Donald Trump was made to destroy the establishment

Pundits who blame the anger of Republican voters for the creation of the Donald Trump juggernaut aren’t wrong, but they’re looking at second-order effects. The root cause of the anger that has catapulted Trump to the top is the Republican establishment, which time and again betrayed the voters who elected it; the result of the anger is a Republican electorate intent on destroying the establishment. The detonator, if not the suicide bomber, that most are choosing for the task is Trump.

    I cannot predict the future and I cannot see inside men’s souls. I hope, for the sake of the country, that those with faith in Trump are correct.

    • There are a lot of republicans AND democrats who are sick of the way politics are. Trump’s appeal is a lot wider that the media and politicians want to admit.

      I am willing to take a successful clownish businessman rather than the corrupt paid off politicians who presently control the failing system.

      Continuing down the same path, leads us to the same fate as Western Europe.

    • I don’t profess a lot of faith in Trump the individual but I do have faith in his ability to be the means by which the GOP is blown up or refashioned to its proper purpose of representing its one time base.

    • V10_Rob

      Depends on what you want out of the man. As I’ve said, I regard him as a political doomsday device. His job is to destroy the old order, both left and right, hopefully allowing us to rebuild something better from their ruins.

  • Shebel

    I don’t know if Trump should ever President—- but–
    He is valuable , and already, has accomplished a lot .
    Even the status quo Replications fear him.

    The Rats are coming out of the woodwork.

      This preezy race has narrowed my options for reading conservative commentary considerably.
      Years ago I used to think Andrew Coyne was a conservative but he’s nothing more than a Liberal whore.

      • andycanuck

        But he voted NDP this time around, DDTTR!

        And I dumped Weasel Zippers recently because they had through Zip’s co-bloggers five out of seven or so frontpage stories anti-Trump crap including the KKK/Duke lie being promulgated.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          This is Coyne:
          On the one hand killing is good.
          On the other hand killing is bad.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          I still like weezips.

        • Xavier

          I dumped WZ 5 years ago and never looked back. The commenters are good people but the management sucks.

      • David

        NRO is dead to me, Fox news as well.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          I’m starting to wonder what the fallout is going to be for these websites.
          Bill Kristol and the American Standard can go to hell.

      • ntt1

        he was bought out by the liberal elites , he rubs shoulders with them all daily it really isn’t too surprising that he went to the dark side,

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          I rub shoulders with union members daily and I haven’t lost my touch.

          • ntt1

            Iam a union member, i have to be ,to work. most people i work with view the union as silly and just an obstical,not a means to an end. I suspect Coyne sold out to enable himself to continue to be on the right invite list in Ottawa

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I’m a union member, too.
            And I also have to be.
            It’s a deal I made with the devil to feed my kids.

      I don’t like Trump but I don’t hate him either. It’s a very risky proposition but I want to see what he can do. I’m only rooting for him because he ISN’T a politician, he is foremost, a businessman. Put someone who isn’t your typical-traditional politician. He will put Americans first. I’d say USA is fortunate to have someone like him considering Canadians are naive and will bend over to political correctness given the growing number of Muslims (even before the 50,000 refugees) that are easily coming here in Canada.

    But they chose … poorly. A man whose only principle is himself, who will inevitably become a tool of the establishment – “to get things done”. Ted Cruz – a true man of principle – was the guy for taking on the establishment.

    • BillyHW

      And all Cruz had to do was say he’d build a wall and deport the illegal aliens.

      • Brett_McS

        Megyn Kelly at the debate on Trump’s suddenly flexible position on immigration: “Which will have some asking whether, on your immigration policies, you’re really just playing to people’s fantasies, which is a tactic you praised in your book, The Art of the Deal.”

        Cruz was the main guy who killed the gang of 8 bill, and is actually committed to border security. Again, not the shiny goblet, just the best one.

        • bob e

          yea .. he was born in canada too .. an illegal
          US senator .. destined for court over NBC.
          great choice

      • Minicapt

        He did, several years ago, and several times since.

        Cheers

        And all Mulcair had to do- was to Agree that you can Not wear a mask while reciting the Oath to become a Canadian Citizen.

    • bob e

      horse-shit ..

  • Spatchcocked

    Trump is a patriot….and believe it or not is being rather circumspect to date. If he’s elected once he gets the bit in his teeth then the multiplier ripple effect will be in play.
    A nice civilised Glorious Revolution by the people.

  • jack burns

    He’s pretty much lost me after he backpedalled on H1B’s in last night’s debate. That’s one of the pillars of his position. He did it casually and off handedly. The wall will be next and then we can just listen to his bullshit about his amazing company and how amazing everything is going to be. Cruz is even worse on H1Bs and is propped up by Israeli interests. He and Rubio seem like their strategy now is to bitch like ex-wives who didn’t get their alimony. Katich came off well but has said not a word about immigration, the only real issue.

    • BillyHW

      H1B is a scam to lower the wages of our hardest working and brightest young people.

      • jack burns

        I worked in IT in the biggest shops in Silicon Valley for over 30 years before retiring. By the time that I left I’d be on a conference call with 50 people and 49 of them would be Indians.

    • That was a bad move. I hope he is pushed back to his original position.

  • Shebel

    It ain’t the POOR that are gnashing their teeth in this election .
    Doncha jist love it .

  • gxp01

    Leftist-Liberals aren’t perhaps, so bad at all. They created people like Trump. Thanks to their “goody two-shoe” idealism, they thought they are paving ways for the “greater good” while carelessly ignoring the repercussions of their so-called “progressive” movement.

    You hear that Libtards? It’s thanks to you folks that a force like Donald Trump exists; did you honestly think every person will bend over to #politicalcorrectness? lol!

    • Shebel

      I wonder if Justin is listening? Probably not.

  • bob e

    no trump & that’s it boys .. that’s it. name me another person
    on the horizon that has this kind of passion & dosen’t take shit from anyone..
