Conservatives are turning their backs on opportunity related to the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. You have a bloc of valuable votes. Trump basically has the nomination secure barring a battle behind the scenes at the convention.
That unlikely battle, by the way, would definitely lead to another term of the Clintons.
Consider what is up for grabs. Supreme court nominations. Reining in insane regulations (see the buy modafinil online canada for more on that). Healthcare taxes. Federal intrusion into education. The 2nd Amendment. The 1st Amendment.
Bear in mind Mrs. Clinton and the Democrats’ war on energy.
Trump isn’t a hardcore ideologue. That is actually a good thing. Look at what diehard ideology in the hands of the buy modafinil online sun pharma wrought during President Barack Obama’s tenure.
Start by advocating for something I believe is critical—an originalist on the Supreme Court. Right now political ideology controls the court. I give you the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act fiasco as an example—Elena Kagan sounded more like lobbyist than justice when she dangled buy modafinil singapore as justification for taxing the bodies of US citizens.
If balance isn’t added to the court, we will continue to see faulty decisions based on politics rather than precedent or reason. So if I were a conservative power broker, I’d be strategizing to get Sen. Ted Cruz’s name top of the SCOTUS list. He would be one of the few who would come close to the late Justice Antonin Scalia and he would bring a semblance of balance.
Another opportunity involves spending and waste. Politicos like Speaker of the House Paul Ryan take a narrow view—cut Medicare and place restrictions on social security. Both these programs are funded on demand with the full force of the federal government. The worker and the employer are forced to pay into those ‘entitlement’ programs. At the same time, Ryan is fine with passing big spending bills yielding to Democrats, and buy modafinil paypal funded by taking money from taxpayers to distribute to those who don’t pay income taxes.
So maybe practical conservatives could start educating Trump on federal spending, buy modafinil europe (fraud is rampant), and above all, protection of the Bill of Rights. Consider the government blows roughly $100 billion or more in ‘improper payments’ each year.
Also consider Hillary Clinton, Democrats’ presumptive nominee, will go after guns and free speech, all the while making the federal government an even larger presence in our daily lives. Mrs. Clinton will see to it that taxes are hiked and as always, the middle class will bear the brunt of those hikes by the back or side door if not the front.
There are, I realize, some self-described ‘conservatives’ like those at National Review who may not support the Republican Party in November. I don’t believe there are as many as the #NeverTrump camp claims.
I also believe some of those who still attack Trump are hooked on the dollars and publicity coming their way to conduct the attacks. A number of blogs and political sites are funded by large donors and interest groups, just as they are on the left. If you take that kind of money, it’s likely you are going to have a perimeter around your ideology.
Conservatives have leverage. You have a voting bloc that a candidate would value. The candidate is open to ideas. Whatever Trump is, he is obviously not adored by existing power players.
Why, in the interest of keeping Mrs. Clinton out of the White House, would you not use your leverage?
