GOP at war with itself

GOP at war with itself

There are 3141 comments on the KION 46 story from Mar 4, 2016, titled GOP at war with itself. In it, KION 46 reports that:

The unprecedented spectacle on Thursday of the last Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, blasting his likely successor, Donald Trump, as a "phony" and immoral "fraud" represented more than just an extraordinary moment in a surreal political year. It may be remembered as the moment that the GOP establishment's long-brewing horror over the billionaire businessman burst into open political combat and an active bid to bring him down at the party convention.

It isn't so much the GOP is at war with itself as the voters are fed up with the Establishment elites who are desperately trying to hang onto power and want the Party to represent them rather than sell them out in backroom deals that do not express their wishes. We want NOTHING to do with anyone who smacks of being establishment oriented. That's what has made Trump and Cruz so appealing to voters.

There is a lot to be said for the view you hold. After the turncoat Democrat party turned against (Christian) White people, many of that now suffering demographic swore their allegiance to the Republican party. Believing the Republican party would mount effective resistance to the ongoing genocide of White people - along with their little White children - they became the party's most ardent supporters. Unfortunately, the establishment party bosses gave them nothing in exchange for their loyalty. It should not be surprising that party cohesion is now coming apart.

I would also suggest that after 30 years of the "tax cuts for the rich" mantra, the working class self-identifying Republican finally realizes he has been sold an economic bill of goods that doesn't benefit him in the slightest. As you point out, the establishment party bosses gave them nothing in exchange for their loyalty.

And that is why Trump will be elected, look at the people he draws, women, blacks, Hispanics and UNION voters, when I started to see that trend I knew Trump would crush elderly Hilary, in a debate Trump would eat her lunch.

Yes. Several years ago, Abraham Maslow developed a theory he called a "Hierarchy of needs" theory. His purpose in developing the theory was to explain factors involved in workplace motivation. His theory can also be used to identify factors that motivate ordinary worker ("middle") class behavior.

According to Maslow, the worker ("middle") class must first be able to fulfill basic lower level needs such as food and shelter. Today, we call those lower level needs "economic needs". Once those lower needs are met, the worker ("middle") class seek to fulfill higher level needs such as safety and group identity social needs. The establishment political ruling class take advantage of their knowledge of Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory Whenever the career establishment politicians fear that those over who they rule would cause them to become less necessary because those higher level needs are fulfilled, they invariably substitute lower level (economic) needs in place of the higher level needs the worker ("middle") class seek to fulfill.

As a Republican, I was disappointed with the Party at the last presidential election. And I'm only sticking with the party so long as Trump remains with it.

I am loving Mittens' so selfless re appearance on the national scene.

He's calling someone a "phony" and suggesting that Turnip has embarrassing tax problems. This is the same Bishop Romney who governed in MA as a very liberal Republican and then, much as Turnip has, switched 180 degrees on most major issues in order to try and pretend to be feral enough for the R. base. He failed. Meanwhile, his own tax returns showed, imo, a system which is almost perfectly calibrated for the obscenely wealthy (and their paid accounts and financial planners.)

Mittens says he is not running and that he sees no "reasonable" scenario of his being chosen at the Convention. But saying he is not "running" is not the same as saying, while attacking the frontrunner, that he "will not accept" the nomination. He is not running for the nomination. He wants it brokered to him. And such an event would be seen by all the mormon whatever they are as a fulfillment of their belief that divine events will put a mormon in the White House. That would not be "reasonable," it would be a miracle to them. So we see Mittens' astonishing capacity for dissembling still at work as it was when he last actually sort of did incompetently run for President.

Having said all that, he'd still be less dangerous than Ted McCarthy Cruz or glad hander narcissist Turnip, and probably less of an untested cipher than Marco Zipper Boot Rubio. But that's not saying much.

Great post!
Don't think much has changed in the last 14 months when Willard 'Mittens' Rmoney really, really, really wanted to be President.
Brokered convention bid it undoubtedly is.

Don't you have a cross-burning to attend?

Trump's base consists essentially of two groups, hopelessly naive simpletons, and violent racists (with some overlap). They come mostly in the color white.

Trump is the only candidate willing to address the problem of unfair trade deals. The democrats only pretend to care for the working class.

Trump has proposed stiff tariffs on un patriotic companies moving factories outside the country putting millions of good people out of work.

I thought you were talking about Blacks, considering Blacks are the most dumb, and violent group in the U.S.A, and they mostly support Hillary.

Lawrence Wolf wants more ISIS attacks, Al Qaeda attacks, MS -13 attacks, and Mexican Mafia attacks on American soil.

The guy's not all there.
