No big surprise there. Rand Paul outed himself as a Liberaltarian some time ago. He's leaving an increasingly bad taste in the mouths of patriotic conservatives.
Go Ted go! Go Sarah go! Take America back! Crush islam! Destroy the seditious DemonRAT enemy!
I’ll support Cruz if he runs. He’s a smart articulate guy that doesn’t back down. I think the more the spotlight is on him the more he will shine. Two guys I will not support are Christie and Bush. I’d be open to a Ben Carson if he catches fire. I’d like to see a candidate like him permanently deconstruct the narrative of Republicans being anti-black. I want someone who isn’t a creature of the establishment.
Only Ted Cruz could unite SoCons and libertarians.
It takes both, along with plain 'ol suburban sorta-conservatives.
Those suburban conservatives aren't very sharp, knowledgeable, committed or conservative.
But they sure know how to climb aboard a bandwagon when "somebody needs to do something".
Our job is to form that bandwagon.
Cruz is solid. Probably the only one out there besides Palin that I have any genuine trust in. They both remind me of America as it used to be, and of Americans as they used to be. Firm and resolute in their beliefs. Unwilling to be cowed by the endless array of degenerate cultural pressures, from media attacks to PC orthodoxy to Party machinery.
Palin, Cruz, or LOSE.
IMHO, the best, possible ‘16 GOP presidential ticket is: Sarah Palin/Ted Cruz, but I would be happy with Ted Cruz as the next POTUS. How will ANY, final, conservative GOP candidate for POTUS succeed in getting enough votes from all of the “blue” areas of the U.S. to, actually, win?
I am hoping for Cruz 2016. Top of the ticket!
Yep - if we aren't proactive in the buildup to the Primaries, we will once again end up with someone we don't particularly like and start the "blame the GOPe" game instead of taking action to prevent another Obama.
from the article:Coming in second was neurosurgeon Ben Carson, a political novice who has a large following in conservative circles but said earlier this week that there is a strong likelihood that he would run for president. He won 20 percent of the votes.
I like what i "know" about Ben Carson, but most of it is from articles he wrote. I would hope that we aren't doing our own version of the "race" thing like we did with Rubio and opting to like/believe in him because of the anomaly of being a minority who espouses conservative values.
That said, Carson, or even Rubio, would be preferable to anyone the Left opts for. I'm a big Cruz fan and hope he tosses his hat into the ring - I would dust off my checkbook to donate to him in a heartbeat.
