The Revolution is Underway

By Mike McCarville

The revolution in Republican politics is underway.

The leader is not the choice of “grassroots” Republicans, Ted Cruz.

He’s not the choice of the “establishment” either, Marco Rubio.

He is, instead, the unlikely-est of all, Donald Trump.

And it is a revolution, make no mistake. Thousands of voters in primary and caucus states have validated what is happening.

Others are startled by Trump’s ascension. The Associated Press interviewed one man, a voter, and reported the conversation: “(he) is part of a legion of skeptical Republican voters across the United States coming to grips with the prospect that Trump, a candidate whose appeal they simply can’t understand, may end up being their party’s best chance for retaking the White House.

Super Tuesday - Oklahoma Pride - March 1, 2016

In Oklahoma, it would be bad politics to seek votes by asking them to participate in an SEC Primary. We’re not really sure who’s behind the effort to name the event after the college athletic conference from the southeast, but it really makes no difference who. We’re Okies and we’re againnit!

Convincing wins in Super Tuesday primaries have usually propelled candidates to their party’s nomination. The particular states holding primaries on Super Tuesday have varied from year to year.

Rand Paul Suspends Presidential Campaign But Not Efforts for Liberty!

In text released today and reported by CNN and later in the day direct from the campaign to grassroots supporters:

It’s been an incredible honor to run a principled campaign for the White House. Today, I will end where I began, ready and willing to fight for the cause of Liberty.

Across the country thousands upon thousands of young people flocked to our message of limited government, privacy, criminal justice reform and a reasonable foreign policy. Brushfires of Liberty were ignited, and those will carry on, as will I.

Although, today I will suspend my campaign for president, the fight is far from over. I will continue to carry the torch for Liberty in the United States Senate and I look forward to earning the privilege to represent the people of Kentucky for another term.
