Let me say from the outset that I am not a member of the crypto-Democrats masquerading as Republicans or conservatives under the banner of #NeverTrump.
While I often agree with the likes of Erick Erickson and Jim Geraghty, their rationale for withholding support for a potential Trump nominee defies all logic and reason.
In effect, abstaining from a presidential election provides tacit assistance to the ultra-radicalized Democrat Party. Their inaction might help move a pantsuited crime boss or a Marxist kook to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The cries of the Crypto-Democrats revolve around several dubious claims:
Trump failed at a bunch of businesses: Eh, what entrepreneur hasn't failed? And what of Trump's business successes? How many businesses has Hillary Cinton built? What does Bernie Sanders know about running a business? Let's put it this way: Donald Trump knows more about the real world than 1,000 Hillary Clintons or 50,000 Bernie Sanders.
Trump flip-flopped on immigration: Yes, but we know that Trump isn't an open borders nut like every member of the Democrat Party and the entire GOP establishment. Trump built his presidential campaign on enforcing immigration laws, securing the border, and protecting the domestic economy. Suffice it to say that it's certain Trump would be infinitely better than any Democrat, living or dead, on protecting American sovereignty.
Trump's a nativist, racist and/or a polarizing figure: Only if every country on the planet is nativist and racist, because every country on the planet protects its borders better than the United States. The average American knows inherently that allowing millions of poorly educated, unvetted, and potentially dangerous aliens to enter the country is a recipe for disaster. Trump's position is the position of the typical American and diametrically opposed to the Beltway traitors who view checks from K Street and the Chamber of Commerce as a license to kill the Republic.
With all that said, there is only one reliable choice for President of these United States. And that man is Senator Ted Cruz. From memorizing the Constitution at age 12 to arguing -- and winning -- some of the most important pro-liberty cases ever heard before the Supreme Court, Cruz is a Constitutional Conservative.
He is also the rare breed who honored his commitment to his constituents and fought tooth and nail to defund Obamacare, kill taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, and stop Barack Obama's illegal executive actions on immigration.
When he was deceived by his own majority leader, he called that man out on the Senate floor. He's not popular in the Senate, but he's extraordinarily popular in his home state, because he honored his word.
What other candidate has had the cojones to keep his promises?
What other candidate has never wavered in fighting the radicalized leftists who control the Democrat Party?
Ted Cruz is a rock solid conservative who will do what he says he will do.
Of that, you can be certain.
We don't know what kind of "flexibility" Donald Trump will demonstrate if he attains the nation's highest office. Earlier this week, Mr. Trump shifted his position on H-1B visas twice in a matter of hours.
No, Mr. Trump will not build a wall. He won't be as tough on illegal immigration as he claimed at the outset of his campaign. His positions on his hallmark issues are shifting daily and should worry the most fervent of his backers.
Conversely, we do know -- without a shadow of a doubt -- that Ted Cruz is inflexible when it comes to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. He reveres our nation's founding documents and they serve as his guiding light for governance.
That is why I urge you to support Ted Cruz for President.
We have a once in a generation opportunity to nominate a Constitutionalist.
The hour is late. The time is now.
