Foster Friess was just on Cavuto talking Ted Cruz up.
In order to have limited government you need to have unlimited resources. The key to unlimited resources is dirt cheap plentiful energy and water.
I wish Cruz had a more sound energy policy—one that is at least as fully thought out as the democrats clean energy policy.
In less than ten years electric cars (and fuel cell cars in Japan) -—are going to start taking a bite out of demand for oil and the smell of civilization change will be palpable and the democrats will be on the winning side.)
Right now the republicans are too closely wedded to oil.
This fart blossom beautiful and futile.
Key promises for the pubbies need to be crash programs in MSR reactor R&D and desalination R&D. The beauty here is that all this stuff already far advanced. It will happen anyway in ten years. The main thing is that the pubbies get their name attached to cheap energy and water technologies like the dems have their brand attached to solar and wind.
Oh yeah there’s one more thing. The USA has only one untamed river. That’s the Missippi. The key to stopping the flooding is to slice off 10-20 feet off the top of the river from March to June and pipe it west to west texas, western Kansas eastern Colorado for the ogalalah aquifer and then further west to the south pass in southwestern wyoming for the colorado basin.
The expense of this operation would be better than the current expense of about 4 billion annually for the army corpe of engineers to man the dikes and for FEMA to pay for disaster relief and repatriation away from the Missippi river.
I would absolutely rejoice if Ted Cruz is nominated and wins in November 2016. But being deliberate is my nature, so I must be able to see who is connecting with majority of voters and who is not. I will be watching Real Clear Politics poll averages carefully. Poll averages have proven to be a good gauge of voter preferences. First GOP debates are only 5 months away.
Ted’s first speech declaring his candidacy was great!
If batteries or fuel cells are the future, the free market will provide it. Government should stay out of the way and let freedom work.
When airplanes begin to fly on batteries or fuel cells, I will believe oil has peaked.
I heard his speech this morning, I like him even more now!
In the meantime, the world runs on coal, gas and oil. Obama’s war on energy is stupid. The sooner he and his idiotic Marxist policies meet the ash heap of history the better.
I just made a small donation. I plan to send another next month.
Go, Ted, Go!!
We need him in the White House! Hope everyone does what they can.
I tend to disagree that the "bite" would be sizable. Gasoline for cars is a by-product of refining oil. There will still be sizable demand for oil and its many thousands of products (many of which go into producing those components for cars and fuel cells, and for generating the electricity to power those cars). What, all of a sudden we won't need asphalt, plastics, lubricants, paint and solvents etc.?
GO Ted Cruz!!
Cruz.. I’m in.
Who made that rule up?
I reject your basic premise.
Largest Christian University?
I think GOP establishment is more like the unions.
They back whoever’s turn it is by seniority.
Skills and abilities mean nothing in union seniority system either.
Thank you for the link.
“President Ted Cruz” has a nice ring to it.
Sen Ted Cruz will have the entire hour on Hannity’s show, tonight!!
Woo hoo! Cruz 2016!
What a great speech and yet not one teleprompter for him.
I can see why the Dems are afraid of him. He is smart, relates with his background, done well for himself and can articulate his views.
Yes! He reminds me so much of Reagan with his visionary appeal to pull together and make the country great again.
