During GOP candidate Donald Trump’s nomination acceptance speech at the GOP convention, he had some select words for the American public about why he got into the race in the first place.
He can’t really be in it for fame or glory — he’s already world-renowned. He certainly needs for nothing.
The reason was that he feels that America needs a change, and as he puts it, “The time for action is now.”
As he stood there amid a sea of fanatical cheering, he continued: “I have joined the political arena so the powerful can no longer beat up on people who cannot defend themselves.”
The Republican Party is coalescing behind Trump. Although many were dubious about a fractured, dying party, how the delegates responded to Sen. Ted Cruz’s unwillingness to endorse The Donald during his convention speech was pretty telling.
But even if Cruz was unwilling to formerly endorse Trump, he did state the importance of voting Republican in the coming fall. He urged folks to prevent Democrat likely nominee Hillary Clinton from taking the White House.
According to a transcript of his speech on Roll Call, he said: “Hillary Clinton believes that government should make virtually every choice in your life. Education, health care, marriage, speech, all dictated out of Washington.”

“We will unite the party. We will unite the country by standing together for shared values by standing for liberty,” he concluded.
As we come closer to the fall election, it will be increasingly important for those whose opinions do not completely conform to Trump’s to rally behind the elected nominee.
