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

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
