If Ted Cruz decides to run for the Presidency and he appears to be the strongest conservative running, I will support him to the hilt. He's one of the few conservatives in the Senate who actually has the balls to stand up for conservatism and against Obama and the GOP-e RINOs. This is a battle for the survival of America as a free nation. If we allow the democrats and the GOP-e statists to select our next opposition candidate for us, ie, Chris Christie or Jeb Bush, this nation is kaput.
We stand united or we fall. We cannot afford to destroy our best candidates or to split our conservative vote to the point that the likes of Christy or Bush gets the nod and someone like Hillary waltzes into the White House.
Supporting the "electable" Dole, McCain and Romney gave us Clinton and Obama. Supporting the crazy conservative gave us President Reagan.
I will no longer follow the argument that if I don’t vote for whatever R is on the ballot I am insuring a dim. I will no longer vote for nor send any money to any candidate that is not a true conservative. I will stay home. Revelations say that if you are not hot or cold you will be spit out. I am no longer tepid.
And Bumped again.
Reagan was an effective speaker who attracted both conservatives and Republicans. I hope Cruz is an effective speaker and if he’s not he gets started learning how to be.
Just pinged you and the Mod to a begging ZOT-ee...
Ted Cruz Ping!
That is one of Ted’s shining quality’s.
Cruz is an AWEsome speaker.
Sorry you’ve missed it.
There’s still plenty of time, Lord willing, for you to confirm it.
Cruz doesn’t have that story telling gift that the Gipper had, yet, he might be just the man to attract the same Republican and blue dog votes to get him into the White House.
Pragmatism does not make good politics.
Why dont you try listening to him now?
While I believe a person is either naturalized or natural with no other definition possible, I see it that Cruz represents my interests in America and is not phony about it, so if the liberals can have a questionable candidate in Zero we can have a known US citizen in Cruz! All this attempt at hair splitting be damned!
You have freepmail.
Well, CATO believes he’s a natural born citizen and so does Mark Levin. And so do I.
