I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people. Members of the club — the consultants, the pollsters, the politicians, the pundits and the special interests — grow rich and powerful while the American people grow poorer and more isolated.
No one forced anyone to cancel the vote in Colorado. Political insiders made a choice to cancel it. And it was the wrong choice.
Responsible leaders should be shocked by the idea that party officials can simply cancel elections in America if they don’t like what the voters may decide.
The only antidote to decades of ruinous rule by a small handful of elites is a bold infusion of popular will. On every major issue affecting this country, the people are right and the governing elite are wrong. The elites are wrong on taxes, on the size of government, on trade, on immigration, on foreign policy.
Why should we trust the people who have made every wrong decision to substitute their will for America’s will in this presidential election?And the killer point he made is this:
While I am self-funding, Mr. Cruz rakes in millions from special interests. Yet despite his financial advantage, Mr. Cruz has won only three primaries outside his home state and trails me by two million votes — a gap that will soon explode even wider. Mr. Cruz loses when people actually get to cast ballots. Voter disenfranchisement is not merely part of the Cruz strategy — it is the Cruz strategy.Cruz is not who the media makes him out to be, nor is Trump.
I watched his speech last night at a Republican Party. It was funny and informative. He did not talk about policy -- "politics is boring" he said -- but instead used his experience in getting Governor Carey to build the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan instead of the middle of the Hudson River. He spoke of the ordeal of getting the address changed for a building from 7 Columbus Square to 1 Central Park West.
Finally, he spoke of building an ice rink in four months that the city was unable to do in eight years. The city's ice expert was from Miami Beach. He used copper tubing and freon. People kept stealing the copper tubing. Trump called the GM of the Montreal Canadiens and he sent his "ice man" to look at the project. He said use rubber hose. It worked, and no one wanted to steal it.
Four months later, Central Park had an ice rink again.
New Yorkers were screwed until Trump intervened.
Americans are screwed now. We need a Trump intervention. STAT.
