Now as many of you know, I am a Trump supporter but I certainly wish that The Donald had avoided making some of his comments in recent weeks, but I also know he's a New Yorker with a penchant for a biting tongue. And I think he's paying a price right now for some of those unfortunate comments, but that doesn't mean that the opposition is handling things much better.
Ted Cruz has done a good job of putting on smooth appearances, but he is not exempt from guilt in these matters either. He's just been sneakier about it, hiding it well while he uses his minions to dish it out. And I don't think there's any doubt that he is willing to pull out all stops in his efforts to advance himself. All political candidates at this level of action have unquenchable egos or they wouldn't be doing what they do. Don't kid yourself; look below the surface and you see the true colors flashing through.
But look, of the two options I will certainly vote for either when all is said and done. But what disturbs me the most is the level of fury and in some cases hate that supporters of both men display toward one another. I'll admit I've made a few mistakes in this capacity as well, most of us passionate about politics do, but I'm trying to lower the rhetoric and heat so that we can work hard for the candidate we favor without completely destroying the capacity to work with others in the future. Our continued acting in the way that is transpiring is both detrimental to our favorite candidate as well as the potential to make a difference in Washington as a result of this election.
Make no mistake, the Republican Establishment loves what is going on and eggs it on, figuring they can use it in the end to pick their own choice for the nomination in a brokered convention at the final wire. Believe me, if dirty tricks come forward and if someone other than one these two is nominated, say a Paul Ryan, I think the smoke won't clear the Republican Party for a long time. It's going to be hard enough to get the two camps to come together due to the level of animosity present, but to go with someone else, someone who has no support from the base of the party will in this humble writer's opinion end the party.
And what does that mean for America? It means that an openly and unabashed socialist will be elected President of the United States and the concept of freedom and capitalism will die forever. After eight years of Obama's policies, even one term with a Hillary or Bernie at the helm will take us over the cliff with no way back.
So with the thought of such a horrific possible outcome, let's lower the rhetoric between Trump and Cruz, fight hard but fight clean without further unneeded comments and realize that when the fray is over people looking for a new direction to Washington must come together.
I prefer Trump because I think he wants to see America return as the shining leader of the world, not just a weak nation under the thumb of the New World Order which truly doesn't like America but merely wants her resources. Others prefer Cruz, a younger man with a brilliant legal mind. I just hope the Establishment isn't using him to throw the election to the convention where the party leaders can't be trusted to support the winner between these two. John Kasich isn't still in the mix and Marco Rubio holding his delegates because they have any allegiance to the will of the people. Let's just realize that either Trump or Cruz is preferable to any other alternative. Make no mistake, division is what the "big Washington party boys" want to continue to their advantage. Let's disappoint them when the time comes and replace them as well.
God bless you all and God bless America. May she ever be free and prosperous.
