Bearing Drift laments the state of Republican politics - why don't you trust your leaders?
What are our options for the coming year?
No one today can say for sure what 2016 will bring. It could be the start of a new era for the GOP, or it could see the party finally fall apart. We could win in November and end the Clinton dynasty, or we could perpetuate it. We could nominate the first populist since Theodore Roosevelt and watch as we lose the House and Senate at the same time. Or we could nominate a compromise candidate and come up short, as we did in 2008 and 2012.
Or we could nominate Trump and win in a landslide.
Donald Trump and Ted Cruz may not be your ideal candidates, but they appear to be hitting the right notes as 2015.
Instead of the establishment fussing that this is not how things should be, working with the wave.
Maybe the wave is doing more damage to your assumptions than Trump.
It's going to be a wild year.
More likely to end with a Trump as president-elect than Clinton.
