I just now found this on a website and thought it was important to post. I totally agree with Mr. Bennett's analysis of why Donald Trump is hated by the establishment. His brashness and courage to say those things we have all wanted to say is so refreshing.
Nevertheless, it was very much of a struggle for me to decide who to vote for today in the IL primary. I prayed for days and heard nothing. This morning I felt peace about voting my conscience. It seemed contrary to all that I believe in to vote for Donald Trump who has lived an immoral life, had several affairs, impregnated one of his girlfriends while married to a previous wife. He has filed bankruptcy 4 times which cheats many creditors. I have always believed integrity and character matters. Trump also offers no solutions for problems--only states "I'll fix it, and you'll love it," forgetting that he won't be a king, but will be accountable to Congress and the Supreme Court.
After Ben Carson dropped out I pretty much lost interest in the other candidates. Even though I have been very disappointed in Cruz saying Trump caused the riots against him I ended up voting for Cruz today because he seemed the lesser of the evils. He is a Constitutionalist. He stood against ethanol subsidies which he knew wouldn't be popular in Iowa, so hopefully that indicates he has a backbone. He is the husband of one wife. And he was raised in a Pentecostal Church so surely knows the Scriptures. Hopefully, Holy Spirit will bring them to his remembrance if he becomes President.
I must say that I nearly changed my vote for Trump because others blamed him for the riots surrounding his meetings even though I had said I would never vote for him. Why wasn't Cruz strong enough to call it for what it was instead of taking a cheap shot at the forerunner?
It was almost a tipping point for Trump but as I weighed the evidence, Cruz got my vote even though he has never been my favorite candidate. I will continue to pray that the right person wins the Presidency.
I have always admired Bill Bennett, though, so here is his take on the Trump phenomena.
