In less than a year, we’ll be facing the decisive mid-term elections. Between now and November 8, 2022, many candidates will be entering a political race that will decide what direction America takes as a nation—a decision that likely shall determine its very fate. Many people in the political arena make great claims and promise amazing feats, seeking to win votes that will transport them first over the election line of victory. Americans are now finally catching on to the importance of voting for representation that will actually benefit America. Have we any guidelines for choosing the right candidate? How nice it would be if we just had a simple test to separate the RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) from the genuine patriots. Maybe we do.

After an inspiring discussion with my wife the other day, I’m more convinced than ever that selecting a strong constitutionalist candidate, meaning not a RINO, can be done with confidence. But let me be clear: I define the right candidate as one who sees the big picture and knows the importance of putting America first.

Say what you want about Donald Trump, but he has impregnated America with the Make America Great Again (MAGA) mindset. The majority of constitutional conservative American voters have MAGA branded on their foreheads. Nothing else matters. The idea may sound a little dogmatic, perhaps even a little cultish to some, but the fact remains that Americans with common sense appreciated all that President Trump accomplished in his four-year presidential debut. America did thrive.
