40 Years Ago Foreshadowing a 2020 Vision...

A very recent polls show that 40% of Bernie voters would vote for Trump in November if it's between Trump and Hillary. What Beck is saying is that if a large portion of that is true, even if conservatives stayed home or voted 3rd Party/Write-in, that block of Bernie voters could pick up the slack. There is debate as to whether it'll be a low voter turnout (because Trump and Hillary are both so bad as candidates, that it'll suppress turnout), or whether it'll increase turnout (because while the conservatives and socialists may sit out, new-low-info-frustrated-with-both-parties voters will go to the polls to either choose Trump because "outsider" or Hillary because "NOT-Trump, besides... Bill did 'ok' in the 90s despite his personal slime, so why not another Clinton for a second go-round").
Personally, although I'm #NeitherTrumpNorHillary (and will write-in Cruz on Nov 8), it won't really matter which of the two "wins" because the country (as well as other nations: Greece, Italy, France, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, China, Japan, the EU) will economically and financially implode making the last 8 years look like a walk in the park. Along with that will be increases in radical islamic terrorism and international military strife (Iran, North Korea, China, Russia, Turkey, etc.).
Whomever is president these next four years won't be able to fix a gosh darn thing, and will most likely make matters even worse.
Cruz stated in his concession/suspension speech:
"But hear me now I am not suspending our fight for liberty. I am not suspending our fight to defend the constitution, to defend the Judeo-Christian values that built America. Our movement will continue and I give you my word that I will continue this fight with all of my strength and all of my ability. You are extraordinary and we will continue to fight next week and next month and next year and together we will continue as long as God grants us the strength to fight on."
This next line tells you everything:
"For one thing remains as true today as it was 40 years ago in Kansas City. In this fight for the long term future of America there is no substitute for victory. There is no substitute for the America that each and every one of us loves with all of our heart, that we believe in with all of our heart and that together we will restore as a shining city on the hill for every generation to come. Thank you to each of you and god bless you."
What was 40 years ago? What's this "restoring that shining city on a hill"? That was the battle for the GOP nomination between Ford and Reagan in 1976. You know what happened next. Ford won the nomination. Ford then lost to Carter. Carter was a complete disaster (domestically with the economy and internationally with foreign policy). Reagan ran again for the nomination, and then went on to win big time against Carter four years later to "restore that shining city on a hill".
Cruz just announced today that he will run for re-election for TX Senate in 2018. He's going to continue to fight and be the leader & mouthpiece for constitutional conservatism these next four years in the Senate, and will run again for President in 2020 (learning from his mistakes, and having an even bigger, stronger, more organized and effective campaign... against either Trump or Hillary... doesn't matter... the end result of either administration will be the same... a total and complete disaster).
Hopefully, God willing, this nation can survive until then.
