Americans have short memories. We elected our current president because he dazzled us and got us all hyped up with the "hope and change" slogan. This year, it is the celebrity Donald Trump who dazzles us and gets us all hyped up with his "make American great again" slogan.
At least then Sen. Barack Obama gave us a specific warning that he was going to "fundamentally change America." Trump vaguely promises, "You're going to like what I will do as president." We have no idea what that means.
We don't know whether Trump understands the Constitution is an instrument for the people to restrain the government. He appears to share Obama's disdain for Congress. If Trump were elected, will we get another arrogant socialist, or worse, a dictator?
Never miss a local story.
We cannot afford to have another neophyte in the White House. Obama has shredded the Constitution on so many levels that it will take a principled and competent patriot, with a serious commitment to the Constitution, to structurally restore the federal government to its original form.
Another important consideration: The next president will probably have four nominations for the Supreme Court.
Please consider either Sen. Ted Cruz or Dr. Ben Carson. Both are highly capable conservatives, serious patriots, dedicated to the U.S. Constitution and well-suited for the job.
