Dear Sen. Cruz:
I liked your speech at the 2016 RNC. You did good.
I took some time to consider who did NOT speak at the 2016 RNC:
Former President George H.W. Bush
Former President George W. Bush
Former Vice President Richard Cheney
Former Vice President Dan Quayle
Former Sec. of State Jim Baker
Former Sec. of State Colin Powell
Former Sec. of State Condoleza Rice
Former Gov. Jeb Bush
Sen. John McCain
Former Gov. Mitt Romney
You had the courage to speak. You had the courage to re-state your values. You had the courage to support Republican values without endorsing the nominee. That's what conventions used to be like.
There are times to confront. There are times to rally. I would have liked you to have rallied a little more and support the nominee for President. You didn't. When asked why you didn't endorse Donald Trump, you gave a straightforward answer. I respect that.
There are times when we all feel a bit lonely. Winston Churchill certainly had those moments. Abraham Lincoln definitely had those moments.
Time and time again, our nation's leaders show themselves to be shameless. They have no principles. They refuse to fight for anyone; not even their own family. Often times, they fail to fight even for themselves like a certain Democratic Candidate did tonight when after all the harsh talk of the primaries, he prostrated himself before Hillary Clinton. (What a surprise! Eh?)
After debating against Hillary Rodham against her gun control policy proposals, this Democratic Candidate for President told the entire nation tonight that he trusts Hillary Rodham to nominate Supreme Court Justices that will uphold our civil liberties. On CSPAN, the cameras quickly focused on Sen. Charles Schumer of New York standing and cheering loudly in response to the remark.
Are we to really believe that this senile old man was REALLY against the "billionaire class"?
I know there are a lot of terrible compromises a political leader has to make in the course of working the job. As far as I ever witnessed for myself, you stayed true to your values and principles.
For that I thank you. And just to pass along a little advice: don't worry too much about all those idiotic "political analysts" who say you're "through". There's work for you to do no matter what title you hold or endeavor calls you.
There is NO Santa Claus (aka TINSC)
