I know it’s not likely that my presidential candidate Ted Cruz will be chosen as the nominee in 2016. Many reasons for that but I won’t get into them now. (Although I would like to be proven wrong.)
But the Republican party primary is coming to my home state of California. This would seem like a great thing for conservatives to finally get to choose their candidate. However, as I recently discovered on my sample ballot, at least in California, if you are not officially part of the Republican party you will not see the choice available of voting for the conservative or Republican candidate of choice.
In the end who does this actually help? I believe this only helps the Democrats. If the Republicans really wanted to win they would want conservatives able to vote for the conservative/Republican candidates whenever possible. They would want Conservative candidates period. They would want people to know about them and why Conservative candidates are the best choice for this country. Unless, as I surmise, the Republican Party is actually secretly working for the Democrats? Could it be the Republican Establishment is actually Democratic leaning and working underneath the public hype as Democrats with a Republican name? No matter if it’s true or not, one thing has become more clear, they have lost their way like the Left already has.
There is always the Write-In option
Now just because I am not wanting to be part of an official political party (aside from Conservative which does not officially exist in California), does not mean I won’t choose the best candidate. I plan to write-in my choice for president– Ted Cruz and I urge others to do the same.
