We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
My bottom line support for Trump is he is the only candidate who can beat Hillary. He will destroy her in the debates, and he is going to pull a huge number of Democrats away from the Democrat party to vote for him rather than vote for Hillary.
Someone like Cruz will make all the right ideological speeches, and then go down to defeat as the rigged special interest groups brought out by the political machines dutifully vote for Hillary. You need someone like Trump who will disrupt and destroy that system.
How is Trump going to destroy Hillary in a debate? He was clownish in the GOP debates, ill-informed, buffoonish, rude and petulant. He actually has the capacity to make the inept, lying Clinton look well by comparison. Cruz would slice and dice Clinton.
The gang at National Review has really revealed itself to be ugly, vulgar, snobbish and immature. Goldberg, Williamson and Lowry, especially. Every one of them would vote for Hillary Clinton in a heartbeat. Victor Davis Hanson at least understands reality.
One, Kendrick Lamar (said to be Obama’s “favorite rapper”), has a current album whose cover shows a number of African-American males on the White House lawn, boozing, holding wads of cash, and celebrating, while the body of a dead white judge — black crosses mutilating his eyes — lies before them. Deep, profound, heavy symbolism?
Add art to the many subjects of which Victor Davis Hanson is ignorant.
