Personally, I’ve thrown up my hands in despair at the debased state of the GOP. I don’t want to be identified with the party of the child-snatchers. ..
…a vote for the GOP in November is also a vote for egregious obstruction of justice, rampant conflicts of interest, the demonization of minorities, the debasement of political discourse, the alienation of America’s allies, the end of free trade and the appeasement of dictators.
That is why I join Will and other principled conservatives, both current and former Republicans, in rooting for a Democratic takeover of both houses in November. Like postwar Germany and Japan, the Republican Party must be destroyed before it can be rebuilt.
The GOP must be de-Nazified and de-Axisfied, get it? Because of course what’s happening now in the US with Republicans is exactly like that, and the Democrats are kind of like the Allies.
I bow to no one in my discussion of Trump’s flaws, but I recognize his strengths—particularly since taking office. I have seen no obstruction of justice, egregious or otherwise. Rampant conflicts of interest are part and parcel of Democrats, more so even than Republicans, and certainly part of politics in general. Republicans are not demonizing minorities—if Boot were to pay attention to what is actually being said for the most part rather than what his MSM colleagues say is being said. As for allies being alienated—well, it depends on the allies (Eastern Europe seems rather happy). And allies would disagree with the policies of any robust GOP, even if Will and Boot designed that policy. I’m not too happy with the trade situation, but I’m willing to see what happens, and I certainly don’t put “free trade” on a pedestal either. As for “appeasement of dictators”—that’s what I saw with Obama, not Trump. In fact, the Democrats Boot wishes to put in power don’t just appease dictators, they revere and wish to emulate them.
What is it with these guys, Boot and Will and their ilk? Their revulsion to Trump is so great that they have joined forces with people they have worked against their entire lives—Democrats, liberals, and particularly the left, which, if Boot has been paying any attention lately, has taken over the Democratic Party.
“What is it with these guys, Boot and Will and their ilk?”
They are leftist Ronny haters. I have read Max occasionally for 15 years. Never heard of Will til ’03 when the LSM referred to him as a “conservative”. I read 3 o his rants and by ’05 stopped. As I said in ’06 Will was what Dr. Hayed in THE ROAD…. labels a “Collectivist”! the antithesis of conservative! Last year when Will announced to the America haters of the world he was leaving the GOP AoSHQ ran son background on the far left progressive. Will openly opposed Ronny in ’76. Wrote several antiRonny rants in ’80 including 2 weeks before he was the official GOP candidate for President. All of these were news to me; but that Will has always been a liberal was not news!
Both Max + George worked very hard for 18 years to make the GOP a “progressive” party. Their rants generally , not always, were liberal lies.
Boot and Will have not changed how they think! They are only being a little more honest with us about who, or what , they are – leftists!
Never heard of either of them, so dont think they should let the door hit them on the way out. Thing is with CNN addicts like these guys you see who they endorse and vote the other guy in. We might ask them to come back to make sure we collect the key to the door.
I made a serious error in the post 1932 leader of the “Austrian School”
Herr Dr. Dr. F. Hayek. A great scholar, and leader chased out of his homeland by the Marxists in ’37 as they prepared to jin Germany.
again the hame is HAYEK
Myexcuse, weak, is age
But then it would be politically useless.
Some of both Democrats and Republicans object to Trump’s uninvited invasion into the elite club of card-carrying politicians. Trump is NOT a politician so he can’t be trusted to play by the politician rules. Why, that crazy bastard just follows his PRINCIPLES! Plus, he is too rich to buy off or bribe. The political establishment hates him; he’s ruining the fun for everyone.
