Give me a break. Conservatives have elected a Republican Senate and a Republican House since 2010 and what have we received in response? Disdain and sneering "dirty tricks", that's what. And I don't know about you but, using the words of fictional broadcaster Howard Beale, "I am mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore." I've held my nose while voting for a RINO for the last time and while conservatism is very important, even more so is the forcefulness to "bulldoze" over the McConnells and Boehner/Ryans of the political scene to "git 'er done". That's why I like Donald Trump and would like him to be President with Ted Cruz as a very active vice president.
Love him or hate him, Donald Trump is a doer and a shaker and while he might apply a little bit of braggadocio he proves that he WILL "git 'her done". He has the business and budget acumen that our nation sorely needs and he is a master negotiator. Why does he take the extreme position from the outset and then dials it back when he must? Ask for everything when the negotiations start. Then when it's over you will be successful, unlike the Republicans of today who give the kitchen sink away from the get-go. And if you don't think Trump is a doctrinaire Conservative , well, you're right. But he's a realist and truly loves this country and wants to bring her back to greatness where all Americans can be winners once again. And that's what I want first and foremost.
So where does this put Ted Cruz in my scheme of things? Well, Ted is brilliant with a fantastic legal background and the oratory skills to match, and if he becomes Vice President (and I believer that's what Trump wants as well), Trump will use him actively. Trump has reputation for taking only the best people and giving them all the responsibility they can handle. He possesses the art of effective delegation.
Let a President Trump put his active VP in charge of cleaning up all of the illegal actions by the current Administration. What a reputation that would build for this one term young Senator and it would be a great win-win for each of them and the country. Just think what that would do for this leader to go on to succeed Trump in the White House after The Donald has taken a wrecking ball to the entrenched bureaucrats and corrupt Establishment politicians.
Trump can shake it up and turn things around with his skill at taking on all comers and putting them to shame and the media loses out every time they go after him. He's going to get the media attention and when he accomplishes what he plans he can be as braggadocious as he wants. And the Establishment will just, in their cowardly way, have to disappear into the woodwork like the cockroaches that they are. But with Ted coming in later as his replacement, they will be doomed to stay there.
Look, I know some say that he used to be a Democrat but don't forget, before becoming Governor of California and President, the great Ronald Reagan was a liberal Democrat and a Hollywood union leader to boot. And Donald Trump will be beholden to no special interest or other campaign contributor because he paid his own way. And absolutely no one else in consideration for the highest office in the land can match that.
So to my good conservative friends and I mean that sincerely, I love Ted Cruz and think he is a good man with a great future, but let's let a heavyweight take the initial steps, get things on track to a balanced budget and a resurgence of America's reputation and power, and then let Ted follow up to keep things on track. Business and legal savvy, wisdom with age and youthful vitality are here in a great combination. Let's use it to America's advantage and bring her back to greatness.
God bless you all and Happy New Year.
