I’ve endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). I was a contributor to National Review’s Against Trump symposium at the beginning of the year.Trump has lived in the public eye for a long time, and is the most transparent of all the candidates. Yes, he has principles and means what he says. He is what he appears to be.
Sarah Palin, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee and Phyllis Schlafly — you are friends and allies, serious men and women for whom I have great respect. You and other conservatives disagreed.
I pen this open letter to you. ...
Does Donald Trump mean a word he says? ...
Is someone with no discernible principles the candidate you want leading the Republican Party and taking on the Democrats in 2016?
His first principle is that the President's first concern should be the protection of America and Americans. A recent speech said: “We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism.”
We have been waiting since Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan for a Republican candidate to say stuff like that. Yes, there are many other important conservative issues, but they will not matter if our leaders surrender our nation to the false song of globalism.
Pat Buchanan said stuff like that, but he was unable to build a sufficiently broad base of support. Trump is gaining support from all demographics, and creating excitement that we have not seen in a long time. This year's biggest political issue is globalism, and it is the best issue for defeating Hillary Clinton.
