Winston Churchill said: “The price of greatness is responsibility.” If one wants to excel, and be recognized in any field, one must reach for the heights of greatness to even get a shot. We live in a world where the bar has been set so high in many respects that achieving greatness requires extraordinary gifts.

Throughout the Republican nomination process, I moved from one candidate to another in an instant, because I would discover something that I perceived to be a fatal flaw. I understand now that as human beings, politicians will never be flawless; but sometimes, it seems like Conservatives willfully terminate their candidacy. Example: Marco Rubio.

For all intents and purposes, he was the candidate I was looking forward to supporting in 2016. He had all the prerequisites: he is pro-life (my biggest concern), fiscally sound, a defender of the second amendment, and he possesses numerous other qualities that are attractive to a staunch Conservative, like myself.

Within the short span of a few months, my enthusiasm for Rubio has plummeted, due entirely to his foolishness in regard to the new immigration bill.

Marco Rubio fell into the trap of naïveté.
