You've got no chance! No chance in hell!

Donald Trump speaks for the base on immigration which is why the Republican establishment will actively work to destroy him like they did with Ron Paul. They'll say that Trump is a clown who will self-destruct just fine without their help, but he doesn't strike me as the type to drop out because the media said mean things about him for a weekend or two. He understands one thing about modern politics that the other candidates don't: nobody actually wants or cares about apologies. They want a public confession they can use to beat you over the head.

Of course that doesn't mean we should get too emotionally invested in a Trump campaign. Even if he won every state primary in a landslide, the Republicans would make it a brokered convention to keep him off the ballot. That has one silver lining: it would demonstrate beyond any reasonable doubt that modern democracy is a sham that is not designed to give the people a choice in how they are actually governed, but is a public liturgy meant to affirm our allegiance to liberalism. To those true believers who still believe they can work within the system to make changes for the better, well, I've got a song that seems written especially for you:

I support Trump purely for the lulz. He may be a right-liberal, but he's got the talent for making left-liberals point and sputter. That alone makes me like him. Go Donald Go.

  1. My opinion is that the fix is already in for Hillary. However, what ever we think about Trump, we.owe him a debt of gratitude for the entertainment, the "outing" of the phony conservatives like McCain, and raising issues no other candidate dares to.

    Actually I think the 2014 elections proved beyond any doubt that federal elections are a fraud and a scam
