Why Conservatives Keep Losing

“We never demanded the one payment that the world owed us—and we let our best reward go to the worst of men. The error was made centuries ago, it was made by Sebastian d’Anconia, by Nat Taggart, by every man who fed the world and received no thanks in return. You don’t know what is right any longer? This is not a battle over material goods. It’s a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish—we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world—but we let our enemies write its moral code.”

~Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

The “Conservative” Traitors Who Fooled Us

Kane at Citizen Free Press wrote, “Ann Coulter is dead to me…” She has been in my graveyard since the third time she said she would never support President Donald John Trump again.

She fooled us. So have many others over the years. Conservatives keep falling in love and keep being played.

Consider this story from the Associated Press, “Arnold Schwarzenegger calls President Donald Trump ‘worst president ever’.”

Remember when he was governor of California?

We loved it when he called Democrats girly men. We thought we had our champion. Too bad he was born in Austria and cannot run for president, we thought at the time.

But once again, the Constitution protected us.

Oh and he apologized for the girly men remark.

Paul Ryan was another matinee idol of the right. We loved it when Mittens picked him as a running mate. He was a fiscal conservative.

4 years later, he dumped on Donald Trump. As House Speaker, he may as well have been Nancy Pelosi for all he cooperated with a real conservative president.

By the way, Ryan came to Washington as a pauper. His net worth is now $8 million.

I won’t go into the Jonahs and Kristols in the media who posed as conservatives on TV. We now realize that Liberal Fascism was a tribute, not a criticism.

They fooled us and fleeced us and laugh in our faces. In Kevin D. Williamson’s gawdawful, “The Father Fuhrer” piece, National Review called us Nazis for crying out loud.

Oh how we swooned when General Mattis joined the Trump administration.

Last June, The Atlantic reported, “James Mattis Denounces President Trump, Describes Him as a Threat to the Constitution.”

Colin Powell was another general gone bad, but by the time President Trump arrived, we already knew his conservatism was a gimmick. He supported Obama. Twice.

Jeff Sessions may still be a conservative. Who knows? We do know that his passive-aggressive management of DOJ saddled President Trump with a witch hunt

His replacement, Bill Barr, drank water well. And he made sure no one would pay a price for Spygate.
