Cruz ran in the general election? When?

:sword:                


November 2012.  He beat Paul Sadler, the Democrat.

I had no idea you were a Texan. Do you work for any particular campaigns? Do you think Perry can rise above and do well in the debates?

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

It is clear to me that the majority of the players on the field in DC do not want the same things we do! That is why we have a TEA party movement in the first place!

I would also add that those of us on my side of the argument have been FAR to accommodating of those types in the past and I, for one, am done with that!

Yes, I agree with you.  But for many it seems that this is still an "open issue."  I think that we will all see the truth as things play out, further.  Like many things lately, and I think that you also share this sentiment at times, "I hope that I am proven wrong."

No.  I don't work for any campaigns.  I have never given a dime to a political candidate in my life.

I don't know about Rick Perry.  I like him, he gave a good speech at CPAC (what parts of it I saw), but he has a big hole to climb out of as the "Ooops" candidate.

I don't.  I find there are peculiar views here.  No, it's not the views.  The righteous indignation of some seems over the top. 

Peculiar views predominate everywhere.  What passes for righteous indignation here would pass for the plainest of milque toast in many other places, left as well as right.

Hmmph!    I got 'righteous indignation' that isn't even opened yet.      :beer:

Ok.  And there are plenty of reasons why I would not vote for a so-called "true conservative."  Why isn't the Fourth Amendment, or any of the other amendments, or the rest of the Constitution, just as important as the First and Second Amendments?  While we're at it, why have conservatives so often pushed to make it a crime to burn the American flag?  One cannot pick and choose who gets the benefit of the First Amendment.  Second, the number of inconsistencies implicit in that list are frightening.  Limited government is inconsistent with being against gay marriage because it interposes the State between two individuals.  Furthermore, the recognition of various relationships between individuals and the attendant legal obligations is generally a matter of state law - one of the amendments you downplay - and so the federal government's presence in the issue of gay marriage is doubly offensive.  Abortion is another issue where the government has no business, and yet conservatives consistently want the federal government to ban abortion.  A blanket opposition to amnesty in any way shape or form is simply a refusal to recognize reality, and I'd rather not vote for someone who cannot discern reality.  Deficit spending?  Then I suppose a true conservative would be opposed to people using mortgages to buy a house?  Borrowing to buy a house is deficit spending.

Well reasoned. I agree. The constitution is not a menu from which to pick and choose. It's the whole enchilada or it's nothing but Democrat stew. (Dang, must be getting close to lunchtime here)
