2 The great thing about being Donald Trump is you can turn your opinions on a dime.

It would be great if his justification was, "I didn't realize that position would be unpopular, so I'm taking a different one."

Don't get me wrong; I am still supporting Trump's presence in the race, and not necessarily him as my choice of candidate.

We have 14 months until election day, and even if he runs away with the nomination, he still has to not do anything that will make me stay home.

My read on him? He's got everything a man can have, except a legacy. He wants one. And with the boat America's in, he's decided that he's got a fair chance of ending up on Rushmore if he manages to stay popular, give the American people what they want, and reverse this country's decline.
He could very well be a cynical self-aggrandizer and still be the best man for the job. It all depends on what he delivers when and if he gets to the Oval Office.

Posted by: mojo at September 10, 2015 06:47 AM (OmBeX)

37 The Right Scoop has been engaging in very misleading headlines about this since the other night. Ever since Trump went on O'Reilly, TRS has claimed that Trump said we should take them in, when context shows Trump ALSO said: "we need to find out where they are coming from and what they represent... they are a security risk... ISIS" might be among them. So, Trump's been wise to the dangers all along.

I would also suggest that Trump would want to take in only the Christians (as Abbott in Australia is doing) because Trump has defended Middle Eastern Christians in every speech for weeks now. Further, Trump has complained that Syrian Christians cannot get into America, yet Syrian Muslims can very easily.

71 I think it's time we admit there's only one rational explanation for the GOPe's behavior in Congress: the other guys have several mid-sized nukes already deployed in the sewers under DC, the President has, patriotically, shared this information with the congressional leadership, and we have to find a way to surrender while still saving some face. Eliminate the impossible, and whatever remains, however unlikely, is the truth. Watson my gladstone; the game's afoot.

The best we can hope for now is a series of hearings, after the Caliphate is established, to make sure this Never Happens Again.

76 Calls for Christians to be given priority among Syrian refugees are discriminatory and reinforce a sense Muslims "are always going to be vilified in the Australian community," the country's highest Sunni authority has said.

Society really needs to grow up and quit being so discriminatory against murderers, rapists, kidnappers, torturers, misogynists, civilization-wreckers, and those who discriminate against non-Muslims.

Of course, I suspected when he was speaking that it was an off the cuff remark.

Now I'm different on this issue than most of the people here. I do think we have some obligation as a country to assist. After all our country help create the mess (well really Obama did).

I would take in a thousand women and children, set them up in a camp in Gitmo, or perhaps a base in the Mediterrean.

However, Trump or whoever will not be President until January 2017, so really everything about this is out of his hands, except for the capability to mold and shape public opinion.

China's falling apart economically, they couldn't launch operations if they wanted to, and while Russia now has a few nice post-Soviet toys, most of their military is using gear that should have been sent to the scrapheap decades ago.
I think you're vastly overestimating the threat they pose, and vastly underestimating how close we are to hitting a tipping point when it comes to foreign culture swamping and replacing our own.

So if Trump caves and goes full illegal immigration, we're back where we'd be with anybody else. And the USA still dies in 20 years.

Second, the GOPe has already crowned Jeb as the one to beat well before the silly season started. Carly and Scott were never going to be in play. If Trump, drops we will once again be shown who we're supposed to vote for.

So, silly season and a poke in the GOPe eye. Go Trump!

A point well taken. Not the most important problem the nation faces.

I suggest that you are incorrect. The current immigration policy tells citizens that their citizenship means nothing. Who will fight for us should we need to fight? I laughed at a leftist tweet yesterday that said,'if the Republicans oppose the Iran deal they should enlist their children in the military for the war it will cause". The military is majority Rep. with a seriously Southern over representation. The combat arms are more so.

Again, who will do the fighting if we destroy the American Compact with its citizen soldiers?

Look, she can't escape her disasterous tenure at HP.

You know what the "moderators" at the CNN debate are going to do.

They are going to set up confrontations with Trump and the other candidates and when they pit Trump against Carly, he's going to end her campaign.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news to the Carly fans of which I was one but it is now clear to me and absoluty essential it is for Trump to be the nominee.

He's a paradigm shift from the established order.

And that's what our ossified politics needs right about now.

Reading elsewhere, it was remarked that Trump needs to make a couple of major speeches on serious issues to flesh out his candidacy. Depending on content, would that alter anything for you? Say he spoke at length on domestic policy, and then on foreign policy, and he hit a majority of notes you agreed with and his proposals made sense to you.

236 With all that is before us in the way the GOPe has, as McCarthy put it. Surrendered and play fights on every single issue that means anything.
In the end, conservatives will pull the lever for Bush, call it a day and continue down the path that led us here. t=The surefire result of that is that it gives people another 4-8 years to come back and complain every day. We get another boogy man to play with.

You would think at some point those conservatives would finally realize that there are no options left and simply roll the dice.

So the question we have to be asking ourselves is if there's probable cause to believe he poses a greater danger than business as usual.
Given that business as usual is killing this country, and will kill it in short order if it continues...
I don't see how you can possibly argue that carrying on the same failed strategy is a good plan.
We're out of options, and this one sucks slightly less than the others, and has the virtue of not having been tried.
For bonus points, the media hates him.

Suppose Trump wins and the GOPe is vanquished. Then what?

Trump has no standards or principles, he is just tapping into raw naked rage. That is what demagogues do and that is dangerous.

The problem with Cruz:

1) Cruz has been running for President since high school.

2) Cruz is an Ivy league lawyer.

3) Cruz has zero accomplishments in the Senate, zero.

4) Cruz would be the whipping boy if Trump wasn't in

5) For another, is he actually a natural born citizen?

6) Cruz wants more H1b visas

Having said all that, Cruz is smart enough to make nice-nice with Trump, why can't his supporters?

You forgot to mention 'and electable'. No way Bush could win as everyone is tired of the Bushes. And Cruz, unfortunately for him, scares many people and so would also lose the election. Carson is just too nice for hardball politics. Fiorina, as has been mentioned, has an H1-B visa problem. And as also been mentioned, Walker is relying too much on the eGOP consultant class. Meanwhile, Trump is gaining momentum in the black community, something no other candidate can claim. Pulling in 10-15% of the black vote would ensure a Trump victory.

So just who do you think is conservative and could, you know, actually win?

All of the "refugees" as could be seen in the picture were young, military aged men.

My best guess:

The world is about to get uncomfortably interesting. And our representatives will have done it to us.

But at least Europe will be the first to enjoy the "unintended" consequences of this misplaced humanity.

A very fair point. Allow me to share my view - the GOPe has, through its inaction and its collaboration with the enemy, shown itself to be incapable of governing in a conservative manner, or of allowing conservatives (save for a few "show" conservatives, of which I believe Cruz to be one) a place in deciding national policy. They care more for their sinecures than their country.

As far as I'm concerned, the party needs to die. Its members - the Boehners, the McConnells, the McCains - ought to be stripped of their power and money and be forced to end up selling their bone marrow in order to afford food. That's not going to happen, but if Teh Donald is the agent by which they can be tossed out of office, I will take that, no matter what Trump's conduct in office might be.

What I want is petty, venal and self-serving, and I freely admit it: I don't want justice. I want revenge.

303 213 Trump has no standards or principles, he is just tapping into raw naked rage. That is what demagogues do and that is dangerous.


Posted by: chemjeff - anti-Trump/anti-Jeb/pro-conservative at September 10, 2015 08:15 AM (2XMpf)

I think (and this is my opinion only) that Trump's lack of principles is probably fairly overstated. People who make deals of the magnitude that Trump makes, have to be principled, have to be trusted, or nobody would make deals with them. Being successful at business (I would think) would also require that.

Trump probably comes within a magnitude or two of matching Obama in terms of ego, but at least he has been able to be successful in deploying that trait successfully as well. Where Obama's hyper-inflated ego is mostly just sickening.

Tapping into rage (again-my opinion) isn't necessarily a bad thing, if, in the long run and by results, extinguishes the rage.

Trump would not be my first choice as nominee, but he might be my second, and if he is the nominee, I will vote for him easily - out of rage.

306 The "seeds" of Alzheimer's disease may be transmitted from one person to another during certain medical procedures, scientists have found.

A study into people who died of a separate kind of brain disease after receiving injections of human growth hormone suggests that Alzheimer's may also be a transmissible disease.

The findings have raised questions about the safety of some medical procedures, possibly including blood transfusions and invasive dental treatment, which may involve the transfer of contaminated tissues or surgical equipment.

Posted by: chemjeff - anti-Trump/anti-Jeb/pro-conservative at September 10, 2015 08:15 AM (2XMpf)

If Trump wasn't in the race, Cruz would still be towards the bottom of the pack. Trump, for all his flaws, is actually able to resonate with people. His immigration plan, you know the one on paper, actually talks about immigration for the benefit of citizens. No other candidate is talking like that. Instead it always sounds like we are obligated to take immigrants or we need immigrants because we are just too lazy.

Also, I think you are missing that Trump and Cruz seem to have some sort of agreement.

I'm frustrated that the GOPe cannot find its balls long enough to fight Obama and the left substantively on anything.
I'm also frustrated that so many nominal conservatives are falling for the Trump schtick which has very little to do with conservative principles and values.
I am deeply worried that so many conservatives (like my OWN PARENTS FFS) are SO pissed off and SO angry that they will sell out their principles for an obvious populist demagogue like Trump.
I want a person in there who will fight for something because it is *the right thing to do*, not just because "the left opposes it" or "the establishment opposes it" as some act of revenge.

I think the question was not "if" you vote for Jeb but what "if" he wins. Then what.

And that goes for the other GOPe candidates.

also, the GOPe will break out the Mississippi shut out crew and do whatever it takes to make sure that Trump, Cruz, Carson or Jindal never see the inside of the WH. So your choices are limited in that regard.

I don't know. And I'll freely admit that. But I find it, at this distance, hard to believe that Trump could be in any measure worse than Obama. I also find it hard to believe that he would be as much of a collaborationist with the Democrats than the GOPe.

369 One major reason that Trump is doing so well is that, like Reagan, he has the ability to circumnavigate the media.

They report, breathlessly, everything he says as though it will be the killing blow for him, finally, and are completely flat-footed when his support is unchanged or actually increases.

Trump is also a yuge assault on The Narrative because of that. The media's been very comfortable in controlling The Narrative, so much so that they can't understand that people STILL don't agree with it.

We are so close to being on the same page here with the possible exception that I am a bit more cynical in that none of the more conservative or outsider candidates stand anymore of a prayer of being elected if the GOPe has anything to say about it (and they do) than Trump does. I say that as a person who likes Cruz but I am al in with Trump as the unproven political commodity.
He talks a big game that he won't be able to accomplish half of at best, he has a liberal past in many regards, he does pivot and/or change his stance. Basically he has done what a lot of politicians have done.
That being said he is the front runner. He is handing the GOPe they're lunch.

It's time to roll the dice. IMHO of course.

Because public opinion is fickle, while principles are grounded in a set of deeper truths.

For example, take the Newtown shooting. Right afterwards there was a bunch of emotion-driven polling that showed "90%" of Americans favored "closing the gun show loophole".

Republicans actually stopped that, in one of their rare moments of discovering a backbone.
But what do you think a President Trump would have done?

378 I saw a picture on Twitter yesterday of hundreds (possibly thousands) of "refugees" crowding a train station in Europe , and accompanying the picture was a comment that pointed out that among the "refugees" was not one child or one woman. All of the "refugees" as could be seen in the picture were young, military aged men.
__________________

I saw a report yesterday that said 75% of the EU swarm so-called "refugees" are males under the age of 50.

Even the non-males turn out not to really be refugees. Those two Syrian kids who drowned; they were coming from a safe home in Turkey. They hadn't lived in "war-torn" Syria for 3 years. Their dad wanted some dental treatment he couldn't afford, so their Syrian relatives in Canada told them to send the wife and kiddies on one of the smuggler's boats to an EU country (at a reported ticket cost of over $1,000), and pretend to be refugees. Then, once the wife and kids had gotten their EU refugee papers, they could apply for a visa for the dad (because it's cruel to separate families!!!), and then all of them could parlay their EU refugee status into Canadian refugee status. Scheme probably would have worked too, if the mom had known how to swim. Sadly for her and her kids, she didn't.

I am starting to see why people don't even consider the GOP because it appears fascist from the outside. I am not taking this abuse anymore. I like how Trump stands his ground, and they cannot provide a reasonable alternative, and refuse to even take up the challenge. To hell with 'em then.

The great thing about Trump is that he's blown up that whole "electability" scam the GOPe runs on it's voters.

If Trump weren't in the race, we'd probably see a repeat of 2012.

Jeb! would be in the lead. Conservatives couldn't get their act together and support one or two guys at the most.

Jeb! like Romney would serially go after whichever conservative raised their head above the pack hammer and tongs-

Some VP hopeful or GOPe flak like Kasich or Christie or Rubio or Graham would be echoing Jeb! and going hard after the conservative who rose above the pack.

It would all be very neat and precise and Jeb! would be the candidate.

He may still be.

But with Trump in the race - Jeb!'s "electability" is severely in doubt. And the GOPe's electability nonsense is revealed as a scam.

The process has slowed down and strung out and allowed the conservative cream to rise and actually be heard.

And shown those conservatives, who though we may like them, are not good campaigners.

With Trump in the race, Cruz, Carly, and Carson have risen based on the merits they bring to the race.

I hope Trump stays in.

If he wins, he wins.

But, at least this time around, the GOPe aren't smothering the conservatives.

You always hear about "flip-flopping" and, in a serious candidate (see previous comments on previous days about Trump being a serious contender, but not a serious candidate) they would be very bad. I would expect a Cruz or a Jindal or even a Jeb! to have considered the refugee situation much more carefully before flapping at the gums.

I *don't* expect that of Trump. As I've said before, Trump is more-or-less a weather vane. But, since right now a tide of America First Populism is on the rise (if I may mix metaphors), he's turning in our direction.

Yes, we have a Christian duty to take in refugees.
No, we can't afford to take them in by the uncounted millions.

Cognitive disconnect? Flip flop?

NO, it's simple arithmetic.

The Christian way to solve the 'refugee' - 'migrant' problem is to go into those countries people are trying to escape, and fix the problem at the source. If necessary, go in with the sword, and convert them to Christianity, and American Justice (the old fashion kind before America was taken over by Obama and his fellow travelers).

Of course, in the here and now, with half the US population on the side of the enemy, we have that problem to fix before we can do anything. A house divided and all of that.

432 The establishment GOP's mantra can be summed up by a line from Paradise Lost: "Better to reign in hell, than serve in heav'n." They would rather run a minority party than be backbenchers in a majority party. Any candidate who threatens their control of the party must either be co-opted or destroyed. They did it to Goldwater, they did it to Reagan, and they've been going at Tea Party candidates furiously over the last few years. They would rather have Hillary win than Trump, Cruz, Carson, or anyone not on the approved list.

As if there have been no consequences to the way we have been voting for the last couple of decades.

We've actively supported, by our own actions and gullibility, the notion that Gruber so clearly announced, that voters are idiots.

Maybe we should try something different. Maybe we should stop just blindly believing what the established parties tell us. Maybe we should believe what we know to be the issues instead of what we are told to believe the issues to be each election cycle.

Just a couple of thoughts.

I have been begging for just this sort of thing.

You don't even need a wall at that point because once you hold the executives personally responsible you will see illegal labor dry up.

And there isn't a Republican candidate running (and this goes triple for the Democrats. Maybe quadruple.)
who couldn't have benefited from starting-

a tough regimen of running and weight-lifting a year or two before jumping into the ring-

it definitely helps with projecting that whole alpha-male image that people unconsciously gravitate toward.

First off- that could happen to any of the Candidates, because the truth of the accusations won't matter, only "the seriousness of the charge."

Second, I fail to see how even Joey Choo-Choo is worse than a vast swath of the Republican field. Without Trump, as others have said, Jeb! would simply follow the strategy* created by his brother's campaign in 2000, improved upon by McCain in 2008, and perfected by Mitt in 2012 to destroy any "lesser" opposition and secure the nomination.

With Trump in the race, that strategy fails. It relies on the other candidates' war-chests being too small, and people flocking to "the strong horse." Trump's war-chest is *not* too small AND he currently *is* "the strong horse."

* Note, this is not a critique of the strategy itself; it is a quite sound strategy. I merely wish it had been used to secure the nomination for actually conservative candidates.

497 @490 You raise a good point about thwarting the Jeb & Co strategy, which is essentially like a no limit poker game crushing the guys without a bankroll.

But I dispute the major premise. IMO Trump is waaaay more likely to do something so bizarre, so "unacceptable" (particularly to the wimmins) as to almsot assure a loss. Hard to quantify of course, but its a combination of his lacking an external governor and (again, my subjective opinion) lacking an internal moral grounding that keeps most of us from engaging in the types of behavior that, if made public at an inopportune time, can result one being run out of metaphorical town.

Lately I get the feeling that Trump and Cruz have cut a side deal: whichever guy wins pulls the other in for the 2 slot. I have been a Cruz guy for a long time but on hearing more from on the campaign trail I just don't know if he will be as effective a candidate as I'd hoped --comes across as too much of an appellate lawyer as opposed to a natural sales guy.

I also wouldn't worry too much about Jeb. I think his support is paper thin and won't survive the genuine hatred of the base.

________________________

The Obama administration sued AZ for requiring voters to verify U.S. citizenship before voting in AZ. Because a state with hundreds of thousands of illegal alien residents certainly doesn't have any reason to worry about those illegal aliens illegally voting in its elections, right? I mean, that would be . . . illegal . . . and we all know illegal aliens are nothing if not scrupulous about obeying U.S. laws!

There are all sorts of federal laws that forbid you from asking somebody's citizenship status. There are also all sorts of laws that prevent hospitals, welfare offices, etc., from asking or reporting on the number of non-citizens getting taxpayer-funded treatments, benefits, etc.

The entire point of these laws is to allow the government to hide from the American people the facts about how many foreigners are here, how many American jobs they are taking, how much of our medical resources they're using, how many billions of American tax dollars they are costing us every year, etc.

How can we possibly craft immigration policies that make sense if our own government is doing everything in its power to keep us from knowing the facts about how many "immigrants" are coming, and how many are employed, committing crimes, chronically ill, on welfare, etc. The government demands that we spend hundreds of billions of our tax dollars every year to provide all sorts of benefits for immigrants -- legal and illegal -- and then they deny us the ability to obtain the facts about how much, when, where, and why those tax dollars are being spent. And if we try to find out, we're sued and called raaaaacists. It's maddening.

It is more likely that Trump doesn't know what he believes about things because he's never thought about them, and his first spoken instinct on most things is usually wrong.

500 Nip Sip, my stepson is the same way. I kicked off our place because I was tired of him treating his dad so disrespectfully. And he'll come up with these ideas that are just delusional.

Told me I should chill, because he couldn't bother to pay $35 for the electric bill. Said it wasn't a big deal. But if I can't trust him to do the little things, why would I trust him to take care of the big stuff?

501 Now, Adams does think Trump will win the election but you probably (to the extant you care what Adams thinks, and some of you do for some reason) should understand his prediction is based on Adams' low estimation of the state of the electorate, and not Trump's own candidacy.

Posted by: MTF at September 10, 2015 09:32 AM (TxJGV)

I care about what Adams thinks for the same reason any of us should: he's outside the conservative echo chamber that we find so comforting. He's a part of the pop culture landscape that the Right is so clueless about, but which plays an increasingly large role in determining the fate of the country.

Yes, Adams is fascinated by how Trump is selling himself, more than anything. And his opinion of the electorate is exactly what most of ours has been in recent years. His blog is a good read, along with his pieces in the Wall Street Journal. He's got a libertarian/capitalist bent that's not common.

505 467 >>>>Cj- I am a wall plus kinda guy. I want employers jailed. Don't do a damn thing about deportation, just start rounding up stock brokers' wives for hiring illegal nannies.

I have been begging for just this sort of thing. Forget about the wall, stick a fine not on business but on the business owners/CEOs. $10,000 and 30 days in federal prison per illegal knowingly employed. You don't even need a wall at that point because once you hold the executives personally responsible you will see illegal labor dry up. I also think that any candidate who proposed such an idea would immediately get a ton of attention and at least a five point bounce in the polls.

Count me with Chemjeff- I am confused at the love for Trump on this site. I don't trust him.



From what I can tell there are 2 or maybe 3 of the Horde who have
anything that could be called "love for Trump." The rest of us love
that his lose cannon-ness is currently pointed at the Ruling Class and
the MFM.



To paraphrase: "We cannot spare this man. He fights."

Probably. The whole refugee thing blew up just this past week. There is no reason why ANYONE should have a well thought out policy at this point.

Trump's first instinct is people fleeing a war torn area need help. That's not a bad instinct. There are multiple policy options available to help or not.

512 The Gang of 8 bill wasn't tough enough on border enforcement, but anyone bitching about the fact that we don't have a procedure in place to verify immigration status is partially at fault considering both previous attempts at passing a law on the matter would have dealt with it.

Both the Gang of 8 and Bush immigration bills would have changed the law to require e-verification for all employers. Gang of 8 even included provision that all workers were required to be e-verified or the entity hiring them could be subjected to up to a $7500 fine. The Bush plan was similar.

This alone would have solved much of the problem, and you even had Democrats on board with it.

No more comprehensive approaches. Just pass this piece so we can get on with cleaning up other areas of policy that need desperate attention.

513 Add to that the fact that millions of Mexicans are settling in territory that they believe is rightfully theirs, and...there's trouble.
_______________________

They're also settling in places they never had any historical presence in, or even arguable claim to. Places like Virginia, Georgia, Maine, etc. What's theirs (or once was arguably theirs) is theirs, and what's always been ours is theirs too.

Right or wrong, the Government of Mexico sold the disputed SW territories, like AZ, to the United States many years ago, for what was at the time a huge amount of money. The Mexicans, like the Americans, once made a claim to these territories, and the Mexicans' claim was bested by a stronger claimant. Then the Mexican government sold off what remained of Mexico's claims for money. That should be the end of the story. You don't get to give up and sell out, and then decades later scream "hey, I still want that so it's mine and always has been!" It is not theirs, no matter what fairy tales the Mexicans tell themselves, and I'm sick of all the phony grievance-mongering over their "stolen" land.

Its very easy to find the problem employers. Just look at the cities and towns where the demographics have changed dramatically over the last 20 years. Look for the big employers in those areas.

517 The Gang of 8 bill wasn't tough enough on border enforcement, but a... both previous attempts at passing a law on the matter would have dealt with it.

False. The GOP passed a bill in 2006 requiring the construction of a border fence. In 2007, they gutted the same law. The fence was never built. The GOP cannot be trusted on border security.

Both the Gang of 8 and Bush immigration bills would have changed the law to require e-verification for all employers.

False. Both bills contained so many waivers and loopholes the e-verification parts were meaningless.

Posted by: V the K at September 10, 2015 10:05 AM (O7MnT)

518 e-verify should be the law of the land. But here in Illinois the governor at the time (blowjobovitch, or quinochio) said they would not enforce it. So again democrats only want to enforce the laws they like.

519 Where did parental respect go? My sons say shit to me that my dad would have beat the shit out of me for.

Parents? No respect, it's all about them. Fuck you, I am me, hear me now!


Respect is earned; it isn't granted automatically simply because one managed to reproduce. Try a thought experiment: replace yourself along the way with your dad at the same age. Do you think he is treated with the disrespect you are being shown? Why not? Here is another thought experiment: replace your dad with yourself - do you have respect for your new dad?

It's called the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, and it ended the Mexican-American war. The treaty required the U.S. to pay $15 million to Mexico and to also pay off the claims that American citizens had against the Mexican government (for another $3.25 million). It gave the U.S. the Rio Grande as a boundary for Texas, and let the U.S. have ownership of CA and the area that is now AZ, NM, NV, UT and parts of Wyoming and Colorado. Mexicans who were still living in those areas had the choice under the treaty of relocating to Mexico or remaining in the now-U.S. territories and becoming U.S. citizens with full civil rights. Over 90% of the Mexicans stayed and became Americans.

We "stole" nothing from the Mexicans. We fought for it, won it, and then paid them generously for it anyway. We had already kicked their asses in the war; we didn't need to then pay them millions to recognize our victory, but we did. We bent over backwards to be more than "fair" to them, and we've been rewarded for our magnanimity and generosity ever since with decades of lies and whining about having been "cheated" and, for the past few decades, with what amounts to an outright invasion. I'm sick of it.

521 >>>If you want someone who is actually opposed to liberals, has fought the GOPe, and *actually has standard and principles*, then why not support Cruz instead? Trump has no standards or principles, he is just tapping into raw naked rage. That is what demagogues do and that is dangerous.

Right. Trump is dangerous. Cruz is not that dangerous. Safe people do not win fights. Hell they don't even get in them.

Cruz is not as good as a demagogue. The simple fact is if Cruz was polling 40% I would be on board with Cruz. He's not. Trump is.

Trump has real assets in a democratic system that Cruz simply doesn't, things like his celebrity and demagoguery. Cruz is going to try to win with his principles and people are going to say he talks like a fag and his shit's retarded. In reality, principles don't win elections nor lead offenses. It's boyscout stuff. If people writ large were about to sit down and discuss principled ways to run the government we wouldn't be anywhere near the situation we are in. Trump is a man of his time.

There is the way the world should be and the way it is. Principled men complain how the world should be. People like Trump operate in how it is and they're more effective for it.
