A post at the Undercover Porcupine by Chris Dixon concerning the outcome of the New Hampshire presidential primary points out something that also annoys me; anti-Trumpites need to stop with the charade that he is a bug, rather than a feature, of the political system.
The way the field is shaping up, this could drag all the way to the National Convention. What will happen there? The establishment will broker a compromise moderate who will take down Trump and one or more failed runner ups.
Until then, why are you helping the same establishment that burned Ron Paul?
Don’t like Donald Trump? Fine. Don’t support him. But this rhetoric over the arrival of the end times is absolute insanity. And in all honesty, there are more legitimate threats to liberty in this race like Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
Life goes on. There’s a lot of primary time left, which means a lot of delegates left for opponents to earn and caucuses to rig to a degree that Debbie Wasserman Schultz would be proud of.
Until then, relax. Do something productive like support Rand Paul in the Senate or Thomas Massie and Justin Amash in the House, your favorite state and local liberty legislators and politicians, and work to enact change locally.
The world isn’t over because the second state of fifty casted votes. It’s the honest truth.
I have to agree with him on where to direct our criticism, or our energy. The selective outrage bothers me more than the Trumpites who see him as The Right Guy who will return us to some former glorious era.
To act like we’ve never seen this before, that the sky really is falling with this candidate, that he’s a bad apple in a barrel of fresh fruit, is just melodramatic naivete, or worse.
The anti-Trumpers in the GOP Establishment who also treated Ron Paul like garbage in 2012 deserve what they get, and even if Trump doesn’t win the nomination, seeing the their jimmies get rustled over the possibility is worth the price of admission.
I disagree with trying to get anyone elected. Focus on your own life. Improve yourself. Apply free market principles where you can. Learn a trade. Produce something people are willing to pay for. Network with like-minded people. Form relationships based on something greater than your superficial support for someone you’ve never met and who doesn’t even know you exist.
And for the love of God, don’t debate it on Facebook.
