Now I have been a Republican since I was first eligible to vote many moons ago and in all that time I have only voted for three Democrats and they were running in local elections. But currently while I maintain registration as a Republican in actuality I prefer to call myself a Constitutional Conservative, because time and time again I have been woefully disappointed by the Party. I think the final icing on the cake came about a year ago when the Establishment undercut young Chris McDaniel in Mississippi with their lies and deceit which they knew full well were despicable yet they carried out the action anyway. A promising young State Senator who would have made a great United States Senator was destroyed by the RINO Establishment in favor a Thad Cochran, an old man who was guaranteed to do just what Washington wanted regardless of the desires of the people who was supposed to represent.
And then this past November when Mitch McConnell said if we would give him the Senate thereby allowing him to assume the Majority Leader position, the Republican Senate would work tirelessly to do those things which he had promised. But that didn't last long, he sold us out the day after the election when he publicly admitted that the Republicans would fold like a bad hand of cards. It brought back memories of a similar situation back in 2010 when John Boehner promised similar things and has now spent five years bowing and kowtowing to President Obama. Both of these men and the Washington Establishment which they are entrenched in are despicable and should be removed from their positions post haste.
But it gets worse, and now the leadership team, weak and meandering, doesn't even hide their disdain for us, stating that this year in the Presidential cycle they will destroy the conservative wing of the party and they are pulling out all stops with the likes of milquetoast Jeb and a huge bankroll to do just that. But the only problem is that they are so out of touch with those who put them in power, the base, that they didn't even see the disdain and animosity which real Republicans feel for them. It's real and it's deep and it's not going away.
And like a character out of a fairy tale, behold Donald Trump has shown up on the scene, has connected with the base and has taken all of the oxygen out of the room for the other candidates. Jeb looks weak and pathetic in his presentations, Marco Rubio has shown himself for what he is and even Scott Walker, who I have had a favorable disposition towards, has gone wishy washy since he must get funding support from Establishment donors.
And so with the exception of the self-funding Donald Trump, only Ted Cruz is standing tall and attracting small dollar donations at a record level to give him viability. Some of the others who can also be considered quality candidates from the outsider group are having less success at gaining the funding support needed for a grueling campaign.
The Establishment has thrown, and will continue to throw everything it has at both Trump and Cruz, yet the base fully understands now what the Establishment is and wants and that it's not in the interest of the America voter, it's all for their riches and power. The Roves and the RNC are fooling no one any longer and they are clearly in a panic.
So when Ted Cruz stands up and shuts down liberal propaganda plants at the Iowa State Fair and Donald Trump approaches Mobile in his 757, circling to dip his wings in salute to the huge crowd awaiting, you had believe the times, they just might be 'a changin' sooner than we could have ever hoped and dreamed for. I, for one, am ecstatic and hope that somehow, someway Mr. Trump and Senator Cruz can pull forces together for a November 2016 election blowout. It's time to take over the Republican Party lock, stock and barrel for the people who are supposed to be the reason: the American voter. Let's make The Donald's slogan, "Make America Great Again" a reality next year.
