Can GOP Learn from Hillary in Resolving Nominee Crisis?

The Republican Party, once a proud bastion of self-determined, independent, red-blooded American patriots, has been decimated, all but extinguished, really, a part of the harsh, unforgiving, transformation of America, commonly known derisively as the Obamazization of American greatness.

This tragic suspension of American values and Exceptionalism has caused the once- stellar Party of Lincoln and Reagan to descend into a quagmire of indecision and confusion rivaling that of the Marxist, Islamist-obsessed, anti-American nincompoops known, without even a smidgen of affection, as socialist Democrats.

In fact, the GOP has grown so dysfunctional and clown-like that respected intellectuals and diplomats, such as Rand Paul and others widely known as buttoned-down types, are culled out by the Party’s political colander, with all due haste and passion!

The remaining GOP political warriors in 2016, inarguably the most important presidential election in US history, include, 1) a wealthy reality show star addicted to profiting through manipulation of bankruptcy law, 2)a non-competitive governor from Ohio whose objective in running is one of the great unsolved mysteries in Party history, and 3) and a brilliant, tough, non-Spanish speaking Hispanic from Texas who may be the most despised member of the US Senate in history among Senate colleagues on both sides of the political divide.

The GOP’s problems are magnified many times over by party “leadership” which arrogantly believes that run-of-the-mill Republican voters are incapable of serious contemplation and discernment, and must, therefore, be completely ignored when it comes to nominating a GOP candidate for the presidency.

Sadly, Party elitists would rather see a low-energy, but malleable old school loser, like Jeb Bush carry the Party banner to yet another dismal defeat in the forgettable tradition of John McCain and Mitt Romney, than side with Donald Trump who is bringing millions of new voters into the ‘big tent’ of the Republican Party, bolstered by a tsunami of public rage not witnessed since the 60s.

This elitist versus common voter war in the party has made nearly impossible the task of selecting a nominee while maintaining a semblance of respect and dignity. Elitist warriors are reportedly willing to succumb to the Hillary candidacy, so intense is the intra-party discord and enmity.

All of this turmoil has party leaders tied in knots: How to nominate a standard-bearer without destroying the party itself?

Oddly enough, the answer may be found by studying the Democrat party solutions for conflict resolution.

An example is provided in the Iowa party caucus proceedings which resorted to a “coin toss” to settle the issue between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders!

Although not a sophisticated or reasonable democratic alternative, the ‘coin toss worked out for the Democrats, mostly because Hillary Clinton managed to win six coin tosses in succession!

The big question: Can the GOP elitists and unwashed masses agree to use a coin toss to settle the nomination crisis, rather than relying on old-school solutions like a brokered convention to nominate a candidate who can win in November?

  1. Sure, Hillary Clinton can just say “Trust me,” and that will suffice for most Democrat voters. At least, it’s always been like that. Since I live in a Democrat dominated county, in which the Democrat political machine has controlled the city for about sixty-five consecutive years, I’ve had a long time to observe how the Democrats operate.

    The fact is, the Democrat “rank and file” doesn’t get itself deeply involved in questioning the Democrat bureaucracy. If it suddenly would begin questioning, I think Democrat politicians would first be angered that a constituency would have so much nerve as to question at all. And, if more questioning would follow, those same politicians would be seeking psychiatric help.

    When I walk into the voting place, I’m well known, not by name, but the name the poll volunteers gave me many years ago…”the Republican.”
    Lately, I’m not very proud of the Republican Party, though.
    In my memory, I cannot recall a primary period as ugly as this present one. The ugliness starts with one man, The Donald, who by his presence has broken down the language previously used in political campaigns. We were doing well with polite language, through a more polite discourse ideas and platforms still managed to be understood.

    The difference today is that one man took the liberty of pressing the people’s “hot button.” It’s been the anxieties resulting from Obama’s partiality to Islam and its followers. He has made a habit of his excesses toward The Constitution, obviously regarding it as an antique triviality. Yet, he’s gotten away with it, and not even majorities of both chambers of Congress have stopped him.
    The “good ol’ boys” just didn’t have the guts to reprimand him. He must have been rolling on the White House floor upon discovering that his complexion was his protection, that Congress wouldn’t dare, it had been afflicted with the P.C. bacteria.
    Trump saw the “compassionate American P.C.” at work and decided to put it in reverse…and because of that, he’s got a healthy lead of support.

    So healthy is his lead, that the Party of Silence is now frantically attempting to battle him in the late eleventh hour. Even with that, the RNC is “A dollar short and MORE than a day late!” If the Party goes under, it will be one man, who at times has disgusted me, who’s done the RNC in.I think this bothers the “establishment” more than even losing another presidential election. Winning elections isn’t their priority, keeping their dignity by reinforcing their places in “the establishment” is.

    It all amounts to one of two choices the way I see it; either Trump succeeds against all the “establishment” efforts to neutralize him, or remain who they’ve been, the “also ran Party” Kind of dreary, isn’t it? Well, there’s the “third party thing” which threatens. If it started even today, the Democrats could win with Mrs. Clinton, and that would be really ugly! Just think, at least another four years of Obama/Clinton policies, which this nation cannot afford. I keep hoping for a Cruz miracle, I’ll vote, that I know. I’ve voted since voting for President Eisenhower, staying home is no option, it would only serve to make a Democrat vote more effective than in should be….
