Merger of Trump & Cruz Supporters Could Save GOP and America PDF Print E-mail

A merger of Trump and Cruz political campaigns is not likely, but could capture the Republican Party for Conservatives and create a real contrast between Democrats and Republicans for the first time in modern History. The two camps control 70 to 80 percent of the Republican electorate.

There is much in common between the true Conservatives in both camps. However, there is little chance that the two campaigns will be allowed to get together at the convention in Cleveland. Such a merger would be very detrimental to the party elite that hold the power at the top and the RINOs (Republicans in name only) that hold the power at the county and state level in many cases.

Neither candidate is perfect, however both Trump and Cruz have a lot to offer in terms of returning the nation to a constitutional republic based on laws rooted in morality. Both candidates are very intelligent and the best at what they do.

Nikki Haley: Another Disappointment PDF Print E-mail

Governor Nikki Haley has been a disappointment to many citizens who worked hard for her election. She is the most recent in a series of South Carolina Governors who have been able to trick voters into supporting a mythical candidate who was much different from the real person.

Haley replaced Gov. Mark Sanford who was one of our better governors, but had a problem keeping his zipper zipped.

David Beasley was a young Democrat who became a “Christian” and won the Governor’s office as a Christian Republican. Beasley had a great personality but lost a bid for a second term by trying to please both his old liberal friends and his new Conservative supporters. Governor Beasley, like Haley, was considered ideal as a vice presidential candidate. He announced that he favored removal of the Confederate battle flag from the capitol dome. This pleased the liberal media and enhanced his national political potential. He lost credibility when in an effort to calm his Conservative Christian political base, Governor Beasley announced that God woke him up in the middle of the night and told him to take the flag down. Beasley instantly became a one-term governor and South Carolina suffered through 4-years of a Democrat Governor.

This year marks the official 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. Most Americans will never know and others have no factual knowledge of the war that cost thousands of American lives over a period spanning more than a decade.

Any truthful historical assessment of the Vietnam War including that of Communist leaders has concluded that the war was won by the United States military with assistance of allies. They also concluded that the victory was forfeited and lost by the United States Congress and the liberal media. Politicians were influenced by the Communist sympathizers operating on college campuses and Communist sympathizers inside the government as well as influential voices in the media.

The Ultimate Outsider PDF Print E-mail

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has described Senator Ted Cruz as the “ultimate outsider” and the ideal candidate to win the Republican nomination for President of the United States in 2016. All establishment candidates have been defeated badly by outsiders Cruz and Trump, both of which are despised by establishment Republican Party leaders. That is why the endorsement of Sen. Cruz by Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney and other insiders has raised eyebrows and caused concern for many Cruz supporters who fear their candidate is being used and will ultimately be abused and abandoned when he has served the establishment’s purpose.

Senator Cruz has earned a reputation for opposing the establishment Republicans in the Senate on virtually everything they proposed. His most vicious critic was South Carolina’s senior senator Lindsey Graham who recently endorsed him. Graham apparently hates Trump more than he hates Cruz.
