Ted Cruz Proves He Is The Greater Man

“This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election. 

In Cleveland, I urged voters, “please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket whom you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.” 

Ted CruzAfter many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump,” said Senator Ted Cruz in a Facebook post that went live on Friday. 

In making what he called the agonizing choice to endorse former rival Donald Trump after Trump’s scorched earth primary campaign, in which Trump and his supporters attacked Senator Cruz’s wife and father, Ted Cruz has shown he is a greater man than are his most vehement detractors and many of his most admiring supporters. 

Did Ted Cruz “cave” and abandon his conservative principles as some diehard #NeverTrump adherents claim? 

No, Ted Cruz’s initial refusal to clearly and unequivocally say he was voting for Donald Trump was not because he thought Hillary Clinton or one of the third party candidates would advance conservative principles with more vigor than Trump would, it was because of the personal – and justifiable – animosity generated during the primary. 

So, Cruz didn’t abandon his conservative principles by finally endorsing Donald Trump, because no conservative principle is served by impeding Trump’s campaign to defeat Hillary Clinton and keep her and her corrupt minions away from the levers of power in our government. 

And in pointing out that “This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history” Ted Cruz recognizes better than anyone in the #NeverTrump crowd what is really at stake in this election. 

The news media and DC’s elite pundits like to dance around the facts with euphemisms like “spoiler,” but Ted Cruz, unlike those Republicans and conservatives who continue to say they are #NeverTrump, was unwilling to look himself in the mirror and say:

I’m OK with Hillary Clinton appointing three or four Supreme Court appointments. 

I’m OK with Hillary Clinton appointing hundreds of Federal Court Judges. 

I’m OK with Hillary Clinton stripping me of my Second Amendment rights. 

I’m OK with Hillary Clinton using the power of the IRS and other federal agencies to terminate my First Amendment rights and the First Amendment rights of other Conservatives. 

I’m OK with Hillary Clinton expanding Obama’s open borders and unlimited immigration policies. 

And, I’m OK with the Hillary Clinton deciding the outer limits of my freedom of conscience and whether or not I can worship as God and raise my children as my conscience dictates. 

“Whatever path I went down, there were going to be people who were dismayed,” Mr. Cruz said at the Texas Tribune Festival over the weekend. “There was no option that wouldn’t result in people being deeply, deeply unhappy.” 

Senator Cruz said he doesn’t know the political repercussions and is “not smart enough to figure that out.” “I’m trying to do the right thing: follow my conscience. What is right for this country? And my view, from the beginning, is do what’s right, stick to your principles, and the politics [will] work out,” Cruz said according to reporting by David Sherfinski for The Washington Times

On December 9, 2015 when CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie endorsed Ted Cruz for President he said, “conservatives and Republicans are often not the same. However, they definitely have one thing in common: They desperately want to win the White House in 2016. For Democrats this election is important, but for Republicans and conservatives 2016 is not just crucial to the survival of this country and constitutional liberty – it is the ball game.” 

Senator Cruz’s self-deprecating “I’m not smart enough to figure that out” belies the fact of his incisive intelligence – Ted Cruz understands, as we do, that this election is the ball game for conservatives. 

Our great disappointment in Cruz’s failure during his remarks at the Republican National Convention to give a clear endorsement of Donald Trump was based upon two primary concerns: First, that it would take one of the most effective spokesmen for limited government constitutional conservatism out of the fight in the most consequential election of our lifetimes. And second, that it would split the conservative movement so deeply that it might lead to the election of Hillary Clinton. 

Welcome back to the fight Ted, you’ve shown your humanity and greatness by putting your country ahead of your justifiable personal hurts, now let the healing of the conservative movement begin.

This man just found out to throw tantrums got him no where with the American Voters! Surprised that the left hasn't found enough on Cruz t shut him down for good! It will probably be next Voting Poll to replace him! vote Trump

Sorry, CHQ, Ted is dead to me ...

There is NO coincidence that Ted ONLY came out with this oh-so-lawyerly-and-hands-twisted-in-angst nonendorsement endorsement AFTER Rence Priebus made vague threats against Ted getting the support of the party if he ever wants to run again.

And ONLY AFTER losing Big Donors for months.

Fool me once ...

I just wish CHQ would take the blinders off. Schlafly was right from the beginning. Please don't let Ted usurp Schlafly by believing his johnny-come-lately-for-his-own-self-interest over her clear-from-the-beginning-assessment-of-these-two-candidates.
