The support of the Republican Establishment is within reach for Ted Cruz. All he has to do is apologize to Mitch McConnell for calling him a liar. That’s it. All will be forgiven and he’ll receive tons of endorsements from his powerful colleagues in the Senate. Of course, Ted Cruz is unwilling to do that which is why he deserves every single bit of support, particularly from those who support Donald Trump because they think that he’s anti-Establishment.
First and foremost, Donald Trump is no anti-Establishment. He IS the Establishment. He represents the cronyism that has made Washington DC the cesspool of disastrous deal-making that it has become since Ronald Reagan left office. Those who believe that Reagan was the great deal-maker can point to a couple of great deals that he made, but they were not in the same league as the corruption that has become so commonplace since the 1990’s in Congress. In fact, Reagan was much more like Calvin Coolidge (and Cruz, for that matter) as an obstructionist to “progress” that didn’t make sense.

The type of business as usual that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton represent is exactly what we don’t need in the White House. We need someone strong who’s willing to fight for Americans, not the elites in DC. It’s time for people to wake up and smell the stalwart conservatism that can save the country, the type of conservatism that’s only represented by Ted Cruz.
