The most charitable interpretation of Ted Cruz and his supporters is that they are willing to see the Republican Party weakened in the short run, in hopes that they will be able to take it over in the long run, and set it on a different path as a more purified conservative party.

Cruz doesn't care if the Republicans never win another majority or the Presidency if he can paint himself as the man who's standing in the breach, keeping the wolves at bay.

Even Thomas Sowell has figured out that Cruz is about Cruz.  Period.
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

At the current rates of breeding, the Republicans will never win another majority either way. To do so would require surrender on the most important issues-- debt, entitlement, government dependency, corruption of the masses-- in the hopes that maybe the unwashed masses that continue to invade this once decent country may get sick of the Democratic Party and see the Democrat-Lites as a viable option to continue to plunge America into oblivion. Even if that happened, would it even be worth it?

As long as they get their food stamps, Medicare, Medicaid, Socialist Security, pensions, VA stuff, and other government bennies, who cares if the country goes down the tubes? It's not as if the government checks will ever bounce someday, they can always tax "the rich" some more, or borrow-- that's free money!

The American people are corrupt. Those who understand the gravity of the situation are grossly outnumbered by the people who view the above paragraph as truth. Sowell's analogy to Nazi Germany isn't valid: the Democrats and Republicans all want to defend the bennies. The GOP may act like it is fiscally conservative, but look at the shutdown aftermath: they gave up after a couple weeks, gave them everything AND paid the government employees for doing nothing, while the deficit continues to sit in the hundreds of billions; then Boehner goes out and denounces the very actions he had made as if he had been forced to. This is ludicrous. We have made zero progress. Obamacare is still in place. The Democrats have gotten away with refusing to negotiate. And the Republicans have aided and abetted it, willingly.

The republic is lost.

"Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."  -  President Donald J Trump

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
...They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security
