In 2008, Republicans lost the presidential election because a weak, establishment candidate won the GOP nomination and “hope and change” swept the nation. People were absolutely enamored with the young charismatic senator from Illinois and as a result, the GOP was soundly defeated.
In 2012, Democrats did not win the election; the Romney campaign simply lost it. Between Romney’s horrific second presidential debate performance, the failed Romney data collection system called ORCA and the failure of the Romney campaign to show Romney’s soft side (as was done on Netflix after the election), President Obama was simply handed a second term.
Notice whose fault the previous 2 losses were not: Conservatives. All of that could change very soon. If consolidation does not begin around Ted Cruz, Trump will be the nominee and he will lose. More importantly than that, conservatives will be blamed. The history books will read “in 2016 conservatives got their gun loving, abortion hating, wall building nominee and were soundly defeated”, thus totally discrediting the Tea Party movement.
The facts are simple. Trump is not a conservative and will be defeated in an embarrassing fashion in November. Because of this, any politician that claims to be conservative and supports Trump must be blacklisted by conservatives. They should be shunned, rejected, mocked and scorned because of the damage they have done. Ban them from CPAC; fail them on conservative scorecards; make them politically radioactive. When President Hillary Clinton gets 3 supreme court nominees, blame the blacklist. When President Hillary Clinton restricts second amendments rights and expands abortion rights, blame the blacklist. When President Hillary Clinton appoints radicals to every federal agency, blame the blacklist. We must purge them from conservative circles to make sure this never happens again. #NeverTrump
