The cringe-worthy candidate
By A.J. Castellitto


"Paul Ryan called me, tremendous call...I spoke with Mitch McConnell today, we had a great conversation." – Donald Trump

He's the unprincipled populist. The Johnny-come-lately whose lack of Constitutional principles is only outshined by his lack of Biblical principles. He is a deal maker and an agitator. He may very well be Hillary's golden ticket.

"Fall for anything" should be his campaign slogan. He is a white-washed, big-government moderate disguised as an everyman's blank slate.

He is 'the Donald,' and he may be one of the biggest train wrecks to (possibly) secure a Republican presidential nomination. Not only will he embrace the GOP Establishment, he may very well bury it! If we don't come to our senses and quick, we may never take back this country.

The remedies are God and Conservatism. Our hearts and our minds must give way to grace and reason. We can only truly be valued as part of a greater created whole.

Love and mercy can never thrive when politically manufactured and mandated. An educated electorate would never knowingly and willingly support a Marxist form of oligarchy rule. These are merely the actions and motivations of a seduced majority.

The early indicators reflect that, head-to-head, Clinton beats Trump. Personally, I just don't get Trump or his mass appeal. I think Trump will ultimately help Clinton.

There needs to be a contrast. A clear ideological distinction needs to be made. It should be made on a big stage so the radical fringe can give way to a moral and lawful American majority.

This is the bottom line (and I mean this from the bottom of my heart), candidate Cruz is almost a freakish accident in how he slipped through our manipulated, we-the-people deprived political system to even get to this point. But here he is! If we let him get away it will be a bitter pill. If he somehow disappoints once he gets in, we can live with it. But for us Republican voters to reject him for an unhinged, issues-challenged, wildcard like Trump would be unfreakinfathomable! http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/01/the-battle-for-the-soul-of-the-right-213548

The fix may be in. Kasich (Plan A), Romney (Plan B), Trump (Plan C), the Establishment and the GOP convention are all major players. http://www.cnbc.com/2016/03/16/we-choose-the-nominee-not-the-voters-senior-gop-official.html

The true target is Cruz. He and We are on the outside. It feels like here is where we will perpetually remain.
