Dear Never Trumpers,


by Ken Carman
 I think you and the left might agree on one thing, other than “never.” Trump is right: our country has an infestation, but it’s not immigrants. It’s the worst appointments ever, it’s Trump worshipers attending Hitler-like rallies, even wearing shirts asking for his holy touch to lady’s private parts, it’s former Republican critics who now goosestep in time to idiotic barfed up talk points. It’s like they’re part of that alternate, opposite Trek universe where even the tribbles are vicious and evil, and multiplying way too fast.
 Recently I read and wrote about Never Trumper Rick Wilson’s book Everything Trump Touches Dies. Then, listening to Morning Joe, when? Oh, that’s right MORNING! …I realized Never Trumpers are a constituency that may be in for a bigger shock than even the left the morning after the 2020 election.
 I beg whatever God, or gods, there may be: prove me wrong. PLEASE.
 Of course many Never Trumpers and some progressives will blame it on whatever, but to be honest, Never Trumpers, you, or at least your party; or former party, is to blame more than anyone else. I know that’s hard to read, but it’s true. When it comes to blame, if there’s “four more years,” people will go on and on about blasé’ Biden, or or that &%$! Warren (How DARE she not be exact as to how much Native she has genetically! Even in the time of Saint Trump, how SCANDALOUS, what an EMBARRASSMENT!!! Let’s be ‘clever’ and call her ‘Pocahontas’ again!) or Harris, or Beto, or Bernie, or whomever… were SO inadequate to the task.
 Yeah, that would work so well. Just like it has for the past 3 years.
 No, no matter how much we rave, drool, and spit spittle such concerns are going to be minor, at best. Presidents have become presidents before and had similar flaws, been more inadequate. Case in point he who has an orange tribble for hair.
 Sidebar WARNING: remember why tribbles were nuisance? Stay tuned, Dear Reader, as to how that works into the more amusing angle to my muse!
 You need to be honest with yourself about this, Never Trumpers. Your party, or former party, has gone about intentionally smashing the various voting systems in this country for many, many years. Don’t bother bringing up voter fraud: the case for a massive amount of voter fraud is so thin skating on such ice would be trying to skate on water. The corruption of our voting systems has never been this bad, especially with computers constantly spinning models of how to deny the vote to politically incorrect and inconvenient voters.
 As I’m sure you know, if you’re willing to admit to it, there has been a very active efforts for many, many years to purge the rolls of politically inconvenient groups of voters, to have every precinct use voting machines with vulnerable, proprietary, software. Machines that flip votes. Yup, “Help America (not) Vote Act” MADE IT WORSE. But there’s more: sending votes off to a Tennessee Republican server to be counted at a crucial point in an election, closing down precincts so only select Republicans count votes, well working machines going to politically correct areas, too few machines: in poor shape, to politically incorrect voting precincts, installing appointees with no integrity into positions where they are responsible for election integrity, politicians who think their main job is doing whatever necessary to recreate our two party system into a one party only system. A highly organized effort in Republican controlled states limiting voting hours and early voting, using Crosscheck, Exact Match to get rid of huge groups of politically incorrect voters: most recent tally at least 17 million not served “you can’t vote anymore” papers. They find out when they go to vote: too late to do anything about it. And “doing something” is tough: many reports of people “proving” they have a right to vote getting it back and then when they try to vote next time finding out they were automatically kicked out again. And perhaps most offensive: many Republicans and Cons were OK with having someone responsible for election integrity in Georgia running their own election. “Someone” with a history of Exact Matching large numbers of voters off the rolls and many other tactics. Whatever assured his own election.
 Short list. I didn’t even mention the severe, computer model-based gerrymandering. Oh, guess I just did. And your party, or former party, Dear Never Trumpers, has been deep into this effort, well “efforts” would be more accurate.
 So here comes my question…
 Is it a surprise with this “whatever serves the cause no matter how corrupt” attitude someone comes along with the power, the influence, no morals or ethics, who has powerful, rich, friends who he owes allegiance to interested in installing, as Hillary Clinton said, a “puppet?” Friends that love to have their own inside guy grab the golden ring via taking advantage of the corrupt infrastructure your party, or former party, has built over the years? Why, you might even get some guy with bad, evil, tribble hair! One who has made noise about, essentially, becoming Emperor, being the “chosen one,” buying Iceland, how Nazis and Klansman can be “good people,” telling Jews they have to be loyal to regimes, tell Americans to “go home,” or have encourage cultists to assault, even murder, those he tells them to hate.
 Another short, abbreviated, list.
 This is a danger your party, your former party, helped to create. Instead of a president Republicans, Conservatives, that Buckley, Goldwater and Dirksen could have been proud of you got tribble hair man: filling important positions with loyalists. And the tribbles multiply.
 In the good Trek reality tribbles only “sin” was how horny they were. Otherwise they were relatively inoffensive. In alternate reality where Trump rules they are beyond a dangerous pest. And they are multiplying with more sycophant judges appointed than any president in American history. And I’m sure the infrastructure they command: that your party, or former party, created, will be going full tilt boogie to speed up the evil tribble procreation train.
 Couldn’t you guys have created a Klingon ship, or we simply transport them all to the gulags in Russia?
 Where, “They’ll be no tribble at all.”
