No kidding. One of the most disheartening things about the Trump candidacy has been to watch Trump supporters denounce long time conservatives after they warned that Trump is not one of us. Regardless of who the person was they’ve been savaged for not being faithful to the new faith of conservatism as preached by the TV reality star turned populist “conservative.” Many of those denounced have been conservatives going back before Ronald Reagan was President.
Failure to understand Trump’s appeal to great swaths of Americans demonstrates obedience to PC elitism. Not all conservatives are free from PC influence.
Here’s a simple statistical truth.
It’s come down to Trump and Cruz.
If Cruz wins the nomination he’ll need Trump supporters to win the general election. If Trump wins the nomination he’ll need Cruz supporters to win the general election.
Having loyal and committed, and vocal, supporters during a contested nomination process is critically important. It’s how candidates prove they can inspire and mobilize people, and how they are properly vetted (before the Dems and MSM really get hold of them)
But people need to keep sight of the fact that there will be an eventual nominee, and that person will be MAGNITUDES better than whoever the Dems put up. It makes no sense for supporters of either of these candidates to go blowing up bridges that can’t be quickly rebuilt.

The people who support Trump are realists and educated ones at that. You have not seen the Conservative alive to campaign today that will make abortion illegal, repeal LGBT rights, reverse gay marriage, or any of the things that Conservatives say they “stand for.” Those things aren’t going to be addressed with any effectiveness until Our Lord returns. So what, may I ask, is it that you expect your “Conservative” candidate to do for us if he’s elected?
America is in trouble right now and we need a leader who can address some of the problems right now. Trump is that man. If this was the America of fifty years ago, we would have all the time in the world for Conservatives, Moderates and Liberals to sit in the Halls of Congress and thrash out solutions and argue the pros and cons. We simply don’t have that time anymore as a nation.
Sometimes I think a lot of Conservatives have hopelessly entertwined their politics with their religion. Only Our Lord Jesus Christ can heal the soul of Americans from the things we’ve allowed to come upon us in a moral sense. No politician ever will. Meanwhile, Donald Trump has the know how to remedy our failing manufacturing industry, address the problems of our open borders and our image in the world at large. I don’t ask my doctor, my dentist, or my optometrist if they’re Christians or if they’re Conservatives before I let them perform their service for me. I only care to know if they are qualified to do their jobs to my satisfaction. I’ve always chosen my elected officials the same way. Right now, my way of life is in danger, not my faith. I think Donald Trump can salvage America and that’s why I support him. It’s my country that’s in danger, not my soul.
