The good news is that the people of Wisconsin will have him back home to continue with the progress that has been made to date and the Badger State will be a better place with more opportunity for all of her people. And he should understand that with the crazy format that the Republicans established, it was inevitable that some good candidates would get knocked out early. What we need to hope for is that some of the RINOs in the mix will be next to drop out as well. With a starting group of seventeen, it was impossible from the outset for all to get a fair opportunity to tell their stories.
The biggest problem I see over the next few months is getting the Establishment to come to their sense and realize that the base is not interested in another moderate candidate after back to back weak nominees in the immediate past. Jeb Bush does not inspire and the likes of Christie, Kasich and others of similar ilk will not be acceptable. That's why the base is so enamored with outsiders like Trump, Carson and even Fiorina; they really want some fresh blood that is not tainted by the stain of Washington politics.
Of those three, Fiorina is probably the one they would most likely support since in reality she is certainly no conservative from a review of her background. And the sitting Senators in the running offer a mixed bag, from Ted Cruz, a real conservative who is clearly an outsider, to Marco Rubio, a man who started his Senate term with so much promise, only to be used by Chuck Schumer as a pawn to push an immigration program which the people don't want. In my mind, Rubio will never recover from that and his continuing push for a huge increase in H1B1 visas despite a large number of people already here and citizens who should be filling those jobs. And he is likely to be the one with strong support from the Establishment since he has maintained a working relation with them due to his immigration stance.
Now we find both Trump and Carson under fire for standing their ground on the immigration issue, particularly as it pertains to Muslim "refugees", most of whom are coming not from the battlefield but refugee camps outside of the war zone and number over seventy percent male in make up. Not exactly what many would call true refugees. a factor which makes many support either Trump or Carson. And while Ted Cruz's performance has been disappointing largely due to his inability to get enough air time, his star could quickly rise if he can gain camera time. The silent majority is restless, folks, and I don't think they are going to readily accept the status quo and longer, they are looking for major change and focus on helping American citizens first.
I only hope that when the field gets winnowed we have left standing a person who has the fortitude and the strength to stand for the America that has been left behind by the Establishment, for they certainly don't seem to represent our views and hopes. And at this point in time I see Trump as the one most likely to fill that bill, not as a conservative but as a man who will put America first in all that he does. He is the leader to date and he has a bullseye on his back and the left wing compliant media will do all it can to eliminate him from the competition.
It's going to take a while to get this thing settled but regardless of the outcome, remember one thing. Any of the candidates will offer a better likelihood of making America change directions, for we know that if Hillary is the Democratic nominee she could possible even go further to the left than Obama. And someone like Bernie Sanders, well, that would just hasten the final destruction of America, financially and otherwise. Stay informed, stay involved, and keep your head screwed on for it's bound to be a rocky road ahead. May God stand strong with America, may we be successful in nominating a strong pro-America candidate and may we ever keep our allegiance to a nation under God foremost in all that we do.
