Trump has pulled off of one of the most – if not the most – stunning political upsets in history. He deserves a fresh start and a fresh evaluation.
I will give him that. He has earned it.
You know, this site is nine years old. Only during its disorganized first year was a Republican in in the White House. We have pretty much always been outsiders standing for a set of core values and a governing ethos. This site has existed as a means to decry centralized power and big government abuses. I does NOT exist to root for a team. In case anyone misunderstands, this is not a site in support of the RNC.
This is not televised sports and we aren’t cheering for a team. We stand for values and those values remain unchanged. We still stand for free markets, free trade, free speech, free people and free minds. These values can only flourish in a world were massive government isn’t crushing them underfoot. We still oppose centralized administrative power.
I will not allow this site to drift into knee-jerk pro-Trumpism. We will praise him when he supports our values and disparage him when he doesn’t.
The logic that “attacking Trump helps Hillary Clinton” is no longer operable. That part is over. Now disparaging Trump is nothing more than disparaging the regime in power. That is something we have always done here and, when appropriate, we will continue to do.
So, yes, Donald J. Trump deserves a fresh look and a fresh evaluation. I mean that.
Those, however, who come here to defend Trump even when he is hostile to the values that are the foundation of the Real Revo are trolls.
Don’t be a troll.
