In fact, I was a ‘Never Trumper’. But having been a conservative since before time, I followed W.F.Buckley's dictum and ‘voted for the rightward most candidate’ . . . as I have always done since Nixon. I have voted for losers and jackasses since time immemorial (or so it seems) and always sucked it up as ‘R’ candidates screwed conservatives raw after they got into office.
So, this time I did vote for the Donald expecting Jesse Ventura redoux.
Of course, my earlier rhetoric here on FR got me banned because NOBODY was allowed to question the Trumpster.
Well, so far, I am pleased that he appears to be fulfilling his promises in an orderly fashion. However, given a lifetime of lying pubbies (no shortage of them) I still reserve judgment but am quietly in his corner and growing more pleased as I listen to the howls of the leftist damned.
I will concede that I did not vote for Reagan in his second term (too liberal in several regards) but I stand by his dictum to “trust, but verify.”
This is my first post since coming back after the election. Your post was too familiar and I wanted to speak on behalf of many who have labored for decades and seen betrayal at nearly every turn.
If Trump is what his acolytes bill him to be and the left fears him to be, great. I will join you in an extra sized portion of crow. However, if he heeds the call of the global ring wraiths, I will continue in my solitary journey - following my own drummer.
Pub-bots can still kiss my ample and growing aged ass.
