Sadly, many GOP voters willingly support a candidate who rarely mentions the Constitution and whose core principles and values still remain a mystery.

Americans have short memories. We elected our current president because he dazzled us and got us all hyped-up with the “hope and change” slogan. This year, it is the celebrity Donald Trump who dazzles us and gets us all hyped-up with his “make America great again” slogan.

At least Sen. Obama gave us a specific warning that he was going to “fundamentally change America.” Donald Trump vaguely promises “you’re going to like what I will do as president.” We have no idea what that means.

We don’t know whether Trump understands the Constitution is an instrument for the people to restrain the government. He appears to share President Obama’s disdain for the Congress. If Mr. Trump were elected, would we get another arrogant socialist, or worse, a dictator?

We cannot afford to have another neophyte in the White House. President Obama has shredded the Constitution on so many levels that it will take a principled and competent patriot, with a serious commitment to the Constitution, to structurally restore the federal government to its original form. Another important consideration: The next president could well have four nominations for the Supreme Court.

Please consider either Sen. Ted Cruz or Dr. Ben Carson. Both are highly capable conservatives and serious patriots who are dedicated to the U.S. Constitution and well-suited for the job.
