A good friend of mine, ColdWarrior, has been trying to get people involved in their local GOP groups, and frequently writes about the Precinct Committeeman project. Here is a version of his plans:
CW sent me a note this morning showing the connection to Vassar Bushmills’ writings about the Constitution being written for the Common Man – not for the elitists, and not for the noble or ruling class. Here is what CW says which I think sums it up beautifully:
Trump reaches down to his fellow Americans and offers a helping hand, saying, “I made it. When the American Dream still worked. I built buildings and businesses. The American Dream, though, became broken. Now I want to make it work again for you. So grab my outstretched hand.”
Cruz says, “I memorized the Constitution, got into Hahvahd, and the Bushes married Heidi and me. Plus, she got a nice gig at Goldman Sachs out of the deal, too. So grab my outstretched hand.”
Which guy’s hand do most working Americans want to grab?
Right now, at least as to those Americans who have been moved to go see a candidate speak or show up for a primary election or caucus, it’s been the Donald’s hand they’ve been wanting to grab.
It’s the builder’s hand vs. the politician’s hand.
The outsider’s hand vs. the insider’s hand.
I think that’s why Trump has more “voter” votes than Cruz.
As opposed to the “delegate” votes in some states’ Party apparatuses.
I’ve have many thoughts about what’s going on in our presidential primary process, and perhaps will write more later. But I do think ColdWarrior’s words help define some of the perceptions.
Numerous Common Man articles by Vassar Bushmills have been written. Here are just a few:
