Trump and the GOP

“Cultural Marxism and its many variants, such as political correctness and multiculturalism, is now firmly ensconced in the White House and the Democrat Party, while the Republican Party, dominated by eunuchs and the avaricious, continuously accommodates its “principles” to match an ever-shifting leftward movement of the “conventional wisdom.” It does so solely to maintain its place as the token opposition and grifter at the federal tax-revenue trough for the personal financial benefits that it provides.

I’ve never seen a more perfect summation of the GOP’s “principles” or more accurately, lack thereof, principles — besides the following:

  1. Milking the donors.
  2. Filling as many public offices with fellow GOP trough-feeders as possible.
  3. Milking the rest of the population on behalf of themselves and their sponsors, using the tax-feeding officeholders.

Perhaps Rand Paul will follow in his father’s footsteps and be an exception to this. Possibly Ted Cruz, as well. As for the rest, they’re mere media-hounding streetwalker wannabes, such as Mr. Trump . . . .

I like Donald Trump in a half-hearted way. I like his macho no-nonsense response to those who try to pretend business is merely the handmaiden of politics. I like that he is aware of his own hard work to build his business and greatly increase the fortune his father bequeathed to him.

Except for his corporate bankruptcies, that is:

I like that he is proud of his success, neither meek or humble. But I don’t like what I consider a failing of many business people, a lack of grasp of fundamental principles.

Donald Trump’s guiding principle seems to be limited to one: Donald Trump.

Whatever keeps him in the limelight seems to be OK with him.

Until I see otherwise, I’ll consider his 2016 campaign to be prep work for another season of The Apprentice.

I fear that like Joe McCarthy, he will go overboard and kill his own best characteristics, making himself a buffoon similar to Joe Biden if he does not become more fully acquainted with the basic premises of his political position.

Trump is very, very good at making a buffoon of himself.

Back in 2008, Trump attempted to run for president on the Reform Party ticket, advocating a 14% tax on rich people.

For example, recently, it looks as though he paid people $50 a head to show up at his “presidential announcement” rally and make it look like they like him:
