My response to:
Trump’s nomination would rip the heart out of the Republican Party
By Michael Gerson
What terrible accusations, from a former follower from the party of Lincoln, i.e. Cruz is a fascist and Trump is a demagogue. Unfortunately, Michael Gerson has been seduced and succumbed to that Washington aura, air, water, principalities and powers that blinds, corrupts, and denudes Common Sense. Michael, the party is over, your Washington friends and pals have spent all the money now and for the next one hundred years. Your favored programs have devolved into pogroms against decent, religious and modest Americans. Lincoln conservatives, like Scouts, are trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. Washington parseltounges these values, redefines the words and actively legislates against their intent. But there is a Deep Magic. There is a un-fractured volcano deep in the heartland, it’s molten magma erupting, not because of “squalid prejudice” but righteous fury. You are going to get burnt.
