2. In 1952, Ike was drafted by an INDEPENDENT movement to run for president as a Republican. They overran the Convention and made him prevail over Bob Taft. Perhaps we need that sort of thing in 2016...a coalition of libertarians, tea party, and independents who find an honest, patriotic, magnetic leader who believes in first principles, and drive him to the Republican nomination past all the establishment contenders (who end up just getting mauled to death by the liberals and their media acolytes).
Interesting note: In 1952, Hollywood supported Ike, and Ronald Reagan was a democrat. Imagine that.
