Decision 2016: Democrats, Trumpians and Tea Partiers

Of course, American presidential elections are always pivotal events. Any time there is a potential for changing leadership and government policy, there can’t help but be repercussions felt throughout the American landscape.

We have always had the two major parties – the Democrats and the Republicans, both with assumed allegiances – the former to government, the latter to business. From time to time, there has been a third party interloper representing a narrow slice off one or the other major parties, sometimes enough of a slice to carve off enough votes to influence the outcome of the election.

My read on 2016 is that it will be different.

The Democrat candidates revealed at the CNN debate that not only are they the party of government, they have moved far enough left now to become the party of TOTAL government. The Fringe leftists (like the American Communist Party) have always supported and endorsed the Democrat candidate but the candidacy and popularity of Bernie Sanders has emboldened the rank and file Democrats to drop the mask of progressivism and reveal who they really are. The danger is that they are unified behind the identity politics of electing the first female president regardless of her experience, track record, character [lack of], her policies or her criminality (alleged, of course). Same song as electing the first black president in 2008, just a different verse.

The Republicans are not unified.

trumpThe GOP now contains two viable factions – the Trumpians and the Tea Partiers.

Let’s examine the Trumpians first. The Establishment GOP (GOPe) dislikes Donald J. Trump because he jumped in the head of the line ahead of their anointed candidate, Jeb Bush (or the baby Bush, Marco Rubio). This kind of breaking line is just not cricket in the world of the cotillion GOPe where polite order is expected – but while Trump talks like an outsider, he represents perfectly the cronyism the GOPe rewards and expects. He just embarrasses them by being so blatantly honest about it. The GOPe doesn’t like Trump’s hostile take-over bid and their soon to be realized future as a wholly owned subsidiary of Trump Politics, Inc.
In the first debate Trump said of politicians he had “worked with” in the past:

“I give to everybody. When they call, I give. And you know what, when I need something from them two years later, three years later, I call them. They are there for me. That’s a broken system.”

It isn’t a broken system to either the Democrats or the GOPe – this is what they have worked together for years to pervert and contort our representative Republic into. It is pay to play crony capitalism and they like it.

Trump represents the same ideology that was once called “compassionate conservatism” – the nonsensical idea that government is a tool to be used to advance the cause of less government (think Dub’s Medicare Part B). In reality, it is no different to the aims of the Democrats. It is corporatism and fascism. When more power is given to government for any end, the only winner is government.

The “other” faction in the GOP are the Tea Partiers, a group dedicated to the limited government as designed by our Founders. This is a group that both the Democrats and the GOPe look down on – the Ted Cruzes and Rand Pauls – the “wacko-birds” (Carly Fiorina is right on the edge of this group as the anti-Trump business outsider candidate. I don’t really know where Carson is – there is just something a little too kumbaya about him.) This faction knows and respects the Constitution, the rule of law, true equality under the law and true liberty. They clearly understand that the mechanism of our government, the progressive Leviathan built on the collectivist policies of FDR and the racism and disdain of the Constitution of Woodrow Wilson, has become as self-aware as the SkyNet of the Terminator movies and is just as dedicated to the destruction of humans.

If a person is truly known by their enemies, this last group is the group all true lovers of liberty should be supporting. With the Democrats and the Trumpians, you will get the same thing. The Democrats and Trumpians both want Yuge government, the only difference is that while the Democrats don’t care how well government works (they measure success by burn rate just like Wall Street did during the dotcom boom and bust), the Trumpians promise the most classy, phenomenal, tremendous, efficient well-oiled China beating Leviathan ever.

Should be an interesting 2016.

  1. Carly Fiorina is nowhere close to the Tea Party nor Conservative Constitutionalism. She is pro-Open Borders, Pro-Amnesty ( via the “Comprehensive immigration reform” charade)…..and she is a complete “islam is the religion of peace” muslim apologist.

    She hasn’t mention the Constitution in any of her “speeches” and was brought in by the Rove-Bush camp specifically to attack Trump. She is portrayed as an “Outsider” but is in fact the exact same kind of Crony Capitalist as is the Bush/Rubio -Rove camp. Her strong support of Foreign H1B visas over Native born US College graduates is just one example.

    Now, This Constant echoing of the Establishment GOP line against Trump serves only to discredit one’s analysis and bolster support of Trump. In case folks haven’t noticed there is a large support base surrounding Trump that ALSO includes Cruz and Carson. In other words all three are spoken of favorably by the same people. And many of those are self identified “independents”. Thus the critique of Trump serves to further isolate those who partake in it into the Establishment camp.

    When there is a PERMA-Hate-on for someone ….. the peoples gets suspicious. Especially trying to form equivalence relationships between Democrats and Trump. This is failing precisely because the evidence is CRYSTAL CLEAR that the equivalence is between the Democrats and the Establishment GOP = RINOs. The lesson if 2010 and 2014 being lived DAILY bu the base !

    Rand Paul is failing precisely because of his attacks on Trump, and his clear association with the Establishment. With out Rand’s support Mitch McConnell would NOT be the speaker…..and the self-same “independents KNOW this ! Finally his myopic view about islam and “not getting involved” overseas mixed with his public condemnation of America regarding islamic violence connects him with Obama’s philosophy more than Tea Party inclinations. Rand Paul is Rubio-esque in his actual ANTI-Tea Party transformation.

    Rand Paul is no Ted Cruz !!

    • And as a case in point : The recent Jeb Bush ‘Plot against Trump’

      It was Bush who used the Democrat talking points against Trump in a cheezy and dishonest attempt to derail Trump, delivered in the form of Faux out-raged Lauren Batchelder, 18 a Bush campaign worker.

      Tea Partiers , Conservatives and Independents see clearly what is going on; more hate for one man than for the accumulated policies of Obama and the Democrats by the SAME GOP that is disfunctional and working WITH Democrats.

      Thus the Trump haters now become : # TrumpHaters are all Bush-Batcheldrs now !

      • If you think Trump is a Tea Partier, you are sadly mistaken. Bush’s stunt was, if you pardon the pun, bush league but bad enemies do not make a good friend. Just as I said, Trump will use government just like a progressive – all he is promising is to oil it better.

    • So, I’m confused. Fiorina is a crony capitalist sent in to attack Trump, another avowed crony capitalist? If you will wipe the spittle out of your eyes, you will note that I only grouped her where I did because she is, in fact, the anti-trump outsider. I don’t believe she is a Muslim apolologist because in every piece of “evidence” cited, the context is clear that was not what she was doing and she was speaking of Arabic civilization, not religion.

      Say what you want about Rand Paul – I don’t support him or his nutbag daddy, but he does understand the Constitution.

      It seems you mostly agree with my point, you just disagree with how I god there…or maybe not.

      • Sometimes it is hard for me to see who is answering who in the comment section. I assume you are addressing me but if you were addressing Joe then understand I misread.

        She was indeed speaking of islam and muslims. Speaking down to American audiences admonishing them to respect this great achieving culture and not link the events of 911 to them. GW then went on to inform us that ….islam is the religion of peace. It was a coordinated effort by the Establishment to corral American opinion.
        Also for one to speak of “Arabic civilization” in the context she did and the TIME she referenced is virtually the self-same thing as islam. There was no separate Arab civilization from islam or the islamic caliphate in the 1100-1450 timeframe. And the “accomplishments” she hinted at were not Arab created either. They were Arab Collected….. from other cultures. She was spreading gross un-truths. The question is why. Further, Arab civilization sans islam is somewhat problematical. What existed as settled culture outside the nomadic tribes prior to 600 AD can hardly be described as a high culture. It was an amalgam of tribes with a polytheistic belief system. The language if I remember correctly was still not a cohesive uniform structure until about a century before ‘mohamed the pedophile’ began his career. Although there was a strong tradition of Arabic Poetry. Into this regional collection of small kingdoms and City States the cult of islam grew and what dim echos of culture that floated out of the peninsula along with the beheadings and mass murder were joined at the hip with “the religion of submission and death”.
        It is virtually impossible to isolate a distinguishable Arab Civilization as distinct from…islam.

        I agree Rand does seem to understand The Constitution and even more importantly, the Bill of Rights. Which makes his strong support of Mitch McConnell ever so “curious”.

        The Donald has a past which is mixed. And there is no doubt that progressivist thought has informed his own career. As well as Crony capitalist capers. The difference for public consumption is his honesty in admitting such. And in continuing to do so. This has a big legitimacy factor. For instance Cruz himself is somewhat squirrelly on the immigration issue as it relates to H1B visas. That he favors foreign workers over Native born US college graduates is disturbing……that he favors INCREASING them is well….

        But I submit a further reference regarding the good Lady Carly…. a good read with ample links to her Clinton ties, Crony affiliations, progressive politics and muslim apparatchiks (Al Mansour).

    • Don’t forget Fiorina also praises our nation’s enemy (Islam) as a ‘superior culture.’ I know Utah disagrees, but I went back and looked at the context of her several statements. She is an Islamic apologist as much as Trump is a Progressive.

      You cannot be President if you do not recognize threats to this nation.

        • IN CONTEXT: Fiorina called Islam the greatest civilization in the world. Here is the full transcript. Make no mistake, THIS WOMAN MUST NOT BECOME PRESIDENT!

          There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world.

          It was able to create a continental super-state that stretched from ocean to ocean, and from northern climes to tropics and deserts. Within its dominion lived hundreds of millions of people, of different creeds and ethnic origins.

          One of its languages became the universal language of much of the world, the bridge between the peoples of a hundred lands. Its armies were made up of people of many nationalities, and its military protection allowed a degree of peace and prosperity that had never been known. The reach of this civilization’s commerce extended from Latin America to China, and everywhere in between.

          And this civilization was driven more than anything, by invention. Its architects designed buildings that defied gravity. Its mathematicians created the algebra and algorithms that would enable the building of computers, and the creation of encryption. Its doctors examined the human body, and found new cures for disease. Its astronomers looked into the heavens, named the stars, and paved the way for space travel and exploration.

          Its writers created thousands of stories. Stories of courage, romance and magic. Its poets wrote of love, when others before them were too steeped in fear to think of such things.

          When other nations were afraid of ideas, this civilization thrived on them, and kept them alive. When censors threatened to wipe out knowledge from past civilizations, this civilization kept the knowledge alive, and passed it on to others.

          While modern Western civilization shares many of these traits, the civilization I’m talking about was the Islamic world from the year 800 to 1600, which included the Ottoman Empire and the courts of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo, and enlightened rulers like Suleiman the Magnificent.

          Although we are often unaware of our indebtedness to this other civilization, its gifts are very much a part of our heritage. The technology industry would not exist without the contributions of Arab mathematicians. Sufi poet-philosophers like Rumi challenged our notions of self and truth. Leaders like Suleiman contributed to our notions of tolerance and civic leadership.


    • I agree with everything you’ve said. I think the reason Trump and Carson are so popular is because they are refreshingly honest. While Trump has some progressive views, he has been open about them.
