George S. Bardmesser speaks for a lot of normal Americans.
Itâ€™s a damn shame I have to wait another 20 months to vote for President Trump. I wish I could do it now. Twice. Or better yet, in as many jurisdictions as I can. Preferably in every swing district and every swing state.
Yeah, yeah, I know â€” sadly, I canâ€™t. Itâ€™s been a hell of a ride these past couple of years, and I sure hope it doesnâ€™t end next November.
I am a middle-of-the-road Republican who voted for Trump with the utmost reluctance in 2016. He sure wasnâ€™t perfect. He was no Cicero, eitherâ€“â€“though he can give a decent speech when the chips are down. He had a few extra skeletons rattling in his closet, especially compared to colorless non-entities like Jeb. So yeah, I was queasy about voting for an ex-registered-Democrat-from-New-York-and-possible-liberal-now-turned-Republican.
Was I worried? Hell, yeah! Was I depressed? You bet. But, really, what options were there? Hillary? Jill Stein? Seriously? Trump wasnâ€™t my first choice or my second choice or my third choice, but by the time November 2016 rolled around, Trump was the only choice on the menu. So I swallowed hard, took a leap of faith, and pulled the lever for the Donald.
And let me tell ya, every time one of these newly minted Democratic â€œstarsâ€ opens their mouth, the same thought goes through my mind: Thank God for Trump. Trump is my last line of defense. Trump is the only thing that stands between me and these hallucinogenic socialist nut jobs. Trump is whatâ€™s keeping chaos and left-wing insanity at bay. …
The Donkey Party has a new leader: someone called Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Every time her bright red lips form a sentence, I hear a clarion call: Must Vote For Trump! Unlike AOC, I actually know firsthand what socialism is. I donâ€™t need to imagine the future that AOC is trying to shove down my throatâ€“â€“I lived in that future and I pray Iâ€™ll never have to live in that future again.
Every time AOC proposes to build trains to Europe, or wants butt plugs for cows to control their flatulence, or wants to spend $93 trillion on fairyland, I really, really want to vote for Trump. So make Ocasio-Cortez more visible! Make Ocasio-Cortez speaker of the House! Make her the keynote speaker at the convention!
All the CNN talking heads agree that Trump is an idiot? Maybe, but at least he isnâ€™t planning to ban my car. Trump lies? Maybe, but with Trump, weâ€™ll still have airplanes (and my 401(k) plan has been doing great since his election).
This gets us to the next installment of â€œFriday the 13th,â€ a.k.a. the Democratic presidential candidates. Kamala Harris, you say? You seriously want me to vote for Kamala Harris? And you say that Cory â€œSpartacusâ€ Booker is just like Kamala, only better and balder? Are you kidding me? Pete Buttigieg? Ask me again when I stop laughing.
Bernie? Really? This grumpy near-octogenarian â€œpublic serviceâ€ millionaire with three mansions is running for the presidency of the wrong country. All his best ideas have already been put into practiceâ€“â€“in Venezuela.
This is a guy who pseudo-honeymooned in the USSR (two years before it collapsed!), and didnâ€™t notice that people were waiting in mile-long lines for literally everything. This is a guy who has never met a paleo-Stalinist dictator he couldnâ€™t be best pals with. Bernie doesnâ€™t need to pretend he is a complete crank; he is a complete crank.
I will personally call every one of my friends, neighbors, and acquaintances, and beg them to vote for Trump. I will even offer to come and wash their cars while in the nude, if only theyâ€™d vote for Trump.
Did someone say Warren? Warren, the first Cherokee candidate â€” that Warren? Doesnâ€™t she now want reparations not just for African-Americans, but also for Native Americans? Where, oh where, is that lever to pull for Trump?
Biden? The creepy old guy who likes to massage women and 13-year-old girls in public? That guy? I have a 19-year-old daughter, and I sure hope he never goes anywhere near her. But I do hope he runs. It feels like heâ€™s been running for president in every election since Eisenhower. Can he lurch far enough to the left this time, to satisfy the woke police? I doubt it, but it will be fun to watch him try.
Ilhan Omar? Maybe she should run for president too. Nancy suggests that Omar is a good person who is simply too ignorant to understand what her words mean. I disagree. Omar is only saying what all the other Democrats are thinking. Yes, she is an anti-Semite. Yes, she is totally mainstream within the Democratic Party.
Throw that toxic Tlaib person into the mix, and weâ€™ve got the triumvirate that truly runs the Democratic Party nowâ€“â€“Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and Tlaib. I see this nutterfest, and let me tell you, dear Democrats: I am motivated as hell. If ever given a choice (in this election or in other ones) between Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, Pelosi, Warren, Harris, Booker, Biden, Sanders, or Trump, I will take Trump any day of the week.
I am a highly motivated Trump voter because the Democrats have motivated me up to my eyeballs. I have never been more motivated in my life, because the Democrats are terrifying me. I am locked, cocked, and ready to rock in that voting booth. I just wish I didnâ€™t have to wait 20 months.
