Moreover, the old establishments are dead. Conservatives killed the GOP establishment in 1964. The Vietnam War and George McGovern killed the Democratic establishment in 1972.

What is left are elites, collectives of officeholders past and present, donors, lobbyists, think-tankers angling for jobs, party hacks and talking heads.

What the Republican collectivity has to realize is that it is they and the policies they produced that are the reason Trump, Carson and Cruz currently hold an overwhelming majority of Republican votes.

It was the elites of both parties who failed to secure our borders and brokered the trade deals that have de-industrialized America and eviscerated our middle class.

It was the elites of both parties who got us into these idiotic wars that have blown up the Middle East, cost us trillions of dollars, thousands of dead, and tens of thousands of wounded among our best and bravest.

That Republican elites would sit around a dinner table on Capitol Hill and discuss how to frustrate the rising rebellion against what they have done to America, and decide among themselves who shall lead us, is astonishing.

To borrow from the Gipper, they are not the solution to our problems. They are the problem.

Could we face something like the election of 1860, where the Democratic Party split between essentially liberal and conservative factions, paving the way for victory of Lincoln and the radical Republicans, a victory that immediately led the United States into Civil War?

If the establishment Republicans would rather destroy themselves in order to destroy what remains of traditional White America, then I’d rather my people fight and die in civil war than wither away in a wisp of dust.

History is full of fighters who lost their wars but ultimately won their countries. But history quickly forgets those who silently surrendered without a fight.
