Which GOP Contender will Keep Their Word in the WH

My wife and I were a very nervous and excited young couple purchasing our first home. Our home builder was a dear friend of my parents. Upon going to closing, there were numerous odds and ends the builder had not completed. He vowed to complete my home asap and asked that I sign a paper for the bank stating that he completed all the work on my home.

My mom cautioned me not to sign the paper. Mom said, “Eaten bread is soon forgotten.” I ignored Mom's counsel. Sure enough, after my builder received his check from the bank, I had to chase him for over a year to complete my home.

Just like my builder said whatever necessary to get paid, politicians make voter-pleasing promises on the campaign trail. After they are elected, they forget their promises. Therefore, the final Jeopardy question is – Which GOP presidential contender will keep their word if elected? Having been burnt so many times, trustworthiness, character and backbone must be paramount in selecting our nominee.

In this primary season, we have witnessed honorable conservative candidates dialing back their original comments or apologizing due to pressure from the mainstream media and the candidate's handlers. This raises concerns in me about how these candidates will holdup under world class attacks once they are in the WH.

Leftists (mainstream media, Democrats and liberals) viciously insulted and accused president Ronald Reagan of every nasty thing imaginable. It takes a rare human being to stand firm in the midst of 24/7 relentless character assassination. Thus, my question. Which GOP contender will follow through with their conservative promises?

At the top of my list is Senator Ted Cruz. On several issues, Cruz seems to always end up on the opposite side of the GOP establishment and Leftist Democrats; in-sync with We the People. Cruz never follows the crowd. Eagles fly alone.

Remember Cruz getting hammered by Democrats and Republicans for fighting to defund Obamacare? Win or lose, We the People desperately needed to see someone on our side not simply rolling over and playing dead in surrender to Obama as he transforms our great country.

Cruz boldly says he is a Christian. During the GOP debate, I was struck by how naturally Cruz shared his dad's testimony; transformed from an alcoholic abandoning his wife and three year old Ted to giving his heart to Jesus and reuniting with his family. Politicians do not speak that freely about God and Jesus these days in the political public square. Obviously, Ted Cruz rejected the Left and MSM's memo banning God. As I said, eagles fly alone.

Some GOP contenders are wishy-washy on illegal immigration, even joining the liberal mainstream media in calling Trump racist for addressing it. Imagine how easily such a president's position could be swayed when he or she is trashed by the media.

Another GOP contender hopes to win black votes by exempting them from having to show a photo ID to vote. We do not want a president who is willing to surrender to the absurd Democrat party lie that it is too challenging for blacks to find their way to the DMV to acquire a photo ID. Americans do not want another president pandering to various voting blocs and selectively enforcing our laws.

While any of our GOP 17 are far superior to another socialist in the WH, a few are GOP establishment, big donor and Chamber of Commerce Trojan horses. They talk a good conservative game before the election. But once in the WH, they will prove to be a Manchurian candidate of the Washington cartel.

The Bible repulses the MSM like showing Dracula the cross. Still, Cruz quoted scripture, “you shall know them by their fruit.” Cruz said we see lots of “campaign conservatives.” He added that to win in 2016, we need a consistent fiscal, social and national security conservative. Cruz also touted that he has been a defender of life his entire career. This guy paints in bold colors folks.

Cruz looked America squarely in the eye and made bold promises during the GOP debate causing him to surge in the polls. On his first day as president, Cruz vows to rescind every illegal and unconstitutional executive action taken by Obama. He will instruct the DOJ to investigate the shocking videos and prosecute Planned Parenthood for any criminal violations. He will defend religious liberty, cancel the Iran deal and move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Cruz also vows to repeal Obamacare.

Again, as I stated, while all of our contenders know how to say what We the People want to hear, the $64,000 Question (1950s TV game show) is which one is “for real?” Who will keep their word?

Here is Cruz's last statement of the GOP debate. “I will keep my word. My father fled Cuba, and I will fight to defend liberty because my family knows what it's like to lose it.”

I believe him, folks. I believe him.

  • I will take the risk and say Trump, Cruz, or Carson.  We have terminal cancer, the doctors, from the demoerratic and the rino establishment have made sure to give us the wrong medicine.  We need to try a new doctor and a new pill or we will suffered a painful death.  I will take any of these three instead of any from the establishment.  They all have a price.  And don't forget, Carly is for Carly, she out outsourced 30,000 jobs and she praised the muslims.

  •    I would say that there are 3 who might keep their word and one of those a probably. Trump and Carson WOULD keep their words but Cruz has been a politician so ify.

  • Well I go back to my recent puzzlement. I originally supported him  and contributed to him but (the famous but) then 2 of his votes have made me reconsider. 1. He voted yes on the Corker Iranian bill and 2. He voted yes on the so called "free trade bill".  These two bills both give Obama unprecedented powers and give away senate powers, even If I trusted a president I wouldn't sign away the senates constitutional oversight  powers. It could have devastating effects on our freedoms and the future. Until he explains and justifies these votes I will no longer support him. These votes indicate to me the powers will let him play independent conservative just so far and then when the chips are down he toes the line. 

  • All roads to the White House go through Rockefeller's house. Clean it out and we have a better chance for a president of WTP...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

  • It seems that Ted Cruz is a favourite for presidency to some of you out there;....let's say,... he is a good choice....;.....the question is; -  did any of you did research and investigation on tis man?....even a small one?;....allow me to  help on that.

    The mantra is something like this;....;..."Cruz is  republican conservative and is 100% for  our country....etc, etc..."

    And yet.......the man seems to be.... 'shaking hands under-the-table'

    Sen. Ted Cruz also supports temporary legalization status in the immigration bill

    Astonishing Video by Ted Cruz to Show Pro-Amnesty Bill Supporters and to Use for Recall Support!

    And at the same time (as any smart politician would do.....anyone can remember.....

    Ted Cruz Attacks Dreamers To Win the November Midterm Election

    Ted Cruz's Hidden Amnesty Agenda, that ALMOST nobody noticed!

    Cruz Tries to Claim the Middle Ground on Immigration

    Ted Cruz Lays Down Gauntlet on Immigration Bill

    Sen. Ted Cruz also supports temporary legalization status in the immigration bill

    So, in others words the man is acting like a so called 'moderate' republican (AKA.....a RINO)....shaking hands under-the-table with left and right.....trying and doing deals with GOD and Satan simultaneously....a typical every day establishment republican....from the GOP.

    Mr Cruz also makes money pretending to fight against Obamacare...

    Ted Cruz’s Fake Fight Against Obamacare Is Making Millions

    Simultaneously( in a flip-flop move), the man virtually endorses The Obamacare project with certain kind of 'explanation'
    Media freakout over Ted Cruz buying ObamaCare insurance reaches day two

    The man is very crafty and manipulative in order to gain flashy platform.....

    Actually Mr Cruz emulates Mr Obama , we could invision him as the Barack Obama from the GOP
    Ted Cruz Is More Like Barack Obama Than Ronald Reagan

    Ted Cruz Divides Republicans As He Rises To Prominence

    Of course the man has enemies;...and he called 'RINO'
    Rep. Peter King: Ted Cruz And Rand Paul Are RINOs

    Bottom line, he wants (and is working ferociously for it) ...he wants just power,....to be in the golden-type lavish almost God-like platform.

    Question(s) ; How honest this man could be?....can he be trusted?....or is he another one extension of the regular every day career / do nothing for the ones who elected them politician ?

    Well, is seems that way.

  • Cruz is my pick. Ditto Marcus.

    The issue of illegal immigration is so needed to be handled in a conservative manner, respecting our sovereign boundaries, and the illegal methods being used by the Obama administration, we see this issue is very political, and I truly believe, if not for this one issue, Trump would not have entered the race, since there was an opportunity to make a loud noise and he took it. However, Trump has not proven to be a true conservative, he has not and cannot stand for religious liberty like Cruz has, nor show a family history of the same. Cruz has always stood for marriage between a man and woman and is happily married. There's really no comparison. Cruz 2016!

  • Elaine Trump will flip flop on the issues. During the debate he was asked about Obamacare and he said "Well it works great in Canada and other countries, we need to make it easier to purchase insurance outside the state your living in so insurance companies can compete for your business and that will lower the cost".

    Really !!! It works great in Canada and other countries that have socialized medicine? A week later in an interview with Hannity Trump said "If elected Obamacae is gone. We can't afford it". 

    His team working for him Obviously told him his response at the debate didn't go over well with conservatives so he had to do a flip flop on the issue.

    He also said about taxes that he would just cut taxes but everything with remain the same. We need the IRS because someone has to collect the taxes. As conservatives we need to ABOLISH the IRS once and for all. The FAIRTAX is the best solution. When Hannity asked him about the flat tax or the fair tax he just frowned. So nothing meaning full with change with Trump when it comes to tax reform.

    Just because Trump doesn't take any crap from the MSM or the RINO's doesn't mean he is going to be a conservative if he gets in the WH. We conservatives have been dupped by RINO's enough. We need a strong conservative in the WH life Ragan again and that person is TED CRUZ.

    All candidates on the republican ticket are going to sound and claim to be conservative during the election. Once in office though they unveil there true colors.    

  • I think we should focus as much on Congress! I also think Americans should go a Congressional Safari !  Rhino's shouldn't be on the Endangered Species List ! There are plenty of them alive and well in Congress !

  • Never thought I would say it but Trump and  definitely Cruz.     Had a new guy representing our District.   Conservative, smiling,  wanted what the voters wanted.   After being in DC  a few months,  his newsletter  proudly announced all he was doing.  He also said that now he was in the "know"  he might not be voting  as he promised.   Things had been explained to him.  So he was going to vote for what was good for us lil people.   We simply do not understand the BIG picture.    Seems what he did not know was how much $$$$$$$$$ he could get for being in with the "right" crowd.

  • I like Trump, and I love Mike Huckabee, but I think Cruz will take no prisoners !
