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!

"from the facts published all over the Internet he is the only one in the race that meets the Constitutional requirements for the job".
NO, he does not for his mother was not a natural born citizen and he is not a natural born citizen in the sense he can run for this office. It takes two parents who are citizens of this country (meaning not man made which his mother was) to be a natural born citizen. His mother is what is wrong with Trump as far as being President. Case in point his 9 year old child can also not run for President for while he was born on soil, he was not born to two natural born citizens. People are confusing the fact that a naturalized parent just because they are called "citizen" is not the type of citizen "Mother or Father you need to be President. Did you not read the post to "prove this point"? It is the long one above this one up towards the top of this area. Read it for right now we are giving away our right to a real President because the media picked them!!! There is something else going on here??? Media picked them, (they knew they could not run) Trump comes in for he thinks he can run and he can't. Is it possible that Trump is running as a Democrat in a Republican race?? The Democrats knew they would not win this year and they want it badly so who could they pick to fool the Republican voters but they needed to plan this with their media friends...Think this through... Just thinking out loud???
You have natural born Citizen wrong Kathryn...
READ this two part series...
What do you think it takes to be President??? Read this sentence and tell me the different types of citizens listed here???
5: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
There are two types of citizens listed here. A natural born citizen and a citizen. Why do you think that is??? The founders understood they were not "natural born citizen" so they gave themselves an exception of the second part of that sentence. "Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution". They were the ONLY ones who could be a "citizen" and be President all the other people had to be "natural born citizens" for ONLY People who are natural born are the ones who can now be President. Case in point - what is the root word of natural? Nature now where have we heard the founders use the term Nature? Our early settlers had left England and other parts of Europe because those countries had already experienced a shift away from Natural Law concepts to Common Law concepts, wherein men were making laws that infringed upon the Natural Rights of the people, not the least of which was religious persecution. Oh they used Nature in the Declaration of Independence where it states this: 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. Natural born Citizens come from Nature's laws not man made laws so a Natural born citizen is one created by nature's laws not man. This is the whole reason that they did not put a definition in the Constitution for then "man" could have changed the meaning like they are doing all over the internet. so this person states about Donald - really all over the internet - Humm here is his statement and he is below this posting. name of Paul..but I can say from the facts published all over the Internet he is the only one in the race that meets the Constitutional requirements for the job. Trouble is Donald's Mother was not Natural born in order to give that title to Donald. I am sure she was a good person but not a natural born citizen - she was man made or naturalized. Donald is also not eligible to be President for it takes two citizens to have a child and it takes two parents who are natural born to have a natural born children.
even the uneducated / liars / deceived should now have an answer.
You are wrong, Kathryn. The parents do NOT have to be "natural born Citizens," just simple citizens and meet all of the residential requirements.
Here is an update to what I have recently learned. It seems that in Vattel's Law of Nations it is only the Father who gives the right to membership of a country.
In Book 1, Chapter XIX, Paragraph 212 this is stated in that paragraph.
. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights.
Then it states this in that same paragraph: and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent.
We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.
Cruz was born in Canada, Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya. We now have his real birth certificate to prove this and the Hawaii's ones are forgeries.
Now I will say one birth certificate record that you might see on the internet may be from the records department without a footprint which is exactly like ours and there is one that does have a foot print saying it is from the hospital where Obama was born which is the one above. His Grandmother has stated that she was in the Hospital when Obama was born, and she has also stated where Obama was born in Mombasa and low and behold there it was in the hospital where he was truly born. Understand therefore that Obama may be a citizen of this country but he is not a natural born citizen which is required to be President. Obama is only a naturalized citizen so Congress not nature gave him the right to even be a citizen. Naturalized is not natural born.
INA code 301(h) - Immigration and Nationalization Act is what INA stands for.
Go down to number 4.
This is a naturalization act for man can not create a "natural born citizen" period.
information previously written indicates Rubio /
Cruz are not natural born citizens , Peter Koch. do some research /
study the Constitution , then prove him wrong.
Donald is the only candidate who can possibly defeat Hillary ( who is the last nail in America's Coffin.)..
It is VERY sad how few Americans know what a natural born Citizen is, or even care to know today.
I have researched and written countless essays on this subject since 2007 and no matter how many times the indisputable facts are put before the people, those who refuse to get it still won't get it.
In part, this is due to the fact that people have placed too much faith in all the wrong people. Further, people have been conditioned to believe whtt hey want, and to reject out of hand, any facts that challenge those beliefs.
Christian my eye!!! Christians don't lie... they don't knowingly cheat.... they don't bear false witness against others..... they don't' defraud people for personal or political gain, and they know there is only ONE Messiah, and his name isn't Ted Cruz.
SPOT ON ! however do not overlook Christians Did Not Rebel in 1963 when SCOTUS rebuked GOD.
When this government turned against THE FATHER , HE turned from it.
the USA is the 21ST Edition of Sodom and Gomorrah !
THE GLOBAL ELITES call the shots with this government their willing agents.
Thus far , prayers of the few faithful have not been answered , not a positive response....
we sorely need Abraham !
Christians "don't knowingly cheat"? How does one "cheat" unknowingly? Other than that, I agree with everything you said.
I would agree, if not for the fact that not every Christian is a practicing Christian, with discernment. I agree with the sentiment though...
WHERE DID THE FOUNDERS BORROW NATURAL BORN CITIZEN FROM?
WHAT DOES NATURAL BORN CITIZEN MEAN?
