Personally, I wasn’t one of those who was overly concerned about whether or not Trump would choose to endorse Paul Ryan. And now that he has I’m fairly confident that there will come a day, should Trump win, when he will regret having done so. I was a little confused by claims that Trump’s failure to do so somehow represented a split in the party. I had to laugh whenever I heard Trump being criticized, by a mix of Democrats and the NeverTrump crowd, for not endorsing someone who was actually referred to as a “mainstream Republican.” And I was hoping Trump would end up endorsing is Ryan’s primary opponent, Mr. Paul Nehlen.
Let’s face it, Ryan is nothing if not the “poster boy” for the Chamber of Commerce and as such he very enthusiastically supports the Chambers’ continuing desire for cheap foreign labor regardless of how it might come to impact even his own constituents. Since practically Ryan first set foot into Congress he has never, ever, been supportive of any of the many attempts that have been made to secure our southern border, or to do anything substantial about the issue of illegal immigration into the country. While he’s provided plenty of lip service, he has never done anything that would have resulted in a more secure border! NEVER!
Trump’s endorsement notwithstanding, Ryan needs to display a little honesty and stand up in front of his constituents and say: ‘Look, I’m an open borders guy. The Chamber [of Commerce] believes in it, the Chamber wants cheap labor, [and] I respond to what the Chamber wants. I always have. I’m an establishment guy.’ He needs to tell his constituents who he is. I think that’s the really responsible and respectable thing to do. [Tell voters] ‘I’m for TPP even though, yeah, most of my constituents are going to get hurt by it, but the Chamber wants that.’ He should stand do that because it’s the truth, and he has a responsibility to tell people the truth.
When I hear ‘RINO Ryan’ say things like how he’s so dedicated about doing something about our border, and about how he’s meeting with people to see how we can strengthen the border, I know that it’s all nothing but pure political bullshit! So what I wish to do here is to throw the B.S. flag. You know, there’s a reason that people are so cynical about Congress, and about politicians. And this is one of the reasons why. Because how can you have a guy, who has dedicated his entire political life essentially to one set of policies, ideas and principles, and then yet come home and tell his constituents something that which is the complete opposite.
There are essentially two problems in trying to deal with the immigration issue. The first problem is, of course, the Democrat Party which views massive immigration, both legal and illegal, as being nothing more than a source of voter pool replenishment. The second problem, and just as powerful an enemy by the way, is the Republican Party which views massive immigration, both legal and illegal, as a source of cheap labor. And that philosophy was represented by the Chamber of Commerce, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. And by working to achieve their goal the Republicans are doing nothing more than to reduce the life expectancy of their party, my party.
While we may have had, at one time, a viable and robust two party system, it’s been over time that the two parties have moved much closer together, regarding their political philosophy, much to detriment of the country and of the American people, who have been forced to pay a price in both the amount of their hard earned money they are forced to turn over the government and in the amount of freedom that they have lost because of individuals like Ryan. Conservatives, if they wish to return the Republican Party to what it once was, must position themselves to seize control of it in the same way that the American left has seized control of the Democrat Party.
But I have to be honest, we are rapidly running out of time, as well as the number of chances, we have left to do what so desperately needs to be done. And if we are to have any hope of being successful in that endeavor, despite Trump’s endorsement of Ryan, we, as voters, must still work as hard as we can to get rid of Ryan and all of those like him in this election. The truth is, we have within our party today individuals who are really nothing more than a cancer, a cancer that is slowly, but surely, killing our party. After the 2010, 2012 and 2014 elections we chose to support the Republicans only to find out after the election that we had been lied to.
And if Trump intends to be of any help in that process then he is going to have to remain focused on that which is the big picture. And I think had Trump endorsed Ryan’s opponent it would have increased the odds of Ryan’s defeat, which I think would be a good thing. And by doing so I think he would have accomplished two things, demonstrated his seriousness about immigration reform and that he does intend to push the building of wall through Congress, and he would have put the fear of God into those, like Ryan, who might then start to rethink the Ryan philosophy of putting Americans second, whereas Trump’s desire is to put Americans first.
Now I’m not here to try to convince anyone that Trump has been some life-long conservative, I’m not that naïve. But like it or not at least this time around he is the ONLY option that we have if we are going to succeed in our mission of returning the Republican Party to being that which would truly be a conservative alternative to a Democrat Party that has now moved so far to the left as to make it nearly indiscernible from the Communist Party. To the degree that Chuckie Schumer, Debbie Wizzerman Schultz, and even Hitlery, can’t tell the difference. So we on the right have just 94 days to come together, and begin turning back to the right.
