The Monday Thought
There has been much sturm und drang recently about the issue of abortion as it relates to the future of the Republican Party.
"Surrender to the left to defeat the left" is the galaxy brained thinking that got this country in this mess to start with. It also relates back what I wrote back in August about the bleak future of the GOP.
The reason why so many “National Conservatives” are so ambivalant to the issue of abortion has everything to do with Donald Trump, a pro-abortion liberal who absconded with the Republican Party. And voters, who see Trump as the kind of “do as I say, not as I do” libertine that everybody loves to hate, are tired of the charade.
How bad are things for the Republican Party right now? This bad.
Trump can only eek out 35% of the vote in a hypothetical three-way race involving himself, a liberal Democratic incumbent, and a cuckoo-for-Cocoa Puffs leftist who happens to be a conspiracy theorist.
The election is ripe for the taking for a sane Republican, and yet Donald Trump remains the Republican frontrunner.
As I wrote in August:
This is what the future of the Republican Party looks like unless something changes quickly. It’s more memes, more pussyfooting with fascism, and more party leaders who eschew conservative values for Trump’s big-government, statist “National Conservative.” And more election losses will follow.
