By John Paul Shimek – Donald J. Trump ‘short-circuited’ a reference to constitutional law and order, the balance of power, voter enfranchisement, and the rights enshrined in America’s third greatest milestone of liberty, the Bill of Rights.
If those upholding the second amendment rally in opposition to Hillary Clinton in November by electing Donald Trump, they will end her campaign against gun rights. And that will be a ‘horrible’ day for Clinton and her supporters. But if they fail to do so, and she does succeed Barack Obama as our next Commander in Chief, they might yet succeed in shutting down her judicial appointment if they can seat enough people in the US Congress to represent their interests. That might prove a still more ‘horrible’ day for an over-enthusiastic President Hillary Clinton.
That’s how American democracy works.
Apparently, the left and the liberal news media don’t get that, however. To hear them tell the story, Trump wasn’t ‘short-circuiting’ a reference to the architecture of American freedom, he was blowing a dog whistle in the ears of some fringe nutcase with a gun. (They probably think that anyone with a gun is a potential assassin.)
