With God As My Witness, I Will Never Vote For Donald Trump.

Many on the right have come forward in the past few days to outline why they will never vote for Trump, and their reasons are articulate, principled, eloquent, and moving. If it wasn’t already abundantly clear from the last eight months, let me join the chorus; I will never vote for Donald Trump.


I will never vote for Donald Trump, not even if he’s the Republican nominee. I will never vote for Donald Trump, not even if Ronald Reagan and William F. Buckley rise from the grave and beg me to support him. I will never vote for Donald Trump, not even if it means he forms a third party and runs as the narcissist sociopath he truly is. I will never vote for Donald Trump, no matter how many times the liberal media declares his inevitability and his immunity to scrutiny and attack or how many times the “conservative” media ignores his record and beliefs to fellate him on-air.

I will never vote for Donald Trump because he’s a pro-gun control, pro-single-payer health care, pro-eminent domain, pro-abortion, and pro-statism liberal who will immediately revert to form when he’s finished selling his fauxservatism to people he patently views as rubes. I will never vote for Donald Trump, because absolutely nothing he can say or do will cover the fact he is obviously and blatantly lying every time his thin lips move and his freakishly tiny hands pound the podium.

I will never vote for Donald Trump because it’s utterly obvious that he lacks the temperament, judgment, and basic sanity to be placed as steward over 7,700 nuclear weapons and the rest of the awesome power of the United States military. I will never vote for Donald Trump because he’s a draft-dodging blowhard who was chasing strange in Midtown when John McCain was having his arms broken by the Vietnamese.

I will never vote for Donald Trump to toe the “he’s my nominee” line because if he wins my party’s nomination it means the GOP has sold itself to a soulless, utterly unprincipled liberal narcissist bent on its destruction and that of conservatism. I will never vote for Donald Trump, because it would require the complete abdication of every political value that informs my life; a reverence for the Constitution and the Republic and for limited-government conservative principles that shaped this nation and that continue to represent the only viable opposition to the galloping growth of the state. I will never vote for Donald Trump because the solution to a Washington’s crony capitalism problems isn’t to elect an even more egregious and lavishly corrupt crony capitalist.

I will never vote for Donald Trump because he’s created a political culture that revels in its own willingness to be conned and governed only by its talk-radio-fueled rage. I will never vote for Donald Trump because he’s stoked the darkest and most evil corners of his fandom with praise and approval.

I will not vote for Donald Trump, no matter how often his fanboys spam my timeline, voicemail and inbox with their delusional theories ranging from white genocide to chemtrails to the international Jewish conspiracy to Obama’s super-secret plan to impose sharia law during his third term. I will not vote for Trump no matter how many insults Trumpkins throw at me. (Really, I noticed I was bald a long time ago, and that one doesn’t sting. Up your insult game.)

Now, unlike Donald Trump, I’ve never cast a vote for a Democrat. I’ve never worked for a Democrat. I’ve never donated to a Democrat. I’ve never been registered to vote as a Democrat. I’ve never been a cheerleader for a Democratic candidate or officeholder. I’ve fought them in large races and small since I entered politics.

Politics is tough, and I’ve done it a long time. I don’t care about being attacked in the course of campaigns. I never wanted to live in some white-glove political drawing room with a handy fainting couch; I give as good as I get, and I’ve spent years making liberal Democrats clutch their pearls and lose their minds. I will not vote for Hillary Clinton, or Bernie Sanders, or whatever flotsam washes up from their process after she’s indicted or he ascends to the comet.

I have opposed Trump from the first day of his wretched, crapulous campaign. I have opposed Trump when his clownish minions called my clients seeking to have me fired. I have opposed The Donald when his slavish of Trumpbart stooges ran story after story attacking me, and unleashed their fever-swamp yokels on my email, my phone, and my family.

I will continue to oppose Trump, implacably and unceasingly.

I will not bend. I will not cease this fight. I will never embrace this thuggish, venal, gibbering psychotic, and I will not countenance those who do. I don’t care if I’m the last Republican in America standing to resist this man, but with almighty God as my witness, I will not vote for Donald Trump.

  1. Rick who? Rick Wilson? AKA “Flip Wilson”? Oh…gotcha.

    Google is a modern wonder. Ol’ Rick Wilson was a BIG backer of Jeb Bush. The same Jeb Bush who just dropped out of the Republican primary a couple of days back. Just a wee bit of “sour grapes”, Rick? Maybe a vineyard or two of “sour grapes”, Rick?

    I will give you credit, Rick. At least you backed a constitutionally-eligible candidate in that Jeb Bush was at least an Article II “natural born citizen”, a constitutional hurdle that both Cruz and Rubio miserably fail hands down. For more on this issue, see:


    But, back to Rick Wilson…here’s an enlightening article on the “embittered Gollum-In-Glasses protecting ‘My Precious’ Jeb”, aka Rick Wilson, at Breitbart:

    Why We Lose: Top GOP Consultant Rick Wilson Trashes Republican Base

    NEWS FLASH!, Rick: Trump supporters can’t guarantee that Trump will fulfill all of his campaign pledges. But, Trump supporters are absolutely positive that the other Republican candidates…Rubio, Cruz, et al…will follow through on at least some of their campaign platforms. Like legalizing millions of illegal aliens sucking away billions in Federal and State freebies while U.S. citizens labor and toil to house, clothe, feed, and give free medical coverage to people who illegally entered our country…and who remain here illegally. The same illegal aliens that once they are legalized by Republicans, will vote for Democrats who will give them more and more welfare freebies as payment in kind. Not to mention the bloody crime wave that illegal aliens have wrought on this country…

    The Shocking Numbers On Crimes Committed By Convicted Criminal Mexican Illegal Aliens Against American Citizens

    We have seen the enemy, Rick. And you and your kind are it.

    We are tired of being lied to by the Republican Party. We are tired of being marginalized and ignored. We’re tired of eating the crumbs that you drop from your well-laid tables as you sip your expensive wines that we pay for with our sweat and blood. We’re tired of burying our fellow American crime victims so your bleeding heart liberalism to assist criminal illegal aliens can feel vindicated.

    One of Trump’s overwhelming positive qualities is: Both the Dimocrats and the RepubliCONs hate Trump. Just another check in Trump’s column.

    Rick, you reference, “…pro-single-payer health care, pro-eminent domain, pro-abortion, and pro-statism liberal who will immediately revert to form when he’s finished selling his fauxservatism to people he patently views as rubes.” It was George W. Bush appointed Supreme “Chief Justice” Idiot, John Roberts, who provided the swing vote for Obummer Care. The RepubliCONs have controlled the House and Senate since November 2014…”What have they done to reverse any of your issues above?” What changed when George W. Bush’s administration had a RepubliCON-controlled Congress for 6 of his 8 years?

    Rick, you amazingly dare to mention “temperament, judgment, and basic sanity to be placed as steward over 7,700 nuclear weapons and the rest of the awesome power of the United States military” in the same paragraph as you mention the traitor John “McNasty” McCain who you apparently idolize. “McNasty” is the nickname that McCain’s fellow U.S. Senators gave him. Sure Rick, we need a psychopath that chants, “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran” in charge of 7,700 nuclear weapons. You’re apparently ok with that.

    As one of his fellow POW’s stated, “I can verify that John has an infamous reputation for being a hot head. He has a quick and explosive temper that many have experienced first hand. Folks, quite honestly that is not the finger I want next to that red button.”

    It would take much, much more to discuss all of the red herring issues that Rick Wilson, paid shill for RepubliCON Party approved candidates, stated in this article. But, one last thought. Rick, when you state, “I will never embrace this thuggish, venal, gibbering psychotic, and I will not countenance those who do.” Are you referring to George W. Bush who pathologically lied about WMDs to illegally invade Iraq in 2003, a quagmire in which we still flounder 13 years later and which has resulted in the deaths of over a million people including over 6,000 American soldiers and has resulted in the new poster child for the bogus War on Terror known as “ISIS”?

    Don’t argue semantics with me, hear it from retired LA felony prosecutor, Vincent Bugliosi…

    The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder – Trailer

    By the way, Rick…I voted for George W. Bush twice…in 2000 and in 2004. Then, I woke up.

    “We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth…
    For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth;
    to know the worst; and to provide for it.”
    – Patrick Henry

    We’re actually arguing semantics, Rick. If you want to have a say in who wins the POTUS election this year, buy some stock in Diebold, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the CIA/NSA/military-industrial-complex. They manufacture voting machines. Their company motto? “The end justifies the means.”

  2. Senator_Blutarsky

    Much to do about nothing, Rick Wilson.

    And Wilson has deliberately MISSTATED positions on Trump, such as being ” pro gun control”.

    Wilson, from his silly tirade, appears to be just another “establishment RepubliCON” who must have preferred the Bush criminal family, the Mccains, Romneys and the usual cast of sordid closet Socialist characters.

    The ones who have supported WIDE OPEN BORDERS, bankster bailouts, fraudulent “Free Trade” agreements, and a plethora of police state measures. Oh…and never ending wars so that no-bid contracts can be given to “preferred” vendors like halliburton.

    Ricky boy………….the rank-and-file middle class ” Republicans ” are obviously SICK of you establishment apologists, who are merely DEMOCRATS IN DRAG- and that includes Cruz, Rubio and everyone else who announced candidacy, but Trump.

    I have not decided for whom, if I even bother to vote, in November. If it is a Republican, Trump is the only one I would consider.

    I may vote John McAfee, Libertarian.

    Wilson is just another stunned establishment clown who has butt-hurt over Trump changing the national narrative. Same with apologists like Erickson, beck, Barton, Hannity, Limbaugh and the ilk, who are just paid toadies and cheap propaganda mouthpieces. None care about true Liberty, only preserving the status quo………such has really worked out well, hasnt it ?

    As Author Frantz Fanon notes, “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.”

    “The fact is that the average man’s love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. He is not actually happy when free; he is uncomfortable, a bit alarmed, and intolerably lonely. Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty– and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies.”
    — H.L. Mencken, Baltimore Evening Sun, Feb. 12, A. D. 1923

  3. Simply said Rick, you are the problem with the Republican Party.
