Ted Cruz

The establishments candidate.

After reading the comments

on this thread, all I can say is it is perfectly clear why people are put off by libertarians. Some of you are the most self-righteous grumps anyone could possibly fathom. Cruz is one of the best Senate candidates any if us are ever going to see in our lifetime, yet some of you purists still din't want to support him. Have fun wasting your political life in the Losertarian Party.

I want to agree with you

I want to agree with you dude. But Texas is full of neo-con toilet drinkers. I'll pass judgement when Cruz casts his first vote in the Senate and not before then. Granted, many Tea Party people in the state are glad that Hutchison is leaving. She was a no-body and a pushover.

aww how cute

the troll has precious little nicknames! Did you get those from the inside pocket of your members only Romney jacket?

Maybe we just don't trust

Maybe we just don't trust someone like Cruz who has definite ties to CFR and Goldman Sachs. I think both of those organizations are enemies of liberty so of course we question why we should support such a candidate.

Well, I agree with you on the CFR and Goldman Sachs, but,

if we're going yo b any kind of political movement in this country, we're going to have to be willing to donate to, campaign for, and vote for candidates who have connections to both. Otherwise, the Ron Paul Revolution will be nothing more than another libertarian fringe. The man on the street isn't going to not vote for a candidate just because that candidate has donors who are CFR or Goldman Sachs.

If you want to look at it that way, Ron Paul had "definite ties" to Stormfront.

No. Ron taking a picture with

No. Ron taking a picture with some stranger from Stormfront that he never knew is different than being married to the Vice President of Goldman Sachs.

We'll just have to watch how Cruz votes. Then we'll know for sure.

Eff em

I am voting for Libertarian John Jay Myers

Eff em? Why?

I mean cussing someone out just because you're voting for someone else doesn't make much sense.

Because neither of them

would stick to the issues and answer directly. None of them suggested drug legalization/decriminalization and the impact it would have on border violence. Also, the candidate I plan on voting for calls "Israel" out on its bullshit. That is more than enough reason to vote for someone considering how much our government is owned by that terrorist apartheid state.

John Jay Myers

picked up my fathers vote after that debate, and my father plans on voting for Romney. Something tells me it will be higher than 1%.

Yeah Cruz is kind of a

Yeah Cruz is kind of a weasel. But that said compared to DREAM act KBH he will be an improvement. Though, the few times he came to east texas he mentioned mises and friedman at small townhall at a bbq joint.

His father was tortured in Cuba and escaped and came here. Cruz would never vote against freedom.
also ted kept the UN out of the Texas death penalty case and if he didnt we would have a new UN texas charter to follow.
the un would be in Texas if nt for the good fight cruz WON!

Cruz is an actual HERO!
He kept the Un out!

Not like neocon McCain who was caught and then sang to the enemy and gave up secrets.

For once America gets a real hero like Ted Cruz not someone who was CAPTURED by the enemy.

WTF is McCain referred to as a war hero anyway?
He was CAUGHT!
and then SANG a love song to the enemy!!!

Only in America would McCain be considered a war hero.

anywhere else he would have been put in jail for narking on his fellow soldiers locations and US war plans.

I gave up on Ted Cruz after

I gave up on Ted Cruz after the speech at the convention. His speech was terrible and sounded like something Mitt would say in a speech.


Hes never held elected office nor had to give a speech to such a large crowd. hes a newbie, just like Rand Paul.

His father was tortured in Cuba and escaped to America.

Isn't Cruz one of the RP endorsements...

that Benton auctioned off to build his mansion???

Ron and Rand BOTH endorsed

Ron and Rand BOTH endorsed Ted Cruz...

What does JB have to do with this.
He was not involved and this was a state race not a fed race and has nothing to do with the RP campaign.

Why do you stir when thers nothing there?

Rand Paul 2016

i wasn't able

to watch the entire 'debate' but what I saw was disturbing, I didn't like either one of them. I find after following Ron Paul for the past five years and witnessing the purity of principle and integrity, seeing these typical sounding politicians is glaringly off-putting, their words appear meaningless.


May I ask what you didnt like about Cruz tonight??
Please be specific.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

He should have answered the questions

out of the box, he appeared to stall and look for a more acceptable version of what he wanted to say. Sadler was completely obnoxious with his bully tactics and calling out Cruz as talking too much when he himself wouldn't shut up and kept interrupting. Whether Cruz is a decent guy or not, he appeared weak. I don't know much about either one of them all I know is what I saw from both of them didn't make me want to vote for them. I don't live in the state but was watching as a casual observer.


But his message is sound right??
Hes a junior and has never held elected ffice.
Hes a newbie and knew he had to watch what he said thats why he stalled.
But even if he gave the wrong answer, he would still be elected here thers no question.
thanks for being honest!

CRUZ slammed Sadler!

and it wasnt pretty!

Rand Paul 2016

Sadler called Cruz a liar and a troll

Remember at the Republic of Texas Rally when Ron Paul endorsed Ted Cruz and Cruz was confronted and asked if he would endorse Ron Paul? And Cruz wouldn't and ran away from the camera. The day after he won the Texas Senate run-off he thanked everyone on his twitter page except for Ron and Rand Paul. They are the ones that got the votes for him.
Tonight Sadler brought up something similar. Sen John Cornyn of Texas is stumping for Cruz and trying to get him elected. Cruz is getting all his money from Jim Demint and the teaparty. Cruz said once he would not vote for Cornyn if he came up for majority whip. Sadler confronted him on this and he would not answer the question. He squirmed and would have walked off if he weren't on TV.



Ted Cruz NEVER said he would not vote for Cornyn.
He wouldnt answer. Thats NOT saying "NO"!
Why do you LIE? The whole time the libtard was trying to make cruz answer beut he wouldnt. It frustrated the libtard. Why do you have to put out such a falsehood?
also in another thread you said the dem made Cruz look like a jerk!!!lol
Sadler attacked Cruzs' wife just like they did to Rand when he ran for senate.
Why do you hate the small gvt liberty candidate??

I will have the link up soon to out your lies libtard.
He NEVER answered it, but the TRUTH is he wouldnt vote for Cornyn, he would vote for Demint which is a BAD thing, only if youre a BIG GVT liberal.
are you a big gvt lib, ralph?

Rand Paul 2016

Cruz is a jerk-He's already displayed that on several occasions

I'm not a liberal. I voted for Cruz in the run-off. I don't care much for Sadler either. Cruz is from Canada and does not really know our state or the people. He's better than Dewhurst would have been, but our Texas senate race is just like the national race--lousy choices on both sides. He's a fake. He's in the little club--Jim Demint, Mitch McConnell, Rand Paul and Jesse Benton. I think they are all bad news.


You did not name one thing Cruz is FOR and youre against.
You cant can you?
You simply say hes candian?
His father was tortured in comunist CUBA and escaped... You think Cruz will ever forget what the Cuban gvt did to his father?? They escaped to FREEDOM, Cruz will NEVER vote against freedom. His father had NONE! Cruz is Pro Constitution and knows it well.
He won the Texas case the UN wanted to control Texas death penalty and take over telling Texas what we should do, and CRUZ WON THAT CASE.
The UN almost got into Texas and Cruz stopped them!
He is more liberty then all the libtards like you combined and stop distroting and running falsehoods every where.
You dont know what youre talking about so HUSH!
You never voted for him and anyway, I wouldnt believe you if your tongue were stamped and notorized and right hand on the bible

also why dont you address you LIE in the first post you wrote about him saying he wouldnt vote for Cornyn when he never said that.
No one should believe a word you or LL say.
Youre both LIARS and SPINNERS!

Rand Paul 2016


Ted Cruz just agreed with Rand Paul that we should withhold all aid to Lybia, Eygpt and Pakistan.
That is a clear opposite position then what the neocons like McCain/Graham take.

Ive only watched 5 mins and this is a feisty, saucy debate.
30 mins to go.
hope if youre in Texas you vote, volunteer and donate to Ted Cruz.

Cruz said he wants to repeal obamacare in its entirety.
healthcare should empower patients and doctors.
purchase across state lines.

Cruz just said that the very first vote he would amke WOULD NOT be for Harry Reid, like his opponent!lol

Ted Cruz would not commit to supporting R John Cornyn for Texas Leader. He will support Jim Demint

debate ended, my feeling T Cruz slammed the lib.

Ted was steady and smooth and well thought out.
I will post the video once its released. Probably on Weds morning.

Rand Paul 2016

Didn't get to see much of it

Didn't get to see much of it but Sadler (sp?) sure didn't impress me. I remember quite abit of debate here on the DP over Cruz and another Liberty candidate. I even had some Texas GOP person tell me to fall in line and support Cruz. Didn't like that, but I'm in Missouri so it doesn't really matter other than now that Cruz makes it to the Senate.


I know I I didnt get to watch the full debate either.
atleast it was up for appx 45 mins or so.

Saddler(sp) attacked Cruzs' wife.
Texans dont like that.

Cruz is as close to RP positions as anyone... Rand of course is closer to Rons positions, but like Mike LeeR-UT and Jim demint- they all agree on most everything..
Patriot Act, all spending.
reducing miltarism, etc etc

gotta run now, good to see ya bear!

I would have asked him if he will follow the Constitution. but thats me.
I would want a pledge.
Cant simply follow it when its convenient, like GJ would!!
