It’s Time For The Republican Party to Unite Behind Trump Now

There are those on “the right,” who claim to be “conservative,” who have said they will not under any circumstances vote for former President Donald J. Trump.

In fact, there is an entire site called Republican Voters Against Trump, full of testimonials from people who are supposedly Republicans about just how abhorrent they find the 45th president to be. Their grievances against Trump could have easily been compiled by an editor in the New York Times newsroom, or perhaps by a staff writer for Rachel Maddow.

Trump wants to “terminate the Constitution,” a voter named Kim from South Carolina claims.

“It’s all about Donald Trump, It’s not about America,” Emet from Maryland says.

January 6th “was an insurrection” and Trump was responsible for it, says another voter named Chuck from Nebraska.

“Trump would absolutely 100 percent sign a federal abortion ban,” Jessica from Ohio claims.

Trump “is a threat to the United States,” says a voter named Ed from Texas.

“I see a president that’s gonna cause a civil war,” Stephen from South Carolina says.

“I don’t think that the man has the moral character required to function in the Oval Office,” says a voter named Hank from Tennessee.

The list goes on with similar delusional testimonials warning about supposed Trump threats—should he return to the White House.

I’m not going to dignify each of these with a response, but here is a brief defense that should alleviate some of these imagined concerns—all of which are media myths.

Number one: Trump never said he wanted to “terminate the Constitution.” He rightfully said that the 2020 election was not conducted fairly, and he questioned whether the Constitution would allow a new election to occur due to the high number of irregularities that were uncovered.

And for the record, Al Gore challenged the 2000 presidential election, and Hillary Clinton maintains that the 2016 election was stolen by an “illegitimate president.”

Number two: Trump did not cause an insurrection. He held a massive rally for his supporters, who wondered how a man who barely campaigned and does not appear to be well-liked by anyone could somehow defeat an incumbent president who won 18 of 19 bellwether counties and became the first incumbent president in 100 years to increase his vote total from the previous election and still “lose.” He told them to “peacefully and patriotically” head over to the Capitol Building so they could watch Congress have a debate about election laws that were violated or changed at the 11th hour to benefit the Democrats.

Number three: Trump has stated very clearly that he would not sign any federal abortion legislation and that the matter should be left up to the states.

Now, allow me to enlighten these poor lost souls, as well as others who have been living under a rock for the past three and a half years and may have forgotten just how good things were during the Trump years.

Under Trump, the prices of gas and groceries were affordable and inflation was under control.

Middle-class family income increased by nearly $6,000—more than five times greater than the Obama/Biden administration.

Under Trump, we were energy dominant; the labor force participation rate reached its highest number on record at 160 million, and jobless claims hit their lowest level in half a century.

African-American, Hispanic-American, and Asian-American unemployment all reached their lowest levels ever recorded—the unemployment rate for women was at a 65-year low—and wages grew at their fastest rate in a decade.

Under Trump, the border was secure, our military was rebuilt, our national defense spending increased, and our enemies knew not to mess with us.

Under Trump, there was relative peace in the Middle East. Israel was not fighting for its survival, and Saudi Arabia was on the verge of becoming one of its allies.

Under Trump, there was no war in Ukraine—just a made-up story about Vladimir Putin and Russian collusion—and then another made-up story about Volodymyr Zelenskyy and a quid pro quo that never occurred.

Under Trump, there was a sense of pride, passion, and love for our country. Sure, Hollywood elites, the leftist corporate media, and campus crazies made a lot of noise and empty threats and masqueraded in pink pussy cat hats—but that’s all it was. Go ahead, move to Canada. See how much we care.

America is for patriots—not communists and socialists!

But whatever goodwill and positive sentiments were built up during the Trump presidency have quickly evaporated under Joe Biden.

Gas and groceries have become unaffordable. Thanks to Biden’s disastrous Green New Deal policies, our strategic petroleum reserve is depleted. Inflation is through the roof, reaching as high as 9 percent. Mortgage rates are skyrocketing.

Our porous border is nonexistent. Terrorists and criminals can seemingly walk right in with everything short of the red carpet rolled out for them. Hotels that were built for tourists are now homes for illegal migrants. Nursing students are slaughtered by violent men who have no right to be in this country.

We have a president who can barely walk or speak, and a vice president who’s just as helpless.

We have a corrupt Justice Department, in tandem with radical Democrat prosecutors who want to throw the former president in jail for imagined crimes that will never be tried again in a court of law.

We have an administration that embraces DEI at every turn, and the result, not surprisingly, is the dumbing down of standards in virtually every industry.

Merit, unique skill sets, and expertise are considered antiquated and irrelevant—checking off all the right boxes is all that matters now.

The world is in chaos. Our foreign policy is weak, ineffective, and influenced by professional leftist agitators and ignorant campus freaks, whose only talent involves leaving college quads full of trash and filth—and shrieking historically illiterate slogans that call for wiping Israel off the map.

And while all of this is happening, the man you say is “decent,” says not a peep, and does nothing to bring the American hostages home. Instead, he worries about his flailing support with young voters and the black community, so he goes and gives uninspiring race-baiting commencement addresses at historically black colleges to try to win back their support.

There is no denying that under Trump, America was stronger, safer, wealthier, and more prosperous. But by voting against his personality and not against his policies, you’re not only voting against your wallet; you’re voting against every single hard-working American whose life has now become unaffordable under Bidenomics.

Is your hatred for one man really worth shrinking your bank account? Is it worth letting our country become overrun with illegal migrants? Is it worth hurting small business owners and factory workers who cannot afford a tax increase?

To all those who wished that the Republican nominee for president was Governor Ron DeSantis, or God forbid, Nikki Haley, who finally came out and endorsed Trump—their time may come again soon.

But this is Trump’s time right now. And if you really want to help the country, then do the right thing and rally your friends and family around the only candidate who has the best shot at reversing this sorry state of affairs our country currently finds itself in.

No one is asking you to love Trump or join the MAGA movement, although you’re certainly welcome. We’re just asking you to put your petty grievances aside for one day and to support the guy who loves this country in favor of the other guy who is destroying it—along with his enablers.

Stop worrying about what your colleagues, associates, friends, and family will think of you, and start worrying about how to save this great country that we love.

It’s time for the Republican Party to unite behind Trump.

  1. You go, preacher! Any chance that anyone who’s not already a choir member will hear you?

  2. Unfortunately, while I agree with every point made in the article, TDS runs deep in a lot of people who cannot separate their feelings from what their rational mind tells them is reality. Why this is so, I can’t explain-- I’ve bemoaned the “cult of personality” aspect of our elections since Andrew Jackson–as I’ve always believed it was my duty to vote for the individual with the best ideas/ plan of action for the country, whatever I might think of their personality. I can remember one woman confiding in me that she voted for Bill Clinton because of his smile & I honestly wanted to slap her sillier but a lot of people vote based on reasoning just as ridiculous.

  3. Unfortunately, the author’s desire to “enlighten these poor souls” who viscerally hate Trump is a “fools’ errand”. TDS resembles the symptoms of a terminal disease, and the people afflicted are way too stupid and brainwashed to ever be redeemed. I hate to say it, but I think we are “totally screwed “!!
