The Cold Hard Truth


Written by John Kirkwood

There are conservatives who support Donald Trump, and, if they’re honest, cringe nearly every time he opens his mouth. They have to. Donald doesn’t know Jack, and he’s running on Dexter Manley – “Fake it til you make it.” And they know this but they don’t care.

The conservatives who support Trump believe that he’s the only one who can “blow up” the establishment, or build the wall, or throw the hammer through the screen of political correctness, etc., etc.

They’ve arrived at a point where they no longer believe the answer is found in the U.S. Constitution, or conservatism, or even in Christianity.

They’ve seen power lust sold as pragmatism work to tear the country apart, and so, blinded by its success, they’re sold on pragmatism-in-drag pulling us out of the mire. And they couldn’t be more wrong.

But don’t think that they’ve developed amnesia over night. They haven’t forgotten conservative or Christian principles – they’ve abandoned them. And that’s why they react with such venom when their pride is challenged by those who point that out to them.
