When BOTH Parties are Afraid of You…

When BOTH Parties are Afraid of You…

When BOTH viable sides of the political race for the office of President talk bad about you, that’s when I believe Conservatives may have found the one, the right candidate to become the next President of the United States of America.

The Republicans AND the Democrats are afraid of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump; they call them *crazy*, they call them *loose cannons*, they call them a few other things that just don’t need to be printed at this time, but the truth of the matter is this, Trump and Cruz have BOTH SIDES of the REAL race crapping in their bloomers right now.

I am not going to make ANY excuses; I have been pretty impressed with Donald J. Trump; he is a plain speaker, he is not afraid to say exactly what’s on his mind and it appears that he doesn’t really give a damn if you like it or not.

Donald Trump is a very BLUNT individual. I admire and respect Trump for that bluntness, but I am not a rank and file Republican, I am a Conservative that has had all I can stand of BOTH Parties and their GUTLESSNESS.

Sadly, there are far too many in the Republican Party that have no use for the truth, it leaves a bitter taste in their mouths, much the same as it does to Democrats, and therein lies the problem, there isn’t a hairs breadth of difference between the Democrats and the Republicans today.

Now let me get to the heart of the matter and the reason for this post; I am rapidly becoming convinced that Donald Trump, for all of his brash, devil may care attitude, doesn’t have a snowballs chance in hell of gaining the nomination for President on the Republican side of the ticket. 

I believe that by not doing so Trump will run as a 3rd Party candidate, thus splitting the ticket and handing the Democrats an easy win, regardless of the garbage they run as a candidate, be it Clinton, Biden or Sanders, I believe Trump can and will hurt the GOP so badly that no matter who the Dems nominate, they WILL be the winner.

At this time I simply don’t know how we do it, but I feel that Trump must NOT become the GOP candidate POTUS, I am favoring Ted Cruz more every day, and I believe that Trump needs to be convinced to back Cruz, become a friend, mentor, adviser and a supporter.

It seems to me that ALL mainstream media has made their minds up, Jeb Bush is going to be the GOP candidate and personally, I believe that would be a total disaster, one that would also hand the Democrats an easy victory.

I am NOT against a 3rd Party but NOW is not the time, it’s too late in this political cycle to make anything good come from it, and my long time readers know; I have advocated a 3rd Party for the last 3 cycles, all of that effort has been for naught, but hopefully, the rank and file GOP voters will pull their heads out of the sand and force the GOP/RNC to nominate a man that can and will do great things for this nation, and at this point of the game I am solidly in favor of my Senator from Texas, TED CRUZ.

    Well said Fred!

  2. One Citizen Speaking says:

    The proof …

    On Wednesday, Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner was speaking at a fundraiser in Colorado and apparently feeling salty as he told the donors and guests that Senator Ted Cruz is a “jackass.” Which is, in terms of the base and the activists and the primary voters, practically an endorsement.

    In fact, he didn’t merely call Cruz a jackass; according to the Daily Caller, Boehner said that he was happy that the presidential campaign keeps “that jackass” out of Washington!

    Establishment poster-boy John Boehner literally just said that the establishment wants to keep Ted Cruz out of Washington.

    If there is a stronger endorsement out there about Ted Cruz’s entire message, his very raison d’être, it has not been found and made public. There is little doubt that this can be used to great fundraising effect by the Cruz campaign. The copy writes itself: “If the Republican establishment doesn’t want Ted Cruz in Washington, shouldn’t you?”

    Couldn’t be easier. Perhaps in a few weeks the campaign will release numbers from a Boehner bump. There’s bound to be one.

    Fred, I can’t remember everything that was said about Ronald Reagan but I was a supporter and did vote for him. I do remember that there were a lot of criticisims and he handled all of them with the ability to turn the tables on his detractors. I was a thirty something conservative then and I can’t remember being anything but a conservative. My idea of economic equality is you keep what you earn and I’ll keep what I earn. If everyone paid a few cents per dollar for anything they bought, excluding food, then maybe the fact that we all had an equal share in supporting our country, the entitlement mentality would slowly become a distant memory. I too like Ted but the idea of a third party at this point in time is an exciting one. If not now, when?

    • TexasFred says:

      I have been trying to stir up some excitement for a 3rd Party for going on 16 years now, so I don’t know *when*, but I know this; this close to the election would be a piss poor time to start and far too many in the GOP will crap all over the idea, thus splitting the GOP and giving the Dems a waltz into the White House… Of that I am certain…

  4. Texasperated says:

    The common wisdom of the past has been that 3rd party runs hurt the GOP. I actually think that was true twice in history — when T. Roosevelt ran 3rd party and Wilson was elected and again when Perot ran 3rd party and Clinton was elected. The best that can be said of other third party runs (Wallace in ’68, Thurmond in ’48, etc) is that they didn’t really affect the outcome at all.

    Trump may run 3rd Party. If he does, that 3rd party will last as long as the Bullmoose, Dixiecrat, and Reform parties. I make that prediction based on the fact that there is not a cohesive principle guiding Trump’s followers. In fact, if some of his followers were to vote strictly on the issues they believe, they would not support Trump at all.

    This is, IMO, a personality following (no, I won’t use the “C” word) that has tapped into some deep seated anger against the establishment. Yeah, so did the Dixiecrat and Reform folks. But once you remove Strom Thurmond, Ross Perot, or even Teddy Roosevelt from the mix you end up with no “there” there. If Trump were to run as a 3rd party candidate, whatever party he runs on would go the same way of Wallace’s “American Party.”

    I supported Cruz against Dewhurst; Cruz against Sadler; and will support him if he is still in the race next March and November. I think he is a genuine conservative with the credentials to prove it. He’s not “late to the race” on immigration. I know Trump claims that nobody was talking about immigration before he was — and that is simply not true. Cruz has a longstanding record of opposing illegal immigration and wanting to strengthen border security.

    Keep your powder dry

      Not a cohesive principle guiding Trump’s followers

      Sounds like a TEA Party we BOTH used to support, or tried to until they showed their asses like they did…

  5. dekare says:

    Now, what if Cruz gets the nomination, can he name Trump as his running mate? I would think that would slide The Donald into the acceptance of the GOP, and could set him up for a real win in the future.


    • Texasperated says:

      I think the question would be whether Trump’s ego could allow him to be Veep.

      Keep your powder dry

      • TexasFred says:

        Exactly… Trump won’t take 2nd seat.. And the future for Trump is what you see now… He is a wild card and as he ages he’s going to become even more so… What’s he got to lose?

  6. dekare says:

    Fred, is there any way that Trump can ingratiate himself into the hearts of the GOP? Is there anyway the GOP can get it in their heads that if they give us jeb, this will cause a large portion of GOP voters to go 3rd party if Trump goes that way. I know I will and consequences be damned.

    I will NOT be force fed a candidate I do NOT believe in. If I have to, I will vote 3rd party, and if it hands the dems another win, so be it. I withstood obama, I can take another 4 years. I would rather live under a dem regime for another election cycle than let the GOP think they can tell me what I am supposed to do. The GOP MUST learn that they serve us…and not the other way around. And if they want the whitehouse, they better start listening to us.

    Here is how I stand now. Jeb as the GOP and Trump as 3rd party, I vote Trump. Cruz as the GOP and Trump 3rd party, I vote Cruz.

    I have really liked Cruz from years ago, well before Trump entered the game. I will say that I do not like it when Cruz gets into politician mode (as he did when he refused to answer the latest immigration question on illegal parents, but legal kids). Whereas Trump said in plain language, hard choices must me made, but America comes first. Cruz could NOT say that. He could not say something that might offend someone, and that made me lose favor with him.

    I don’t know, maybe we still need a political PC GOP candidate like Cruz, that has a blush of DC mentality, as opposed to the fireball Trump. Baby steps I guess.

    I like Trump’s no nonsense, and the fact that both parties hate him. I would LIKE to see him in the whitehouse. Good or bad, it would be interesting, and I do believe he can do what he says. He has an ego the size of Texas, well, damn it, I liked America when we had an big ass ego. We nuked japan, and told the world we’re the new sheriff in town. We said jump and other countries asked how high. We were the shit. We lost that. Why? I don’t want my country “liked”, I want it respected, and maybe a little feared. Most of all, I don’t want any other country to think it can screw with us anymore. When we ran things, we were safer, the world was safer, and life was good. I want that back.

    • Texasperated says:

      I’m not sure Cruz refused to answer Kelly’s question. I agree he did not answer it to her satisfaction. The fact is, until the border is secured and something is done to implement the policy that Cruz set forth, the rest is all daydreams from some unknown future.

      But I noticed what Cruz did not do. He did not pitch a fit and accuse Kelly of being in the hands of the establishment or make other baseless accusations about blood coming from her eyes and her wherever. He handled himself, in other words, like a gentleman rather than a New Yawker.

      Keep your powder dry

      • TexasFred says:

        Yep, Cruz apparently has one thing Trump is very short on… Class…

        • deborah wilson says:

          lol, Fred!

          However, maybe a ‘little’ lack of class is exactly what America needs right now - lest we destroy ourselves with political correctness. People, including Trump, are just fed up with all of the nonsense.

      • Wayne says:

        Ted accused Megan of asking a typical liberal question the other night. Fox news changed after the Saudi prince bought in.

  7. TomR,armed in Texas says:

    I am riding with Trump until our primary in March. If he stumbles badly then I will go with Cruz. I have little use for the others except on single issues. None impress miss completely.

    I ride with Trump because he is an outsider shaking up the establishment which is basically one party with two titles. Dem and Repub.

    Trump expresses what we have needed to hear since 1988 when Reagan left office and no one worth a shit held the office since Reagan. If nothing else I am delighted to hear Trump attack political correctness and establishment cronyism.

    Keep it up Donald. They are running in frightened circles.

  8. BobF says:

    One thing we cannot forget and that’s SCOTUS. Obama appointed two lackeys and we can only imagine the masterpieces of depravity Hillary would appoint if she were elected.

    • TomR,armed in Texas says:

      I worry now that fate may deliver one or two more appointments to obama before he is replaced.

  9. deborah wilson says:

    I, too, have been hoping for a third party. As the situation stands right now, people are afraid to vote third party. There’s a reason for this: for decades, both the Dems and the Repubs have brainwashed the American voter into believing that we have no other choice. Why? Because it is my belief that this *myth* serves to ensure that whether one votes Dem or Repub, Washington will get its man [or woman] of choice - because it is apparent that both parties are really just the same monster.

    It was never intended for this country to end up this way, politically. George Washington warned us of the dangers of political parties, geographical/regional discrimination, and entanglements with foreign countries. It looks like his words were forgotten as soon as he wrote them.

    I’m not aware of any laws against voting third party. I think it is time for the American voter to really consider whether they want to continue supporting the two dominating parties, that are for the most part, selling us out and taking our nation down a wrong and dangerous path. To keep accepting them and voting for them is in effect saying that you approve of their character, actions [or in-actions] and policies.

    I’m not going to do it anymore. I don’t approve. I don’t like them. Plain and simple.

    The only ones that I would consider voting for is Trump and Cruz - perhaps Hucklebee. Hopefully one of them will get the GOP nomination and American voters won’t have to party hop. But there will be a problem for the Repubs if Cruz gets the nomination and Trump goes third party. Because I really believe many Repubs will go third party for Trump.

    Americans are fed up to the max. They want someone with backbone, who isn’t afraid to lay the cards on the table. We are to the point where nothing less is acceptable.

    Look at the shape our country is in; we are falling apart bit by bit. All of our morals and respect [not to mention self-respect] has went down the toilet. Our kids are being dumbed down to the extent they don’t even know what the 4th of July is about! Half of America doesn’t care about anything anymore except their smart phones, their x-boxes, Hollywood, protesting, fighting the cops, beating up each other, shooting each other, ie…wanting a race war - or civil war, it doesn’t matter to them…the situation stinks.

    Maybe it’s time that the 50% of Americans who do care, take a little time to really think things through, and then vote for the man they think is the best one to serve in the White House, regardless of party.

    I feel this is our last chance - we have to chose wisely - if we don’t get it right, all hell is going to break loose, very soon.

    I’m going to pray that we all are led in wisdom by God.

  10. TexasFred says:

    If Trump is the nominee I will support him 100% but what scares me is that if he doesn’t get the nomination he suddenly runs like a wild(er) man as a 3rd Party candidate, and if Cruz isn’t the GOP nominee, if it were Jeb Bush, I’d still support Trump even though his run would likely give us whoever the Democrat is… I am NOT going to hold my nose and vote for some dumb SOB like Jeb Bush, I’ll support a 3rd Party instead, but I KNOW what the 3rd Party will do…

    And it ain’t a gonna be purty… 🙁

    • Wayne says:

      I’m with you Fred. Jeb, Hillary……… same, same.

      • dekare says:

        I will NOT hand the GOP a win if they push jeb. I will NOT reward a party that claims to represent me, but does what THEY want, and not what I WANT.

        The GOP must learn that it NEEDS to listen to We The People. The people that pull the GOP lever during voting time. And if they refuse, they will NEVER see the inside of the whitehouse.

        The GOP will come around to US, or it will DIE a slow death. And I will put a DEM in the whitehouse in order to show the GOP I mean it. I AM THAT PISSED. The GOP NEEDS US, WE DO NOT NEED THEM. They better learn that damn quick.

  11. Shana Sosa says:

    I was saying about a month ago, my secrect hope is that Trump continues to spout the unfiltered truth. Bring attention to the things that people don’t want to talk about, in his brash way, that has people responding, talking, caring, agreeing with.
    Then drop out and put all his might behind Cruz.

  12. Ron Stabb says:

    No worry here. I see Trump as the Republican nominee and Cruz as VP. hilLiary will be in jail and Sanders doesn’t stand a chance.
