TO THOSE OF YOU WHO SAY WE SHOULDNT SUPPORT CRUZ BECAUSE HE IS INELIGIBLE, this:
I am fully aware of the thoughtful and well-meaning constitutional arguments on both sides of this issue, and I personally and objectively believe that, like Rubio, Chester A. Arthur and Jindal, Ted Cruz is very likely constitutionally ineligible.
That said, however, and faced with the awful prospect of either a felonious Alinskyite (Hillary) or a totally ideologically unknown loose cannon usurping the White House next January, I’ve taken the desperate position that “extremism in defense of liberty is no vice” (Goldwater); thus, with that justification in mind, I am necessarily supporting Cruz who, except for his arguably being on the wrong side of the eligibility issue, is a demonstrably constitution-first guy we can clearly count on to restore constitutional order. And since the entrenched political class, nearly to a man, loathes Cruz, does that not demonstrate his credibility as an "outsider" and a fearless defender of our republic? And isn’t that precisely what our greater patriotic purpose should be?
Therefore, I URGE all patriots who champion a return to constitutional order and first principles to support Cruz both financially and on the ground as volunteers.
Think about it: nothing less than the survival of what precious little remains of our constitutional republic is at stake. In that light, waxing philosophically over the issue of eligibility seems a tad inappropriate and misdirected.
Dare we permit the election of either Donald or Hillary? Hillary is the devil we know; Donald is the potential devil we don't really know at all.
Please jettison the blinders and temper your justifiable anger long enough to successfully get this nation through these primaries and the general election in November. Get behind Ted Cruz!!! I beg you!!! See beyond your anger and disillusionment. This could well be our last chance to get it right.We simply cannot risk blowing it again.
