I am becoming more and more convinced that Hillary is going to win the election. This isn’t because she is a great leader or that she even comes close to representing the best interest of the people. It is not because she is respected or admired. It comes down to one thing. The self destruction of the GOP. I am not taking about the citizens and even the leadership per say. The voters have made their decision. Trump is the nominee. The leadership as a whole have accepted that as well. It is that faction within the party that has usurped the whole idea of conservatism and redefined it in their own image. They are as the Israelites of old that refuse to be lead and are so head strong they wouldn’t even lift their eyes to look at the staff and perished in the wilderness. The far right are proving to be every bit as destructive as the far left. This faction continue to use strategem in searching for any means to steal the nomination from Trump and the people at convention. They would lie, cheat, steal and maybe even murder to get their way. I never thought the sin of self righteousness could be as destructive as wickedness but what I have witnessed even among those here in Utah has convinced me otherwise. How a group of people would rather throw an election willingly all the while saying God will bless them is at the forefront of an obscenely erratic behavior bound to bring us further painful consequences, namely Clinton naming up to 4 Supreme Court judges and the loss of the second amendment among further bondage yet to be seen. Why? Simply because they don’t want to risk the leadership of the country to Trump? Are you effing kidding me! Do you even contemplate how stupid that argument sounds in the face of a Hillary Presidency. We have become a nation that is uncomfortable in doing hard things and heaven forbid someone say the truth. We someone does we take that and spin it so much that we don’t even recognize it. Because truth is too bitter a pill to swallow. Our conservative talk show hosts with the silver tongues have walked this group to the very edge of the cliff. Some, like Glenn Beck have walked them right over the edge. Now the likes of Limbaugh, Hannity, and others are trying to pull their followers back from the edge as the reality of a Hillary victory looms ahead. They argue Trump is the guy. He is the nominee. We must stop Hillary. Yet the problem is you cannot work a people to such a fever and expect them to pivot away. That passion is addictive and hard to free a mind from. They listen to you clowns because it’s easier for you to think for them than for them to think for themselves. I am telling you now that this far right wing faction in the party have, as a majority, gotten the delegate seats at the national convention. They are absolutely willing to throw this election to prove a point. It’s their way or else. Dangerous are extremists. They are incapable of being led and unwilling to compromise. They would rather be right in saying Trump can’t beat Hillary and then go about proving it by either voting for her or voting third party. If they can steal the nomination they will, even if it causes the GOP to be torn apart. The result they want justify any means of it happening. Such extremists quote the prophets to justify their position. The best is Ezra Taft Benson who is quoted as saying “in the face of two evils don’t vote for the lesser evil, vote someone else and the Lord will bless the people.” The problem with that is be careful how you judge. Is Trump evil? You may not like him or share his values or like what he says. That does not qualify as evil. The Lord will hold us accountable for our decisions. Another apostle Neil A Maxwell reminds us we cannot remain neutral in our decisions. It is an irony that so many believe that the Mormons will be the ones to save this country. That they will save the constitution as it hangs by a thread. What I am seeing is Mormons are the ones willing to throw the election based on their pride. Kind of makes you wonder if we like the Jedi misinterpreted a prophesy. Fictional story Star Wars is, but powerful parallel. If you stayed with this post this far I hope I have given you something to think about. A Hillary presidency will not be the end of the world. We will adapt, however there is alway real consequences and for a people that don’t like the direction of the last 8 years I wonder what we will think in 8 more. We reap what we sow.
