Why I'm not #NEVERTRUMP

I worked hard to get Cruz the nomination. Candidates like Cruz are the reason I volunteer my time as a county Republican central committee chair (I may not be one for much longer, but that’s another diary). I spoke for Cruz at my caucus. Worked at events, vetted candidates, spent money, etc. I put in many hours for this.

I am bitterly disappointed at the outcome.

I’m not sure who will win the general election. Could be the pop-cultural rot will win out and Trump will get it. Could be that the Marxist rot will win out and Clinton will get it. One conclusion I have come to: America deserves either of these 2 candidates.

That brings me to #NEVERTRUMP.

I had real reasons for supporting Cruz over Trump. They had nothing to do with political calculations and everything to do with principles. I will NEVER GIVE UP THE FIGHT to see those principles maintained/restored in our local, state and federal governments. Therefore I can’t give up now. The Trump that we now know is totally and utterly unfit for any office of civil leadership, but we still cannot abandon the cause. This dilemma has a solution. But its not #NEVERTRUMP, rather it is #REPENTTRUMP.

That’s right, there is a condition under which I’d support Donald J. Trump for President:

#REPENTTRUMP from your fornication, adultery, philandering, strip club ownership, escort service association and lust.

#REPENTTRUMP from your use of government power for advantage through bribery and eminent domain use.

#REPENTTRUMP from your insults, back-biting and lies.

Acknowledge, apologize, and turn.

“Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die?…” Ezekiel 33:11.

#REPENTTRUMP is a better outcome for Donald Trump, the Republican party, the conservative movement and the American Republic.

Oh, while we’re at: #REPENTUSA. ‘Cause that’s really the only way out of this mess.
