The Iowa Caucuses Are Monday

Ted Cruz calling on Donald Trump to debate him, Lincoln - Douglass style, before caucus night.
The Iowa Caucuses are drawing near. Next Monday, this state that I've grown to love, not because of where it is or what it looks like, but because of the people I've come to know, will make a decision that will help shape the direction of country for the foreseeable future. The weight of a nation and the eyes of the world are now focused on Iowa.
Josh, Mitchell and Allison knocking on doors for Ted Cruz. Who cares about the cold? Iowans surely don't.
The next few days will be full of door to door campaign work, a debate watch party, a Sunday at Marion Avenue Baptist Church and a rally in Iowa City followed by some retail campaign work in Coralville, North Liberty and Iowa City on Monday before the caucus. I will then lead the precinct where I live for Ted Cruz and cast my vote in the Iowa Caucuses.

With the preparation and networking the Cruz campaign has done, we have been able to recruit about 12,000 volunteers in the state of Iowa. This is unprecedented. This is why we'll win. The people behind this campaign in Iowa are why Iowa is a good place to live. Young, old and everyone in between. It would take me days to list all of the people that I've come to respect and love during the course of this campaign. I've made friends that I will have forever and I thank God for that. For more on the people that mean so much to me, you can read this post from a few weeks ago.

Who knows what the future holds? All I know is that I will continue to be active in the political arena. I may get tasked to go to South Carolina in support of the #CruzCrew. If that is the case, I would be honored. But once the campaign is done, I think that Iowa will be the place I call home for the foreseeable future. There is much to be done here and it starts with returning the state to a conservative way of life. Our own Republican Party of Iowa has been infested by crony corporatist interests and it must stop. I will actively support and campaign for any Constitutional conservative that challenges the Branstad machine in Iowa.

In closing, I think that we will shock the world on Monday. The #CruzCrew is ready. We will help pave the way for the most principled candidate to run for president in my lifetime. This will officially be the first vote that I am truly excited to cast and I know there are thousands of Iowans like me. If you haven't joined us already, why not? I know I pledge my life, my fortune and my sacred honor to the restoration of this great land and its founding documents. Join us.

  1. Great post! Amen!
    ("he who shall remain nameless." =) =) love that =))

    1. Hmm, which Bontrager wrote is this? I'm going to guess that this is Chelsy. The smiles say so.
