As the first candidate I would be happy to support since being able to vote for President (I just missed out on Reagan) the fact his nomination is now official is a load off of my chest. Hopefully, Trump causes even half the shift he’s promising once he’s elected. All that remains now is Hillary and laughing at the lost credibility of #NeverTrump.
Yes, I get hating a nominee so much you don’t want to back them. For me it was McCain, mostly because he spent eight years being a Democrat before getting the Republican nomination. We didn’t actually lose anything when he was defeated.
But for #NeverTrump? They’re perfectly happy to whip votes for all of the milquetoast, inept, inarticulate, backstabbing Democrat collaborator nominees we’ve seen so far. But when a nominee can actually significantly differentiate themselves from their Democrat opponent for the first time in decades? Oh the humanity!
Yes, the political gag reflex happens. All that #NeverTrump happens to be is illuminating. They are completely happy supporting the useless and hurling verbal abuse to whip support and votes for them. When the shoe is on the other foot with Trump, however, it’s ‘conscience’ and ‘principles’ they’ve never actually shown before.
Their irrelevance can’t happen soon enough.
