    Many of the candidates currently running have received criticism from Sowell in prior columns, but none more than Donald Trump. Sowell’s criticism was featured in National Review’s now-famous (or infamous) issue “against Trump.”

    In his latest column which follows the death of Scalia, titled “Tragedy and Choices,” Sowell writes the following:

    If, by some miracle, Trump became president, what kind of president would he be? Do we need another self-centered know-it-all in the White House to replace the one we have now?

    Among the other Republican candidates, Dr. Ben Carson is a monumental figure in his field, and he is clearly revered even by people who would not vote for him. But votes are how elections are decided.

    The governors among the Republican candidates can at least be judged by how their track record stands up in running a governmental organization. So can Senator Ted Cruz, who was solicitor general in Texas. But Senator Marco Rubio has no comparable experience — and his inexperience has shown up in his abortive attempt to join Democrats in promoting amnesty.


    If the Republicans are to avoid having Donald Trump lead them — and the country — to disaster, they are going to have to have the majority of non-Trump supporters get behind some given candidate.

    Senator Ted Cruz has been criticized in this column before, and will undoubtedly be criticized here again. But we can only make our choices among those actually available, and Senator Cruz is the one who comes to mind when depth and steadfastness come to mind.

    Voting is only for people that what to be citizens of Washington DC. You have given up all your legal rights as a man or woman when you register to vote.

    All over America. America was corporatized in 1791 and the districts were over laid on the states. You have no U.S. constitutional rights, zero.

    Back to the OP ...

    Interesting. That is a big endorsement. So far, he has not had very many of these -- and still has no endorsement from any active congressman/woman, senator or governor. That concerns me. Supposedly, these would be some of the people that would know him best.

    It is in fact the reason I want him. The power base currently in their is the problem. Why would they endorse someone who will work to take that away?
