I hear a lot of complaining about the fact that the sherbet-colored abomination’s campaign was largely driven by an enemy state. What people need to understand is that the enemy states purchasing offices for puppets is the only logical conclusion of the Roberts Court’s Citizens United decision.
Many Revolution-period Americans were born in Europe. There is a single reason the U.S. Constitution expressly restricts the office of President to “natural born citizens.” That was to prevent European powers from installing foreign princes to the U.S. Presidency. The laws put in place to limit the power to purchase political offices have been winnowed away since World War II. Once the Roberts Court declared the de facto sale of political offices “Constitutional,” all that was needed was a “natural born citizen” who intensely hated this country, was at least a C-list celebrity, and could be made popular in white supremacist circles.
The only obstacle to this plan is a Republican who places the country ahead of his party.
But Ronald Reagan made loyalty to the nation, the Constitution, and one’s personal ethics secondary with his so-called 11th Commandment, “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”
In order to follow this, one must condone child molestation, bribery (though, again, the Roberts Court declared this legal for the foreseeable future), and even treason.
Putin’s installation of that tangerine nightmare was perfectly legal according to the Roberts Court. And any Republican is effectively muzzled by the “party above country” policy instituted by Reagan.
