ELDER PATRIOT – With each successive attack they make on Donald Trump two things become more obvious about the Elitists running the Republican Party and both serve to prove what an increasing number of us have come to believe over the past two decades; the Republican Party as currently constituted is not worth saving.
The first piece of evidence is the party’s complete disregard for the will of the millions of men and women who support it. This alone should dispel the legitimacy of today’s Republican Party. Our first President George Washington warned us about the rise of political parties in his farewell speech:
“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
Republican leadership’s continued attempts to undermine Donald Trump’s candidacy in spite of his commanding lead in the polls can only be explained by the fact that he is an “outsider” to their leadership club and therefore cannot be trusted to advance the personal agendas of corruption and one-party leadership that they have established in collusion with Democrat leadership.
Even more damning is the Republican Party’s leadership’s decision to accept defeat in the upcoming presidential election, and in the down slate elections, rather than support a Trump candidacy to lead their party. This thought would be unfathomable until one considers how deeply entangled they have become with the Democrats in seizing control of our government to create what serves essentially as a one-party system bent on defrauding the people of trillions of their dollars with only the Ruling Elite benefitting.
This is not new. Throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s the Republican Party contented itself with minority status. They were referred to as Rockefeller Republicans and their abandonment of Republican Principles led to the rise of Barry Goldwater and later Ronald Reagan. When Reagan had the temerity to challenge Republican leadership, he was denounced by party leadership as out of touch with a changing Untied States, and as a doddering old fool who wasn’t up to being president.
Then, as now, the Republican base was so fed up with the party’s established leadership that Reagan was able to defeat an incumbent Republican president for the nomination. During the general election his message awakened the “silent majority” propelling him to the presidency in successive landslides, the second bigger than the first.
America’s Mayor Rudy Guiliani suggested Trump might be another Ronald Reagan. Republican leadership knows this, as well. That’s why their growing efforts to undermine his brand of populism speaks loudly about what they’ve become; highly paid lackeys representing the interests of mega corporations and international bankers at the expense of their voting constituency.
Over our Nation’s nearly two and a half centuries of existence, the people have come to think of the two major political parties as two branches of our government. They aren’t. The uniqueness of the United States has always been the underlying principle that our government belongs to we, the people. And, now that the people are standing up to reclaim their government, Republican leadership finds them selves in a death struggle to preserve what has become their personal gravy train. In the process they have exposed themselves not as a party that listens to the people who support it but as a party has disdain for the people who are trying to save it.
