When the brave conservatives voices at NRO came out with their “Against Trump” manifesto, I allowed my spirits to be momentarily lifted. “Finally”, I thought. “This can turn back into an election and stop being a temper tantrum”.
I hoped against hope that even more conservative voices would join in, adding their heft to the inescapable conclusion that Mr. Trump is bad news. I was wrong to have gotten my hopes up. What we’ve been treated to the past few weeks, if not outright support for this charlatan, has been more of a collective shrug. Worse, I’ve read some of my heroes on conservative blogs actually say “It’s okay – we’ve had worse”.
That does it.
Since nobody else is going to sit America down for a little Dutch-uncle talk, I guess it’s up to yours lovable truly.
Dear percentage of Americans who are still considering casting votes for this fraud (And I say this with all the caring and concern I can muster):
Are you out of your rabbit-assed minds?
NO!! IT’S NOT OKAY.
It’s NOT okay to have the possible president of the United States drop the “f”-bomb.
It’s NOT okay to seriously consider a candidate for the most powerful office in the freaking world who calls people “Pussies”, “Bimbos”, “Losers”, “Clowns”, “Idiots” – need I continue?
It’s NOT okay to vote for a man (and I use the term loosely) who urges his supporters to beat the cr*p out of people at rallies.
It is NOT okay to consider a man who is more concerned with in quantum meruit than e pluribus unum.
It’s NOT okay to cast your vote for a man who attempted to throw a little old lady out of her home so he could have limousine parking for a casino.
It’s NOT okay to vote for a man who openly calls for boycotts of businesses, newspapers and networks that disagree with him.
It’s NOT okay to chance having a first lady in the White House who has appeared nude in a men’s magazine. If that qualifies me as a fuddy-duddy, then so be it. The FLOTUS should be an uplifting figure, not a figure wearing a pushup bra.
It’s NOT okay for you to vote for a con artist who is going to lose what is a hands-down winnable general election to either Hillary or Bernie because you’ve been deluded into rapture that “democrats are going to cross over and vote for him” . Yeah – IN THE PRIMARY. Screw your heads on straight. Primary, maybe. General – they’re going to go right back into the democrat fold.
It’s NOT okay for you to risk losing solid conservatives in every down-ticket race, whose chances of winning on Trump’s coattails are slim, fat and none – and slim went to lunch.
It’s NOT okay for you to risk the future of my children and grandchildren just because you think it’s funny to have an angry game show host who sends out mean tweets leading the pack.
It’s NOT okay to entertain the notion of giving control of one of the world’s strongest military forces, not to mention approximately 4,000 nuclear codes, to a man who can’t even control his temper on Twitter.
This election is not “an interesting dichotomy into the mind of the angry electorate”.
This election is not a chance to “marvel” over someone who is breaking all the rules and sticking his short, stubby vulgar finger in the eye of the “establishment”, the “media”, the who-freaking-ever.
This election is an election, dammit – our country’s future rests on the shoulders of the person who wins in November.
It’s NOT okay.
