I Support President Trump, Not The Republican Party
I do not support the Republican Party – I support President Trump. I am a card carrying Republican, but that is only so I can vote in the Primary. I am neither an ideologue nor am I a sycophant who is willing to sell my soul for a pat on the head or an invitation to a “vote Republicans event.”
I supported Donald Trump from the beginning because I knew he was exactly what America needed. He’s a blue-collar billionaire and bare-knuckle brawler from Queens, who knows how to get projects done ahead of time and under budget. He has an economics degree from the Wharton School, which means he actually understands economics.
I knew that Donald Trump would make a great President because he wasn’t just a superior businessman, he embodied the essentials that are requisite for success not least of which is, he’s honest.
Had there been a speck of dirt/scandal in his career, as the man who built a global hotel, real estate, golf course and Casino empire, those trying to prevent him from winning the Republican nomination would have found it. The amount of opposition research that has been done on him is unprecedented.
The Republican Party leadership and the vaporous wraiths that operate from the shadowy sidelines did everything in their power to derail Donald Trump. They were not concerned about you and I the voters. They set about destroying him, and had they been successful they would have propped up some loser and told us “he, she or it” were the best most qualified ever. But they failed.
The Republican leadership tried to force Donald Trump into making promises that amounted to promising he wouldn’t deplete the party by running on a third party ticket if they were successful in trying to steal the nomination from him. No Republican Presidential nominee in history was harassed to make the assurances party leadership tried to force Donald Trump to make.
Even more egregious, the Erebusic and pernicious marplots have done their best to obstruct President Trump’s agenda. And now they think I am stupid enough to give them my money.
Which brings me to my point. I am receiving a dozen or more email and text messages weekly from the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), which boasts itself as being: “The only committee exclusively devoted to increasing the number of Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives.”
They are pounding me, just as they are others, for money to build President Trump’s Wall. That’s rich isn’t it? The Republicans had the majority in the House for President Trump’s first two years. It is the Republicans who have fought and opposed President Trump at every turn on building the Wall, on stopping illegals, on immigration, and on ending obamcare.
President Trump’s only objective since he decided to run for office has been to Make America Great Again for you and I, and the future of our children, such as is left. He didn’t go to Washington to become rich, he went for us. And from his first day in office, the most heinous obstructors of his agenda have been Republicans and the Republican leadership committees. And that is because they are factually no different than Democrats. They just have different logos.
A fundraising email I received from NRCC reads in part: “As you know, the wall is in danger. Nancy Pelosi and the socialist Democrats just filed a federal lawsuit claiming President Trump is stealing funds to build the wall. We need your help to fight back against this assault on the President and resolve the crisis our country is facing on our southern border. President Trump needs allies in the House to fight back against vicious socialist Democrat tactics and build the wall…As patriots and strong supporters of President Trump, please don’t let this ‘special extension of 500 percent matching go to waste.”
I’m receiving similar from Karl Rove and others. One Congressional plea for my money was titled: “Don’t Let House Democrats Stop The Wall.” I say the heck with Democrats, it’s the Republicans we have to fight to get the wall built.
These people must think you and I are stupid. Do they think I/we forgot they’re the reason President Trump’s Wall, which is in fact our Wall, hasn’t been funded? Our Wall would have been funded and much of it built if House Republicans had not fought against him. Are we supposed to forget that Republican leadership has opposed President Trump on stopping illegal aliens and protecting Americans?
Are we supposed to forget that Karl Rove hates President Trump and will stop at nothing to see him out of office and a loser installed? Are we supposed to forget that Republican leadership betrayed Sarah Palin and Herman Cain? Do they think I am unaware their focus group data shows that using the word “socialist” will have a Pavlovian response on our willingness to give?
The truth is that Republicans, the NRC, Republican PACs and their varying fundraisers are not interested in helping President Trump succeed; they are interested in raising money to use against him. They are using his popularity to fundraise for candidates we’re opposed to.
You may not remember Karl Rove’s dirty tricks in Delaware when liberal Republican Mike Castle lost to Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell in 2010? They don’t come any more liberal than Castle and yet Karl Rove announced on FoxNews, that O’Donnell would not receive any Republican monies to help her defeat the Democrat. Rove and party leadership were forced to walk back their threats to not financially support O’Donnell’s campaign after her surprising victory.
In New Jersey, Republican leadership supported the Democrat candidate rather than see the Tea Party candidate win. And these people have the nerve to think I would give them the sweat off my brow? I donate directly to the candidate of my choice.
Giving my money to Republican leadership groups only guarantees candidates that I am bitterly opposed to will be funded. President Trump won because We the People supported him. President Trump won because you and I voted for him and funded his campaign.
How much of the money donated by people supporting President Trump in 2016 went to support those we opposed? This isn’t my first rodeo as the saying goes. I am intimately familiar with how the process works. I’ve been on the inside of the system for a very long time. I’ve watched up close and personal as Karl Rove and George Bush misled us and betrayed Christian conservatives, many of whom still do not realize they were duped. I’ve watched from the inside as Rove and Reince Priebus sabotaged Michael Steele.
The only thing these fundraising emails, letters, and text messages are doing is offending me. It’s an insult to my intelligence for them to think I will blindly believe their bogus promises to support President Trump’s border initiative when they have fought him every step of the way.
Republicans are notorious for making promises and raising money when they’re not in the majority. Then as soon as they secure the majority, they wave hello to us by placing their thumbs to their noses.
They promised if we helped them secure majorities in both Houses of Congress they would end obamacare. They lied!! As soon as they had the majority they increased the budget for obamacare.
It is a simple formula. We support President Trump we win. We listen to the lies of those referenced here and we lose. President Trump stands in support of America and us. Republican leadership et al, stand in support of themselves, lobbyists, and the applause of those who undermine Making America Great Again.
