It was a long fight, perhaps longer than most people expected, but it’s now over. Senator Ted Cruz is not going to be the nominee barring a very sudden shift in the circumstances. Assuming that Donald Trump doesn’t release his tax returns until after he’s officially the nominee, we’ll assume for now that he’s the nominee.
We thank you, Senator Cruz, for fighting the good fight. It has been an inspiration to the conservative movement and millions of Americans who want us to be the shining light on the hill once again. It has also inspired this website to dedicate itself to the fight for conservative values.
Going forward, this site will be focused on restoring conservatism to the United States government and spreading the conservative message to Americans. It has been very focused on the Presidential election and in particular the efforts of the Cruz campaign to put the first true conservative in the White House since Ronald Reagan, but that wasn’t meant to be this time around. We’ll look forward to 2020 and start the search for the next strong conservative candidate. Hopefully, Cruz will give it another run… like Reagan… twice.
One thing this site will not be doing is promoting Donald Trump. He is the presumptive Republican nominee and one might believe that unity behind him is what’s required to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. As I’ll explain in a future post, I’m not completely convinced that Trump represents a better solution for America. We reserve the right to change that stance before the general election, but until we see actual policy proposals beyond the liberal stances released so far, we will wait and see. I’d happily debate anyone who wants to try to convince me that at this stage in the game we know enough to believe that Trump is truly less awful for America than Clinton.
Enough about Trump. We’ll end on a high note. Senator Cruz, you’ve done everything you can up to this point to help America and right the course of this drastically misguided government. Your efforts will not be forgotten and your future success will certainly help the cause.
It’s not a cause for conservatism. It’s definitely not a cause for the GOP. It’s a cause for America and we hope that you continue to fight for as long as you have the ability.
