    So, conservatism, being a stable, rational ideology, and trumpery, being an unstable, irrational one dictates that conservatism will endure and trumpery will fizzle.

    He is not waiting, merely ineffectual.

    Can you imagine Trump as an ineffectual dictator?

    The President is clearly a racist. Open your eyes, heart and mind.

    It's true enough; of course, for political reasons many will deny it perpetually.

    Terribly bad idea.

    Take a look at the party platforms, and see what's up.

    Here you go again, claiming to be a conservative. This whole post is the liberal point of view.

    I have and the left wants to raise taxes and open the borders just to name 2. If you care about the economy and your country I urge people to vote red.

    Sandy is right on the money, and as a grassroots Republican I agree with his assessment.

    Free trade? It may be the liberal point of view if you say so, and my feelings about Trump mirror their feelings about him. Call it what you want.

    Not even in the ball park Trump remains quite popular among the Republican base. It is the Washington establishment that hates his guts.

    He remains popular with his flock and not with many Republicans.

    Well, I hope people can see better than what you suggest. It's as though you really haven't been paying attention to reality.

    Regards.

    I have been paying close attention watching the left becoming more and more communist. 50 million dead in the people's revolution in China and almost as many in the Russian revolution. Most of them killed after the revolutions. No thank you to socialism/communism.

    The efforts of conservatives to take back the GOP from the RINOs of Trumpery will intensify following the verdict of Americans issued on November 6.

    Watch Romney's quest for the 2020 presidential nomination. It'll be calculated, patient, deliberate, and methodical.

    Before Lyin' Don carried the electoral vote, Willard "Mitt" Romney had nailed him:

    Given recent exposure of the reality tv performer's unpatriotic tax evasion, Willard's having spanked spanked Lyin' Don with a virtual rolled-up copy of Forbes after he had repeatedly, falsely, promised to release his tax returns accrues to the GOP's respect for Willard.

    ~ Senator Romney, you haven’t run through a series of trophy wives and cheated on them with bimbos.
    How can you even begin to achieve that presidential image in so little time?

    ~ Senator Romney, in your campaign, which of your sons will furtively conspire with Putin’s agents?

    ~ Senator Romney, how can you, a devout Mormon, hope to compete with a skanky reality tv entertainer for the evangelical vote?

    Keep a close eye on Wily Willard.

    He's for real!
