Most football games are won by slogging it on the field, five yards, ten yards, two yards at a time, and losing ground in-between.
Republicans have lost ground all the way along. No wins. NONE. That is a statistical impossibility.
Conservatives NEVER win by a brilliant running game. Not once have we won that way. To expect that the conservatives are going to field the perfect team and never give up ground once the team is on the field is too much to expect of any human endeavor.
Perhaps. But one could start from the position of 'Do no harm'... But not even that - Y'all support Big.gov... Not only is there not a reversal, even a small one, when Republicans get into power, there is expansion of the federal beast. And Tumpy is no different. The first to go under the bus are the ficons and the civcons - And again, Tumpy is no different.
The Rodents didn't get where they are by a single effort. No. They got to the Big Steal by LIFETIMES of incessant efforts to undermine society and rot it out from within.
Nah, they got there because they had no opposition. All y'all feign opposition, but you tell a tree by its fruit, and your tree is big.gov, and there is no denying it.
Conservatives aren't going to fix it in a day, in a year, in a single presidential term or in six presidential terms.
And they're certainly not going to fix it in one presidential term if the president gets no support and no conservative advice from his team in Congress.
Did Trump get any Conservative advice (in the form of bills and proposals to fight for) from the leadership of either house? Not once.
Conservatives are not going to fix anything, because folks like y'all supplanted them. More Conservatives are outside the Republican party than in it. Which is why I favor putting my efforts into the CP. No sense in putting anymore effort into Republicans. That dog don't hunt, and worse then that, he bites me every chance he gets.
To blame Trump is a fool's game. If Trump had been given a truly conservative agenda to fight for by conservatives in House and Senate, Trump would have been far more successful than his already impressive presidency was.
Trump had no help.
Poor little Tumpy. He can't help it... Everbody's pickin on him...
But he fights
And y'all claim I chase windmills
Yes I can blame Tumpy. Not that I blame him exclusively, but he was at the top and the buck always stops at the top. If you are a businessman, you will admit that. And while I very much admit he had no help from Republicans, and that they are at fault, Part of his promise, part of his JOB is to lead his party. That ain't the 'kiss the ring' thing y'all demand... It is forming coalitions and cutting deals, and bringing folks together to move forward. That is what leading is, and if he could not get that done, as he vowed he could do - Well that is on him... Just as much as anyone, if not more.
And y'all get the blame too in that - Filling the Republican party with RINOs because of 'lesser evil' thinking is your (y'all) fault... Had the Congress been in control of Conservatives instead of moderates... Had the RINOs been but a handful and the Conservatives the majority, perhaps he'd have had more to work with... But then, if Conservatives were in power, he would not have been necessary either.
Those damn Chrysophobics
That's really funny. A whole lot of my gear is orange and black... My watch has orange in the bezel... as a hunter, I love camo, but hunter orange is on a lot of my gear... And my favorite color on pickups is Hugger Orange. The one in my yard was meant to go that color - I even have the paint for it on the shelf in the kitchen...
So no, I am fine with orange. I ain't fine with liberal big.gov. Especially on the right.
