The Shocking Truth Of How Far The GOP Is About To Go To Defeat Trump
Drastic times call for drastic measures. While that may be cliché, it perfectly fits the narrative of what the GOP has planned in order to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump.
They’re apparently willing to sacrifice their dignity, morality and common-sense — the anti-Trump establishment has decided they’re going to vote for Hillary Clinton.
“I’ll never support Trump, period. If the only choices I’m offered is between Hillary and Trump, I’ll go for Hillary,” said Eliot A. Cohen, a former adviser to Sen. Marco Rubio who also served in the George W. Bush administration, according to The Hill.
Cohen is just one of 13 high-level foreign policy advisers in Washington who have been thinking along those lines.
Bryan McGrath, deputy director at the Center for American Seapower, said he would vote for Clinton if he “got a gun held to my head” and was forced to choose between her and Trump.
“If it’s between Trump and Clinton, I will vote for Clinton,” Daniel Dresser, a professor at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, said.
“What’s happening is you have a lot of people who are desperate to get anybody in there other than Trump … People are going to go for Cruz, because at the end of the day they think he’s considerably less bad than Trump,” Cohen explained.
Considerably less bad? Ted Cruz is a staunch conservative and always has been. Honestly, Cohen doesn’t even sound like a conservative, let alone a Republican — it’s a shame that the establishment has apparently drifted this far.
Here’s what Republicans don’t get — the battle isn’t among ourselves, but with the Democrats. Voting for the Democrat in protest the GOP nominee — the one the majority of Republicans chose — is downright sick.
Republican leaders in Washington and their corresponding staffers need to keep their emotions in check so they’re not led to make irrational decisions.
When it boils down to the substance of the policy, Trump, Cruz, Rubio, and other ex-Republicans candidates hosted very similar platforms. The primary thing that’s different is messaging — Trump just happens to communicate the talking points in a simpler and more bombastic way.
If you vote Democrat as a Republican, for whatever reason, you need to change your party affiliation.
