Republican voters are fed up with moderates, the beltway crowd, GOP elites. Guys like McConnell, McCain, Bush, Ryan. They are all about reaching across the aisle, compromising, forming consensus. That sounds so civilized, except that their idea of compromise is giving in to what the democrats want. In short, they are doing a lousy job of being republicans. Beltway style leadership tells us to be very afraid of a Government Shut Down. Americans remember the “government shut down” in 2013. Did the USA stop functioning because there was no budget? Nope. Some park employees got overtime fencing off public monuments. Other than that, things pretty much went on as usual. Even though the shrill voices of our elected in Washington cried that if more money wasn’t pulled out of the taxpayers there would be chaos. The mail would not be delivered. Old people would run out of cat food. Milk supplies gone, children would lie unconscious on grocery store floors. Hard working government consultants would go out of business because Uncle Sam couldn’t pay them. With no money for police and fire fighters, crime and fires would be rampant. This hysterical hyperbole is just one of the reasons people have had enough of the Washington Regulars. Enter: Donald Trump. He doesn’t even need campaign donations, he’s got plenty of money, and his own plane. Trump’s slogan is Make America Great Again! Now who can argue with that? His blunt demeanor left many saying, finally! No more oh so polite not really getting to the point bland moderate wooden establishment candidates, like the last one. Trouble is, before long it is clear that Trump isn’t really anti-establishment, as in, let’s get back to the business of government serving The People, not the other way around. Trump is anti-establishment Trump style. That is, Trump is in this presidential race for the same reason Trump does anything else. That kind of power is hard to resist for a mercenary like Trump. With Trump as president, will the government elite power problem be tamed? Should Republican voters hope this bombastic man with no clear core beliefs (other than himself) can successfully lead the country? Or will Trump be a variation on the last new and unique presidential disaster? Meanwhile, the Beltway Gang is foaming at the mouth over Trump. He will cut deals but he’s not really one of them, he’s too independent. They can’t support Ted Cruz who stubbornly holds on to weird promises such as, let’s not spend The People’s money like it’ll never run out. Rubio is their manikin. Unfortunately, the voters seem lukewarm to Marco. What can the long suffering GOP elite do in order to maintain their comfortable gigs? Take down Trump, of course! Bring Romney back to offer insipid disapproval of Trump as a human being. If that yawn fest doesn’t work, they might get Mitt to run again. It’s almost as though the GOP moderates’ choice is Hillary Clinton. She is establishment. They know how to work with her ilk. There will be no chance of any pesky conservative new old ideas being tossed around with Clinton. The GOP gang might as well move on over to the left side seats- save all that arm strain, reaching across the aisle. Meanwhile, the democrats seem to be having some anti-establishment problems of their own. Socialist Sanders is getting quite a bit of attention. There are democrats supporting Trump. These are tough times for the establishment. That, at least, is something good happening in this election.
