I voted for Schwarzenegger and felt good about it because:
A. He seemed to love America and was grateful for the opportunities it provided.
B. He was smart enough and had the discipline to take advantage of those opportunities, first by rising to the top of the bodybuilding world then unexpectedly parlaying that into the top movie box office star of his time, a feat no one could have anticipated. The guy had a mind for business, and he had a great product to promote.
His Waterloo was going up against the Democrat state unions with several ballet measures that lost. After that, the fire left him and he decided he’d rather be loved and feted as a celebrity than remain a principled Republican slogging it out with the opposition.
Can the same happen to Trump? Sure. But don’t think it can’t happen to any of the other candidates. I’ll vote either Cruz or Trump.
But I’m one more lie away from letting it all burn.
