama. This is to side step reality. No, it will not. It will be the end of the USA as we know it.
While many will say that Hillary is really a centrist with a radical left mask on, the fact remains that she will seek to satisfy her radical puppeteers, whether she believes in their cause or not. This is a political animal with no loyalties, except to her own cause: power—and lots of it.
Her foreign policy as President? We can only look at the track record. She voted for the Iraq war (as did many Republicans). A complete disaster that destabilized the Middle East and lead to the further advance of Islamic terror. She gloated over Gaddafi’s death, although this was a tyrant who knew he was beat and was cooperating with the west. Result: chaos in Libya. Then there was the Benghazi affair. Let us remind ourselves that an American ambassador was killed on her watch. ‘Nuff said?
Under a Clinton presidency, more illegal, un-vetted immigrants will be brought into the country during an unprecedented period of world terrorism. They will be greeted with open arms by liberals who see every illegal as a possible Democrat voter.
If the “Never Trumper” crowd is so concerned about the moral climate in our country, will they stop and consider what our country will be like after four or, perish the thought, eight years of Hillary? If they think they cannot recognize it now, just wait.
There is, to be sure, a certain attraction—even romance—about voting for a third party candidate. One supposes that many sentient, thinking voters have toyed with the idea. Again, the cliché that this is “the most important election of our lifetime” certainly plays true here. It may feel good to come out of the voting booth having voted for a third party candidate, with your morals and your principles seemingly untarnished. But what will they tell their grandchildren when they are old enough to see the debris field created by their lack of awareness?
Then there will be those conservatives that will sit out the whole election. By default, they are surrendering their cause, although they will feel elated that, in their thinking, their hands are clean.
No, this is not an election where one must choose between “two evils.” The road map is pretty clear for the moral and fiscal conservative.
Donald Trump may not be your traditional conservative, but it is better to vote for one who at least expresses the elements of common sense conservative principles, than to allow a radical heat seeking missile to hit its target—to the detriment of an entire country.
