Categorically A Progressive Cannot Earn the Conservative Nomination !


Being a Republican and a conservative is a moral qualification for earning the Republican nomination.



Ever since Trump entertainment Industries entered the Republican primaries, the media has been talking about the Trump candidacy as a done deal as if conducting psychological warfare by intentional design. In fact the delegates have not voted yet and in truth qualifications for earning the conservative party nomination should have a required measure of conservatism. Recently Mr Trump said that America should just have a "great president" and it doesn't matter whether the president is Democrat or Republican, which begs the question, if that is the way Mr Trump feels , why isn't he running as an Independent? To Republicans and conservatives it does make a difference and so one must ask how can one earn the Republican nomination when one is, by self admittance neither a conservative nor a Republican? Shouldn't "earning the Republican nomination" have something to do with actually being a Republican? 

 The Republican party is a private organization which has long been the party of conservatism in the USA. Just as a public company has an obligation to its stockholders to make a profit , a private organization has an obligation to its private supporters to uphold the values and the philosophy for which that support is granted. When Trump entered the race he snapped up the antiestablishmentarain base so effectively that it couldn't have been done better if it were planned in advance. In just about a nano second the mainstay of the antiestablishmentarian media dropped Ted Cruz as their favorite son and all together embraced Trump. 

 Anyone in the marketing industry can identify a ready made political base like the antiestablishmentarians. Any one who has ever engaged in a conversation with half a dozen antiestablismentarians knows exactly how an argument with any antiestablishmentarian on any particular subject will unfold . The talking points are predictably consistent across the entire populous of antiestablishmentarians. Any one knowing the talking points can design a political platform tailor made to the specs of antiestablishmentarianism but let it be said that a fundamental characteristic of this political base is that there was within it massive support for Libertarian candidate Ron Paul in the 2012 election. 

 Ron Paul is a self identified Libertarian so what was Ron Paul doing running in the Republican party primary and why did the leaders of the Republican party allow Mr Paul to do so? Republicans and Libertarians are much closer on many issues than Republicans and Democrats but they part ways on national defense. The most important role of the President of the United States is Commander in Chief and so the policy difference between Libertarians and Republicans is no small matter. In the 2012 Republican primaries, Ron Paul delivered a speech in which he dismissed the Iran threat as a foolish and made up fantasy. Mr Paul announced that there is no Iran threat to the United Sates and western civilization. When Mr Paul was not allowed to deliver a speech during the Republican convention in which Mitt Romney was nominated, the antiestablishmentarians were outraged , so much so, that from that day forward they conducted a massive campaign against Mitt Romney. They came up with the meme that Romney is exactly the same as Obama. The only rational to which I can attribute such an idea is RomneyCare, which is a state health care program. Romney campaigned on the promise that he would repeal ObamaCare . This was insignificant to the antiestablishmentarians,. What mattered was that Romney supported a state health care program when he was Governor of a blue state. 

 The antiestablishmentarians campaigned aggressively against Romney and once Obama was re-elected the antiestablishmentarians blamed everything that Obama did or that couldn't be done under an Obama administration on the Republicans. For four years meme after meme after meme streamed across our social media walls deeming with little evidence that the entire establishment is corrupt- especially the Republicans, the targeted party for what was at core a progressive movement's design to take over from that party from within.

The antiestablishmentarians didn't call them selves the antiestablishmentarians of course. they called them selves the "true conservatives'. Donald Trump is now the current favorite of the antiestablishmentarians. Trump advocates for federalized universal health care , which is no longer a major concern among that faction which not too long ago identified themselves as the true conservatives and deemed the entire Republican establishment to be RINOS, never considering that it should be the Republican party which defines a Republican and not the antiestablishmentarian party. 

 It is the job of the delegates to nominate a candidate who represents Republican values and who is electable. Those are the rules. The Republican party is a private organization and they can make their own rules in the USA. When the nomination process moves to convention it moves from a process dominated by the antiestablishment party to a process dominated by the Republican party- the real Republican party- the gatekeepers of conservatism. Although most delegates are bound to the people's choice in the first round . I have heard that they are not bound to vote.- that they can abstain. from voting. 

 And so whether or not the progressive candidate Mr Trump gets his number of delegates it should be an interesting shift in power when we get to the convention. The delegates have a serious responsibility to uphold the conservative political philosophy, which is a small government philosophy. When Mr Trump came out in support of federalized universal health care, he said in his own words that he knows it is not a Republican policy. Not only is it not a Republican policy but repealing federalized universal health care was one of the biggest issues of the 2012 elections. What happened?

 Republicans and conservatives ! It's time to take back our party! When it is said that Mr Trump has brought millions of new Republicans into the party, those are not real Republicans, they are Republicans in name brought in just to vote for Mr Trump who often talks about "his people". Mr Trump brought his people into the Republican primaries. The end game of the Trump candidacy is to wipe conservatism off the ticket all together. The delegates do not have a duty to help Mr Trump to achieve his end game and it doesn't matter that the rinobots supporting Trump will be angry. They will be angry at Republicans for anything Republicans do except executing a suicide mission to the drum beat of the antiestablishmentarian rhetoric. It doesn't matter! What matters is keeping conservatism alive and very very well! We can do this!

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory .

Its Not the Economy, Its the Culture!

Trump has brought into focus a long brewing social crisis SELECTED FOR THE BEST OF TREMR darren-deloach-unsplash I was a Republican, until the 2016 convention when a petition gathered enough signatures to let delegates vote their conscience, and was promptly dismissed by a voice vote.  That was when I first became aware that the Republican party was afraid, intimidated and dominated by the Trump base. I felt the party took the traditional base of the party, which included myself, for granted, as if we were party players, guaranteed to support the party, unquestionably, no matter where it went. Deeply ro o ted party obedience has been established. Many whom I once respected and are no longer recognizable. Those of us who did not follow the leaders no longer have a place in the Republican party and have largely become Independents. I voted straight blue in the last election, but consider myself Independent. There is no reason to believe that either one party or the other will continue to
