Ted Cruz Drops Out

Ted Cruz is ending his Presidential campaign.

That is a sad way to end the Republican Party, handing it over to a man supported by white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

The strain on Ted Cruz and his family had to be enormous, particularly with the vicious attacks by Trump and his supporters. God bless him. History will note that the Republican leadership in Washington vastly prefers defeat with Trump than defeat with Cruz because a Cruz nomination would both further embolden conservatives to fight the leadership of the party and would endanger the jobs of Republican consultants.

They will all be protected now and the GOP will not change.
