|All we are saying is give pieces a chance.|
And we're all for it.
This isn't exactly a ringing endorsement of Donald Trump, whom we still think is a loudmouthed boob with sketchy, unworkable ideas and nary a conservative bone in his body. Rather, this is Hope n' Change's declaration of complete and utter revulsion at everything going on in our government, and our long withheld concession that Donald Trump could not possibly - even in complete and utter failure - be as bad for our nation as Hillary Clinton and a continuation of the current insidious, invidious, incestuous anti-American status quo which has rendered our government a dysfunctional mess.
Look at recent news stories. A wildly out of control Supreme Court made abortion easier in the name of women's health, while oxymoronically declaring that it would be unduly burdensome for abortion clinics to meet minimum medical standards to cope with emergencies. The same Supreme Court put their stamp of approval on discriminating against people based on the color of their skin as long as there are "intangible" reasons which the Court finds politically pleasing rather than constitutionally grounded. If Hillary Clinton nominates one or more Justice with liberal ideology, we can kiss the 1st, 2nd, and 5th Amendments goodbye.
Meanwhile, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and DNA-oozing slimeball Bill Clinton "just happened" to get together for a cozy private chat, and claimed that they talked cheerily about grandchildren rather than the ongoing investigation into Hillary's numerous, well-documented crimes. Hope n' Change isn't buying it, and is more inclined to categorize this conversation as overt collusion.
Nor do we think Ms. Lynch's assertion that fighting terror by showing "love and unity" for the jihadists would have prevented the carnage three suicide bombers caused in Turkey. These miscreants don't need a hug, they need a slug - delivered at high velocity and of the largest caliber possible. Nor will "love and unity" prevent the next attack on Americans, or the ones which will surely follow.
And speaking of attacks on Americans, it is the public and political reaction to the final report on the Benghazi fiasco which has finally pushed Hope n' Change over the breaking point and into the Trump camp (albeit kicking and screaming).
There's plenty to complain about, but let's narrow our focus to one critical finding which no one on the Left cares about: the president and Secretary of State of the United States lied repeatedly about the cause and nature of a terror attack which killed Americans, and did so solely for their own political benefit.
Barack Obama lied to protect his campaign slogan: "GM is alive, Bin Laden is dead, and Al Qaeda is on the run." And just to ice the cake, he took this lie to the United Nations where he attacked American freedom of speech as a messy inconvenience, and further stated "the future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam."
Hillary also pushed the Youtube lie, to shield her own presidential aspirations from the fallout over her disastrous policies in the Middle East (creating an instability which nurtured the rise of ISIS) and complete failure as Secretary of State to do anything other than rack up frequent flier miles, collect tiny bottles of booze in-flight, and open our nation's secrets to hackers while selling influence to the highest international bidders.
But when presented with evidence of her gross wrongdoing, Hillary looked with dead eyes straight into the news cameras and said (for the umpteenth time, over the umpteenth scandal) it's time to "move on." Ignore the flag-draped coffins, folks, there's nothing to see here. The woman is like a snake who can unhinge her jaw to cold-bloodedly consume her prey, no matter how large and seemingly hard to swallow.
Meanwhile in Washington, bipartisan funding to fight the nightmarish Zika virus was blocked at the last minute by Harry Reid because the funds would go to mosquito control efforts, hospitals, and health clinics...but not Planned Parenthood. And the Democrats would rather see mothers wracked with pain and illness, and children born with microcephaly, rather than deny taxpayer dollars to abortion mills which, in time-honored quid pro quo fashion, "donate" a percentage of their grant money back to Democrat election campaigns. Your blood-stained tax dollars at work.
And in breaking news, the Pentagon has just announced new rules for embracing transgendered soldiers. And, no doubt, mounting a multi-billion dollar program to provide them with more inclusive latrines even while budgets for actual national defense are cut and cut again.
Enough already. This has got to stop. Choose whatever metaphor you like, but it's time for a bull in the china shop, a hand grenade under the tent flap, or the biggest possible monkey wrench we can jam into the spinning gears of government.
Hope n' Change doesn't believe Trump will really deport millions of illegal immigrants, or stop Muslim immigration into the country. We don't believe his "America first" trade policies will work (in fact, we think they'd cause a reduction in the American standard of living and wreak economic chaos). We're not even sure he can build his fabled wall, let alone get Mexico to pay for it.
But we also don't believe that Trump wants to destroy important American values. We don't think he's corrupt. We don't think he's evil. We don't think he's owned by special interests. And we don't think he's lying about loving this country, its citizens, or his desire to make America great again.
A continuation of Barack Obama's policies and liberal appointments to the Supreme Court will, we believe, be the death blow to an America that really was great...and which still has a scintilla of a chance of being great again.
Donald Trump is potentially a yuuuuge disrupter at a time when our political system needs huge disruption. Our nation would be far more likely to survive his probable policy failures than even a single term of Hillary Clinton's toxic policy successes.
Which is why we plan to cast a "Breaks It" vote for Trump in November. There is a lot that needs breaking.
