[Bumped] The Meltdown on the Right or "Oh my, whatever shall we do with the Donald?"


Dear Brainiacs, I've been down this road. I've seen things get old. Time to get control, and start again. I shouldn't have to tell you this, but in 2016 voting is simple.

You ponder all the as usual shabby and vile candidates offered by the major parties;

you feel your gorge rise;

you feel your brain writhe as you are forced to remember, and not for the first time, just what an evil and soul destroying system the current system is;

you shiver with the very natural and enduring repulsion, and then....

You vote for the one who is the most to the right.


Without fail.

"But I have my principles!"


This is not a kindergarten ethics period just before milk and cookies and a long dirt nap.

We're playing with live ammunition in 2016.

Man up, grow a pair, and vote for the candidate who is most to the right.

You might hate him.

You might loathe him.

Me. Too.

And I don't care what his name is.

Stump or

You might want him to be executed by a belt sander on pay-per-view.

Me too.


"But.. but... he can't win!"

Not if you sit home in your eternal dorm room muttering small talk at the wall while I'm in the hall, reliving your visions of political purity, and tossing your brain salad with mixed nuts.

"But... but... he makes me feel bad."

Me too.

Fine. We get it that you have feelings. We get you feel bad.

Take your feelings back to your dorm room and sob into your pillow until you're finished. Don't get any on you. We'll bring you a box of Kleenex or a hot towel, okay? You done? Good.

Now line up and vote for the candidate who is most to the right.

Be ye of -- at the very least -- low-info-flow Nike caliber intellectual prowess and "Just Do It."

Take a series of deep breaths, hold up the hem of your ball gown, keep calm.... and vote for the candidate who is most to the right.

You're not voting for the candidate, you silly person, you are voting for the right.

Either you are voting for the Right because you believe that the Right is Right for America, or you are not. Sit it out and you are still not voting for what is Right.

And if you happen to think that the Kristolnacht vision of Bill Kristol/Mitt Romney's 3rd-Party "candidate" could possibly win... then you are a whacked out delusional nut job with a serious case of intellectual insanity. If so follow Cher's advice about love in Moonstruck:

Sigh. Why are we even wasting time and keyboard strokes on the stupidity of such flatulent quislings as Kristol and Romney? Get back to me when they've been buried in the compost pile next to Ross Perot and the Mugwumps.

After all this time of watching the left try to shove it in to America with Obama and break off the handle with Hillary, I should not have to tell Americans that this year it is incumbent upon them to vote for the candidate who is most to the right even if that candidate is wrong.

Yes, yes, I hear your whimpering, whining, and moaning about not getting your favorite of many of this year's Republican losers is making you upset.

Me too.

I didn't get my way. Waaaaaaaaa!

Yes, yes, I get that the new boss is likely to be the same as the old boss.

Irrelevant to the game on the ground in 2016. That game is to try to stop the longest run of Democrat rule in the presidency since FDR.

Bearing that in mind you will then, if you love your country more than you love your little imagined 3rd party happy world, vote for the candidate who is most to the right.

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!


Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

Okay, fine, got that.

Now put your old records back on the shelf and vote for the candidate who is most to the right and then....


I've been down this road
I've seen things get old
Time to get control
And start it all again

Time to lock and load
Time to get control
Time to search the soul
And start again

My favorite sign seen at the Trump rallies throughout the nation in the last few months?

"We came in peace.
This time."

Now cut the crap and vote for the one who is the most to the right.

Trump is not the most to the right.

Posted by: Dustin Havens at May 17, 2016 10:52 AM

Try reading the Scott Adams post you linked in the right column. This (overly lengthy & emotional) argument fails because Trump is not discernibly Right in any positive sense, though he does seem to authentically embody several unfortunate late-19th-century irrational and negative impulses widely misidentified as being intrinsic to the Right.

Posted by: David Zincavage at May 17, 2016 10:53 AM

Let's see. Against Clinton or Saunders we have the assertion that "Trump is not most to the right"

Explain to me why that is.

Posted by: vanderleun at May 17, 2016 11:03 AM

I just wann’a hear the Jackwagons say that they’ll be voting for Hillary. Go ahead, say it. Don’t be a pussy, say it.

And no Pussy, not voting doesn’t abscond you of jackshit. Not voting is in fact a vote for Hillary. (Just like it was for Obama, when all you pussies who couldn’t locate your balls and vote for Romney. Thanks again for that.)

Posted by: tim at May 17, 2016 11:50 AM

Could you please explain which of Hillary's donor's policy pronouncements you find the most "right"?

Posted by: pandelume at May 17, 2016 12:19 PM

Yo tim

That should be "absolve," not "abscond."

Apart from that, you fuckin-A right.

As for the "not my favorite candidate" bullshit, grow the fuck up and pay attention. Trump is the "most right" in the sense of "closest to reality." Failure to recognize that is just further evidence of your infection with relativism.


Posted by: Rob De Witt at May 17, 2016 12:20 PM

Ah I remember the good old days of just a few months ago, when the Trump juggernaut told us that his enormous appeal crossed all divides and he didn't need those conservative jerks with all their principles.

Now, not so much. And the Trump fans damp with flop sweat start hollering at us to get in line otherwise *****HILLARY*****.

Sorry, no. Ask some of your crossover-appeal friends for their votes if you think you're coming up short.

Posted by: pandelume at May 17, 2016 12:35 PM

Is the picture of the crying former speaker saying he didn't get his way an attempt at irony? As I recall, he called Cruz "Lucifer" and talked about how he enjoyed tweeting with his golfing buddy Trump. Seriously, do you folks even read what you post?

Posted by: jscd3 at May 17, 2016 1:19 PM



Fuck you.
Lack of principles is why we're where we are.
And you're solution is to provide even MORE lack of principles?

This proves what I've said all along.
It's NOT the politicians that are wrong with this country.
It's the GODDAM votists!
They are just plain stupid and always will be.

This is why I live way back here in the sticks, far away from society, knowing full well that "out there" is a world slammed with idiots and criminals, things I'll have no part of.

It can all go to hell tomorrow but my conscience will be clear.

Is yours?

I'm not right or left, I'm American. As in the Declaration, Constitution, the unbelievable agony of the Civil War, the Union of the States. Hillary is a sleazy one-world lefty trying to lead us to a completely different place. Trump is neither right nor left, just an authoritarian master persuader (just ask Scott Adams) in it for himself, with no appreciation of what it means to be American except in a narrow territorial sense. Trump's Chumps seem awfully willing to be persuaded that the excrement smells like a rose.
If I have to write in another name, I will do so, can't vote for either of these disgraces, I will not choose my poison. Let the rest of you fools pick between them. I wasn't responsible for Obama, either.

Well, that must be a terrific comfort to you. Who'd you vote for?

Posted by: Rob De Witt at May 17, 2016 11:33 PM

I should like all of you Principled Purists to post the names of politicians, past or present, who were sufficiently Purely Principled for you, and why.

Then I will tell you whey they too were in fact not very Pure and why Vanderleun, which whom I often disagree, is 100% correct in this post.

Trump is indeed a crawling weevil in the flour, but he is small compared to Hillary.

Always choose the lesser of two weevils.

Posted by: Fred Z at May 18, 2016 5:12 AM

@Fred Z, where in the world did you get the idea that there has ever been a principled US politician?

When a politician places property rights above all else, let me know and maybe I'll vote for him.

Until then I'll have nothing to do with your criminal activities.

Posted by: ghostsniper at May 18, 2016 7:30 AM

It is going to be a landslide.

Posted by: larryw at May 18, 2016 10:08 AM

Principles without political power is posing and preening.

Based on presidents past Trump is good enough for the Republic and far superior to any viable alternative.

Posted by: Mikey NTH at May 18, 2016 10:39 AM

There is war now.

There will be war. If Hillary or Saunders become our beloved leader it will continue, as it has over the Obama years, more American lives will be lost and nothing gained.

There will be war. If Donald is elected president America has at least a good chance of winning and ending it.

Sorry left, right, pajama boy, knuckle dragger, poof, he-man, Damnocrat, Republican, Libertarian, I stand for America. I grew up in an America that I would like my grandchildren to be able to enjoy.

For that to happen America and American ideals need to win. Period.

Winning Trumps principals.

Remember back in the day, when they said that B movie actor, the one that did the movie with the chimp wasn't qualified to be governor? Then he wasn't qualified to be a President? Then, when he died, those same folks declared him Saint Ronnie and now no one is pure enough to follow in his footsteps.

It doesn't much matter what the wannabe elites want. The dirt people are roused and they are fed up. It will be a landslide, so you can jump on board or spend the next four years bellyaching.

As Andrew Brietbart so famously said to the left and the cucks, "Fuck you. War."

Posted by: vanderleun at May 18, 2016 7:36 PM

I wasn't going to vote for president in November this year. But after Mitt Romney told me not vote for Trump, I decided to vote for Trump. I don't care. If it pisses off people like Kristol and Romney, it can't be all bad.

Posted by: Browncoat at May 18, 2016 10:14 PM


Everybody wants to continue to kick the can down the road.

Nobody has the nuts or the intellectual acuity to admit what they know in their very being what is wrong and what needs to be done.

I'll presume there is a certain level of cuckness in all and the horror of the necessity is avoided by all but in the darkest regions of their minds late at night when no one else is around, and then, only fleetingly.

The system was doomed to fail from the beginning, it was flawed from the gitgo.

One more time, you can not build a country based in crime.

You can not ask people to contribute to their own suicide.

Trump, klintin, sanders, whoever, is hope from the votists for more kicking the can down the road.

When any of those people, or anyone else, is elected, except for god himself if he is real, the can and the road will no longer exist the great leveling will start.

I guess we'll see about all that. But one observation among these many is:
We needed George Patton and Chesty Puller, and they gave us Wesley gdam Clark and diversity training. Shock and Awe my ass.

Your enemy is tribal and worships mythology.
Your enemy cannot bend to reason or logic.
Your enemy is envious, jealous, and conniving.
Your enemy is philosophy and people.
Your enemy is training to kill you.

So go ahead with your plans for a principled stance, do not fight the enemy or even work for his defeat. Stick your thumb in your mouth and pout if that makes you comfy. Cuck.

One of the two front-runners will be elected President; no one will appear from the mists and withdraw Excaliber from the stone. We have those two choices and neither are perfect, but one (the career Lenninist politician with a trail of imperial decisions and dead bodies behind her) will take a giant s**t on liberty, while the other one has a chance to do some repair. And build a damned wall.

Choose your weapons because the enemy has his in hand.

BRAVO...excellent post. Thank you for saying these things that NEED to be understood.

Posted by: tomaig at May 19, 2016 6:18 AM

From where I sit in the woods, it appears as though most thinkers are upset. Upset with others and mad with themselves, mostly for standing by while our republic degraded to its current condition. Now, suddenly so very concerned that we feel strongly obligated to instruct others as to how they should vote.
In order to comply with the need so strongly felt, I suggest voting for: Term Limits.

Posted by: Dave J at May 19, 2016 6:51 AM

I am voting for Mr. Trump because he makes me laugh. Seriously, he is funny and has made this election cycle fun. Ask any woman. The fella who makes her laugh is the good guy.

That, and all of his platform planks are conservative -- in many ways even more so than the #NeverTrump morons who run around telling everyone how "conservative" they are. Oh, and I'm a Christian woman who reads the Bible. The Gospels were very clear about not acting the Pharisee.

The re-virgined GOP makes me laugh. They are the whore who, having agreed to McCain or Romney in the face of the populist juggernaut are now dismayed to see the price go so low as Trump. Now they're all virtuous and principled. Before they were all about the valuable cash prizes they were going to get for their whoredoms. Trump is going to bugger them for free and make them pay him.

Gary Johnson polled at 11% when his name was added to a recent poll. It may have been one state, I can't remember, I was drinking at the time. He is more to the right and the libertarian party is on the ballot in enough states that if they win the right ones the election could be thrown into the house. In the house it would be anyones guess who might win, neither Hillary or Trump is liked by any of them in either party. Johnson could be a compromise. Yes yes I know that is so unlikely to happen I may as well wish for a unicorn.

Principles, shrinpicles.

Some choices are complicated, this is not one of them; it's quite binary - one is worser than the other and you only get one choice.
