GULLIBILITY, HONESTY AND ETHICS!
Watching the triad of Republican candidates, Cruz, Paul and Rubio who are already running for President of the United States is interesting. If you desire to watch how the three traits I included in the title of this article play out you might gain some knowledge. Honesty and ethics of these young men is refreshing but when you throw in innocence you have a factor most overlook. The one thing that will remove all chances of a Republican winning back the White house in 2016 is gullibility. All three of these candidates have proven to me that they are honest and ethical in both written words and interviews.
Looking back at the last two Republicans who ran for President, McCain and Romney, there were differences. McCain came across as a career politician who felt like Americans owed him the position. Even though I voted for him I never personally trusted his honesty or his ethics. In regards to his gullibility, Obama made him look like a fool in every debate they had. McCain is not a bad person but politics have scarred his body and mind far more than his time as a prisoner of war.
When Romney, who I also voted for, made his run for the Presidency he came across to me as a model of honesty and ethics. If they had pictures in the dictionary to display beside the words Ethics and Honesty Romney, Cruz, Paul and Rubio would all be there. Sadly like McCain, Romney also let courtesy, leadership and correctness allow the biggest con artist in American political history to win two terms as President of the United States. Gullibility is being unable to understand that politics in America today is one-sided.
I am “not” suggesting that the Republican candidates learn how to lie, cheat, extort, and mesmerize the voter. They must learn how to expose both the Democratic candidate, Democrats in Congress and the media who has the power to destroy any political candidate they desire. The American media is no longer a purveyor of the news, it has become a propaganda power far greater than the press in Germany was in the 1930’s when I was a boy. Obama, with the help of the media, has proved if you lie long enough the gullible will give up. Currently the gullible women, students and the exploding welfare population believe that getting everything free has no consequences. When there is no longer anyone able or willing to create industrial jobs the party is over.
This morning I watched an interview of Rand Paul on Fox and Friends that was an example of how gullible the inexperienced Senator can be. Fox is accused of right-wing bias but this morning it proved otherwise to me. The entire interview was pushing him to criticize Hillary Clinton. They had no other purpose than to make him look like he was against the only woman running so far for President. This chicanery is to be expected on CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC and their derivatives. Now Fox appears to be changing.
I mentioned that I voted for both McCain and Romney but I did not explain another political phenomenon that has now become the standard for elections in America in my lifetime. Only the gullible vote for anyone today while myself and far too many Americans actually vote against someone for their choices for leadership. Any American that voted for Obama, especially the second time, has intelligence issues and has no regard for either ethics or honesty. No one in their right mind can ignore the effort to ignore our Constitution by our President, Cabinet Officers and even the Supreme Court. If these people want to change the Constitution, our rights and our government, then do it by lawful methods already in place.
So far the only Republican candidate that has proven to me that he is smarter than the twisted interviewers is Cruz. So far he has been faster minded than the media and has not been goaded to criticizing his opponents, including Hillary. If he maintains his mastery of knowledge, honesty and ethics during interviews and debates he will get my vote and support. Unfortunately because he is a proven leader he will likely not get nominated. If the Republicans continue to destroy each other in the primaries I will probably just vote for a third loser in a row. President Hillary Clinton scares me and the Republican Party will cease to exists.
