WHOA! Donald Trump Goes Full-Court RINO; Does His Best George W. Bush

“Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” ~ James Madison. 

Conservative Republican voters were duped by George W. Bush when he masqueraded as the next Ronald Reagan, but then couched his phony conservatism with the self-described label “compassionate conservative.”

It was a term that helped Bush win the White House, probably focus-tested up the wazoo by the likes of RINO extraordinaire Karl Rove, because, after all, who’s not compassionate, right? And who wants to be painted as “mean-spirited” by Democrats, one of the favorite terms to smear Republicans during the Bill Clinton years of henchmen James Carville, Paul Begala, George Stephanopoulos and Rahm Emanuel.

The “compassionate” before “conservative” should have been a big loud warning to conservatives who know that conservatism is already compassionate. What’s not conservative is trapping people in the chains of government dependency and slavery to government.

It didn’t take long to figure out what “compassionate” conservatism was, as George W. Bush became the most prolific deficit spender in the nation’s history, only to be surpassed by progressively Marxist Barack Obama.

We learned that “compassionate conservativism” in Bush’s mind, equated to big government and massive government spending, forcibly taking the money from one American citizen who worked for their money and redistributing it to someone who didn’t.

In other words, “compassionate conservatism,” is nothing more than liberalism.

And now, bloviating billionaire Donald Trump, a lifelong New York liberal, has shown that he is every bit as big of a RINO as Bush, adopting nearly the exact same language as Bush.

But instead of “compassionate conservative,” Trump, sounding more like 74-year-old, wild-eyed socialist Bernie Sanders than a conservative Republican, tells talk-show host Michael Savage, a loyal Trump supporter, that government must have a “tremendous compassion, tremendous heart.”

As WND reported:

On “The Savage Nation” Monday, he welcomed a regular guest, real-estate billionaire Donald Trump, and asked the Republican presidential primary front-runner to confirm if he believed the “essence of the popularity” of his campaign is “that you have applied in your own business dealings what you’d like to apply running America.”

“Isn’t that fundamentally what you’re saying?” Savage asked.

“It is, Michael. But we also have to have big heart,” Trump replied.

“It is somewhat different than business, because you really need a lot of things,” Trump said of the presidency.

You need tremendous compassion, tremendous heart,” Trump continued.

Founding Father James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution” and the main author of the U.S. Constitution, had a different take on so-called “government charity.” Madison knew that politicians and charity should never be mixed, realizing that when it is mixed, corruption ensues and votes are bought.

“Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” ~ James Madison. 

No, Donald, you don’t need “tremendous compassion” or a “tremendous heart” to be an American statesman. You need to be principally hinged to the U.S. Constitution. You’re sounding like Nancy Pelosi , Harry Reid , Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer again. Maybe that’s why you gave them so much money over the years.

We don’t need another politician who is generous with other people’s money. We already have plenty of those. You now are officially “RINO Donald Trump,” but we should have known that all along.
