If the GOP was actually a serious party, Trump would be pretty easy to get rid of

RINOs bitching about Trump never cease to amaze me. All they would have to defeat him is run to his right on the issues. Vaccines, spending, immigration, trade, social issues, liberty issues, patriot act, etc.

But no, instead they think they just want to go after him because of his demeanor or style. No one cares, and no one is going to settle for a watered down technocratic globalist .

Trump continues to exist in the complete void that is the GOP, as there is no one else willing to fill that space. The GOP worried about Trump, just put Mitch McConnell back in power. They really just need to shut up and sit this one out.

Even if they do, populism and nationalism won’t vanish.

In this poster’s opinion, I propose that there’s been a very consequential change in rightist voters. That would be a shift in general approach to political matters and topics involving the political intersecting with everyday life. It’s simply a matter of an overall shift from a principles-driven approach….to….a pragmatism-driven approach. I believe vastly more people just want the ever intensifying problems directly affecting them in very serious ways, they just want them to go away. And by whatever means necessary, pretty much. Which might at times be in conflict with a given principle or principles.

That’s not what many folks, notably quite a few amongst us here, not music to their ears, to put it mildly. But again, only my view of it, more and more people are becoming more and more affected in ways they previously thought were immune to in one way or another. How does this relate to the specific thread topic? It’s that Trump was an inevitability, and despite the very best efforts and tactics possibly available, he hasn’t and isn’t going anywhere.

If they had done their job he would have never run for office.

I like some things about Trump.

But he barely beat HRC and then he lost to an idiot that hid in his basement.

Maybe he should sit one out and let someone else have a try.

Trump’s electoral deficiencies have nothing to do with policy and everything to do with his inability to keep his mouth shut when appropriate.

The problem is Trump threatens them for some reason. If he didn’t, you wouldn’t hear his name mentioned. But, the media, GOPe and democrats continuously talk about a president that hasn’t been in office for about two years. He broke them and know once back in office he will tear all of the power, that they have longed for, away from them.

Run too far right and you'll lose the general election.

That's because, despite all of Trump's flaws, he is actually serious about doing the things he talks about. If the GOP was actually serious about doing the things they talk about (like repealing Obamacare) there never would have been a Trump.

I like Ron D. I think he can continue to make Florida the best state in the country. Ron’s relationship with Ken Griffin and Griffin’s relationship with Xi Jinping is an issue at the federal level. It’s a bad marriage. Coupled with the fact most Trump supporters feel Trump was robbed and deserves a second term, it’s a bad decision.

As a Christian, there are a lot of things about Trump that bother me, but it’s hard to sell me on how bad he is as a President because of his personality flaws when Democrats as a party are worse on that front, seeking to destroy all their enemies (including voters) personally, and say the most vile lies to get what they want, even if it means destroying the country.

Ah, “populism” … the politics of appealing to the least-intelligent and most-ignorant of the populace.

Too far, Hankster. Condescension is a tough pill to swallow. You’re armed plenty well enough to not have to go there.

As opposed to what our current system of "democracy" or whatever they call it is? Is sweeping homeless camps, housing projects, college campuses, and nursing homes for ballots supposed to get us a higher IQ electorate?

Davy, I understand what you are saying, but I have utter contempt for populists.

Populism is not an ideology. It is simply seeking the lowest common denominator.

I can respect social conservatives, though I don’t like them. I can even respect the far left, though I do not like them, either.

But populists are simply cynical demagogues.

Griffin gave a ton of money to Trump

If the GOP was a serious party then Trump would have never run in 2016
