Abraham Lincoln wrote, "I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong." That means putting country ahead of party and conscience ahead of conformity. And that is why I am a FORMER Republican.
42% of the Missouri vote now in, and it's Trump 42.1% to Cruz's 40.6%. Since Missouri, like Illinois, awards its delegates by congressional district, we're already at the point where Trump is certain to be denied a delegate bonanza. But it would be nice psychologically to have him lose this one.
