Washington establishment continues to oppose only Ted Cruz

To The Daily Sun,
If you are happy with our government in Washington, D.C., then just vote for any N.H. Presidential Primary candidate approved by the Republican or Democrat establishment.

Any such "approved" candidate will continue most or all the big government, wasteful, corrupt policies that destroy jobs, places an immoral debt burden on future Americans, oppresses citizens, and ignores the expressed wishes and best interests of the American people.

Donald Trump won popular support by opposing establishment supported policies, e.g., allowing illegal immigration and welcoming unvetted refugees, and by criticizing establishment politicians' deals that harm our country and the American people.

Then we learned that Trump supports many things most Americans oppose, e.g., the bank bailouts, the Obama stimulus, using eminent domain to benefit special interests, and the big government politicians that threaten our liberties. Now Trump's first deal reveals his interest is benefiting himself, even at the expense of the American people. He not only endorsed but promised to increase the ethanol requirement.

The ethanol requirement is an environmental/crony capitalist program that hurts 99 percent of the American people. It increases fuel and food prices, reduces gas mileage, harms engines, and is more harmful to the environment than gasoline! Nor does ethanol help any energy problem; politicians kept us from being energy independent decades ago.

Trump now boasts that he can work with Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and other establishment politicians. The Washington political establishment is warming to Trump whose ethanol deal reveals they can make mutually beneficial deals with him.

Trump isn't the anti-establishment candidate he appeared to be. A Trump presidency would continue government as usual. This is a big personal disappointment since, despite his abrasiveness, I defended Trump's statements that were in the best interests of the American people.

While the Washington establishment warms to Trump and other supposedly anti-establishment candidates, they continue to oppose Ted Cruz because only Cruz exposes their double-dealing and self-interested actions.

Cruz has fought the establishment to fulfill his campaign promises. Only Cruz is committed to ending the special deals for the special interests; in Iowa, the heart of the ethanol special interests, he promised to eliminate the ethanol requirement.

Ted Cruz is a constitutional conservative, consistently on the anti-establishment, pro-citizen side of every issue.

Ted Cruz is a gentleman, a person who would make Americans proud and our country respected.

If you want to break the Washington establishment's control of our government, to start shrinking big government, and to return to constitutionally limited government that works for the people, we must unify behind the only true anti-establishment conservative; vote for Ted Cruz in the Republican Presidential Primary.

It's time to stop allowing the killing of unborn babies, join us

To The Daily Sun,

Have you seen the videos exposing Planned Parenthood's gruesome business practices? With a legal right to end the life of any unborn child, it is not surprising that profiteers find ways to make money from this shameful trade. The Planned Parenthood videos, 11 of them thus far, show how callous and deadened is the moral compass of the people involved in the business of aborting babies. They totally ignore the humanity of these little ones, and their humanity itself is the exact reason that their body parts and organs are so valuable.

On Jan. 20, we were 47 pilgrims who left for the great March For Life in Washington, D.C., to witness for the rights of unborn persons. Sadly, by Friday morning the blizzard, expected to be the worst in history to hit Washington, D.C., had accelerated and forced us to leave for home before the March started.

Although we never got to actually march, we had all Thursday to attend outstanding seminars and panel discussions. It was so inspiring and invigorating to hear these young professionals passionately talk about using truth, courage, and love in fighting this holocaust. We heard a great talk from David Daleiden, the young man who created the Planned Parenthood videos. He said that in college he attended the Walk For Life in San Francisco, and that experience, and what he learned there left a profound mark on him. When he graduated, David decided that he wanted to really make a difference. He gave up three years of his life developing and implementing a plan to expose the abortion trade for what it actually is and does. He told of actually liking these people he was unmasking, in spite of what awful stuff they were doing. That struck me as exactly what we're commanded to do as Christians: love the sinner, but hate the sin. I think that is why he was so successful; he genuinely cared for the people working in this trade — a trade that he so profoundly abhorred.

One of the pro-life speakers in D.C. likened the unborn child to a slave, who is at the whim and mercy of its owner, his/her mother — without the protection of law. It's time for people of good will to get involved ... it's time to stop allowing the killing of unborn babies. Join us in this life-saving abolitionist movement. It's time.
