Memo to GOP ‘Never Trumpers’: Reagan Isn’t Rising From the DeadMemo to GOP ‘Never Trumpers’: Reagan Isn’t Rising From the Dead

A “never Trump” friend I’ve known since law school writes:
“My former partner is old enough to have voted for Barry Goldwater. And like me, he is pro-choice, pro-gay rights and libertarian, so there are some Neanderthal Republicans out there who are just too distasteful to vote for. So, like me, he often votes Libertarian. He does not see much about Donald Trump that resembles a traditional Republican.”
For the millionth time, Trump is not a fiscal conservative. He is a populist. And his near-embrace by many evangelicals notwithstanding, New Yorker Trump with “New York values” is likely pro-choice and pro-gay marriage. The man doesn’t even go to church. And speaking of “traditional Republicans”: GOP voters backed Mitt “Romneycare” Romney and John “McCain-Feingold” McCain, but they draw the line at insufficiently conservative Trump?
Here’s the problem. We live in a center-left country. Not center-right — center-left. We talk the talk of low taxes and ending entitlements and terminating this or that social program — until a fiscal conservative true believer proposes legislation to do just that.
Goldwater, in 1964, lost in a landslide. The main reason President Ronald Reagan got elected in 1980, despite his many gifts and his conservative principles, was voter disdain for President Jimmy Carter — gas lines, the Iran rescue debacle, stagflation. Most conservatives who romanticize about Reagan don’t get this point! Yes, we “need” another Reagan. But to bring that about, given the ever-increasing leftward tilt of the country, we need another Jimmy Carter.
Americans never embraced Reagan’s stated conservative agenda — advocating pro-life policies; standing down the Soviet Union by, among other things, funding “Star Wars”; dramatically lowering taxes; and encouraging true free trade (despite his protection of the auto industry with stupid Japanese car “voluntary” import quotas, and protecting Harley-Davidson, among other measures).
David Stockman, Reagan’s young, fiscally conservative then-House member — a Paul Ryan-type numbers guy — headed his Office of Management and Budget. He wanted to take a machete to the size of government. But he failed to roll back much of anything. After leaving in frustration, Stockman wrote “The Triumph of Politics: Why the Reagan Revolution Failed.” He laments that with the combination of special interests and Reagan’s refusal to bat them down, the size of domestic government grew even under the “Great Communicator.”
(snip)Finally, look at still popular and respected ex-Secretary of State Colin Powell, a supposed Republican. He is pro-gun control; pro-choice; pro-affirmative action. He criticized the House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s 1994 “Contract With America” as a “little too harsh”; twice voted for Obama; and thinks the GOP has a “dark vein of intolerance” — code for racist.Forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown.
Well if Barack Obama isn’t our Jimmy Carter, who is.
Yep – identical.
Trump is more a deal negotiator than a dictator, and he’s apparently seeing a formula in America that needs such facilitator oversight to bring it to pass. He might be personally permissive about some things that he’d never agree make sense to have formal social support for — and might be more pro-life than many think.
He is going to rise from the dead, but electing him President on the last day seems kind of pointless—and unless we amend the constitution again, he’s not eligible even if he does rise from the dead.
That said, I’ve written in both Coolidge and Taft.
To: KaslinReagan was rabidly pro-abortion as governor, and handed 3.5 million Mexicans amnesty, without doing a damn thing to secure the border (not because of Congress, because he naivelybelieved in open borders). He turned tail and ran after 241 Marines were slaughtered by Hizbollah in Beirut, when he could have strangled the Islamic Jihad baby in its crib before it became Hamas, Al Queda and ISIS. Worse, he was stupidly convinced by a photo of a Druze baby killed by the PLO (shown by Arabist James Baker) that it was Israel’s fault and forced them out of Lebanon, when the PLO was about to be destroyed. He “defeated” the USSR, while doing nothing to stop the USSR’s actual victory in American schools and civil service (YouTube: Yuri Besmenov to understand how). What the hell was so great about Ronald Reagan?
If Trump builds a wall, and does nothing else, put him on Mt. Rushmore.
