Thomas Sowell on Why We Must Rally Behind Ted Cruz to Avoid a Train Wreck

Scalia’s untimely death underscores why it is essential for everyone who wants to arrest America’s slide into ruin to consolidate behind Ted Cruz before it is too late. Take it from the voice of reason, Thomas Sowell:

Given the advanced ages of other justices, the next president is likely to have enough vacancies to fill to be able to shape the future of the court that helps shape the future of America.

Already many people are complaining that the America they grew up in, and loved, is being changed into something they can barely recognize.

There are looming threats from without as well as within:

Meanwhile, people with high level experience in the military and in the intelligence services are warning us against extreme dangers in a world where our adversaries’ military power and aggressiveness are increasing, while our military forces are being cut back.

Not all Republican candidates would reverse that trend.

Against this background, the frivolous rhetoric and childish antics in the televised political “debates” are painful to watch. If ever there was a time to choose a president with depth, rather than glitter or glibness, this is it.

Whatever the achievements of anyone in some other field, we cannot afford a novice in the complex world of politics and government at a time of grave dangers at home and internationally.

That rules out Trump, not that he would stand a chance in the general election anyway.

Some seem to think that Donald Trump’s lead in the polls and in the New Hampshire primary make him the most electable candidate, even if he often acts like an overgrown spoiled brat.

But the fact that Trump leads in the polls does not mean that he is electable in the general election this fall. He is ahead only because the majority vote among Republicans has been split among so many other candidates.

Although Hillary Clinton is said to have been beaten badly in the Democrat’s primary vote in New Hampshire, she still had a higher percentage of the Democrats’ vote than Trump had of the Republicans’ votes.

Unfortunately, the way the Republican primaries are set up, Trump can win all the delegates from some states without having to get a majority of the votes in any state.

A candidate who can’t even get a majority of the Republican vote, who many conservatives would not vote for under any circumstances whatsoever, and who has an overwhelming unfavorable rate among Democrats and independents would lose in a blowout. Give the country another 9 months to have his obnoxious behavior rubbed in everyone’s face, and Trump would be lucky to win even a single state.

Even if some total meltdown by the Dems put Trump into power, his ideological incoherence and seriously flawed character make it unlikely that he would be any better than Shrillary or Bernie Sanders.

If the Republicans are to avoid having Donald Trump lead them — and the country — to disaster, they are going to have to have the majority of non-Trump supporters get behind some given candidate. …

Senator Cruz is the one who comes to mind when depth and steadfastness come to mind.

As someone who once clerked for a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, he will know how important choosing Justice Scalia’s replacement will be. And he has the intellect to understand much more.

The question is whether Republican voters have the intellect not to step off the edge of a cliff in an insane self-defeating gesture.

Only Cruz can stop the impending train wreck.

    What I find interesting in what Sowell said towards the end of your article is that Republicans need to (paraphrasing here) unite around one candidate to win.

    That’s EXACTLY what Trevor Loudon said in all his speeches he was giving around the country over the last 2-3 years or so!

    Except, something happened:
    REPUBLICANS CHOSE TO UNITE AROUND DONALD TRUMP.

    So…what’s to be done?
    IGNORE THAT AND SABOTAGE THE LEADER AND CLEAR UNITER!

    That’s how little sense Sowell’s and your point makes to me.

    Americans are faced with a clear choice.

    We have had the pleasure of watching Trump rub the gopE’s faces in the dirt, and that was a very real pleasure for me, as for many other conservatives. I was grinning from ear to ear for several weeks straight.

    But now the holiday is over and it’s time to choose the candidate who has the best chance of saving America. We’re riding on the ragged edge of a maelstrom of economic and social meltdown, bloody chaos inside and outside our borders. This is no time to elect “The Joker”. We need a steady hand at the controls.

    We need a president whose first priority is and has always been the safety and freedom and prosperity of America. IMO, the only candidate who fits that description is Senator Ted Cruz.

  • lawngren

    Republicans have not chosen to unite around trump. Sowell put that myth to rest in this article:

    Although Hillary Clinton is said to have been beaten badly in the
    Democrat’s primary vote in New Hampshire, she still had a higher
    percentage of the Democrats’ vote than Trump had of the Republicans’
    votes
    .”

    The myth of Trump being the leader is what Trump supporters and democrats want us to believe.

  • whotothewhat

    If and WHEN Cruz is the last man standing he will have my support.

    If Trump is last man standing I will support Trump.
    If Trump runs 3rd party against Cruz I will support Cruz.
    If Cruz would run 3rd party against Trump I will support Trump.
    If Trump would run 3rd party against Rubio I would support Trump.
    If neither Trump or Cruz are standing and Rubio or Bush is I will not vote.

    Eight years or so ago I had the distinct honor of exchanging a good number of emails with Trevor Loudon and Thomas Lifson, two men I admire as much as Thomas Sowell. Mr. Lifson is the editor of American Thinker – here is what he wrote two days ago when blogging on AT:

    Why would such a respected scholar like endorse a known cheater and liar? This kinda reminds me of when Colin Powell endorsed Obama.

  • curley727

    In Iowa alone, sending out deceitful mailers and tweets before the primary vote, was political behavior at it’s worst.
    But I’m sure it must have been the Christian thing to do. I would like to hear Mr. Sowell or Mr. Lifson answer to this.

  • Kevin R.

    Who are you for mister troll, Hillary or Bernie?

  • Kevin R.

    So how long have you been working for the DNC, troll?

  • sunshine

    So, you’re going to call someone a troll instead of refuting what they’re saying? How DO you explain Cruz and his dirty tricks? You want a man married to a CFR member as President? A man that went to hand out toys and balls to “unaccompanied minors” with Glenn Beck? You think the American people want that??

    Your callous and hateful dismissal of the actual Republicans WILL cost you this election if you get your way and get Ted “Zzzz” Cruz. I have voted Republican my entire life except 2012 when I vowed I would never again reward a party that spat in my face and insulted me by nominating someone as vile as Romney, and the dirty tricks they pulled on Ron Paul. You can call names, scream, stomp your feet, have a tantrum….NONE OF IT WILL CHANGE ANYTHING. We are off the reservation now, we won’t go back and we d**n sure won’t vote for people that hold us in contempt and treat us like we’re trash. Good luck attracting diversities to your side though, since you don’t need or want regular working and middle class white people!

  • sunshine

    Speak for yourself.

  • sunshine

    Hahaha why? Cruz and Rubio can’t WAIT to flood this country with more of their co-racialists! Marco “Gang of Eight” Rubio and Ted “I delivered toys to unaccompanied minors with Glenn Beck” Cruz won’t stop the infestation of this once great nation with human cucarachas and if you think otherwise, you need to put the crack pipe down.

  • sunshine

    How can you ever tell the difference? The establishment on both sides seem to have nothing but contempt for the American people and want to flood this nation with Turd World trash and do their elite master’s bidding. No thanks. If it’s not Trump, I’ll vote third party like I did last time.

  • sunshine

    Hahahaha!!! Cruz is so concerned with America that he went with Glenn Beck to deliver toys to the “unaccompanied minors”. He’s a real American champion. I doubt he’ll deny his fellow Hispanics a “chance at the American Dream”. Because you know, all populations are interchangeable and a nation of Hispanics won’t be anything like Latin America, it’ll be different HERE, because of magic dirt or something. Just like our black areas are thriving and safe, nothing at all like Africa. Magic dirt!

  • sunshine

    I don’t know any Republicans that are for anyone BUT Trump. I have yet to see ONE sign for Cruz and I’ve only seen ONE bumper sticker for Cruz and a few for Carson. Nothing else, nobody else. I have seen at least 30 Trump stickers, seen numerous signs, the rally in Pensacola was jam packed, everyone I talk to supports Trump! And it’s not just here, it’s in other places as well, even in liberal areas I am shocked to meet Trump supporters there.

    You can say “B-but DEMOCRATS!” like that means anything any more, but it doesn’t. People are over the tired old rhetoric and tired of voting for the same person (essentially) and getting nothing out of it. The scare mongering “If the DEMOCRATSSSSS get it, blah blah blah” is finished as an effective weapon to keep the traditional Republican voters in line, because there is basically no difference in establishment Repubs or Dems. They are the same exact thing! What insane person will keep voting for the exact same thing over and over? The American people are wise to this game and won’t play it any more. In fact, we are downright INSULTED to be presented with a sleazy establishment turd like Cruz and have him held up as some bastion of conservatism. YEAH RIGHT.

  • Kevin R.

    How long have you been working for the DNC, Sunshine?

    EXACTLY! AND American Thinker is such a GREAT site!

  • sunshine

    So, more name calling and a flat out refusal to address the points I’ve made. Yet you can’t understand why Republicans such as myself will not ever vote for your candidate. Good luck with that approach, people LOOOVE to vote for people that dismiss their concerns, ignore their points, and call names. Yes indeed, a winning strategy!

  • Kevin R.

    You still haven’t answered my question, troll: How long have you been working for the DNC?

  • sunshine

    So what? Why shouldn’t people pay more money in taxes if they have more money?? I prefer a flat tax but frankly, I can’t always get what I want. And yes, AMERICANS should be able to afford their own health care. I don’t think Obamacare is the answer, but I certainly don’t think foreigners should be getting care Americans can’t get, paid for by us, while Americans die in the streets and can’t get care.

  • sunshine

    Herp derp…I DON’T WORK FOR THE DNC. It was such an asinine and flat out retarded troll question that I don’t think it deserved an answer, but there you go. So, now it’s your turn…how can you explain away Cruz’s love for illegals and desire to hand out free stuff to them? How about his CFR wife?

    Lol not that you’ll answer any of these questions, you’ll just bleat “DNC TROLL” over and over again and be left with your thumb up your ass on Election Day when Cruz gets steamrolled by whatever Democrap turd they run. Because I’m telling you, Republicans are DONE with being crapped on by their own party and millions of us WILL NOT VOTE for Cruz or Rubio or any other foreign POS they try and shove down our throats. It’s Trump or nobody. DEAL WITH IT.

  • lawngren

    Cruz has been in the fight to stop obama’s disastrous policies from the very first. Your reply indicates an extreme level of ignorance of Senator Cruz’s activites, or else an extreme unwillingness to allow truth to be told. But with the aid of the internet, truth can easily be discovered by anyone willing to make a slight effort.

    Those who research just a little, instead of just passing out democrat or Trump or Rubio talking points, if they are willing, can know the truth behind your comment. I did a little research for you. This was the first hit when I googled the topic:

    Cruz, who told Breitbart News that the event is a statement against President Barack Obama’s non-enforcement of immigration laws, said he will be doling out medical supplies.

    A Cruz spokesperson announced to The Blaze Thursday that Cruz would be “glad to join Glenn Beck” in McAllen, Texas to ‘provide some relief from the suffering this administration is causing.’

    Cruz’s spokesperson, Catherine Frazier, reiterated to Breitbart News that ‘from day one, Sen. Cruz has been leading the charge to stop President Obama’s lawlessness, which is the direct cause of this humanitarian crisis.’ She said Cruz argues that, at the same time, ‘these young children are very real victims of the President’s promise of amnesty–because of it, they have been subjected to horrific physical and sexual abuse from international drug cartels smuggling them into the country.’ ”

  • sunshine

    Oh boo hoo. He can parade around and help foreigners instead of shoving them immediately back on the bus and sending them back to where they’re from….but where is he in the US? I’ve never seen him in Appalachia helping those poor Americans! Never seen him show an ounce of concern or compassion for any needy American, his feelings seem to be reserved for his co-ethnics only. How convenient.

    Look, if you want to vote for a sleazy scumbag that will do exactly what he’s told by his establishment masters, knock yourself out. But he is unelectable and can never ever win. Millions of Republicans like me will not hold our noses and vote for him, not this time and never again.

  • Torcer

  • lawngren

    Your presence here is merely to discourage conservatives. The obviously untrue content of your replies is a good indicator of how desperate you are.

    You meet Trump supporters in liberal areas – hank you! That’s because Trump is a liberal.

    It’s truly a desperate tactic for you to project onto conservatives the gopE’s tactic of inciting fear of a democrat win. Conservatives, of which Ted Cruz is one, are the ones who are no longer buying that.

    You’re commenting here for the sole purpose of attempting to scare conservatives away from the only genuine conservative in the race – Senator Ted Cruz. You are forced to resort to the most pathetic, absurd rants and lies because Cruz’s record is substantial and consistent. Unfortunately for you and your kind, the internet knows all, and as I said elsewhere, with only a little effort, anyone with an internet connection can easily discover the truth.

  • Kevin R.

    If Trump is the republican candidate he will lose. Millions of people will not go out to vote if it is Trump. That’s why people like you are working so hard to make sure he is the candidate.

    How long have you been working for the DNC?

  • sunshine

    That’s an awful lot of speculation on your part, simply because I don’t back the same candidate you do. You can think what you want, and you can vote for whomever you please. I am just telling you that there are many people out there that will not continue to vote for the establishment candidate that the Repubs keep running. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. In case you haven’t noticed, this country is circling the drain and Cruz will not save it. He is a nothingburger, a grinning empty suit that will do as his elite handlers order.

    But, you refuse to see this. Just don’t be surprised when Cruz loses to the Democrat because all of the conservatives stay home like we did in 2012 because we weren’t going to vote for Romney. Not that it matters, like I’ve said, any of the establishment politicians on either “side” (never mind the fact that they’re opposite sides of the same coin) will do what their masters tell them to do. They are bought and wholly owned by the ones that control their purse strings. Nothing you say will change that.

    Oh and I said that I meet Trump supporters all over the place, EVEN in liberal areas. I have never seen such enthusiastic support for any candidate….the closest I’ve seen is Ron Paul supporters, but they were never as big of a force as Trump supporters. The people in this country are angry and are unwilling to keep being served the same shit stew on a gilded platter.

  • sunshine

    Yes I am. But I am not a monolith and I don’t think that every thing they say is perfect and I don’t agree with every single thing they say. I consider myself a nationalist more than anything else, which is inherently conservative but I don’t care about “economics” or what is held up as “the conservative position” on economics which appears to mean “flood the nation with every Turd Worlder so the rich can get richer, and screw you, white America!” I am EXTREMELY pro-2nd Amendment, pro Constitution, pro freedom (to an extent, like I don’t think porn, drugs, gambling, other socially ruinous things should be legal), but I am also pro-union (or what unions SHOULD be, what they were intended to be) anti- ANY immigration. However you want to classify me based on this, well that’s up to you.

  • Torcer

    sunshine

    So what? Why shouldn’t people pay more money in taxes if they have more money??

    That isn’t a Conservative viewpoint.

  • sunshine

    Well I am in favor of the flat tax, but I am not too heartbroken to hear that rich should pay more money because they make more money. I just got flat out screwed by the IRS again this year because we made more money than usual so now we owe them money. We have no money. But honestly, I am not against taxation if it is used for the right things. I do not like my tax dollars being spent on stupid stuff like gender studies, foreign aid (unless it’s sterilization then I don’t want to fund it), or feeding and breeding ghetto or barrio trash…but if it was spent on helping wounded veterans, our infrastructure, deporting foreign scum, and things that would benefit Americans, then I wouldn’t have a problem with it. You see what I mean? Not necessarily “conservative” before it’s explained further….but it’s not “not conservative” either, I don’t think.

  • sunshine

    Cruz will lose. I simply can’t believe that a man that fills stadiums will lose, or that people will be fired up to vote for Cruz when the man couldn’t fill a high school auditorium. If you want to do the same thing over again as 2012, then don’t be surprised when it turns out like 2012. We all know many people simply stayed home rather than vote for Romney, and that will happen again if it’s Cruz. You can shriek “DNC shill” til you’re blue in the face but the fact remains. People are not going to keep “voting against” someone else, that strategy has been played out and it’s foolish to do it again when it failed so spectacularly in 2012.

    Are you a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic or something? I know this is something of a shock, but not every person that doesn’t support your candidate is a DNC shill. I have voted Republican since I was 18, first election I ever voted in was for Bush and I voted for Republican governor candidate Mark Earley (who lost). I was always loyal until I figured out how I was being swindled so I voted third party last time and will do it again if Cruz is the nominee. When people figure out they’re being screwed, they get angry. The answer isn’t to continue to insult and shit on those people….

  • Torcer

    This is why I ask for a Yes or No answer – a true Conservative would simply answer yes and move on.

  • Kevin R.

    Trump has a 60 percent UNFAVORABLE rating nationally. If Trump is the republican candidate millions of people will stay home and not vote. He will lose. The democrat will win.

    You might as well be working for the DNC.

  • sunshine

    Because I don’t support the candidate you do, I should be working for the DNC. Makes total sense. So basically either way the Repub candidate will lose because like I said, many will not hold their nose and vote for the same old same old yet AGAIN.

  • sunshine

    But that’s the point….what is “true conservatism”? Who defines it? What definition are we using this week?

  • Kevin R.

    No. I’m saying Trump will not win the general election. His national unfavorables are very high. He will suppress the republican vote nationally in the general. In light of this fact you might as well be working for the DNC… and you very well could be.

  • Alphamail

    The reason we lost in 2012 was because of people like you who gave the election to Obama by not voting. At least we now know you’ve been working for the DNC since at least 2012.

  • sunshine

    I’ll tell you now, Cruz won’t win it either. You can keep repeating the same thing over and over again, but Cruz simply will not win. Like I have said over and over, nobody is going to rush to the polls to vote for him. The “voting against” the other candidate strategy is played out also. If you want to stake an election on it, cool. Frankly, I think this country is pretty much toast no matter what, especially if we have people that are still drinking the establishment Kool-Aid. If you think Cruz is some champion of conservatism or will do anything but what his masters tell him, I don’t know what to tell you except good luck with that. Just don’t be surprised when only the left shows up to vote their candidate in. Not “DNC” anything, just plain facts.

    .

    “Your presence here is merely to discourage conservatives”

    What a pantload!

    Cruz hasn’t a hope-in-h3ll of being nominated and even less of being elected in the general election.

    His Elmer Gantry schtick may have played in Iowa, but most people in the SE have seen tent meetings and know the drill on that one.

    You have every right in the world to support/vote for Senator Cruz, but you have no right to demand that people take his candidacy seriously.

    He’s lost SC and NV… the only votes he may have picked up from people quitting is Dr. Carson, but Senator Cruz has also poisoned that well.

    Does it bother you that in some ways Trump is indistinguishable from Bernie Sanders?

    Donald Trump says he’s ‘very similar’ to Bernie Sanders

    Donald Trump got tripped up by a description of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) at a Wednesday night town hall in Charleston, South Carolina when he mistook the Democratic presidential candidate’s defining traits for his own.

    “The candidate is considered a political outsider by all the pundits. He’s tapping into the anger of the voters, delivers a populist message. He believes everyone in the country should have healthcare,” Mika Brzezinski, moderator and co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, said to Trump. “He advocates for hedge fund managers to pay higher taxes. He’s drawing thousands of people at his rallies and bringing in a lot of new voters to the political process, and he’s not beholden to any super PAC. Who am I describing?”

    “Or of any special interests or any donors,” Trump added. “You’re describing Donald Trump.”

    “Actually,” Brzezinski replied, “I was describing Bernie Sanders.”

    “Oh, that’s good,” Trump replied, before conceding that he and Sanders actually do have some things in common. “There’s one thing we’re very similar on: He knows that our country is being ripped off big-league — big-league — on trade.”

    Trump was quick to emphasize the differences between him and the socialist senator, however. “The problem is he can’t do anything about it,” Trump said. “He doesn’t understand what’s happening.”

    Nope. You can tell he’s going to lose by who’s supporting him.

  • lawngren

    That’s the kind of request one gets from an experienced debater or a lawyer trying to overwhelm an opponent he’s afraid of. Your lack of sincerity is obvious. But here’s a response anyway:

    Ted Cruz first rose to national prominence in 2012 with his surprising win of a U.S. Senate seat … bachelor’s at Princeton University … There he became an award-winning debater … going on to Harvard Law School … After law school, Cruz worked as a law clerk for several judges, including Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist from 1996 to 1997 … adviser on the 2000 presidential campaign of George W. Bush – Cruz explained to The New Yorker, “I essentially had responsibility for all the policy that touched on law” during the campaign … He also acted on Bush’s behalf during the fight for a recount of Florida’s election results … After a stint as associate deputy attorney general at the Department of Justice, Cruz became director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission in July 2001. His time at the FTC was marked by successful defeats of collective bargaining proposals between physicians and health care programs … In 2003, Cruz became the solicitor general of Texas. He argued a total of eight cases before the U.S. Supreme Court during his five years in the post, among his victories a case from 2008 in which he advocated for the preservation of the death penalty for a Mexican citizen convicted of raping and murdering two teenage girls … He was instrumental in bringing about the government shutdown that year after his 21-hour speech against President Barack Obama’s healthcare plan … As Solicitor General of Texas, Cruz submitted the amici brief which won Heller v DC, recognizing the 2nd Amendment as an individual right.

  • Alphamail

    .
    Let’s see…Reagan bad…Bush bad,..John Roberts bad…now Cruz bad. Do we detect a theme here? A theme coming from a number of trolls lately – all sounding like MSNBC and Chris Mathews – all feeling the necessity to bash republicans to get a point across? Don’t tell me you can’t get the same points across by exposing progressives – unless the motive is to cause division.
    .
    I remind you, the court still has a right tilt even with some unsavory decisions by some right-minded judges. I remind you further of a couple of justices named Sotomayor and Kagan whom no one seems to mention, who are infinitely worse than anyone now mentioned…might that be because you all belong to the same political party?
    .
    Remember how we found out later how the Michael Brown protesters and BLM supporters were paid to protest and actually riot. Wouldn’t it be even more beneficial for lib bigwigs to pay trolls to go on a conservative website and pose as a conservative, but bash and trash (not one, but all) Republican candidates?
    .
    And don’t attempt to tell me that Cruz, who taught Supreme Court litigation at the University of Texas Law School, who clerked for conservative Chief Justice Rehnquist, who worked to help impeach Clinton, and who has argued many cases before the Supreme Court, isn’t a journeyman legal expert more qualified than Trump – who can’t even be called an apprentice.

  • Bill the Cat

  • J.j. Cintia

    So basically you’re saying you trust a lawyer more than a businessman? Why doesn’t that surprise me? If Reagan can appoint one of the Worst Supreme Court Justices of All Time, what the hell does it even matter? The GOP are a bunch of wishy washing spineless cowards anyway. Even with a Majority, they get rolled like bums every time. Anyone who isn’t a Communist will probably be Borked while that Clown Ryan talks about working together anyway right?

  • Bill the Cat

    Babbling nonsense….

    Again, the question was to enumerate *SENATOR* Cruz’s accomplishments, I gave you all the time you wanted and you came up with nothing. Zip… zilch… nada.

  • Bill the Cat

    Gentlemen,

    Since I’ve more entertaining ways to waste my time than telling you all something you’re going to learn quickly on your own — Cruz will be lucky to get re-elected to the Senate — kindly consider this my response to your inevitable, whiny followups about how only people voting for Cruz are “True Conservatives,” and all that other smarmy nonsense.

    Enjoy tomorrow, as it will be difficult for you to keep lying to yourselves after SC and Nevada. No matter.

    FWIW, if there is a Divine Intervention and somehow Cruz wins (he’s [marginally] better than Sanders), I would vote for him… but all of you know he’s unelectable, and I’ll never be required to fulfill that hollow promise.

    That said, best wishes for voting more Democrats out in 2016.

    “Words mean things” – that’s why I answered your question with facts. You asked someone to list some accomplishments of Ted Cruz and I did. Now the goalposts change and words suddenly lose their meaning. You are the hypocrisy of progressivism.

  • Alphamail

    .
    Cruz taught Supreme Court litigation at the University of Texas Law School, clerked for conservative Chief Justice Rehnquist of the U.S. Supreme Court, worked in the attempt to impeach Clinton, and argued many cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. He’s an unequivocal debate champion who would absolutely destroy either Clinton or Sanders. You are the definition of stubborn progressivism who is so tied to your emotions and so absolutely afraid of facts that contradict your feelings that you turn your back on those who offer sensibility and reason, and you attack them for trying to provide clarity.

    .
    Here is a case Cruz won before the U.S. Supreme Court that curtailed international intentions (can you say U.N.?) that were intent on usurping (controlling) American state laws.

    That magical fairy of capitalism has sank all the boats but a few yachts, and they seem kinda leaky with the Dow crumbling. That BS of how capitalism made America great is just a fairy tale. Henry Ford wasn’t a capitalist, he was an industrialist. He fucking hated Wall Street and the Federal Reserve. Guys like Henry Ford built America and the bankers caused the Depression with their fake money that makes everyone but them poor. They contribute NOTHING but debts. We have a mountain of debt, and now no one can pay it. This capitalism is just the Love of Money. The Love of Money is THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

  • Real Logic

    Just remember, it was the actions of Bush that made our current state of affairs, not to mention the election of Barrack Obama, possible. For this reason, I give him the title of worst Republican president ever.

    As a true conservative, I blame people like you and those that you elected for where we are today. The GOP is now a non-functional entity. We might as well burn down the house and rebuild now.

    Vote for Cruz if you wish to keep empowering the progressives.

Where was your pompous ass when we all voted for the only Republican candidate in the race? Let me apply some real logic…you were voting against Bush which means you voted for Al Gore or John Kerry. If you didn’t vote for them but voted third party you still voted for them. If you didn’t vote you set yourself up to be an “I told you so.” so you could forever condescend to those who voted. If that’s the case, and you shirked your voting responsibility, then you lost your right to criticize those who voted.

    1. The word is Freedom and the Free Market not the pejorative that Marx created.

    I agree – giving away more money to politics than I make, makes you a far better man than me. I never thought of it that way. That’s a fine definition of success and a great barometer to compare yourself to others – you certainly must be very proud of yourself.

    With what little amount of money I have left over each month, I don’t put it into politics I usually give it to the Gospel Mission down the street in the form of turkeys or hams, or when it’s freezing outside my daughter and I will hand out stocking caps and gloves. We also give to the wonderful local children’s cancer hospital when there’s extra. That’s an area I’m going to have to work on however after hearing your comment – I’m going to stop giving so much to charity from now on, so I can pour it all into politics and become a better man.

  • jfmoris110

    You know who gets away with un-PC talk? (D)emocrats do.

    The media has not even started bashing Trump yet – they’ve mostly been bashing his followers, MANIPULATING US into reflexive support of the guy who is saying what needs to be said. As much as I’ve enjoyed Trumps disrespect of (D)irtbag pieties, I’ve always hoped that someone with an ACTUAL CONSERVATIVE RECORD would take up the banner.

    If Trump gets the nomination, he will start “moving to the center” how will he look then? The press will start attacking him in earnest – even as a public figure, he has not been subjected to vetting by a hostile press, what will the press dig up on him? make up?

    My only objection to Cruz has been the NBC thing, I think 2 native parents are needed. But Cubans are some of the best anti-communists.

  • jfmoris110

    Yes, it was done -easily, quickly and inexpensively, too.
    But that was back in the days of common sense and a government that was on the side of the citizens.

    Trump deserves a medal for speaking out and getting heard. But the presidency should go to someone with a conservative record.

  • maggieyoyo

    Apples and oranges: Colin Powell (black) admitted his primary motivation in voting for Obiteme was – wait for it – the color of his skin (semi-black). Thomas Sowell (black), a very well respected conservative, endorses Cruz (white), based on his conviction that Cruz will be “steadfast” against those that seek to destroy the country.

    Explain how America saved the world from fascists and willingly sacrificed for victory, in WWI, WWII, and the Cold War without ever demanding or forcefully taking land or treasure from its defeated adversaries…..unlike any nation has ever allowed.

    Explain how the American economy, who’s lower class is still in the top 1% of wealthiest citizens of the world, continues to provide luxury and technology to its people at a rate the world has not seen at any point in history.

    Explain how within 100 years the United States went from fledgling country to world power. And within 50 more, became the richest nation the world has ever known.

    Now explain no nation has ever come close to achieving what America has in regards to wealth, individual freedom, and charity.

    The world has been blanketed by socialism, communism, and tyranny throughout time. No nation has dreamed of what America has risen above….for all its citizens.

    The poorest family in America has more hope and potential for their future than the richest in most, if not all other countries.

    We have unlimited examples of socialism failing….and one great example of what happens when capitalism is allowed to flourish, the greatest, most prosperous nation the world has ever known.

    Why is the national socialist left pulling for Trump?

    Over the past few days it has become apparent that unknown commentators on various conservative sites have been plaguing them with the usual tactics endemic to the childish tactics of the national socialist left.

    Such tactics range from Strawman arguments and false narratives to the regurgitation of childish irrelevant commentary disconnected to the discussion at hand.

    When one asks of their political background the usual responses vary from the issuing of red herring tangents to childish responses bereft of any logic or substance.

    One must ask why are they making this concerted effort to support someone they would seemingly oppose?

    Well, there are several reasons – now of which should engender any encouragement of their actions.

    1. They recognize a ‘fellow traveler’ when they see it – some where not surprises when Trump say some very similar characteristics with Bernie Sanders.

    2. They see Trump as a very flawed individual who they see being easy to beat by the national socialist presidential candidate from the left.

    I’m laughing at your persistence, but I’m not arguing with you about Cruz having any chance of winning :>)

    Get it now?

  • Bill the Cat

    God told you that, right?

    You don’t even hear how crazy you are, do you?

  • lawngren

    You will see it happen.

  • Bill the Cat

    HAHAHah hah well, I’m sorry for you! Get some nootropics and maybe you can lift it up a bit more!

    HAHAH hahahaha… 🙂

    No, I’m a hard-right fiscal conservative, and have probably donated more to conservative candidates in the last couple years than you earned.

    Can you answer the question.

    Who are you supporting?

  • Bill the Cat

    Since you appear to have been driven completely around the bend by Mr. Cruz’s losses, just re-read the message below for my reply to your next, inevitable, demented post ;>)

    Teddy and the Calgary Cruzbillies lost, little guy.

    Man up, deal with it and move on.

    Oh, BTW, did you see that Cruz has not apologized for lying about Rubio?

    So you are supposedly a ‘hard-right fiscal conservative’ and yet you cannot discuss the issue like an adult. Meanwhile your childish diatribes are replete with false narratives and juvenile taunts.

    Are you now running away?

    Matthew 16:1-4:

    “The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven.

    Jesus replied, ‘When evening comes, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,’ and
    in the morning, “Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and
    overcast.” You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you
    cannot interpret the signs of the times. A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.’ Jesus then left them and went away.”

  • Bill the Cat

    Ah, so you’re “Jesus,” now?

    Good to know.

  • lawngren

    Just passing on His words. But if you’re not bright enough to figure that out, there wasn’t much point, was there?

  • Bill the Cat

    So Jesus whispered his words in your ear, did he?

    Seriously, dude, you are 5hit-house rat crazy… thank you for not supporting Trump.

    Followups from the guy who has Jesus whispering in his ears ignored.
