Trumps negatives not 1/100th of Hillary's

Reader comment on item: What's a Conservative to Do? Vote for Pence

Daniel, why are you so fixated on Trump's negatives? So he joked about how easy women are when you are rich and famous. Hillary systematically sold the nation's foreign policy to the highest bidder, with monies deposited in her family bank account, and to hide it from the public she set up from day one an illegal email system that compromised the heart of U.S. intelligence. She plotted from the beginning to sell U.S. power for personal gain.

What else: her closest advisor is Muslim Brotherhood royalty. She is an actual literal Alinsky-communist, mentored by Alinsky himself. She explicitly backs the Islamofascist Black Lives Matter movement against the police. (Remember how the original Black Panthers all converted to Islam and took Arabic names? The New Black Panthers are also NOI, and so is BLM.) Most obviously, for anyone who actually cares about character, she is a viciously vindictive woman who will use every power of government to attack her political enemies and could easily end our system of liberty forever. But you, Daniel, are fixated on what bad things Trump MIGHT do, just because you find his manner vulgar and distasteful. Are you insane?

Glad you found a way to rationalize voting for the necessary candidate but why overlook Trump's positives? He wants to stop unvetted Islamic immigration! (You care about that, right?) He wants to stop illegal immigration period. He is for gun rights (the lack of which will soon be responsible for the mass slaughter of non-Muslims in Europe). He will appoint constitutionalists to the Supreme Court. He understands that the alarm about CO2 is a massive scientific fraud, bought by thirty years of 100% political funding of climate research. And he would repeal Obamacare. Cruz or Fiorina or almost anybody would be better on the economy but economic policy is Congress' job anyway.

... Lincoln's judgment of Grant is much more appropriate here: "I like him, HE FIGHTS." THAT is what we need. Someone who will fight back against the leftist takeover of all of our information industries. As a businessman and media personality with wide engagement with the American people Trump knows that our political elites and our media elites do not represent the majority but are far far to the left of it.

That understanding is crucial right now and is close to non-existent among Republican politicians, 95% of whom are in thrall to the Democrat-media complex. Pence? Maybe he is ok, but he isn't the one who had the balls to grab the silent-majority by coming out big against illegal and Muslim immigration. The Democrats know that this mass immigration of unskilled Muslims and illegals is monstrously destructive to those already at the bottom of the economic ladder in America but they don't care. They just want to import these huge numbers that they can put directly on welfare, turning them into bought and paid for Democratic Party voters. They know that the silent majority is more conservative so they are trying to import a new majority and blacks and working class Americans be damned.

Contempt for Trump is contempt for that huge center of the conservative base who KNOW why they voted for the man. ...
