What makes Trump stand out from the rest of the pack is that he does not want a confrontation with Russia. He not only wants to avoid a confrontation with russia, but he wants to work with them. And, he defends Putin against slander, and says good things about him. That is completely against current globalist/establishment policy/rhetoric. Trump has said he wants germany to deal with ukraine, and for us to get the heck out of there basically. Again, this is completely opposite current rhetoric.
Cruz on the other hand wants to increase nato activity in poland and in those areas. He wants to add missiles/defense to poland and other things to provoke and increase tensions with russia. He supports the neo nazi ukrainians against russia, and that is a total give away in my opinion. It shows cruz is a war puppet. And, that is really bad in ww3 language.
That is the difference that needs to be noted. And, it is why I believe I cannot vote for cruz. A war with islam/within the field of the middle east is one thing, but Ukraine is the crossroad between catholicism and orthodoxy. And, war there is not a good thing. I want to convert the orthodox, and war/tension has the opposite effect. So, I don't want that.
