    Robertsons Explain Support for Cruz, Trump

    Video at source link.

    25 Jan 2016

    “Duck Dynasty” stars Phil and Willie Robertson gave their reasons for supporting Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and real estate mogul Donald Trump, respectively, on Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity.”

    Phil said, “the writer of our Constitution, James Madison, said this constitution was written for a moral and religious people. It’s wholly inadequate for any other. So I just looked at Cruz. He stood out in my mind as being a moral and religious man. I thought to myself, ‘Good enough for me.’ It’s about that simple on my part.”

    Willie stated, “I think our system is — honestly, I think it’s broken and I think a lot of the politicians are just more of the same, and I want somebody in there who can shake it up, who can change it up, who are not after the money, and, you know, after people telling them what to say. And I like a man who puts his money where his mouth is, and pays for his own thing, and he’s not in debt to anybody, and says, ‘Hey, I’m going to do what I’m going to do.’ I think he’s the man for the job. He’s run a business and I think, you know, so many of these people come in. They’ve never run a business. They don’t know what they’re doing when they get there, and I just like somebody who’s run a business, especially New York City. I think that’s an advantage. I think you couldn’t be that successful in New York City without having to be able to work with different kinds of people, and I think he’s done that and I think he will actually work with other people.”

    In my view they both made a wise choice, one they felt suited both their individual needs. In the end I for sure will be supporting one of their choices. Just haven't quite decided which way to swing yet.

    At first Trump was my guy, but the more I've learned the more doubtful I've become of the true motivations behind his many promises (it's a trust thing). Additionally, the "expedited return of the good ones" weighs heavy on me. If he's sincere about that, it's amnesty. Cruz on the other hand has seemed more statesman like to me and is pretty much promising a lot of the same things Trump is with the exception of "expedited" returns. No he hasn't promised to rid us of 30 million illegals in less than two years, but that's not a really an issue with me because I think such a task is extremely unrealistic. Our problem didn't happen overnight and it's not going to get fixed overnight. Cruz's past attempt at tripling work visas does concern me, but he has since come out and promised that's not going to happen.

    Oh, and Trump's continuous boast of being a "deal maker" also gives me pause. I worry about anyone that is eager to deal with liberals on issues such as immigration and border security. Another huge worry of mine concerning Trump is his two potential nominations for the U.S. Supreme Court. At least with Cruz I have an idea of what we would get, with Trump it's anyone's guess.
