Mitt Romney and his cohorts are embarking on an extremely dangerous course. They don’t like Donald Trump, who is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States. They certainly don’t respect the will of the people who voted for Mr. Trump in the primaries. They obviously think that they should be the ones to make the choice of who the Republican nominee should be. To accomplish their goal of shutting down Donald Trump, they are pursuing an effort to establish a third party with a candidate of their liking. Some of Romney’s buddies in this endeavor include Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, Erick Erickson, Red State.com editor and strategists Mike Murphy, Stuart Stevens, and Rick Wilson.
Why Mitt Romney is pursuing this so-called project is difficult to understand. Does he really believe that Donald Trump would be so disastrous for this country after eight years of the Obama Socialist regime? Is there an unknown personal vendetta? Or has he succumbed to a mental disorder? Mr. Romney had his chance in 2012 and he blew it. He ran an extremely weak campaign and rarely asked Barack Obama the hard questions. So now it’s time for him to stop demeaning and fighting Trump, support him and help to unite the party.
There are many reasons why a third party would be disastrous…and anyone who is looking at this situation logically can see why it’s a terrible idea. First, and most important, creating a third party would, in fact, end up giving the presidency to Hillary Clinton. Now, THAT would be a real disaster. Taking votes away from Trump might satisfy the egos and petty dislikes that the Romney bunch has for The Donald, but it would certainly propel Hillary right into the White House. This would give us an administration which I can only describe as the Obama administration on steroids. This would not be good for the American people.
Next, it defies the will of all the Republicans who voted for Trump in the primaries. Who does Romney and Company think they are? The people have picked Trump, so live with it and shut up.
Those involved in this push to stop Trump do not appear to care about the fate of the American people, the Republic and our Constitution. Do these people even care that the United States would continue to plunge lower and lower if Hillary Clinton became the president? She would definitely carry out many of Obama’s unpopular laws, rules, and regulations and would probably think up some of her own…which we wouldn’t like. She definitely would continue the march to a Socialist state and would complete Obama’s fundamental transformation of America.
This is not only not acceptable, it is tragic. The “stop Trump gang” should consider what’s important and good for America, not the satisfaction of their selfish little wants and desires. They need to stop this third party foolishness and assist in uniting the Republican party so that Trump can win in November. This may be our last chance to retain the republic.
