Conservative economist and American legend Thomas Sowell says that one thing made him finally endorse a candidate for the 2016 election.
And it just might change everything.
From Real Clear Politics:
Amid the petty bickering, loud rhetoric and sordid attack ads in this year’s primary election campaigns, the death of a giant — Justice Antonin Scalia — suddenly overshadows all of that.
The vacancy created on the Supreme Court makes painfully clear the huge stakes involved when we choose a President of the United States, just one of whose many powers is the power to nominate justices of the Supreme Court.
Senator Ted Cruz has been criticized in this column before, and will undoubtedly be criticized here again. But we can only make our choices among those actually available, and Senator Cruz is the one who comes to mind when depth and steadfastness come to mind.
As someone who once clerked for a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, he will know how important choosing Justice Scalia’s replacement will be. And he has the intellect to understand much more.
Sowell is universally respected among the right-wing community for being an incredibly wise and intelligent defender of the principles and traditions of conservatism and the Constitution.
It’s no wonder that he supports the consistent Conservative in the presidential race.
But is it enough to overcome the celebrity of Donald Trump?
