Forgetting the Buckley Rule

While our border is a joke and Muslim Extremists threaten the civilized world, America is threatened in a more personal way by a coming identity change that will effectively eliminate the Constitution and render the House and Senate a lesser branch of the Federal Government.  That means that we the people lose our ability to choose the kind of country we want as the Supreme Court substitutes liberal politics for the Constitution. 

With the Supreme Court up for grabs this was a bad year to forget the Buckley Rule:  “Nominate the most conservative candidate who is electable.”

We can argue about whether Donald Trump is a Conservative, but it really doesn't matter.  He isn't going to win. 

Trump has one third of the Republican voters behind him and a longstanding 60% disapproval rating against him.  Too bad.  With the Democrats nominating the most unattractive candidate it could find, this was an election a Conservative could have won.

The average Trump Zombie has never heard of William F Buckley Jr... He's not a TV star.

I truly miss Marco Rubio. And not just because he's adorable. He was so electable.

He was my first choice... And I think he would have been the nominee if the Buckley rule had been first and foremost in people's minds.
