2016: CRUZ TO SOUTH CAROLINA
www.breitbart.com ^ | 31 Oct 2013 | TONY LEE

Posted on 11/01/2013 7:39:39 AM PDT by SoConPubbie

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will travel to South Carolina on November 5 to speak at a Renewal Project event with pastors in what is arguably the most important Republican presidential primary state.

This will be Cruz's first trip to the Palmetto State since the government shutdown. Earlier in the year, Cruz was the keynote speaker at the South Carolina GOP's annual Silver Elephant Dinner, which honored former South Carolina Senator and current Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint this year.

According to the Dallas Morning News, other speakers at the Columbia, S.C. event will include Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), "Houston preacher Laurence White, former congressman Bob McEwen and Don Wildmon, whose Mississippi-based American Family Association was instrumental in financing [Rick] Perry’s pre-announcement prayer rally in Houston and appears to be providing funding for South Carolina and similar events in other states."

KEYWORDS: cruz

"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

 

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

 

"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792

 

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

 

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

I wish he would go into SC and endorse Lee Bright. That would get attention.

My friends in DC think Cruz is toxic. These are pretty conservative people but now stuck in beltway bubble. I can’t figure out how to convince them otherwise.

Constant, but kindly, sharing of information concerning Ted’s Policy position, YouTube articles showing what kind of man he is, etc.

They can be turned, it just takes patience.

You can’t. The beltway sucks IQ points the minute you cross the Potomac.

My friends in DC think Cruz is toxic.

That's kinda what I drew from a talk by a Republican inside-the-beltway "expert" this week. I don't think he's "toxic" and I hope that he has a long career in Republican party politics -- but I'm not convinced he's electable in 2016.

Speaking of "toxic", one poll (Republican) http://www.conservativeintel.com/1030-conservative-intel-poll-of-scsen-and-fits-primary-2016/# has Christie leading.

Among Republican primary voters. In South Carolina. Amazing.

If South Carolina was the most important primary state, Gingrich would be president now.

Cruz has said (there's a thread somewhere on FR) that he's not going to get into primary races.

I grew up around DC. I can tell you that we could solve the riddle of Unified Field Theory before convincing the glob of government minded people that inhabit the Beltway region to listen to reality.

DC has been one area, about the only area that the country has consistently grown economically over the years that Obama has been in office. DC-Northern VA-nearly All of Maryland have effectively only one industry and that is government.

Your friends are likely to be in government or one step removed but dependent on government in some way either contractually or dependent on the those that are.

Cruz to them reflects a danger to their way of life. And that is a good thing.

Rather than try and convince them, try smiling at them and letting them know that you are there for them when the Sh*t hits the fan, and it will.

I wouldn’t feel the least bit discouraged at that poll. Christie leads Cruz by 2% in a poll with a 3.77% swing. Christie has been on the seen for 4 or more years and a year ago no one outside of we Texans had any idea who Ted Cruz was. Add to that the fact Christie is imploding and it looks pretty good for Cruz....of course polls this early are worthless!!!

You’re not convinced Cruz is electable, and you post a poll that shows Tub-o-$hit Christie leading?

Do various colored paint chips have different flavors?

It may not be the most important primary state but it's also far from the least important.

I had forgotten about the front end SC primary.

I would think Cruz would be a near lock there.

This should send shivers down the spine of the Christie/Cornyn wing of the party.....

Ted Cruz is the only available antibiotic that can cure America of its infections which will prove terminal if they are not cleared up.

Linking and searching I discovered it’s gonna be in Columbia 11/4-5. But I can’t find out specifically when Cruz is speaking.

To get elected, Cruz can’t do or say anything stupid.

He can’t do or say anything that could be manipulated to appear stupid.

He can’t have done anything in his past that might have been stupid.

He’s 1/4 of the way Palined already. Thank goodness he isn’t white.

Well, we know that squishy RINOs aren't electable. Nominating another squish isn't going to work. Let's try something different next time!

They said the same things about Reagan, look how that turned out.

In truth, the only ones unelectable are those we are being told by the so-called experts that are most electable.

Mitt Romney, John McCain, Rudy Guiliani, etc. should provide you with a good pattern as to who is not electable.

I'll give you another hint: those that moderate, or water-down, the conservative message, those who think they can (and need to) compromise with the left are the ones who are MOST UNELECTABLE.

Actually, he said--( on video at a casual moment to one reporter before he went hunting in Iowa with the Governor)...he would not jump in to endorse a candidate.....he would let the locals pursue their candidate....vet him or her.....and maybe when it's closer to deciding, he-(Cruz) would have something to say....

..he left it at that.

Yep. In Republican-oriented groups, but serious beltway group think. My only concern with Cruz or any other ‘DC unapproved’ candidate is whether our own side will trip them up and divide our side just to maintain the status quo. I wonder if Reagan could have gotten through the 24/7 barrage of news and entertainment entities and their power to shape opinion. In a weird way, he almost benefited from being there before the cable networks and alternative media sources. Less noise to work around.

As we the unwashed conservative bumpkins in flyover country nuke the Beltway RINO Ruling Class in the primaries, don’t be surprised to hear your friends in and around the District of Corruption increase their shrill squawks calling us anarchists, terrorists and a danger to national security.

Because their paychecks depend on making us go away which is not going to happen.

Send them a survival guide autographed by you with a big smiley face drawn on the inside cover. Offer to take them camping out to Great White Falls where you can rough it for a weekend. You can become their Indiana Jones.

Because the way I see it a lot of them are going to packing up the U-Haul trucks and trailers and headed for Boomtown Dakota where there will be the only jobs they can latch onto until we take back Washington and get the economic policies in place to create jobs everywhere.
