Comment: Some choices

(See in situ)

Some choices

are easy. Who was Cruz running against? I would rather have a candidate closer to McCain win than someone closer to Obama (barely), and we all know how horrible McCain is on libertarian viewpoints. Cruz is obviously quite constitutionally conservative in many ways, although probably not enough ways when it comes to religious views. Still Cruz would be better than a LOT of other candidates. He is one of the best we have in congress right now. That doesn't mean I think he should be president though.

Also, politicians sometimes change views. Rand Paul always talks about how Senator Obama was more a constitutional champion than President Obama. You can endorse who you think will be a better fit, but it doesn't mean you really know.
