Jerry Mander – Alexander Hamilton Applied To Trump

“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.” – Alexander Hamilton

Adapted from a post by Ben Howe at Red State

Will we unify behind Donald Trump as the GOP nominee now that his nomination appears to be inevitable?

We should not. We should solidify behind and continue to support #NeverTrump.

#NeverTrump is not a fad. It is not an attempt to change a narrative. It is not a wish or a desire.

#NeverTrump is a fact.

Trump is a dangerous, unpredictable man whose aspirations don’t align with Conservatism. Trump’s morals are questionable at best. Trump’s relationship with the truth is not just tenuous, it’s borderline hostile.

#NeverTrump is not an endorsement of Hillary, it’s an acceptance that Hillary’s ascension is inevitable when the alternative is a wannabe despot.

#NeverTrump does not pick who would be “better” or “worse” in regards to policy positions of the Democrat vs Trump. Rather, it recognizes that Trump’s complete absence of a moral center or ideological commitment means he would likely spend more time cutting deals with Democrats for the appearance of “winning” than you can shake a stick at. In fact, Hillary would be more likely to face gridlock on liberal policies than Trump would.

#NeverTrump is the belief that if a Leftist is going to sit in the oval office, let us not take part in putting them there with our names on their support roster. Let us not let a man for 4 years get up on that bully pulpit and create a mistrust of Conservatism that destroys the meager gains we’ve managed.

The party is already destroyed simply by his nomination. #NeverTrump intends to at least salvage Conservatism.

The mantra above from Alexander Hamilton is quite apropos.

“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

More News From The Indiana Primary

Via Senate Conservatives

Conservative Marlin Stutzman (R-IN), the Senate Conservatives Fund endorsed candidate for U.S. Senate, was defeated by RINO Todd Young.

Stutzman lost largely because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his establishment allies spent $2 million misleading voters.

Their strategy was to “flip the script” on Stutzman by portraying him as a career politician insider while casting Young as an outsider.

It was a lie, but sadly it worked.

While this is a disappointing loss, the GOP establishment was forced to pretend to be Conservative in order to win elections. They got away with the deception this time, but that won’t always be the case.

Which brings us to the good news.

Conservative Jim Banks , our endorsed candidate for Congress in the 3rd district (to replace Stutzman in the House), won the Republican nomination.

Bank’s chief opponent tried to portray him as an insider too, but thanks to the generous support of thousands of Senate Conservative Fund members, we were able to invest over $130,000 to help Banks win this race.

If Banks wins the general election in November, he will join the House Freedom Caucus and help expand the fight for our principles.

Conservative reaction to what is now the Trumpublican Party

We Conservatives didn’t leave the Republican Party. The Republican Party left us.

  1. Well if Trump is the nominee he will get my vote. If he is as crazy as some say we do have congress that can remove him from office and if he has a reasonable VP we will have better than Hillary. I do not know what “Trump will do but I think I know what Hillary will do, she will give us ultra Obama.

    I am in the anyone but Hillary camp.

    I also would like to point out to the conservatives that WE HAVE NOT ELECTED A CONSERVATIVE IN MANY YEARS. NO ONE has cut spending, slowed government growth, stopped abortions and the list goes on. As I said I do not know Trump, I know he is not conservative, but neither have the CONSERVATIVES elected in the recent past. Just my opinion.

    I AM IN NO HURRY TO RUSH HILLARY IN NOR ACCEPT HILLARY!

    • You are quite right in rejecting Old HItlery. I won’t push back on your willingness to vote for Trump. I understand your thinking. That said, the more I learn about him, the more convinced I am that I cannot vote for him.

    I will vote for ANYBODY who opposes Billery. Even if the remains of Mrs. R.M. Nixion & Spiro Agnew were to be resurrected as per the modern day Walking dead, I would still vote for him, bad breath and all.

    She can’t even lie well…

    • As much as I abhor the idea of Old Hitlery and BJ being back in the White House, I absolutely cannot bring myself to vote for Trump. A few months ago, I thought I would be able to hold my nose and vote for him were Cruz unable to get the nomination. But the more I learn about Trump, the more I’m convinced that I cannot vote for him. I’m likely to write in Cruz.

      I’m baffled as to why Cruz abruptly pulled the plug. I expected him to take the fight all the way to Cleveland. He must know something we don’t – but from my perspective he erred by ending his campaign.

      We are well and truly screwed now.
