Carrie Underwood won a singing show, became the darling of country music and miffed the seasoned veterans who had put in their time in the biz. Trump is being Carrie Underwooded by the political elite. He came into a new arena without putting his time into the system and jumped ahead to the ultimate prize of presidential candidate. This wasn’t supposed to happen to an outsider.
The voters chose Trump by the millions precisely because he was not the system. He’s a self-made businessman who sees the danger that progressives such as Obama and Hillary have wrought on the United States. Why on earth are our kids being taught to hate the United States? Why on earth are blacks torching cities hating on police? Why on earth are men now welcome in girls’ bathrooms? Why on earth are Muslims and their Sharia laws besting our Constitution? Why on earth are all the government agencies under Obama performing disgracefully and illegally – the VA, EPA, IRS, HUD, Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Defense, Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection? Perhaps the citizens have finally had enough corruption, cronyism and progressivism and have hope that a successful businessman can clean it up. In other words, we want Trump to lead America in making it great again.
The media and political elites can throw the most inane intimations at Trump waiting for something to cause the Trump meltdown. Newsflash – the meltdown isn’t going to happen. The millions of citizens that voted for Trump are waiting to cast their votes again in November. And it can’t get here soon enough. We are tired of the progressive foolishness that is tearing our country apart. We have tired of waiting for our established politicians to turn this around. No matter how much Trump is Carrie Underwooded, we stand behind him.
Liberals claim to love the Muslims and the gays. Liberal leaders are at a crossroads because their leadership has resulted in the largest mass murder targeting gays on American soil at the hands of a Muslim. Muslims are taught to hate gays and kill them. Muslims who kill gays are not radical; they are devout. Obama and Hillary have said they will continue the immigration of Muslims from terrorist countries by the tens of thousands despite the odds that terrorist attacks will increase.
Liberal supporters find themselves at a crossroads: are the socially agreeable policies worth the threat of more Muslim attacks? I don’t know why liberal leaders are so intent on bringing more Muslims to the United States. It could be that Barrack Hussein Obama who grew up in Muslim schools is sympathetic to Muslims. Is his fundamental transformation to revert the United States from a Christian nation to Islamic? Has Hillary sold her soul to the Muslims just to increase her bank account? Nothing explains the danger that their leadership has wrought.
Gays have the option of joining conservative republicans. According to the meme of liberal leadership, we are supposed to be the bigoted, racist, homophobes. The truth is we knew you in high school before you came out of the closet. We admire your creativity and carefree ways. We also never think of your sexuality anymore that you think of ours. The mass murder of your fellow gays hurts us because we are all human. Many republicans are the most accepting and welcoming of all. As conservative republicans, we want security and economic stability so that all can prosper. We are sorry that you are an enemy of the Muslims but we do have that in common – we are all infidels to them.
Trump supporters will not be swayed by anything Hillary or any democrat will throw at Trump. They are loyal and nothing will keep them from voting for their candidate. Nothing. The negative advertising will be in the hundreds of millions of dollars and not one dollar will convince a Trump supporter to vote democrat. The negative advertising will convert democrat voters to wonder why they shouldn’t vote for Trump and then they will. Hillary and the democrats will find out that Trump earned the top republican slot.
From the beginning of Trump’s candidacy, he talked about the illegals. Then an illegal killed an innocent American on a San Francisco pier. Trump talked about the Muslims and how we don’t know enough about them. Then Muslims committed murders against their co-workers in California. Trump said that we should stop letting Muslim refugees in because they could be terrorists. Then Muslim refugees slaughtered Parisians at a concert. Trump was always one step ahead of events, by chance, but they were big events, even huge as Trump says.
Hillary’s baggage should have kept her holed up at her home but since she has the gall to run for president, Trump will open up her baggage for all to see. Despite my ideal candidate being Cruz, perhaps Trump is the person for our times. In this day and age, the tweet gets the worm. The democrats have become so nasty that it takes a tough candidate like Trump to maneuver through the bullsh%$. Go get ’em, Trump, and may the best man win.
Ted Cruz failed to win the republican primary for 2016. Hoping things will go his way 2020. Hillary or whatever democrat candidate must fail this year so if it is the Donald, so be it. We know what we will get with a Hillary or democrat president – more of the Obama agenda and horrific Supreme Court Justices. In retrospect, some reasons Cruz didn’t cinch the nomination:
- Tea Party favorite Rubio went all in for amnesty siding with establishment republicans – he helped taint conservative politicians across the board.
- Republican politicians failed to defund Planned Parenthood despite getting caught manipulating abortions to obtain intact baby parts and then selling them.
- Republican politicians failed to defund Obama’s agenda on bringing in illegals and Muslims and dispursing them across our nation.
- The Cruz-Kasich alliance lost the PR meme to Trump who accused them of colluding.
- Cruz lost the meme on freedom of religion to instilling his religion on everyone.
- Every word Trump spewed became the election news, ignoring the competing candidates – we noticed, Fox News.
- Cruz should have demanded a debate with Trump. Tag-along Kasich would have had to be invited.
- Cruz let Trump continually brag about the idea to build a wall when he could have aired his 2012 video on building a wall.
- Cruz should have countered the Lyin’ Ted with the many Trump lies.
A Trump-Cruz debate was needed. Cruz could have been creative and defined their differences on his own terms. Since Trump refused to debate Cruz, Cruz should have had the debate with a Trump fill-in. It could have been a SNL style debate but totally scripted by Cruz resulting in a You-Tube sensation. This debate would have been the most entertaining and informative on the issues.
As a Cruz supporter, the fat lady hasn’t completed her song leaving a smidgen of hope for Cruz to become our nominee. Hope is a good thing.
Republicans had a constitutional conservative presidential choice in Ted Cruz who would have brought back law and honor to our country. They blew it; Cruz bowed out this evening. The current president disregards our Constitution with the assistance of republican representatives and senators. The anger directed at the republican establishment is palpable. Republican voters feared another establishment candidate and when political outsider Trump entered the race claiming that he would make America great again, they jumped to him.
Trump’s popularity soared when he ignored political correctness, especially on illegals and Muslims. The media including the talking heads of Fox News hung onto every word that Trump uttered which was often derogatory remarks about his fellow candidates. Fox News all but ignored the other candidates including Cruz who is on video from 2012 talking about building a wall, one of Trump’s claims that he alone came up with this idea. Cruz became Trump’s main competition and when they debated one on one . . . oh, right, they didn’t. Trump would have been clobbered by Cruz and outed as an ignorant buffoon. News outlets could have reported on policies and backgrounds of Cruz and Trump. Instead, we got to hear Trump call Cruz ‘Lyin Ted’, unhinged, desperate and wacko. Up to the very last day of Cruz’s campaign, Trump tied Cruz’s dad to Lee Harvey Oswald – absolutely nothing to do with policy and the direction of our country. And then Indiana voted for Trump over Cruz who is uncannily intelligent, honest and a truly good person.
Now the election moves to the phase where the media turns against the republican candidate. Cruz warned us that Trump was part of the hated establishment. Now the media will report on Trump’s funding of democrat party politicians, his New York values, his failings, etc. Trump or democrat, the crony Washington party will continue when we had the candidate who would have broken it up. Americans missed the obvious that Cruz was the answer to their anger. The one thing that Ted Cruz can never admit is that he got along with the establishment. If he did, he would be lyin’.
If Trump becomes the republican presidential candidate, once again, the media and Obama-style rhetoric ‘Make America Great Again’ helped make it happen. As a viewer of Fox News, it was clear that every utterance of Trump was the election news. I favored Trump for his assistance in clearing out the establishment candidates. I also welcomed Trump’s style of bashing political correctness. But, Trump’s non-conservative leanings keep coming to light – his New York values are real. Few details emerge on his foreign policy which is summed up in two phrases: build a wall and destroy ISIS. After Trump won the northeast liberal states, Fox News’ O’Reilly declared Trump the winner. Hannity tried to hen-peck Cruz into talking about Trump’s meme of Cruz as a cheater. Hannity could have talked about all the delegates and states that were coalescing behind Cruz. Other major media outlets ran headlines that Cruz was defeated.
Cruz is running a fantastic campaign and working for every delegate he can, plus he just chose my pick for VP, Carly Fiorina. In the earlier debates, Fiorina was the one person that could be counted on for straight-on, biting attacks of Hillary. Both of these candidates are conservative, very intelligent, and would make great leaders of the United States. Cruz can and will win a contested convention. As much as Trump and Fox News want this primary election over, rules apply. The rule is to reach a majority of the delegates – not close to, or the most, but to reach the number of 1,237. The election is now up to the Hoosiers of Indiana. No pressure.
So Trump is winning blue states over Conservative Cruz – the same states that Hillary and even Bernie would win. The election is shaping up that neither Trump nor Cruz will win the majority of delegate votes prior to the republican convention. Many of the headlines and talking heads are blowing off Cruz and crowning Trump as the republican candidate. Cruz has a very good chance of winning the second vote at the convention – his ground game, knowledge of the delegate process, and his steadfastness on constitutionalism give him the advantage.
This is a very exciting election that began with seventeen candidates. Trump has led the pack but the direction was always leading to a Trump versus a conservative. Establishment politicians had no chance this election season. Republicans are furious over the Washington politicians bowing to Obama. Furious does not even define how we are feeling. The U.S. is now fighting for men in dresses to use the same female bathrooms as our young daughters. Hillary, Bernie and Trump are PC on this point. The end game will be non-gender bathrooms if one of these are elected.
Trump is not winning the majority of the red states – Cruz is. Republicans, Independents and some Democrats are getting very tired of the direction of the United States. The Rule of Law has been ignored for far too long. The anything goes faux revolutionary grievances can be put to bed with Cruz. Police and military will be respected. The BlackLivesMatter crowd will not be allowed to burn down blocks of cities. The president will treat LGBT, feminist & minority groups as Americans and not pit these individual groups against the norm. Criminal illegal aliens will not be allowed to roam free in the United States. American Muslims will follow the United States Rule of Law, not Sharia. As Cruz has said, he does have conservative views but that he will not impose his views on us. States will have the rights to decide their laws, not five lifer judges. Finally, the citizens of the United States have the opportunity to vote for an honest, law-abiding, brilliantly smart politician and citizen for the most important job in the world.
BIG DIFFERENCE between democratic socialism and conservatism. Conservatism supports the freedom of individuals to go for it. If a person has a great product, service or idea and turns it into a profitable company, yay for that person. Expand, hire more workers and be successful. Socialism says boo for that person for making too much money. Government’s goal based on any type of socialism is to weaken profitable companies and increase the power of the working people. What the hell do these workers know about running a profitable company and how would they accomplish this? Pure ignorance rules the day. Take Apple and kick out the owner who has the knowledge and ability to run the company, purely for the reason that the owner is making too much money. What do the ‘workers united’ know about running Apple? The company will die along with the jobs and products. It is a utopian dream that it will remain running and profitable. The same goes for a hospital, an airline, an oil company, etc.
When the adults in the room talk about the ignorant millenials, this is what we are talking about. None of this socialist talk about workers uniting, greedy corporations, social justice is new. It is stale, old socialist, commie talk no matter who is saying it, even a grumpy, frumpy grandpa-type old white guy. Naive millenials will respond that they do not want to run the companies, they just want to redistribute the wealth. That, my little friends, is stealing. Imagine that you have a cupcake business and your hard work pays off. People love your cupcakes and pay you for them. The socialist government you voted for takes your profits to give out free stuff to others. Ya going to continue working really hard when you are not rewarded for it? The answer is no, and that answer is the same for anyone with a successful company, no matter what size.
Prior to Super Tuesday, establishment republican Christie endorsed Trump. We can assume that was to help Trump shore up more delegates on Super Tuesday. Trump didn’t do as well as expected with Cruz winning three states and Rubio winning one state. Maybe the support of the establishment hurt Trump. The establishment democrat Reid even stated that he liked Trump the best because he could work with him. This surely hurt Trump more than help.
The next move the republican establishment took was to trot out has-been candidate Romney who was rejected by the conservative republicans. Romney railed against a Trump presidency and how Americans are being played as suckers. This criticism of the public would and has resulted in a backlash against Romney and a clamoring of support FOR Trump. Trump has someone to rail back against which Trump fans love. Perhaps the establishment republicans were shoring up support for Trump because they may have finally understood how hated they are. Reid has now come out railing against Trump calling out the establishment republicans for creating Frankinstein. Could this be double jeopardy by both parties of the establishment elite?
In short, first they are against Trump over Jeb. Then they are for Trump over Cruz and Rubio. Now they claim they are against Trump when Cruz has an opportunity to overtake Trump. The establishment HATE the idea of Cruz who is in the chase for President. The establishment politicians know they are hated all around and now we know who needs to be president.
Anger towards the tone-deaf political elites of both parties has been focused on electing Trump. Trump keeps repeating what the people want to hear and it is starting to remind me of candidate Obama. It’s giving me the feeling of uneasiness. Obama wasn’t questioned on ANYTHING of substance. Neither is Trump. In the latest debate, he stated that his healthcare plan was to cross state lines. He said there was nothing to add to that. He brags that he will get things done – again, familiar words of Obama. His braggadocio is starting to sound just that – a lot of hot air. Trump is the deal-maker but that does not define his values and conservatism. The position of Secretary of State or a business deal committee seems better suited for the Donald, but not president of the United States.
The presidential race has come down to Trump or Cruz. Cruz won in Iowa despite saying that he would end corporate loopholes and subsidies, including paying corn farmers to produce ethanol fuel that gunks up our motors. Cruz stands on his values and does not waiver. Trump favors the ethanol subsidies. We do not know if subsidies are something Trump favors or if he thought it was the political thing to say. The bottom line is that Cruz will end subsidies and Trump will not.
The political elite are beginning to stand behind Trump which tells us that Cruz is the one they fear as president. Trump brags that he can make deals with anyone including his friends on both sides of the parties. That is exactly what we do not want. The cronyism and special favors are exactly what Trump is talking about – deal making. Talk about the power Trump, the political elite and the big corporations will have over the little people. He brags that he knows them all and will work with them. We want someone who has our values and stands up for them. The New York values Trump has held for 60+ years are not our values. Only one person has our values.
Had it not been for Senator Cruz, Rubio and his Gang of 8 would have passed amnesty of over 12 million illegals and put them on a path to citizenship. Trump talks about deporting all illegals and bringing the good ones back. That is Trump’s plan as we have heard repeatedly. Trump admitted on the debate stage that he hired illegals because no Americans wanted the jobs. He’s double-talking: he’s going to send them away but they are needed for American corporations. We really do not know where his values lie.
Cruz is a staunch defender of our constitution. If another progressive ideologue finds his or her way onto the Supreme Court bench, we can kiss our liberties good-bye. We have no idea of the type of person Trump wants on this bench. We certainly have a clear idea of who Cruz would nominate as a Supreme Court justice. With Cruz as president, we can have complete faith that he will find the best person suited for the life-long position.
Cruz has said that he will end the IRS and the following: Department of Energy, Department of Education, Department of Commerce and Department of Housing and Urban Development. These are wasteful bureaus that have expanded government reach and Cruz is determined to close them down. Trump hasn’t mentioned closing any agencies or bureaus. Trump has only repeated the line that he is going to make America great again. Sounds like rhetoric that has no direction behind it. We know how Cruz will make America great again. He will cut down the size and power of the political elite’s power bases. Of course they hate him. Trump said at the debate that Cruz’s colleagues hate him and will not endorse him. Imagine having a president who we no longer have to question the political motives behind each action. Ted Cruz is exactly who we are looking for as a president.
