As certain as SMOD the GOP is dead

If we looked in a telescope and saw a 300-mile-wide asteroid headed right toward Earth’s orbit to smack us in the kisser, we could do the math and determine if it’s really going to hit us. And if we knew it was going to hit us, we could predict with nearly 100 percent accuracy that all human life on the planet would end.

It’s called an Extinction Level Event (ELE).

The GOP looked into a telescope in 2015 and saw Donald Trump. The difference is that the GOP didn’t have to follow an orbital path toward its own destruction. But it did, in a deadly dance with destiny. Mathematically, they knew this was coming: The GOP’s ELE.

I wrote in December 2015:

The final Whig president of the United States was Millard Filmore in 1853.  He marked the death of the Whigs, and the rise of the Know-Nothings.  Today the GOP faces its own death, and the continued success of Donald Trump in the polls reflects the fact that the Republican Party is staring into its own grave.

I wasn’t being prophetic, or demonstrating some Gnostic power to foretell the future. I was just looking in a telescope, the same as anyone else could have done.

Donald Trump’s message resonates with many Republicans because he speaks what most of us know, and doesn’t hold his tongue or make excuses for our elected representatives’ failure to deal with immigration problems over the last three decades our failure to end the rise of Islamic terrorism, and our failure to keep the American economy growing.

But Trump’s promises are nothing but Styrofoam—light-weight and filling lots of volume.  When heat is applied to Styrofoam, it evaporates, leaving a void.  If nothing fills the void, the party will fall of its own weight.  It’s nobody’s fault but our own if Trump destroys the GOP—and he very well could (take this seriously).

I am not the only one who saw it. Susan Wright also observed ELE coming to smack the GOP in the kisser.

I have a different take. The Democrats have already won. They played the game masterfully. Republicans would have never of thought of sending in one of their own, a lifelong conservative, with a solid record of backing socially and fiscally conservative causes and candidates, to register as a Democrat and then run on the Democrat ticket.

And now we know. It has come to pass.

Now is the time for a conservative third party option to emerge. The time has come and to not take this leap of faith may very well consign our nation to certain ruin. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

I only disagree on one point. It’s not desperate to move to a third party. It’s rational, like evacuating from the path of a Category 4 hurricane bearing down on your home. Even GOP legislators are starting to abandon the party. It’s bad, and I believe it’s unrecoverable. It’s an ELE.

The Trump SMOD ELE was perfectly predictable for the GOP. It’s time to move to a different party before everything dies.

Serial entrepreneur. Faith, family, federal republic. One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

    Some knob has reported every page on your site as unsafe. It must be killing traffic.

    Well Happy Trails then, Mr. Berman. I sincerely wish you luck in finding a party a better fit for you political/morally.

    As for myself…where Trump leads us I follow. For good or ill. I owe him that much at least since when I, and others, needed a voice he was the only one who showed up.
    -Respectfully, Jack Krevin

      Jack…it’s not me who left the GOP, it’s the GOP who left me. I cannot, could never, follow Trump for Trump’s sake. If he speaks for you on one issue that’s all good and fine. But what happens when he starts speaking against you?

        I would never ask you, or anyone, to follow Trump against their principals. I spoke only for myself without arguing for or against either position.

        As for if/when Trump “starts speaking against” me? I believe a man must own the result of his actions. Good or bad. I made what I considered the best choice to achieve my goals as I saw them. I still do. If that brings me glory or failure I accept that.

        -Respectfully, Jack Krevin
