The Republican Party was born in 1854.  It died officially in Cleveland in 2016.

The GOP had officially been on life support for a while.  The end came quickly.  On Wednesday night, the Republican Party booed the Constitution.  Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the voice of conservatism, told the Republicans to vote their conscience and to vote for someone who would defend the Constitution.

He was booed.

Four years ago, such a speech would have gotten a standing ovation from the Republican convention.  Four years ago, the Democrats booed God and the Republicans had a field day with it.

Now the GOP, led by Donald Trump, has booed the Constitution.

If anything, that was the opening for Trump’s acceptance speech.

His speech stood in sharp contrast to Ted Cruz’s speech.  Cruz talked about the principles of freedom and liberty and never mentioned himself. Trump’s speech was all about Trump.  “I will” he said time and time again. The only thing he did not promise was he did not say, “I will stop the rising of the oceans.”

Trump promised to restore law and order. He promised to make America rich again. Those are noble goals but what is Trump going to do?  More importantly, how is he going to do it.

The tragic answer here is that like Obama, the Constitution seems to mean nothing to Trump and he appears to give it even less lip service than Obama does.

For conservatives in the Republican Party, the end has come. The Party is splitting because of Donald Trump. Perhaps the Party could have survived a little while longer if Trump wanted to make an effort at unity.

He doesn’t.

He wants to crush anyone who disagrees with him and that means conservatives no longer have a home in the GOP.

    why is it some stated how much the hated the things Obama said and did…then when trump says them its OK????? the list is long on trump and obama/hilary have the same platform based on what he says
    I cant believe its cause trump claims to be a republican…so that only leaves race..

    I truly believe now that most of who call themselves tea party are in fact racist…

    the tea party is officially dead!!!

    1. jtins

      “Same platform” ??? Trumps platform is more like Ted’s than any other candidate – republican or democrat. Some say he took Ted’s issues and presented them as his own while Ted was trying to be politically correct and evangelical.

  2. Larry Wallenmeyer

    This is truly sad.
    It is not merely the death of The Republican Party, but because The G.O.P. with it’s (once) strong Christian, Constitutionalists and Conservative base and influence was the only thing keeping The Democrat Party from swiftly marching America into Marxism. Instead because the G.O.P. has since 1913 been only fighting back in fits and starts all we’ve managed to do is slow the descent into Marxism. Now with the G.O.P. being a clone of the Democrat Party America has lost her “brake” and her “steering wheel”…without the once strong influence of Christians, Constitutionalists, and Conservatives there is nothing to stop nor steer away from the “cliff” of Marxism. I have studied history, Bible history and secular history…every people and nation that does what America is doing dies and goes into judgment…including Israel. America is not any better than those nations.
    1913- began saying no to The Constitution. Federal Reserve, IRS, Income Tax.
    1930’s- FDR “New Deal”/Marxist programs to “save” America.
    1962- America BANS GOD from public schools and public buildings.
    1972- America legalises the MURDER OF BABIES.
    1990’s- Bill Clinton sales, or lets get stolen, nuclear bomb, missile, rocket and guidance system technologies to the Chinese and N. Korea.
    Present- ObaMarxist with all his Executive Orders, promoting of the Sodomite agenda, attacks on the 2nd Amendment, flooding America with Muslims and Illegals, and, of course, ObaMarxist “Care”….and now the G.O.P. will NOT even let their own delegates VOTE THEIR CONSCIENCE…they are FORCING a New York Socialist on us…it’s not just the Republican Party…it’s America that is dead.
    From Woodrow Wilson to Herbert Hoover to FDR to Truman to JFK to LBJ to Nixon to Ford to Carter to Clinton to ObaMarxist…now, either Hitlary or El Trampo…yep, America is dead. Luke 21:20-28 warns AND ENCOURAGES:
    Luke 21:20-28 King James Version (KJV)

    20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

    21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

    22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

    23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.

    24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

    25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

    26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

    27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

    28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

    Pay special attention to verses 20 and 28.

    -Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer.

  3. Agi Yaeger

    Trump’s speech was the most pessimistic given by a nominee ever. According to him everything is terrible. He promised to save us all by doing everything himself without even making the government smaller. He will expand all government programs so everyone will have equal share.
    That is not how the republican party solved these problems. This is not the republican party anymore.
    Compare that to Cruz’s speech. Now there was an acceptance speech, I would have cheered. Judson, you are correct in that the republican party died officially on July 21,2016.
    For Ted Cruz, it’s not about teams. It’s not about red shirts versus blue shirts, it’s about following the Constitution of the United States and protecting freedom. In fact, in his speech, Cruz said the answer to our troubles is a return to the freedoms outlined in the Constitution:
    Freedom means recognizing that our Constitution allows states to choose policies that reflect local values. Colorado might decide something different than Texas, New York different than Iowa. That’s the way it’s supposed to be — diversity. If not, what’s the point of having states to begin with?
    That should be the platform for our new Conservative Party, not yet born. But I am convinced it will be born out of the ashes of the old Whig and Republican Parties, with its modern day George Washington in Ted Cruz in 2020.

  4. Kenny Sono

    NNNNNNNnnnnnnnnO!
    This is my view:
    Ted Cruz showed up and gave a speech. Nobody really cared, but it was fascinating that he came at all. He brought is academic vengeance strategy with him and covered it with lots of flowery rhetoric and tried to hide what he was really there for: Revenge.
    The crowd (actually a fairly small part of it) booed at him for NOT saying anything to unite the party around Trump. That is the end of THAT.
    Now, as for Trump and his efforts to unite the party and prepare to win the White House and start with his agenda / what they’re calling the Populist agenda?
    I think it’s “all good” in terms of all the things he promised he would do. I didn’t hear anything I can say is clearly NOT what I want him to do. Even the TPP agreement is so complex, I honestly have no idea who is right on that.
    So, if you really listened to what Trump said, there was nothing in that speech to suggest he doesn’t care about conservatism or freedom or the constitution or any of the things mentioned below. So / what? You all seem to think that Trump going after the “common man” vote has to also include lots of emphasis on Tea Party specific talking points? I disagree. I think he’s just interested in running the country like a business and will march down the field like a Superbowl quarterback to accomplish those things. None of the things he mentioned are objectionable. He doesn’t have to show me (us) his play book (it’s probably barely sketched out anyway). He just has to prevent Hillary the catastrophe from getting anywhere; that’s about it. If you really want to blame somebody for all this mess / blame the American people: They are the people who voted for Trump / not Cruz. It’s not what I did, but now that we as a country have spilled all this milk, let’s roll up our sleeves and clean it up. Having Trump HELP is a good approach. Whining until the whole roll of paper towels is gone is probably just obnoxious.

    1. Agi Yaeger

      Yes Kenny, I listened to Trump’s speech. He is going to do everything by himself, “me, myself and I.” Conservatives view that as no differently than any progressive mantra.
      A true conservative who believes in the constitution knows that it is we, the people, who will be doing the changes in our society and to bring back America to it’s original state, not the POTUS. His only job is to support us by providing security, prosperity and the pursuit of happiness. That is what his role is to be according to our constitution, but then he knows very little about that document. He proved that time and time again.
      One of the darkest statements Trump made in his speech is that HE, the Messiah (my interpretation) will be the law and order president. Really?? Whose laws and whose orders is he referring to his own? Because he implied that and not the rule of law as the framers of our Constitution envisioned.
      How did I surmised that? Trump mentioned the constitution ONLY once in his hour and an half speech, no mention of creating small governments, doing away with any wasteful departments or reducing spending or any other conservative principles.
      He stated that he will give every citizen what they need but not necessarily what they deserve. That statement is a socialist doctrine. No wonder he is enamored by Bernie Sander’s principles.
      Sorry, Kenny, his speech was as progressive as all the establishment and RINO’s rhetoric. I don’t have to list them all, because you know who they are.
      Once again Trump tapped into fear displayed by the masses and spoke like a true FDR-“you have nothing to fear, but fear itself” add to that his dictatorial ways of fixing America. No thanks, Kenny!

      1. Kenny Sono

        Agi, for somebody as OBVIOUSLY smart as you, it is apparent that you (like most of the others here) are missing a phenomenally important point:
        IF (and only IF) you give Trump the benefit of the doubt that he will at least TRY to accomplish most of things he says…… it is really not very critical HOW he plans to do it. In fact, I would generally go further to say that the way(s) he plans to accomplish most of those things is the ONLY WAY they can be achieved.
        I hate to do this, but here goes:
        IF he really will try to lower taxes and make it easier for all Americans to file their taxes every year. . . what does that mean? Anyone? Anyone? Beuhler?
        OK, that actually MUST mean he plans to significantly change the tax code and shrink the IRS. HOW will he do that? Um mm….let’s see? Get the Congress to pass a bill and send it to him? UH, YEAHHHhh…. I guess SO!
        IF he really will enforce the rule of law…..what does that mean? Does that mean that people like Hillary and other clear corrupt Democrats and their supporters in the government will become irrelevant and/or fired? Of COURSE it does. Oh, you want a list of them and how he plans to go about that? SURE.
        Keep going with that.
        Finally, when he says “I WILL” this is simply directly tied to him being a guy with a huge ego combined with a lack of political (lying) background. He simply wants to get elected and is pointing out that HILLARY WON’T but “I WILL.” That’s OK though Agi, you stay home. Most of us will do the right thing and go vote for this turkey, hoping to prevent things like another 60 Million babies from being murdered in the next decade or two under Feminist Chairman Hillary’s REIGN.

        1. Agi Yaeger

          Kenny, I really tried to give him a fair chance. However, when he makes a sharp turn away from logic, I can’t help wonder motivates him.After his victory speech, he should have gone straight to gathering his staff and begin the process of getting a great transitional team.
          But no! He began making a mountain out of a molehill. His vengence and hatred shown again against the grassroots. It’s not just Cruz now, but mild mannered Kasich.
          The scenario looks more and more like ” one flew over the cuckoo’s nest”.
          It has been proven that Cruz’s intention was only to make sure that conservatives are not forgotten. Besides, “voting your conscience” is not evil, is it Kenny.
          But what Trump read into it is the disturbing warning signs.
          In case you are not reading both sides of the story, here is something to ponder on, if you really have an open mind.

          Trump cannot fight Hillary really dirty, after all he is her fall guy paid to destroy grassroots republicans. I wonder what good and beautiful deal they made when the Donald met with Billy boy? The biggest fools are his followers.
          He is pummeling Cruz to destroy him so he won’t even have a chance in 2020. He and she MUST destroy conservatism!!!!! Get it America? I doubt it.
          http://theresurgent.com/forget-the-general-electiontrump-prefers-fighting-ted-cruz/

          Just remember Trump never paid this much money to go after a democrat. The evidence is there. He is subliminally brainwashing the masses against anyone including Cruz and Kasich who dare to oppose him and who are grassroots.

          Who will you blame when he destroys what’s left of America? You, now, own this! It’s irrational.

      2. Dahl

        Look at the list that Donald Trump provided on his supreme court choices. That certainly doesn’t look like a list of unconstitutional left wingers to me! Advocating the building of a wall to prevent the immigrants from polluting our society is not progressive? Does the NRA endorse progressives? Is calling for law and order and supporting police and the military progressive? Remember, Donald Trump is a business man not a politician. He will lead the country as a common sense CEO and set direction, not write any laws. Writing constitutional laws is the job of the house and senate. Defining the laws is the job of the supreme court. The president only signs or vetoes laws. What are the cynics like Judson so worried about?????

    2. Diane Sicca

      I will begin by saying I agree with Kenny. I have been watching politics since the early 60’s. I grew up in a neighboring town to Trump. I have a totally different view of Trump and his victory. Maybe this because we are close in age and grew up in NY. Before I tell my brief story I must confess I believe God has chosen this man. If he does get elected I will find out if I am right. That said , my faith is so strong that I don’t believe God would allow Hillary into the WH. God doesn’t tolerate evil people for too long. If she does win we will be heading into the end times. Forget the Republican Party ……….America is finished. Now my brief story. I was a registered Democrat in Queens for 24 years. I was advised to do that in case I ever needed help. ( that was a red flag ) I went to all monthly meetings. I NEVER EVER VOTED FOR A DEMOCRAT. Over the years I found all the corruption there was. No time to go into it all.
      Mario Cuomo , his son Andrew, Chuck Schumer and the many Mayors. I do know that the Republicans were not perfect. I have lived on LI since 1995 and I still haven’t changed my vote. I had to wait 6 yrs to get rid of my CD1 Congressman. Corrupt as can be. In 2011 I was hoping Trump would enter the race in 2012. I had given up expecting anything from the Republicans. The night Obamacare was passed I cried. I was talking to Ben Franklin
      not really but it helps me. I prayed a lot and I just knew we weren’t ready. God had a purpose. In 2012 I was disappointed again. First McCain then Romney, were they kidding? OK fast forward 17 people trying for the nomination. We could do that. God always has to be the one
      and it has to be seen as a Miracle. 2015 came and I hoped. My friends gave me flack and
      I wouldn’t change my mind. I seriously and honestly didn’t think any of the 16 could do what Trump could. Lord knows he has his faults but fixing what is broken is his specialty. He has the money and can do whatever is necessary, he has a wonderful family, bottom line he has everything one needs and I feel in my heart whatever he has to do will be one. I don’t expect anyone to change their mind I just want to tell you I’m one person who has complete trust in Trump and I hope you get the chance to see I’m right. God Bless the USA

      1. Larry Self

        Many Americans feel the same in their hearts as you Diane. Trump is now the only one who can beat Hillary. He and Mike Pence need our prayers and support. Anything else is joining in a win for Hillary.

    3. Larry Wallenmeyer

      Kenny, you have it 100% backwards.
      Ted Cruz Cares. Cruz Is a Christian. Cruz is a Constitutionalist. Cruz is a REAL, LIFE-LONG Conservative. Ted Cruz REALLY Cares.

  6. Darrelll Smith

    You sir are no better than the other media who slant things for their own benefit or view.
    The Republican did not boo the constitution. It, along with millions watching, booed a selfish, petty, man who put his petty peeves above the best interests of the American people!
    I voted for and have in the past supported Ted but he showed his true colors when he broke his word by not supporting the republican candidate for president.
    Cruz in effect gave permission for people to vote Hillary, who if elected will put this nation beyond salvation.
    TED CRUZ IS THE LIAR HE WAS CALLED- LYING TED -DISLOYAL TED- SELFISH TED-
    It was a great speech- BUT was not intended to help Trump only to further Ted’s self interest.
    I will NEVER support Ted- AND IF YOUR MESSAGE REPRESENTS THE THINKING OF THE TEA PARTY THEN I WILL DISAVOW ANY ALLEGIANCE TO THE TEA PARTY OR ANY GROUP WHO PUTS PERSONAL INTERESTS ABOVE THAT OF OUR NATION.
    SHAME ON TED- AND SHAME ON YOU SIR FOR DISTORTING THE FACTS.

    1. Agi Yaeger

      So far the four of you have not answered these two questions to make me understand Trump’s intent. I don’t need a dissertation, an autobiography, just a simple honest response to only two questions.
      Why is Trump trying to eviscerate Cruz after he won the nomination, instead of his real opponent, Hillary Clinton? Thus far his attacks on her have been milquetoast.
      Why is he considering Cruz as his real opponent and not Hillary?
      IMHO she is not his opponent.

      1. MUG

        Agi, Trump does not see Hillary as his real enemy. If he loses to Hillary, he personally loses little more than some ego. He continues as a Progressive Crony Capitalist with little interruption in his creation of his financial global empire. If he loses to Ted Cruz, Progressive Crony Capitalism is dead and so are all of Trump’s efforts to create his financial global empire. Of course if Trump wins POTUS he becomes Economic Czar of the Global Economy. Everything Trump says “HE” will do is negotiable, situational and determined by Trump’s personal gain.

        1. Agi Yaeger

          MUG, it’s the same old, same old, here. Notice only you, as a true conservative, answered my question directly, not the Trumpsters. They don’t dare answer, just skirt around the issue, making us look bad.
          You answered succinctly and on the money.
          I doubt “the new neo- progressive republican party members could answer.
          They now live by a new code, revenge, hate and retribution if the subjects don’t comply. I never saw that written in our constitution.
          Judson is 100% correct the republican party of Abraham Lincoln is dead. The grassroots Conservatives had nothing to do with it.
          It’s now our time to form the new constitutional party that will finally save this nation.

          1. Kenny Sono

            Agi / Mug,
            Perhaps it has been too long since you were in high school?
            Trump is far more easily explained by a simple observation anyone can make anytime walking down the hallway anywhere in America, at any high school.
            Trump is immature. How does a middle aged man get that way? Simple: He is rich, he is spoiled, he never grew up. He always gets his way. Similar (in a bizarre way) to Obama, everything is “given” to him. However, there is one big difference: Trump gets things “given” to him by tons of effort and most of that effort comes from him steering people who work for him. Call that tyranny or leadership but that’s how people become Billionaires. Think it’s done some other way? TRY IT. Obama has everything “given” to him because he is half black, has a great smile, and a good sense of humor. He knows he is and always be a puppet and like the people roaming the world who image themselves to be the CHOSEN FEW, he is beyond that. Delusional in Obama’s case? Only if you ignore the title he currently holds.
            So, if you really want to use Logic to understand Trump, you have to be forgetting the silly confusing chaos of life in High School. THAT is the world Trump reverts to anytime someone pushes him up against the lockers or tells their girlfriend that nobody likes him or some teacher calls him to get into the classroom. Trump is just convinced he’s super impressive and super successful, and otherwise completely like a high school kid. It’s that simple.
            That doesn’t change the fact that
            Trump is STILL a far better choice than Hillary, who you COULD create deeply complex theories about… all day long and – every one of them might be correct.

        2. Kenny Sono

          Mug, similar to Agi, you are mostly correct almost all the time!
          In this case, I agree with all that (in spite of what I wrote about his High School ways bel0w), with one exception:
          ” If he loses to Ted Cruz, Progressive Crony Capitalism is dead and so are all of Trump’s efforts to create his financial global empire.”
          Even IF Cruz were still in this race, I would disagree. I think it’s actually just slightly worse! If he HAD lost to Cruz (or any other true Conservative / maybe one who knows how to get over stupid stuff…..):
          Trump would just go back to his old ways, his old place, and still end up far better off financially, if only due to the “personality” he just created around himself. People like the owners of Apple and Microsoft and so forth would all pale by comparison now. Again; high school stuff. When you were in high school, did anyone ever mention really pretty girls? See?

    Must again respectfully disagree with you. Look at past Republican presidents post Reagan era. They all stunk. Paul Ryan has run the “Republican” senate as bad as Barak Hussain would have run it. Tell me the difference between the parties? Donald Trump did what needed to be done by reshaping the Republican party as a Populist party for working Americans. The people wanted this change and Trump represents this change. As for winning I will wager you any amount that you wish that Donald Trump will be the next president.
    If you want an ultra liberal supreme court, immigrants pouring in and running wild, your second amendment rights taken away, the police/military demonized, higher taxes and total left wing control of your life then vote for Hillary. As for Ted Cruz he proved that he was a classless individual that IMO committed political suicide with his speech at the convention. There is such a thing as accepting loss in a graceful way. Even boxers that beat the crap out of each other typically hug and congratulate themselves for a great fight when the bout is over. Cruz can give it but he sure can’t take it and who was it that kicked off the feud by posting racy pictures of Melania Trump?

    The Republican Party was reborn, as was called for. The old party no longer served the needs and wants of the people, as eveidenced by the overwhelming support of Trump, above all other Republican candidates!
    Either all members stand behind Trump, as the people will, or in essence they will stand with Hillary, for there are no longer any choices.

  9. Steve W.

    Sadly, if Clinton wins, it is the end of this country. Trump may have killed a party, but the Republic may still stand, for a little longer anyway, than it will if Clinton wins.

    Sorry. You’re dead. A Political Lightyear ago, your CLIQUE OF GOPPER LAWYERS banned YOU, Y-O-U, from ‘Their’ Convention. That was pure outrage. We had no recourse but to vote for Sarah Palin, the only human being on the ballot.
    I had been infuriated with the Lawyer Lynching she sustained in the election’s aftermath.
    Far too late, I finally gleaned it was the GOPPER Lawyers headhunting this fine provincial administrator.
    You make me sick.
    I watched the past week’s events, right down to MSNBC’s insanity, to the subtle pretentions of CSPAN
    You Lie.
    The Crowd did not BOO the US Constitution (which your ilk has allowed to degenerate to Obama’s SCROTUM), it booed Ted Cruz for political opportunism, unable to resist 20 air minutes on an All Channel primetime broadcast.
    I conclude Trump predicted both results.
    Your GOPPROGS will momentarily assimilate in the flawed Libertarian Ranks, to sabotage another election you can not manipulate.
    The Difference in #2? We are sharpshooters. When we finally agree on targets, don’t be too surprised.
    CRUZ was right about the Government Cartel and its wannabees.
    When his own Texans spurn his grandiose behavior, “Wake Up, Jud!” We’re talking
    T E X A S !
    Were they prepped to boo him if he crossed the line?…… …………………..I certainly hope so.
    All we would need is another cracker-sucking Mutt Rimshot who bypasses his career when he is bamboozled by a slouching PROG-PAGANDIST MEDIA HUMP/Obama Conspirator on national live TV days before the Election.
    Did you quantify the GOP retaliation? Me, too.
    If you still doubt the GOPPROGGER/PROGOPPER Cabal, or at least, confess it,
    “Don’t Mess with Mother Nature!” She has an Extinction Schedule.

    Trump’s Family was one determinant. Media Freakism bedamned. With Pence? He won my endorsement.
    If you truly believe Armed Patriots will be Lawyers’ Allies………

      ” Sorry you’re dead,” is not the kind of threat made on a public forum, sir! It appears that the vitriol and hatred has taken over rational thought.
      First of all when Cruz entered the arena, he was cheered on, not booed. Everyone already knew he was not there to endorse Trump, including Trump. but he played the game to incite.
      Cruz was there to remind the conservatives at that convention, oh yes we are still alive and well, also to remember that what really counts in the scheme of things is the respect and reverence for the constitution that has been trashed by many in recent years. That the only thing that counts is that glorious document that came about through Divine Providence, that kept this nation on course thanks to our founders vision and the love of our nation.
      Leave it to progressives to twist those intentions into pretzels and blow it out of proportion that eventually is turned against us.
      I didn’t know that voting your conscience has become a criminal act, but it sure is in your mind as I see.
      All Cruz did was talk about and glorify that document that was written to be the greatest experiment in human history. He was reminding us that the reason we are in a down spiral is because the constitution and the rule of law have been abandoned in the last 100 years, by progressives.
      It was that document that all the progressives at the convention booed, just as the audience at the DNC last time booed G-d.
      “We’re sharp shooters. When we finally agree on a target, don’t be too surprised.” That’s exactly what your candidate is doing to Cruz after his nomination, instead of fighting against Hillary. Why isn’t Hillary, the real adversary getting pummeled by you and Trump? I find that mighty strange and very dark.
      We are now dealing with dangerous zealots as I see. Be careful, I’ve lived in your world a long time ago and the ending is not pretty. So calm down and let truth prevail and not perceptions.

        In 1992, a beleaguered incumbent George H.W. Bush staggered into the convention city of Houston. He’d been bullied in the primaries by the American Firster Pat Buchanan and, having finally won re nomination, was faltering badly in the polls to both Democratic nominee Bill Clinton and Independent candidate H. Ross Perot. Former president Ronald Reagan went to Houston on Bush’s behalf, telling the thrilled Republicans in a humid and moldy Astrodome that he “warmly, genuinely, whole heartedly support the re election of George Bush as president of the United States!” And he meant it. Later that year, he campaign aggressively in California for Bush.
        Reagan never, ever uttered such a phrase when it came to Gerald Ford in 1976. Not by a long shot. Not at the Kansas City convention and not afterwards in the fall. Nor did he ever campaign for Ford. These are matters of undeniable fact, despite the attempt of some Trump boosters to rewrite history by suggesting that Reagan really did support Ford, and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas (A, 97%) was alone in not endorsing Donald Trump this time around. History is too precious and important to be rewritten by a few uninformed Trump revisionists at CNN, just to satisfy a new story line.
        Read the real reason why Reagan didn’t endorse Ford……..

      Thomas, sounds like you’re planning a bloody, armed revolt AGAINST Christians, Constitutionalists and Conservatives.

      Just because we do NOT support a flaming New York, Hard-Left Liberal (like YOU do) and we DO support a good, solid, REAL Christian, Constitutionalist and Conservative (UNLIKE YOU) is NO call to threaten a bloody, armed attack.

      Trampo FUNDED/FUNDS, SUPPORTED/SUPPORTS, AND VOTED FOR:

      JIMMY CARTER-TWICE
      WALTER MONDALE. [NOTE: Means Trampo NEVER voted FOR Reagan!]
