Ted Cruz: An American in Israel plea – Please Unite Our Party, Support Trump!

We are living in dangerous times today. Americans who normally do not participate in politics are now stepping up to the plate and taking a stand. GOP primaries have come to an end and right now the GOP has never been so divided. Friendships have ended. Alliances have been broken. The GOP is crumbling before our own eyes.

Senator Ted Cruz, in the beginning of this truly important election, you were my first candidate of choice. I’m not sure if you knew I was the one strong supporter, the one American in Israel who had your back. I defended you over ridiculous scandals (like the one about the antisemitic preacher.) I have written plenty of articles saying why you should be the Republican nominee. The majority of “We the People” thought differently and felt America needed a different kind of candidate.

After you suspended your campaign declaring you will not come back unless you see a path to victory, and it looks like you still do not have one, I have decided to endorse Donald Trump. Donald Trump is not perfect by far, but he loves America as well as Israel. I have done my own vetting and soul searching and talking with mentors of mine who are very, very conservative. I’ve made my own decision to endorse and campaign for him.

It’s been a tough couple of months. I’ve lost friendships from fellow Cruz supporters over my decision which I felt was best for United States. Maybe America is not ready yet for a principled candidate like yourself, but we need a strong, tough son of a gun, take no crap leader who can get us out of this mess which Obama put us in with failed leadership. Trump might not admit it, but he needs your support. The whole GOP needs your support.

I personally feel you can unite our party under your leadership with your support to Donald Trump. Maybe even be a spiritual guide to him. I don’t think we can win this election without your support and the support from all conservatives. We can’t afford another 4 years of an Obama Administration. You know, and we all know, if Hillary Clinton gets in office, I truly feel there will be more Islamic terror attacks.

Ted Cruz I implore you to be the one to unite us all and help Make America Great Again.
