Take it as a given that politicians on the national stage are going to be slimy opportunists. Then all that's left is to back the guy who supports your interests and principles.
If your top 5 are something like...
- lowering top marginal tax rates for income and gains
- spending cuts (ideally to the entitlement programs that incentivize degeneracy)
- presumption against regulation
- respect for the rule of law in the exec branch
- keeping the actual troglodytes (Muslims) out of the USA.
...who's your guy if not Cruz?
All the social issues continue to be a virtue-signalling sideshow to wind up the low-information voters on either side. No one is about to break up gay families or stop the taxpayer funded pelvic exams. By all means score some points in your social circle by bashing the outgroup, but don't bring that nonsense into the ballot box.
