Does anyone really believe that Hillary Clinton will lose the Democrats’ nomination to avowed socialist Bernie Sanders? Notice that articles about this fantasy are all couched in terms of “she could lose!”…but by that logic every headline in the paper would read “dogs could start talking instead of barking!” and “space aliens could attack Washington today!”. There are an infinite number of things haunting active imaginations that COULD happen each and every day, yet news headlines are not written about any of them.
So, why the obsession with the “Hillary could lose the nomination!” thing? Easy. It’s clickbait, and media outlets know that.
The same thing happened during the Republican primaries, where the media had my boyfriend Justin and his family near-catatonic with all the various permutations of “Trump could lose!”. Justin’s a big Trump guy and hated Ted Cruz. For many months there at the beginning of the year, I had to talk Justin off conspiracy theory ledges every day when he would be worked up about some evil genius scheme that Ted Cruz had cooked up to keep Trump from the nomination. Every day it was something new, some crazy thing to be upset about. Months and months and months of this.
And every day I would tell Justin that none of what he was so upset about was true and that the tee-vee and the sites he was reading were all lying to him. But, the excitement was too addicting, I guess, and Justin didn’t want me to burst his fantasy bubbles. He enjoyed being freaked out and on the edge…and wanted to suck me into that too instead of my calming him down. Justin really can’t stand Ted Cruz and, like me, really enjoys seeing Trump clobber the Establishment and say things that people in this country have been desperate to hear a national figure say during these oppressive last decades of political correctness.
I greatly enjoy seeing the Establishment lose for once, after trying every trick they could to get their way. After McCain and then Romney, it’s refreshing that people didn’t let the “it’s his turn” candidate win the nomination again and the Cocktail Party GOP Elite didn’t get their way.
The reason I support Trump is because the tyranny of political correctness has to end and Americans have to get back to loving America again. Trump has his faults, but he says what people have been wanting a leader to say for a long time. The media and the Cocktail Party set the stage for this with 8 years of Obama: the media pushed Obama on us and the Cocktail Party didn’t much even try to win the last two elections. As a result, the pendulum is swinging hard away from the Obama Regime’s legacy of “America last,” “globalism,” and “transformation” of our country and back to a sense of Americans needing to protect what’s ours and admit that America is the greatest nation on earth, not one of many.
Do I wish that someone other than Donald Trump himself (someone more polished and traditionally-presidential like Ronald Reagan) had emerged on the scene, saying all of the things Trump says but without Trump’s reality tee-vee baggage? Certainly. It’s hard for me to mentally process that all of this is really happening but, again, the media and the Cocktail Party pushed all of this on us with Obama and his reality-star presidency (all of the selfies, the talk show appearances, the hands-off celebrity treatment the press gave him). Trump is a course correction (or coarse correction, depending on how you see him) that has been a long time coming.
The Internet and social media have created an age that is vulgar and toxic. How many years now has it been that the Kardashians have been a de facto royal family in this country and those Real Housewives-type shows have proliferated? Mitt Romney sure looked the part of the classic, Reagan-appearing presidential candidate with the beautiful family and all of that…but Romney had his chance to win and he chose not to really fight for it and become president in 2012. In the home stretch of a very winnable race, Romney pulled punches and phoned it in because I think he didn’t want to be the guy who defeated the first black president’s re-election bid. So, what was the point of him even running if he didn’t want to win?
Now, four years later, Romney’s screwing around behind the scenes trying to help Hillary Clinton be elected. He should be ashamed of himself and his behavior as of late makes me glad he didn’t fight hard and win the presidency. He might look the part, but he sure is not acting the part of someone America needs in the White House. It would be nice if Romney would find something else to do for a while and just enjoy being retired and a grandfather. He had his chance and his turn and he blew it.
And if he hadn’t blown it, we wouldn’t be where we are right now, with Donald Trump being the best chance our country has for the course correction it needs. No matter who is president next, we are in for some very dark days ahead. We’re in a Depression that the media won’t report on as long as a Democrat is in office, so expect by this time in 2017 to be hearing full-on Depression news once Trump is elected. Remember how for years (even to this day) the media blamed Bush for everything bad that happened since Obama took office? That won’t happen the second that Trump is inaugurated. Seconds after taking office, everything will be his fault (with no fault for anything given to Obama). That’s how the shameless media works.
I still don’t see how Hillary Clinton can win this race, provided that Donald Trump doesn’t chicken out like Romney or McCain did and that he continues speaking out against political correctness and the Establishment. This is what America needs and if Trump keeps giving Americans what they need then he will win in November. Hillary is part of the Establishment and won’t speak the truth about our nation’s problems. The Establishment will ensure that she is the Democrats’ nominee but the Establishment cannot hand her the White House.
