Ted Cruz 'for a time such as this' ~ By Matt Barber

Matt Barber explains why he's taking unusual action to endorse in primary

A time such as this that is now here! 

With so many candidates that were running for the Republican Party nomination, well, of course there will be Republican voters with different views, and that was pretty much the case in the Iowa Caucuses.  But now, with Iowa out of the way, and as the nomination process progresses, even more of the nominee hopefuls have dropped out.  The truth is, the number of plausible candidates is down to three: Trump, Cruz, and Rubio.

So let's be honest, Cruz and Rubio are neck and neck, but with both of them still in the race, they will continue to help keep Donald in the lead.
Jesus warned: “If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand” (Mark 3:25). Nothing has borne out this reality in recent decades like that exasperating spectacle called the Republican presidential primary. These last few GOP horse races have been jam-packed with would-be conservative and faithfully Christian presidents who, after infighting with largely simpatico opponents, have canceled each other out, limped off to lick their wounds and left the perpetually underwhelmed GOP base to stay home and not vote for “imminently electable” establishment paragons like Presidents Dole, McCain and Romney. Divide and conquer. That’s how the “moderate” GOP establishment plays the primary.

And then they lose the general.

Albert Einstein famously quipped that the definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” In that sense, we conservatives are insane.

How about trying something new?
There is really only one way that anybody but Trump could win the GOP nomination right now. That is if there was just one candidate left for Trump to face. There is a good chance that Cruz could stay in the race, and that is if he wins in Texas on Super Tuesday (March 1, 2016). There is a really good chance that Rubio will not win in Florida, his home state. I believe that if Carson, Kasich and Rubio all drop out, at least following Super Tuesday, and endorse Cruz, Ted would have a good chance to win the nomination. My recommendation would be that they drop out before Tuesday and support Cruz.

Matt Barber is absolutely correct, something must happen in order to stop Donald Trump. If your Spanish is really all that good, Senador Marco Rubio, you should understand this: Un momento como este que ahora está aquí.

Ted Cruz 'for a time such as this'

I've never formally endorsed a candidate in any presidential primary. This time the stakes are too high not to. Look around. The world is on fire and the party of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, not to mention the GOP's Obama-enabling RINO establishment, are playing with gasoline. And so, while he's been among my top picks…
