OK old people. I'm going to try to explain it to you.
I know it will be like explaining the internet, Microsoft Excel and other technological advances you've steadfastly refused to understand, but were ultimately vain in trying to ignore, but we're going to explain Donald Trump to all you fuddy duddies, especially you establishment republican types.
You may hate Trump.
You may loathe him.
AND you may have every right and reason to do so.
But he is still better than the slop you've been serving since Ronald Reagan took office.
That's 30 years of slop. From the Bushes (both father and son DRENCHED in nepotism) to McCain, to the billionaire white boy socialist named Romney, you have served SLOP to the real, everyday republicans of America and they've eaten it up because it was better than voting for genuine socialists.
But you throw in the shitshow that was known as Boehner and Ryan, and the absolute cowardice that the republican house has been since, not to mention Gen X has seen talk from only Rush Limbaugh, and only massive expansion of government under Bush Jr., it is very apparent the republican party just isn't cutting it.
You couldn't protect the constitution if your wife's loyalty depended upon it.
No matter what you say, no matter what politician you throw forth, you have lost 100% of the GENUINE, REAL republican American constituency, and we are now voting for anybody (and I mean ANYBODY) who isn't a career politician and actually might make a change.
The key thing to understand (and I know that's hard for you lazy, fat establishment types, not to mention baby boomers who are stuck in the Nixon era) is that no matter how much you HATE and LOATHE Trump, the American republicans HATE AND LOATHE you even more. They're sick of your non-performance, they're sick of your corruption, and they're sick of you impotence and incompetence. They are so sick of you they'd rather vote for what is clearly an opportunist over your "best" candidate you present forward because he is at least "different."
And that is how sad and pathetic you've been these past 30 years.
It merely takes somebody who is "different" to beat your pretty boy polished Cruz.
The confusion you have is how can a charlatan like Trump just come in and whisk away the vote. How can somebody with a very grey business back ground, not to mention crass and lewd demeanor, present such a threat to the establishment Republican party.
You need to realize the problem is not with Trump, but that it is with you. YOU are the problem. YOU are the ones who failed. You are so corrupt, but more so, inept and cowardly that the real Americans would rather vote for a potty-mouthed, straight shooter, than any of the "Slop v. 3.0" you're going to serve up this round.
I know most of you purport to espouse "free market" ideals. Perhaps you should for once follow those ideals and listen to the customers and deliver what they want.
Oh, wait, that's right. You're a political party no better than the democrats.
Guess we're just going to have to replace you.
