Oh for .......sake! How can you not see through this?

First of all, the Tea Party doesn't exist - it is a Neocon astroturf propaganda program. If Ted Cruz is involved, you should know it is a farce.

But...for all those morons who still think this is a good thing. Look into this guy. He was a CIA/DHS spook. He is the ultimate insider. He was also a peddler of child abuse:

"However, it is Sasse's job as one of four proctors and a tutor for the U.S. House of Representative Page Program from 1996 to 1998 that has raised eyebrows in both Nebraska and Washington, DC. The House Page program, at the time of Sasse's employment, was experiencing one of its many scandals, in which members of Congress were accused of pressuring underage male House pages for sex. Sasse's time as a page proctor includes the time frame when Representative Mark Foley (R-FL) and Representative Jim Kolbe (R-AZ) were accused of molesting underage male House pages. Foley resigned his House seat in 2006 after sexually explicit instant messages he sent to current and former House pages were revealed to the media. Sasse's principal responsibility as proctor and tutor was the welfare of the pages, a job for which he failed miserably as seen by the number of pages who came forward with stories of molestation and sexual harassment from Foley and Kolbe." (rense.com) --- Remember this thing?

This guy has Manchurian Candidate written all over him. A Neocon piece of crap. Why Rand would even consider this fascist is beyond me.

Bump!

Thanks joeinmo!

Thanks for posting Joe! I

Thanks for posting Joe! I have heard mixed things about Sasse, so I won't get my hopes up. But he is someone to watch, the candidate the Neocons prefer lost. So that's always good.

Beware the cult of "government"...

NOPE

"Dictatorships like China and North Korea have become emboldened by Obama's lead-from-behind weakness. His passivity on Syria has led to a dramatic increase in the number of jihadist terrorists, and on his watch Iran is closer to a nuclear weapon than ever before."

Tea-o-Con.

Just like when Ted Cruz first

Just like when Ted Cruz first got in; the Pauls will be able to enlighten him toward liberty. No matter how crappy the candidate, a fresh new candidate in office is pliable. Hopefully we'll bend him toward our direction. Though foreign policy is the most challenging area in the liberty platform.

Where have you been?

Ted Cruz has been revealed to be a bankster whore, an Israel-firster, and a lousy two-bit Tea Party candidate. He has some people fooled at first.

Freedom Index is only a reference and NOT the entire picture.

Perhaps you do not recall how Bush W sounded exactly like Ron Paul prior to taking office. Not only do the votes matter, so do lifetime associations.

- Ted Cruz, member of The Senate Armed Services Committee, voted YES on the markup of the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which included a provision that would authorize the Department of Defense to train and equip Syrian forces.

- Ted Cruz is co-sponsor of S. 1881 (Bob Menendez, D-NJ) To expand sanctions imposed with respect to Iran and to impose additional sanctions with respect to Iran, and for other purposes. (Dec 2013)

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

Voting record is key

I know about his wife but show me a voting record concerning his alliance with banksters. And I know foreign policy has its challenges in bringing people to our side. But Ted Cruz is rock solid on domestic issues. I would gladly trade any neocon for a Ted Cruz if I couldn't get a Rand Paul-like senator.

Also I found it striking that even purist hard-core, anti-globalist Alex Jones is strongly supportive of Ted Cruz.

Easy enough.

See my above post.

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

I know his foreign policy

I know his foreign policy isn't good. But he's better than most domestically.

Foreign policy is one of the most important issues

and must be known. It is key to the MIC, central banking, our sovereignty, how we treat the world and how the world views us.

Lessers of evil is evil. To make excuses is to propagate the problem.

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

I agree. My whole take is

I agree.

My whole take is incrementalism. I'm happy to take a Ted Cruz over Lindsey Graham, McCain and other NeoCons. And once we can get rid of the hard core Neo-Cons then I can think about replacing Ted Cruz with a Rand Paul-type.

Right now, realistically, I just think it's wasted energy to go after Cruz. As another poster mentioned on this thread--we have to stay vigilant and watch Cruz's votes.

He's screwing us in foreign policy and if he screws us domestically then he's definitely gotta go. For now, I think we should be constantly highlighting all the egregious votes committed by Lindsey Graham and plastering them all over websites outside of the DP.

Beautiful

The takeover is in effect.
