I want to beat Hillary Clinton next year. I want to beat her with a Republican who is not just another party apparatchik surrounded by lower level party apparatchiks within the Republican Party.
But I know we cannot beat Hillary Clinton with this level of anger. We wont be able to draw people to our side and our cause like this.
I get the anger. I do. I am angry at the betrayal and the repeated lies from Washington Republicans who say they love children, but wont even defund Planned Parenthood.
I get the anger of voters who sent men and women to Washington to fight Obama only to give him a blank check and keep Obamacare funded.
But I dont get this anger. If this is the anger that flows out of Trump supporters, I do not think it is sustainable. Yet it comes daily. It is poisonous to debate, to democracy, and to the soul itself.
Yes, Republican voters have been betrayed. But I do not think people who are angered at the present President demeaning the integrity of the Presidency will ultimately side with any candidate whose base of support generates rage and hate. I refuse to believe that the people angry at Washington and the GOP have let their anger consume them. But the people in these emails and so many like them have been consumed by anger.
Those of you who see it within the ranks of the candidate you support, and not just with Trump supporters, need to try to channel the anger and draw out the happy warriors.
Conservatives must be happy warriors. Those of faith already know theyre on the winning team and the issues are far larger than the day to day politics of this country.

my thoughts exactly
Ok who is?
I notice you have no better alternative who can actually draw from all sides and win the election
Or maybe you do.
I am interested to hear your theory about who other than Trump can actually win and why
Just how much was Erickson paid by the GOPe to p-— on Trump?
Okay, he’s not on the radio where I live.
He sure is a nitwit.
Bite me racist.
I want to vote for a conservative, not a clown or a liberal
“Conservatives must be happy warriors.” Good. Keep thinking that idea.
SELF AGGRANDIZER FAGIN
He was rimming Ailes too
And NRO and that metero Rich Lowery
I am a happy warrior when the blade of my knife is dripping red.
I want all the GOP leadership kicked out on the streets and want to see their children begging for bread. Calling them cowards is an insult to cowards. They are sickeningly evil: craven, calculating, avaricious beasts who care nothing that children are butchered and sold for parts in this once-great country.
I support Ted Cruz.
You need to be one first, Erick.
EE has a smiley face tattooed on his ass. Right next to his ‘Property of GOPe’ tattoo, and the bootmark left by pissed off conservatives.
Well that is a nickname that has been used by at least two politicians that I can think of- Hubert Humphrey and Al Smith, both being liberal/progressive Democratic candidates for President.
We probably shouldn't be surprised to find Erick Erickson attracted to that name...
