Iowa Caucus Results Should Give Conservatives Hope

For anyone inclined to view the 2016 primaries as the people’s election, the results in Iowa had to come as a mild disappointment. No conservative can question the integrity and commitment of Ted Cruz, but even with his unofficial reputation as the most hated man in Washington, he is, after all, a sitting senator. And while there would presumably be some historical significance to a Hillary Clinton victory, Bernie Sanders has hijacked all of that first-woman excitement with his dreams of turning America into a European-style socialist democracy. Thus, while a Clinton/Cruz victory night has undoubtedly brought relief to those who fear the respective runners-up, it’s hard to ignore that sound off in the distance. It’s quiet. It’s vague. But if you listen closely, it’s there. And it sounds a lot like air being let out of a balloon.

But now is the time for optimism. Iowa was the one state Donald Trump was never supposed to win. In fact, were it not for a late-stage surge in the polls, his loss Monday night would have come as no surprise at all. His supporters still have ample reason to believe he will be the last man standing when every state has had their say.

As for Cruz, he’s facing an uphill climb. His brand of Christian conservatism will not find a more welcoming home than it did in Iowa. He is the man of the moment in nearly every corner of conservative media, but there’s a vast gulf between readers of National Review and the general Republican electorate. A Cruz presidency has the potential to truly undo the evils of the Obama administration…but can it actually happen? A Trump nomination, at least theoretically, could open doors to victory that a Cruz nomination will leave closed. What good does an ideologically perfect candidate do us if it leads to a Clinton landslide?

Then there is Marco Rubio. His 3rd place finish in Iowa – only 1% behind Trump – could be the biggest story of the night. With the writing on the wall for Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, and John Kasich, the big-time Republican donors will see in Rubio their best shot at an establishment victory. A Rubio nomination is not going to energize conservatives the way Trump or Cruz might, but there are certainly more dismal outcomes to imagine than a President Rubio. He’s smart, capable, and conservative. Is he going to fix the mess that is Washington? Nah. Can he set this country on a path better than the one we’re on? God, yes.

“Tonight is a victory for the grassroots,” Cruz said Monday night. “Tonight is a victory for courageous conservatives across Iowa and all across this great nation.”

That’s a good way to look at it. If we can assume from the Iowa results that the Republican nominee will be one of these three men, conservatives have plenty of reasons to stay excited. None of them are flawless, but let’s keep one thing firmly in mind: We’re not replacing an ineffective Republican incumbent. For all of the (justified) criticism of the establishment, we must not forget what it is we’re really fighting against. A Clinton victory in November would have dire, long-lasting effects on the United States. At some point, the entrenched liberalism will be irreversible. The divide between what is written in the Constitution and what is seen in modern America will grow perilously wide. A Republican victory can, at the very least, stop the bleeding. Compared to the alternative, what more can we reasonably ask?

  1. I have told people to be careful with Repubs and TPs. They are so dumb that they still have Cruz as one of GOP candidates. These people cannot understand that Cruz is a foreigner born in Canada and therefore not eligible for the WH job. But they like his soft spoken style. They also do not know Texas lawyers have filed suit to remove Cruz as senator and WH candidate. TPs and Repubs read the Sports section and never read legal issues round them. I am not surprised Trump calls them names “dumb.”

    • Hey, wait just a gol-darned minute. I don’t read the sports section (I did notice you capitalized “Sports” so I must assume it is relatively important to you). Please forgive me, I must go cling to my guns and Bilbles, as well as take some antihistamines (I get plugged up when I am confronted by the stink of trolls)..

    • Good God, Why don’t you take your libtard crap and go spread it to your libtard friends?? Oh, I forgot, you don’t have any do you? That is why you have to troll Conservative sites I guess!!! Talk about dumb, I mean, a washed up old lying SEAHAG and a gray haired old communist is the best the libtards have to offer?? WOW!! IDIOT!!

    • Why don’t you go back where you came from moron

      • I used to live in Lubbock Texas. I hate going there because people there are racist and therefore dumb. They have also funny accent. That turned me off.

    • Why is it an issue with you? The Dems have had a president for eight years that has claimed U.S. citizenship, even though he received his education via a grant for foreign students. He supposedly was born in a nonexistent hospital in Hawaii to a teenage minor of American origin. His mother married a Kenyan, revoked his American citizenship, and later returned him to a grandmother in Hawaii. His whole history was placed under lock and key. Did the democrats challenge his qualifications? No.
      So Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother and Cuban father. Many feel that this disqualifies him from meeting the standards of Natural Born Citizen.
      Despite your ardent dislike of the GOP and TP’s, the fact remains that the Dems committed the greatest scam on the American public. And, many republicans and Tea Party members are aware of the law suits.
      Also, for your information, there is no requirement for a Senator or Representative to be a Natural Born Citizen; only a citizen and age requirement.
      Since there is no other qualifier than that a President be a Natural Born Citizen, and there is no definitive definition given as to what is considered a Natural Born Citizen, this question will continue to plague the public.

      • “, even though he received his education via a grant for foreign students.”

        STOP LYING

        • There is only ‘witness data’ versus M$ secreted data, for that, I will grant, but in a “transparent administration” it doesn’t pass muster to me.

      • Okay, you said Obama was born to an American mother and Kenyan father. Why then did you throw a fit, trying to disqualify Obama that he was born in non-existing hospital in Hawaii. You’re a hypocrite for you know Cruz was not born on American soil; but you let Cruz in. Cruz is supposed be in prison for lying in his papers that he was from Delaware.

  2. It was the beginning. Trump is going to self destruct. I have predicted this for some time. I can’t believe anyone when they get to the voting booth would vote for this buffoon.

    • Who do you want? The old socialist or the old corrupt lady under FBI investigation? Talk about buffoons.

      • The Old Democratic Socialist.
        lets STOP LYING.

        Social Security is Democratic Socialism.

        Medicare is Democratic Socialism.

        Medicaid is Democratic Socialism

        Post Office are Democratic Socialism. (and in the Constitution)

        The US highway system is Democratic Socialism (and in the Constitution)

        our electric grid is Democratic Socialism

        Public Utilities are Democratic Socialism

        • Nice try. Anything controlled by the government WILL fail. All money losers, Social security, Medicare, Medicaid and the Post Office, all losers. You forgot Am-Trak, another money loser. No one runs the private sector better than the private sector and no socialist country is more successful than the US. Socialism is for people too stupid to know how to exploit capitalism for themselves.

        • Stop, stop! You’ve already fried the right zingers’ brains!

    • When will journalists and reporters stop calling Trump a Conservative. He is NOT! He is a progressive liberal who wants everyone in America to have free Health Care, as you know if you’re not as dumb as a fence post, health care is not free. Who will pay for it? We, the tax paying Americans. I don’t know about you, but my health insurance costs have just gone up a bunch. I have trouble paying my own bills, I can’t afford to pay others. Also our debt has just gone over 19 trillion dollars. Trump may be worth billions but he also owes a bunch of money and he uses bankrumptcy whenever a company takes a bad turn. He maybe hollars a lot about illegal immigration and has everyone stirred up but Cruz has been saying and trying to get something done about it for years. As for everyone hating Cruz, only the Washington cartel does because he tries to get something done for the American people and they just want to line their pockets. Cruz is the only true conservative in the race and I think he will be very electable because of his policies. Rubio wants to flood our country with more immigrants.

      • The only candidates that I will vote for is Trump or Cruz it is a hard choice but Trump is the man as far as I am concerned, I am tired of our country being run by another damned lawyer & Trump is a very good business man & know the value of a dollar & if anyone can do it Trump can make America great once again. Sheriff Joe just endorsed him & said that he knows him & will do what he says he will & that is what is needed in these trying times

      • First of all, as you have acknowledged, there is no such thing as free health care. Even in countries offering socialized medicine, the patient must pay a tax or fee for coverage. Can you think of one person that does not owe money? Also, Trump is not the only person using the bankruptcy laws, lots of people do and a majority of them are businessmen and companies.
        Cruz is a constitutionalist more than a conservative. But, he has alienated many in D.C., because of his attempts to defund Obamacare and his stance on other Constitutional issues. But, with a president that rules by fiat of threats, much of his efforts have gone nowhere.

      • Trump is a person that was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He has no idea what it is like to want something and can’t have it. He has made a bunch of fools believe that if he is president that all he will have to do is snap his fingers and it will get done. He even thinks so. A person doesn’t have to have much common sense that is living in a dream world. He says he is going to make America great again. I don’t know of anybody that doesn’t think it is great now. There are people risking their lives to get here. Who are all these buffoons that are Trump supporters anyway. They are certainly in for a big surprise..

    • Well I got some news for you I am voting for Trump, I think he is the only one that can put this country back on the right track just like R Reagan did & it’s about time I a sure he has many other things he could be doing besides running for the toughest job in America

      • So you are one of those Trump supporters that believe all Trump will have to do is flick his fingers and whatever he wants done will get done. I know he thinks so to. Trump has no idea of what it is to want something and not get it. He has everything he wanted all his life. You and he are going to find out life is not like that. He talks like he can do all these things with his one liners but never tells how he is going to do it. He doesn’t even know. How is he going to make the Mexicans build that wall and pay for it? You don’t know and he doesn’t even know. I have a bridge in Arizona I want sell anybody who believes this. He says he is going to make America Great again. Who thinks it is not great now? People are risking their lives to get here.

    • And exactly how do you predict he will self destruct? You consider him a buffoon, but he is a force that has awaken many Americans to the actual dangers we face as a nation. Do you honestly think any of the other milksops will actually fight to right the nation once again? Trump maybe a buffoon in your eyes, but he has managed to make a name for his self in the business world, a world he commands. And that requires a lot more intelligence than you are willing to admit.

      • Trump will self destruct when someone starts asking him some questions on how he is going to accomplish all the things he has said in his one liners. He is going to undo that agreement with Iran and put us back to war. Russia, China, France, Germany and Great Britain all signed that agreement. How is he going to get them all to renege on that agreement also. We have peace now lets give peace a chance. He is going to undo Obama Care. The Republicans have tried over 50 times to get this done. The American people want Universal Health Insurance. If he was smart he would suggest he is going to fix the things about it that isn’t working in stead of getting rid of it where we have to be controlled by the Insurance Companies.

      • It doesn’t take much brains to declare bankruptcy four times!

  3. Patriotic USVeteran1776

    No real hope with so many Pro-Gun voters if the following trump statements are true, as posted by Ammoland;

    Donald Trump “I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun.” “I hate the concept of guns.” “The Republicans walk the NRA line and refuse even limited restrictions.” “I probably identify more as a Democrat.”

    • Patriotic USVeteran1776

      Here is another from 2000;

      Trump hasn’t always been an ardent Second Amendment supporter. Back in 2000, when he toyed with the idea of running for President, Trump supported the Assault Weapons Ban and waiting periods to purchase a gun:

      “The Republicans walk the NRA line and refuse even limited restrictions,” he wrote in his book The America We Deserve. “I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun.”

      Ref: http://www.thefederalistpapers.org/us/a-flip-flop-trump-now-supports-second-amendment

      • Patriotic US Veteran, guess what? Ronald Regan was also a democrat in the beginning. People can change. Trump is going to win. Like it or not. just sayin’.

        • Patriotic USVeteran1776

          Don’t get me wrong, if Trump wins the nomination, I will be voting for him. even a half republican is better than any liberal the left has to offer. So no, I will not be voting for any democrat in any presidential elections. I am still on the fence between Trump, and Cruz, But no one else.

          • Me too but my service was from 1962 to 1964, man are you old lol

          • Patriotic USVeteran1776

            George Washington, and I started the first NCO Club. Lol

          • Yeah I know how it feels, I have niece that asked me if I knew Abraham Lincoln when she was studying him in school, I of course told her that we were old drinking buddies to this day I don’t think she got it & she is now 42 LOL.; Good sense of humor is needed these days

          • well that is good to hear my friend. I’m with you, I will vote for the nominee but hopefully will be Trump or Cruz. Molon Labe!

          • you are absolutely write US Veteran1776 —
            The US is in a disastrous dangerous place right now — the only way out is either of these two men… or both of them working together. Now there’s a mix that could take on the world and fix the US!!
            Keep working and praying for it.
            Hilary Clinton is a liar, a cheat and a woman who will stop at nothing ( I mean literally nothing) to get power. Never forget Benghazi! She let those Americans die – she got the phone calls – 3 times– telling her to get the men out — She turned the other way.
            How could any American forget that ………………….
            BTW she will do it again!!

          • Patriotic USVeteran1776

            Totally agree with you.

      • And in those two areas, he is very correct!

    • I once supported a ban on assault weapons. I could see no reason for owning one. They couldn’t be used to hunt with. But given the way our government is today, I now think every citizen should own at least one. Does that make me some one who flips on an issue, or some one that has the capacity to see the potential threat and adjust accordingly?

      • Patriotic USVeteran1776

        I believe the big difference is you are not running for Control of our country. We all flip-flop throughout our lives. So the real question is can you or I trust someone running for office who carried himself as a Democrat and is now running as a republican? You see, just like obozo fooled many into voting for him, through his ability to capture an audience via speech, the same type of speech being offered by trump (everything we want to hear), We have to be responsible enough to vet every candidate in this election, and choose carefully, if we want to start turning this country around. So no I am not falling for speech (I never did, and thus why I never voted for obozo), I am more concerned with proven tract records. I applause those of you who feel comfortable with trump not just for his speech, but his record.

        • You are right, I am not running for office. However, there is a history of candidates that have run under one party only to switch parties once elected. Even Reagan was a democrat before he was a republican. Many people scoffed at him and his past as a movie star; but in the end he won the election and turned out to be not so bad as a President.
          You use the term “Control of our country” as if the president is the only power. When if fact many Americans are well aware that the real control of our country rest not in the Presidency, but with the special interest groups, big business, and unions. We the PEOPLE have not had control of our government since the rise of such notable Presidents as Lincoln, Wilson, and FDR. We have not exercised or insisted that any President adhere to the concepts or restrictions of the Constitution.
          Yes, Trump says outlandish things. But, he is by no means the suave speaker Obama is with his pre-scripted teleprompter. Trump, whether he wins or looses, has managed to wake up many Americans as to the state of our union. He has highlighted the very things that other political figures want swept under the rug. He has exposed the lies and useless promises may of our political elite have fed us for years.
          Of all the candidates running in this race, none have a spotless track record. Every one of them have flipped on one issue or the other, either to form a consensus or gain a favorable support on an issue. Trump has built an empire, there can be no doubt about that. Dr. Carson was a renown surgeon. Firiano was a CEO. None of them have political records to check or verify.

        • “I applause…”??? The word is applaud!! Are you sure you’re an American, much less a “vet”? You would think you’d have better language skills!

    • Trump sounds like he has at least two brain cells working regarding the gun nuts! Good for him, but he won’t win!

  4. On most issues, Rubio seems a good candidate (assuming, of course, that he’s a “natural born citizen”) However, his insistence on providing a place in our home for the millions of invaders from the south is simply disqualifying. His use of the spurious and now decades old “12 million” figure is misleading and, were he to be elected, my bet is that he’ll opt for a deal with the democommies to allow some sort of amnesty before the border is under control. That just doesn’t work for me or for many other vets.. Invaders are invaders and should be tr eated as such.

    • Stop sugar-coating it and let’s call them what they really are: Criminal Alien Insurgents.

    • Rubio hasn’t stopped working for amnesty since he was on the committee that approved it a few years ago, no matter what he says he is for amnesty, just what we need another 20+ Million more welfare recipients, some one has to pay for the governments largess & it is going to fall once again on the last of the middle class

    • Immigration is part of the UN – New World Order and Global Governance, it needs to be stopped, protest every chance you get and sign petitions. Subscribe to Ann Corcoran’s -Refgugee Resettlement or American Resistance, she lives in Maryland and has good articles. Sometimes she has petitions.

    • Neither of his parents were citizens when he was born. He was born in 1971 and his parents did not become citizens until 1975. At least Cruz’s mom was a US Citizen.

    • Ruio is “Naturalized.” He, “legally” cannot run for the office of POTUS.

  5. TEA/Republicans have a lot more to worry about than just the Presidency, like holding on to the Senate and House majority! If they think a majority of normal Americans will put up with another four years of Republican legislative BS, they don’t deserve to even be legislators!

    • You needn’t worry about loosing the presidency…. Just as it has been in history pass, God will see to it that USA will get what she deserves to complete the destruction of these US for having embraced the abominations of evolution, homosexuality, abortion and the rejection of God’s Holy WORD.

      • Riiiiiight! Another armchair biblical theologian who twists the OT to fit what you want it to say! Sorry, fella, God isn’t interested in your misinterpretation of God’s word. Time for you to move to the New Testament. Now shoo… go bother someone who cares!

        • Were it not for the Old Testament man wouldn’t even know what sin was and the true effects of his sins not only on himself but also on all nations…. Sadly, the average Christian reads only that which is pleasing to his ears… He has no real understanding of the works of the Holy Spirit nor how active God is in the true Christian’ life today..
          Those who rejects God’s WORD will most certainly be judged by all of His WORD. The transgression of just one sin is transgression against all of His Law…

          • Blah blah blah

          • Blah blah blah….

          • What, are you claiming I am forcing you to accept what I am saying? Now that is true ignorance at it worse……… Just wait till the muslims come to your door and demand that you accept Islam or they will kill you… Why is it that ignorance is so contagious among the liberals?

          • 337 MILLION people in the U.S. with just 2.5-3 MILLION being Muslim ….but somehow they are going to take over our nation??? What are you smokin’?

          • Where did I say they were going to take over our nation….? You should read in the Old Testament how God used the heathen nations to come against the Israelites because of their rebellion against God… Daniel 2:21 And He (God) changeth the times and the seasons: He removeth kings, and setteth up kings: He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: God allows man to go his own way for just so long before He intervene… He has never failed to send His warnings of destruction of a nation nor to its people in one way or another before allowing the destruction hoping the people might turn from their wickedness and He would save them. God has been warning USA since the mid 80s.
            After reading the Engineer’s Report of the ’93 WTC #2 Tower Bombing the Holy Spirit spoke through my lips, “They are coming back to “Hit” this #2 Tower again and when they do they will “Take” it to the ground.” I spoke this out for the next 7 years as I travel mostly between Long Island, NY or Boston to Long Beach, Ca. area.
            USA will be destroyed all in God’s timing.
            The 9/11/01 attack was the 1st. of 3 major attacks. The 2nd will be approx. 1000 times that of 9/11 and I believe the 3rd attack will be most likely 40 days later or so later… If your interested in the methods and area for the 2nd attack, Google: “watchman48 RFC Newsletter #101. If you don’t believe in God, Google: “watchman48 The Greater Message” and ask yourself, “How could this have happen if there is no God?”

          • Blah blah blah….

          • Really, that is the best you can come up with…? It certainly isn’t any surprise to me because in the last 25 years I have seen thousands of non-believers and even lukewarm Christians by the thousands deny the awesome works or refuss to investigate the existence of the One True God that has given them life.
            Ignorance will not be an excuse on the Day of Judgment! All will bow before Christ and confess Him as LORD of lords and King of kings one day very soon!

    • Better four more years of republican legislative BS, than a democratic controlled congress that does nothing but impede the legislative process, plays back-up to a tyrannical president, and stymies bills by refusing to allow them on the floor of the legislative.
      The public has been brained washed to think the republicans are responsible when in fact that honor goes to harry reid and president Obama. The true obstructionist in congress was reid and his tabling of bills he did not like, and Obama’s constant threat of veto’s.

      • I do not want a Socialist for President or a crook, traitor Clinton running this country. Her and Billy Boy gave away military secrets to China when he was in the WH. She has already sold mineral rights to to one of our mine’s to the Russians and there is plenty we do not know about what she has done. All we need is for her to get dementia (maybe she already has it) and doesn’t remember what she has done.

        • Good thing there are NO socialists running silly Jay.

          Social Security is Democratic Socialism.

          Medicare is Democratic Socialism.

          Medicaid is Democratic Socialism

          Post Office are Democratic Socialism. (and in the Constitution)

          The US highway system is Democratic Socialism (and in the Constitution)

          our electric grid is Democratic Socialism

          Public Utilities are Democratic Socialism

          the question is, WHY are you such a Dim Bulb in America?

        • “She has already sold mineral rights to to one of our mine’s to the Russians”

          ANOTHER LIE from the fool conservative.

          The Uranium mine was ALREADY Canadian, and the SALE was not in Hillary’s control, moron of the Right.

      • They both have that legal right if the bills smell like crap. Refuse to forward and veto!

  6. I will support Ted Cruz for President. Any of the Conservative Republican candidates would be more qualified then either the socialist democ-RAT or the Hilda beast

    • I like Cruz but, his Canadian birth is a problem IMO. However we now have a 2 term prez that nobody knows for sure where he was born, or where he went to school, or what his background is other than ACORN. So, what the hay!

      • “However we now have a 2 term prez that nobody knows for sure where he was born, or where he went to school, or what his background is other than ACORN”

        SO Frosty is not too bright it seems.

        everyone in the “normal world” knows where Obama was born and where he went to school.

        why are the Right such ignorant meat sacks?

        • You get another blessing, God Loves you anyway

        • Yes,everyone knows that asshole was born in Kenya,filed for foreign student aid,and received it ,asshat.
          Get your facts straight. Even his grandmother said he was born i n Kenya before ovomit told her to quit telling the truth.
          Saw the vidios,ovomit,moochelle,and his grandmother admitted it until he ran for president.

          • Case closed! President Obama indeed is a US citizen… AND Christian! LOLOL @ all the naysayers!!!

          • He has proved that he is a Qu-ran supporter by visiting the terrorist mosque, adding muslims to his staff, and making public statements in favor of Islam. It is BS that having muslims in this country protect us. They are slowly trying to take over our country and if we don’t wake up the U.S. will be in the same shape as France and Germany. Do you trust anyone of them not to rape your women and children. The Qu-ran and their allah endorses rape and murder of all non-believers. There is a reason Obama refuses to say radical muslims because you cannot tell the difference between a radical and a moderate because they all beleve in Allah who while he was alive raped and murdered all non-believers,

          • He’s the president of every single American so visiting a mosque is no different than visiting a Catholic Church. There are American Muslims in this country, approximately 2.3 million of them, so having someone who’s a Muslim on his staff is not an issue. Muslims have been an intrical part of the creation of the United States just like the whites blacks Chinese Irish Italian Native Americans and everybody else.

            Bible verses condoning death of nonbelievers and rape of women…….( oh and don’t bother arguing the Christians only pay attention to the New Testament because they’re constantly pulling up Leviticus against lgbt and Abortion)….
            It always amazes me how many times this God orders the killing of innocent people even after the Ten Commandments said Thou shall not kill. For example, God kills 70,000 innocent people because David ordered a census of the people (1 Chronicles 21).

            God also orders the destruction of 60 cities so that the Israelites can live there. He orders the killing of all the men, women, and children of each city, and the looting of all of value (Deuteronomy 3). He orders another attack and the killing of all the living creatures of the city: men and women, young, and old, as well as oxen sheep, and asses (Joshua 6). In Judges 21 He orders the murder of all the people of Jabesh-gilead, except for the virgin girls who were taken to be forcibly raped and married. When they wanted more virgins, God told them to hide alongside the road and when they saw a girl they liked, kidnap her and forcibly rape her and make her your wife!

            Just about every other page in the Old Testament has God killing somebody! In 2 Kings 10:18-27, God orders the murder of all the worshipers of a different god in their very own church! In total God kills 371,186 people directly and orders another 1,862,265 people murdered

            The God of the Bible also allows slavery, including selling your own daughter as a sex slave (Exodus 21:1-11), child abuse (Judges 11:29-40 & Isaiah 13:16), and bashing babies against rocks (Hosea 13:16 & Psalms 137:9). This type of criminal behavior should shock any moral person.

        • Many lawsuits were filed…and stopped at the Supreme Court. The Supremes wouldn’t take it on. Remember? Obama got his people in.

          http://www.mrconservative.com/2014/04/40309-justice-john-roberts-signed-off-on-obamas-removal-for-treason/

          ​There’s a bombshell of a rumor going around right now that Chief Justice John Roberts has signed off on Interpol to have Obama removed from office for multiple counts of treason.

      • His birth is not a problem. There will be lawsuits, but they will be ineffective. Cruz is an American citizen, native born, in the same way McCain is a native born citizen. You can’t say that about Obama and look how all the lawsuits have collapsed despite genuine merit.

        • He is also a Cuban citizen and a Canadian citizen. The latter does not concern me. The Cuban issue should concern everyone.

          • he is American citizen, not cuban, get your facts straight

            Bless you for thinking though

          • He has triple citizenship: American, Canadian and Cuban.
            Get your facts streight.

          • Cruz Senior became a Canadian citizen when he immigrated there from Cuba. Ted renounced his Canadian citizenship a while back… just as a formality as he never considered himself Canadian. Let’s also remember as far as Rafael Cruz’s support of Castro is concerned is that Castro pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes. He was viewed as a savior for overthrowing Bautista. After Castro had power, he went over to the Communists openly and embraced the USSR as an ally as they would give him what he wanted. Remember the US backed Bautista, which was IMO a mistake. In my book, the jury is still out on Obama’s legitimacy for the Presidency. His mother was American. Period. However, he was formally adopted by her second husband Lolo Soetoro and because of that became an Indonesian citizen. Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro even asked the State Department to remove Barry’s name from her passport because of that. My question (still unanswered) is if and when did Obama reinstate his birthright as a US citizen? If so where is the paperwork to prove that? If he didn’t then he is an illegal alien and not eligible to be President. Any proof out there?

          • OIbama has not, at any time, been an Indonesian citizen.
            Obama was not adopted by Soetoro.

            Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
            Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?
            Bigotry and/or racism?

            Oh, and foolish one, maybe you should look at how Islam handles adoption. naming Obama “Soetoro” would have been a violation of Islamic law.

          • Then why do you suppose H. Clinton brought it up in the first place?

          • Post your proof he was NOT adopted. His mother requested the State Department to remove his name from her US passport. He was a minor. Why do that unless he was then an Indonesian citizen? Sorry, you need to research this.

          • spitting in the wind trying to get the trolllady to actually prove anything since she just calls everyone a liar that she disagrees with -you are correct as far as I am concerned-I must have read the same docs with your presented facts as well. Stick to your guns on this one.

          • Thanks for your support.

          • No proof of anything except to say he applied for financial aid under the guise of being a foreign student. That should say something.
            In my mind, Obama is nothing more than a shill.

          • No proof? Sure. He had all his records sealed before running. Why would someone do that unless they had something to hide? The truth is coming out. You just keep drinking that Kommie Kool-Aid. JMO

          • Thank you!!

          • ROFL… straight is the correct spelling, Doofus! Another home-fooled drop out!

Mr. Dennewitz admitted engaging in sexual acts with the victim and stated he believed she was fourteen or fifteen years old. He also said he knew it was wrong to have sexual relations with the child due to her age. Washington Country, OH Sheriff’s Office.”

          • Damn! Don’ it jus’ figger (sic)??!!! Thank you AKLady!

          • OOO..EEE… such Christian intellectual interlopers, lolol. Another home-fooled idiot w/o parents!

          • I find it interesting that he gave up his Canadian Citizen when he decided to run for POTUS.

          • His mother didn’t consider him to be anything but a U.S. Citizen, and that’s how he was raised to think of himself.

          • Ted Cruz is neither Canadian nor Cuban. Cuban law does not allow you to have dual citizenship, but is removed. When Cruz ran for the Senate, he found out he had dual citizenship with Canada, at which time he removed his citizenship with Canada. Ted Cruz is ONLY a U.S. Citizen.

          • Maybe you should actually look up facts before running your fingers on the keyboard.

        • The following is an excerpt from:
          Ted Cruz’s Father Rafael Supported Fidel Castro (1 of 5)

          http://conservativeamerica-online.com/ted-cruzs-father-rafael-supported-fidel-castro-1-of-5/

          Now that he is running for President of the United States, a lot has been made of the fact that Senator Cruz wasn’t “born on American soil.” But, unlike the issue surrounding Obama’s purported birth in Kenya and its subsequent cover-up, Cruz’s birth in Canada is and was public knowledge, not in the slightest covered up.

          In order to clear up any
          misconceptions, it should be stated, without a doubt, that Ted Cruz is an
          American citizen. Citizen is bestowed by both “soil” and “blood.” For
          individuals not born on American soil, the statues on citizenship are very
          clear. Prior to 1985, to be a American citizen, one of your parents, at
          the time of your birth, must be an American citizen, at least 19 years old and
          must have spent at least 5 of past 10 years in the United States prior to your
          birth.

          Cruz’s mother, Eleanor, certainly
          qualified. That’s why Ted Cruz (and Senator John McCain and the
          late-Senator Barry Goldwater for that matter) is unquestionably a American
          citizen.

          Incidentally, Barack Hussein Obama
          can’t claim citizenship by “blood.” His mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was only 18
          years of age when he was born. For Barack Obama to be a citizen-at-birth,
          it is essential that he was born on U.S. Soil. That’s why the issue of
          the birth certificate became so important. Obama needed proof that he was
          born in Hawaii to be considered a citizen-at-birth.

          Incidentally, Cruz’s mother never
          applied for the Canadian Citizenship that was thrust upon Cruz as she assumed
          that he was only an American Citizen. Not until a Dallas Morning News article
          during his Senate Race appeared, did Cruz even realize that he had Citizenship
          in Canada; and in 2014 Senator Cruz revoked his unsought-after Canadian
          Citizenship.

          Shortly after Cruz’s birth, his
          parents decided to return to Texas. They chose Houston, a city with a strong
          Oil Industry presence, to relocate their seismic-data processing firm for oil
          drillers. Shortly thereafter, Cruz’s father become a Born-Again
          Christian. And, while their marriage had been strained, Senators Cruz’s parents
          stayed together following his father’s acceptance of Jesus Christ into his
          life. Thus, the move to Houston, Texas would shape a great deal of Senator
          Cruz’s current political and religious views.

          • More lies.

          • I’m so sorry if you thought I was saying I agreed with the title of the article. The article has 5 parts to it, and I quoted from a small portion of it. If you read all the parts you’ll see that Cruz’s dad responded the best he could in the position he was in, and at a time when he didn’t yet have Jesus Christ in his heart. You’ll also see that he got away from Cuba when he realized how things were really headed there.

            The article was giving certain facts and bringing the argument that Ted Cruz is eligible to be president.

          • It is not necessary to apologize to someone who believes that a little brown Jew, 2 millennia ago, had supernatural powers, was executed then rose, in a corporal form, to somewhere up into space. Pure poppycock and anyone who believes such nonsense has a mental problem.

          • So sad to hear… The God who created you has a special purpose for you that no one else can fulfill, but most of a very special place in His heart. Praying for you.:)

          • The God and Goddess who created me were my mother and father. That’s it, and when I breathe my last breath, my life will end. I’ll not progress to a new life of eternal bliss nor eternal torture as “believers: would have you think.

          • Oh, yes you will.
            Albert Einstein’s equation says so. ( E=mc2).
            Of, course, factual science is not quite what is taught by religious dogma).

          • He also said something to the effect that if you run in a circle fast enough, you’ll make time recede. That’s unlikely also.

          • Ahhh, the infamous “Thwoop bird.” He flies in ever diminishing circles at an ever increasing velocity, until he finally flies up his own rear with a resounding THWOOP!

          • And you feel so very right in your belief don’t you AKLady. Science has given us much, but it has not given us ethics, values, or a moral compass. It has given us recently PRISM and HAARP, microwave weapons, and RFID’s. And it has given us people who would use these things against us.

          • The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is not a weapon. I pass it frequently. I live within a few miles of it. Moreover, it has been opened for visitors a number of times.
            HAARP is simply a large field which contauns a forest of radio antennas. If you had any facts, whatsoever, you would be aware that HAARP is now a civilian facility. The University of Alaska took it over in August 2015.

            The correct name for what you call “PRISM” is SIGAD US-984XN. It is niot a weapon. It is a data collection system.
            The consporosy idiots have done a number on you. Lord knows, you are well brainwashed.

            Our government is not perfect. No government is. However, it is better than the majority.

            Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) does not involve microwaves. It is not a weapon. Radio waves are not microwaves. It is a tracking system. It is a commercial sustem.

            You people should at least try to stay up to date. Your post is quite laughable.
            .
            If you dislike America so much that you feel the need to repeat lies against it, I suggest you more soenwhere else.
            Please do that as soon as possible, tonight would be excellent.

          • Thank you…I didn’t know any of that!!

          • No, Ed. What could be valuable to you are components of the Hindu experience where they pop out of their bodies freely and wonder about. To create order in your experience you have maintained one point of view without testing any other. That way you can remain solid in your own point of view, and wrongly, assuming you hold an absolute truth.

            Deal with it.

          • I am beyond agnosticism. I am an atheist and have been for over 60 years. I see no reason to study religion in any form. I don’t study whether a 4 leaf clover will bring me good luck and I don’t wear amulets to ward of bad luck. In my mind religion was formed by wealthy, educated people to control ignorant plebeians. So, in answer to your demand, I don’t have to deal with it. I simply ignore it. I am elated to discover that you are a fellow non-believer.

          • Ed: And so we were taught in college Sociology, that religion was used by the clergy along with the kings to control the masses. And then we have Karl Marx telling us “Religion is the opiate of the masses,” saying further that it was the soul in soulless conditions. So then God sent us Groucho Marx to lighten us up a bit. heh 😉

          • President Grant was loyal to the laws of his own country, and he taught that the Constitution of the United States had been instituted by God. “From my childhood days,” he said, “I have understood that we believe absolutely that the Constitution of our country was an inspired instrument, and that God directed those who created it and those who defended the independence of this nation.”1

            At the time of President Grant’s service as an Apostle and as President of the Church, the Church’s population consisted predominantly of people in the United States of America. Thus, much of what he said about government concerned the United States. However, his teachings are statements of truth that can be applied throughout the world.

            Teachings of Heber J. Grant
            Latter-day Saints should support their government leaders and obey the laws of their lands.

            I am convinced beyond the shadow of a doubt that it is the duty of every Latter-day Saint to sustain and live the law.2

            Following is the declaration of the Church contained in Section 134 of the Doctrine and Covenants, regarding our belief in governments and laws in general, as adopted by a unanimous vote of a general assembly of the Church over a century ago:

            “We believe that governments were instituted of God for the benefit of man, and that he holds men accountable for their acts in relation to them, both in making laws and administering them, for the good and safety of society.

            “We believe that no government can exist in peace, except such laws are framed and held inviolate as will secure to each individual the free exercise of conscience, the right and control of property, and the protection of life.

            “We believe that all governments necessarily require civil officers and magistrates to enforce the laws of the same, and that such as will administer the law in equity and justice should be sought for and upheld by the voice of the people, if a republic, or the will of the sovereign.

            Casting a ballot
            In our nations and communities, we should do all we can to elect good leaders and enact good laws.

            “We believe that religion is instituted of God, and that men are amenable to him, and to him only, for the exercise of it, unless their religious opinions prompt them to infringe upon the rights and liberties of others; but we do not believe that human law has a right to interfere in prescribing rules of worship to bind the consciences of men, nor dictate forms for public or private devotion; that the civil magistrate should restrain crime, but never control conscience; should punish guilt, but never suppress the freedom of the soul.

            “We believe that all men are bound to sustain and uphold the respective governments in which they reside, while protected in their inherent and inalienable rights by the laws of such governments; and that sedition and rebellion are unbecoming every citizen thus protected, and should be punished accordingly; and that all governments have a right to enact such laws as in their own judgments are best calculated to secure the public interest; at the same time, however, holding sacred the freedom of conscience.

            “We believe that every man should be honored in his station: rulers and magistrates as such, being placed for the protection of the innocent, and the punishment of the guilty; and that to the laws, all men owe respect and deference, as without them peace and harmony would be supplanted by anarchy and terror; human laws being instituted for the express purpose of regulating our interests as individuals and nations, between man and man, and divine laws given of heaven, prescribing rules on spiritual concerns, for faith and worship, both to be answered by man to his Maker.

            “We believe that rulers, states, and governments, have a right, and are bound to enact laws for the protection of all citizens in the free exercise of their religious belief; but we do not believe that they have a right, in justice, to deprive citizens of this privilege, or proscribe them in their opinions, so long as a regard and reverence are shown to the laws, and such religious opinions do not justify sedition nor conspiracy.

            “We believe that the commission of crime should be punished according to the nature of the offense; that murder, treason, robbery, theft, and the breach of the general peace, in all respects, should be punished according to their criminality and their tendency to evil among men, by the laws of that government in which the offense is committed; and for the public peace and tranquility, all men should step forward and use their ability in bringing offenders against good laws to punishment.

            “We do not believe it just to mingle religious influence with civil government, whereby one religious society is fostered, and another proscribed in its spiritual privileges, and the individual rights of its members as citizens, denied.” [D&C 134:1–9.]

            Please remember that this was published way back in 1835, as the position of the Church, and it has never changed.3

          • He’s talking about religion in education….I could quote you 35 more of the founding fathers and others who clearly state we are NOT a Christian nation and they should be kept separate.

          • “If I could conceive that the general government might ever be so administered as to render the liberty of conscience insecure, I beg you will be persuaded, that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution.”
            ~Founding Father George Washington, letter to the United Baptist Chamber of Virginia, May 1789

          • Suggest you learn the difference between an athist and an agnostic. One denies, the other questions.

          • Actually, Richard Dawkins answered that question. He says it is impossible for one to be a true Atheist because one has no way of knowing, without question, that there is no God, so essentially, atheists are but agnostics. So have no doubt that I know the difference. I’ve been studying this mess for over 60 years. I don’t have all the answers but I do have a bunch.

          • LOL….I totally understand!

          • And I am a confirmed agnostic, Ed, and am happy in my unfinished belief system. I think you’re ok with yours, I think the Christian is ok with his/hers. So where’s the beef?

          • I also studied Comparative Religions. I found it quite interesting.

          • 1Ed – I wonder as to how many hour have you spent investigating the possibility of there being a God. The one who is staking is eternal life that claims to know something but has never applied himself to find the truth would be the one with the mental problem…
            There was an atheist, who received a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in a Law degree from Yale Law School by the name of Lee Strobel… Strobel went on a two year investigation to prove there is nothing to an all knowing God… Lee wrote “The Case for Faith” and “The Case for Christ” books you should read or you could go to YouTube and type that in the search bar…. You soul is in great jeopardy.

          • If I count the hours since I have discovered there is no God, No Heaven, No Hell, No Satan, no angels, etc, etc. I recon it to be something in excess of 525,600 hours. However I’m not saying I have spent that much time trying to decide whether or not God exists That total time would be about 48 hours or less. I’m not interested in what others say about religion. I know what I believe and, more importantly, what I don’t believe. If an Evangelist says he know God, I don’t believe him. If an atheist tells me he has discovered God. I don’t believe him. I am not a simpleton so I have not need in believing in something I cannot see or that others cannot prove. You cannot prove there is a God and in religion as in most things, I require PROOF!

          • You don’t oxygen nor gravity but I am most certain you believe in them…. I don’t believe in religion which is man’s efforts in reaching out to God. True Christian faith is knowing it is God that reaches out to man. So, please tell m; why should God reveal Himself to someone that doesn’t make an effort to know Him let alone someone that is denying every thing that He has already shown him… Life, creation in its self… Life begets life of its own kind… Scientific facts that were written in the Bible 2000 years before scientists had even proven them to be true..
            I certainly had doubts… I came within only a second or two of murdering a co-worker in June ’78 with my hands within an inch or two of pushing Dan to his death.. Suddenly the lights went out, not in the building we were in but in me… I closed my eyes and shook my head and opened my eyes to see my 4yr old daughter and my 8yr. old son standing in a garden setting maybe 10′ in front of me… They both reached out to me saying, “No Daddy, no! No Daddy, no!” I closed my eyes and shook my head and opened my eyes to see Dan.. and I backed away from him… I have had several super natural happenings and several of them even with witnesses… In Jan.’91 He showed me the entrances to Hell 3 times each night for 3 nights in a row… He was showing me that as a lukewarm Christian I was bound for Hell…
            Please Google: “watchman48 The Greater Message” and come back and tell me how I could I have known what I told the young lady on Sunday morning what I told her…
            God offers many opportunities for man to believe but He will never ever force Himself onto anyone….

          • “You don’t oxygen nor gravity but I am most certain you believe in them.” That is a very poor analogy. You can’t see O2 but you’ll die in seconds without it. You can’t see gravity but you’d go flying into space without it. As powerful as you think religion is, you’ll have to admit one can live without it. I have done so for over 60 years.

            “True Christian faith is knowing it is God that reaches out to man.” How can one KNOW it is God that does that? “please tell me, why should God reveal Himself to someone that doesn’t make an effort to know Him let alone someone that is denying every thing that He has already shown him.” I thought the great thing about God is that he loves even those who do not love him, or maybe that was just Jesus who claimed to also be God. My mother was a devout Christian. She was a leader in our Methodist church for many years. God didn’t allow her to die a peaceful, simple death, She suffered untold agonies from bone cancer, breast cancer and finally succumbing to lung cancer. What kind of God would do that to one who loved him? My dear wife died an equally unpleasant death, leukemia. A God who would do that to a good, loving person is, in my estimation, a horrible monster. I don’t want to believe that so I chose to believe He doesn’t even exist. I have lived a good life, not nearly as good a life that my Mom and my wife lived. I am in exceptional health. no major illness nor infirmities and I do not believe in God yet I’m closing in on 90 years of age. Where is the spiritual justice in that? No, my friend, religion is bullshit and it would be better for you to accept it now than face that extreme disappointment when your last breath is exhaled.

          • Ed: Ever had a hunch? It’s kind of like that.

          • I am sorry for your losses…. God doesn’t promise us a painless life, in fact He promises us there will be trails and tribulations that we must go through. I agree life is very unfair at times… And it certainly looks to me at times that it is the most innocent that suffers the most. I think it was Jan. ’92 at the age of 14 that I accepted Christ as my LORD… Jan. ’67 I had a 4mo. old niece to die and I grew to hate God for the next 24 years. I attended church because of my Mother and later my wife but my heart certainly wasn’t in it..
            God continued to draw me back to Himself in many amazing spiritual happenings but I was extremely rebellious… Seeing the entrances to Hell that I wrote about earlier was the final straw that I couldn’t deny… I final humbled myself and fell upon my knees and repented for all my pass sins…. after doing this I crawled back into bed and immediately went back into my nightmare but this time I was standing in the depths of earth before the entrances to Hell and suddenly a pair of hands appeared before me… I climbed into His hands and He begin raising me back to the surface of the earth and into the light… Since that event I have never looked back from HIs amazing Grace and Love He has shown me…
            We inherited the sin nature, thus we all are sinners.
            My friend religion is man made thinking he must do this or that to be worthy to God… Man can never ever be worthy of God’s Love…. True faith is understanding that and knowing it is only by God’s grave that we can come to Him clothed by Yeshua’ righteousness…. How can we even image that our ways and understanding should be equal to God’s..? He is our creator, all knowing, seeing the pass, present and future….
            I was raised in a Methodist Church, but they as with many churches today have fallen so far in accepting the sins of the world… The Holy Spirit lead me to an Assemblies of God Church and here I have found a real connection with God and other believers..
            To know God and His desires for your life one must read or study His WORD daily… In doing this I use The Bible Pathway Ministries Daily Devotional (You can Google) guide for the last 18 plus years… or you can find this at Christianity dot com.
            I will be praying for you.

          • I’ll not get into a protracted debate with you about religion. You have it. I do not. I am just as sure there is no God as you are that there is. You cannot offer proof of His existence except for “feelings” you have. I don’t need that, so there’s no reason for me to believe in a mythical entity that NO ONE has been able to prove actually exists. There have been innumerable Gods throughout history and they have all disappeared except one and that one will be gone as people become more enlightened, Then, I suspect, some eloquent fraud will invent another one.

          • The proof is given within the Bible itself – It is in the investigation by Lee Strobel in his books, The Case for Faith and The Case for Christ – It is in the scientific facts written in the Bible 200 years before they were proven by scientist – It is written in creation….
            I wonder, why is it that the vast majority hates the truth…? But then I remember how the vast majority in the world has always hated the greatest truth of all: “The truth of God existence.” They love their own sins more than anything or anyone else. They would much rather embrace a lie if that would help them to achieve their own goals and desires…. not understanding that this denial is more destructive to themselves in the long run than to the others that they are hurting at the moment.

          • So, you accept something written in a book as being true? How about the Mad Hatter, the talking caterpillar and the Jabberwocky? are they real characters because they all appeared in Alice in Wonderland, a book? Lee Strobel is a Christian apologist who attempts to explain the unexplainable. In other words, he is a man with a message. No more, just as Jesus was a man with a message, no more. You say the vast majority “hates the truth” What is “The Truth”? Is it simply what you believe? You are a man, also and subject to error. Show me the truth. Show me factual proof that God, Jesus, Heaven, etc. etc. are real. You cannot. Faith alone cannot do the job because faith is unreal also. No one in the past two thousand plus years has been able to offer solid proof that anything ordained in the bible is true. And now an Evangelist in the 21st Century has taken on the job of explaining the unexplainable. Good luck with that.

          • Oops, you didn’t catch my mistake 3 days ago where I said I accepted Christ at 14 in an.’92… (That should have been in Jan. ’62) And than I lost a 4mo. old niece in Jan. ’67 – That would have been impossible….

            And I believe I mentioned earlier, I do not have a religion, I have great faith in the life of Christ Jesus.

            How hard is it to understand… There are no absolute true facts in any fairy tales that I have ever found, whereas there are many, many facts found in the Bible which you wish to ignore… Were you blind and deaf you would not be held guilty on Judgment Day; however we know you can see and read; thus you will have no excuses no Judgment Day..

          • You seem to have left out Bertrand Russell’s Teapot orbiting the sun!

          • Vast right wing conspiracy. That sounds familiar Edbird.

          • They are in a better place . You , maybe , not so much . It’s called FAITH . Self-will is a bitch .

          • My mother is in a better place? She’s decomposed in the ground at an abandoned cemetery in rural Alabama. My wife, at least is in the Pacific ocean between Kihei, Maui and the extinct volcano, Molokini. My two kids and I spread her ashes in a place she loved. That’s where they are and there’s no use in trying to convince me they are in a place of fluffy clouds with angels flitting hither and yon. It won’t work. They are, as are other members of my family dead and no longer existent in any form, corporal or ethereal. You are setting yourself up for the greatest disappointment by believing otherwise. Well, maybe not a disappointment. Disappointment is for existent entities. Corpses no longer exist as humans, just garbage that must be disposed of. There’s no reason for it nor is there ANY proof that any form of afterlife exists. This belief was brought about by men who believed they were more perfect than other primates. When one dies, one is dead and no longer exists.

          • As I said , Self Will is a Bitch . Peace .

          • So you’re the type who can take anything another person writes and say, “Yeah that proves what I was saying. I’m right and you are wrong!” I’ve known guys like you for 75 years and I’m still not impressed.

          • How do you know if you’re right ? Don’t confuse me with someone that cares WHAT you think , because your path is chosen . Peace anyway .

          • I can tell you’re someone who doesn’t care what I think because you never post something that says you don’t care what I think!!

          • Do not under any circumstances tell Monica’s good friend Bill. He has led a pristine life thinking he will be among the Angels.

          • Believe in oxygen and gravity? No, I experience them, and that’s the key. If you do not experience a god or a god experience, the a god is non existent for you kiddo. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. It just means you are not open to it, which will make you feel very lofty. So, have at it. Who cares?

          • Very interesting story, Watchman. For me, I know God not as a Christian, but as It being Intention, Cause, and effect. The result of cause and effect are view-able. (Proof). But intention is trickier. The Christ came along to help folks feel not so helpless. Then came Humanism, which Christians seem to not like and for the life of me I don’t know why, but that took the oppressive feeling of guilt for having been born in sin from us.

          • The plan for man’s salvation through the preicious Blood of Christ was set even before the foundation of the world was set in motion as we are told in the Bible…
            Jesus came to testify to this truth and to show us the only way to God was through Him and no one else…
            Humanism is man’s belief that he is basically good and man can achieve or solve all humans problems… But God’s WORD tells us in Jeremiah 17:9, The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
            Man is helpless on his own, there is nothing we can do that would make us worthy of God’s Love.. it is only by God’s Grace that we can be accepted, not by works but only through the righteousness of Christ Jesus who we accepted as our LORD and Savior.

          • Blah blah blah

          • I will never argue “my belief” vs. someone else’s belief. It is a very personal matter.
            Each of us finds our own way one way or the other.

          • I think heaven, hell, saint, sinner, angels exist by postulate. One can play with the idea and see what one gets.

          • Ed, also harsh. Because the Christian does not agree with your point of view does not make them wrong. No one has a corner on the market in the area of belief systems. Yours appears to be either atheist or agnostic. It matters not which. Try to not be so smug about your own belief system. Each belief system has within in it outcomes that are both interesting and valuable.

          • Ahh Marcia. If a Christian could offer me concrete, undeniable evidence that there is a God, I would be willing to run amok among non-believers screaming, God is real! I have seen him (assuming God is a him)! It’s not that I’m smug, but I have walked this earth for a long, long time and have seen no evidence that there is a supreme being (with the possible exception of Donald Trump). Give me PROOF! Give me EVIDENCE or give it up. Not agreeing with my “point of view” does not make Christians wrong. Being wrong makes them wrong. Ask a member of the Assembly of God religion to offer evidence of His existence and they cannot! They cannot because there is no evidence because God doesn’t exist, just as Zeus didn’t exist, just as Thor didn’t exist, just as none of the myriad of Gods and Goddesses in human history never existed. I am so disappointed with so many of my fellow humans who find it impossible to live a life as a human without believing in a non-human entity who controls their every thought and movement, It is pathetic!

          • Gee EdMedow83, why should they bother trying to convince you of anything? You already have your firm belief system! Christianity is a set of organized ethics. It helps people make decisions. Let them be, Ed. They’re harmless, sweet people.

          • Thank you for saying that!

          • I have no idea what you are talking about…Would you explain in more depth please.

          • That was exceptionally hard for the Cruz Family…It still doesn’t change the facts he was born in Canada.

          • The basic law reads. He has to be born by TWO PARENTS both born on American Soil.

          • That was a loving and wise move his dad did for his family.
            It still changes nothing as far as Cruz being eligible for President.

          • It’s OK to say that I am not a Christian. I would take that as a compliment. I hold no superstition whatsoever!

          • No superstition? Awww, Ed. You’re missing all the fun!

          • Maybe so, but it’s “fun” I’m delighted to miss!

          • Funny thing, Ed, Christianity is a way of life, not a religion.
            Religion is big business.
            True Christianity is not about the man named Jesus, but the way of life he taught. There are many “relgious” and very few Christians. Mother Teresa of Calcutta was a Christian,

          • What about Ted Cruz? He says he’s a Christian. Seriously, one can lead the life of a Christian but not be a Christian. I consider myself a good person, too old to be otherwise, but I am not a Christian.

          • We may be grateful for that!

          • You cannot be a good person and a communist, because they are only socialists with a smile.

          • 3rd Circuit Court deemed Cruz Eligible . Shut tfu .

          • Chikdish foul language.
            I am so not impressed.
            Maybe you should try acting like the adult.

          • Won’t change the fact that you’re an IDIOT ! “Chikdish”?

          • Maybe you should try acting like the adult.

          • Like you ! . . . r r right !

          • Any points you make now will be ignored because you don’t argue with facts…when anyone has to stoop to name calling, you’ve already lost the debate.

          • Don’t confuse me with someone who give a rats . . . what you think .

          • You are welcome.

          • Pls provide a reference for this court action. I must have missed it.

          • Thank you!!! I musta missed it too!

          • Stop trying to reason with left wing TROLLS!

          • More about exposing their ignorance than trying to reason . It’ actually quite amusing , if it were’nt so sad .

          • Get that for us so we can read it for ourselves. Why is it Cruz people that don’t upload any legal precendent. I did…His own LAW professor at HARVARD SAID HE WASN’T

            …”When Cruz was my constitutional law student at Harvard, he aced the course after making a big point of opposing my views in class — arguing stridently for sticking with the “original meaning” against the idea of a more elastic “living Constitution” whenever such ideas came up. I enjoyed jousting with him, but Ted never convinced me — nor did I convince him.

            At least he was consistent in those days. Now, he seems to be a fair weather originalist, abandoning that method’s narrow constraints when it suits his ambition”… ~ Laurence H Tribe (Harvard)

            Get your heart out of the way…and think about the Country and our Constitution, Bill of Rights.

          • YOU BEAR FALSE WITNESS! YOU KNOW NOT WHAT YOU SPEW! I would suggest you take a little more time to get your story together (meaning do a bit of research) before you spew forth UNTRUTHS. TED CRUZ IS ELIBIBLE TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT! You may not like it, but LEGAL FACTS are LEGAL FACTS.

          • Do you mean people who come up with actual Laws? They are trolls because we think you are incorrect? Those people?

          • Frosty I want to read the transcript for the court…or it doesn’t mean a thing.
            Circuit court?
            —–
            I just went to the Circuit Court and didn’t find the case. You’ll have to retrieve it for us to have any credibility.

          • Oops. O I C. My bad.

          • AKLady: Harsh. They vetted Obama even with his ties to Saul Alinsky, his parents to the communist party (which is why we check the background of a candidate). They did a very poor job on him, indeed.

          • You have been well brainwashed.
            Alinsky died in 1972.

            Obama was born in 1961.
            The two never met.

            Obama’s so-called “organizing” had abslutely nothign to do with Alinsky. Obama was employed by the Catholic Church. In that employment he worked with the impoverished to improve their living conditions.

            He was also an attorney with the law firm Miner, Barnhill & Galland. The firm specialized in political and civil rights work and neighborhood economic development work.
            Obama’s parents were not associated with the Communist Party,

            Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
            Why doyou believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

          • You are accusing someone who lies and it is NOT false witness. STOP USING THE BIBLE TO ACCUSE PEOPLE when you have no idea what the truth is. Cruz is VERY excitable to watch…that does not make him legal to run for POTUS.
            NONE…NO ONE STOPPED OBAMA….NO ONE WILL STEP INTO STOP CRUZ EITHER.

          • You state “For individuals not born on American soil, the STATUES on citizenship are very clear.” Article I Section 8 Clause 4 states that Congress shall have power “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization,…”. The STATUES on citizenship you profess are “Rules of Naturalization” . Since there are only two classes of US citizens, (natural born and naturalized) how can Cruz be a “natural born Citizen” eligible to be President when a naturalization STATUE (as you state) makes him a naturalized US citizen. It was a naturalization act of Congress that allowed Canadian born Cruz to be a US citizen. With your own words you are contradicting yourself by claiming Cruz is a “natural born Citizen” that is a naturalized citizen. And you say “In order to clear up any misconceptions,” .

          • Ok, why was the qualification written? The purpose of wanting the prospective president to be a naturally born citizen was to attempt to prevent the country being taken over by the family of another country through progeny. Anyone feared Canada lately? True, Cruz was not born on American Soil, as were several others, but as with others, he was born to an American parent. This has not thus far been argued before the Supreme Court, so my bias is still with Cruz. I will not vote for a man who campaigns on claims alone, “Look at my poll numbers, look how I can make things BIG, Look how I can talk with anyone!” Nah. That’s telling people what they want to hear and being the man on a white horse coming to rescue them. Let’s get into the real world, folks.

          • My bias is for supporting and defending the US Constitution. I don’t believe it should be trampled on just because you want to put an ineligible candidate first rather than the US Constitution. The Democrats from 2003 to 2008 attempted six or seven times to remove or change the “natural born Citizen” clause. Since they failed to get that done, they are now using liberal, so called, legal scholars to water the words “natural born Citizen” to mean something unnatural. There is no such thing as a naturalized by law “natural born citizen” they proclaim.

          • Fearing Canada is not the point. It is what can be held as a “Legal Precedent” if both Obama then Cruz get away with it.
            No matter how much we like Cruz, we have to consider the COUNTRY and The Constitution first and foremost!

            What I don’t understand is….Cruz is/was a GREAT LAWYER. We NEED a GREAT Attorney General. Have you read anything about who we have now? My Lord! Disaster!

          • You are making “excuses for him.” What if next time everyone;makes excuses for a Russian? Or, someone from India who moves here? That is not out of the realm of possibility.

            Canada IS a great…let me change that…Canada WAS GREAT…Now Canada has a Liberal as a Prime Minister.

            And you haven’t checked lately OR you are dreaming…Trump is still ahead in the Polls.

          • Cruz never followed through with the Naturalization. Had he? A Naturalized Citizen cannot run for POTUS.

            Jindal and Rubio are Naturalized Citizens and, legally cannot run for POTUS.

          • Cruz claims he is a “natural born citizen” according to naturalization law Title 8 U.S.C. 1401. That law declares Cruz to be a “citizen of the United States at birth”. Cruz and others ASSUME that a “natural born Citizen” and “citizen of the United States at birth” are the same thing which they are NOT. If Cruz is relying on a naturalization law to make him “natural born” then he is professing himself to be a naturalized “natural born Citizen that happens to be impossible. Title 8 U.S.C. 1401 is nothing more than an exemption law allowing certain persons (as described in that law) to skip the formal naturalization process showing residency, testing and pledge of allegiance. Just because Cruz did not go through some sort of formal naturalization process does not mean he wasn’t naturalized. Keep in mind that the 14th Amendment was a naturalization amendment adopted by Congress and the States to grant US citizenship to slaves. These slaves were NOT required to go through the formal naturalization process. To say Cruz is NOT a naturalized citizen because he did not go through the formal naturalization process is a fallacy. If the Title 8 U.S.C. 1401 naturalization law was not made, Cruz would be considered an alien or foreigner requiring the formal process.

          • 100% Correct!!

          • Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah! You are such a TROLL

          • Your the troll if you don’t even understand the laws. You are being selfish wanting your own way vs. what is the legal Constitutional Way.

            Cruz’s Professor at Harvard-Senator Ted Cruz Was For The Constitution, Before He Turned Against It…

            …”When Cruz was my constitutional law student at Harvard, he aced the course after making a big point of opposing my views in class — arguing stridently for sticking with the “original meaning” against the idea of a more elastic “living Constitution” whenever such ideas came up. I enjoyed jousting with him, but Ted never convinced me — nor did I convince him.

            At least he was consistent in those days. Now, he seems to be a fair weather originalist, abandoning that method’s narrow constraints when it suits his ambition”… ~ Laurence H Tribe (Harvard)

          • We’ll see. It will be a moot question when he doesn’t win.

          • Ted Cruz is the most equipped to do the job that must be down to save our nation from the devastation that is in right now!

          • Citizenship is now left up to the Supreme Court because the Constitution needs to be legally clarified because it can be interpreted in different ways. The Supreme Court does not want to rule on this issue because of Obama and we all know that the Supreme Court with its Muslims is corrupt. Cruz and Rubio have been caught in voter fraud and lies against Ben Carson. Conservatives have had it with corrupt establishment political Republicans. We want someone who is not political and paid for and will make America great again! Donald Trump for President!!!

          • The Supreme Court ruled on citizenship a long time ago.

          • there would be no Issue it Cruz would stop attacking the DC CARTEL and referring to them as the CARTEL, which they are.
            both parties a corrupt and hijacked by other groups, mainly the Progressive movement and that’s exactly what Hitlary is, she runs on a DemoRAT ticket but no Dem. Sanders took her place for the DemoRAT party and she steps in as a Dem. which is FALSE. hitlary is a Progressive, she has admitted it, told us right out the same time obama admitted he was not a Dem, he was a Progressive. Why is hitlary getting away with this? She can’t win if she runs as a Progressive. We need 3rd party. Very few Dem almost none. Very few Republicans and the Republican that are in office can’t affectively do their jobs and can’t expose the Progressive movement or they will be blackballed, IRS investigations, Faulse accusations to bring them down. Once they put out a story it’s hard to recover from it because there are some that will believe it and won’t let it go. it will be used agains them even thou evidence proves their innocence.

          ONAIROBI, Kenya — Fulfilling the hopes of millions of Kenyans, Barack Obama returned to his father’s homeland Friday for the first time as US president, a long sought visit by a country that considers him a local son.

          The president spent the evening reuniting with his Kenyan family, including his elderly step-grandmother who made the trip to the capital of Nairobi from her rural village. US and Kenyan flags lined the main road from Nairobi’s airport, and billboards heralding Obama’s trip dotted the city.

          “I don’t think that Kenyans think of Obama as African-American. They think of him as Kenyan-American,” said EJ Hogendoorn, deputy program director for Africa at the International Crisis Group.bama returns to Kenya, reunites with father’s family

            Under Obama, diplomatic relations were restored. The United States, however, continues to maintain its commercial, economic, and financial embargo, which makes it illegal for U.S. corporations to do business with Cuba.

          • reading the msm’s talking points supporting obozo’s decision to re-unite with Communist Cuba, doesn’t qualify as “knowledge” troll. you need to ‘better educate” yourself on history first, then apply that to what is happening now-you are merely an obamabot gleefully spitting out whatever gems you hear from the biased liberal media that supports every despicable thing this POS pres has done in the last 8 years.

            ​The bloated federal agency charged with feeding the poor—and er​adi​c​ating “food insecurity” in the U.S.—blew nearly​​ $7 billion to provide “ineligible recipients” with the welfare benefit and there appears to be no end in sight to the fleecing.

            ​​​​​​​​In fact, the agency, t​​he U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), has for years violated a measure known as the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act (IPERA) that requires agencies to conduct annual risk assessments to identify programs that make “significant improper payments” of $10 million or more. Not only has the USDA violated IPERA in the last four years, it also refuses to implement a more efficient verification process before doling out benefits by asserting that it would “create barriers for families that need help.”
            ​Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to eliminate the stigma of welfare and the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) which cost American taxpayers a whopping ​​$16 billion in 2014. ​​Of the $6.9 billion in fraudulent payments made by the USDA, those two programs accounted for $4.2 billion. Thus, they have been coined “high-risk programs,” according to the USDA watchdog.

            Parkland Memorial Hospital

            Dallas’ Parkland Memorial Hospital is familiar even to many non-Texans as the site where both President John F. Kennedy and his assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald (who was himself shot by Jack Ruby), were transported for emergency life-saving procedures in November 1963. Now Parkland Memorial is well known for its maternity program, which includes nine prenatal clinics and employs 72 doctors training.

            Uninsured Hispanic immigrants with uncertain immigration status have flocked in recent years to public hospital emergency rooms and maternity wards in Texas, California and other border states. Their care has swelled costs for struggling hospitals and increased the health care bills that fall to states and counties, giving ammunition
            become obstetricians-gynecologists and 45 nurse-midwives. According to the Dallas Morning News, in 2005 Parkland Memorial staff delivered 15,590 babies, an average of more than n to opponents of illegal immigration who complain of undue burdens on local taxpayers.

            EVEN IF they were getting assistance, you can’t buy TWO new cars on $500 per month.

            MAYBE Texans need to do a better job of policing the welfare rolls, since it is YOUR citizens that are letting illegals get things they are not entitled to.

          • …AND Parkland Hospital is never paid by the Illegals who go there to have their babies. THEY DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT…..It is the SAME natural born argument.

            BOTH PARENTS HAVE TO HAVE BEEN BORN IN THE U.S.

          • Bullshit!!! Any child born on American soil is considered a US citizen. If what you are saying was true then 99% of the country would not be citizens because the only ones who would qualify would be Native Americans! That’s just like I was pregnant while stationed in Germany with my husband and going to a German doctor and hospital for services because of our location. If my son had been born in a German hospital (vs on U.S. base) he would have had German citizenship in addition to the US citizenship of having both parents American. Every country has in there law that if a child is born on their soil, it’s a citizen of that country. And there are American citizens who go to hospitals without medical insurance and have a kid and the hospital has to cover the cost of it so it’s not just immigrants that do that.

      I am so not inpressed.
      On the other hand, it is nice that you left out the foul langiage.

    • Ted Cruz, Donald Trump et al are a waste of good air, water and food. They should be exterminated. Not just the “leaders” but all who support them!

  7. Trump has succeeded in making a mess of this election, never before have we had a crybaby trashing everyone so he can be the candidate. Hope everyone opens their eyes to what’s been going on.

    • Have you considered that trashing everyone is part of the game geared toward the same goal? Though not as loud as Trump, none of the other candidates but two have engaged in the same game plan.

    • I agree! If I must, I’ll vote for Trump. However, I’m getting tired of his act! Now he says Cruz stole the Iowa election! Whenever Trump is confronted with a specific question, he reminds us how he’s doing in the poles!

  8. The anti-Trumpers shouldn’t get too excited about Iowa. According to Hot Air, Trump basically half-assed his Iowa campaign, didn’t spend nearly the time or money that Cruz spent in Iowa, and still came in second. I’m not saying I would vote for Trump at the moment; I’m just looking at this realistically. Cruz doesn’t stand to fare as well in New
    Hampshire or South Carolina as he did in Iowa. There’s a long way to the finish. Winning Iowa doesn’t ensure the nomination, as the past indicates.

    • Even Reagan lost Iowa.

      This Poll is the result of “Iowa Citizens.”

      Donald Trump – 28%

      Cruz – 23%

      http://conservativetribune.com/iowa-poll-new-candidate/

    • You failed to mention, Donald Trumps petulant Temper Tantrum. Very sophomoric of him

      • You’re right. Trump is his own worst enemy with his mouth. He needs to get past crying every time he thinks that someone said something bad about him. This is politics; things like that are going to happen. He lost Iowa because he counted on the publicity he generates to bring people to the polls to vote for him. If Trump loses the Republican nomination, it will be because he has done himself in with his mouth and come across as a blustering celebrity with no clue of how to run a country. Some of his ideas are good but others need work. Let’s take one, for example. Besides, “we’re going to bomb the sh*t out of ISIS,” what other substance does he offer? Take away their oil and their wealth? Like no other candidate has thought of that? Can’t he lay out more specifics? I haven’t seen a whole lot of ’em from him. Either I’m just not reading the right articles or any such specifics aren’t there.
        Anyway, like I said, I was just looking at the situation from this point realistically.

  9. “At some point, the entrenched liberalism will be irreversible. ” ………
    ….. And at this point is the time for a revolution !

    • Michael Dennewitz

      It’s a hell of a lot closer than many imagine!!!

      • closer to NEVER, silly con.

        No one came to help the “patriots” in Oregon, who went home with their tails between their legs,
        (unless they were in orange jumpsuits or a pine box, that is.)

        I in 14 Americans bought a new car.
        the all time record is 1 in 15.

        THAT sounds like the country is ready for revolution.

    • Riiiiiiight!! Take a peeky-peek at the Malheur stumblebum Bundy brave boyz vs. the USA government!! Please, start a revolution… I’ll provide the popcorn!

  10. The dismal outcome of a Rubio presidency is the same as extending the Obama policies for another four years. Rubio is for open borders even when he tongue and cheek says he will fight for our safety. How can allowing more illegals, or who’s origins are unknown be in the interest of national security? He has yet to tell the truth about his stance on the illegal aliens and visa overstays currently here. In fact, he still supports his amnesty program. He supports an increase in VISA holders that are “better educated” than American workers, ignoring that many of those “better educated” foreign workers were trained in our schools. His alliances in the Senate are mostly composed of the “Gang of Eight”. Rubio is a social climber, pretty face, pretty speech, but little substance.

  11. Rubio I believe is a good American, but not one I can trust to stop the Liberal socialist movement that the Demo rats seem to want to use to destroy the real America. Rubio if you care what Americans want and not what politicians want (in their bank accounts) Then prove you will stop this destruction of America and how will you do it. Immigration is ok, but it must be done as legal actions, not some idict by politicians. Where is the real American politicians, and who will stop this Presidential edits! You Presidential wanabe’s need to standup against the Demo Rats. We want our true America back, or you will face the consequences of an angry America.

    • “but not one I can trust to stop the Liberal socialist movement that the Demo rats seem to want to use to destroy the real America.”

      you seem very ILL INFORMED about America.

      Social Security is Democratic Socialism.

      Medicare is Democratic Socialism.

      Medicaid is Democratic Socialism

      Post Office are Democratic Socialism. (and in the Constitution)

      The US highway system is Democratic Socialism (and in the Constitution)

      our electric grid is Democratic Socialism

      Public Utilities are Democratic Socialism

      YOU need to get better informed and STOP LYING.

    • “We want our true America back”

      You mean barefoot and pregnant women who can’t vote?
      like that?

  12. Excellent analysis. When this process began some 6-8 months ago, I was for Cruz because of his saunch conservative principles. But his constant evangelizing as he pranced around on stage turned me off. He reminded me of the phoney Jimmy Swaggart who disappeared from public view amid scandals some 20 years ago. I’m for Trump now because I believe he’ll blow up the whole political establishment, especially since we gave the GOP the House in 2010 and the Senate in 2014 and both the House Speaker and Senate Majority caved to Obama, in essence giving its middle finger to the GOP electorate as a measure of their thanks. Rubio appears to be on the rise but, as a Florida voter, I haven’t quite forgiven him for his getting in bed with the Dems on comprehensive immigration three years ago. However, he may be our best prospect for delivering the U.S. from the grasp of a Hillary Clinton travesty.

    • “and both the House Speaker and Senate Majority caved to Obama”

      Is that why they try and repeal ACA 60 times?

      cause they are puppets of Obama?

      Is reality hard for you to grasp?
      you should stop listening to right wing HATE media, it has rotted your small mind.

      • Yo, Reality Check, precisely what has the GOP won with an overwhelming number of House members and a 54-member Senate Majority? You’re clueless, and your name is counter-intuitive.They even funded Obozo’s unconstitutional immigration plans for 2016, including his dopey sanctuary cities. Check it out on your ObomaPhone. You’ll find that you even got an increase in your food stamps and housing allowance.

        • their idea of “winning” is not passing anything, silly con.

          “Check it out on your ObomaPhone”

          the Phone program started under REAGAN, fool of the right wing?

          • We had cell phones during Reagan times? I don’t think so. Beepers yes but not cell phones.

          • Let me repeat myself…..
            Since 1985, the Lifeline program has provided a discount on phone service for qualifying low-income consumers to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings, including being able to connect to jobs, family and emergency services. In 2005, Lifeline discounts were made available to qualifying low-income consumers on pre-paid wireless service plans in addition to traditional landline service. Lifeline is part of the Universal Service Fund…..(2005 means it was BUSH who added cellphones…duh)
            https://www.fcc.gov/general/lifeline-program-low-income-consumers

          • Once again, Reality Check, you seem to be out of touch with reality. ObamaPhones are smartphones which are high I.Q cell phones. And during the Reagan period when he had two landslide wins, cell phones were barely on the drawing board let alone being available to the general public. I dunno, maybe you had access to them in public housing but those of us in the real world did not I suggest you use your EBT card to upgrade your 2008 issue ObamaPhone. You still get the taxpayers to cover the cost, but I understand these phones only work in the blue states. Why not use your own money and get an iPhone? You know, like a real citizen that carries his own weight, rather than begging for somebody to take care of you. That would be a true reality check!

          • You are just so silly! I’ve checked my neighbor’s free government phone and it makes and takes calls, nationally, nothing more, nothing less… not even a camera to take pictures of the lazy right zingers!

          • There has been a REDUCTION in food stamp allotment and Housing voucher allowances since 2009 thanks to Repiglicans. I know because I’m a disabled divorced mom and was affected by both. I’m on SSD thanks to a drunk driver. I’m college-educated, a veteran, and worked to support my family but still qualified for help.
            The phones given for “free” are NOT SMARTPHONES. My retired mom just got one two years ago and its about 20 years old….nonflip phone with a 2″screen and phone only keyboard!
            Bush, in 2005, added cellphones to the program.

          • “Repiglicans.” Really, Sherri G? I was ready to give your comments some consideration until you outed yourself as a far left loon, which seriously complicates the likelihood that you’ll be taken seriously. First, I challenge your assertion about food stamps. The sheer number of people drawing food stamps has increased by 50 percent under the Obama regime. Period. That’s a fact. Now, you say there’s “been a REDUCTION in food stamp allotment” and that’s a horse of a different color. That, I would think, refers to the amount in dollars that certain groups receive and NOT in the total outlay of dollars since the coronation of Obama in 2009 or the rapid increase in the total number of people on food stamps today as compared to 2009.

          • There has not been a 50% increase in people getting food stamps since 2009 when President Obama became president. Have you forgotten that the market crashed, there was a recession, and tons of companies shut down and took their jobs overseas to avoid paying taxes and living wages? That does tend to cause an increase in the number of people seeking social service help. The amount allotted per person was reduced due to the sequester and many many people who are getting 20 30 40 $50 in food stamps now get nothing. These are the working poor, the disabled, the elderly, and military families. As a family of 3 on SSD and SSI for my daughter, we qualified for $46 until the sequester happen and then we qualified for 12. Considering that Walmart and other places that pay bare minimum wage and low benefits are sucking millions of dollars in food stamps and welfare and wet and free lunch money because they won’t pay decent wages maybe you should be looking at the corporations not at the people just struggling to survive.

        • You make that sound like a bad thing, McKey??!! LOLOL.

  13. “Can he set this country on a path better than the one we’re on?”

    well lets review what the LAST GOP President DID.

    the last GOP president caused a 700,000 JOB LOOS PER MONTH

    the last GOP president caused the GDP to be NEGATIVE for over a YEAR and a half.

    the last GOP president caused caused the stock market to IMPLODE along with the global economy sending the DOW to 6500.

    the last GOP president stood by while 60,000 factories LEFT the COUNTRY.

  14. “The divide between what is written in the Constitution and what is seen in modern America . . . ” has already grown not just perilously wide but tyrannical. It began in earnest in 1860 and has grown worse with each passing year. A Democrat victory by Clinton, Sanders, or Biden (who may well be drafted) will establish tyranny in stone. Only secession of more than half of the states could correct it. Cruz, Carson, or Trump as President might stop the march of tyranny, at least temporarily.

    • “will establish tyranny in stone”

      where is my Violin???
      ( and the straight jacket)

      so I assume the fool of the right thinks tyranny is already here and just need solidifying?

      LOVE to hear some examples from the low info old fart.

  15. Two trolls on one site is just too much

  16. The biggest hope should be that the RINO leadership of the GOP does NOT sabotage his campaign like they did John McCain’s. That the advantage Trump has in the general election, he comes to the game with his own plentiful money.

    • ya but he has made half the country hate him, so….

      • Over half the country changes its mind every couple of weeks and its a long time till August and November. They were in love with Hellery until she scandalized herself all over again and that brought back all her other scandals. She makes Snowden look like a patriot, Snowden told the whole world some of our secrets, Hellery told more and more sensitive unidentified secrets to some or all of our allies and our enemies.

        The GOP RINO leadership will back Cruz to the hilt until he beats Trump in August and then sabotage his campaign during September and October so we’ll elect the Wicked Witch of the East, Hellery Rodman Clanton.

        • so the GOP are going to help Hillary win?

          you are one twisted human.
          so you can’t win, why bother voting?

          • Do you remember any occasion when this GOP congress has stood their ground and not caved. The first thing our brand new conservative Speaker did was cave and fund everything Obozo wanted.

          • gosh, you have a real bad con memory.
            let start off with ACA
            not ONE GOP voted for it.

            how about the JOBS BILLS that Obama wanted.
            DID not happen.

            infrastructure repair?

            did not get it.

          • Not one GOP vote was needed to pass ObozoCare.

            If the demoncrats had really wanted the Jobs Bill It would have passed.

          • “If the demoncrats had really wanted the Jobs Bill It would have passed.”

            in a GOP controlled House.
            more proof you are not too bright.

          • “Not one GOP vote was needed to pass ObozoCare”

            BUT Toni the Dim, you SAID they were Obama puppets?

            why would they NOT vote for it?

          • No RINO votes weren’t needed to pass it so they were allowed to vote against it. Treachery is the lifeblood of politicians.

          • and making up SHIT is the lifeblood of you cons.

          • Such as?

          • “No RINO votes weren’t needed to pass it so they were allowed to vote against it.”
            for example

          • “The GOP RINO leadership will back Cruz to the hilt until he beats Trump in August and then sabotage his campaign during September and October so we’ll elect the Wicked Witch of the East”

            for example

          • “Speaker did was cave and fund everything Obozo wanted”

            Gitmo is still open cause the GOP will not fund the closing.

            they try an de-fund the ACA 60 times, a sure sign of them being Obama puppets..

            why so ignorant of facts and reality?
            too much right wing propaganda?

          • GITMO is still open because Obozo and the demoncrats don’t want those musloids in this country for trials or releases.

            Obozo doesn’t want to be but in a position where he has to execute or pardon them.

            The demoncrats don’t want them in this country for Justice Dept. Catch and Release games like other illegal immigrants. Nothings bothers legislators like terrorist attacks, especially in or around their districts.

            Remember: Money is the lifeblood of politics, Treachery is the lifeblood of politicians.

          • Gitmo is still open because the congress you claim is an Obama Puppet still fuck with him.

            “Part of the problem has been congressional obstructionism, but Obama also is to blame. Rather than veto defense authorization bills that limited his ability to transfer inmates, he has signed them, while raising questions about whether they intruded on his constitutional authority. And he hasn’t pressed the Defense Department hard enough to approve the release and resettlement of detainees who aren’t deemed a threat.”

            http://www.latimes.com/opinion/editorials/la-ed-guantanamo-20150724-story.html

            AND you seem to have skipped over the other examples, disingenuous con.

          • Why not, they helped Obozo win by sabotaging McCain’s campaign.

      • just the dumber half like you and your friends.

  17. Rubio is a RINO!
    And a bigger flip flopper than a fish out of water!
    If elected, he would turn hard left, and be pro-amnesty, pleasing the Establishment no end.

    Trump is a egocentric, narcissistic fool, just like Obutthole! Two of a kind, they have to get their way, or will pout and worse about it!

    Trump is also big govt, for renaming ObuttholeCare to Trump care, in favor of bank, autoo makers and wallstreet bailouts, as well as abortion, even partial birth.
    Just a normal progressive democrat, (Communist), as he always has been!

  18. Go the honest one, Ted Cruz!

  19. No, like I said killing babys and beheading women and childre like the dem0-rats let continue is not the America I grewup in but maybe it is yours.

    • Well silly human of the right,
      fetus are not babies.

      does the low info Larry know that you can freeze a fertilized egg (conception)
      and thaw it out months or years later and it will grow normally.

      can you do that with a baby?
      no.
      so then the fetus (fertilized egg) is not a baby is it?

      • wow so you also think you have a medical degree now? why are you wasting your time (literally) on these posts arguing your looney leftist garbage then? just get lost RC

        • knowing that you can freeze a fertilized egg and then thaw it, is common knowledge to most with an IQ over 75.

          so I guess we know who Dim the Deby is

    • as for be-headings, those really don’t happen a lot in America.
      I think the one case is currently on death row, so….
      I think Larry is LYING about that.

  20. The hope provided by the Iowa caucus is that maybe evangelicals will not stay home and not vote in the general election like they did four years ago even if their favorite son does not get the nomination. Maybe they will realize that to stay home and not vote is a vote to continue the Obama legacy of destroying capitalism and religion in favor of a dictatorial totalitarian regime. I sure hope they see the light.

  21. Sure, the Idaho caucuses should encourage conservatives. What it shows is that you have to work harder, understand the state nominating/primary process well and operate within it and maximize your work. Have many volunteers who can meet people face to face, and work your tails off. This upcoming election is so very important, that whoever gets the Republican nominee for president must be prepared through this process to work even harder, have the full support of those who really do not want Obama III.

    Rise up core conservatives and keep up the good work!

    • so what about Obama’s mother?

      now SHE isn’t an American citizen?

      pretty sure you are one of the “Obama is a Muslim” drones I see constantly.

      lets add HYPOCRITE to your long list of character flaws.

  24. I am standing with Trump ..2016

  25. Cruz and Rubio are sleazy political crooks. They have lied out of both sides of their mouths just like the Clintons. Any Conservative who would would them is not for the American people.

  26. To AKLady: I’m so sorry if you thought I was saying I agreed with the title of the article I shared. The article has 5 parts to it, and I quoted from a small portion of it. If you read all the parts you’ll see that Cruz’s dad responded the best he could in the position he was in, and at a time when he didn’t yet have Jesus Christ in his heart. You’ll also see that he got away from Cuba when he realized how things were really headed there.

    The article was giving certain facts and bringing the argument that Ted Cruz is eligible to be president.

    reasonable’

  28. TED CRUZ 2016. Ted is the ONLY TRUE CONSERVATIVE running. He is the REAL DEAL, not a phony “Donny-come-lately” who is only good at insults, whining, and throwing “Trumper Tantrums”.

    • Teds Wife is a Goldman Sacks executive.
      Goldman “loaned” him a few million to run for the Senate.

      THREE guys gave him 35 MILLION.

      ya he is the real “corrupt” deal.

  29. the DC won’t give give Cruz,Trump the time of day. they need Rubio to follow thru with obamas agenda. why do you thing they made Paul Ryan the Speaker. he’s a Trader, he give obama every ting his wants. Ryan and others told Jason Chaffaz to back off and not to continue going after hitlary.
    the Utah Rep. is a good man, working hard for our country and the American people as well as his state. Chaffaz can’t get anything done for his state if he goes against the DC CARTEL.

  30. Want to Support Cruz ECHO his his Phrase, the DC CARTEL. Rubio is a product of the DC CARTEL, Paul Ryan now Speaker is Part of the DC CARTEL he’s now in a very powerful seat, one that can bring about big problems and danger to anyone and also our country, as he has made it a point to let us know just who he is and what he can do. He further opened the door for obama bankrupting and destroy America. as well funding illegals and immigrants. the CARTEL is a deadly force willing to kill anyone and anything that gets in their way. The DC CARTEL is will ing to Kill every JOB in America that is available to American citizens. Rubios greed for power and wealth, controlling prices, manipulating the stock mkt. he’s Love for the Old Soviet Union Style of doing Business will cost us not only jobs but the land, Our farms and Ranches. Rubio is already following in obamas foot steps and also the Castors. foot step. Rubios Well REHEARSED SPEECHES are just that and nothing more. Look at his record and his low life, life style. his greed for wealth and power.
    Why is it the State of Florida will not back Rubio, they know who he is and what he stand for. they’ve had a taste of the corrupt lying,stealing Rubio. they now have to pay to clean of the Enviorment and Everglades because of his Greed, him and the Progressive.

  31. A MUST READ.
    Public Intelligence Blog
    Wayne Madsen: Marco Rubio Gay Homosexual
    Duplicity Update — with Photos
    also Forbes has the story on the Big Sugar Deal.
    it involves Sanders and Rubio, Rubio got paid by the lobbyist for his vote, he showed up for that vote, $$$

    couldn’t show to vote on a bill the would help keep America safe, he couldn’t let down his wealthy donors and illegals so he had to turn his back on America, the people that pay.
    Congress must call for the removal of Rubio and they won’t, But our Constitution requires the to remove the corruption if not than they must resign.
    Nobody calling for the removal of those corrupt politicians and nobody resigning. Why not?

  32. Rubio will change the Constitution to suit him and his illegals. What part of American will he be selling.

  33. jackandjill98983*

    Why does the Iowa election give conservatives hope?….there was wide spread cheating in the caucus precincts…..Cruz is a liar, cheat and ineligible.

  35. Reality Check, for some reason, I can’t find you. The figures now are still high…the is the 2015 count. ) I guess it is too early to report on 2016)
    The Obama administration is spending $16.8 million to provide low-income residents— already getting food stamps from the government—with healthier meals, especially “culturally-appropriate fruits and vegetables.” It’s part of the First Lady’s costly effort to eradicate “food deserts,” area’s with limited access to affordable and nutritious foods.
    —–
    Less than a year after spending tens of millions of dollars to provide the nation’s food-stamp recipients with more fruits and vegetables, the Obama administration is generously throwing in another $31.5 million for the same cause, according to a recent announcement. It’s the last thing Americans need to hear as…
