This presidential election cycle is a unique experiment in “We the People” politics. For the first time in my lifetime, two Republican candidates vied for the job, both as outsiders, both anti-establishment contenders.
I get it that establishment Republicans wanted neither as president. If I were a member of that elite club, I would also fear either of them taking up residence in the White House.
Despite all the acrimony between Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz, they played by the rules. Obviously, going into the convention with the requisite majority of electoral votes assured the nomination of Mr. Trump.
There is this matter of Paul Ryan who ignores party rules and actively campaigns against Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency.
Full disclosure: I supported Ted Cruz. I promoted Ted Cruz. I, along with 2/3 of all Texas Republican voters, voted for Ted Cruz in the primary election.
Trump won the nomination for one simple reason: he captured the hearts of a significant majority of Republican voters. Now, he’s my candidate.
Paul Ryan, like John Boehner before him, has a penchant for opposing the broad will of Republican voters. I mention only a couple things like Obama’s immigration policy toward unvetted Syrians and ObamaCare. Just a couple.
Perhaps Ryan expects a good paying appointment in a Clinton administration. I don’t know. At this point in time, neither do I care.
It is patently obvious to me it’s time conservative Republican lawmakers get on with the business of electing a Republican president.
Do you agree?
