How We Got Here and Why Trump is a Poor Choice

I believe Trump has one prominent guiding principle, that is the advancement of Trump. I don’t believe him to be pro-life nor pro-choice.
He has one central ideology and that is self elevation and creating the facade of greatness – his greatness. He is simple minded on big issues with highly honed manipulation skills, he gets what he wants. He is not a producer he is a consumer, an opulent one.
He is not in ideological lock step with his passionate followers, he is using them. He will continue to pursue politically right paths until they cease to serve his purposes.
 
He sees the political landscape for what it is and will play it toward achieving the goal. He got in deep in the early part of the campaign and hated the flack of his adversaries.
Realizing that his 100% name recognition and easily sellable “outsider” status was exponentially more potent than political skill, he road the wave to today.
He is not in ideological lock step with his passionate followers, he is using them. He will continue to pursue politically right paths until they cease to serve his purposes.
Trump-rally-salute
His default is to use and abuse a large corrupt ruling class. I have said from day one that he is a prostitute’s John that wants to be pimp.
He uses people and sees no transcendent value in his fellow man. He has bribed every politician from the meter-maid to the Secretary of State so that he would win access and favors. This is the system he will preserve.
Sooner or later he will return to his natural state. He will acquiesce to moderate voices and leftist policy because it is easy. Conservativism requires thought and dedication and there is no room for such wastes of time for a malignant narcissist like Trump.
In the mean time, if he thinks becoming Thomas Jefferson will beat Hillary, he will be it. If he thinks being a chameleon will beat her he will do that.
He has no allegiance to the constitution, his constituency, the truth or any institution. He salutes the Trump flag and worships what stares at him while he shaves.
History has seen men like this and they are either swallowed by the station they seek or they become tyrants and dictators. He will have a similar fate.
Hopefully your bet is right and he rides the right track because of the pressure of those who put him here and he surrounds himself with authentic conservatives. Most of those are in the #NeverTrump crowd.
