Opinion | Trump and Rand Paul Vs. The Establishment
In 2016, celebrity and capitalist Donald Trump galvanized the Republican Party in a way that few have since Ronald Reagan. He promised to make America great again: protect the borders, strengthen the military, rebuild the economy, and unite a divided people. Most of all, however, one of his key attractions to the average American was his rallying call to “Drain the Swamp” and strip the corrupt political establishment of their power. Clinton and Obama’s administrations— and the likes of Elizabeth Warren, Maxine Waters, Bernie Sanders, and Nancy Pelosi— were hated for their social justice pot-stirring as they pandered to the whims of ethnic and religious minorities, keeping the victim mentality alive and the Democrats’ intellectual plantation strong while only furthering a foolish socialist agenda. The Bushes, supported by figures such as Romney, Paul Ryan, and John McCain, were hated for their neoconservative warmongering— neoconservative meaning resorting to authoritarianism and militarism in the interest of security while generally failing to uphold any meaningfully conservative causes beyond that. Certainly, neoconservatism and social justice are not inherently evil ideologies, but each was twisted by the establishment into a way to manipulate voters, waste tax money, and profit the dirty careerists infesting the District of Columbia. Meanwhile, Dr. Rand Paul had been sitting on the US Senate since 2011 as a strong voice of conservative, libertarian, and constitutional principles during the Obama administration, arguably as one of very few US senators (Republican or otherwise) to do so.
Since the beginning of the Trump administration, the stark difference between the establishment— the careerists, RINOs, and authoritarians— and the MAGA movement— the patriots, constitutionalists, and populists— has been laid bare in a near-unprecedented manner. On one side of the ideological fence, we have seen “Trumpism” lead to an explosion of the stock market, a much-needed military pay raise, two staunch originalists nominated to the Supreme Court, and a Cabinet of astonishing suitability to their duties. Other nations— our allies who would often take advantage of us like the sucker friend who could be guilted into paying for everything— have suddenly become willing to negotiate with us for our benefit as well as their own. Meanwhile, rivals such as Russia and North Korea have cooperated with American diplomats in a way that has not been seen since the end of the Cold War. On the other hand, DC swamp creatures embarrass us abroad while prodding their media mouthpieces to vilify our country and its leaders at every chance. Even longstanding Republicans have crossed the aisle to preserve Obama-era policy failures while turning against the likes of Trump and Paul every chance they can, from downplaying the President’s efforts to flagrantly refusing to cooperate with Sen. Paul on bills essential to the GOP platform such as the Obamacare repeal and replacement.
As can be seen beneath the surface of the media’s deception, we the people know now who is on our side in Washington and who is serving their own avarice. Democrats have begun to “walk away” as they realize they have been left behind in favor of Marxism and intersectionality, while the GOP is forcing out RINOs and other such establishment puppets through primaries to replace them with Trump picks. Even Paul Ryan has decided not to seek reelection. The momentum of this transformation will be greatly impacted by the results of the 2018 midterm elections, but it stands to reason we could see a total shift of power in Washington as the GOP is transformed from within while growing their influence. With Trump at the head of the executive branch, Rand Paul taking the lead in Congress (if only Mitch McConnell would take a hint), and Trump picks dominating the court system, the MAGA movement could stand to leave an impact on the nation’s history beyond what we can even imagine.
