    I’ve been a rock solid CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE fighting for smaller government, LESS regulations, LOWER taxes, religious liberty, a strong military, and against Common Core/PC indoctrination for over 30 years! The establishment Republicans need a shellacking this November or the party is dead in the water. Only Trump can deliver the numbers, the energy and the REASONS for killing the RINOS who have IGNORED the will of the people and the tea party. We cannot elect another ‘lawyer politician’ and have any credibility. Bonnie Dougherty, Cdr, USN RET.

      I’m sorry you feel that a man who has supported Democrats both financially and ideologically for over 40 years is best suited to lead ‘conservatively’.

      The man financed 5 out of the 8 of the Gang of 8 legislators, for crying out loud.

      Trump knows absolutely nothing about education. He knows less about Common Core and I find his stumping using Common Core as a rally cry incredibly insulting given the fight I’ve lead in this state over it.

      Can you explain to me the difference between “Hope and Change” and “Make America Great Again” for folks reading this?

      Having said that, it’s still a free country. Vote for who you like.

      You do realize Trump has said several times he’s part of the GOP “establishment?”

      “Hey, don’t forget… I was establishment six months ago… I was pure establishment.” Donald Trump on Fox & Friends, December 12, 2015

      “You know, the top people, senators, and all these people, a lot of them don’t know me. A lot of them do because, as you know, I’ve been in politics for a long time…I used to be establishment. You know, I’d write big checks all the time, right? I was establishment. – Donald Trump on Sean Hannity, February 29

      Trump is only going to add / make worse the issues we are dealing with right now. He’s not a Conservative Constitutionalist, which is exactly what we need. We’re punishing the one guy who IS a Conservative Constitutionalist and who has NEVER caved or supported Obama! That man is Ted Cruz.

    Marco Rubio didn’t win a single delegate last night. He MUST get out. Time to coalesce behind Ted Cruz!


    • Stacie Clarke says:

      Agree!! We have to get behind Cruz! He’s the only Conservative Constitutionalist running for POTUS!
