I know the title of this post might strike the average reader as a bit pedantic but bear with me. Donald Trump is the front runner for the GOP nomination for President today. Today is 17 August 2015. This may come as a surprise to many political personages who read my blog posts but the only person that can defeat Donald Trump for the GOP nomination is Donald Trump. There is no stupid thing that the man can say that will sway the GOP base– the arch conservatives I’ll call them from their position of loyalty to him.
The reality of the state of the Right today is that they have codified their xenophobia into their DNA. Conservatives have become the Dixiecrats of the 21st Century and are doubling down on being able to seize ultimate power [state houses, governorships, the House, Senate and the White House] before their base becomes too old or dies. Barring something criminal, or his own decision to withdraw from the race, Donald Trump will win enough delegates to become the GOP nominee in 2016. There isn’t a single individual among the other 16 candidates that keep pace with him.
I was inspired to write this article because of Trump’s lack of savvy in regard to using military force. I am guilty of blaming Bush for the farce of the Iraq War when it was actually the hawkish neocon advisers that surrounded the man. Trump is much more of a fool that George W Bush ever will be. This man is dangerous and not ideologically but seriously dangerous. I don’t give a fuck how much money he’s made; running a governmental mechanisms of a nation the size of the United States is a job better left to politicians. Trump will destroy everything he touches much as a blind man would plow every thing in his path driving on a highway no matter how confident he is.
So in November 2016, Donald Trump will either be running against Hillary Clinton or if her server blunder makes her unelectable some other Democrat [likely Joe Biden if things get too bad for HRC]. The entire process of debates and campaign stops will finally reduce the political process in America to the level of well produced reality TV. It will be the death of American politics and the end of a process that has survived despite its flaws since 1792. Trump wants to be President and I firmly believe that; the only way the GOP can save itself from self destructing at the convention and being forced to have Trump as their front man is to kill his political aspirations with a combination some manner of Nixonian shenanigans and searching high and low for a true Lincolnite who will boot out the bigots and the religious crazies making the party more diverse and inclusive. if the far right those married to guns, religion and race want to start their own party they can become 21st Century Know Nothings taking a House seat here or there but never amounting to more than a fart in a hurricane. If things stay as they are now Trump will get his wish–political fame at the expense of the American people, the GOP and democracy.
