Hey Cruz and Rubio: Flip a Coin

I’m a Cruz supporter. Spoke on his behalf at my Iowa caucus. I think he’s the best candidate in the race, and its not even close.

That being said, Donald J. Trump is an unmitigated disaster for the constitution, conservatism, the Republican party and the country. If the non Trump vote continues to be split, we stand a real chance of giving him the nomination.

This will likely hand the presidency to a communist, a socialist or a dirt bag.

There is one solution. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz lock themselves into a room and hash out a deal to save us from certain doom. Cruz could promise Rubio the vice presidency, Rubio could promise Cruz a supreme court appointment, the vice presidency or both. Trouble is, neither one has any leverage over the other at this point. They are tied. Its a stalemate.

There is, however, a tried and true method for ending such stalemates. This method has the advantage of being directed by Almighty God and approved by Him for such cases. Consider the following descriptions of this solution from the Bible:

Proverbs 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.

Proverbs 18:18 The lot puts an end to quarrels and decides between powerful contenders.

Joshua 14:2 Their inheritance was by lot, just as the Lord had commanded by the hand of Moses for the nine and one-half tribes.

1 Samuel 14:42 Then Saul said, “Cast the lot between me and my son Jonathan.” And Jonathan was taken.

Jonah 1:7 And they said to one another, “Come, let us cast lots, that we may know on whose account this evil has come upon us.” So they cast lots, and the lot fell on Jonah.

Luke 1:9 According to the custom of the priesthood, he was chosen by lot to enter the temple of the Lord and burn incense.

Acts 1:26  And they cast lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

That’s right. Casting lots – the modern day equivalent is flipping a coin. Think about it. Its tails we win, heads we win. Or tails Donald loses, Heads Donald loses. You can even throw in some sweet irony due to Trump’s casino investments if you like.

Marco, Ted, if you’re out there, give this some prayer.

Anyone got a better idea?
