Donald Trump's black hole

Before I begin, for those who ascribe "racism" at every turn (including Donald Trump's spokesperson), the term "black hole" refers to a region of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter can escape.  

Donald Trump is the "black hole" of conservatism.  In a couple of weeks, The Donald has summarily destroyed every vestige of conservative thought.  He and he alone now represents the alpha and omega of conservatism.

Trump's personal tendency is "win at all costs" destruction.  It is not enough that he win the nomination (seemingly); he must also destroy everything and everyone in his path.

While we applauded his (then) destruction of "the Establishment," he now has seen to it to destroy everyone and everything in the conservative movement that doesn't align perfectly with his brand of conservatism.  Sarah Palin embraced Donald Trump not for his adherence to (what she claimed were her) conservative principles, but for what Sarah perceives Trump can do for Sarah Palin.  Iowans generally, and Governor Branstad specifically, support Donald Trump not for his adherence to core conservative principles, but for his keeping the ethanol gravy train rollin'.

Trump and his supporters have abandoned any pretext that they adhere to a defined set of principles.  Rather, they adhere only to winning. (qué Charlie Sheen).   

It is not enough to win.  We are truly at the precipice of collapse.  Campaign slogans like Hope and Change and Make America Great Again, while opiates to the masses, tell us little about the ideology behind the man.

Donald Trump has flip-flopped more than a decked flounder.  That hasn't stopped his followers from ascribing their hopes and aspirations to his candidacy.  Sadly, those hopes and aspirations bear little resemblance to Donald Trump's governing style.

Barack Obama has politicized every aspect of civil society.  Donald Trump offers no indication that his presidency would be at all different.

We opposed egomaniacal narcissism in Barack Obama, but we embrace it in Donald Trump.  Is it enough that we have our own tyrant?  What does Donald Trump believe in, other than Donald Trump?
