Pick Your Life Raft and Be Careful

Picking the right life raft (no pun intended) will be a critical choice in this election cycle. There are a lot of things to consider before going down with the ship. Some choices are better than others. A leaky life raft that saves you is better than one that fails you. Enough of the metaphors. Read the serious considerations as to why the dump Trump nonsense may have to end, if for no other reason than to save the ship of state, Read this article by Jazz Shaw for Hot Air and decide for yourself.

Allow me to inflate this life raft for my #NeverTrump friends

Now that everyone has had some time to digest the results of Not Quite So Super Tuesday’s GOP contests we seem to be quickly approaching a turning point. The reality is that the various efforts to undermine Donald Trump’s popularity with primary voters may have had some effect, but it thus far hasn’t been enough to fully hit the brakes on that train. And if the most recent poll numbers looking ahead to next Tuesday somehow hold up, many of my friends are going to need to come to grips with some unpleasant realities. Trump is still holding on to a lead in Florida and Ohio and if he takes both of those along with a majority of the other states up for grabs, it’s probably too late for those who are bound and determined to stop him.

Mind you, I’m not saying it’s a certainty, but the hour is late and I don’t hear the cavalry coming over the ridge yet. Just for the record, I endorsed Ted Cruz in this race. Some of my friends went with Rubio and I even know a few Kasich fans. It’s all good. As I said when I threw my lot in with Cruz, I would happily support any one of them if they wound up getting the nomination. I still hope that there will be a sudden turn of events and Cruz will wind up getting 1,237 delegates in a madcap string of wins coming down to the finish line, but we don’t always get what we want in this life, particularly in politics.
