It is more and more looking like Donald J. Trump will be the GOP nominee for President of the United States in 2016. A champion to stop the tide of destruction that has come upon our Great Republic. I personally like The Donald and I supported him in the first-in-the-nation Iowa Caucus. The reasons are simple.
I am not politically correct. Only two candidates have ever talked about the PC dangers in our society. The Donald and Dr Ben Carson, whom I also like as a candidate.
I find Donald Trump to be an honest man. Even with his billions, he is approachable by the common man. There is a connection not felt with the other candidates. He has changed his views on a number of issues, but so have I over the years as I have matured.
Donald Trump is a leader of men but he is not a boss of men. He seeks out advise from those that know more or better than he does. And he listens to that advise as well. Although the buck does stop with him.
He has stated many times that he would hire the other GOP candidates on stage with him in his administration if elected. Another good sign there and one shared with Gov Mike Huckabee before his campaign ended. None of the other candidates have stated that. So it’s not about the power and shows humility.
Trump says he is a Christian. And I believe he believes he is a Christian. For far too long most Christian’s in America are of the “Sunday” variety. They go to Church on Sunday and at Easter and Christmas and believe that is all that is necessary. But that is really just the first step in many to being a believer. And I am not going to deny Donald my support because of it. In fact I will give him my prayers as well so he can become born-again as a believer.
So I cannot support Marco Rubio. Like Obama, he is a young and inexperienced. He hasn’t raised a teenager at home yet. How can he withstand crisis from without when he has never had one within. It is not Marco Rubio’s time. Maybe in 2020 or 2024 he can run again for the highest office.
The State of Florida sent Rubio to the Senate. But he has consistently missed votes while campaigning for President. If he can’t do the job he was sent to do, why should he get a promotion?
I also cannot support Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz. Ted Cruz professes to be a born-again Evangelical Christian. And with that I hold him to a higher standard and expect him to behave as he claims.
He, his national campaign staff, and his local campaign staff and supporters have consistently behaved in an unChristian like manner. Ted Cruz and his staff and supporters have lied and cheated there way to a victory in Iowa. Fortunately other states have not been hoodwinked by those lies.
Ted Cruz’s treatment of Mike Huckabee at his Kim Davis Rally was also appalling. And a direct violation of “thou shalt not covet.”
Senator Cruz, his staff, and followers all say “look at me, we are the righteous and the religious among you so you should vote Cruz if you are too”. They are the scribes and Pharisees of today.
What the Cruz campaign did in Iowa to Dr Ben Carson was a dirty play. And his staff has boasted that they would do “anything to win”. These are not Christian values and ethics at work. And to have such a play come from the highest level of the campaign shows that the corruption goes to the very root of Ted Cruz core and character.
And most recently we have Steve Deace, a national radio personality, tweeting out false Trump quotes to his followers. Some believing them to be real quotes. And Steve Deace does nothing to prevent that from happening. In fact that is his goal. Another unChristian activity and one that bears false witness.
Lastly the other candidates I cannot currently support as they do not have the momentum to carry them to the nomination. And unless there is a miracle for them on SuperTuesday they should bow out of the race and leave it up to the 3 front runners.
I will state that I will support the GOP nominee if it is Donald Trump or someone else. Even if I currently do not support them. Any of the GOP candidates is better for the future of this Great Republic than Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.
