   A Democrat and a Socialist win in Indiana. Sounds like the start of a bad joke, doesn't it? Only I'm not laughing. Congratulations, Trumpkins, you now have your Celebrity Apprentice GOP nominee. After the blowout in IN, Ted Cruz is officially done and, for me, his exit was the final death knell for the Tea Party Movement, as well. 
   Although I supported him, this has never been about Cruz so much as the things he stands for. This fight has always been about restoring our Republic, beating back the Left and securing the rights and liberties of the American people. Ted Cruz was merely a vehicle. In the end, the goal for me has always been the return of small, republican government rooted in our Constitution.
   Let's be honest here. The options in November will be a Democrat, a Democrat, or a third party candidate. Our choice will be between a far left Big Government Democrat or a Liberal, Crony-Capitalist, Big Government Democrat. Neither wants to reduce the size of government. Neither will do a damn thing to rein in the pending collapse of our unfunded entitlements. Both plan to raise taxes on an already over-burdened citizenry. Both want to grant legal status to millions of illegal aliens.
   If he stands for anything, Donald Trump does not stand for the ideals I believe in & he will never represent me. When the choice is between two reprehensible, corrupt, and immoral demagogues, you can always pick the ethical way out and say none of the above. Sometimes there is no lesser of two evils.  I did not spend countless thousands of dollars and hours campaigning, protesting, marching on Washington, etc., to end up with a Liberal NY Conman as my standard bearer.
   As Popeye said, "that's all I can stands, I can't stands no more." And so, I'm done. Politics is a fool's game of frustration and futility for people of principle in a society mostly devoid of it. Back in March I almost quit, but there was still a small chance that the Constitutional Conservative might beat the Carnival Barker. But now that chance is gone and so am I. 
   While I intend to remain friends with the many amazing Patriots I've met over the last 8 years, for my own sanity, I must completely disengage. It's too painful watching the country I love go to shit and realizing that so few people in the TPM actually believed in the Constitution, free markets and fiscal sanity that we were supposedly fighting for. This is the end of the line for "flag-shirt-guy" and this weekly commentary. Pray for our children and our country.

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions.

Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the "new wonderful good society" which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean "more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious".

- Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)


"It does not take a majority to prevail - but an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

-- Samuel Adams

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

-- Ronald Reagan

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened".

-- Norman Thomas
Socialist Candidate for President of the United States 1944
