Should Cruz Have Endorsed Trump?

by Bradley Matthews

Donald Trump Ted Cruz

“After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.” — Ted Cruz

    At last you see the light. It is not that Donald Trumb is the better choice but Hillery must not become our next copunt of our white House!!!!!!
    excuse the spelling mistakes. I do not spell aqs well as I speak.

    He waited too long to keep a promise; He could have been campaigning all this time against Hillary, but pride blinds so many. Trump needed all the Republicans to get on board to help defeat the liberal Democratic “machine”. Everyone held Trump’s feet to the fire to make the pledge, but the same people deserted him when he needed them most! I only hope that it is not too late for our country!

    I don’t have a high opinion of Cruz, Yes he should of back Trump long before now!

    Yes – he absolutely did the right thing…should have done that long ago. AND Trump needs to nominate Cruz for the open position of SCOTUS. WE NEED HIM on the bench.

    Hes right! We must protect the supreme court, and the constitution!

    While Cruz’s decision to support the Trump/Pence ticket is appreciated, let’s not deceive ourselves. This was a purely vain realization on Cruz’s part that Trump is on a path to victory, and Cruz’s respect plummeted after the RNC fiasco. Cruz kissed Mr. Trump’s you know what until it became supremely obvious where the primary was headed. Now it’s time to unite because a President Trump will provide Senator Cruz with ample opportunity to pass needed legislation and help Make America Great Again as a collaborative team. The Trump and Cruz teams only have a win win in this situation. BTW Senator Cruz’s 6 point layout of why he is supporting the Trump/Pence ticket was excellent. I only wish the Senator would have realized his own words sooner when at the RNC he said, “vote your conscience for candidates up and down the ticket that will uphold the Constitution of the United States.” A President HiLIARy Clinton would be unconscionable!

    I meant to also say I totally agree with Laura G. Holmes. Pleasure to be in such good company.

    I agree with Lynn Pridgen. Senator Cruz, many of us were behind you to start with but you failed to live up to our expectations. Also you have done nothing to combat
    Obama and his destruction of our Constitution. So you have long way to go to make up for your lack of action when you should have stood up and took the fight to the Dems. It is too late to know how you could have helped America if you had not been so concerned with self.

    I hope that he is doing this for the right reasons, however, given his track record, I am just not sure. The head of the RNC has stated that anyone who signed the pledge and did not live up to their obligation would not be allowed to run for president in the future. There is also the fact that Rick Perry is outpolling him in Texas for his senate seat, so his senator days may be numbered. Let’s just pray that Donald Trump wins or the country will be in dire straights.

    Better late than never, but he can kiss his political career good-bye.

    That’s a good start! Now, if you could begin to push your colleagues into bringing impeachment charges on Obama and the FBI to indict Hillary Clinton, everything would be rosy!

    Always remember that to be a true Christian you must have a personal relationship with the one true GOD of the bible!!! We as believers understand that the Godhead is three Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and all three become one within us as the Holy Spirit provides a rebirth for the spirit within us making us whole!!! Many people may profess they are Christian becauise they can spout the text of the bible but they are simply words unless you trust that they are truly of GOD through His Prophets The book of revelations describes the last times very well and if you trust in those words knowing that they possess truth wisdom and life you will realize that many will step forward proclaiming that they believe but please do not be fooled!!! For instance Hillary changes her position to match the community she stands before to deliver her speeches to near empty rooms!!! My beleif is that Ted Cruz is someone who truly knows how to lie with the best of them!!! I could be wrong about him but his association with the Bush-Clinton criminal cabal or syndicate(America’s largest drug smugglers assisted by the c.i.a.)!!! The money they make from the sale of these drugs funds their efforts to turn this once great nation into a communist state under a one world government!! We are not in a fight between parties this election we are in a fight for the very life of this Republic against the elite, globalist psychotic devil worshipers seeking to end Christianity on this planet!!! They plan on burning down our Christian churches and build mosqes on the ashes!!! Hopefully some who do not understand the level at which this battle of evil attempting to destroy the good that has provided us with the God given rights found within a document that has been under attack for quite some time now, the Constitution of these United States of America!!! If you do not appreciate these GOD given rights then i suggest you vote for anyone but Trump as some of the old political dinosaurs seem to want to do to protect the fact that they have sold out the American way of life simply due to their greed!!! There must be changes brought into play after a Trump victory that ends these lifetime entitlement programs and does not allow someone to sit in Washington for term after term accomplishing little if anything for the good of the people!!! Cruz is one of those old dinosaur political hanger on’s who have given very little to the state of Texas while resting on his laxity so as not to be forced to get a real position outside of government!!! Someone said who really cares about who Ted the never Trumper leader who has been told to surrender to the will of the people!!! With American citizens across this nation wake up to the battle at hand they must never forget that creating a wave that wins the White house back does not mean the battle to preserve the Republic is over it in all reality is just beginning !!! People like old lying Ted must be beaten down before we can rest a little easier but remember that the threat being faced today never really goes away!!! The battle for freedom must continue every single day to ensure that a sleeping people never come this close to losing America again!!! GOD SAVE AMERICA!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! GOD inspire you people to always remain vigilant protecting this gift you have provided them a free nation where they can worship and live in peace and prosperity forever Amen!!!

    Yes definitely but im glad he endorsed Trump it is very beneficial to his campaign, but it would have been better if he had done it sooner.

    Of course Cruz SHOULD have because he agreed to a “PLEDGE” from the very beginning ……. but, now, I’m sorry to say, as USUAL , Cruz has an agenda of his own……. and isn’t doing this just because its the “honorable” thing to do :{ Could it be because of Polictic’s there Ted ???? Once a liar, Always a lying Ted Cruz !!!!! “Impressed” though how humble & forgiving Trumps is to Cruz though even though I’m sure he can see right thru him and his in-sincerity :} Thats WHY Mr TRUMP is the RIGHT Candidate for the Preisdent of the United States and will WIN in November !!

    Well its about time Cruz!! Should have done this in the beginning!!

    September 24, 2016,3:38 am

  16. Ann

    Yes he should, but I agree he did it because of what Reince Priebus said.

    Who gives a flip who lying Ted is voting for……I surely don’t. He is IRRELEVANT!

    September 23, 2016,9:26 pm

  18. Kathy Giles

    Cruz just did that after Reince Priebus said he would change the rules that no one who did not honor the pledge would be allowed to ever run for any office in the GOP. Don’t you think that is why he changed his mind?

    Ted Cruz had a lot of reasons to upset with Donald Trump. At the heart of Christianity, which Ted Cruz professes, is this thing that we call forgiveness. Looks like Ted Cruz has forgiven Donald Trump. I am pleased to learn that he will be voting for him.
