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.
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.
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?
