Trump vs. GOP Elite: Like Pro Wrestling

by Dr. Alan Keyes: I don't believe that the GOP quisling leaders want to thwart the nomination of Donald Trump. For years, they have pretended to espouse conservative positions, while by their actions they have betrayed pretty much everything conservatives are supposed to espouse. Now Trump comes along spouting conservative rhetoric, while his lifelong actions have been in opposition to pretty much everything he is now pretending to espouse. For all their pretended fisticuffs, Donald Trump and the GOP quislings could be mistaken for a match made in heaven. Except that left-leaning elitists don't really believe in heaven.

Watching Trump wrestle with the GOP quislings is, well, like watching a professional wrestling match on TV. You have to wonder whether it should be classified "as entertainment, not a competitive sport," as one account I found puts it:Wrestling does have rules.... However, the rules are loosely defined and loosely enforced. The skills of the wrestlers do not determine the outcome of the match. Instead, writers work on plots and storylines well in advance, and every match is another chapter in the story. Who wins and who loses is all in the script.... [T]he plots are predetermined, and the characters are usually not true. However, simply calling wrestling fake is like calling an action movie fake.Wrestling appears to be a form of Reality TV, with a pedigree longer than most. With this in mind, Donald Trump's entry into the GOP's nominating process is simply the clearest evidence yet that the elitist faction's sham twin-party system is also a show of the same genre. I'd say its pedigree dates back at least as far as the 2000 presidential election. This is why, in reflecting on political events in the elitist faction's faux election cycles, I keep the same thought in mind as when I watch a movie or television show: "What will the scriptwriters think of next?"

Of course, the sham election scripts are more easily anticipated, since the goal of the exercise is more restricted than pure entertainment now permits. Gone are the days, in TV shows and movies, when the "good guys always win." Indeed, as in contemporary politics, it's often made almost impossible to tell good guys from bad. That's the problem with our "God is dead" (or just barely mentionable) era.

"No principle of good" means everybody seems relatively good or bad, depending on who you'd like to pummel this week. This triumph of moral relativism is certainly true in our politics these days. But in the entertainment industry it's still the case that, as least in blockbusters vying for the worldwide box-office prize, you can be reasonably certain that you'll be ready to applaud the folks left standing at the end of the story.

But for years, elections and their aftermath have been leaving many people in America more anxious to "throw out da bums" they just elected. Voters rightly feel that they have no choice that leaves them feeling right. And even when they do feel right, the feeling often turns out to be wrong. This is a symptom of the end of representative government in the United States, as least as far as the people at large are concerned. Whoever wins, the winner always seems to be the people already in control.

Elections don't matter that much, to paraphrase Nancy Pelosi's dream. For the elitist faction, it's a recurring dream. More and more, however, Americans are wising up to the fact that it's a recurring nightmare for our country. The political sham is, as it were, a stasis pod, from which America's liberty, indeed the liberty of all humanity, is not intended to emerge alive.

If Trump is elected this November, the disgruntled voters backing him will lose their excuse for anger. Having invested in a faux political diamond, they will, for quite a while, be loath to admit it isn't real. As they now fight, from desperate hope and angry resentment, against the truth of his past record, they will then fight, from false pride mingled with shame, against the truth of his continuation, Obama style, of the elitist faction's agenda for tyranny. Using the same legislative coalition Obama has been able to rely upon (enlarged by GOP members too timid, at least for a while, to oppose "their" president), Trump will be unstoppable. He has repeatedly promised to continue Obama's abusive executive diktats, so the assault on constitutional integrity will also continue.

Moreover, as Trump's true character becomes undeniably clear, the conservative political world will come apart. Truth will be repeatedly sacrificed in a brawl over "Who lost America," made all the more uncontainable by the fact that neither the preponderance of those "conservatives" who now support Trump, nor regrettably enough of those who oppose him, are doing so on the basis of America's Founding ideals – those defined in "America's creed," the Declaration of Independence. Those principles provide the ground for unity and hope on which America's goodwill and spirit can be revived. But no one still acting in the elitist faction charade has taken their stand expressly upon them.

Even if Trump doesn't win, however, the future doesn't look much brighter. The script right now has him reeling from recent losses, so that talk of "going third party" is again in the air. If he were eventually to do so, the impetus of pride might be at work in that scenario as well. It could move those who have supported him to break with the party that has rejected their judgment. Whether Hillary then triumphs because Trump hives off enough self-styled "conservatives," or the GOP quislings triumph behind Cruz or someone else, the GOP will stand to govern from a fractured base, very possibly in the context of an electorate seething with discontent.

America's better destiny, founded upon its dedication to the better hopes of mankind, will suffer in any case. But the elitist faction powers-that-be will be well positioned to reap advantage from what might appear to be the worst political fragmentation in America's history. That fragmentation seems more irreparable because of the decline of the nation's dedication to the premises of God-endowed right, including liberty, that were once the supple glue upholding the union of our hearts and spirit.

If only we were asking now "Who will save America?" – now before it just becomes a question of what we have lost. But to ask and answer that question, we will have to revive our trustful faith in the One who was already, and still and always is, our only true salvation, be it as Americans or simply as human beings. Only by that revival of our creed will we recognize in action that the answer for our nation's good is not in any roster of political stars the elitist faction deceitfully sets – but in ourselves; and in our faith; and in our Creator, God.
