Dr. Gina warns of Democrats ‘laughing as we self-destruct’
I have met Donald Trump several times at various political events. He never struck me as someone I wanted for president. As I have watched him this political season, I have never been convinced that he is a strict adherent to Christian principles. I think he would do himself a service to admit that he has a lot to learn, and that he knows how to surround himself with wicked smart people, just as he has his whole career, who can help him “Make America Great Again.”
But that is no excuse for the attacks by those who think he doesn’t have a right to run and put himself through the rigors of a primary to test that concept.
From Day 1, I leaned toward Ted Cruz. I know him. I like him. I trust him.
My husband and both of my co-authors and closest business partners, Ann Marie Murrell and Morgan Brittany, have endorsed Cruz.
So far, I am holding my fire and trying to be patient as I watch the primary process unfold, and I listen. Cruz, like Trump, has made some decisions that really tested my confidence in him, like attacking my friend, who did nothing except accept a job as spokesperson for Donald Trump. He could have also disavowed those who would subvert the primary process, and he hasn’t.
But I am watching, constantly reminding myself that this is the whole point of the primary process – to watch and weed as some amazing candidates put themselves out there to be raked over the coals for the grand prize of facing off against a reckless statist in the end.
How quickly doubters forget …
1) Trump singlehandedly took on the establishment and won, as no candidate, or grass roots organization has done, to date.
2) Trump singlehandedly put illegal immigration back into the political vernacular after the statists had systematically made the topic unspeakable.
3) Trump has some serious accountability partners whom I trust to stand firm for constitutional principles, including Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin and Phyllis Schlafly. Do we think they will just curl up like cocktail shrimp if Trump gets out of line? Not a chance. I know these women, and they are the strongest, smartest and most dedicated to both God and country that you could ever meet. Remember that hell hath no fury …
I think conservatives may have to do two things:
1) admit to themselves that we won’t have Jesus running in our primary,
2) admit to themselves that Reagan wasn’t perfect either, and many self-appointed “conservatives” were radically opposed to him in the primary because they didn’t trust his Christian street cred, or his knowledge of policy and the U.S. Constitution.
