Senator Ben Sasse is a conservative. He’s a Christian. He’s not part of the Republican Establishment and he was one of the first DC politicians to speak out about and even directly call out Donald Trump about his liberal and/or ludicrous policy proposals. For these reasons alone, conservatives should consider supporting him.
Call me a conspiracy theorist. Call me prescient. Call me bitter. When John Kasich stayed in the race beyond his big victory in his home state of Ohio, I wrote that I believed he had made a backroom deal with Donald Trump to help him secure the nomination.
In Indiana, Ted Cruz was eliminated from the GOP race. Fingers are being pointed. There seem to be so many people to blame. The reality is this: WE are to blame. By “we,” I mean faithful Christians and true conservatives.
On Tuesday, voters in Indiana go to the polls to determine the future of this country. Most are saying that if Ted Cruz can’t win Indiana, his chances approach nil for getting the Republican nomination. While that’s debatable, we’ll stipulate it for now.
When considering the things that have made America the most prosperous and powerful nation in the history of the planet, there are many options. Some would say it’s the people and our embrace (albeit reluctant at times) of diversity that built this nation of immigrants. Others might point to serendipity; we are rich with natural resources and favorable conditions through which a nation can flourish. There is, of course, a spirit of excellence that has been instilled in our leadership since the first Lieutenant ordered men to attack the British in the Revolutionary War.
Seven months ago, Donald Trump was exposed as having pretty much no idea how foreign policy works. It’s not just that he didn’t know the names of countries or leaders; that can be corrected. After all, it’s been 47 years since he had to study up on anything outside of real estate and multi-level marketing schemes, so we can assume that he’ll get up to speed…
As expected, Donald Trump swept the Northeast states. It’s important to understand that it was expected because it means that nothing has changed in the math. For Trump to get to 1,237, he needs to win in Indiana.
After losing every debate he’s been in, Donald Trump is obviously reluctant to debate Ted Cruz. He has the lead and he lacks understanding of the issues, so conventional wisdom dictates that he should avoid them at all costs. Unfortunately, he also desperately needs the practice.
I don’t like John Kasich as a politician. I don’t know him personally, but as a conservative it’s hard for me to imagine ever voting for a ticket that included him. Then again, this is a strange election cycle so ruling out anything is naive.
