Is the GOP “Meltdown” Fact or Fiction?

Don’t believe everything you read in the press.

Have you noticed how the media takes delight in reporting the “meltdown” of the Republican party? That it is hopelessly divided and cannot get along, particularly with Mr. Trump, that the RNC is even going so far as to undermine him with a brokered convention, or bring Mitt Romney out of mothballs to save the party? I’m not sure any of this is actually true. After all, when was the last time the press wanted to see a Republican in the White House? So far, all of this talk of meltdowns and brokered conventions has emanated from the liberal press and parroted by Trump’s political opponents to scare a naive public to vote for them. The GOP’s convention in Cleveland in July will ultimately prove if there is any sand in their premise.

Frankly, I think it is nothing more than political drama to sell newspapers and improve television ratings. If Trump and the GOP come together in Cleveland, the press will go away with another black eye. However, if they are right, this will mark the end of the Republican Party as we know it, but I really do not see this happening. I have been a registered Republican for 44 years and in that time, I have seen both the good times and the bad. As such, I have come to the conclusion this has nothing to do with Mr. Trump whatsoever. Instead, it’s all about getting Hillary into the White House, someone with some excessive baggage complicating their campaign. Therefore a distraction is in order. The strategy by the press is an old but effective one, “Divide and Conquer.” We can only be divided if we allow ourselves to believe the poppycock of the press. Now is the time to be smart, not naive.

Keep the Faith!
