Now before all you #NeverTrump people starting hitting the like and share button, or you #CruzCrew starting leaving nasty comments hear me out. Hillary is not cheering because she is licking her chops to go up against Trump in the general election. In fact I think she is in a state of panic. She is running to every closet in all her homes pushing those skeletons back as far as they can go. She’ll be hiding them behind rhetoric of how horrible of a woman hating racist Trump is all with the help of her super pack the media. It’s not that Trump is unbeatable or easily beaten. She is cheering because she knows she is not going to have the full power of the Republican voice against her. She is cheering because the math says if the #NeverTrump folks jump ship I am home free regardless of any email scandal or Benghazi cover up.
We as Republicans have yet to learn the secret sauce of the Democrats and that is unity. We refuse to put aside difference (big or small) and stand united. We quarrel and point fingers just lining the pockets of our true opponents, the DNC, with sound bite after sound bite, and story after story. We have started the last to Presidential elections with more possible candidates then we have fingers. We bicker and fight and pander until we alienate ourselves from ourselves. We make drastic claims and dig up every ounce of dirt until we have vested our faith and vote to a candidate and not the goal, which is getting back into the White House. When the dust settles we see a much deeper and drastic line in our party then we have had over the past two elections against the democrats, which gave us Barak Obama. I wonder if we will learn.
I am not a Trumpster by any means as he has said and done things I just don’t agree with. However I would be a bald face liar if I said there was any candidate that hasn’t. I am reminded of a decision I had to make when dealing with a situation at work. I was in immediate need of a vendor that could provide a service that I couldn’t do myself. The internal vetting and due diligence processes would have taken too long to find a new vendor so I was forced to look at the vendors we already had on the books. It became quickly apparent only two companies could provide the service I needed and neither of them would have been my 1st or even 5th choice. Needless to say the company was in need right now so a choice had to be made. I did the classic pro’s and con’s assessment. Hells even pulled out my Green Belt and Post-it notes. Through all of that, when it came down to it I felt the same as I did before, unsure and unhappy.
I had to choose and choose fast because we were on a path that needed to be course corrected and this service was unavoidable. So in the end I sat down with my team and talked about not the pros but the cons. Not our feeling, or our emotions, or our ideals, but the cons of each vendor. In the end we had a clear vendor that we could not go with, and in the process selected the vendor we would go with. We knew there were still sore spots and possible pitfalls, but we were ready for them and prepared to handle them. We knew we would have to hold that vendor accountable, and be more then mindful of how they did their work. This exercise as painful and as hard as it was resulted in us being able to move forward. To be prepared and to ensure we never got here again. We achieved our goals and in the process became better managers and the vendor became better as well.
If I have to spell out the correlation there then… well you’re probably a Sanders supporter. We have to remember in life it isn’t always about getting our way. It is about getting the best we can with what we are given. If we refuse to see that common sense logic then we are sure to see another Clinton in the White House. She is someone that plans to build off of and carry on Obama’s legacy. Someone that is willing to let our true patriots dies with no sense of ownership or remorse. Someone that will use every ounce of power she has to change the very Constitution this great nation was born from. So if you are ok with that then by all means, write in someone’s name, vote for a 3rd party, or refuse to vote at all. However do it knowing that the Democrats will not. Whether Bernie or Hillary they will be at the poles, united and voting against us. Facts are facts and numbers are numbers and that is a formula where we can’t win. So stop writing your post November “Blame Trump” speech and stand straight in front of the mirror and tell it to yourself if you refuse to stand up against Hillary in any and every way possible.
