I said from the start, a Trump/Cruz ticket is a guaranteed presidential win.

Too many people see Cruz as smarmy in various ways. Myself, I feel there's something "off" about his character. I haven't been able to discern exactly what it is. Something beyond the norm.

If the party brass doesn't support either Trump or Cruz, whoever is the Peoples' choice, FULLY, Trump and Cruz may very well run together on a third party ticket and the GOP brass will face a nightmare scenario. That scenario is one in which neither Hillary nor Rubio win, but the third party run manages to garner Trump/Cruz support from both sides and they take the White House with a middle finger to both parties.

Which honestly says more about the character of the people who won't vote for him simply because he has faith than Ted himself.
Good grief! We have become such a theophobic nation.

I think whatever DC Wants, the public should do the exact OPPOSITE. If they try to steal the election, and change the nom, you could see riots all over the Country... People would revolt. Their Country stolen from them. Their VOTE stolen from them.
If you vote for Trump, and he wins, he should be President. End of Story.
He can't go nuts in office. There are checks and balances and he can't just push a red button and nuke someone.. NORAD and others must be backed up by a second.
The GOP is scared of Trump because he's not sold out to special interests. Why else would they be so upset and freaking out? Because he's crass? Come on...
No ******* way are those bastards going to get away with Diebolding Trump. If they dare try it, this Summer is going to be completely insane. As in, stay away from the convention if you are a Cruz/Rubio/Goldman Sachs supporter or you will get your head busted. That they have already gone this far is proof that the establishment have lost their g**d*** minds and it's time for their retirement.

Cruz runs as a consistent Constitutional conservative, a man of unwavering principle who will not be silenced by the Republican establishment.

GOP senators warn of revolt should Cruz win nomination
The Other Reason The Washington Elite Hate Ted Cruz: Ted Cruz could become the model for future freshman Senators.
“The cadre of Republican lobbyists, operatives and elected officials based in Washington are much more unnerved by Mr. Cruz, a go-it-alone, hard-right crusader who campaigns against the political establishment and could curtail their influence and access, building his own Republican machine to essentially replace them… “Trump won’t do long-lasting damage to the G.O.P. coalition,” said John Feehery, a Capitol Hill aide turned lobbyist. “Cruz will.”
“I think the short answer is because everybody who knows him in the Senate, hates him. And I think hate is not, is not an exaggeration. The enmity which he wears on his sleeve as, with pride, is something that he’s now, you could almost say cultivated. To make him a freshman senator with no particular record into a national figure rallying everybody against the Washington cartel, you know Republicans in the Senate, in the House have been out there half of their lives, don’t appreciate being called essentially traitors to the cause of conservatism. And then you get antipathy and they will put that antipathy perhaps even over what’s best for the party.”
I would meet with Kissinger as well if I were him. Kissinger has been playing footsies with Putin for awhile and that information is priceless.
