Compassionate conservatives are officially an endangered species in our modern day Republican party. Conservatives no longer want to help people while staying out of affairs — they want to destroy those who need help while staying out of everything. That’s one of the main reasons why the Republican Party is practically defunct.
Now that evangelical Ted Cruz is out of the Republican race, we have to wonder where all that support will go. With 546 delegates claimed by the Cruz camp and the Republican nomination down to the presumptive and destructive Donald Trump and 1-for-38 John Kasich, the Cruz camp is going to have to go somewhere.
This last ditch effort to lead the Republican Party to a contested convention was announced by both Cruz and Kasich within mere minutes of each other. According to their statements, Cruz is focusing his efforts on Indiana, the home of the second iteration of the Ku Klux Klan and a severely important Republican platform with 57 delegates up for grab, while Kasich hones in on Oregon and New Mexico – two states that equal 52 delegates on the conservative’s side (28 in the former and 24 in the latter).
