Making the cuckservatives weep
1) “I probably identify more as Democrat.”
2) “I’ve been around for a long time. And it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans.”
3) “Nancy — you’re the best. Congrats. [signature]”
—Handwritten note to Speaker Nancy Pelosi
4) “Bush is probably the worst president in the history of the United States.”
5) “I’m totally pro-choice.”
6) “I want to see the abortion issue removed from politics. I believe it is a personal decision that should be left to the women and their doctors.”
7) “I’m very liberal when it comes to health care. I believe in universal health care.”
8) “The Canadian plan also helps Canadians live longer and healthier than Americans… We need, as a nation, to reexamine the single-payer plan.”
9) “By imposing a one-time 14.25 percent net-worth tax on the richest individuals and trusts, we can put America on sound financial footing for the next century.”
Extremism in the defence of liberty is no vice, and moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
And it's only going to get worse.
The reality that faces America is extremely bleak. Demographics is, after all, destiny, and the seismic demographic shifts that this country has undergone over the last thirty years have guaranteed its eventual breakup. The destruction of America's magnificent republican system of government, the abandonment of the uniquely American revolution of personal liberty, are now foregone conclusions.
And let us not forget that, nine times out of every ten, those "Big Man" leaders take their countries and their people straight over the cliff edge and into the abyss.
That is the American that I have had the honour to meet and see and experience firsthand. That is the America that I love. That is the America that had, and has, the grace and kindness and decency to let me come here to live and work as a guest, subject to her laws and on the condition that I become a productive member of her society, and which has let me live here for nearly 9 years in peace and comfort from the fruits of my own exertions.
That is what I would see restored, or at least preserved, so that I never have to explain to my children what it means to be free; all I have to do is point to America.
All of which brings us back to just why it is that Mr. Trump is running away with the field here.
And he, alone, would be able to put an end to this godawful trend of political dynasticism that has blighted American politics:
What red-blooded man wouldn't want to see that?
