A majority of English colonies, if you look past their misjudgment of the weather based on latitude, had excellent geographic locations in the minds of explorers. Perhaps the nonexistent Northwest Passage would be right around the next mountain range or Indian tribe! Well, as we know today, it wasn’t, and European explorers would continue to look haphazardly for this passage to the Pacific until the 1850s when a major British exploration led by John Franklin (1786 – 1847) vanished in the Arctic, never to be seen alive again.
The evangelical candidates are like cicadas in a sense. They’re super annoying and scream loudly for an election cycle, and then they die off really fast. Huckabee no longer matters, Santorum is more irrelevant now than he’s ever been, and Cruz is following suit after only lasting in this race long enough because of Donald Trump. In either 2020 or 2024, Ted Cruz will run again. He’ll run for president again, thinking he has a chance at victory just like Huckabee and Santorum think they themselves do. And guess what — just like Huckabee and Santorum before him, Ted Cruz will NEVER do as well as he did his first time around. The evangelical vote has a weird thing about failures when it comes to their candidates, and they’ll turn to someone new before ever dawning the Cruz Crew button on their Sunday’s Best.
