After Cruz I needed a break
By Lloyd Marcus
May 25, 2016

I am chairman of the Conservative Campaign Committee. Our mission which we have chosen to accept is to travel the country helping conservatives get elected. Since January, our CCC team, my wife Mary and I have been traveling state to state campaigning for Ted Cruz. We were in Indiana when Cruz suspended his campaign. A day later, Mary and I flew back home to Florida.

Like fellow members of Cruz's army of passionate loyal supporters, we were emotionally spent.

Reading my email, it seemed our national conservative family of Trump and Cruz supporters were engaged in a huge family feud. Emotions were raw. The Bible tells us that it is unwise to make decisions when you are afraid, angry or tired.

Feeling a bit of all three emotions, Mary and I concluded that we needed a break. While staying engaged in the congressional races taken on by our CCC team, I tuned out all political news. Friends who support Trump were clamoring for me to endorse him immediately. But I was not ready.

I spent a few days taking care of household chores that piled up while we were on the road. Mary purchased a vintage sideboard from the Goodwill, $50 reduced to $40 with the senior discount. I spent several hours in my work shed sanding, varnishing and restoring it. It looks beautiful.

You know how proud parents are. My 87 year old Dad praised me when Cruz was winning states as if Cruz's success was solely due to my efforts. When Cruz suspended his campaign, Dad phoned accusing me of dropping the ball. I explained to Dad that Trump's despicable smear campaign against Cruz was too much to overcome. Even Dad believed the false allegation that Cruz lied about Dr Ben Carson. I told Dad that when 38% of voters believed the absurd allegation that Cruz's dad had something to do with the assassination of JFK, it was time for Cruz to suspend his campaign. http://bit.ly/1TJM0FI

After the GOP convention, I will rally behind and do everything in my power to elect the Republican presidential nominee. Why? Because while our new Republican president may or may not defend conservative principles and values, we know the Democrat party is fully committed to implementing the LGBT and Leftist radical agendas; hellbent on fundamentally transforming America. If a democrat is elected president, the federal government will double-down on the Obama Administration's attack on Christianity, assisting LGBT activists in bullying Americans into anti-Christian behavior. Obama's relentless pursuit to force Catholic nuns, Little Sisters of the Poor, to fund abortion services against their faith is a harbinger of things to come under another democrat dictatorial regime. http://bit.ly/1WEDCeq

Democrats already have it in the works to criminalize and prosecute skeptics of climate change. http://nws.mx/1LZGM3R A democrat president will surely appoint a Leftist to the US Supreme Court ushering in decades of intensified Leftist tyranny.

Even as we speak, judges have repealed parents rights to follow God's command to "train up a child in the way it should go." http://bit.ly/1VjTZN9 Boldly admitting their purpose to make America's children available for LGBT indoctrination, judges are decreeing no home schooling. http://bit.ly/1STVSti

School boards are preventing parents from opting their children out of gay lessons. http://bit.ly/23YsM21

Males physically penetrating each other is their business. Activists and the federal government partnering to pressure states to mandate that parents surrender their children to be taught that such behavior is beautiful, wholesome, good and even superior to traditional male/female relationships is a bridge too far. This is what the Democrat party is aggressively engaged in mandating; surely fast-tracked if a democrat wins the White House.

If I allowed a democrat to take the Oval Office it would make me complicit in furthering the Left's cultural and moral demise of America. A memo exposed the democrat politicized and controlled DOJ plan to legalize 12 new perversions including bestiality, pedophilia and incest. http://nws.mx/1LZGM3R

How on earth could I claim some moral high ground as an excuse to not vote, write in a candidate or run a sure to fail third party candidate; resulting in allowing the Left's hostile total takeover of America?

As a Christian, I rest in the knowledge that the battle is not mine, it is the Lord's. However, this truth does not allow me to roll over and play dead; allowing evil to go unopposed in my country.

Since our nation's divinely inspired and blessed unique founding, far too many patriots have suffered, sacrificed and died to give us the extraordinary freedoms we have enjoyed for over 200 years. Thus, it would be cowardly, irresponsible and dishonorable to surrender God's gift of our great land to tyranny and total debauchery. We must not allow the Godly thread woven into the fabric of our heritage that has held it together to be removed.

In other words, I cannot permanently give up bringing Godly salt to the political process. I will not turn my back on politics, spending my time going fishing and restoring vintage furniture.

I am a conservative American who happens to be black. My country is worth enduring every pain, disappointment and frustration in the battle to restore it. With my last breath, I will fight America's demise and fundamental transformation. Come November 2016, I will vote for the Republican presidential nominee.
