I've been torn between Cruz and Trump.
Between intellectual honesty, total commitment to the Constitution, what's right, no matter the cost or situation....and the excitement of a voice of the People, expressing and articulating our fury and our frustration.
Looking back, I'd say my head was for Cruz and my heart was for Trump.
Until this weekend.
Cruz, to whom I was attracted because I utterly trusted him to do the right thing even when it was hard, unpopuar and everyone was against him...
...did just the opposite this weekend, by blaming Donald Trump for the violence at his rally location in Chicago and FAILING to stand against mob intimidation of a presidential candidate, and his supporters by the thugs of MoveOn and BLM and OWS...and Bernie's goons.
It shocked me. I saw reports on Twitter, and refused to believe it until I saw the direct quote from a respected source, and then, finally, saw the video of Cruz himself actually saying it.
That was a big betrayal of trust. When the chips were down, he opted for political gain instead of righteousness. And that, as I said, was the ONE reason I supported him: the fact that he would NEVER do that, but always stand up for what was right.
Now he's just another politician, who makes promises, sounds good, and does whatever's good for him at the moment.
How, exactly, does that make him different from the rest of them?
I took the Cruz bumper sticker off my car Saturday.
We officially broke up.
