1. They aren’t “evildoers.”
They are enemies and need to be killed.
No one ever has talked a religious zealot out of his zeal. You ignore them if you can: the guy on the street corner. You kill them if you can’t: the guy hacking heads because he hates the 20th Century.
And, no, it’s not a bad thing to kill enemies. Not killing them is a bad thing and childish; you have decided to put your family, your community, your nation at risk because you refuse to understand that some people just need killing.
You put your ego over human lives.
A bullet in 1933 would have prevented a war costing 50M lives. President Clinton putting a bullet in OBL’s head in 1998 would have prevented 9/11.
2. No nation in history ever won a war by spying on its own citizens.
A nation exceeding in power all others combined may be thought to be able to defeat its enemies without warfare, but by tracing & tracking one enemy at a time through spying on the Americans they contact. But this thought is wrong; we’ve held this adolescent pretense for over a decade – three TIMES longer than it took to defeat modern armies 70 years ago. A nation spying on itself merely uses the “enemy” to control their “subjects;” no free citizenry would allow this.
3. Letting in millions of illegals is not “an act of love.”
It is an act of hatred toward your fellow Americans, and toward the Rule of Law.
For a Republican – ostensibly the party that appreciates Law – this is childishly absurd.
Letting in illegals – 1, 1,000, 20,000,000 – just takes that many jobs from Americans – depriving them of any feeling of self-worth. It reduces the freedom of all other Americans by taxing them to replace through welfare the income lost to illegals by every American. It tells the rest of the world that you care more about others than you do about your own country & its future.
There’s a word for that & it isn’t “Love;” it’s “Enemy.”
Ignoring immigration laws also proves that you believe the rule of law to be situational: if you disagree with laws promulgated in a republic, then you can override them just because you want to. There are words for this: “Totalitarian,” and its first cousin: “Progressive.”
What OTHER laws are situational? Any? All? Who gets to decide?
Given that America was founded on the Rule of Law, there’s another word for this: “anti-American.”
In no way do the above beliefs qualify one to lead a modern, civilized nation under a Constitutional government. In fact, they disqualify that individual.
4. Addressing our future requires educating the next generation.
Education requires work, intelligence and objective curriculum. Common Core fits none of these requirements. It is a slothful and lazy approach that propagandizes rather than educates. Our teacher cohort is demonstrably our dumbest college students. Any curriculum that does not extol free market capitalism and the rule of law is both anti-American and anti any objective improvement in living standards, which historically is the only purpose of and reason for education to begin with.
In short, Bush, Rubio, Walker, Christie, Graham, Perry, Kasich, Carson and Fiorina all fail foundational requirements to lead into a prosperous future a free nation under the Rule of Law.
Cruz does not fail. Paul does not. Trump does not.
All Democrats fail any objective criteria to lead free men & women.
Deluding yourself as to “winnability” is ridiculous. Republicans have voted “winnability” and seen everything we were told we had voted for rejected and destroyed.
The establishment GOP is every bit as much liberty’s enemy as are Democrats: 100%.
Is Cruz perfect? No. Is Trump perfect? No. Is Paul perfect? No.
But unlike all of the other candidates, Democrat AND Republican… they are not America’s enemies.
2016 provides a choice between failed policies and a future under Law. But it is not a choice between the established political parties.
The Democrat and Establishment GOP are one choice and the same.
The Rule of Law is the other.
