…and I’ve probably got change coming…

Like you, I can speculate with the best of them, from rational rantings to tin-hat-society way-out-there-in-space conspiracies, on what’s going to happen in this year’s election.  And like you, I haven’t a clue as to the outcome, but I do know what should not happen for the good of the American People.

The Hildebeast cannot win.

For countless years, people have been complaining about the corruption of politicians, and yet when presented with in-your-face proof that Felonia Von Pantsuit is the most obviously corrupt politician ever to run for the office of President, will still vote for her.  The polls state that she is not trusted by a majority of the American people, and yet still maintaining a small lead over her Republican opponent.  I would like to gently remind those people who complain about the political corruption and are still voting for the Hildebeast –

It is absolutely unrealistic and insane to expect change when you keep voting for the same corrupt politicians.

While Trump isn’t perfect by any means, he’s a damn sight better than the Hildebeast.  I already know that if he is elected, both Houses of Congress will hold him accountable for his policies and actions because both Democrats and Republicans cannot stand him.  He would most likely be a one-term President (a place-holder) unless the American People benefit immensely from the policies he institutes in the four years after his election. 

If the Hildebeast is elected, she will get a pass on almost anything she does, and We The People will suffer immensely.  All one has to do is look at the history of her scandals, past and present, to know that she it in it for herself and her agenda, and damned be anyone that gets in her way.  And forget about here being indicted after being elected (or maybe even not) – she’ll either be pardoned by the outgoing O’Bummer or use her executive power to make it all go away.

And we’ve seen what the Democrats will do if they get a majority – pass more disasters like Obamacare that solve nothing, give the government more power over our lives, and screw us over in the process.

So whatever you need to do to get yourself through voting Republican this year – an adult beverage, clothespins, etc… – do not vote for the Hildebeast or any of her Democrat minions.

*** UPDATE ***

What follows is a post from Constitutio Fidelis titled “Will the Republic Survive One More Election?

This article is written to convince you, the reader, that the Democratic candidate MUST NOT WIN the 2016 election for President of the United States of America.

It does not matter whether you are a Democrat or Republican, Libertarian or Bernie supporter, never-Trumper or a stay at home protest voter. It doesn’t matter who the Democratic candidate is, whether Hillary Clinton or some replacement if she somehow does not finish the race. The bottom line is the Democratic candidate MUST NOT WIN.

The United States is NOT a democracy. It is a representative republic. The people do not vote on each law at the national level. They do not write laws directly. The people elect representatives and the chief executive to do that work and handle the day-to-day operation of the Federal government. The elected officials are replaced or continue then at the will of the people at each election.

That form of government is at stake in 2016. We are on the brink. This election is different from any presidential election the country has ever had. A non-reversible change will occur if the Democratic candidate wins in 2016. Our three branches of government will continue in show only but will be converted into an effective tyranny.

But how will this happen?

As we all should know but some may not, our representative republic was created as three branches of government with what we call a “system of checks and balances.”

Here it is in simple terms.

The president is the day-to-day executive, running the military, representing the government internationally, and managing Federal operations.

The Congress writes laws and approves budgets, taxation, and treaties. The president can veto their laws, and the Congress can, in turn, override the president’s veto and other actions.

The third branch is the Supreme Court. It does not stand for election but consists of nine members appointed for life in order to provide a level of stability and immunity from electoral politics. The president and Congress check the power of the Supreme Court by being the ones who appoint its members and remove its members if necessary. The Supreme Court checks the power of the president and Congress by being able to overturn virtually anything they do.

It is a simple and ingenious system created by the founders of the United States. They were leery of creating an all powerful Federal government. Having just overthrown a tyrant king, they wanted a system that could never devolve into tyranny.

In reality there is a FOURTH branch of the republic that exists. It is the foundation that everything else depends on. Its destruction will clear the way to a very rapid descent into tyranny.

This fourth branch is the Constitution of the United States. The constitution is how the founders established the other three branches and the checks and balances as described above. It governs what the other three branches can and cannot do and legitimizes their power over the people.

The Constitution is not a “living document” as the political elite would have us believe. It says what it says and was meant to function as though set in stone. Yet, it is subject to checks and balances too. The president and the Supreme Court are meant to be obedient servants to and defenders of the Constitution as set forth in the Constitution itself. The Congress too is subject to the Constitution. But the Congress, the states, and the people have several options to actually change the “set in stone” words of the Constitution if deemed necessary. This is designed to be a difficult thing to do, requiring overwhelming support at the different stages of the process.

The key point here is that the Constitution establishes the power of the other three branches and governs them absolutely. But, not being in human form, just mere words on paper, it cannot actually do anything to enforce its power. In practice, it relies on the Supreme Court to do that.

When the Supreme Court decides to completely and permanently ignore the Constitution, then the Constitution will effectively cease to exist. At that point, the Supreme Court becomes the ultimate power and can sanction and uphold any action by the president or Congress, or strike down any such action.

An alliance of the majority of the 535 members of Congress and the majority of the nine members of the Supreme Court can rule over the people any way they choose. Elections can be reduced to a Soviet style event for show only, manipulated to achieve the desired outcome every time. The president can be limited and overruled at will. And, if the president is part of this alliance, the descent into tyranny becomes absolute and complete. A tyranny by 545 people is still a tyranny.

The Supreme Court now sits with 8 members instead of 9. Four of these members are solidly there for one reason and one reason only: not to uphold the constitution but to sanction and further the will of their Democratic Party masters. The very next appointee, to fill the vacancy recently left by the death of Justice Scalia, can provide the fifth Democratic Party puppet justice, giving them the majority needed to begin the absolute destruction of the fourth branch of government, the Constitution. This, in turn, is the beginning of tyranny and the end of the republic.

The president elected in 2016 will choose a new member of the Supreme Court. Yes, the appointee must be approved by Congress, but we all know that if the Democratic candidate wins she (or he) will get the chosen appointee eventually. A Democratic president is simply never going to nominate a defender of the Constitution, and the Republicans in Congress will not hold the vacancy open for four to eight years waiting for a president who will appoint one. So, the next president will fill that vacancy, period.

In addition to that, of the four members of the Supreme Court who, for the most part, still uphold the Constitution, one or more will likely be replaced during the term of the president elected in 2016. If that president is the Democratic candidate, then the process above will be repeated to fill such vacancies and create a super majority of puppet justices that will never be undone in time to save the Republic.

Whether you, the reader, are a loyal Democrat, a Republican, a Libertarian, or even a Socialist, the absolute rule of this nation by a majority of 545 people with no more checks and balances will not serve your vision for the country. These rulers will be unaccountable to the people in every way. The only sense of order and power will be theirs. Whenever that kind of absolute power has existed in the history of this world, it has never benefited the people or freedom. It always ends badly, if it ends at all.

This is not a partisan issue. The problem is those thirsty for such power have a near total hold on the free press and the Democratic Party. The press is not a watchdog working for the people any longer. And, the Democratic Party is not the “party of the little guy” any more. These two are simply in it for their power and that alone. No principles are left except for public manipulation purposes. No matter what you believe in, these people are NOT your champions and defenders. Their team must win, and that is all that matters to them.

Sadly, the Republican party consists of many who would rather be a part of that team than to see it defeated. As illogical as it is, they actually see a role for themselves in this coming system of absolute post-Constitutional power.

How do we ultimately stop this? I do not know. It will take time and will require the people to come to their senses. This election is not about stopping it for good. It is well under way and too massive to stop cold in its tracks.

The 2016 election is simply about not reaching the point of no return. If the Democrat wins and controls the Supreme Court, the Constitution is gone.

Therefore, the only issue, the single issue of this election is that the Democratic candidate, whoever it is, MUST NOT WIN the presidency in 2016.

As much as you might disagree with his stand on many things, it is fair to say that the Libertarian candidate for president certainly would not be a part of the cabal to lock down control of the Supreme Court. The problem is with so many loyal Democratic and Republican party voters, there is simply ZERO CHANCE the Libertarian candidate will win the Presidency in 2016. ZERO! It is a great fantasy if you want to have it, but it is not within the realm of possibility. As such, it does not provide a means of insuring that the Democratic candidate does not win.

The same is true of all the other lesser party options that exist with similar or even smaller support than the Libertarian candidate.

For all his unarguable flaws, for all the crazy circumstances that have brought us to him, Donald Trump is the ONLY candidate that has a non-zero chance of stopping a Democratic victory in 2016.

You can hate him. You can disagree with him. You can not be in his party. You can say he is a nut and inexperienced. It does not matter. He will not nominate puppet Supreme Court justices for the powers of tyranny and he has at least a chance of winning the election. That is all that matters now.

This is not like other election where we have to choose the lesser of two evils; hold our noses and vote. I truly believe the wrong choice this time, the worse of the two evils, is the final straw.

If you believe in the republic of the United States of America and want it to continue, you need to put aside everything else and vote for Donald Trump. He is not my desired candidate. He has a lot of weaknesses. And, to be fair, he is an accomplished man in the terms of this world. But, however much I agree with him on some things and disagree on others, he must win for this nation to avoid reaching the point of no return.

We can deal with any issues that come up during Trump’s term. What you oppose about him, you can fight through the normal political processes. But, if we go over the brink to tyranny, there will be no chance to turn it back. A Trump victory is not the cure. He is not the conservative champion many of us want. He is not the devil his opponents fear. He is a means to buy us more time to continue the political process; to make our cases liberal or conservative, libertarian or socialist.

Americans are routinely polled as saying the country is going down the wrong road. In November of 2016, you help choose whether we make the final turn down the final wrong road or keep looking for the right road.

  1. Well said. The two choices are not bad and worse this time. It is guaranteed major destruction (any Democrat) vs Trump and we make it through four years somehow at worst or something actually gets done right along the way at best (like some decent court appointments high and low). Please see my one blog post.

    Thank you, constitutiofidelis! Have read your excellent post, and will add it to this one.

  3. This post is well put and well thought out. And using the article from ConstitutioFedilis was a good choice. Great post Tom.
