"Vote your conscience," Ted Cruz said during the Republican National Convention. Shortly after saying those words Ted Cruz became many things: a GOP pariah, a vanquished spoiler, and most of all, he became the bravest man on the planet. Given the extremist nature of today's electorate, he knew he would be vilified for refusing to endorse a man against whom he exchanged every slight imaginable in pursuit of the nation's highest office. He knew he was driving his political career onto the rocks when he refused to explicitly state his support for the wildly popular Donald John Trump. He knew that standing up for his family would garner him not the respect of the otherwise "family values" GOP, but its bitterest enmity. "Vote your conscience," Ted Cruz said as he refused to genuflect before the Trump juggernaut. He knew his stance could lead to his political destruction, yet Cruz stood firm and spoke his conscience.
Despite his rapid vilification at the hands of the GOP faithful, the words of Ted Cruz ring just as true for the Democrats as they do for the party of Lincoln given the Democrats committed acts that greatly exceed the bounds of mere insults. No, their actions were absolutely treasonous. The Democrats set out to nullify voter intent and anoint Hillary from the start, so if a truly great candidate had emerged from the traveling freakshow that was the noxious field of Democrat challengers, that person would not have been able to win due to the vote-rigging of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, all those who actively performed a year-long act of vote tampering, and all those who gave (and currently still give) their tacit approval of such illegality.
My dear New York Democrats, I ask you to remember that Republicans (like me) and Independents can't vote in your upcoming Primary. It is up to you to cast your vote responsibly. Are you going to give the lying populist named "Hillary Clinton" our state's blessing to continue her campaign of deception? Are you going to be part and parcel to her march to power?
It's not that this candidate is a woman. The fact that she is and trades on it shows how shallow her campaign truly is. No, it's about issues, facts, and truth, not gender. We should all feel free to vote against her despite this candidate's absolutely false claims that failing to support her is a blow against women. The truth is, voting against her strikes a blow for a better America as a whole. The last time I checked, "America as a whole" includes women.
Could you vote for a purported "champion of minorities" who casually makes statements that invoke the worst of black stereotypes and then rests easy while the Democrat machine shields her from the inevitable fallout? Hillary committed yet another verbal gaffe recently when she and NY Mayor Bill DeBlasio conducted a "comedy" skit in which they referred to the alleged tardiness of blacks via the derogatory term "C.P. Time" (Colored People's Time). Since the pair has seemingly forgotten the scope and usage of basic English, I'll explain it to them: Words have meaning, and the meaning of words--especially offensive ones--does not change or lose impact when spoken by certain groups. "Colored People" is an old and offensive term, as is the N-word and other slurs against blacks. However, Mrs. Clinton benefits from a Democrat-based double standard that fosters the idea that (A) all Democrats are fair and color-blind and (B) that slurs, when spoken both incorrectly and exclusively by minorities, are perfectly acceptable.
The Democrats performed this sleight of hand by not rallying its usual troops of activists and slanted media against the use of the slurs in the above manner. That is, if the N-word was in wide public use by Caucasians, the Dems would decry its use as proof of a GOP conspiracy and spread fear within minority communities. However, since minorities are largely the ones publicly using slurs about themselves in self-destructive fashion, the Democrats simply ignore the issue as to keep the fatted calf that is their most dependable voting bloc placated. The end result is that the Dems foster the perception that they are the champions of the minority community, but actions from prominent Dems such as Mrs. Clinton belie their words.
Hillary is typical of Democratic candidates and the party as a whole. They excel in lumping groups together so they can pander to, frighten, or misdirect target demographics en masse. So, don't be a lemming. Don't vote for Hillary. Don't reward the most visible Democrat on Earth for her party's duplicity. Don't join the herd in jumping off a cliff. Ask yourself: Do I really want to empower a lying Dixiecrat who lacks sufficient political adeptness to avoid being caught in her own duplicity? Do I really want to reward someone who continues to place herself above the law? Do I really want to vote for a candidate who's backed by the very people she claims she's pledged to fight against? Do I want to vote for a candidate who belittles the very people she claims to champion?
For the sake of this nation, I hope your answer is no.
