The great divide of the GOP electorate started all the way back in 1992, when Republican Pat Buchanan and political outsider Ross Perot decided to challenge incumbent George H.W. Bush for the presidency. Bush managed to hang on to the GOP nomination, but Perot was able to take 19% of the vote as an Independent in the general election, allowing Bill Clinton to win the White House with only 43% of the popular vote.
The GOP electorate has been systematically divided into competing factions ever since. The GOP ran Sen. Bob Dole against Clinton in 1996. Dole and Clinton were essentially tied, 49.2% of the popular vote each… except Perot grabbed 8.4% of the GOP vote, allowing Clinton to win re-election and a second term.
Since 2000, the GOP establishment has been dead set on flooding the field with too many prospects and picking losers for their GOP presidential nominees. The presumed GOP favorite in 2000 was originally Sen. John McCain.
The 2000 GOP Primary field
1. John McCain
2. Steve Forbes
3. Gary Bauer
4. Orrin Hatch
5. Lamar Alexander
6. Pat Buchanan
7. Elisabeth Dole
8. John Kasich
9. Dan Quayle
10. Bob Smith
11. Herman Cain
12. George W. Bush
13. Alan Keyes
By mid-way through the primaries, everyone had dropped out except Bush, McCain and Keyes. Bush went on to win the GOP with 62% of the GOP vote, but the fracture in the GOP electorate would show in the general election when Democrat Al Gore won the popular vote by a half-million votes, but narrowly lost the Electoral College vote, making George W. Bush President.
In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, the GOP was much more united behind Bush for a period, as the nation recovered from the worst act of war on American soil since Pearl Harbor. So, Bush defeated John Kerry 50.7% to 48.3%.... The political divisions in the nation were galvanized and divisions in the GOP were about to get much worse.
By 2008, GOP divisions would become insurmountable. The GOP field…
1. John McCain
2. Mike Huckabee
3. Mitt Romney
4. Ron Paul
5. Fred Thompson
6. Alan Keyes
7. Duncan Hunter
8. Rudy Giuliani
9. Sam Brownback
10. Jim Gilmore
11. Tom Tancredo
12. Tommy Thompson
McCain won the GOP nomination with only 47.3% of the GOP vote. McCain then lost to a totally unknown nobody from nowhere with a blank résumé, Barack Obama, by a 52.9% to 45.7% margin… the GOP was perfecting the art of losing…
“A house divided against itself cannot stand."
In 2012, the worst President in U.S. history was re-elected for a second term. Again, it is due to the fact that the GOP establishment was totally committed to running another loser, Mitt Romney.
The 2012 GOP field
1. Mitt Romney
2. Rick Santorum
3. Ron Paul
4. Newt Gingrich
5. Buddy Roemer
6. Rick Perry
7. Tim Pawlenty
8. Gary Johnson
9. Michelle Bachmann
10. Herman Cain
11. Thaddeus McCotter
12. Jon Huntsman
Romney won the GOP nomination with only 40.7% of the GOP vote… a worse GOP showing than even John McCain in 2008. As a result, Romney went on to lose to Barack Obama in the general election, 51.1% to 47.2%...
1. Scott Walker
2. Donald Trump
3. Ted Cruz (ineligible)
4. Marco Rubio (ineligible)
5. Bobby Jindal (ineligible) (endorsed ineligible Rubio)
6. Mike Huckabee
7. John Kasich
8. Ben Carson
9. Jeb Bush
10. Rand Paul
11. Chris Christie (Endorsed Donald Trump)
12. Carly Fiorina
13. Rick Perry (endorsed ineligible Cruz)
14. Rick Santorum (endorsed ineligible Rubio)
15. Jim Gilmore
16. Lindsey Graham (endorsed Bush)
17. George Pataki (endorsed ineligible Rubio)
The GOP field is more divided than ever, and so is the GOP electorate.
As of today, Trump leads the race having won 12 state primaries, 3,596,663 votes and 391 delegates.
Ineligible Cruz is running second having won 6 states, 2,994,300 votes and 304 delegates.
Everyone is out of the race now, except Trump, Cruz, Kasich and Rubio…
The GOP establishment 1st choice was Jeb Bush, who was forced out of the race having received only 1.7% of the vote… a clear losing choice by the GOP establishment.
Then the GOP establishment shifted behind ineligible “anchor baby” Marco Rubio and their endorsement sunk the Rubio campaign instantly, like throwing a boat anchor to a drowning man… Marco will soon be forced to leave the race with only 10.11% of the votes secured.
That leaves business man Donald Trump and ineligible Canadian at birth Ted Cruz in the race for the GOP nomination. Continuing their trend of picking losers, I’m certain the GOP establishment will quickly endorse 2016 GOP establishment loser #3, Ted Cruz, in their effort to stop the conservative grassroots revolt that is the Trump Campaign. They are certain to toss Cruz a boat anchor any minute now…
Not only has the GOP elite made a habit of picking total losers, they have now perfected the art. They are no longer just running unqualified RINO losers like McCain and Romney, they have reached a new low by running totally ineligible frauds like Cruz and Rubio in their effort to throw the election to Democrats.
The Democrats see the U.S. Constitution as just a relic from history no longer of any use or value to our beloved Republic. Clearly, the GOP establishment now agrees with that view, running ineligible frauds like Cruz and Rubio on the GOP ticket as if the GOP and DNC are now one in the same, both destructive of the Constitutional Republic and favoring a globalist agenda.
And then there is Trump…
The GOP elite is in full scale panic mode… dragging old losers like Romney out of the dust bin and propping them up on camera to float the idea of a brokered convention, or maybe even a late entry to the race by either Romney or House Speaker Paul Ryan, both of whom have been rejected by the GOP electorate before…
They thought that getting Rubio to act like a preschooler in a sandbox on the debate stage would derail Trump… but it only served to sink Rubio.
They thought getting Ted, the biggest lying fraud on the GOP debate stage, to call Trump a liar and fraud would work. But it only made the Trump revolution even more angry and more committed to defeating the GOP establishment by any means necessary.
They thought getting their RNC friends, Beck, Levin, Napolitano, Limbaugh, O’Reilly and Kelly, in the so-called “conservative media” to attack Trump, to set “the Donald” up in “gotcha” questions at every debate, stacking the debate audiences with pro-establishment anti-Trump crowds to scream and boo in the background like a Jerry Springer audience, might work….
But no… the more they do to derail Trump, the more the tsunami of conservative anger grows…
How can they possibly miss the message at this point? The GOP establishment says “anyone but Trump,” going so far as to tell voters “it doesn’t matter who you vote for, as long as it is against Trump” – “even if you have to vote for Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton!”
The emperor has no clothes now…
People are not supporting Trump in droves because of who Trump is… They support him because of who he isn’t…. He isn’t “them.”
The establishment who has given conservative voters loser after loser after loser, no longer has any influence with conservative voters, and neither do their minions in the so-called “conservative media.” Trump supporters aren’t just voting for Trump… they are voting against everyone else with any connection to Washington D.C. or the D.C. elite on their résumé.
Unlike Democrat voters who don’t know and don’t care what a “natural born Citizen” is… Conservative voters do know and very much care. They are totally insulted and infuriated by the moronic effort of GOP establishment folks to pass off a Canadian from birth until May 2014 as a “natural born Citizen” of the United States, eligible for the Oval Office.
Trump backers are sick and tired of being sick and tired…
They are ready to take to the streets to stop Obama leftists from finishing off the United States… but they are ten-times as angry with D.C. Republicans, all of them, for allowing Obama & Co. to destroy our country without any effort by D.C. Republicans to stop him, much less hold Obama and his entire evil criminal cabal accountable.
Trump backers are the “conservative base” of the Republican Party. They want control of their party back, in order to retake control of their country…. And that is what scares the hell out of every D.C. establishment insider, both sides of the aisle.
The jig is up, as they say… The people (at least Trump supporters) have finally figured out that everyone in D.C. today should be on the unemployment line tomorrow morning. That includes the two Senate Republicans who have defrauded millions of American voters out of their money and votes, Cruz and Rubio.
I hope they throw everything including the kitchen sink at Trump… because the more they do it, the more the people rise up against them. No matter who or what Trump himself may be, one thing should be very clear to everyone in America by now….
Trump represents the conservative core of America…. And they mean business this time! It’s time to get on the bus, before you find yourselves under the bus!
NOTE: This is NOT a personal endorsement of Trump, as I do NOT endorse candidates. But this is my endorsement of the people waking up and standing up against the D.C. establishment that has been allowed to destroy our country from within for far too long, from both political parties!

Where is your proof that Cruz is ineligible?
I suggest you google JB Williams Peter.............he has several documented articles on "natural born citizen" and why Cruz in ineligible. You might also search through this site for many of his articles that have been posted.
Indeed. As a matter of fact, Mr. Cruz may well be holding his Senate seat illegally; there is no "proof" that he is an American citizen at all, much less "natural born"! Since renouncing his Canadian citizenship (cynically, in 2014), he might be a "man without a country" -- a citizen of the world, but not of any nation.
No he is legally a Senator due to the INA code. There is proof he is ok to be a Senator. He is identical to OBAMA. Have you see this???http://worldnewsdailyreport.com/kenya-authorities-release-barack-ob... Or this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzKsNLZ8qrE. Unless we removed OBAMA from being President we are going to pay for it the rest of America's life. Cruz was at least honest for he showed us his birth certificate. You have to have the state at this point question whether he can be on the ballot?? So far all states have caved just like the Republicans they send in to represent us!!! Here is what I am doing to put pressure on this fact of Cruz. I am voting for him to put stress on Trump so he will produce a lawsuit and make the Supreme court finally decide on this term of natural born citizen. We must put pressure on the one person who can make this happen. Ted is honest for he showed us his birth certificate. If OBAMA can run then so can Ted Cruz. See the problem??? This is all about one thing the President does and only the President does - Commander in Chief!!! What do you think of Obama as our current Commander in Chief and the comments the candidates state about "rebuilding our military". What does that say about O's job in this function??? What does that say about our security. Let me play you an ad that is going viral in Europe. Trump put this out and it is great! WATCH! Scroll down and watch this link. http://redstatewatcher.com/article.asp?id=5017
Kathryn........can you post Cruz birth certificate? I have never viewed it. Thanks.
Here it is, Harry.
Thank you for the Canadian evidence, I have not seen any citizenship papers related to his American citizenship. All I hear is that his mother was an American citizen making Ted a cirtizen. I would like to see the documentation of Cruz American citizenship.
There are only two ways to become a legal US Citizen... today 1) natural born Citizen, the natural child of a legal US Citizen father..... 2) citizen by US statute, an act of congress, including "citizen at birth" under the 14th Amendment or any other "naturalization" amendment, act or statute.
At the adoption of the US Constitution, there was one other way, to become a "citizen" via the adoption of the Constitution, as someone alive at that time, and naturalized by the adoption itself.
Our first nine presidents were all "citizens via the adoption" of the US Constitution. None of them were "natural born Citizens." The 10th, John Tyler, was the first "natural born Citizen" of the United States to occupy the Oval Office, the natural offspring of a legal US Citizen father born after the adoption in 1790.
He was not born in this country and his mother is the only one who MIGHT still be a citizen. His father was a Naturalized Citizen of Canada. Now here is the proof of why this is not a Natural born citizen. This man David Ramsay was a founder and a historian and wrote this essay in 1789. This was during the time of the founders who were born at this time. He has a better understanding of natural born than how we have corrupted this term. I will post the summary of the essay and then the real essay so you can see it.
Now read this case of Minor v. Happersett for the Chief Justice who wrote this opinion understands who citizens are and the different types of citizens.
This will be somewhat long so I am sorry. It is off the law.cornell.edu website which means they probably study this case.
For convenience it has been found necessary to give a name to this membership. The object is to designate by a title the person and the relation he bears to the nation. For this purpose the words "subject," "inhabitant," and "citizen" have been used, and the choice between them is sometimes made to depend upon the form of the government. Citizen is now more commonly employed, however, and as it has been considered better suited to the description of one living under a republican government, it was adopted by nearly all of the States upon their separation from Great Britain, and was afterwards adopted in the Articles of Confederation and in the Constitution of the United States. When used in this sense it is understood as conveying the idea of membership of a nation, and nothing more.
To determine, then, who were citizens of the United States before the adoption of the amendment it is necessary to ascertain what persons originally associated themselves together to form the nation, and what were afterwards admitted to membership.
Looking at the Constitution itself we find that it was ordained and established by "the people of the United States," [n3] and then going further back, we find that these were the people of the several States that had before dissolved the political bands which connected them with Great Britain, and assumed a separate and equal station among the powers of the earth, [n4] and that had by Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, in which they took the name of "the United States of America," entered into a firm league of [p167] friendship with each other for their common defence, the security of their liberties and their mutual and general welfare, binding themselves to assist each other against all force offered to or attack made upon them, or any of them, on account of religion, sovereignty, trade, or any other pretence whatever. [n5]
Whoever, then, was one of the people of either of these States when the Constitution of the United States was adopted, became ipso facto a citizen -- a member of the nation created by its adoption. He was one of the persons associating together to form the nation, and was, consequently, one of its original citizens. As to this there has never been a doubt. Disputes have arisen as to whether or not certain persons or certain classes of persons were part of the people at the time, but never as to their citizenship if they were.
Additions might always be made to the citizenship of the United States in two ways: first, by birth, and second, by naturalization. This is apparent from the Constitution itself, for it provides [n6] that "no person except a natural-born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of the Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President," [n7] and that Congress shall have power "to establish a uniform rule of naturalization." Thus new citizens may be born or they may be created by naturalization.
The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.
The reason they never put in a definition of natural born is it should be apparent where this term comes from. Since Nature is a root word in Natural it is from the "laws of nature" that creates this citizen type. The Declaration of Independence where they made this statement.
>>>When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.>>>
Laws of nature create a natural born citizen not anyone else and since Trump's mother (man made), Cruz under the INA code H, and Rubio INA code 301 it is apparents that of the top three none of them are eligible to meet the requirement of natural born citizen. Trust me the Democrats know this. We need to get this right and we need to fix this fast for the Democrats are waiting until we have the candidate. Then what? Notice that all of them have suspended their running which means they are not really out of the race. First know who is eligible by knowing your history and the Constitution - this is how Obama slipped by us.
Your position on Trumps mother is inaccurate. His mother naturalized to the USA years before Donald was born. Donald's father was a natural born US Citizen. Therefore, Donald is a "natural born Citizen" of the United States. Ted is not a "legal citizen" of the USA at all, according to all available documentation. Rubio is a U.S. citizen only according to "anchor baby" naturalization policies in the USA. Trump is the only candidate in the GOP race now, who is constitutionally eligible for the Oval Office.
Kasich is, I believe (altho he won't be in for long, I suspect).
Kasich was staying out of the rif up until now. Now he's trying to lead it!
