A Republic (If You Can Keep It)…..

En Garde In The Bunker

En Garde In The Bunker

Anyone who doesn’t realize we are now living in a tyrannical State where a political assassination at the highest level just occurred isn’t really paying attention. The rush to cremation pretty much closes the case while we come to the realization that we’re up against Luciferians – so politics won’t work. But isn’t that the problem? “They” are doing this behind metaphorically-closed doors, and We the People will now never know the truth because this has been deliberately compartmentalized and sanitized and “they” are doing everything to get rid of any concrete evidence. To cremate the body is a signal no one can ignore, and there has to be a lot of pressure and a false case presented to the widow that would make her think it’s in his memories’ best interest to dispose of evidence. And these in power are the ghouls to do such a thing. The whole thing reeks of a set up from his leaving his own security at home to the fact that we will never know anything but a story because of the improbable coincidence of remote location; plus it happening on a three day weekend. It’s just too pat which ought to set off alarm bells to anyone not wanting to just get past it.

Meanwhile, back on the campaign trail, Conservative Thomas Sowell has come forth with his prognostication on whom he will be endorsing for president in this crucial election year. Mr. Sowell has been a luminary in the conservative movement for as long as I can remember and no one has ever considered him anything other than an intellectual titan in the Constitutional originalism cause; until that is, he came out and endorsed the most conservative candidate running. Ted Cruz has a few flaws, warts, and he has disappointed some. But when all is said and done (according to Mr. Sowell) he is the most logical, reasonable candidate to endorse. And I am absolutely on board with that. Hopefully Mr. Trump will play the gentleman and not go third party if he doesn’t get his own way. One DemoMarxist Ross Perot is damage enough to this Republic without him being repeated in the form of Donald Trump.

The Republicans can end up with a candidate who cannot even get a majority of Republicans’ votes, much less a majority of the votes in the general population.

If, by some miracle, Trump became president, what kind of president would he be? Do we need another self-centered know-it-all in the White House to replace the one we have now?

Among the other Republican candidates, Dr. Ben Carson is a monumental figure in his field, and he is clearly revered even by people who would not vote for him. But votes are how elections are decided.

The governors among the Republican candidates can at least be judged by how their track record stands up in running a governmental organization. So can Senator Ted Cruz, who was attorney general in Texas. But Senator Marco Rubio has no comparable experience — and his inexperience has shown up in his abortive attempt to join Democrats in promoting amnesty.

If the Republicans are to avoid having Donald Trump lead them — and the country — to disaster, they are going to have to have the majority of non-Trump supporters get behind some given candidate.

Senator Ted Cruz has been criticized in this column before, and will undoubtedly be criticized here again. But we can only make our choices among those actually available, and Senator Cruz is the one who comes to mind when depth and steadfastness come to mind.

As someone who once clerked for a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, he will know how important choosing Justice Scalia’s replacement will be. And he has the intellect to understand much more.
