The Cruz Threat (and do not discount Santorum)

"“There’s no question he’s setting the pace right now,” Laudner says. “He’s the hard act to follow. He’s speaking the language that the base uses when they’re chatting with each other.....

If Cruz continues his frenetic rise through the conservative ranks, he may be the biggest threat yet to the presidential hopes of Santorum, Governor Rick Perry of Texas, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, Kentucky’s Paul, and Wisconsin’s Walker and Ryan — all of whom at one time or another have been conservative stars....."

Keep your eye on the ball, folks. It is local/state that MUST be priority.

It is tptb who have the coffer, and more than likely the final say. The forum where I found this article, posters there are still 'ultra-conservative' santorum supporters.

We have a tremendous amount of work to do.

I have not seen

much out of Cruz so far that makes him an establishment plant. He is under the allure of the pro-Israel front, but it also appears Rand is trending towards it too. Cruz, has been much better on the illegal immigration front, than Rand, knowing from Texas how they will not assymilate, and will always have their allegence to Mexico. This will be a major thorn with the GOP base for Rand. I still hope there is another candidate who is willing to stand against the Zionsit cause, but at this point Cruz is ahead of Rand, mainly because Rand wants to give illegals amnesty, which would only destroy more American jobs and massively increase the debt from their welfare enticements. Plus, if Hillary gets the nomination, Cruz has a better speaking approach, that could dominate Hillary's method of promoting the GOP as the party against the average American. I think Cruz is quich enough to flip her hate back at her.

I'll vote for Hillary over Cruz for one simple reason

Hillary was born in America. Cruz was born in Canada. I'll side with the Constitution and vote for the American any day of the week.

Canadian Cruz

Cruz is Canadian. He can't be President. Except of the North American Union.

I hope Rand runs for Pres instead of Senate.

According to Kentucky law, Rand can't run for both the Senate and the GOP nomination at the same time. Ted Cruz is not eligible. We better figure something out soon. I hope Rand runs for Pres instead of Senate.

Rand

Rand is doing great watch his voting record not his words, if you want to win the republican primary you have to watch how you say things.

I hope Rand

wins the nomination but if he doesn't Cruz would be a major improvement over what we have had...in many many years.

I just do not think that Sanitorium is much of a threat.

Neo-Conservatism has been rejected and Sanitorium doesn't pass the sniff test with libertarians or T Party types.

I don't worry about Sanitorium or Christie...they are the past.

Cruz rocks

.

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.

Cruz is not a "threat"

he's an ally that is solid on most issues. He has a 90% from the JBS Freedom Index, only Rand Paul has a higher score. Mike Lee, Thomas Massie and Amash also have great scores http://www.thenewamerican.com/freedomindex/

If winning the presidency is the only goal, then idk what to tell you. Cruz has taken on the establishment and transformed it outright. His win was monumental. He's shifting the argument just as much as Rand has. The only problem is he's more of an evangelical and on the Levin/Hannity side. As far as Liberty/Constitutional Conservatism he isn't far enough. But it's way better than going to Santorum or Hillary.

3 have higher, at least

I count 3 people who scored a 100% rating.

Thanks for the reminder that the

new index was out. It is a good source. I just printed a copy.

after hearing rand paul

after hearing rand paul pandering to the right winger drug war nuts and supporting the failed drug war, http://www.drugwar101.com/blog/archives/7661

the gop,rand,frothy and the rest of these corrupt bastards can go jump off a cliff.

Ron Paul 2016

The progressive agenda

took many years to implement. Reversing that will take time. The corrupt bastards are not going to go jump off a cliff anytime soon. While they don't out number us, they do out money us. Until we have enough public support, we have to take what may seen to some as baby steps. I believe Rand is trying to help his state as a senator and help the country as a voice for a constitutional republic.

then you are more then

then you are more then welcome to be a delegate for him in my county. I am not wasting my time with his ass anymore. I can no longer trust the drug war fence sitter.

Ron Paul 2016

Here is santorum:

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Ultra-conservative' santorum supporters???

I thought Santorum Supporters were a bunch of war mongering neo-con progressives. No where near being conservative.

And why is Cruz a problem? I thought he is on our side?

they are on par with rand on

they are on par with rand on the drug war, http://www.drugwar101.com/blog/archives/7661

Ron Paul 2016

Just Stand With Rand

If Cruz is the real deal, he'll have his chance.

if you love a faileddrug war

if you love a faileddrug war ,stand with rand, pandering bs artist, http://www.drugwar101.com/blog/archives/7661

Ron Paul 2016

You don't

have to tell me twice. lol

I'll stick with the Paul family to the very end.

Agreed

Though Santorum owns his true inner authoritarian much more so than your run of mill neocon. If you ever ever needed evidence of uninformed voters....
