Kendal Unruh is a good personal friend.
I say that as a reminder to those who know me well, and might decide to ‘beat her up verbally’ on my post. Don’t. Just don’t. I have the power of the delete button, and I’m not afraid to use it.
That said, I’m going to quote her recent post as a reminder of the importance of using the #VoteConscience reality that has been going around the net for a good three months now. Kendal was the woman who led the WalkOut from Colorado at the GOP Convention this year.
To answer the question raging around the internet, “What if Cruz endorses Trump?” If that is the reflection of his conscience after prayer and examining his heart, he is answerable only to the Lord for his vote. If he decides to, there is already a “ha ha, gotcha!” vibe brewing around social media. I will be disappointed if he does, but that is exactly what voting conscience is all about. His decision will not deter my conscience one iota. That freedom to not demand everyone else vote to reflect MY conscience is precisely the liberty of conscience Trump and his supporters will never understand. They incessantly demand that my vote reflect their conscience and that is tyranny. #voteyourconscience
So what if Ted Cruz endorses or votes for Trump?
So much conjecture and discussion about his vote, and where it should go. Yet, those who seem determined to tell him where to place it are supporting #VoteConscience
This has been a rather challenging week. I’ve worked with a variety of political players who have strong values and ideas of who they should be voting for and how others should vote. I’m a believer in the #VoteConscience cause, and I’m Voting for Trump. My concern isn’t so much at this point of getting a conservative in the office – that isn’t going to happen. There are no conservatives running. But rather my concern is having a country at the other end of this election where we have an opportunity to put a conservative into office.
I tend to study the vote…
Conservatives, and those in the Republican Party didn’t Elect Trump at the Primary Election, or Convention. His nomination came from middle of the road and liberals who jumped the fence to vote in the GOP Primary. A good number of those were probably Hillary supporters who knew she had the fix on Bernie and there would be no doubt she’d win the Democrat Vote, and I’m well aware of that, as are they. They’re counting on nobody knowing that when they arrive at the polls in November to cast their vote for the General Election.
And since Conservative #NeverTrump Patriots are dogmatically set against anyone of Trump’s Ilk ‘representing them’ in office, they won’t vote for him. Those voters who crossed the fence to vote in the primary won’t be voting for him. The Liberal Machine that Ric-Rolled Bernie Sanders is planning to Ric-Roll Trump right out of the election.
There are even #neverTrump voters screaming #voteConscience who will be voting for Hillary Clinton. Now if that don’t rock your boat, you’d better be wearing a life jacket, because you’re SINKING.
You CAN NOT Vote Hillary and convince me that your conscience is telling you to do that. Not happening. I won’t believe a word you say, and you’ll have lost my trust forever. Your credibility is history.
My point here is that whoever Ted Cruz decides to vote for is his personal choice, and if he decides to support Trump, I’m with him 100%, because really – there is no other option at this point.
I’m still trying to understand WHO, knowing the options were Hillary or Trump, would think that their conscience was telling them to vote for anyone other than Trump. #VoteConscience.
To quote Kendal, again, “That freedom to not demand everyone else vote to reflect MY conscience is precisely the liberty of conscience.”
