Salesman vs Statesman

Will the GOP be the party of the brash statements without the ability to back them up or the party of proven conservative principles that are upheld even at personal expense? Will we be the party that blames everyone else for our troubles like the Democrats or do we believe in personal responsibility and addressing our flaws? Are we a party led by a man who looks at the court system as the place where he sues and gets sued or a man who has fought at the Supreme Court to protect the rights of Americans?

I’ve written ad nauseam about the weaknesses of Donald Trump and the strengths of Ted Cruz, so we’re going to keep it simple with this short post. Donald Trump is a salesman. Ted Cruz is a statesman. Knowing the difference is arguably the most important political distinction you’ll make in your life.

Any other year, these would be simple questions to answer. The crossroads that the Republican Party now finds itself at will not only determine whether or not the GOP will thrive but also whether or not America will survive. This is it. This is our time. Don’t blow it.
