To My #NEVERTRUMP Friends: Let’s Roll the Dice!

I'm willing to roll the dice for Trump!
by Tom Balek, Contributing Author: I voted for Ted Cruz in the South Carolina primary. Last night, after getting Trump-thumped (again) in Indiana, Cruz pulled out of the presidential race.

Many of my friends and acquaintances who "Rock on the Right Side" are really bummed today. They say they will never vote for Trump. A number of them have disowned the Republican Party or proclaimed it dead. Some express fear that Trump will start a trade war with China and trash our economy (presumably worse than it already is). The angriest among them shout that Trump is a Democrat plant, intent on destroying the nation once and for all.

I remember how bummed I was when Obama was re-elected in 2012. I knew what to expect from his second term, although I admit my surprise that Congress didn't put up any resistance at all. So I understand your despair on V-D day (Victory for The Donald). If I could, I would buy each of you a beer and we could all cry in them together.

But just one beer.

I agree that Trump, at times, sounds like an idiot, despite his insistence that he "has a good brain" and is "very smart." I know that he is not all that interested in the Constitution, that he has supported liberals, and that he is on the wrong side of some pretty important values issues. He's rude. He's coarse. He's arrogant. I get it. But I will be voting for him in November anyway. Here's why.

First of all, it must be repeated that we know for certain how awful life under Hillary will be. If you don't know that, or are in denial, I can't help you. Hillary will be Obama on steroids - ten times more aggressive and fearless - and we won't be able to count on Congress or the Supreme Court to defend us. This alone should be all the motivation you need to take a chance on Trump, or maybe you have children or grandchildren to think about. On the other hand, if you strongly believe our priorities should be making safe zones for college students, building special bathrooms for .06% of the population, shutting down energy production in the USA while China builds a new coal plant every week, and igniting warfare in our country over race, sex and income level, just let Hillary win.

Consider, too, that for the last eight years our nation has been led by politically-correct academic knuckleheads. Is it any wonder our economy has tanked when nobody in the administration knows anything about business, economics, trade, foreign relations, military strategy, or anything else? What if, for a change, we have a president who brings in qualified experts from the real world to replace the self-serving government weenies and delirious socialist academics currently running our federal government?

I can't guarantee that Donald Trump will do that. He hasn't shown a whole lot of depth or detail to back up his populist promise that he will "make America great again." But he might.

He might make the EPA back off and let the USA become the energy powerhouse of the world. He might beef up our military, knock out the terrorists and regain the respect of other nations. He might protect us from the plague of uncontrolled immigration that is destroying Europe. He might clean house on our bloated, inefficient and corrupt federal government and make it work for the people. At least Trump won't have to pay back crony campaign contributors and lobbyists.

There is the chance that things could be a hell of a lot better than they are now, and fairly soon.

I'm willing to roll the dice.

There is probably a reason for the never Trump crowd, I'm supporting whoever is against Hillary (so long as they are not worse than her). I'm sick and tired of you Trump voters chastising us Cruz voters for not being your best friends. We have spent this entire primary cycle being ridiculed, talked down to, and shouted down by Trump supporters. We've listened to you and your candidate lie about, slander, and fabricate crazy conspiracy theories about our candidate. So no, we're not on good terms right now.

Brian, Human perceptions of events are interesting. We all see through our own preconceived perspectives.

I acknowledge your feelings and perception of the situation.

However, I also admit I perceived just the opposite happening.

While both remain on the right, we both may be slightly right and wrong. I know the current Democratic candidates are wrong for America to be able to survive and thrive. I will join you in who can numerically stop Hillary or Bernie.

Thanks for commenting.
