Republicans Stunned LIke Heston In Planet of The Apes!!
Strange Bizarre and Weird (SBW-2)
Could many Republicans be looking at the future of their party in the same way Charlton Heston did in the movie "The Planet of the Apes" ??? You'll recall the scene where he looked up at that lone figure, the Statue of Liberty that he saw half buried in the sand bringing him to the shocking realization that this was his world, not some other .....and that somehow it tragically met it's demise...all he held dear....destroyed!
Perhaps Republicans can relate to that apocalyptic. scenario. With the rise and win of Trump all notions that things would continue business as usual have been brought to nought and perceived expectations came crashing down. This was to be the year when someone like a Chris Christie or a Jeb Bush were to strut their stuff and presumably get the nod. When it comes to Jeb, he was after all a Bush and surely the electorate most certainly would consider it best to let the dynasty continue. His father became President, his brother, so his turn BUT.... no. He hit the wall. The Donald Wall!
The electorate drew the line and said enough! Out with the old...in with the new! The GOP is not the same and maybe never again will be. It's ruins lay out there much like Lady Liberty fallen over in the Heston film. Donald Trump is not considered as a true Conservative and Republican party members in mass feel flabbergasted. The real question they're poised with now is can they rebuild what they considered their once grand party or surrender to their disillusionment and question why even bother?
The party is being morphed into something different, a beast of a different type and sort and one wonders if the old guard even have the capability of surviving the transformation. Their day may be done and their names may serve only now as memorials on headstones in the political graveyards speaking of the past. Rest In Peace?? Or will they have to settle with unrest of a perpetually kind!
