Human Ego Stands in the Way of Saving America

Back-biting trolls out to destroy either candidate and their camps, while tearing apart conservative media, are eating us all alive

Ego (gargantuan),  political human ego, stands in the way of saving America.

It was ego that hanged noble America in 2008, when a man whose unstoppable ego to take down America far surpassed any intent of serving the people who elected him.

If anything that should have been learned in the interminably long past eight years, it should have been to beware of oversized, leaning toward crazed ego.

But eight years on,  right in the midst of the daily decline of America come two sparring spitfire egos that are giving droves of average Americans primary battle fatigue.

Constitutionalist Senator Ted Cruz and folk hero businessman Donald J. Trump are throwing so much mud at each other, there is no longer a clear path toward retiring Obama protégé Hillary Clinton.

How convenient for who is sure to be, next to Obama, the second worst president in latter-day American history.

How do We the People red-flag Cruz and Trump when neither one seems able to see see beyond their own egos?

The teaming up of Cruz and Trump would pump oxygen into the 2016 presidential election race, and throw the proverbial monkey wrench into Hillary’s chances.

Prime, recent examples of ego on display: Ted Cruz: “I Have Zero Interest in Being Donald Trump’s VP, If He’s the Nominee Hillary Wins.” (Breitbart, April 18, 2016)

Trump “just came as close as he ever will to naming his Vice Presidential running mate.”

“It appears he wants Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to join the ticket. This is a political earthquake that would shake the political establishment to the core!

Could you imagine the two biggest thorns in the side of Obama being on the same ticket next year?

“Donald Trump on Tuesday named Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) when asked about his possible running mate in 2016.

“Ted Cruz is now agreeing with me 100 percent,” he said when asked about his vice presidential pick, according to Lifezette.

“Well, I like him,” Trump told radio host Laura Ingraham during her broadcast. “He’s backed everything I’ve said.”

“Unlike most of the Republican presidential hopefuls, Cruz has mostly refrained from attacking Trump, even appearing alongside him at a rally in September against the Iran nuclear deal.

“The pair has also struck similar tones on topics such as border security and illegal immigration.”

Why is the blame falling on candidates? The voters are responsible for trouble we are in today. The idiots who voted for Obama because he is black and those that put pet peeves before God and Country are to blame. These people would riot and destroy others property over something they knew nothing about. The EGO of the voters that are problem. In all my years of voting I have always put my country and God first and not some party. It is so easy to place blame on others than admit that we screwed up electing our fools in Washington.

You have to remember in 2012 there was a lot of cheating and corruption going on in the voting system. Stuff ballet boxes, illegals voting, dead people voting, many voters voting 4 and six times for Obama, and Republican voters just plain not voting.

Lawrence, it is not just the ego of the voters or the candidates that has brought this country down.  It is also the greed of power that the government and the two parties want more of.  That greed has been going on since Abraham Lincoln changed our Constitutional Republic into a very powerful centralized federal government that knows no limits except what they give themselves.  They used to pretend to follow the Constitution in order to appease the people but now they are so powerful that they don't even bother to do that.  The people of this country have 4 choices when it comes to voting,  1. Republican, 2. Democrat, 3. Independent, or 4. Don't vote.  None of those 4 choices have really changed anything.  People are getting fed up because nothing we do makes a difference so more often than not, they choose number 4.  It is also not our fault that the fools are in Washington.  We vote in people we think will do the right thing and when they get to Washington, they simply forget everything they promised to do and continue with the Washington agenda. 

Not eligible.

Why should a politically experienced (meaning, has what it takes to defeat Hllary in November) conservative patriot ever find it necessary to team up with an arrogant shady businessman in the first place?  We need a strong ticket to defeat Clinton,  To that purpose, I suggest one of the following potentials:  Cruz/Rubio or  Cruz/Pence (that VP being Mike Pence of Indiana,  another proven and seasoned conservative),   Either one would be dynamite in November.     

Victoria & Kat:

Why would anyone in this country want a rerun of the Obama charade?  Obama is not constitutionally eligible to hold the office of POTUS. 

Neither is Senator Cruz.  He is not even a U.S. citizen, never mind a naturalized U.S. citizen (also not eligible) since he was born to  Canadian citizen parents in Canada at a time when Canada did not recognize dual citizenship.

Just as Obama did, Senator Cruz has sealed all his records and will produce no evidence of his citizenship in the U.S.

Can anyone produce a U.S. birth certificate for Senator Cruz since that would possibly be one way to claim natural born status if his mother had not previously given up her U.S. citizenship?

I couldn't even reach Mike Pence office and ask Why he hasn't sent the State Police  to our 12 counties dealing in voter fraud to do an audit of their records. 

Beating Clinton will be easy for Trump.He won't look past her history of lawlessness. He will beat her with it mercilessly. She's a baby killer. She's a fraud, at least she's been found guilty of it. Unlike the we tablishment candidates that insist we play nicely Hillary will be forced to defend the indefensible .... Her life of public disservice.

She LAUGHED about defending a child rapist. That should do it, plus what she said to and about the Benghazi deaths.

I do not want Cruz any where near the Oval office.

Tell us WHY?

I keep seeing a lot of conflict between Tea Partiers. My view is we've turned on each other so viciously over these two men (not gods) that we'd be likely to stay home on super tuesday if our candidate does not win. I myself have been attacked because I made the mistake of saying which of the two I was going to vote for. This is not good for us. I hope God blesses us with the best of the two, one of the two the majority has picked, then we destroy our evil opponent on the left.
That is if we don't become so bitter we sit this thing out.

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
