The #NeverTrumps – The REAL Anger in the GOP


This morning I woke up to a post on FB from a Trump supporting friend, urging me to quit being stubborn with all of the #NeverTrump stuff. The gist of it was that I MUST support Trump if he is the Republican nominee and that my unwillingness to do so will lead to a Clinton presidency-an evil that will fall directly on MY shoulders.

Uhm, wrong.

The GOP has been an utter failure for the last seven years.  Distraught by watching a democrat controlled House, Senate, and President dismantle and attempt to “fundamentally transform” our great nation into a corrupt, socialist dystopia, conservatives rallied in great numbers sending a mandate as we backed Republicans who promised that they would stop this destruction.  Not only have they failed in this task, they have openly embraced these same policies, caring only for their own personal power and influence.  

My party has shown no loyalty to me as it ushered in Obamacare. It offered show votes when they could have de-funded it, and criticized Ted Cruz, the one person who tried to stop it.

My party has shown no loyalty to me as it stood by, thumbs in pockets, allowing an influx of refugees and illegal immigrants who receive more benefits than my own children.  Instead of standing up for Americans, my party offered tacit approval while democrats called me racist and intolerant for daring to question.

My party has shown no loyalty to me as they supported the Omnibus, gave billions to Iran, left hostages to rot in prison cells, held dramatic hearings on Benghazi and an email scandal that ultimately led to nothing.  Many people lied, while four men died.  Where is the outrage? It’s business as usual as they rally to protect one of their own, one of the ruling class elites.  

Where was their loyalty to me as I sat by helpless, watching the national debt go through the ceiling, watching millions of Americans leave the workforce either by layoffs or because it has just become more affordable to watch soaps and allow Uncle Sam to worry about the bills?

Where was their loyalty to me when they increased welfare handouts and disability benefits by skyrocketing numbers, or when they watched our national credit score drop?

Where was their loyalty to me as they supported huge government bailouts to their crony capitalist buddies, while watching the VA crumble and our veterans die?

Where was their loyalty to me as they gave guns to Mexican cartels without investigation, and then blamed law abiding gun owners each and every time some form of gun violence occurred?

Where was their loyalty to me as we watched terrorism get labeled “workplace violence,” and allowed ISIS to grow into a gargantuan threat simply to save political face?

Where was their loyalty to me when the IRS targeted conservative groups and harassed small business owners who dared to protest unbridled government regulations that destroyed their years of hard work as many closed their businesses forever?

Certainly I can go on, but let me assure you, the GOP had their hand in each and every one of these total failures either by helping or simply refusing to interfere. Sure, I saw Boehner’s crocodile tears as he snuggled up in a warm embrace with Pelosi, and I saw Ryan’s gleaming, crocodile grin as he assured us that you just wait until next time, because then he will get things done.

Yet I’m to blame?

Last Tuesday we watched state after state succumb to the Trump fever, edging out the only conservative and certainly the only constitutional conservative left in this race-Ted Cruz.   State after state blindly voted for a man whose entire campaign has revolved around bigotry, insults, bribery and childishness.

Yet I’m to blame?

Certainly the GOP recognizes its catastrophic failures, and they made certain to send me an email with that near exact opening phrase, but then had the audacity to ask me for money-because THAT’s how we can erase the last seven plus years.  They have even gone so far as to assure me that giving them money will help Ted Cruz; a candidate that they have ignored, belittled and lambasted simply because he wouldn’t stand by idly as they burned this country down for their own personal agendas. A candidate that they have demanded apologize to “them” for calling them out on their lies.

Yet I’m to blame?

Not only has the GOP torn open the wound, they have poured a mixture of salt and rubbing alcohol into it and then lit it on fire. Just as I was certain that there was nothing left they could compromise-no other defeat, deflection and denial they could torture me with, they surprise me again by allowing a lifelong liberal progressive to run as a Republican for the presidency of the United States.

Yet I’m to blame?

I watch as this orange tyrant, the personification of Washington cronyism, stands at a podium promising to build a wall- that’s where the betrayal REALLY begins. Now the embarrassed shame I have for my party, transfers over into the embarrassed shame I have for the American public.

Filled with anger and animosity for the GOP, over the countless broken promises, the American voters have decided that an elitist billionaire with a lifetime of immoral and unethical decisions is not only fit to lead this great nation, but will be its savior!

This man, who openly and unabashedly supported all of the major players who sabotaged our present and much of our future, is suddenly going to do a 180 and like a knight in shining armor, rush in to our rescue? You choose to vote for a man on a hope, like those who supported Obama, yet you trust Trump to march in and clean house, despite the fact that he admits he will do no such thing.   Trump has stated he will make deals, negotiate, compromise, because “we’ve got to get things done,” and like the Obama supporters you once criticized, you believe him.

Yet it’s my fault?

You vote for a man who belittles and objectifies women, a quality that you would punch anyone else’s lights out for had it been your wife or your daughter he was speaking about.

You vote for a man who spouts off bigoted and racist remarks, despite understanding the position of our nation against the rest of the world, and you applaud him for it.

You vote for a man that thinks making fun of the disabled (for their disability) is acceptable as long as they’ve hacked him off.

You vote for a man who freely admits that he doesn’t ask for forgiveness for sins, a prerequisite for any Christian religion, and then cry “glasshouses and stones” when someone like me points it out.

You vote for a man who thinks anyone who disagrees with him is unfair, who refuses to debate people who can and will make him look foolish, who thinks CPAC owes him special favors, all of which means he thinks he’s too good to have to answer to you.

You vote for a man who is openly buying this election through paying off media, promising cabinet positions for endorsements, running round the clock propaganda sites to confuse and trick you, and reminding everyone with whom he has ever made a donation to, that he’s coming to their city too.  

You vote for a man who, along with Hillary, has questionable ties to Soros, has the shadiest personal history of anyone that has ever run for the presidency; a man who can’t even articulate a single plan in regards to foreign policy, an issue you claim is critical by your polling.

You vote for a man who changes his mind on a whim, who not only has been a former liberal, but from his mouth to your ears, still supports a largely liberal agenda.

You vote for a man who barely even mentions the constitution and even threatens to alter it by squashing free speech against him and by instilling a healthcare plan left of Obamacare-to name a couple.

You vote for a man who loves money more than your life, and speaks about himself in an almost godlike way, but you refuse to compare him to communist rulers because it’s not nice.

You vote for a man whose speech calls for violence-who threatens the GOP with riots and you say, “About time.”

You vote for a man that asks you to pledge to him, when the only thing he has pledged to you for certain is that he has zero problem changing his mind about anything and everything, sometimes within the exact same speech.

You vote for this man, who is the exact polar opposite of what is good for this country and for our children, not because he has experience (since he doesn’t), not because he is presidential (because he isn’t), not because he brings in a meaningful conservative agenda (because he hasn’t), but because you HOPE he will get the job done.

You vote for a man that makes fun of you, of all of us, and you pretend you don’t get the joke.

You vote for a man who CANNOT beat Hillary, according to almost every poll, no matter how much common core math you apply.


Yet I’m at fault for not wanting to take that sort of gamble with all of our lives?


You have forced this issue upon us, Trump voters, not the other way around! If you worked for Trump, he’d fire you for being so willfully ignorant!

You somehow think my lack of support for a candidate as vile as Donald Trump makes me a traitor? That it’s my unwillingness to cooperate that will usher in a Hillary victory? 

It is your vote and your candidate that will do that, and I will not be saddled with the responsibility. I will not give into peer pressure from the GOP or from you, Trump voter, to compromise my beliefs YET AGAIN, for the sake of seeing your tantrum run its course.

‘I have watched you support Trump over Ted Cruz for ridiculous reasons, none of which are based on facts or voting records, and are nothing more than one of the many lies you hear in a Donald Trump sound bite.  You scoff at his resume, mock his appearance, and ignore his superior voting record and commitment to God and family.  

The establishment despises Cruz and does everything in its power to guarantee that anyone other than him takes the presidency.  Yet you ignore all these facts, even when Donald confirms them himself.  

You still believe that it’s Trump not Cruz that the establishment really fears. Yet, in your mind, I’m to blame?

Trump voters, you’re right about one thing: there is a deep anger growing and a desire to give this country back to God’s people, to red-blooded patriots. As much as I cringe to think Cruz will not run third party, that he will not break his word to save the republic from a certain doom, it is also this very reason why I love him so dearly. These are the traits of an honest and steadfast leader who refuses to lower his standards and disregard his principles for any reason. Isn’t that what we need?

Where you Trump voters are mistaken, however, is that it won’t be your misplaced anger that is going to lead this country into a revolution. It is ours!  

The #NeverTrumps, will tear the heart out of the GOP, with or without your help. It is this sorrowful day in history, when millions of us will scream loudly, “GOP, we don’t want your establishment RINO Kasich, we don’t want your third party hack jumping in the convention, and we will not tolerate a liberal and unpredictable Trump because he doesn’t speak for us, he doesn’t share our values, nor has he proven his worth.”

Despite how Dr. Carson feels, four years is plenty of time to crush a nation. The GOP is working feverishly to prevent the day of reckoning because they’re too stubborn to realize it is ALREADY here. It’s #CruzOrLose.

Trump is the least of your worries, GOP. You can take that to the bank.

So please, Trump voter, don’t blame the #NeverTrumps for your compromise. I’ll write in Ted Cruz. I’ll sleep just fine, and when I wake up to see my freedoms vanquished, I’ll lay the blame squarely on YOU.

    Hear that? That’s ME – jumping up and down, punching my fist in the air, applauding and hooting for this commentary!

    1. Russ Kendall

      That was kinda my sentiments. Well said and well vented. I am with you (and Ted Cruz).

      1. Leslie C

        Agree, agree, agree!!!!!!

        1. belinda

          this article is totally correct and needed in every way but ONE. It’s SARAH PALIN who despite her momentary lapse of sanity supporting this vile con artist is the ONLY one real Christian Conservatives are supporting and although yes I’ve shared this article every where I corrected it to reflect that FACT.

          1. Kyle Lyles

            Uh no. Grandma Sarah is a lunatic tax and spend Liberal who jumped on the Tea Party movement after her failed mess w/McInsane just to gain attention. She should have gone back to being a weather girl rather than promoting her Jerry Springer dysfunctional family.

  2. Brian Corbino

    Yes, I do blame you.

    Because if Trump wins, the GOP is destroyed, and we MIGHT have a chance of building a party that actually respects and honors the Constitution in its place.

    But if Cruz wins, then the GOP is saved, and goes on to sell us out incrementally to the left.

    GOP Delenda Est.

    1. Crystal

      I see where you are trying to go but you’re forgetting one important detail. Trump WILL burn it down, but he is a liberal. I’m not sure what good blowing up the GOP does, when you’re replacing it with something even further left. So that’s a great plan if you’re a democrat. Thanks but no thanks.

      1. Beth fisher

        Sorry you feel that way but the GOP gave up on us a long time a go. They gave Obama everything he wanted. Where were the you then?

        1. Julie Stoddard

          Actually I don’t care if the GOP is saved, I want the Constitution and it’s great principles saved. Trump is not a Constitutionalist, Cruz is. That is why, #NEVERTRUMP for me! I would rather have Cruz in a Constitution Party!

        2. Matthew whitlock

          Beth are you aware of who Mr. Trump is ? Donald Trump said he would appoint his sister to the supreme court who is a big time Liberal who is a against the second amendment and who is also for abortion and other Liberal views, Donald Trump also said in a video that Obama is a good president, Mr. Trump also changed his stance on immigration and he also stated in an interview years ago if he would of ran as a Republican he would win in this case his is right now, He said the Republican Base is stupid and believes everything they hear on Fox news. and he also compared Ben Carson to a child molester. Mr. Trump also is verbally assaulting Megyn Kelly which is just wrong. some people want a king/dictator that’s who Donald trump is. Ted Cruz will be a president, Donald Trump also stated he would be neutral between Israel and Palestine Ted Cruz stated he will not be Neutral he will side With Israel. Donald Trump also stated he would try to change the first amendment freedom of the press so he could sue them if they “reported a false statement” or hurt his feeling pretty much and he also uses nasty language which is not appropriate. He also First ran for president in 2001 as a democrat and collected 14,000 votes or 15,000 and dropped out and switched parties FIVE times, and also donates to Democrats and people give excuses saying he’s a businessman i don’t see one donation to a Republican besides when he donation to the Gang of eight bill. and he also hangs out with George Soros they spent the night together on Christmas eve, so you tell me do you still support that man?

      2. Stephen Smith

        Trump is no liberal. You forget that even Reagan switched his party affiliation. Trump unites different people from all demographics. While he is far from perfect, he represents what most of us have thought for years. You Einsteins actually think Cruz can win? No freaking way-end of story. Forget about what the polls say-Trump will absolutely destroy that witch Hillary. I’ll take him any day, faults and all. Our Country’s future is at stake.

        1. Julie Fadoir

          Trump is NO Reagan. Read the article….Trump IS a Liberal.

        2. Matthew whitlock

          Reagan was a Conservative. Trump has always been a liberal; nothing has changed.

        3. Its Einstein’s like me (Millions of us) who didn’t vote for McCain or Romney because they were nothing but rhinos put up by the GOP. LoL you better watch the polls Because in our eyes trump really is the liberal (with a R by his name) That he has proven to be.. So go ahead and vote for Trump and you will get Hillary. We will sit back the same way you got Obama. One day you low information voters will wake up and realize. We will settle NO MORE for anything less then a real constitutional Conservative.. #NeverTrump #TruthHurtsTrump !

          1. See we were the ones at the rallies and fighting the fight while people like you were more interested in watching TV.. You want to act like your voting for trump because your MAD? We were the ones fighting the fight and there’s no way we will hand it to trump!

  3. Paul Lester

    Outstanding article.

  4. Matthew whitlock

    Great Post Go Ted Cruz!

  5. Beth Tumlin

    I’ve had the same said to me, I’ve had to get rid of some friends on FB, because of their vitriol towards me and my stance against Trump! Great post!

  6. Cheri Galvan

    This needs to be in every publication ready by every Drumpf supporter out there..This article is EXCELLENT! I get the same trash talk from my Drumpf friends, and will study this article until I have every single point down pat…If these people were really serious about changing Washington..they would be CRUZ supporters. Thank you for writing is how millions..and millions of us feel.

    1. Frances Hurdle

      I’m with you 100% This article is great. I feel the same way so many of you do. I will never vote for Trump. Ted Cruz is the only one of them all that is for the American people. He is the only one that is truthful in this race. He, Cruz has my vote for sure.

  7. micheal Hancock

    I’m in NEVER TRUMP!!! But I hope that you all will vote in the other elections because we are going to need to hold the other offices if Cruz doesn’t win this thing.

    1. Matthew whitlock

      I will be voting for other offices i will also write in Ted Cruz if he is not the nominee.

  8. Lisa G. Carter

    AWESOME!!! This is exactly how I feel and so many of us do!!! Thank you for a well articulate prospective on our plate!!! In GOD We Trust victory will be President Ted Cruz for our Constitutional freedom’s and right’s with every value and principles we hold dear!!! AMEN!

  9. Jackie I

    Exactly what I would have said were I able to articulate my feelings on this topic as well as you.

  10. JenniferWalker

    Wonderful article Crystal! I shared it to a few of the groups I belong to, hoping to educated a few people! 🙂

  11. Melissa

    Great article which I have shared on FB! This articulates everything I believe and that Trump supporters refuse to get. In the 2012 election Romney lost due to 4 million voters not voting for him because he was a moderate RINO. That number will pale in comparison if Trump is the nominee. We must pray that Cruz wins the nomination, and if he doesn’t. be prepared to take Hillary for four years for the sake of having a party that can beat her in 2020.

  12. Jason Jones

    One tiny little critique. It’s 180 not 360. Rest assured a Trump supporter would use that one tiny little misstep to try snd discredit an otherwise perfect piece.

    1. Crystal

      Duly noted and appreciated.

  13. Crystal

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. We are all in this together, for certain.

  14. Mark

    Wow! Brilliantly stated. You just put into words everything I’ve been saying for the last several months. Thank you for sharing! If Trump gets the nomination, I too will be writing in Cruz.

  15. Roger C D'Aquin

    This is a great article that expresses my feelings exactly. I will fight for Ted Cruz to win the Republican nomination until the bitter end. In the end, if Cruz is not the nominee, I owe the Republican party no loyalty. My loyalty to my creator, the constitution, and conservatism means that there is no way I can ever vote for Donald Trump.

  16. Darrell

    I endorse and agree with these sentiments 100%.

    Whenever some Trump Troll or Trollop regurgitates an admonition to support Trump, my response will be merely to link to this article.

  17. JS

    Excellent. Never Ever will I vote for that lover of Planned Parenthood New York liberal. His billions do not impress me.

  18. SA

    Excellent post. I agree 100% with what you have said. I’m also one of those who will Write in Ted Cruz for President.

  19. PA

    If Trump is the nominee, then who cares about winning the election? To be frank, I’d FAR rather have Hillary in the White House. At least she won’t set the streets afire with facial warfare and get pissed off one day and punch the nuclear button just for the #&* of it.

    And if the GOP supports Donald Trump, EVER, then it has ceased to be anything it ever was.

    I mean, seriously. At that point, just burn it all the hell down.

    Maybe something will rise from the ashes. Maybe a totally new party will form.

    I just no longer give a shit.

    1. Matthew whitlock

      If i understand this correctly, you are willing to lose the supreme court and let Trump shred the constitution, He’s a liberal, we sure as hell don’t want Hillary either, she would appoint Liberal supreme court justices like Trump will and Hillary will, Trump said he would appoint his sister to the supreme court who is a liberal. No thanks to Trump and a hell no to Hillary

  20. PA

    Obviously I meant “RACIAL warfare” above.


  21. ANG

    This is one of the Best Written piece’s that I have yet to see on How Many Americans are Truly feeling about Trump and his No Political Knowledge and all his Crazy Rants.
    This is Perfectly Stated as to how So many Americans are feeling.
    Thank you for putting it in writing and so simply put.

  22. LK Graham

    Outstanding Commentary! You echo many of our sentiments & I have shared it everywhere!

  23. Pam

    This is the most accurate, spot-on, absolutely best explanation of EXACTLY how I feel, too! You put my words out for all the world to see! I wish every Republican in Congress and every Trump supporter would read this entire article! Just saying THANK YOU doesn’t seem good enough! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!


    Tsk Tsk Alma Rose. This makes twice you were totally wrong.

  25. Rebekah Johannes

    This article is awesome!!! Exactly how my entire family & I feel!!! I’m with #NEVERTRUMPS also!! I’m a Christian & you can’t say you’re a Christian & vote for Trump!!! Plain & simple!!!

    1. Tim O'Brien

      So all the evangelicals who are going to support Trump are not christians? You do not define who and who is not eligible to be a christian. Get over yourself.

      1. That’s what you got out of that? You’re a joke Tim.

  26. MacWell

    For all of you Trump haters who believe he is the enemy, allow me to have you all ponder this; Donald Trump is exactly the kind of candidate the founders would’ve supported. Remember, our Congress was intended to be made up from a cross section of Americans, not just career politicians and lawyers. Anyone with 2 working brain cells can understand that America is broken. It’s been systematically dismantled and every custom, our heritage, and everything that made Americans and America great. The DC establishment has allowed this, both democrats and republicans. I like Ted Cruz, (for the record), I wanted to see him on the ticket with Trump. They would have made an unbeatable team against anyone the democrat party ran. Alas, that is not to be. Trump is an outsider, he isn’t a politician and therefore isn’t beholding to the PC police. It is also unfair to say that Trump hasn’t done anything about issues in the past. How could he, he wasn’t in a position to fix anything in government because he wasn’t in government. When he is and doesn’t fix something, then you can call him on it. The biggest reason I’d like to see a Trump Presidency is that he understands the following; “when a person, or group of people, openly declare that they will not abide by the laws and rules of a civilized society, then, like a tumor, that person, or group of people, MUST be removed from that society”
