‘Let no one be mistaken: Donald Trump’s candidacy is a cancer on conservatism, and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised, and discarded,” former Texas governor Rick Perry declared ten months ago. Trump’s candidacy, Perry added, represents “a toxic mix of demagoguery and mean-spiritedness and nonsense that will lead the Republican party to perdition if pursued.”
Lest you’re thrown off by the alliteration, “perdition” means eternal damnation in Hell.
“America is at a point of choosing. The media will say it is about choosing a president, but it really isn’t.”
“Our real choice is personal, and every generation must make the same choice. Will we continue to live in the past with what we know no longer works, or will we move forward to a new and better place?”
“The question is whether a majority of Americans are ready to rally around a set of principles larger than any single issue that a politician may use to divide us.”
FULL EVENT including Carly Fiorina’s outstanding introduction.
