Donald Trump Supporters Refuse to be Told by GOP Functionaries Backing Other Candidates How They Should Vote in the Primary Elections

Trump supporters are angry at being told by GOP functionaries and/or moneyed interests how they should vote in the Presidential primary elections.

The New York Times has the story at Rank and File Republicans Tell Party Elites: We’re Sticking With Donald Trump.

The establishment GOP seems to have totally miscalculated and misjudged the current political situation, acting like paternalists rather than savvy politicians who should know better.

The more that so-called party "elites" have challenged Trump for being an outsider, the stronger he has gotten to be. We posted about this development before at LawPundit. Just sayin'.

The self-thinking man on the street in America is not about to be told how to vote by a political Party machine, be that machine the Democrats or the Republicans.

That's democracy. That is the way it is supposed to be. The PEOPLE decide.

Many people seem to be fed up with the failures of the established parties.
Instead, they have chosen their "champion" in the person of Donald Trump.

To see why (or, depending on your political allegiance, why not),
see e.g. his Wichita Rally speech.

Frankly, none of the other candidates of either political party, except for Bernie Sanders, who has surprised us by the quality of his speeches, speaks that well.

We were impressed by Trump's take that much of what we call "politics" in this world is actually simply "business" among States or nations, and yet in the USA we permit that business to be conducted by "political" amateurs rather than by experienced deal-making professionals.

The USA has made many bad political and economic deals domestically and internationally because American politicians functioning as deal-makers were not up to the task. It was never their expertise. Quite the contrary.

An example here is Democratic Party Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, who operated out of a private server in her home in the course of what might be called "kitchen diplomacy by a greenhorn" in the years that she held the position of Secretary of State of the USA.

We get the government we vote for.

  • Sky Earth Native America 2 :
    American Indian Rock Art Petroglyphs Pictographs
    Cave Paintings Earthworks & Mounds as Land Survey & Astronomy
    Volume 2, Edition 2, 262 pages, by Andis Kaulins.

  • Both volumes have the same cover except for the labels "Volume 1" viz. "Volume 2".
    The image on the cover was created using public domain space photos of Earth from NASA.


    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically
    in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
