To my fellow Cruz supporters: Last night proved Low Information Voters exist in both Parties. I was in a meeting when my wife texted, “Cruz is out.” I felt sucker punched…physically ill…fighting mad, but too exhausted to throw a punch…so yes, I share your pain. However, I refuse to write in a third party candidate that can’t possibly win; nor will I stay home and sulk on Election Day.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not jumping on the Trump Train with enthusiasm and chest bumps. Any of the Republican potentials would’ve been better than Trump…well, except for Kasich. So, with my nose held tightly between thumb and index finger, I will cast a vote for Donald Trump in November. Am I happy about it? No! Do I think he’s a true Conservative? Absolutely not! He’s a Rhino at best and at worst, a Democrat Light. However, there might be a smidgen of integrity left in Trump, whereas Hillary Clinton has obviously made some type of nefarious deal with the devil, or she’s competing with Lucifer for the title of the universe’s biggest liar.
Why do I believe Trump MIGHT be a bit better than Hillary? Four reasons. First, she boasts proudly of her support for abortion at any stage in pregnancy. Though Trump’s past suggests otherwise, he says he’s pro-life. Second, Hillary pledges to carry on the legacy of Obama, administering a third Obama term. Trump says Obama’s been a disaster. Does Donald actually mean this? I’m not sure. But we know for certain the anti-American intent of Hillary Clinton. Third, Hillary pledges to enact stricter gun control laws. Daughter Chelsea says Mama Clinton would like nothing more than to repeal the 2nd Amendment. Trump insists he’s a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and the NRA. According to a Breitbart article from last year,
“GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump is a lifetime member of the NRA and a concealed carry permit holder who believes the advantages an armed citizenry provides to America are so evident as to be beyond “debate.””
And lastly, there’s the issue of the Supreme Court. In fact, that may now be the most pressing reason to vote for a “Republican.” Whether or not Trump intends to nominate a Conservative in the vein of the late Justice Scalia is yet to be seen. However, we know Hillary Clinton’s nominee/nominees will be Left of Elizabeth Warren. If Conservatives lose the Supreme Court, America’s done…this isn’t hyperbole. We’re finished. To reverse course and restore American exceptionalism would take decades…if ever accomplished at all. If we elect another candidate hell-bent on cramming socialism down America’s throat, we might as well rename ourselves Northern Venezuela.
Might Trump be a nightmare? Absolutely! But a nightmare greater than the Clinton’s occupying the White House? Hardly.
Some will now attack me and claim I’ve never been a true Conservative. That’s hogwash. Some will say I’m abandoning my principles. And once again, that’s not true. Understand I’ve been blessed with a wife and six precious children. I’m thinking about their long term future…futures impacted by lifetime appointments and judicial activism. I’m not focusing on my present frustration with the current state of events.
Just sharing my heart.
