It’s Time for America to Unite Behind Ted Cruz

The establishment in D.C. — and the media, for that matter — just don’t get it. They have theirs and, quite frankly, could care less about you and your family.

Ted Cruz had great results on Super Tuesday, with definitive wins in Alaska, Oklahoma and Texas. The actual delegate numbers as of now are Trump 285, Cruz 161, Rubio 87, Kasich 25 and Carson 8. This is truly a two-man race. And it is time for everyone to get out of their dream world and recognize this. Every candidate without a mathematical path to victory must get out and unite behind one candidate.

The establishment wants Marco Rubio to be that guy because he has played in the government. He’s become one of them, and the elites in Washington have no intention of changing the status quo. But Marco Rubio has become part of the problem, entrenched with the establishment.

If you’ve ever been to Washington, D.C., you know the architecture of the buildings. These guys go to work every day in historic buildings and say, ‘Dig me. Look how important I am.’ And some people in the government actually believe, ‘This is never going away. We’ll never lose this. We’ve been through worse times than this.’ No, we haven’t. Nineteen trillion dollars in debt? No, we haven’t. The public as angry as they are now? No, we haven’t. The only other time it’s been like this was the Civil War. You couple the Civil War with $19 trillion in debt, and it doesn’t last.

I heard on Fox News this morning, and I think it was in Oklahoma and Texas, people voted for Cruz because they want an outsider because the government doesn’t work. And at Fox News, of all places, they said, ‘Well, that’s crazy because he’s part of the government.’ No, he’s not part of the government as people understand it. He is fighting the government, as people understand it.

As an “outsider,” if Ted Cruz were to get out of the race, many of his voters and numbers would go to Donald Trump, the other “outsider.” Nobody is saying that about Marco Rubio. The vast majority of Rubio’s votes would go to Cruz.

Here’s the way to do it: Ted Cruz should request a meeting with them. (They won’t meet with him because they’re all too egotistical right now. They all believe that they’re somehow or another going to pull this miracle off.) Ted Cruz should offer them — either in a private meeting or on the air — to make Marco Rubio his vice president. He should offer to make Ben Carson my HHS person or his Surgeon General. He should offer to make Rand Paul his Treasury Secretary. But, the point is, he should say we’re going to move together as one. Because together as one, we can change the world.

For the good of the nation, for those people who say that Trump cannot be the president, Marco Rubio needs to get out of the race. Ted Cruz is the only one that can beat Donald Trump, and he’s the only one that will beat Hillary Clinton. And that’s not me — those are the polls.

The candidates and the establishment need to put the people ahead of their own wants and desires. They need to put the right thing for our nation ahead of their own needs and desires. And that’s really hard to do. It takes a man of great character to do it.

As I sit in Washington, D.C., I can see the skyline. I’ll bet most people don’t even know why this isn’t a huge skyline. Everything is so expensive in Washington, D.C., and you know how to reduce the costs? You build taller buildings. So, why don’t they build taller buildings in Washington, D.C.? It’s the Washington Monument.

The buildings in D.C. are low because of the monument to George Washington. This man and his integrity, his love of country and his willingness to serve his entire life at his own expense must be remembered and must be honored. And so we don’t let any of the buildings pass the height of the Washington Monument.

But that lesson is forgotten. Too many people don’t look to the giants of the past and say, ‘This is really about serving people. This is about the people who are struggling every single day. This is about those people that in the winter have a house and put a blanket across the hallway because they can’t afford to heat the whole house.’

We have to start thinking about those people, not the people who are in limousines, not the people who are flying on their private jets, not the people who are going to make it.

If the GOP wants to survive, they better start moving as one.

Ted Cruz can beat Donald Trump. If ‘We, the People’ move as one and unite behind Ted Cruz, he can beat Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. He’s the only one who can — and the American people are the only ones who can put him in that position. Because the Washington elite and the government just don’t get it.
