It’s time we get rid of incumbent politicians

Has it occurred to the GOP Establishment the more they act like petulant children the more they prove the voters right in choosing Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee?

I think every time a Governor Jeb “I-m-going-to-hold-my breath” Bush or Senator Lindsey “I’m-taking-my-ball-and-going-home” Graham come out against Trump, he gains millions of votes.  The GOP Establishment is why Trump is where he is in the first place so it stands to reason most of his supporters are happy not to have them around.

By the way, didn’t Governor Bush and Senator Graham sign a pledge to support the eventual nominee?  Why hasn’t the media mentioned that?  Imagine the feeding frenzy if Trump decided against supporting the nominee if it weren’t him.

The Washington elites stacked the deck against the voters. The Democrats were better at rigging their game so Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will win the nomination despite most of the enthusiasm being for Senator Bernie Sanders.

Trump and Senator Sanders are indictments against the political ruling class but the Washington Establishment is so tone deaf they only hear the music echoing inside their collective heads?

What will happen if a good majority of the Conservatives and long-time establishment types stay home in November and Trump wins?  Then what will they say other than claiming the voters are too stupid to know any better?

Remember, this is the same ruling class that pass laws telling us what light bulbs to use, what types of cars to drive, what bathrooms to use, and on and on and on.  This is a ruling class that covets voter dependence on the government.  How dare we actually think for ourselves!

I laugh at the Republicans coming out against Trump on principle.  There are very few of them that actually have principles let alone actual care for the country.  There are some Conservatives that have legitimate concerns about Trump based on their philosophy of government and that is fair but is the country better off with Trump or Secretary Clinton as president?

If politicians cared about the country the answer is obvious to me based on my philosophy but you make your own choice based on your ideology.  Most politicians do not care about the country – they care about their empires and fear they will lose then with Trump as president.

Good. I hope they lose everything and join the unemployed they helped create.

Most Republicans are afraid Trump’s supporters will come out in droves to vote for him on top of the ticket and not for them down the ballot.  The fake Conservative Senator John McCain told donors in April “Have no doubt, if Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket, here in Arizona, with over 30 percent of the vote being the Hispanic vote, no doubt that this may be the race of my life.”

This is typical of most of the political class.  There is no talk about what is best for the country, only what is best for themselves.  I guess it’s every rat for himself as they abandon the country’s ship.

The New Jersey radio station (101.5 FM) had a morning host Jim Gearhart who coined the phrase “Get Rid of Incumbent Politicians” (GRIP). Every election cycle he’d implore listeners to vote out the incumbents. It seldom, if ever happened.  I hope this is the year we throw the bums out.


About Armando Diana

A freelance writer for more than 30 years I covered the political scene in New Jersey which can prepare anyone for national politics. I have no fancy political degrees and I'm definitely not a lawyer - I am a common person who is fed up with politics. I want leaders focused on doing what is right for the country, not for them.
