In court, there are three main types of arguments: evidence, law, and procedure. Evidence is strongest; procedure is weakest; law, its intent, and its finer details float somewhere between.
A smoking gun accompanied by fingerprints and a video and three witnesses of a crime being committed is pretty solid evidence. Without so much evidence, a law making it illegal for the defendant to be where he was can also incrominate. Procedures of whether the police made the arrest properly could have an entire case dismissed.
Lawyers, attorneys, police, plaintifs, defendants—they all argue which ever of the three is strongest in their favor: evidence first, law second, procedure last.
As of Tuesday, Cruz began a campaign of procedure. This means that he knows he’s losing. And, a continuing loser implies much more.
Senator Ted Cruz—possibly soon-to-be-former, if he continues continuing—, having no mathematical path to a nomination by the people, at most, hopes to win the presidency by collaborating many technical procedures leaning against the popular vote or, at least, plans only to campaign to deny the most popular candidate the nomination. In either case, his intentions do not involve serving the will of the people.
“Lyin'” Ted Cruz shows his true colors more and more with each primary. He hopes to keep the Republican party as divided as the most segregated hour of the week: Sunday morning. Interestingly, Sunday morning was where he got most of his early votes.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me like America today—shame on us all for not being our brothers’ keepers.
How long can America stammer on about the very value of being “United” that her people contradict every day, every week, and every election? We’ll see. But it can’t go on forever.
Somewhere, just beyond a not-too-distant horizon, the people will stop blaming the politicians and publicly-traded companies—and start blaming their own spite against their fellow contrymen.
