The ultimate political objective is Donald Trump exiting the Oval Office.  Reasonable Americans should be laser-focused on that happening.  We shouldn’t blame President Trump for being exactly who he always was and employing “by any means necessary” methods to win.

For me, the blame lies primarily with a Republican Party that has so demonized everyone else that any member of their party is better than any Democrat.  The Democrats put Trump in the Oval because they ignored non-city voters; the Dems’ preoccupation has been driving higher voter turnout in cities and suburbs while blowing off us rural people as hicks and bumpkins.  Your Whole Foods pumpkin was grown by a bumpkin.

Achieving the objective starts with projecting the end and reverse engineering the desired result.  President Trump shouldn’t be reelected in 2020 and I personally think he has had it with public office…so let’s do him a solid and vote him out.  But, he can’t win the general election in November of that year if he isn’t on the ballot.  As Habakkuk 2:2 says, write the vision and make it plain upon the tables…tables, tablets, iPads, Galaxy Notes, smart phones.

The goal to reach the objective is: smart southern Blacks possibly swaying Republican primaries for better Republican candidates.

Most southern Blacks are Democrats but some like blogger Keith McCants and I are what you might call “functional Democrats.”  We know that an alarmingly big percentage of Blacks aren’t registered or vote only for the big elections.  President Obama often mentioned the large number of people who voted for him and exited the polling place without voting for other contests on the ballot.  We need some real hard hitting voting and public policy education and it can’t come from candidates or political parties… it must be us talking to us about us.

The well-intended Democrat Party is a comedy of errors and would have completely collapsed if not for the star power of the Clintons and the Obamas.   Whomever the Democrats select as their/our nominee in 2020, it should be fast and Bernie-free…I personally say Hillary.  Georgia Democrats would be free to vote in the Republican primary for a reasonable GOP candidate like Ohio Governor John Kasich.  It’s called hedging your bets with nuclear chips on the table.  A Democrats winning is important but not as important as keeping an unstable person out of the position.  Oh, I have Republican friends who to this day never supported Trump and question his fitness for public service.

The ultimate objective is assisted by election goals next year.  To me, all elections (state, local and federal) are indirect referenda on Trump and Obama.  If you still think Obama is a horrible person and Trump is wonderful, you have issues and will be in my prayers.   I might not be a strong Democrat but I am surely an Obamacrat.   Obamacrats and Trump supporters logically wouldn’t support the same candidates next year.

This blog started over 10 years ago and a recurring plea has been for Blacks to diversify our political portfolio…. don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.  Moderate to conservative Black southerners should strategically deal with reasonable people in both parties to achieve the objective of “a more perfect union.”  From the center, the Far Left seems almost as odd as the Far Right.
