Donald Trump, fresh off a pity party after having to cancel his much hyped presidential debate due to lack of participation, has decided to give the Republican Party the heave-ho. He’s now contemplating other options, such as running as an Independent candidate for President.
Trump cited his disgust with partisan politics as he changed his party affiliation from Republican to Unaffiliated today.
Party changing is not novel to the egocentric billionaire. He was previously a Republican in the late 1980’s. In 2001, he switched to the Democrat Party and boomeranged back to the GOP in 2009.
Now, he’s flirting with Americans Elect 2012, an online, independent presidential nominating organization.
We’ve been down this path before. Ross Perot, another billionaire, momentarily energized discontented Republicans by running as a Reform Party candidate. Each and every vote cast for him helped pave Bill Clinton’s path to the White House.
Donald Trump and the equally flaky Ron Paul will let their egos guarantee America another term for the Obama Socialist agenda to deeply entrench. We will not recover.
