To the Editor:
In 2020, I prepared a presentation on why Trump lost and spoke to Republican clubs, service groups and a TV program in Vermont with that information. I concluded the Dems will do anything to prevent Trump from running again. The recent indictments are part of their strategy to derail his quest for another term. They are committed to prevent him from ever holding another office. The ends justify the means in achieving their objective.
Republicans other than Trumpers are mute on a golden opportunity in taking back the White House. Everything is lining up in their favor (economy, foreign policy, corruption, green restrictions) and only a few have looked ahead for a campaign without Trump. We all know there are 6 key states required to win the Presidency. Even with Trump’s indictments and trial dates interfering with his campaigning, he could still be on the ballots. However, the Dem’s aren’t dumb…..they will bend rules to take his name off those 6 key state ballots. As stated above, the Dem’s are committed to torpedo Trump….by hook or by crook.
What are Republicans going to do? Trumpers and the press are out to kill Ron DeSantis’ candidacy. He’s the only hope they have to win. Trump is for Trump and no other….he could care less as long as he can run for President again. Leaders have to speak up like Governors, Senators and Congressmen and take back the party from the Trumpers.
The charges against Trump may not stick but in the eyes of public opinion, half believe he broke the law, and many independents agree with them. This spells a doomed Trump candidacy and if he’s off the ballot in the key 6 states the end is only a formality.
Choice is therefore an Obama 4th term in 2024 or win with a Republican non-Trumper. We get what we accept.
