Does NH represent all of America?

Sanders: 151,584

Hillary: 95,252

Trump: 100,406

Total: 347,242

GOP Non-Trump Vote total: 178,857

If America is in any way like NH, then she is in big trouble, morally.

John Yoo, law professor at UC Berkeley, has penned an important piece about Trump and Sanders being the Founders’ worst nightmare.

He writes about Trump:

The men who met in Philadelphia in 1787 to write a new constitution designed it to prevent someone like Donald Trump from ever becoming president. One of their great fears was of a populist demagogue who would promise the people everything and respect nothing. As Alexander Hamilton, the key theorist of executive power during the Founding, warned in Federalist 67: “Talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity, may alone suffice to elevate a man to the first honours of a single state.

And of Sanders he says:

The Framers would also be aghast at Bernie Sanders. His calls for a political revolution, fomenting of class hatreds, and desires for a socialist economy also run directly contrary to the Framers design. The Framers believed our Constitution and our government should not view or think of people as economic classes or special interests.

I would like to take the NH outcome in a slightly different direction: a moral one, which still relates to the Founders’ vision.

If NH represents all of America, then she is in big trouble.

The state just voted for a big government socialist who robs the future generation of debt-free living. Stealing their future is immoral. The moral choice — that is, the biblical one — is limited government and low taxes.

Hillary is thoroughly corrupt and compromised, politically.

My focus is on the Republican side, however.

The state also just voted for a foul-mouthed, uncouth, rude and erratic showman who never met a liberal position he didn’t like. He’s a political professional wrestler, complete with the love of the spotlight and the hot chicks in the ring. It’s still my belief that his destiny is not to occupy the White House but to sow dissension and confusion in America, particularly on the conservative side.

I still say Trump will fade, while Rubio will rise, because the majority of voters now realize Trump could win the nomination and, aghast, will turn against him. America will correct NH’s course. So maybe America is not like NH, after all. But we shall see.
