Now that Jeb Bush (God help us) has announced his pending candidacy for President let me explain how that is the best news for true conservatism in many years and a stroke of luck for the Republican Party I personally left years ago.
First one must consider the financial trend of our economy, and the world economy. Despite the govt tortured data used to fool the masses into accepting in blind faith the claim that we are in a recovery the reality is that we, and the world are continuing a spiral that all who dig deep for news already are aware of. The latest indicator was the news from the Sydney G20 summit that your insured bank accounts are no longer really insured any more (I’ll let you search if you haven’t heard). That in fact by the time you get your official turn in line to collect your bankruptcy funds you could receive as little as 1.2% of your deposits and that likely will be in a quickly devaluing currency. In other words, your bank saving will be utterly wiped out. Much more could be noted here including the diabolical consequences of quantitative easing with charts that mirror the Weimar Republic’s cataclysmic attempt to bolster their economy through accelerated currency printing, but if you already know, then you already know. If not, you better get digging.
So how does that play into the 2016 general election especially with regard to the 2016 presidential race? Like this: Economic time bombs, either intentionally or as a result of economic stupidity at high levels have been placed in our economy. The only question is when, not if, they will go off. My current expectation, for reasons I will not muddy this particular post with is that these economic time bombs will go off in the next presidency, which if you aren’t catching the hint means in my opinion they were placed intentionally as I have commented about on twitter for years. As such I’ve also repeatedly commented on how the Obama Administration would also intentionally undermine the candidacy of Hillary Clinton, which subsequently has been occurring in my opinion, both covertly and now overtly with comments like “Americans want that new car smell in 2016.” It is even possible, though I’m not claiming it so, that the whole Benghazi fiasco was seized as on opportunity (never let a crisis go to waste) to hang an albatross (the modern negative connotation) on Hillary’s neck by introducing the ridiculous video claim (which by the way was clearly pre-canned for use) but again, I will not muddy the waters here.
So why would a Democrat President work to destroy a fellow Democrat and how does Jeb Bush help true Conservatives, and how is this a stroke of luck to a pathetic Republican party you still ask. Follow me here.
If you chose to accept the premise, even for a moment, that there are economic time bombs set to go off in our economy (whether you believe them to be intentional or just bad policy) and you chose to accept that Barrack Obama is undermining Hillary Clinton, then you must ask yourself how this plays out from a party leadership position. Remember, Barrack Obama IS the leader of the Democrat Party and his Obama For America, renamed to Organize For Action, is a clear indication of his intent to stay relevant considering his age when he leaves office. Now I’ll hold my cards close here on why I think Mr Obama would like a Republican in office during this pending extreme crisis but I will say that actions on his part that clearly hurt the Democrats leading into the 2014 elections make perfect sense from an intent standpoint in my opinion. You see, if you accept the premise that Obama wants a Republican in office during an expected severe economic crisis, even perhaps a collapse you should then recognize that it’s best to have the entire Congress in Republican control as well so the blame can easily be pinned solely on them by our leftist main stream media and believed by the ignorant masses. From there the cards play out perfectly. Note: Much blame can indeed be placed on Republicans due to their fecklessness, not their actions per se (because there isn’t much to point to).
So this brings us to Jeb Besh (shudder) and why this is good for true Conservatives and their much hated cousins the libertarians, including me, as well as a stroke of luck for the near useless Republican Party. Now if you’ve walked with me this far then lets walk some more shall we?
You see, if there are indeed economic time bombs set to go off in our economy, and if they are set to go off during the next presidency, then as I stated the party with the most power when it happens will suffer the weight of blame regardless of facts and be crippled for many years to come, perhaps permanently. Remember also that Obama has a history of relationships with radical leftists who have openly proclaimed their intent to completely change America and there is no question this requires radical action to expedite said changes if these radicals are to see it occur during their lifetime as many of them are elder to Obama and not getting any younger. As such, if a truly Conservative, liberty respecting person was to somehow win the next election, then short of an act of mercy from the Almighty, this presidency, and the party attached is doomed to failure and public disdain. Secondly, if Jeb Bush were to win the nomination, he would likely be such a weak candidate that he would lose conservatives, and libertarians, and he might even lose independents who will see so little difference between him and the Democrat nominee and simply chose to stay the Democrat course (that’s independents for you.) But, should he win, He and the Republicans will hold the bag when we discover it’s full of 8yrs of fermenting poo and a detonation device.
On the other hand, as a result of a failed Bush candidacy, the Republicans would be spared the shame of economic collapse during a GOP presidency. The political damage would shift left and they would live to fail us another day, though they would not come out unscathed, nor should they, and we conservative/libertarians would not bare majority blame as a minority voice. Plus, as we would still be a minority voice within the right side of the political spectrum when the blame is spread by the media, the reality is we will come out with the least political burns and new political leverage to either bring actual change within the Republican party or in a strengthened position to replace it all together as I have been calling for for several years now.
Footnote: If this scenario plays out as I expect, it is all the more reason to pursue a new conservative/libertarian party NOW! Why? While many say ”But look what happened with Ross Perot” I simply respond: We had a mildly frustrated electorate in 1992 compared to today, with no real options to bypass the main stream media, and even then a quirky, almost goofy candidate was able to garner 19% of the vote. If a truly articulate conservative who respects libertarians were to define a road map for a return to personal liberty and American exceptionalism then he, or she, in my opinion would still lose the general election but build the foundation for a new conservative movement in America and remember, if you’ve read this far you’re at least entertaining the notion that the next presidency is destined to fail (save an act of God) so a loss with a strong showing is arguably a win.
As such, a well run campaign would greatly weaken the progressive powers now controlling the GOP (another discussion we’ll sidestep for today) which will actually save the GOP from itself or prove it’s time they go the way of the Whigs. Either way, this movement back to the Constitution and personal liberty will either fold back into the GOP in a position of leadership for the GOP’s political survival or kill the GOP off and replace it. All while the Democrat Party if it wins will be bearing the majority of the blame for the economic wasteland left behind from Obama and his fellow travelers when it hits the fan.
