For those speaking against Ted Cruz todaySubmitted by Anthony in AR on Tue, 09/24/2013 - 20:04
I fully understand what everyone is saying, he doesn't have a record yet to justify trust.
We know his ties, and power grabs are a possibility, but right now we need allies where we can take them. Stop condemning those who are helping us. If and when the time comes to oppose former allies, we will do so. You know what, if wacko bird McCain decides to help us defund Obamacare tomorrow, we shouldn't be making fun of him either, not for doing the RIGHT thing. We can go back to making fun of him as soon as the next bill comes up, as he's sure to go back to trying to screw us all over.
I don't trust Palin either, but we need her, we need the co-opted tea party and their conservative allies. I honestly think with the liberty movement, the tea party, and the conservatives, we have a real chance to win some elections in 2014 and 2016, including president if we play our cards right.
Rand has been out recruiting the "minority groups" for the Republican Party recently, and I personally think his bid for president will be based on whether or not he thinks he has the votes to pull it off, FROM these minority conversions.
While I would love a better option, we should keep in mind, a Rand/Palin ticket would bring in a HUGE majority of conservative voters, and we may want to keep it an option.
Let's keep our head in the game, while we can't trust everyone, we need allies right now, lets only bash them when they work against us please.
