Why you should vote for Trump, even if you can’t stand him

A Preventable Trump Dilemma

Jeff Hogan

 

Our presidential voting dilemma and shallow debate regarding both Trump and Clinton is due to a century of voters and state legislators failing to be the intended counterbalance to the central government and failing to deploy their Article V obligation to amend the U.S. Constitution.

But we can vote AGAINST progressive totalitarianism. If you don’t view the last eight years as an assault on our founding principles, by all means, continue to betray this only society in history based on self-evident truths and ordered liberty, and vote for Hillary Clinton.

I’d rather be nauseated about a candidate’s character than see the Constitution further annihilated, increased Supreme Court judicial lawless activism, perilous overspending, federally-imposed Common Core, domestic energy stifled, taxation worsened, the military laid waste, small businesses collapsing under the weight of overregulation, political corruption multiply, welfare recipients’ increasingly stigmatized, terrorism increased, freedom of religion and traditional values nearly outlawed, inflamed race-baiting, identity politicizing, unabated abortion epidemic, farcical anthropomorphic global warming policies bankrupting our country, pathetic international weakness, surrendering to the U.N.’s globalist Agenda 21 communitarianism, law and order continue to decline and the best healthcare system in the world blighted by Obamacare.

We need to be responsibly informed about all these assaults on the principles undergirding American exceptionalism.

Why do most people not realize these assaults are being aggressively advanced?  If they were more alert, they wouldn’t have helped elect President Obama by refusing to vote for McCain and Romney.

Welcome to the exact results of 100 years of American citizens’ and state legislators’ violating their obligation to deploy the Constitution’s Article V power to reign-in tyrannical government (fully anticipated by the Constitution’s drafters, despite the fact that they carefully enumerated only thirty powers to Congress) and elevate our political discourse to objective constitutional interpretation and natural law principles rather than trivial, juvenile, scurrilous debate, with voters now cathartically beating their chests about a candidate’s lack of character.

Conservatives’ have been comatose since Teddy Roosevelt’s genesis of Progressivism, until now the government / public schools / academia / mainstream media / popular culture have become so complicit in diminishing their freedoms, and so ethically debased, that many of them have overreacted by nominating a politically incorrect bombastic candidate whom they thought could reverse our descent into Socialism.

Our founders provided a Constitutional self-repair tool in Article V to prevent central government’s theft of local and state powers.  Six of the needed 34 states so far have passed resolutions to hold a convention to propose Constitutional amendments.

A century of government perverting it’s limited purpose by becoming agents of “social justice” could have been prevented if state legislators had reinforced and amended the Constitution (they have the same ability as Congress and have attempted it hundreds of times) to restrict executive orders, impose Congressional single terms (wiping out preoccupation with fund raising and terminating the permanent ruling class), prohibiting lifetime appointments to the Supreme Court, restoring power to the states to overturn unconstitutional decisions by Congress and the Supreme Court, stopping the pervasive faulty application of the Commerce and General Welfare Clause).

We’ve relinquished self-government to the statists.  Take back your birthright.  Get educated.  Get active.  Ask your state reps why they refuse to enforce and restore the U.S.  Constitution using their Article V powers.

There are people who think that Trump is a monster, like that out-of-control animal terrorizing your otherwise peaceful neighborhood.  I could point out that his reputation has been unfairly attacked by his opponents, but many people I know simply do not like him – or trust him.  For those people, I offer this simple thought.

Let us say Trump really is a monster.  Hillary is just as bad – actually, much worse.  Let us concede, then, that no matter who wins in November, the White House will be occupied by a monster.  Our only hope, then, is a strong leash – a system of constraints that will limit the damage the monster can do.

With Trump, there will be a leash.  The media will oppose him at every turn.  So will the opposition party.   Members of his own party are already standing up to him.

But with Hillary, there will be no leash.  The media will not constrain her – and neither will any members of her own party.  She has violated many laws, and instead of investigating and prosecuting, those who should indict her are spearheading the cover-up.  If Hillary becomes president, they will turn a blind eye to her abuses, and they will cheer her on as she terrorizes the neighborhood.

We have a choice in this election.  If you see little difference between the two monsters, then look at the leash.  Vote for the one who will be kept on the leash.  Vote for Trump.
