Foolish Contagion

Foolish Contagion

Many people, like Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, are not supporting Donald Trump because of Donald's harsh tone and word gaffes, which have plagued his campaign.  His would be supporters believe that if Trump had a more presidential temperament, he would appeal to a wider electorate with his rhetoric and be doing much better in this election.

The ironic thing, and one reason why Mitt Romney hates The Donald, is Trump has blamed Romney losing the presidency back in 2012 because during the last month of that campaign Trump has said, “Romney choked like a dog.” So, if Donald Trump loses the presidency to Hillary Clinton in 2016, it could be said that he also choked with all his missteps and his perceived mean-spirited tone.   

My contention, however, is that people like Senator Flake and all the Never Trumpers are the ones choking and will deserve the blame if Hillary Clinton wins in November. They will not support Trump no matter what they say and continually bash him, rightly or wrongly, to the media and to all who will hear. Their slogan and hash tag, #NeverTrump, is a foolish contagion because if Trump loses, the country will get Hillary Clinton. This will mean a continuation of Obama type policies: more government control over the economy, higher taxes and liberal Supreme Court Justices; possibly three or four. Forget about Judge Merrick Garland. If Hillary wins, she’ll nominate a much more liberal justice.

It is true that Trump has made many missteps that's given Romney some good come back lines when Trump accuses him of choking, but those missteps will not be the only reason if he ends up losing. Jeff Flake told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday, "I just know that I would like to vote for Donald Trump. It's not comfortable to not support your nominee. But given the positions he's taken, and the tone and tenor of his campaign, I simply can't."

Because of Flake's, Romney's and the rest of the Never Trumpers' principled stance that they simply can’t or won’t support the Republican nominee, that will be the reason why we’ll have another four years of a liberal wreaking havoc on this country with big government policies, liberal justices and authoritarian style executive orders. What great patriots.
