Colin Ross: Elephant Suicide

|| By COLIN ROSS ||  This is an interesting election cycle for the Republican party because demographically speaking, this may just be the last real shot the GOP has at taking the presidency.  Odd, then, that Republicans seem to be doing everything within their power to lose this election.

The top five voter issues this year in descending order are: The economy, job creation, health care, government spending, and social security.

What issues are dominating the Republican primary? Immigration, which voters have determined is the 13th most important issue and Planned Parenthood/ abortion – which doesn’t even make the top fifteen. Even though immigration is only the 13th most important issue to voters, the Republicans have already almost lost the entire election based on their rhetoric about the issue.

Just consider that the front runners in the primary are trying to out-do each other on who can be the least humane candidate in modern history.  In one corner you have Donald Trump, whose white papers on immigration have called for an end to habeas corpus and the creation of a massive militarized zone centered around a stupidly expensive (yet useless) wall complete with Soviet-style checkpoints manned by agents who say “papers, please.”  In the other corner we have supposed evangelical Ben Carson who recently advocated drone strikes against immigrants on the border (like that couldn’t possibly have any unforeseen consequences or innocent victims).

These aren’t even your bottom tier candidates, either.  No ladies and gentlemen, these are your Republican front runners.

The problem for the GOP?  These positions may succeed in pushing candidates to the front of the pack in a Republican primary, but is that all that matters?  How will the eventual GOP nominee fare with minorities?  Not well, if history holds.  In 2012 Hispanics voted 71 percent for Barack Obama while Asians supported him at a 73 percent rate and blacks went for Obama at a 93 percent clip.

How in the hell do Republicans court minority voters after this?  How do the Republicans court anyone who cares about limited government after this?

This should be the year of the Republicans.  There is almost no doubt Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton should be in a jail cell right now (in fact, how cool would it be if Jeb Bush and Hilary Clinton shared a jail cell). Even if she doesn’t go to jail, poll after poll shows a large majority of voters think she is completely untrustworthy.  Either way, she is still an establishment candidate reeking of DC insider-dom.

Still the Republicans almost make a compelling argument that she should run the country from a jail cell – presenting them with a childish fascist like Trump as their leading alternative.

The only thing for a sane person to do at this point is grab some popcorn, throw it in the microwave, sit back and watch the GOP carnage unfold like a gladiatorial contest.  After all the Republican party is a freedom-crushing, budget-busting, needless war-supporting relic of a different time in American history so there’s really no point in crying over it.

In fact I am personally cheering Trump on because he is doing more damage to the Republican party in this one campaign than I could ever hope to do in my entire life.

Let me get it started – Hurray for Trumpito. Let’s deport American children. Hurray for Trumpito. Illegal aliens suck. They take away jobs white Americans would do. I’d rather have my chicken slaughtered by meth heads. Hurray for Trumpito – alientating the fastest growing voting block in America. Arriba, arriba.

After all is said and done Rocky-the white vote is ALL that really matters if they turn out and vote.

Just a fact.

Dude, you need to re-read that one again.

flip August 25, 2015 at 1:13 pm

Welcome Colin and I respect that you are willing to come forward and make yourself the ‘poster child’ for Godless,perverted,lawless American hating Democrat Party. You ‘fits’ the bill well.

It is obvious you have been brain injured (like Biden and Hillary) by your indoctrination and brainwashing at the state controlled schools and university.You will overcome this desire to be a worthless,drug addicted degenerate AFTER you move out of momma’s basement and find employment.

In regards to the 2016 political landscape, minorities (black/hispanic) will not decide this election.They didn’t decide the 2012 presidential election. 4,000,000 Christians stayed home either because Romney was a Mormon or he was to liberal. If Romney would have gotten the same number of votes as McCain did in 2008 he would have won.Conservative,Biblical Christians will decide this country-the WHITE ones.Black turnout with be paltry as Obama has lied to the black community and failed them.Obama screwed the illegals as well as his lawlessness eliminated any chance of immigration reform

Trump has sealed this election for Republicans-as long as Bush is not the nominee. Several other great candidates.Sorry amigo-NO amnesty and NO path to citizenship for decades.Democrats can’t win elections without illegals.Hispanic vote is not needed. White vote is all that matters and getting them to the poles.Look at the 2010 and 2014 off year elections.

Best of luck and never forget what Dean Wormer once said, ‘fat, drunk(high in your case)and stupid is no way to go thru life’….

I can’t speak for the age, don’t think he’s unemployed, and definitely not on welfare. On a lovely pension maybe. Semi-retired for sure. But not on welfare.

Good read.

Both parties, IMO, have gone to crazy extremes; bipolar.

I can’t pick either. If you’re not fully onbaord with the full agenda, you’re labeled “RINO” or “DINO”. Libertarians get called RINO that all the time. It goes with the territory.

Donald’s like a big, fat crazy man sitting atop a powder keg with a stick of dynamite saying – “Do what I say or I’ll light it.” And the funniest part is, all his supporters want him to light it, and…… he fully intends to light it. It’s like a hostage standoff with ISIL. You know they’re gonna kill the hostage. And Donald fully intends to explode the GOP. I mean, seriously, if Priebus and Bush really want this to end with a shot at the White House they need the Trump plane to crash into a mountain. I mean the real plane, with Donald on it. Otherwise, he’s just gonna light that stick of dynamite.

Colin’s article a few days ago was excellent, even though a few felt that part of his delivery had the potential to turn some of the more “serious” readers off.

This one, not so much…

Taos August 25, 2015 at 6:22 pm

Uh OK… so a dope addict is giving advice to the GOP… seems appropriate. But here’s the thing, if we could gear up to fight and win a two front war against two determined and brilliant foes then we can certainly build a wall and deport 11-15 million people. Or, are you one of those that would have thought that our fighting those enemies 70 years ago would have also been inhumane? Because simply, whether crossing a border illegally or attacking our nation at Pearl Harbor, the invader is always the same…. an enemy and a threat to our sovereignty.

Colin Ross August 25, 2015 at 8:26 pm

A lot of nations have won wars but no nation has survived by ignoring the basic laws of economics. I’m not sure if you’ve been out of the nursing home in 10 years but the country is decidedly less white while the GOP is bleaching itself.

Taos August 26, 2015 at 7:01 am

WTF are you talking about? For one thing, I’m probably no older than you, and for another, given my actual background in economics, I’ll pass on the advice of a brain dead pot head. But most importantly, I LOVE how leftist (and ironically, always white) tyrants like yourself always assume that these things are racially charged (that’s so going to be Obama’s true legacy) regardless of the fact that 70% of the African-American population receives some type of governmental assistance due in large part because of your economic ideal of the near slave wages of illegals. So what is it you dickhead DEM?: more cheap illegals to do your work or an increase in the minimum wage? Let me guess, you are in favor of both… hahaha Let’s face it, DEMS like you are really just stupid, illogical, and pathetic. Go smoke some more dope and STFU!

Only thing I hate more than idiotic liberals is Colin Ross. The Democratic party should also tank due to Hilary’s e-mail treason: but, why comment on that? Those e-mails are not really serious, right?
Stupid liberals!
