Some have bemoaned Trump's presumptive nomination to be the Republican Party's death knell. Nope, sorry, that was sounded some time ago. Think John McCain, think Mitt Romney, think John Boehner. The GOP came down with a deadly illness in this century and I don't think it will recover.
The Democrats apparently have decided to be a progressive, socialist party now. I know, I know, an argument can be made for that having been true for a long, long time. I don't know, I don't consider myself to be an expert on politics. Perhaps I am simply becoming ever cynical as I get older.
I fear the type of world my grandchildren may have to face when they come of age.
A guy I have a great deal of respect for has made a pretty good case for Trump. The DiploMad has seen Shrillary and her flying monkeys up close and personal in his days at the State Department. She is no alternative at all. As to "the Donald," read a few of Lewis' recent posts starting here. He makes the man sound almost tolerable. Judge for yourself.
As to Shrillary, I am reminded of a quote attributed to Sir Winston Churchill...
"If Hitler invaded Hell I would make at least a favourable reference to the devil in the House of Commons."No, I'm not equating Shrillary to Hitler, though my distaste for that "lady" is close. As to Trump being the devil?
I just don't know. I do know that if Shrillary (or through some twisted circumstance Comrade Bernie if he manages to overcome the odds) is one choice, I shall make the other. I may be holding my nose while doing so, but a vote for an independent or (Heaven forfend, no vote at all) puts one squarely in the camp of the Shrillary and her flying monkeys.
Make a difference this Fall, though once again we here in these United States get to vote for the lesser of two evils. And remember what Captain Aubrey had to say on that subject...
