I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day holiday weekend, and take some time to reflect on the choice we face in November.
We had a contest and, regardless of tactics, Cruz lost to Trump. I like Cruz. I think he’s a great voice and champion for the conservative cause, and for the Constitution. But he lost.
There is no way (absolutely NO way) I would support Hillary under any circumstances whatsoever, regardless of her opponent. She’s Obama without the charm. Obama without the scruples. When slick-Willie occupied the WH, and he had the angel on one-shoulder, she was the devil on the other. Many of the most under-handed, despicable acts conducted during Bill’s time in office were her doing - beginning to end. Her legacy goes back to (and before) being FIRED by her own Dem friends for misconduct in pursuing Nixon in the Watergate matter. She is a BAD person - unfit for the Presidency. Having barely survived the Obama reign, Pres. Hillary would do damage that would take a generation or 2 to unwind (USSC). It would be my grand-children’s generation that would have to fix things. And that might be too late.
Trump certainly is a loose cannon. But if he can accomplish 1/10th of what he proposes regarding immigration, trade, corporate and personal taxation, military & defense, stepped up protection against radical Islam, and criteria for selection of Supreme Court nominee’s, he’ll be more effective than any Republican since Reagan, and a good (if not great) President. Plus, I have no doubt that he will call out the entrenched establishment types that obstruct progress. I also think he doesn’t care about a second term so much that he’ll pull his punches. We’ve all seen his tone and tenor - he has no filter, and that could actually be a refreshing change - God knows we need real change.
What I really think he’s about is that he’s a (very) rich guy that played the game to get where he is. He contributed politically to whomever was in power to get (buy) influence. And it worked. That’s the way it works. But I also think he’s looking at the twilight of his life and realizing that’s not as it should be. He’s seeking some sort of redemption - for his children and children’s children, and for the USA.
When I tune in this Friday (for Ray Charles Friday - one of my favorite show themes) I’m hoping for a more pragmatic Mark Levin. One not fighting yesterday’s battles, but tomorrow’s war.
Be well Mark.
