The entire Trump fiasco came about because those that GOP voters chose were people who made promises year after year and did not keep any of them. This has been going on for decades.<br />\n GOP voters are looking for someone who will tell it like it is and promise to make attempts to change some of Washington&rsquo;s more egregious sins and actually keep their word no matter the political fallout. A strict constitutionalist who does not &ldquo;bow his knee&rdquo; to what the establishment wants is what we&rsquo;re looking for. This is not an endorsement of Ted Cruz, per se.<br />\n Rather than the &ldquo;anyone but Trump,&rdquo; we are more the &ldquo;anyone but a GOP establishment candidate.&rdquo; We are rejecting the GOP establishment because they have been rejecting us. To say that the GOP is about to deconstruct is obvious and few of us will care. We Republican voters are pretty much fed up, not just with the party but with a GOP establishment that only pays lip service to what they profess to live by. The reality is that they are only trying to please themselves and others of their ilk. &nbsp;<br />\n Many media personalities say they will leave the United States if Trump is elected; from where we sit, they can go.&nbsp; Then we can return our country and its government back to the founder&rsquo;s original intent. Thank you for this forum. &mdash; Kathleen the Conservative Machine<br />\n Dear Kathleen: &nbsp;<br />\n It seems so simple doesn&rsquo;t it?&nbsp; If the Republicans we sent to Washington simply kept their campaign promises and also followed the Constitution, they could probably stay in office as long as they liked. Call me cynical but Washington is pretty much a good old boys and girls club between Republicans, Democrats and lobbyists.<br />\n It works like this: Nancy, Harry, Mitch and Paul all regularly meet over scotch to discuss not hurting each other too bad politically so that they can please their respective lobbyists. The end result is both parties leave Washington with a lot more money than when they got to town. &nbsp;<br />\n Border security is a perfect example.&nbsp; Republicans had enough votes in the House and Senate to pass a clean bill securing the border either with a wall, fence, drones or other high tech means.&nbsp; But establishment Republicans are beholden to many businesses that love the cheap illegal labor while Democrats are beholden to their Hispanic constituency.&nbsp; As a result members of both parties will receive some big coin just as Mrs. Bill Clinton did for her Wall Street speeches and the American people still have to be worried about terrorists walking across from Mexico.<br />\n Hopefully the GOP can survive its own convention and Cruz or Trump can win in November to kick some tail in Washington and bring some sanity back to DC.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n Polls are showing Donald Trump is losing ground in the female demographic. His recent remarks to Chris Mathews that women who have abortions should be punished sure didn&rsquo;t help him. Is Trump anti-woman? &mdash; Not Helen Reddy<br />\n Dear Not Helen: &nbsp;<br />\n I don&rsquo;t believe Mr. Trump is anti-woman but the left led by Mrs. Bill Clinton will take any remarks by any GOP candidate and turn them into the right-wing war on women. Although Trump has made crude remarks about women such as Megyn Kelly, Carly Fiorina and Rosie O&rsquo;Donnell, he has proven to be an equal opportunity offender with outrageous remarks about his fellow GOP contenders as well.<br />\n I have to give it to the Donald with his comments on abortion; he has managed to offend both sides of the abortion debate with a single comment. Now that is a savvy politician.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n It&rsquo;s hilarious that Hillary&rsquo;s campaign is telling the Bernie campaign to change its negative tone toward Hillary or there will be no Democratic debate in New York. Doesn&rsquo;t she sound like a big crybaby? &mdash; No Crying in Politics<br />\n Dear No Crying: &nbsp;<br />\n Team Hillary&rsquo;s comments seem disingenuous considering the destruction the Clinton machine is capable of. Also the whining about softening the tone is probably the same thing Bill was begging Hillary each time he was caught with another woman.</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
