There is a revolution brewing within the GOP.  The left wing of the GOP is scarred to death and trying to subdue it as fast as possible.  One thing is for sure, the lines are sharply divided and no Congressman or woman can be on the sidelines.

There is no revolution brewing.  Even among Republicans, there is no stomach for shutting down the government.

Cruz and Lee are leading a very vocal minority within the GOP.    There will come a time when they need other Republican Senators to support some issue of theirs, and they won't get it.

Being called a Nazi enabler does tend to stick in one's craw for a while.

That's typical of the RINOS! It's not about getting even, but doing what is right. Are you saying the republicans will do the wrong thing to get even with Cruz? I imagine they will because they consider him a young upstart who is rocking the boat. That's not good for their social club.

I listened to Cruz on the opening segment of Rush today.
He is inspirational.
It is rare that I can have someone say EXACTLY the things that I feel and believe.

Ted Cruz is such a man.

No.  He will want something for Texas that nobody else cares about and they won't support him. 

You think it was OK for Cruz to liken Republicans to Nazi enablers?

Ted Cruz is a leader the likes of which we have not seen in a LONG time and YOU had better come to grips with that fact!

So calling those on your side who disagree with you over tactics Nazi enablers is OK.  Got it.


I guess wacky birds would be better?

 Of course those on the right cowering in the corner afraid of the big bad democrats/Nazis would be considered Nazi enablers to  me too!!!

 :amen: The RINOS will be long gone, and Cruz and other conservatives will take their places. It's way past time to vote those suckers out.

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

If Ted Cruz expects to lead a disparate Republican party (as Ronald Reagan did), he'd better stop with the vitriol and trashing members of his own party.

The Democrats are the opposition.  Training fire on Republicans is counterproductive.

His point was not about Nazis. It was about the dangers of appeasement. He did not liken ANYONE to a "Nazi Enabler", so please knock it off, m'kay?

The dangers of appeasement within the context of enabling the Nazis.  It's clear who Cruz thinks the enablers are.

Nice try.

Cruz doesn't trash anyone. He is the one being the target. And, you misread his Nazi remark.

The "enablers" were not Nazis, they were Britons. Our allies and friends.

Nice try. But thanks for playing.

Yes.  The Britons enabled the Nazis in WWII by appeasing them.  You don't know your history.

No one has EVER won anything by appeasing the enemy! THAT is the point of Cruz's statement and YOU damned well know it. Enough!

  Cruz was comparing those who argued against his style, particularly the MSM, to defund  Obamacare to those who were more than willing to appease the Nazis during World War II. And, he is right. The MSM appears more than willing to destroy this nation by following Obama's lead.

NOPE. Totally wrong.
Those enablers have ripped the heart and soul out of the Republican party to where it is no longer recognizable from a wing of the dimocrat party.
Time to take a stand.
The time is now.
