Cruz Went Way Beyond Kasich

Let's face it folks Governor Kasich proved himself a piss pants whining spoiled brat when he stayed in the running for the Republican presidential nomination while not standing any possible chance of winning it except by what in essence would have been cheating. Then he continued to show his true colors by refusing to attend the Republican National Convention. I guess though that was to be expected after his childish, rotten child at that, behavior during the months leading up to the convention.
Cruz, on the other hand, seemed like a responsible adult for the most part during the debates and all of the months leading up to the convention. Once things were seriously underway, I for one had thought him the best choice among all the candidates for the Republican nod. Then though, it became obvious that the voters overwhelmingly preferred Trump and that Trump would come out on top. In other words, there was not a chance for any other Republican candidate to come even close to the amount of votes he had garnered. What was a responsible person, who definitely would not vote for or in any way assist Hillary Clinton, to do? It was obvious the answer was: Support Donald J. Trump for president.

It did not matter if you were once Trump's rival, it did not matter if you platforms were different, it did not matter that you liked or disliked Trump, it did not matter if it was personal and Trump had insulted you - what mattered was that you had to do, were obliged to do, were compelled to do what was best for America. By the time of the convention, that was to support Trump 100%. Ted Cruz thought otherwise and he got up on stage and showed how little of an American he was by refusing to endorse Donald Trump. He showed himself to be in essence a sniveling little brat boy and did that the very next day when he came out and tried to defend his failure to endorse Trump by talking about his own personal issues that he had with Trump, basically saying he could never endorse anyone who had insulted his family. This from a man who had been running for the nomination as the Republican candidate for the presidency - his feelings were hurt and thus he could not do what was right!
Let me tell you something about America and loyalty to her. I worked in the federal government for 32 years. I (and every other federal law enforcement officer) took an oath, more than once, and was sworn thusly (or very similar to it): 

'I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.'

Ted Cruz, a U.S. Senator who also swore to defend and uphold the very same Constitution by way of a very similar oath of office, was more concerned about his personal feelings when it came to Donald Trump's nomination than he was about defending the Constitution from a want to be tyrant the likes of Hillary Clinton. Let's face it - Cruz would have run against her had he won the nomination and he would have done so vehemently but he did not win it. Yet, for Cruz and any Republican, Conservative or freedom loving American citizen, the utter defeat of Hillary Clinton in her bid for the presidency and protecting America should remain the primary goals in this election. Cruz was too small of a person to see that and decided that his feelings were more important than the future of the United States of America. What he did, when he failed to endorse Trump, was to assist Clinton in her bid to become president. Because of that, I am certain that I could never, and I do mean never, support Cruz should he run for the presidency again at some time in the future. Since his life, his loyalty, his politics seemingly are ruled by such petty emotions, in the face of the protection of our Constitution and of our country, how could I or anyone do anything but oppose him. Damn, he sounded like our nemesis, he sounded like Hillary Clinton making excuses as she always does.

All the best,
Glenn B
