Cruz is a brilliant, idealistic young Latino, the devoted son of an immigrant preacher, a top student at Princeton and Harvard, and a courageous conservative warrior. Why is so much of the GOP's traditional leadership still refusing to embrace him as a dream candidate?
Perhaps because this same leadership, who orchestrated a loss to the unpopular Barack Obama in 2012, is intent upon once again pushing one of their own on a reluctant Republican Party. Rather than learning from successive defeats and an increasingly alienated base, this #NeverTrumpOrCruz madness now stands on the brink of shattering the GOP. It is hard to see the Republican Party surviving such a rupture—much less winning the election.
There is only one way forward for the Republican Party: It must continue its evolution from a party favoring crony capitalism and big government conservatism to the small government, free market conservative party that its base supporters demand. In 2016, Ted Cruz is the last, best hope for the Republican Party. For those of us who believe that Progressivism is destroying the country, he is the last, best hope for America.
It's time to drop the #Never nonsense and work to nominate Ted Cruz.
