from newsmax.com: ’Trump: Sanders Should Run as Independent’ - Joe Crowe - April 26
I have been hoping that Sanders would run as an independent. That would give a shoe-in victory to whomever the GOP nominee is. I am not a fan of Trump, but I WILL vote for him if he is the nominee.
Can you trump voters say the same thing if Cruz gets the nomination in a second ballot??
I doubt it. You will all take your doll dishes and go home because YOUR candidate didn't get the nomination.
I think a Trump/Cruz ticket is the best way to go.

- Cruz is ineligible for the VP slot (12th Amendment); same as the top slot. Same as Rubio.
Same as Obama. Which unfinished business we need to get to just asap. That this sort of crap that we have been subjected to for the last 7+ years doesn't ever happen again,.
- Marry in haste, repent at leisure.
Cruz and Rubio are US citizens. Natural born. Same as my son and millions of others.
- It's not enough just to be a "citizen" in order to be a "natural born" citizen. A 'natural born citizen' is defined as a person born in the country to parents who are citizens. That's what makes it 'natural'.
The proof: At the Constitutional Convention, Alexander Hamilton, as a delegate to the proceedings, made a proposal that the president need only be, quote, "born a citizen" - and his proposal was SPECIFICALLY TURNED DOWN, in favor of the more stringent 'natural born' category. The whole point of the exercise was to make sure that the occupant of that office, who would as well then become the Commander in Chief of the nation's military forces, had NO DUAL OR OTHERWISE CONFLICTING LOYALTIES OR ALLEGIANCES OR INFLUENCES. Had SOLE ALLEGIANCE to the U.S. And that remains one of the eligibility requirements for that office, absent a constitutional amendment to the contrary.
