The Super Tuesday Republican Primary is now 3 days away and Donald Trump seems like he is in line to become the Republican nominee for President of the United Sates. If he can win a majority of Super Tuesday contest he is almost a shoe in. For most conservatives and Republicans this should be a scary thought. Trump throughout his life has supported liberal policies and liberal positions that are contrary to Republican or conservative positions. He has even called Hillary Clinton a great negotiator and supported ObamaCare.
While the reasons Trump should not be voted for by conservatives or Republicans are large, there are a few main positions that are a slap in the face to conservative values or the values of the Republican Party that he stands against. Trump has supported democrat candidates through the pervious election cycle, Trump supporter’s claim it is the cost of doing business, but when he has said that Nancy Pelosi would impeach George W. Bush, is that believable. Trump numerous times has supported stronger gun control measures, such as the assault weapons ban, how can any Republican or conservative support this or a candidate who supports this? Trump has proposed massive tariffs on foreign goods, produce, and meat, again any conservative or Republican should be scared of such a proposal. The same policies lead to the Great Depression. Food prices are high enough now; do we really want to pay $10 for a pound of hamburger or $12 for a pound of tomatoes because they come from Mexico, Canada, or other countries?
On top of this policy positions that are a slap in the face to conservatism, Trump has also taken racist and bigoted positions that have no room in the party that freed the slaves, fought for desegregation, and for the Civil Rights Movement. Trump on numerous times has retweeted messages on Twitter that have been posted by Ku Klux Klan afflicted groups, white nationalist groups, and other racist groups. Is this what conservatism and the Republican Party has become? This is what the media wants to portray the party and conservatives as, and Trump supporters have allowed this. How can conservatives and Republicans support a man, who has railed against immigrants of any kind and has on numerous occasions called Hispanics “drug dealers” and “rapist”? Or a guy who wants to ban all Muslims and make a database of Muslims in the United Sates? How can a conservative or Republican support a guy who wants such a large amount of government overreach and is so anti-immigrant that he wants to ban all foreigners unless they are white in skin color? America was built on immigrants from numerous countries, including Trump’s family, who came from Germany Also Trump wants to build a wall along the Mexican border at a cost of 8 billion dollars and force mass deportations of all immigrants, his plan would destroy the United States economy.
There are many more reasons not to support Trump, but these are some of the biggest, these positions are a slap in the face of the values of the Republican Party and the values of conservatism. Trump’s positions are a xenophobic, racist, sexist, bigoted brand of populism similar to the “Know nothing party”. A vote for trump is a vote for everything opposite of conservatism and what the Republican Party stands for. Republicans and conservatives claim that President Obama was not thoroughly vetted prior to becoming President, but they are failing to properly vet Trump. Trump has used illegal immigrants to build his “empire”, but now believes that all immigrants should be banned from the United States. Trump is wrong for conservatives and Republicans. Trump has supported Henry Reid and other high powered democrats. Trump is beholden to special interest such as big Wall Street banks and his supporters claim he has no ties to special interest. I implore you to vote against Trump on Super Tuesday.
