Three Cheers For National Review.

Back in September of 2015, [Obama/Trump. Two Sides of the Same Coin.] I opined that the American people seem to have once again fallen under the sway of a cult of personality by their new found love for Donald Trump.

It's been suggested that Obama may see a Hillary Clinton victory as an endorsement of his policies; a third Obama term, if you will. But, the same can almost be said of a Trump victory. While we can't be sure at this point, what actual policies Trump would support, a Trump victory would be the third term for the narcissistic empty suit agenda.

National Review, the self described "most widely read and influential magazine and web site for conservative news, commentary, and opinion" has taken the controversial step of going full throttle against Trump. Following in the footsteps of it's founder, the brillant Conservative, William F. Buckley Jr., the magazine could not have done otherwise.

Donald Trump is not a Conservative by any stretch of the imagination. How could any reasonable person argue with that position?

Sarah Palin's endorsement of Trump does not change that fact.

Kathleen Parker may be right when she wrote:

"William F. Buckley’s conservatism seems headed for the door......"

but, her putting the blame on National Review seems to me to be an attempt to get back at the magazine for having dropped her column in 2008.

In my heart of hearts, I'd love to see Hillary Clinton indicted over her email scandal before she gets the Democrat nomination. Donald Trump might be the only candidate the Republicans could nominate that would not trounce Clinton. Trump might have a chance against Bernie Sanders.......I'd like to think Americans are too smart to elect someone who is to the Left of Obama. Honestly, I'm not encouraged.

I try not to make comparisons between any politician and Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin. That always seems to be a bit over the top for me. In this case, however, I might make a slight exception. If there's any politician who reminds me of Benito Mussolini, it's Donald Trump.
