Suicide of GOP — or its rebirth? by Pat Buchanan, who predicts Trump “could beat Hillary Clinton like a drum in November.” The USA tends to lead world trends — how long before something like this happens in Australia?
[O]nly the fear that Trump can win explains the hysteria in this city. Here is the Washington Post of March 18: “As a moral question it is straightforward. The mission of any responsible Republican should be to block a Trump nomination and election.”
Beautiful. Defending democracy requires Republicans to cancel the democratic decision of the largest voter turnout of any primaries in American history.
The Republican Party is being reborn:
Those Republicans who assert that a Trump nomination would be a moral stain, a scarlet letter, the death of the party, they are most likely describing what a Trump nomination would mean to their own ideologies and interests. …
Republican strength today, on Capitol Hill and in state offices, is at levels unseen since Calvin Coolidge.
Out with the old:
[Republican] Talking heads are bobbing up on cable TV to declare that if Trump is nominee, they will not vote for him and may vote for Clinton.
This is not unwelcome news. Let them go.
