America is caught in a tsunami of sad news, depending on one’s point of view. Mueller hasn’t found dirt on Trump; NFL players openly disrespects the America flag and National anthem; a shooter in Las Vegas kills 58 people; The Hillary campaign and the DNC were responsible for the phony “dossier” against Trump; another Muslim murders eight with a truck in NYC & etc..
But, we still have internal problems that, if not countered could make the next few years a mirror image of the past eight. I have pointed out in previous articles that Ohio Governor John Kasich has a deep yearning that “he needs to be President,” an obsession almost as bad as Hillary’s. The Governor said: “he would represent a different viewpoint, insisting he wants to restore “basic principles of caring, of love, of compassion, of connectedness.” Well, we just got rid of those dysfunctional viewpoints, didn’t we? Ya just can’t keep a good man down, can you?
What he means is that his ‘different viewpoint’ isn’t the one that the imposter Donald Trump, embraces. Kasich clearly believes the polls that shows Trump’s popularity at a low 30% so Trump must be universally hated, not only by the “establishment” but by the citizens who voted for him. That borders on dementia just like Hillary’s. If you believe Trump’s popularity lies at 30%, you should give up reading tea leaves for a living.
Kasich’s ‘different viewpoint’ is the same “compassionate conservatism” BS that George W. Bush championed. It was such an un-conservative point of view that it left the conservative electorate wondering exactly who we were and, it opened the door to the Democrats. We were also suddenly attacked by the dark forces of Islam. It was the 9/11 murders. We were off guard.
Kasich also said “there has to be a fundamental change, in my opinion, with all of us. I’m willing to be part of that (as President). I want my voice to be out there. I want it very, very much.” Fundamental change? Isn’t that exactly what Barack Obama sold enough of us on that he got himself elected twice despite revealing himself as a complete and ultimately incompetent liar, cheat and hypocrite? John Kasich now enters the ranks as a new Progressive.
Since Trumps November 2016 election victory, 4th place runner up John Kasich still pursues a campaign for Trumps job, as a #NeverTrump” darling of the “Establishment.” He insists that Trump was really not who the American people wanted but that Trump was a usurper of the Republican party platform substituting his own “Make America Great Again” plan while ignoring the Party’s principles and advice.
But, Trump is President, and indeed, has started draining the swamp, including republicans. My only observation about that is that Trump never realized just how deep the swamp really was, and despite all the caterwauling from the “elites” including John Kasich, Trump has revealed that the swamp creatures individually are unidentifiable as anything other than corrupted politicians, no matter their party affiliation. Party affiliation only counts at election time. After the election, let the looting continue!
John Kasich reveals himself. Essential to his desire to “restore basic principles of caring, of love, of compassion, of connectedness” is his determination to cling to bipartisanship,with Democrats, to do Americans work. I don’t believe Kasich really knows or understands the enemy he wants to embrace with his “hands across the aisle” nonsense unless he’s one of them. One need only look no further than John McCain, to see and understand the failure of that idea.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
