#NeverHillary

THAT needs to be the focus of conservatives/Republicans. This infighting and #NeverTrump #NeverCruz movement will only guarantee a Democrat victory in November.

Many of you rationalized not supporting the GOP candidates in 2008 and 2012 with ideas like "It took Carter to give us a Reagan; an Obama presidency will produce another Reagan like candidate." Well, you see what that voting mindset brought us. Eight years of Obama and we are far worse off than ever and RR hasn't emerged.

Truly it's better to have someone from our camp---Trump or Cruz---than Hillary. The consequences of the Democrats holding on to the Oval Office another four to eight years will be dire.

Whoever emerges as the nominee needs our support whether he is our candidate of choice.

A president cannot stop abortion, transgendered restrooms, gay marriage, or all of the other morality issues out there. Those are judicially directed. But a president can protect our borders, defeat our enemies, and can impact the economy. Trump and/or Cruz will be sufficient in those areas.

Hillary will advance liberalism.

We must stop Hillary, not Trump or Cruz.

Wake up America!

Re: #NeverHillary

Nope, can't guarantee it.
As a matter of fact I have never voted because I have never found a candidate to measure up to my standards.
Guess I need to run myself.

There has never been a candidate, including RR, who satisfied all of my expectations. Yet as many Christian conservatives hold their presidential candidates to a standard that fits a Christian worldview, meaning oftentimes they don't vote for the GOP candidate, the liberals are content with getting some of what they want, incrementally eroding the traditional mornings of our nation.

Liberalism didn't take over this country overnight. It was done one election at a time, getting a little bit of what they wanted each cycle, sometimes more, sometimes less. But they are smarter than we are---they know that fundamental change occurs slowly, like the melting of a glacier. Christian voters, many of them, want it all in one fell swoop. Impatient lot they are.

Many here are getting hang up on the fact that the Tramp is not perfect.

It's not difficult to understand the problem with a Hillary president versus a Trump presidency.

Trump not perfect? Thats a bit of an understatement. Or maybe not since he said he's never asked God for forgiveness nor had the need to.

But if you're comfortable voting for a thrice married man, whose an admitted adulterer, a casino tycoon, slum lord, foul mouthed, arrogant, and obtuse. A man who thinks nothing of slander, lies, and character assisnation, and who has a wife 30 years younger than him who has been tied to the porn industry as the first lady, then go ahead.


At least with the Clinton's they have abundant executive experience, Hillary would have Bill to lean on.

I can't believe we out of 300 million people, our choices will be this bad. This alone seems like God's judgment on us.

Convince me. Lay out some argument that Trump is superior. And it can't be what he's said in this campaign since almost every conservative claim/promise he's made, he has contradicted at another time during this same campaign. You can try to make it from his history, but again thats filled with liberal positions and financial support of HILLARY FOR PREZ. You can try to make it from a morals/values standpoint.....on second thought LOL. So why is Trump so much more preferable to Hillary?

"""Now, I understand why non-conservatives are willing to back Trump: they agree with his ad hoc policy incoherence, his isolationism, his domestic big government agenda, his tariff-driven trade policy, his utter disdain for the social fabric of conservatism. As one delightfully terse Tweeter who, predictably, uses Trump in a Superman costume as his avatar put it today, "Screw conservatism. Give us Trump.""""

"""Conservatives who back Trump to defeat Hillary are not merely willing to toss conservatism into the trunk - they're willing to allow Trump to take it out to a hole in a cornfield, Casino-style, beat it savagely, and bury it alive. At least we won't get Hillary, they say as they grab a shovel.

There will be long-lasting damage to conservatism from Trump grabbing the banner of the Republican Party - unless conservatives make clear now that they will not honor Trump's hostile takeover of their philosophy.

That's the point of #NeverTrump."""
