Ted Cruz; Third Party Or No Endorsement-The Ultimate Betrayal?

UPDATE-he is pathetic;

Cruz floats restarting campaign if he wins Nebraska primary

Ted Cruz  floated the possibility of restarting his presidential campaign if he wins Nebraska’s GOP primary on Tuesday and avoided saying whether he supports Donald Trump's bid for president.
Cruz, who suspended his White House run last week, said he does not expect to win Nebraska's primary but is leaving the door open.
"We launched this campaign intending to win. The reason we suspended our campaign was that with the Indiana loss, I felt there was no path to victory," he said Tuesday on conservative host Glenn Beck's radio program. 
"If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly."

The "Cruz for President" website is still up and soliciting members, as it is at the site with the official message from Senator Cruz :

"What we’ve accomplished together so far is truly remarkable — and it’s only the beginning."

Cruz is not in hiding in some retreat-on the contrary he is mixing with the elite

"Cruz and his wife make first public appearance since quitting campaign - on Kentucky Derby's Millionaire's Row -"
Ted Cruz was seen chatting with Lord Ashcroft at the Kentucky Derby while wearing a cream suit

In the meantime Twitter is showing numerous examples of what is described as  "stealth scheme" to keep picking off delegates. The logic, if that is what it is, is conceived as Cruz having enough floor support to influence not only the platform but to have the final say on who the VP would be.

This is why it is vital for Trump voters to continue to turn out in force in the remaining nine primaries to ensure Donald Trump has total control, as is his right, of the entire process at Cleveland

All that is predicated on Cruz staying in the GOP and proving it by endorsing Trump sooner rather than later. 

Who can honestly say they know what Cruz is planning in absence of even a courtesy statement from him about his future intentions with the GOP and endorsement? The fact that his website is still soliciting members for his "just beginning" crusade leaves many questions unanswered. 

What we do know is that machinations are afoot to run a third party candidate. Bill Kristol has made no bones about the fact that he is trying to recruit someone. Senator Sasse of Nebraska has called for this.

 This idiotic concept of somehow "saving" the GOP would certainly almost ensure Trump would not win  (if it was Cruz, Texas would be lost and any chance of Trump winning would go with it.) 

But if these splitters and conspirators believe there would be a Republican party left for them to reclaim after installing Hillary as president they are utterly deluded.

Until Senator Cruz shows his hand then any scenario is possible, if he does not endorse Trump or heads or supports a third party that will be the ultimate betrayal. 

It will also be the end of the two party system, for better or worse, as three right wing parties would evolve a Cruz-ite party, a populist Trump/Palin party and the dregs of the establishment Romney/Ryan party.

It's time for Senator Cruz to show his hand, if he genuinely is a Republican then prove it. 

Governor Palin, who endorsed both Trump and Cruz said she would support Cruz if he had defeated Trump, such is her dignity and loyalty, can we expect any less from Cruz who ran on his principles above all?
