The further we get into this election year the crazier things seem to get and the less sure I become that we’re gonna make it out alive.  I mean, let’s face it on one side we have real estate mogul running away with things and on the other side we have a criminal, a Socialist and a guy who tried to tax rain.  And this after having a corrupt Muslim sympathizer for president for the last eight years.  It makes me dizzy!

Donald Trump, Sarah Palin’s endorsement notwithstanding, is simply not my guy.  While I most certainly am not a supporter of ‘The Establishment’, I am also in no hurry to hand over the reins of power to Trump.  Because, while he may be saying all the right things, I can’t help but wonder if he genuinely believes what he’s saying, or if it’s lip service. At the end of the day I’m not sure if I can trust him.

At this point time in our history the type of person that we actually need to have running seems nowhere to be found.  Whereas back in 1980, when a similar situation existed, Ronald Reagan was there to come riding to the rescue of the country.  And while there are a great number comparisons being bandied about, there is really no one who bears even the slightest resemblance to the man.

And now I hear that with the growing enthusiasm behind Trump’s campaign we could be on the verge of witnessing some new form of American conservatism.  But I would ask, what’s wrong with the old brand of American conservatism?  And how conservative might this new form of conservatism actually be?  The only way to find that out, I suppose, would be to elect Trump.  But by then it would be too late.

And am I the only one who’s rather disappointed with what we have as being our list of candidates, on both sides?  How is that in a nation of 330 Million people these are the best folks that we can come up with?  Is this really the cream of our crop?  I really would have thought that we could have come up with someone better.  I’m having a rather difficult time ginning up the necessary enthusiasm to vote.

So, what do you suppose would happen if we all, and it would have to be every single one of us, simply decided to stay home this November and not vote for any of them?  Would we make our point or might we perhaps be providing them the impetus for ending elections?  Could they use our decision not to show up against us, to use it as being their justification for doing away with elections altogether?
