The Republican elite seems to be hell-bent on putting a gun in its mouth and blowing their collective brainstems out. As of right now, Jeb Bush seems poised to take the lead to make the Republican nominee for 2016.
I don’t know much about Jeb Bush, other than he was governor of Florida. That is a big red flag to me right there because Florida is know as a conservative state, except when it comes to immigration, Social Security, and Medicare. So already I am seeing a welfare state supporting open borders multiculturalist.
Most current polls seem to push him to the top. My guess is that people are missing George W. Bush and so they think he is like his brother. That may be the case, that may not be the case.
But Junior was nothing more than a puppet. I suspect that Jeb is not so much, but I suspect we’d need to see what kind of people surround him.
I don’t trust polls. Most polls are conducted with a sample size too small against the wrong demographics, usually calling people between 9 and 5 on Mondays and Tuesdays. You’re only going to get retirees and/or welfare recipients. They do not reflect America, despite their growing status.
Look, I know that the Republicans will pull out all the stops to get their pre-ordained candidate to win the nomination. I know that Ron Paul probably wouldn’t have won in 2012, but at the same time, he could have secured a few states, were it not for trickery in those states (Maine comes to mind).
This is the lesson I learned from Ron Paul’s run: the Republican machine has a pre-selected candidate who will win. They have no interest in letting a non-puppet winning because it isn’t profitable for their cronies and it takes away their power.
That is why Jeb Bush is the current frontrunner. He may not be in a year, but he is now. His name is recognizable but he is a fresh face.
Never mind he has done nothing in national politics in any capacity. Never mind nobody knows what he stands for. He’s the frontrunner.
