Trends sometimes seem impossible to oppose. They can grow and become seemingly overwhelming, and people sometimes simply sigh and give in to what they consider the inevitable.
Other times, though, something will surprise you.
Take this, for example, the largest Tea Party group in America is the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund. No doubt many people assumed that they would follow the presumed trend of following Donald Trump to victory. But that is not the case.
Recently, they announced who they are endorsing for President. And it’s not Trump.
It’s Ted Cruz. The Tea Party Patriot Citizens Fund Chairman, Jenny Beth Martin, wrote,
“We seek a candidate who shares our values: personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future. On behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund and our supporters, I am proud to announce our endorsement for president of the United States: Senator Ted Cruz!”
The implication of the statement, which was part of their press release announcing who they are endorsing, seems to imply that Trump may not hold to their values of “personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future.” Based on Trump’s positions in the not-so-distant past, you can see how they would come to this conclusion. But, to be fair, people can change in their thinking and their positions on issues. Still, many people have their doubts that Trump’s change in policy positions is sincere.
What do you think: Did the Tea Part Patriot Citizens Fund make the right choice or should they have endorsed someone else and why? Sound off below.
