How Donald Trump Shows Democrats Up for the Dictators They Are


Trigger (heh) warning: This post is political in nature, from a conservative point of view. It does not follow the liberal narrative because I believe that narrative is stupid. This post is not about my normal recovery and cycling stuff. You have been trigger (heh) warned.

We all know there’s no way Donald Trump should be where he is in the primaries.  He’s brash, he’s anything but polished…  Somehow he’s what Republican voters want this goaround.

As I have made abundantly clear previously, I am no fan of the Donald but he’s better than the socialist or the liar. By a long shot, and that’s saying something.

I do, however, understand the sentiment behind his popularity.  The average Republican, just the average Republican is a doer, not a sheep.  While leftist Democrat politicians can get away with promising the moon and delivering the same old tired, failed bloated bureaucracies that worsen the lives of their constituents, Republican politicians are actually expected to get results and the results we’ve seen so far aren’t all that impressive.  There’s no doubt they have a tougher road.  In fact, Republicans have it double tough compared to your typical left-wing politician; selling freedom is much more difficult than selling free stuff.

Where this election cycle gets really fun is with Bernie Sanders. Bernie isn’t all that far left of Hillary Clinton but there is one big difference: Bernie Sanders actually believes that crap.

Let’s face it, the establishment let him run because he was unelectable and everyone knew it.  I mean, come on, he identifies himself as a socialist…  In AmericaBut, he caught fire with the “Gimme free college or gimme death” crowd.  All of a sudden you had urchins with “Feel the Bern” signs (and they actually meant that as a good thing), decent crowds and Bernie virtually tying Hillary in Iowa.  Bernie then got trounced in South Carolina but won handily up north…  Then we get to Super Tuesday, Hillary has a good day but Bernie does fairly, considering.  However, as close as they should be in delegates, Hillary is leading by more than 600 delegates. 1,066 to a mere 432 last I saw.  Contrast that with the right.  The delegate count is, at least so far, evenly spread  amongst the four contenders remaining:  Trump has 329, Cruz has 231, Rubio has 110 and Kasich has 25.

Republican Delegate Count

The difference, of course, is Superdelegates.  The will of Democrat voters matters little because the party controls who gets to win.  Another way to look at it, the Party dictates, with magical delegates, who gets to go up against the Republican in the big dance. In terms of actual votes, the two are neck and neck:

Democrat Delegate Split

Democrats use Superdelegates to counter the will of its voters.  This, of course, shouldn’t be a surprise to those voters.  As the left makes painfully clear, their politicians know better than the voters and therefore they can’t have you messing up their idea of the way things should be.  In the Republican party the will of the people reigns, not the will of the party and this is exactly as it should be, and why Trump is such a pain in everybody’s ass.

This isn’t to say the Establishment Republicans don’t have a say, they do as will be apparent come convention day. Word has it Cruz is up over Trump in Kansas. Where this gets really fun is the Establishment doesn’t like Cruz either. I can’t wait for the convention.

Somebody pass the popcorn.

    Look at those numbers, it seems like it would be simple it would be to trounce Trump in the primaries if it was just between Cruz and Trump or even Rubio and Trump…

      Oh, it’s still going to work out. I have a feeling this one is going to the convention.

      • bribikes says:

        I hope you are right! I have to actually start reading about this election instead of picking up stuff here and there…my coworkers are beginning to ask me questions, gotta get informed. Sigh. Ignorance has been bliss.

      • bgddyjim says:

        That it is. Vote Ted, you’re good. Re-engage blissful ignorance. 😉

      • bribikes says:

        Yeah, he is not perfect, but he does seem the best option right now, thanks 😀 However, I do have still to follow the news cause my coworkers wanna know the latest about Clinton (they are on the fence about her) I don’t know why they are asking me about it, but I am gonna do my best to give them answers. Unless it gets too painful, in that case I will give up 😉

      • bgddyjim says:

        The latest is the FBI gave the guy who set-up her personal server immunity for his cooperation in the criminal investigation. Oh, and it is a criminal investigation. It’s being called an “inquiry” by Clinton but the FBI doesn’t do inquiries, they do criminal investigations. Only. 😉 Good luck in the swamp.

        Thanks, I need it!

  2. There has been no shortage of entertainment, thanks to the Donald, but it’s getting real old. Unfortunately, entertainment has become the focus of this election more than anything else.

  3. i’m enjoying your “trigger warning.”i’m waiting to see whether romney announces a bid. if he does, i will forever believe that trump was part of an overton window play to install romney all along.

    • bgddyjim says:

      If Romney tries, it’ll be a revolt in the party for sure. If that’s the case, make that popcorn extra butter and salt. With an ice cold Coke!

  4. And just loving the fact that Donald Trump just held a rally in which people were told to raise their hands like Hitler. Fascism lives in America! Hope you have fun with the Storm Troopers and nailbooted “security” he’ll install, and already uses to thump anyone that raises their voice against him in his “rallies.” Welllll…. It will give you something to shoot at with your treasure trove of guns. This is the hell you’ve been hoping for!

    • bgddyjim says:

      Keep coming back, Chris. One day you’ll get it. I hope. Your comments are becoming fun though. The difference between our side and yours is that we wouldn’t put up with that. Your comment is preposterous.

    It is refreshing to see sophistry free Trump talk. The media continually sprays such negative snippet lying nonsense about him. I am in no way a Trump supporter. I just support truth. Or I like to think I do. Thanks for throwing out facts as they sit and stats. Also, I think your on to something. Lol
