There is no Republican running on this year’s ticket who is the total package of strong, principled Christian conservatism, charisma, and leadership. Ronald Reagan and Teddy Roosevelt are rare breeds, but even they had their flaws and made mistakes. Using liberals backwards think on polls, pundits are saying Trump has 65% of people voting against him. With that logic that means 80% of people are voting against Cruz and Rubio.
We all already know that Trump is juvenile is his manner of trading insults with others. What he needs is a good coach to tell him how to turn it back on others when they do the same to him as Marco did when he decided to jump into the sandbox. After Marco’s remark about small hands means small weenie, rather than saying he has no problem Trump should have asked why Marco was wondering about the size of his manhood and offer to put it on the podium for him.
While Marco Rubio is certainly charming, there is nothing charming about him getting into the juvenile antics of Donald Trump. And while Ted Cruz is inarguably the smartest man to run for president in a century, he lacks both the charisma and force of will that Ronald Reagan had. The problems he would face in dealing with Republican moderates is being ignored or steam-rollered because none of them will back him on the most important issues of our day.
In the past, McCain lost 2008 because he refused to criticize Obama during the campaign and reveal him for what he is – an Indonesian Moslem bred to hate America. Romney lost in 2012 because he wouldn’t bring the fight to Obama and reveal all the damage his policies had already done to the country and allowed the liberal media to smear him without response. Donald Trump rose to become leader of the pack for one reason alone – he not only brought the fight to the Democrats, but when the liberal media tried to smear him he grabbed them by the scruff of the neck and rubbed their noses in it!
Trump’s virtues –
A proven leader
Trump’s number one virtue is that he is an extremely successful businessman. It used to be that everyone in government were businessmen, not a bunch of career politicians from law school. Our current president is a socialist with no belief in the history of socialism as a wealth destroyed who has surrounded himself with like thinking cronies. His lack of understanding business, along with his ideology of cutting America down to size, has led to an economic malaise known as the Obama Depression.
Obama’s ideas of how the economy should work has led to the shrinking of the American workforce to the size it was forty years ago. There are no opportunities for graduates, and the only way he can generate more taxes to support his astronomical spending has been to raise them. Businesses are being choked down by the Obama regime and Republicans elected to stop him have instead allied with him in sucking up American’s wealth.
An unprincipled conservative
No one will accuse The Donald of being a true blue conservative, but he is a red-blooded American. As a businessman he knows that money isn’t free and what is required to make a business grow. He also knows that, having dealt with greedy politicians, government is the biggest hurdle in making that happen.
Democrats have ruled from on high for the last century. America’s economy grew most of that time due to the entrepreneurial spirit that began this country, and Democrats taught Republicans how to hold out their palms to be greased. Before Wilson, the federal tax rate on Americans was only 7%, now it’s over 40%. Only twice have Republicans gotten control of Congress to balance the federal budget, and the entire federal debt belongs to Democrats (though the liberal media helps them to scapegoat Republicans saying they give the rich tax cuts “we can’t afford,” which means Democrats don’t get all the money they want).
Trump understands that in order to make money you must have money, and businesses cannot have money if the government takes it from them. Having dealt with politicians, Trump understands the corruption and cronyism in Washington that must be stomped down in order for businesses to grow. Obama said six years ago that we cannot drill our way to lower oil prices and shut down much of our drilling, but fracking proved him a fool (but that didn’t stop him from taking credit for it).
One thing to remember when it comes to conservatism is that no conservative is perfectly conservative. Ronald Reagan began his political career as a Democrat and then realized that Democrats taking money was only going to lead to totalitarianism and stagnate the economy. But he also had to cut deals with a Democrat Congress that spent like there was no tomorrow despite the increasing tax revenues the Reagan Recovery generated. Trump may not have been the principled conservative that Ted Cruz has always been, but so long as he is a man of his word and promotes those ideals then why should any conservative condemn him for his past?
Democrats believe businessmen owe their wealth to government for providing them with educated workers and city services. Do Democrats know how government, the people, paid for those? They did it by taxing businesses. Government doesn’t provide anything that the people didn’t pay for first, and people don’t pay the taxes for them except from the wages they earned working for a business. This is not a case of “which came first?”
Trump, like most Christians, does not wear his faith on his sleeve. He doesn’t act like a saint, he doesn’t always do what’s right, and he doesn’t always speak of holiness. What Christian does? Anyone who is truly a Christian knows they didn’t become one because they were saintly, but because they were sinners.
The best measure of a person’s faith is not always their own personality and actions because we all are fundamentally flawed, but what they do when they make those mistakes, and how they treat others. If you want the measure of a man’s heart and soul, observe how he treats those that serve him. Trump and his children are unknown as abusers of any sort, but always respectful of others and willing to assist them or make amends if wronged.
The liberal media smeared Mitt Romney because he put his dog in a carrier on the roof of his car while all his kids sat inside. They smeared him by having one man say he took away his wife’s medical care and she died. In both cases, Romney should have rubbed the media’s noses in it asking; should he have put one of the kids on the roof, and didn’t the man’s wife have medical care till the day she died?
No doubt the liberal media will manufacturer such stories to smear Trump. But unlike Romney, Trump is ready to take that fight back at them and rub their noses in it some more. But that doesn’t stop Romney, the guy who lost last time, the guy the GOP leaders wanted to crush the TEA Party so they could spend American’s money on their friends, from coming out and trying to smear Trump as a conman.
What America needs
American needs a principled leader who will stop the corruption in Washington that is sucking the wealth out of the nation. She needs a leader who will close the door that is allowing millions of illegals into the country to take jobs that Americans will do. She needs a man who will stand against the forces of tyranny, Islamists, and socialists that the Obama regime has assisted in growing around the world. And she needs a president who will uphold our laws and not make his own to impose upon us.
If Donald Trump is not a man of his word, God help us. But if he is, and there are no indications, unlike Obama, that he is deceitful, then his kind of leadership may be even better than Ted Cruz’s principled Reagan conservatism. This is not a time to waste trying to outsmart the opposition, but to crush them down and tear out their anti-American machinations by the roots! Donald Trump may be just the force of nature to do just that.
Ted Cruz got my vote in the Texas primary. But if Trump wins the nomination, and especially if the GOP tries to steal away the people’s choice and give it to someone else, he will certainly have my vote in the general. Trump is no Ted Cruz, he’s certainly no Reagan, but he is what America needs this day – so long as he is a man of his word. Republicans are disgusted with the GOP betraying them, which is why the outsiders are winning. Pray God he will make things right.
