Since the last GOP debate in South Carolina, the tenor of the campaign has become rather childish. At the center of all this is the worlds richest teenager, Donald Trump. Yes, Marco Rubio also called Ted Cruz a liar, but what Cruz has said about Rubio and the “Gang of Eight” bill is true. I do not have to look this up, I remember it quite vividly, it was only a couple of years ago. So, the fact of the matter is, Rubio is a liar. He has lied about his record on immigration, and he has demonstrably lied about Ted Cruz’s record on immigration. Marco Rubio was one of the “Gang of Eight.” That was an amnesty bill, and everyone knows it. Ted Cruz was instrumental in killing that bill, and everyone knows that too.
Marco Rubio currently has a commercial about how he outsmarted the Democrats on Obamacare. Really? So Obamacare is gone now? No, but it has been weakened, yes? No. Nothing has happened to Obamacare, so what is Rubio talking about? On the other hand, Ted Cruz actually stood up and tried to stop the funding of Obamacare at great risk to himself. Few Senators stood with him on this, and the fact is, Marco Rubio was not one of them. Ted Cruz created an opportunity for the Senate to de-fund Obamacare rendering it useless, but Senate Republicans, including Marco Rubio, refused to act, and Obamacare was funded. Now, it is running a muck through our economy and tearing family budgets apart.
Marco Rubio should be ashamed of himself, and so should his supporters like Tim Scott, Rick Santorum, Trey Gowdy and even Nikki Haley. Stand down, Senator Rubio, you are not ready for the Oval Office, not by a long shot.
Now, as for Mr. Trump, I believe this phenomena can be explained a couple of different ways. In either case, what it amounts to is simply this: Trump is not who anyone thinks he is. Trump is simply a conduit for the people’s anger. That is all this phenomena is. It is nothing more. That is why he can call Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush liars when everyone, even most of his supporters, know it is not true. Not one single person has come forward to complain that they changed their vote from Carson to Cruz. Not one. Trump is lying about this. The person Trump supporters want for President is running, but it is not Donald Trump. Unfortunately, these folks are not thinking, they are doing the same thing most Democrats do: They are letting their emotions make the decision for them. Needless to say, this does not bode well for the future of the nation.
There really is only one candidate who has the right temperament, knowledge, experience and philosophy to be our next President. If we really want “A New American Century,” if we really want to “Make America Great Again,” we need to go with what made America great to begin with: The United States Constitution.
All the rhetoric and propaganda in the world changes nothing in the face of reality, and reality is not good right now. Our economy is a shambles. Our military is being emasculated. We are showing fear and weakness to our enemies, and to our friends! A political ideology that is incompatible with our values, not to mention civilization itself, is in ascendance all over the world. All of this is being supported in one way or another by our own government. In fact, at this point it is safe to say that our own federal government has become the domestic enemy our forefathers warned us about.
Right now, we are in the midst of the most consequential election campaign perhaps in the history of the nation. The question in this election is not the one most people seem to be asking. This is not about socialism, or conservatism, or Republicans and Democrats. It is about something much more fundamental than any of those things. This election is about freedom. Not whether or not we will have freedom, but whether or not we can secure it at the ballot box, and not have to take more extreme measures. For those who scoff at this statement, let me be clear: Those of us Americans who are American will be free. There is no way to stop it.
The Democrats have put up two candidates, but neither of them has any hope of becoming the next President. More and more people are realizing every day that what has happened to this country during the Obama administration was done deliberately. The answer is simple. It is what I said before: The United States Constitution. We need a President who not only knows the constitution backward and forward, but also believes in it, and will definitely fight to apply it to the federal government the way it is supposed to be applied.
When Donald Trump and Marco Rubio talk about what they will do for the country they point to themselves, while Ted Cruz points to the constitution. If we want our nation righted again, if we want our liberty, our security and our sovereignty faithfully defended, we can not take our eye off of that target. None of these men or women running for President is the answer to our problems. The constitution is. We have to go with the one candidate who has always understood that: Ted Cruz for President. There is just too much at stake to settle for anyone else. #TedCruz2016
