The Statesmen, the Holdouts and the A-holes
Since I don't do politics on Facebook (every once in a while I indulge myself by posting something and then quickly deleting it), the last year has been rough. Sitting quietly by, commenting thoughtfully on something only to delete it before it's ever read or published and basically presenting myself as a person that is unaffected by politics.
That's probably why I find myself back here. Write or explode. Gosh, it's been so long I still had Glenn Beck at the top of the links --obviously before he lost his friggn' mind...
So, in real life, I have been trying not to judge the #nevertrumpers (hereby know as #HillarysArmy) too harshly. Just three short years ago, I was a pre-hashtag NeverRomney-er. I was pissed. I was adamant. And, I wasn't a total asshole that would walk away from a chance at unseating Obama, so I put on my red big girl pants and voted for a lib in coiffed Mormon's clothing.
I'm hoping the current crop of hurt and angry Cruz supporters will do the same in November. Once some time has passed. Because, once again I reiterate, Mitt was a way worse candidate than Trump.
The good news, hearing that ALL of my personal political favs are behind Trump to defeat Hillary gave me a bit of faith in the establishment-- Cheney, Huckabee, Herman Cain (if you are not following him on Facebook, you should be! LOVE this man.), Newt Gingrich, and Rand Paul. True statesman, all.
Yes, there will be those that refrain from voting. But they'll be the same a-holes that gave us eight years of Obama. The same holdouts that stood on an imagined moral high ground that facilitated the country's moral decay with the beginnings of a far left SCOTUS. There is no reasoning with someone that doesn't possess common sense.
