To the Editor:

The Republican elites are again speaking with a forked tongue. They say they want to protect the country from Donald Trump. What they actually want to protect is their ability to receive a big slice of federal pork (your tax money).

They know if Hillary Clinton wins, the Democrat establishment will control the Executive Branch of government and all the contracts it has to hand out each year.

The Republican elites fear that if Trump wins, the Republican Party will not control the Executive Branch. Donald Trump will control the Executive Branch and he is not going to hand out contracts to the Friends of Republican Elites (FOREs).

So every time you see one of those “Republican” sponsored ads which ‘tear down’ Donald Trump, you are looking at dollars which are being invested with the long term strategy of moving federal dollars (contracts) into the pocket of the advertisement’s true sponsor.

This is true whether you hate Donald Trump and would never vote for him in a primary or if you love Donald Trump and desperately want him to win the White House. Presidential politics is about directing the flow of federal dollars.
