Ted Cruz: Give Up, Just Give Up!

Written by

Senator Cruz, it's time for you to give up your 2016 election! Three main reasons:

  1. You are an Obama rerun!
  2. Are you the establishment candidate or not?
  3. You are Rick Santorum 2012!

Let me elaborate on each ...

1. You are an Obama rerun!

Like Senator Obama, you are a first-term U.S. Senator without any major accomplishments, but are simply trying to talk your way into the White House, with your glib tongue!

You must accomplish a lot more in steps before running for the Presidency (again)! Specifically, how about becoming a Governor like John Kasich or a billionaire like Donald Trump? Understandably, these two examples are tall orders. So you may want to start modestly - How about trying to run a candy shop to gain some valuable executive experiences?

It's widely known that you are not a big fan of President Obama. But do not under-estimate his former job as a community organizer! He learned how to speak with the regular folks very well, unlike you who sounds like a lawyer all the time!

2. Are you the establishment candidate or not?

As a rookie Senator, you have built your U.S. Senate career on an anti-Washington platform (Ted Cruz calls Mitch McConnell a liar on the Senate Floor). But now you are the GOP establishment candidate. Huh - Is it a joke?

The simple truth is that you are more like them, the campaign donation-grubbing career politicians, than is Donald Trump. So the establishment has settled on you, for now, as "the lesser of two evils", given the hopelessness of Governor Kasich's campaign.

3. You are Rick Santorum 2012!

You have been following in the footsteps of Rick Santorum 2012, with absolutely no chance nationally! Why not? There are simply not enough conservatives left in America to power the GOP to the Presidency!

Speaking of the conservatives ...

Having suggested carpet-bombing ISIS, you are no longer a true conservative! For more, read: Fixing the Military-Industrial Complex!

4. Discussion

Too bad, Senator Cruz, you are running against Donald Trump!

Trump has been running a completely unorthodox campaign with extraordinary results. For example, Trump has, so far, two million votes more than you do! More importantly, Trump is much better positioned than you to win the general election, because he appeals to many independents and Democrats, with many more to jump on the Trump train in the coming months!

Now, if you think you can somehow become the GOP nominee via the brokered convention, think again!

In an extremely unlikely case, if you do become the GOP nominee after the GOP convention, it would be a hollow victory for the GOP! Why? Because it would disenfranchise most of Trump’s supporters, thus assuring another Democratic President!

Finally, stop fooling around as a Constitutionalist! You are running on the Constitution because you have nothing else to offer! In other words, you are nostalgic about the past, you are unhappy about the present, and you have no idea about the future! So what do you do? You wave the Constitution, often without even knowing that the word democracy never appeared in the Constitution!

For the most accurate diagnosis for America as well as the best solution, read:

  2. Solution for America (Version 3).

5. Closing

Senator Cruz, please give up, just give up, on your 2016 gambit, for the sake of the GOP as well as America!
