For eight years the Right has complained, and rightly so, that our ever-enlarging GOP majority-government has not listened to the voice of We the People.
With his Carly action Cruz evidences the same rejection of that voice. He cannot accept that we have spoken and chosen another. Given that he is not listening as he auditions for the job, it is difficult to conclude he will listen should he get the job.
Would he listen to us as president any more than he is listening to us now? Any more than do the GOPe and Obama?
Cruz has been my 2nd choice for some time. He was an outsider who took on the bipartisan Senate Progressive cartel, and good for him. The GOP establishment loathes Cruz: If it gets a second ballot Cruz’ll be the first one gone. If the convention gets to a second ballot, Kasich will be our nominee.
The goal of the RNC is to continue the Progressive cartel. OUR job is to destroy it.
If the GOPe cared about the rule of law or liberty, about debt or the Constitution, they’d have used the majority we increasingly have given them over the past six years to stop Progressivism; instead, they have enlarged it.
The goal of We the People must be twofold: Beat Hillary and beat GOPe, as they are the same.
Kasich, the last man standing from the Progressive cartel, has the same border policies as Clinton, the same neocon philosophy as Clinton, the same Obamacare philosophy as Clinton, etc. If he were our nominee and defeated her, there’d be absolutely no difference.
It would be a rerun of the 2014 midterm, in which we gave the GOP a historic majority – and the next week they passed all of Obama’s funding requests for the spending they said they’d stop in 2010, the Obamacare they said they’d end in 2012, and the unlawful and unconstitutional illegal alien actions they said they’d stop in 2014.
You may not like Trump. But he has garnered more votes, enlarged the party more than anyone since Reagan. He has won evangelical voters, secular voters, women, men, blue collar, white collar… there are no groups he has not won. And it looks like he is bringing huge numbers of minorities into the party, as well, having won 47% of Hispanics in NV, and with large numbers of African Americans taking a look at him. Democrats have not won a national election since 1960 without at least 85% of the Black vote; if Trump peels off 20% – Clinton cannot win.
The idea he cannot beat Hillary is wrong – unless the GOP stays home and gives it away. Trump hasn’t even begun campaigning against her and they’re already tied at 38%. With a large portion of the GOP still actively working to defeat the guy for whom more GOP voters have voted than ever before – he is already tied with our enemy.
Hillary is busily beating herself – women hate her, millennials don’t like her much, men hate her. She’s a horrible candidate with zero success in her background. Camille Paglia, arguably the most honest intellectual on the Left today hates her .
It is time to unite behind the candidate chosen by our voters, to stop spending money, time, energy and electrons arming our enemy.
It is time to put the actual goal – saving our nation from Progressivism – ahead of internecine warfare and unite behind the person chosen by our voters.
He may not be perfect. You may think he should be closer to exactly what you want.
You may even have to sacrifice a principle because Hillary winning means losing it all. Hillary will destroy America as we know it with at least three SCOTUS picks.
We have complained since 2009 that Obama & Congress have rejected the will of the people on healthcare, on ISIS, on trade, on taxes… are we now saying we must continue to reject the will of the people in our own nominating campaign?
Cruz has not been chosen by our party’s voters. It is time to accept the verdict of our voters, to unite around and behind that verdict, and move forward.
You can either work to defeat her and help keep America a great country, or you can stand aside as she destroys it and pat yourself on the back saying, “I stood on my principles, and didn’t do whatever I could to stop her.”
