Opinion: Trump gets the nod over self-righteous Ted Cruz

Donald Trump is the better presidential candidate when compared to Ted Cruz.

Yes, Mr. Trump is often outrageously over the top, but he has a proven track record of being able to work with people to get things done.  Ted Cruz has a severely limited ability to get along with people other than himself.

He would rather think himself right and sink the ship of state, rather than compromise, even when valid arguments and facts are on the other side.   He is a Bible-based divider, filled with negative self-righteousness.

Americans rightly reject extremist Muslims who want to impose Sharia Law on everyone.  What we are slower to recognize and react to are those among us, including Ted Cruz, who want to impose their particular Bible-based views on everyone.

Make no mistake, Mr. Cruz may be a lawyer who has practiced before the U.S.  Supreme Court, but he has no love or respect for difference and diversity. The only worse thing than Mr. Cruz getting the Republican nomination would be his election as president.

That would be a monumental disaster for America.
